I always seem to have Wi-Fi connection problems as well. I haven't been able to finish a single battle, Friend List or not, just because of this little problem.

The fact that it was virtually impossible to connect using Wi-Fi in the UK prior Gen V.
People thinking that focus blast, hydro pump and similar moves will hit every time. Many times when my opponent's moves miss and I proceed to beat them, they go like "you only won because X attack missed". I mean come on! The move's supposed to miss sometime or the other.

what grinds my gears? lets see...
-The Freeze status condition...
-people who ask for outrageous offers on the GTS like level 9 and under legendaries...
-the pokemon anime
-Pikachu's cousins weren't made a LITTLE bit tougher
-old generation "Fans"
-times when your pokemon is taken out in one hit, when is is NOT a critical hit!
-Dragon types as a whole (Except for like Dialga, maybe Giritina)
-Trainers in gyms that have a countering type merely to smite you
-Trainers that use potions just when you're about to fell their pokemon, and it was so hard to get it there
-Cynthia, because fighting here is a pain
-ghost types, they want you dead
-General hate on a certain pokemon i like because it's not "fit for competitive play"
-searching for evolution stones in dust clouds...

The fact that PWT's rental battles in Black and White 2 wasn't done as well as it could have. There was only like types (normal and master), no continuity (if you win one round, you don't progress to an increasingly challenging round) and no incentive to carry on. In Diamond and Pearl, battle factory was a million times better, so much so that I can still replay it to this day. In Diamond and Pearl's version, the Pokemon were mostly fully evolved (in B&W2, most of them, especially in the normal version, are a mix of unevolved Pokemon), the rounds got increasingly more challenging with legendaries eventually joining the fray in later rounds, and even Thorton being a boss at the end of every three rounds, and because the rounds continued, you couldn't just cheat and quit to essentially select your team.
PWT was entertaining for a bit, mainly due to the gym leader battles, but Diamond and Pearl and even Emerald had a much better rental battle system with huge longevity.

PM me your code if you add mine. Mainly up for Mario Kart 7 but don't mind other suggested games if I have them!
Getting far too many female Stunkies when I'm aiming for Adamant, Jolly or Lax males. I don't have a problem with female Stunky normally. Female Stunky is cool. However, my gripe with it is that I want its Egg move, Foul Play to be passed down when I start hunting for a shiny Stunky for use in online, and females don't pass down the moves.
So as you can expect... it gets annoying. Very. Very. Fast.

Current Badge Quest shinies (Platinum):
1. (RE; 990) 2. ???, Valley Windworks (RE; 1800)
???, Route 20 (White 2) (180, RE)
Also the ridiculous amount of Full Restores Elite Four and Gym Leaders could go through on one Pokemon, especially when their Pokemon has Sturdy.. *cough* Colress *cough* He is badass though
And that one trainer in Canalave Gym. Oh I see you brought a fire type to the steel type gym, ALLOW ME TO SEND OUT MY AZUMARILL.

Oh boy... Where do I begin...
-Smogon's Competitive Battling rules. They just do. I personally go by the official rules, like PWT's rules.
-Cheaters that take the easy way. I don't know why they do it; sucks all the fun and the feeling of accomplishment away.
-Not being able to have a male Surfing Pikachu or a Female Flying Pikachu.
--Not being about to keep HM moves on Pokémon to transfer them to the next Gen, which is worse when the HM is event exclusive for that Pokémon. (Like Surfing/Flying Pikachu.)
---Not being able to teach Surf or Fly to a Pikachu by a special In Game move tutor...
-Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. I didn't hate the game. I just hate the story. It's hard to play it anymore after the first time I played through it. I can play Colosseum as much as I want with no issues. To be honest, as far as I'm concerned, to me XD is just a "what if" sequel. Even if though it isn't, I consider it as that...
-New Type Speculation in general. (To clarify, I hated it because of the arguing. I particularly hate the Light-type speculation. I am very welcoming to the new Fairy-type.)
-The fact that Reshiram/Zekrom/Arceus/Celebi/Victini/Deoxys*/Shaymin*/Darkrai*/Keldeo/Meloetta cannot be legitimately Shiny. *There are some legit shiny versions. However, the events for this to be possible have happened and are done.
-The fact that Manaphy(PKMN Ranger)/Mew(Haley's)/Jirachi(WISHMKR) can be shiny, but it's so time consuming that they might as well just be impossible to be shiny...
-When people say there won't be Ruby & Sapphire Remakes. (Not trying to start any debate, but I'm just saying since we are on the next gen handheld, it's not particularly impossible...)
-When people argued about Sylveon's type.
-The lack of Manaphy Events

I absolutely hate when people hate on grass types. They aren't that bad. Who cares if they have a lot of weaknesses. Not me. I get something else to counter it. Grass is my favorite type. Also I really don't like when people hate on 4th Gen. It's not all that bad. We got some amazing pokemon evolutions like electivire,magmortar, and weavile. I can see why people don't really like it though. But Diamond was my first game and everyone normally favors the region they started in so...yeah.
BUDDER + TORTERRAS = AWESOMENESS
Gyrados not from Lake of Rage!
Also X and Y is Kewl. TEAM FLOWERHEAD FTW (Mega Venusaur) :3
In D/P after you beat Mars and Jupiter you can't save before fighting Cyrus.
EDIT: And when you forget to save before fighting Dialga and you only have one alive pokémon and no revives or potions and your only alive pokémon is at 3 HP.

The stat-raising moves that 5th Gen introduced. God they are so cheap.
I mean seriously, Shift Gear reducing your defense or whatever and DOUBLING YOUR ATTACK AND SPEED? Klinklang is overpowered. So is Gear Grind (You literally asked for it in your thread title, OP.)
Quiver Dance is even worse. No cons, just boosting Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed with nothing to lose.

One thing that ticked me off was that I couldn't trade my LEGIT Probopass on the GTS. It gave me an error message
Apparently, the system thought it had an inappropriate name...
(I never renamed it)
