What would you consider to be the most forgettable pokémon in the series? On the top of my head, I can think of Dunsparce, Farfetch'd, Luvdisc, Nosepass, and Tangela among others.

May 21st, 2009, 11:15 PM
nosepass and tangela are no longer forgettable due to their 4th gen evos.

Brock's geodude... hahaha.

Ratata doesn't get much attention *cough* obvious reasons *cough*

Otherwise my brain can't function to think of more.

Dunsparce deserves a little attention and love. :)

Clamperl defiantly, There was this other Pokemon from Jhoto, It was like a puffer fish ? What ever that one was.

You mean Quilfish right?? I remember it.

Quilfish, Luvdisc, Corsola and Clamperl. They make too many Water Pokemon, that's why.

Out of the 5 seasons i watched Farfetch'd got like 2-3 appearances. And i agree with Clamperl.

There were lots of good ideas, Ledyba.

I haven't seen a spinda really.
I agree with a lot of people above about Clamperl. Not a bad pokemon actually, just never really seen it.

Sunflora? Sunkern? Hoppip? Smeargle?

Lt_Nite
May 22nd, 2009, 08:48 AM
The biggest ones that comes to my mind is always Dunsparce and Stantler.

May 22nd, 2009, 09:58 AM
Dunsparce maybe..? i haven't heard of it for a long time..

Silhouette
May 22nd, 2009, 10:19 AM
Spinarak, Ariados, Sandslash, and Mesprit. Lol, joking about Mesprit. But I can say that I never think about Mesprit.

Gymnotide
May 22nd, 2009, 11:08 AM
Clamperl is pretty bad, even with those exclusive items :P
Smeargle should not be on the forgotten list. He's unique and his ability to learn everything is cool.

And @ Swellow; that bad boy with the Toxic Orb, Guts, and Facade + STAB = yesplz.

Dunsparce always shows up on these threads, but he's actually one of my favorites.

I dare say we add Nidorina to this list. No one likes her. She's stupid.
I'll also suggest Politoed.

Rattata is underrated. Sure it's common and its stats aren't that good but Raticate's fairly decent actually.

In fact, I think it's about time Rattata had another evolution.

Gymnotide
May 22nd, 2009, 11:47 AM
Rattata gets tons of attention, by the way.
Hell, F.E.A.R. is named after it.

Rattata L1 @ Focus Sash
-- Endeavor
-- Quick Attack

Then, other Pokemon stole the strategy from it.

Inkfingers
May 22nd, 2009, 12:33 PM
Hey gymno, It's fine that you forgot nidorina and all, but that doesn't mean she's stupid. I happen to really like nidorina, she's in my top 50 to 70. So please watch what you say. I understand that's your opinion, but some things are better left unsaid, and inside your head(not my fault it rhymes)

BHwolfgang
May 22nd, 2009, 02:53 PM
Any Pokémon that has a horrible stats or no sheer omnipotence have the chance of being cast away.

With that being said, I have to say that most of the Bug Pokémons are generally ignored.

Qwilfish and Delibird are long gone.

Sweet Candace
May 22nd, 2009, 04:54 PM
I say Ledyba, Spinarak, Spinda, Dunsparce, Qwlifish and Luvdisc. They're the Pokemon the need some love.

Gymnotide
May 22nd, 2009, 04:59 PM
And some more candidates:
Delcatty, Crawdaunt, and Gulpin.

1st Gen: Umm I dunno, probably Scyther or Pinsir.
2nd Gen: Definately Dunsparce or Shuckle
3rd Gen: Feebas lol. I knew about Milotic but I couldn't find it's preevolution until someone told me.
4th Gen: Finneon. Didn't know it existed until I beat the Elite Four =P.

May 22nd, 2009, 05:37 PM
Qwilfish!
Most of the posters didn't even list it in their lists is how much Qwilfish is forgotten.
(Confusing sentence ftw.)

DarthWaffles
May 22nd, 2009, 05:41 PM
Dunsparce, Spinda, Stantler, Quilfish, Luvdisc and Farfecth'd.

They need more love. Personally, Farfetch'd is one of my favourite Pokemon.

Ciervo Volante
May 22nd, 2009, 05:46 PM
I always forget about finneon. I'll see a picture of it, and be like, "It's... it's that one pokemon. You know. That one that I can't remember the name of."

I can remember the names of pretty much every other one, except for finneon, and it's evo... (or was it pre-evo?) that I... can't remember the name of.

WHAT DID YOU SAY?!? *Body slams*

Kidding, I guess it depends on which pokemon are your favs.
I think Delibird is the most forgotten, no one ever talks about him.

Inkfingers
May 23rd, 2009, 08:41 PM
Gymno, I'm sorry. I can give sarcasm really good, but can't take it too well. And it's kind of hard to tell since I can't hear the tone of your voice, so that's probably why too. ehy do you think I have a jk after shut the fun cup?

Sunflora? Sunkern? Hoppip? Smeargle?

Yup, those are really neglected. Smeargle may be an exception, because of its awesome signature move, Sketch. But WHY does it have to have such sucky stats? It could at least have more average stats (if that makes sense. Enough points in its stats to be more usable in battles, at least. But not too much stats added to make it completely broken in the metagame).

Luvdisc and Torkoal are really forgettable. Those things desperately need powerful evolutions.

Actually, almost every Water- and Grass-type Pokemon is forgettable, due to the fact that there are so darn many of them. The sheer amount of 'em dazzles me. All the butterfly-/moth-based Pokemon are (almost) forgettable, as well.

The Mareep family isn't mentioned much these days... :t179: :t180: :t181: I'm sure they'll have a resurgence in HG/SS, thanks to the awesome Jasmine! :)

Wait...did I forget one? Oh, I remember now:

PHIONE. :cer_pissed:
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/c/c1/ArtPhione.jpg
Wasting a whole frickin' slot in the Pokedex, as well as wasting an article and data space on Bulbapedia! Manaphy ripoff! And exactly what are you supposed to be? You sure don't look like a sea angel or water nymph. Instead of a evolution of Luvdisc/Torkoal/Smeargle/Banette/other Pkmn or getting another cool new Pokemon, we're stuck with Phione, the poorest excuse of a Pokemon EVER. Even worse than Probopass, Spiritomb, and Carnivine, all of which I utterly despise. Any Pokemon/aquatic animal/store receipt is better than Phione.

It doesn't even have a purpose except to show that a Legendary Pokemon can breed (which I don't really care for. All other baby Pokemon have a purpose since they play a part in showing certain Pokemon's premature stages (Snorlax as Munchlax, Pichu as Pikachu, etc.). If you can't even evolve into what you're derived from, what's the point of you, Phione? At least evolving into Manaphy would reduce your abysmal suckage level.
Mewtwo :t150: is an exception since it has major differences from its predecessor, Mew. :t151: Plus, Mewtwo is actually cool.
Pachirisu is another exception since it looks radically different from the Pichu Family.
Plusle and Minun would've been just as annoying if it weren't for slight differences and their roles as each other's partner. :t311: :t312:

[S-HIGHLIGHT]In a nutshell, Phione, you're so forgettable that even if

For me, probably Anorith. I saw it on a Pokemon website and thought it was fake.

Erm...not at all. 2nd generation Pokémon were much better than the ones that came after them, in my opinion, and I remember them quite well, thank you very much. :D

Exceptions would probably be Ledyba and Ledian. They never seemed to get much attention. I know I always ignored them.

How dare you? I never stopped played Crystal until I'd played through the game, training up almost every Pokemon for my team at least once (That makes for a lot of restarts, I promise) - even though Ledian never was quite as good as my Ariados... I even taught it Thunderpunch to use it in the E4 against Lance's Gyarados, and it won! :D Hah, take that.

(Ariados pwned it every single time apart from that though, it knew Sludge Bomb and were rather reliant, unlike that little critter.)

Oh yeah, I forgot about Riolu. IMO, Riolu is a lame attempt to make a 'baby' form of the awesome Lucario. If Lucario's pre-evo was axed in Gen. 5 (just like I hope Phione will be), no one would care or notice. Well, I wouldn't, though I know that there are some Riolu fans, sadly. I just hate how Lucario got dwarfed down like that...

Ledyba's family rarely appears in Pokemon conversations, as well... :t165: :t166:
