View Full Version : Something Different: Least Favorite Thing About Pokemon

This involves all generations, websites, games, consoles - all Pokemon related items.

1.) Pikachu following you around in Yellow. Who wants a tag team partner EVERYWHERE YOU GO!!!?? [back to pokeball or die*]

2.) Fake cheats. I don't use anything but Gameshark after beating the game, but lordy, who falls for these?:
"How to get Jirachi: Raise 30 pokemon to level 100. Release the rest. Fill Box 1 with 30 level 100 pokemon. Leave a level 100 Magikarp in your party. Release pokemon in this order: 30, 1, 29, 2, 28, 3, etc. etc. Save and turn off game. Your Jirachi will be in Box 14, Slot 30."
Seriously? HOW COULD YOU FALL FOR IT?

3.) Last but not least, I don't know why, but Bruno from the Elite Four really, really annoys me. I just want to hit him, especially when he turns away from you when he loses. This isn't DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Bruno, get a grip.

Anyone like to share theirs?

Aw, I liked Pikachu following you around in Yellow... If it bothered you, why'd you buy it?? ^^;

Anyway... hmmm...

The Gyms; Sure they can be fun when you battle the gym leader... but theres sooo many gyms that have traps, and secrets, way too many trainers around corners, and floors made of ice that you can fall through.... God forbid you could just walk in and meet the freaking Gym Leader!! ><; ....*breathes*....

I bought it because I like to try them all out myself, which then proceeds to me having to beat the game. Gotta buy 'em all.

I hate how Team Rocket is reall goofy. That part is directed at a slighly youger crowd... Also, how do people make money? That always amazes me... or do they get money like they do in the games, by winning battles?

I really really... can't stand their weird jokes. Like... they're meant to be funny, really... who'd fall for those jokes? Especially when they try and make funny little 'links' between the pokemon and the episode title... like... 'Tracy gets bugged'.... No... you just... don't. >___>

I suppose the younger viewers like their corny lines...

In the anime, how the normal rules never seem to apply to Ash (because we all know that a normal Pikachu can TOTALLY beat rock types with an electric attack. *cough*). I hate hate HATE that. And also, back around the time I stopped watching it, how they used the same recycled plot for EVERY EPISODE. It was like, okay, I know they're filler, but you can AT LEAST come up with a more interesting plot than the one that the episode before it used. x.X

firstly the tv show is bad because of the animation if u look carefully u will see dat the characters dont need to breathe until they are out of breath, not even in close ups. actually they dont move apart from a little triange for their mouthes cheap cheap cheap.
therer are no probs wif the games apart from battle tower (did ayone else spend weeks getting a team to win 100 battles to find out u dont get anything but a dam statue nobody ever notices) and i would like all pokemon to be catchable without goin to nintendo events that dont go near europe, tis all

Hmmm... My least favorite thing? How every game seems to end when you beat the Elite Four. Yeah, they've got Battle Tower and Battle Frontier (both very nice), but that gets boring really fast. I liked the days of Silver and Gold, when there was an entirely different region (Kanto) to visit. Sure, it wasn't as big, but it was nice to have. Nothing beats having sixteen badges.

I guess what I'm saying is, I hate how short the games seem, and how the Elite Four suck, and yet they're your final story-affecting challenge.

Personally, the fact that the anime characters haven't aged AT ALL kinda annoys me. I mean, come on! How long has the show been running? Has Ash shown ANY interest in a girl?!

*laughs* Okay, and I guess the fact that you can have Pikachu follow you in yellow, but you can never have another Pokemon follow you in any other game. I'l love to see an advancement where you can choose a Pokemon in your party to let follow you around. I like that kind of intimacy with your Pokemon is wonderful.

Electric can beat rock types, its ground types they can't beat. I was watching an old episode on YouTube and they even said that about a Sandshrew and when Pikachu battled a Cubone...dunno about the newer one's though.

Okay, the thing I hate the most about Pokemon is Ash, he's too much of the steryotipical happy-go-lucky hero who has a personality comparable to cheese.

Oh, and I also can't stand the Team Rockett motto, I would like it better if they didn't have to say it IN EVERY FREAKIN' EPISODE!

June 30th, 2006, 09:14 PM
The repeating plot of the not important hoenn episodes.. meet someone, battle, something gets stolen/something else happens, it gets fixed, they say bye... Seriously, that is SOOO boring!

i cant really think of something else

The fact that there is always a dragon trainer in the elite four. It gets old

The fact the villan teams lack variety. Okay, ive seen your "00ber level 30 poochyena" but I dont wanna see like fifty of them. Before Im finished completeing the aqua/magma dungeon for christs sake. Then they have zubats too. It was like with team rocket. All they had was rattatas and zubats.

The fact you will spend an hour looking for chimecho. My god why is a crappy pokemon so rare. I will spend hours looking for duskull.

I hate that special typed pokemon such as Absol and Flareon specialize in attack. Then Gengar a physical type is specialized in special attack. Talk about backwards programing.

Hehe, honestly? Lots of stuff! You should hear me when I'm having a bad day and a mutterton against everything that ever exsisted or will exist ^^; For example:

Anime characters not acting their age. (How come Misty is old enough to have... er... a "figure" /cough/, but she (and everyone else) act like they're... I dunno... EIGHT!

How come no one ever has a change of clothes? O.o I mean, I'm not that tidy myself, but come on! What, does the pokemon world have a different atmosphere that prevents foul odours? :-/

Furthermore, how come everyone and their grandma can pack unlimited amount of ANYTHING while on the road? Brock carries around the whole kitchen, plus utensils, plus food for people, plus food for pokemon O.o

How come... (lol, this one is my favourite)... how come they can climb a mountain, during a blizzard wearing T-shirts? (Not to mention that tiny shorts of Misty's O.o )

As for the games: (I love them, but still) Too short, not being able to catch all pokies (and I don't mean just not being able to find EVERY evolution of EVERY pokemon walking around in grass, but not having a realistic chance of catching a first evo and evolving them yourself ) not one house has a loo O.o I mean, seriously, what, do people live from photosynthesis and don't have to eat so they don't have physiological functions? O.o And where do they have baths??? What does the Pokemon world have against personal hygene!? O.o

Um... Rock types aren't immune to Electric type attacks, Ground types are. -.- But yea, it bugs me too that Pikachu's Thunderbolt can kick any Ground type's butt, while Iron Tail takes care of Water types. =_=

Okay, the thing I hate the most about Pokemon is Ash, he's too much of the steryotipical happy-go-lucky hero who has a personality comparable to cheese.

He is now, which is the reason I hate the newer episodes. <.<
The fact you will spend an hour looking for chimecho. My god why is a crappy pokemon so rare. I will spend hours looking for duskull.

Oye! Duskull (well, Dusclops, but Duskull evolves into Dusclops, so...) and Chimecho don't suck! >D
My brother kicked butt in Netbattle with a Chimecho that knew Heal Bell, Sleep Talk, Rest and Psychic.
I hate that special typed pokemon such as Absol and Flareon specialize in attack. Then Gengar a physical type is specialized in special attack. Talk about backwards programing.
Uh... Gengar can have a full Special attack movepool if you want to. But who the heck makes Gengar an all out sweeper when there's MCGar?

I hate it in the game when the wild pokemon become too annoying.. they come to you within few seconds!!

I also didn't like the cheats in blue version.. it makes the game too simple and uninteresting.. there isn't any challenge with the missing no. code ><;;

I never said duskull sucked. I did say chimecho sucks however. I know gengar can have a full out special attacking set. But it still doesnt make since you make him ghost/poison but then give it crappy attacking stats. Meaning Gengar cant get STAB from any special moves. It still kicks butt though.

I still stand by saying Chimecho is crap. Its the worst psychic type next to, Bedlum, Spoink and Baltoy

The Anime started bothering me a lot somewhere during the Johto season for reasons already stated (repetivie, really kiddy, etc.). Now I only really watch it when I want to see the featured Pokemon in the episode or whatever.

I also agree with what Superking said- "all pokemon to be catchable without going to nintendo events." I mean, the events are a cool idea and all, and they can still give pokemon away at them, but I can't fly a plane up to New York all the time.

Other than that I would say certain HMs like Flash where you need them for one event and otherwise they are pretty useless (in my opinion it just wastes a spot where a good move can go and I end up wandering the tunnel in the dark).

Another thing is how some Pokemon are certain types but they don't learn any moves of that type.

The thing i hate is a classic. WHY DO THEY MAKE 2 VERSIONS OF THE SAME GAME. I would never cough up an extra 30 bucks just to add that stray meowth or roselia to my dex. Sure the special editions help but they are always missing at least 1 pkmn from 1 of the versions. I.E. emerald misses Zangoose(ruby) and Lunatone(saphire).

I hate the repetitiveness of the games. "Go stop team *insert name here* from getting *Insert Pokemon Here*. Then beat exactly 8 gyms and the elite four, who are actually five people, that have nothing elite about them. After that you can get a master ball, and raise your pokemon to level 100 for no apparent reason".

DragonQueenRachel
July 2nd, 2006, 05:46 PM
Personaly, I think the whole thing should've been more true to the show for the league, tournament instead of Elite 4, they could've done something different for the Elite 4, like from the Pokemon Adventures comic/manga, that would've been much cooler.

Broleta
July 5th, 2006, 04:23 AM
The way in the anime there's like 5 members of the elite 4. LOL.

There are not five members in the elite four.

There is the elite four then its the champion. You beat the elite four in sucsession to see if you are good enough to face the champion. Then when you beat the champion you get the title.

Just when too many wild Pokemon start appearing, the only thing that bothers me.

Tw1tch
July 5th, 2006, 08:28 AM
OK, I hate not being able to attend events, therefore I hate the fact that events even exist. I hate HM moves like Rock Smash, Cut, and Flash. I hate the TV show, stopped watching it during the first Johto season. I hate the need for a Mach Bike, the Acro Bike is so much better. I hate the TEAM *insert name here* and their Pokemon. Most of the EVs you get while completing the story come from Poochyenas, Carvhannas, and Zubats. I hate that nobody I know still plays Pokemon. GRRRRAAAAWWRRRR!!!!

MUSION
July 5th, 2006, 01:16 PM
I hate having to have HM's on your pokemon, I have to permanently carry a Linoone with Surf, Rock Smash, Strength and Cut. And I'm gonna have to get a Latios with Fly, Dive, Waterfall and Flash. Leving me with space for 4 pokemon.

Also I hate how you can only give your pokemon 4 moves, on the show, they learn new moves, but don't somehow forget how to use the old ones. I'd be happy with just 6 slots, 4 is too low.

In Pokemon XD I Hate The Major Buildings Where You Go And Have To Battle The Evil Bosses....I Hate It Because It Takes Forever To Beat Every Evil Grunt.....And When You Finally Do (7 Hours Later....) You Are All Weak To Fight The Boss Then Have To Run All The Way Back To That Pokehealing Spot And Heal.....

I Hate How Pokemon Jump Out At You When You Need To Get Somewhere Fast....

I Hate How They Took Misty Out Of The Anime And Dubbed A Great 10th Aniverserry Speacail With Horrible Voice Actors And How PUSA Is So Blind And Wont Stop The Change Between VA's.....

I Also Hate How Nintendo Refuses To Make A Remake Of G/S/C....

What annoys me the most is May...She doesn't really like pokemon or battling! She just wanted to travel! (1st Hoenn episode with May) I don't mind the "being a coordinator" thing but that's like the only way she gets battles basically. She doesn't really come off as to being a serious trainer. (At least Misty was serious, Please bring my sister, Misty back!)

What I also don't like is the fact that Ash didn't actually win the Kanto badges fairly. He was just given a badge because the either gym leader felt sorry for him or he just helped their gym get rid of Team Rocket. And I wish that Ash would get more pokemon instead helping other trainers catch pokemon.

I hate battling trainers only once in games other than LG/FR. When I played LG/FR, you got to battle them again but they were a lot weaker than your pokemon example: Lv. 54 Gyarados vs. Lv. 15 Caterpie(why didn't it evolve?) It annoys me so much! Guaaahhh!

July 9th, 2006, 07:52 PM
i don't really like how the game gets a bit boring after you beat the elite 4 and catch all the rare pokemon that there are only 1 of.. All thats really left is to catch and train more pokemon.. Maybe in the Diamond and Pearl versions, they can add some new features.

I really don't like how the show is just really, really... kiddyish. Corny, recycled humour, sure, makes little kids laugh of course (my little brother watches full house!!!X_X) Perhaps they could make a more tough version of the show and stick it on Adult Swim with the rest of the tough anime I see... Cartoon Network and Adult Swim are part of WB anyway.

Grr... that whingey gymleader from G/S...
The rivals from the early games too. I know they were meant to be annoying, but not so much you want to kill them in pixel form, right?
No games allowing you the oppertunity to join team rocket. It'd be fun...
The introduction of bad egg to stop people using gamesharks. If we want to shark stuff, why not? It's not hurting anyone. We can't enter pokemon convention tournament things either. It's our loss...

i think the loss of team rocket is the biggest problem. i mean seriously, team magma/aqua? team galactic? they're so lame compared to team rocket. team rocket was like the poke-mob, and giovanni was the coolest boss ever


bring back team rocket to pokemon games!

God forbid you could just walk in and meet the freaking Gym Leader!! ><; ....*breathes*....

That's why Jasmine's the cooliest gym leader. All you have to do is walk in and there she is. (Provided you complete the quest that must be completed before you can actually battle)

I hate Ash's new voice!!! It drives me crazy every time I here it! I also hate Ash because he sucks soooo bad and so does his Pikachu! Iron tail Iron tail Iron tail thunderbolt thunderbolt thunderbolt volt tackle volt tackle volt tackle huh how did they know what I was going to do?

I hate how the anime doesn't folow the game at all. Pikachu thunderbolting an Onix, and winning. No. no no no no. Bad.

TR needs to die.

I hate the fact that in Yellow version, your pikachu won't evolve. I mean, if it can't evolve, what's the point of having it? They should have given it better stats than a regular pikachu but instead you get stuck with some sucky pokemon that sucks super bad.
