You know Pokemon is trolling you when...
Out of curiosity, can you please tell me about those "You know Pokemon is trolling you when..." moments? Like what game, and how? Recent or the most frustrating are best, but any one of those moments is fine, too.

My personal moment (or at least the most recent) was with a trainer in Black 2/ White 2. Every time I used counter, I got attacked with leer. When I didn't, they used Bite. And when I decided to use counter, they decided to 1-hit KO my Riolu with Tackle. What. The. Heck.

I think of battle facilities when I think of trolling in Pokemon games. Like, when I'm about to win, critical/status/miss hax on my behalf may cause me to lose the entire streak I'm in.

Not sure if this counts, but at the Battle Arcade I just happened to hit the "Switch Pokemon" panel with an opponent who I had completely covered type-wise (plus they sucked, plus it was one battle before Dahlia). Needless to say I lost that battle and like a 20-win streak. Thanks Pokemon. Thanks.

Not a big deal but still a troll moment. I once lost to Gary/Blue at the very start because he critical hit me twice. I decided just to start over. It was a minor battle but the fact I lost some starter money over something that stupid was bugging me to the point where I didn't want to move on with that file.

WHITNEY'S MILTANK IN GSC! I would think everyone would agree her Miltank is the ULTIMATE Troll. She keeps trollin with that rollout.

Bluerang1 October 25th, 2012 12:55 PM

Hustle. And I wondered why Crunch kept missing -_- All that EV training probably gone to waste now, I can't keep having moves miss.

For me, it's always then the opponent "conveniently" gets a critical hit. And end up wiping out the wall on my team in one shot.

It's even worse when it's super effective.

When you're trying to catch a legendary Pokémon, use the whole storage of balls, run out of balls so you restart and catch the Pokémon by using 1 ball!
Seriously WTF?!

Cheren got crit hax in the first gym battle and every time, it seemed like he knew. No Work Ups, just straight up spammed Tackle and got a crit every time. Reset, tried again, same thing happened. Exact same thing. WHAT THE **** GAME.

Synerjee October 26th, 2012 12:13 AM

I know this is more of a strategy, but I dislike it when fighting-type opponents use Endure, leaving it with 1 HP left, and after my pokemon finishes attacking, uses Reversal. BOOM. Almost certain instant KO. I tell you..the AI in B&W2 has become too smart. Forces me to save every time I near a black belt trainer in fear of losing. ><

Hikamaru October 26th, 2012 12:40 AM

Probably Elesa's Volt Switch strategy in Black & White. Thankfully I had a Sandile on my team so I didn't happen to me, but in some cases it feels like she's trolling you.

A long time ago,in a cartridge colored blue...

When the Pokemon you used Hypnosis on wakes up at the start of the next turn every time.

TheLeetCasualGamer October 26th, 2012 6:19 PM

You know Pokemon is trolling you when you're at the battle frontier, your Slobro has 3 amnesias up and a Dragonite has Thunderbolt, stuns you on the first hit, it takes 12 hits from it and one slack off to recover 6 turns worth of it, but yet the paralysis managed to get a 12 turn streak on you. Unluckiest day of my life in Pokemon.

Mudinjakarp October 26th, 2012 6:46 PM

In General? When they didn't allow Phione in the Wi-Fi battles :P

Mithel_Celestia October 26th, 2012 6:49 PM

i used Sleep Talk with a Rest-Sleep Talk combo Pokemon and it kept calling out Rest for 5. Damn. Turns. I was so pissed, but meh... it wasn't in a Battle Facility but it was still annoying to have that.

Gerokunz October 26th, 2012 7:23 PM

I still remember that Whitney's Miltank!
I almost defeat it but it use Milk Drink!
This is why I HATE Miltank!

MrTripStack October 26th, 2012 7:38 PM

I was working through the tenth floor of the White Treehollow and I only had my Charizard left when I saw a nurse, with 30-something HP left and poisoned. She used some black magic to use Protect twice, and the poisoned killed me. .__.

DLMuerte October 27th, 2012 3:01 PM

When you notice that everyone in Black 2 is a higher level than you are.

All of your replies are pretty good and funny, and some I had never even thought about until now! :D Keep it up!

MontrayDavis October 27th, 2012 6:56 PM

.....When your Pokemon is too high of a lvl to listen ! xD

Frostweaver October 27th, 2012 7:03 PM

When a Shedinja is supposed to steal the spirit of whoever even looks inside its hollow body from the back, and then it dies to weather damage immediately.

MontrayDavis October 27th, 2012 7:08 PM

When you try using ground moves on a flying pokemon >:D

SuperKirbyFan October 27th, 2012 9:46 PM

I have a few:

One time I missed with Overheat 3 times in a row.

Once in Gen 4 I was battling a friend. She critical'd me 4 times in a row, so I used the Quick Claw 4 times in a row with my Steelix to destroy her team.

Once in Gen 4 I was battling a different friend. At the end we each had one guy left. I had a Blissey, he had some physical sweeper that could take out my Blissey with one hit and was faster than Blissey, but his guy was Toxic'd. The only way I could win was by successfully using Protect 4 times in a row. It totally worked, he wasn't very happy about it lol.

SaniOKh October 28th, 2012 1:01 AM

Two things I remember from Gen 2:
  • The only shiny I've ever met was a Graveler. The first attack it used in battle was Explosion.
  • I was on route 37. The Raikou I was trying to catch was on route 36. I moved to route 36, Raikou moved to route 37. I went back to route 37, Raikou moved back to route 36...

To quote a recently sent e-mail:

You know when Pokemon is trolling you when the CPU uses Outrage (two
turns), gets confused, and manages to use Outrage again. (KO'd all my
BTW, this guy is NOT on PokeCommunity as of yet. (I think)
