Did you use a Pokémon from the fifth generation that you expected to be good, but were let down by it? Well tell us who it is!

For me it would have to be Galvantula. Its type match-up got me all fired up to use one, but it was just so... boring!

Darmanitan Zen Mode seemed so cool, but it just flopped! By the time you can use it, you're dead. Otherwise, I LOVE it. Darmanitans without Zen Mode are awesome.

Hmm... Good question.

So far, I've liked all the pokemon I've used.

...probably the most disappointing would have to be... uhh...

I'll be honest and say Volcarona. I mean, yes, it is still powerful once I set up Quiver Dances, but it's just a tad slower than some pokemon and its defenses aren't worth talking about. And 4x weakness to rock does screw it over many times. Not that I think Volcarona is an useless pokemon! It just didn't live up to my expectations of being the strongest pokemon on my team.

I still love it, though!

Banning you rn.

I didn't actually use it but Purrloin/Liepard I was disappointed that so many people were talking about how not good it was. I love cats and not being able to use the cat Pokemon made me sad. ;;

Keep in mind this was before I looked at base stat totals. I've always been a fan of the Zubat-Crobat line so when I saw Woobat-Swoobat, I was pretty excited. AND it sucked. Majorly. I was so disappointed because it could never get anything done. Now I know why it sucked.

^ I agree Bliztle was a extreme let down...and in some ways so were the starters...a lot of BW pokemon are glass cannons... Kyurem was also disappointing with it's small movepool.

I've never used a Pokemon that let me down besides Snivy. It's basically a faster Chikorita.

Liepard, Audino, and Zebstrika. I was looking forward to using them but they're very frail. I ditched Liepard in a practice run, I never used Audino once I saw its capabilities, and I struggled training Zebstrika in White.

I loved Volcarona, Virizion, and Galvantula. -.-

Mines would have to be Woobat Sawk and Throh. Woobat was what I didn't expect and the other two creeps my nerves

All of them, Nintendo got lazy on this one. Then need to just delete Unova and start from scratch.

Anyway, I think the worst and most dissopointing Gen - PURRLOIN. GAME FREAK. ILL FREAKING KILL YOU. COME ANY CLOSER PURRLOIN, AND ILL FREAKIN KILL YOU. IT WONT BE HARD EITHER, BECAUSE YOUR STATS ARE F***ING HORRIBLE. YOUR DEFENSE IS LOW, AND UNLIKE ARCHETOPS, YOUR ATTACK DOSEN'T MAKE UP FOR IT.
But in all seriousness, I thought it was pretty cool to have a Dark type that early in the game. But, they had to make it a throwaway Pokemon...
Yeah, Purrloin/Liepard was terrible. It takes way too long to learn Night Slash.

Archeops may have low defenses but it has awesome Attack.

I used an Archeops in Black, and I was satisfied with him.

Defeatist won't trigger that much in-game compared to competitive.

and create another Unova... seriously unova is supposed to be new begining


anyway... I'd say liepad since it has terrible stats. I like its design but its stats prevented me from using it.

Liepard was mega disappoint compared to other Unova Pokemon. I never ever want to use Liepard.

Klingklang. That whole evo line was unsatisfactory but the last one especially. The only redeeming factor was the creativity of the shiny palette :/

The Zebra pokemon, I didn't even bothered to learn its name when I found out it wasn't as good as I thought it would have been.

I think you mean Zebstrika. It wasn't too bad eventually, mine managed to sweep Elesa's team using a Shock Wave + Attract + Flame Charge combo (mine was female).

For me, it had to be Hydreigon.

Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad Pokemon in any respect. It's just, the type combo and the height of it's evolution levels.. I expected it to be more then what it can do.

Most of them to be quite honest, there's only a few ones like Jellicent (Both genders), Excadrill and Volcanrona etc that I found to be quite creative. Pokemon like klink or whatever the cogs is called are quite disgusting. :/

Just going to remind you guys that this thread is only for disappointments, any more posts that aren't referring to disappointments I'm just going to delete. So in other words, things you thought would be awesome by their sprites but weren't by their moves/etc. If you dislike something in general, then discuss it in the favourites thread (I think I'm just going to edit that title, tbh).

As for me, nothing in particular. :x

agreed with Purrlion which is a shame as it looks pretty cool. Patrat/Watchog was actually better than Purrlion which I was suprised at.
Zebstriker as well. I used it on my first playthrough and it was decent but it eventually fell behind the rest of my team, by the time I reached the Elite 4 it was my last choice in a big battle.
