Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, hens return two years later in Black2 & White2.

I have been a fan of Pokemon almost my whole life. Ever since generation 1, hordes of Pokemon have had their turn in passing in front of me, having themselves assessed in terms of usability and design. Some passed through without a hitch, like Crobat, Metagross, Miltank, and Snorlax. Others passed barely. Unown and Lumineon to name a few. Nonetheless, they all passed. However, come the advent of generation V, I am sad to say I stopped one species in passing. It did not lived up to my standards and therefore it would never secure a spot in any of my team. Sure, its pre-evolution was good. It's design was simple and yet it's quite charming. Its older brother was just pure ugly.

Garbodor is a Pokemon I can never learn to accept. T.T

Garbodor is extremely ugly, and I don't really understand Druddigon. I mean, what's his point? He's just a random lackluster Dragon. I like his design, too, so it bothers me that he is so nondescript.

I hate/like(when I'm using one) the axew line, not because in design but when I'm battling one, they're a pain, same with Druddigon. Oh, and eelektross is annoying with levitate and made me want to chuck my DS across a wall. Basically, I hate tanks unless I'm using one.


The white treehollow was annoying because almost all the pokemon were carrying berries so my SE attacks couldn't do too much. And the veterans in Drayden's gym were annoying. I wish you could just push them off!

Druddigon is probably the most annoying Pokemon ever. It makes me want to scream my head off whenever I see it! It is so ugly! And Eelektross is pretty annoying too, as you said, but one cannot REALLY add it onto the list by its design, but more on its unwillingness to DIE ALREADY!!! xD

If you want Eelektross to die already, you should carry a Pokemon with Mold Breaker and Dig/Earthquake/Bulldoze in your team. I particularly recommend Haxorus or Pinsir.

For me, I really am not a fan of Patrat/Watchog. I love Lillipup and Herdier, but I don't think that Stoutland was necessary, so I'm not a big fan of it.
I don't like the elemental monkeys, but I'm not a fan of monkeys in general.
I wasn't too thrilled with Pidove and it's evolutions.
Not a big fan of Darumaka/Darmanitan either.
I could have done without Garbodor, but it's not the worst Pokemon ever created.

Other than that I really loved most of the Gen V Pokemon.

Says the one with a 5th gen trainer as their avvie.

I don't like the genies, unless their in their therian(?) formes. They're the same but with different tails and colors. Oh and the other one you're thinking of is kyurem.

The Fifth Generation Pokemon weren't so bad, but Game Freak didn't pour their love into it, like they did with Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander. I am heartily disappointed, but X/Y does look promising, which will hopefully bring back the magic!

Considering every generation has had it's share of "useless" or "ugly" Pokemon, I'd say the only truly badly designed Pokemon in the Unova were Tepig, Pignite, Emboar and maybe Druddigon, just because they could have been awesome, but don't look quite so.

Yeah, and the new type combinations look awesome. Sure psychic/dark is x4 weak to bug, but most bug moves aren't that great. MAKE ELECTRIC/PSYCHIC, AND GHOST/PSYCHIC. And the pokemon(so far) don't make me want to vomit. Except maybe mewtwo's new form. 5th gen had a lot of cool, unique combinations too.

That would be the awesome.

The basculin thing is really true, especially since they're fast and can hit pretty hard.

Vanillite and its evolutions grind my gear. Not only do they look weird, but they also have that stupid smile that makes anybody want to just do it in.

Trubbish and Garbordor... they're just what they are, pile of trash.

Oh my god thank you.

Like, oh my flipping dog, Basculin's sheer existence is... pointless. All it has going for it in design is... alternating color schemes? And as for attacking? Well, I can see it being Rough Skin Fodder, after a quick Aqua Jet, but that's still worthless!

Basculin is unusually powerful, for some reason. Some reason 'Take Down' is far more powerful then usual, like if you use 'Leer' Basculin will soon be slapping your face with it's tail, for crying out loud! xD Well, my analogies lack awesomeness, so don't mind me. :X

Not a lot of pokemon are ugly to me, but there are a few in gen 5 that didn't exactly win me over.

Garbodor/Trubbish - It's been stated a million times before, they tried...
Druddigon - Yeah, the design just didn't click with me.
Vullaby/Mandibuzz - I felt like they could have looked so much better.
Watchog - Those eyes, those creepy eyes...

Garbodor was a unique concept, that's for sure. I would also venture to say that some more thought could've gone into the Vanillite line designs. Other than that, I thought Unova contained some rather nice concepts and most of the pokemon were aesthetically pleasing to me.

I was having a random battle on the battle server today when I had Klank on my team. I thought it was the final evolution, but nope, it was the middle stage. What was the point of this family line? It gains more gears upon evolution... It could have stopped at one evolution. Its final evo is still very weak. I dunno, I just expect a little more versatility or utility when the Pokemon has two evolutions.

Same with the ice cream family, I can hardly spell their names and know their differences. They gain ice creams cones! What.... Kinda cool Pokemon, unimaginative family line with weak stats overall. Vanillish was a pain to raise. I wanted to like him, but I couldn't despite raising him to level 50. :c

Oh, Druddigon was the Pokemon of the day, but he is okay. Although he's an eyesore, he's never disappointed me as much as the Klink/Vanillish families.

I hate Stoutland. Lillipup and Herdier are absolute cuties and I was expecting a lot from its final evolution when nope, this huge odd-defying dog appears with a grumpy face. I just hated it and was completely unimpressed. It was way too big for my liking and no dog should be that size. Ever. Swoobat just makes me sigh in exasperation, the concept was okay but the design wasn't the best thing I've ever seen. Garbodor is just... well garbage. Apart from being a bag of trash its just uncreative, it wins the prize of worst Pokemon of that generation. Arguably though, I felt that Seismitoad and the monkeys also looked terrible. They weren't very fun Pokemon to use either to be honest.

Muk, Garbodor, whats the difference, they're both piles of human waste. I always hated Beartic just for being a wannabe Ursaring.

Haha, Stoutland was kinda disappointing, but then again... super powerful, good defense, attack, EVERYTHING! xD Lilipup is just like an average puppy, but then again... I LOVE PUPPIES!! :D
