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

I would have to be Trubbish & Garbodor. I think they look blooming horrible and more like they were thrown together quickly rather than anything.

Liepard's defense was atrocious. I mean, it had a nice speed, cool design, cute cry, decent attack, and then came its defense.
My least favorite are Zorua and Zoarark, though. Design, ability, movepool, everything about them disappoints me.

Most of the other Pokemon I enjoy fully, though. Except for Klink and its evolutions. While I love it to death and want to hug every one I come across, their movepool needs some serious redesigning. That, or their stats. Like maybe they could have a high special attack and a decent physical attack, instead. That or learn better physical moves.

Gigalith, because of its moveset. It could've at least learned Iron Head or whatnot.

Yeah, I hated those things. Their movepool totally sucked cos they are Physical attackers and learn mainly Special moves.

Stunfisk. It lives in water and it's not even a Water type. I find this disappointing to be honest.

Dratini lived in water and wasn't a water type. Stunfisk was a cool little twist. I found it pretty decent for a short while in game.

I was a little disappointed in Deino honestly. For a Psuedo Legendary Pokemon of a Type Combination that has been wanted for a long while now, I found it lacked in poswer compared to Axew's line when I got to use them.

It learns muddy water, so it kinda balances out.

I know Its right there in the stats. but he was so slow that I had to dump him. What is the use of a strong poke'mon if they don't even get the chance to attack. or just waite tons of HP every battle waiting to attack . idk.

that was a pretty big let down because i really wanted him to back up my team.

also. a big let down was "Seismitoad" i know i should have been used to the whole water+ground being extra weak to grass. but it just wasnt that good to have on my team. overall in the game and battling with friends. it was just an obvious flaw that made him hard to use. and i did like the design alot so it was hard to let him go.

anyways two poke'mon that i really liked and used well were: Vaniluxe (Sillycone) and Candelure (Candleheart) both of which supported my team in a big way.

peace out.
Well the first one, you could have trick room lol. I agree though, normally I'm used to fast paced pokemon so when it comes to slower mons, I have trouble fitting them into a team.

IMO the most disappointing pokemon in Gen V was Pidove and Co. I really just didn't get a liking to them like I did with the other "starting" birds especially after Staraptor. I just felt like it didn't do as well as they did.

Purrloin/Liepard. They died way too quickly with such low defenses. Which kinda sucked cause I've always liked the cat Pokémon in past generations.

Mine would have to be Purrloin and Liepard. They pretty sucked -_-
Major drop from Glameow, I would completely get rid of Purrloin and Liepard if I had a choice, they literally were pretty bad in stats and attacks.

I agree with the two of you, I found training a Liepard really difficult.

Well, when I first saw Black and White, I didn't like the look of Zekrom and Reshiram. They didn't really shout "Dragon Legendaries" to me. That changed when I got into the game and, much like most who have posted, Liepard and Garbador would probably be in my most disappointing 5th Gen Pokemon. Marractus is also a large standout. Looks like a Digimon more than a Pokemon.

Druddigon. It's just... there. Under normal circumstances, it would be awesome, but it really isn't. It looks fugly, is ridiculously slow, and just isn't good to use. For a Dragon Pokemon, it really is quite pathetic. It could have been so much better, but it's just kinda crappy and boring.

I personally find its main abilities disappointing. I mean the Pokemon itself is ugly, but the abilities... well, idk, something like Guts would've been better suited to it and made it less disappointing.

Heatmor
Design could have been so much better. Stats are a total letdown.


Cryogonal, Beartic, and Vanilluxe
This could have been the new beast ice types, but not so...


Klinklang
Ok design, horrible movepool. C'mon Nintendo, just give us a good, pure steel type for once.


Druddigon
The design hurts my eyes


Gigalith
Awesome design, awesome attack and defense, horrid movepool and speed.


Zebstrika
I was originally going to use this on my team, but it's stats just don't stack up against the better electric types. I love the design though.

This list is pretty incomplete, but I have stuff to go do
Also keep in mind that this list does not include Pokemon I knew would suck from the start. These are only the disappointing ones. The ones I was looking forward to using before I played the game.

Zebstrika and Klinklang were both pretty disappointing since I had high hopes for them originally. Zebstrika is so fragile I was always running back to the Pokemon center and Klinklang just couldn't compete with the rest of my team so I ditched it pretty soon after getting it.

I knew I was forgetting something when I was thinking about my original post. I loved heatmor, although he was a major let down like you said with the stats. It's shiny sprite is also good too. Alot of the pokemon could have been really good, esp the ice types.

Yea the shiny sprite for him is really cool in comparison, but I just can't get over how derpy the face looks.

What I meant regarding Archeops is that I like it —a lot— and that the many folk whom are disappointed with it probably fail to play it well, as its ability is generally their sole point of contention.

Unless you compare it with the much better dragon types like Hydreigon and Haxorus.

Actually I really liked Trubbish and Garbodor, they have an interesting, humorous appearance and in my opinion have a better design than Grimer/Muk, who they are often compared to.

Just a reminder to anybody that posts here, this thread is only about the most disappointing Pokemon you have used (and how you think you could improve it/whether you agree with others). If you dislike something in general or how it looks use favourites and least favourites. Hopefully after editing the title that'll solve this issue we've been having for a while.

Training op Purrloin was a hell. It was weak offensively and defensively that badly that its good speed did not even make a difference. Deino as well, it missed a lot because of Hustle, but did not have the insane power I expected.
