Gunna sound wierd but I was playing through on a spare copy of white and finally managed to catch a Drilbur. Everyone has been hyping it up and its even on the Uber list, but when I got it to an Excadrill I was highly disappointed. Its Move pool is ok for its type, still need it to branch out better move wise, but It keeps dying way too fast for me. Brycen OHKO'd it with his Cryognal, when I used it against the E4 it didn't stay up for more than two hits which was odd. I have a neutral nature for it so nature wasn't really an issue. Just don't see why its so hyped up.
erm are u serious? a sword dance or 2 and it can rape everything ingame. just give it more coverage in its movepool.
of course dont switch it onto something like a sturdy sawk than can esaily revenge kill u with effective fighting moves

I will have to agree with everyone and say Purrloin/Liepard. I thought it was be a good Pokemon, but it ended up being hard to train. It would take damage too easily and fainted too much for me to deal with.
Also, Solosis. I caught one because I heard Reuniclus was a really good Pokemon. The only problem was it levels up slowly. So I wasn't really motivated to train it and evolve it. I'll admit it has really good Special Attack, but the rest of its stats are awful and I just didn't feel like using it. So it's been boxed since it got to level 24.

I remember trading a Solosis from my brother's White to raise into a Reuniclus.

She struggled so much I needed to switch her often, not to mention that Solosis evolves like at least 13 levels after it is caught and it doesn't get any decent STAB moves until it learns Psychic, which is at Level 39 as Duosion, only two levels away from Reuniclus.

Gothita's line evolves at the same levels (32 and 41) but unlike Solosis, Gothita has a decent STAB move right off the bat. So yeah, Gothita is easier to train than her counterpart Solosis not to mention she has slightly better Speed.

I eventually got my Reuniclus in the end cos I never gave up.

Quote originally posted by Hikari10:
Pokemon I found disappointing:



Blitzle & Zebstrika
A Zebra Pokemon was something I always wanted but unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. Blitzle's defenses are so low it falls easily so guys, if you are training one please give it an Exp. Share. After evolving, Zebstrika's defenses are finally patched up but a lack of good moves was bad. Mine was able to beat Elesa's whole team though cos I did an Attract + Shock Wave + Flame Charge strategy. At least the design is awesome.



Purrloin & Liepard
Its defenses are so frail and all its stats suck apart from Speed. Also, it starts out really weak offense-wise and takes way too long to learn Night Slash. Definitely the worst of the cat Pokemon IMO.



Trubbish & Garbodor
These Poison-types really stink, don't use them. They are physical-based but the problem is the only physical STAB move they learn is Gunk Shot which is so inaccurate. And the Garbodor with Weak Armor are even worse. Hate Garbodor...



Foongus & Amoonguss
These Pokemon are so crap, they are really sluggish and their attacks don't do much. I didn't really enjoy them a lot cos of that.



Stunfisk
One word, derp. Very slow and its like a terrible novelty Pokemon.



Heatmor
Definitely the worst of the Unova Fire-types.



Klink, Klang & Klinklang
I love these gears, they were OK. The problem is they are physical attackers and they don't have the right movepool to pull it off.



Pidove, Tranquill & Unfezant
I love the design, but the movepool is terrible. Physical based but the only physical Flying-type attacks they can learn are Fly, Pluck and Aerial Ace. I still enjoyed using Air Cutter/Air Slash on a Super Luck Unfezant equipped with Scope Lens. If you want to use this pigeon, get Super Luck for the ability cos Big Pecks is terrible.



Cryogonal
I love the design but its defense is so terrible despite being a special wall. It's like an Ice-type Blissey in some way. At least it gets an interesting movepool though.



Druddigon
One word, terrible Speed. Good movepool and abilities make up for it though.



Shelmet & Accelgor
They are very interesting but their strategies are so different. Shelmet uses defensive tactics but when it evolves, it has to adapt to being offensive. Accelgor's defenses and movepool sucked despite the cool design.



Karrablast & Escavalier
Cool designs but Escavalier's real dilemma is Speed. So sluggish everything will attack before it unless if it's Munchlax or Shuckle. Like Accelgor, Escavalier's movepool also didn't live up to expectations.



Alomomola
I like it's amazing support movepool but on the offensive spectrum, it's physical-based but lacks good physical Water-type attacks. Just focus on its support moves and you should be fine.



Woobat & Swoobat
The design looks cute and quirky but their stats all stink apart from Speed. At least they can learn Acrobatics, which is nice.



Darmanitan (Zen Mode)
I hate it cos when Zen Mode triggers, you are so close to getting knocked out which is bad considering Zen Mode slows Darmanitan down and turns it into a Special attacker. Sheer Force is the much better ability.

Well i liked Zebstrika and Escavaleir..
The other pokemons i agree with you..
I can't even explain what is that garbage pokemon..
Who wants to use a garbagge bag?

One more thing..I CAN'T BELIEVE I WAS ABSENT FROM THE FORUM SINCE 2009(!)..

Welcome back, DarkAbsolX! Nice to meet you

And I don't know why they made a garbage bag Pokemon. Are they running out of ideas...?

Anyways, Zebstrika sort of disappointed me. Its design was so awesome-looking, but mine couldn't take any hits...

As many of you have already indicated, Liepard is soooooo disappointing. I usually don't even care if the stats or movepools are just sub-par, but Liepard was just flat-out useless. I hope that Liepard is given an evolution in a future generation because I love it's design but it is just so weak.

Well, I guess it's not as disappointing as Delcatty, which doesn't even break into the 400 base-stat range.

Like some guy said earlier, Drilbur just wasn't doing it for me. I got it thinking I'd turn it into a Phys Attack monster, but honestly it's damage output even evolved and at high levels was rather meh all things considered (My Samurott was just as strong and had better defense). It really bummed me out because I kept waiting for it to turn into this awesome beast and it just never did.

My Drilbur was actually useful considering how my whole team was overleveled

Liepard was awesome until you got to the desert. Thats when he got overshawdowed by better dark types like Scrafty and Krookadile

The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians use the phrase "Dude, man..." frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they've been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don't think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this.

I think Tepig is pretty dissappointing.
I JUST started Black yesterday(my b-day gift :D)) and I have to say, another fire/fighting starter is disappointing.

I'm going with Eelecktross, looking at it, it was one of the coolest designs of the 5th gen and had levitate, no weaknesses! But when I caught Tynamo (after searching for forever) it was a complete letdown for what it was. First off at Tynamo, you are stuck with only 4 moves, cant change 'em. Eventually, I did get it to its final stage, but it wasn't THAT powerful and eventually I dumped it for a Braviary

Liepard Still better than a garbage bag...
An attacker garbage bag that only learns Gunk shot as it's best physical attack..

Gunk shot that for itself is soooooo inaccurate..

I think Blaziken and Infernape where awesome for Fire/Fighting types but Emboar is like a "wanabe" of those two..

And those gear pokemon..geez..what's happening to the creativity of the designers?

Hm... I never had any issues with my Zebstrika. In fact, I was quite satisfied. I always used a Pikachu/Raichu in the past games. Except for in HG - I had to use Ampharos for the walkthrough and that Pokemon was a slight disappointment (although the pre-evolutions are adorable).

The one that I thought I would use but ended up not using was the fire monkey... Pansear? I got to around Lvl. 20, but it just wasn't powerful enough. It kept on getting defeated and I got sick of training it.

I agree with you in the apes thing..

I have one Pansear but i didn't go with his stats..I gave up on him when i found Larvesta and after Volcarona (one of the best fire pokemons in my opinion).

I like Zebstrika though..

But i don't agree with you when you said Ampharos was disappointing..

Come on ..Ampharos is so cool and powerfull too !!

Like the others have said, Liepard. It's movepool sucks and it's defense is a little too low for my liking. At least it's design was cute, otherwise I don't think I'd own one on my Black file.

For me, it was Swoobat. I had some fun punching stuff with Woobat's nose (That is how I imagine Heart Stamp works), but for the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th gym, it served no purpose other than fodder, and even then it is pretty frail so it never was that good at it. Even in the Elite Four, its impact against Marshall was 3rd rate, and it is Psychic/Flying.

Golurk. I expected this Pokemon to be amazing but it turned out to be a huge disappointment :( I was soo excited to use one because it's a combination of two of my favourite types and its stats + moves + typing are all very good, as well as an ability that increases the power of punching moves, but it was a massive disappointment and could barely hurt a fly. Whether or not this was down to IVs or nature I don't know because in all honesty I didn't think to check on account of it being an in-game Pokemon, but yeah, huge disappointment!

I hate liepard! The design looks nice but it has bad stats
Trubbish/Garbodor its dissappointing too.
Foongus is better than liepard and trubbish

Oh why? Is it because of its ability or the fact that other fire Pokemon just outclass it?

There're a lot of dissappointing pokemon in unova. They should fix it. I wish Pokemon Black 2 and White2 will be better!
Well the point of this thread is to mention what in particular you're disappointed in! So which ones in specific that you've used - maybe a few of us may end up agreeing?

Zebstrika. from the design, I thought that it is going to be another decent electabuzz. I was mistaken. I dumped it as soon as I can replace it with Galvantula. That spider is more wicked.

Serperior wasn't that great to use. Its attack stats aren't very good, though its defenses are. I suppose it's only underwhelming because I'm so used to going to my starter when I need to finish something quickly.

Also, while Hydreigon is great, it's not worth the absurdly high evolution level.

Liepard was the most dissapointing pokemon I've ever used.. I guess it's because I've put some real high expectations on it, I mean real high!
a Dark pokemon with a fantastic design that is obtainable from the start of the game, that's just wow! but as you evolve it and try to engage it in battles, you immediately feel how very weak it is.. I couldn't keep it for long although I loved it

Leavanny and Zebstrika as well, to some extent the move sets they've been given aren't really great, especially Zebstrika which has a great design and it deserves better, but at least it does it's job pretty fine and can sweep teams on it's own

Darmanitan (Zen Mode) and Audino. Darmanitan look really cool but then really sucked at attacking for me. Audino... well... it's self explanatory. lol
