I hate infatuation and poison especially infatuation since I always catch male Pokemon...

But, poison always annoys me when I'm walking I was like in a battle with KOGA on FireRed when My Charizard got poisoned by Toxic! Oh man it was really annoying!

Paralysis shows up far more often than it should.

Confusion isn't actually that bad for me. Paralysis seems to be an issue though, but more because of the speed thing.

I've had a strong dislike for infatuation ever since the "CIPHER Admin Venus" battle in Pokemon Colosseum, so I'd probably go with that as my most hated ailment. Confusion is probably a close second, since I've had slightly better luck with that one.

Sleep, hands down.

Just because with the other statuses you have that reassurance that it's permenant until you do something. If you're burned, poisoned, etc., it's gonna stay that way until you use an item/ cleric.

But with Sleep, it dangles the possibility of waking up right in your face, just to dash it away to be sitting there useless for another turn.

Tie between infatuation and poison. Infatuation... it's hard to score a hit cause your Pokemon just fell in love with the opponent. Had to see your Pokemon with hearts plastered all over it whilst taking hard hits, until it dies.

Poison, it's not much of a big deal, but when it's badly poisoned, that's the idea. You take maximizing damage over time, even after a battle. It's a huge bother.

Seeing this competitive: Confusion. I think Paralysis is next to that. And infatuation on some level. Or rather, let's just do it like this:

Confusion and Infatuation are on the same level of annoyance here. With Infatuation, your pokemon, chances are, isn't going to move and you're going to be really lucky if they strike a hit, whilst your opponent is just going to sit there, setting up on you in like 50 different ways and its gg from there. @_@; it's the same thing with confusion, except there's a huge risk that you might kill yourself, thus giving your opponent a free turn. Meh.

Though speaking of these things as far as in-game goes, I still find infatuation to be a pain to put up with, but Paralysis becomes increasingly annoying and and a pain to tolerate.

I seem to have the worst luck with confusion and that seems to be the only part of any of the games that KOs my Pokemon.

I hit my enemy with confusion, they always seem to get out of it too quickly and the never hit themselves rendering my turn as worthless.

When I get hit by it, my Pokemon ALWAYS hit themselves and sometimes even changes the outcome completely within the fight.

So it feels worthless when I use it, but almost god-like and cheap when the AI uses it. Therefore, it's my least favorite. Don't even get me started with my Swagger rage, I keep thinking it's going to be helpful in my team but...... UUUUUUGH!!!!!!!!!! And somehow the AI just manages to place me in bad situations with it, it's unfair!

Definitely confusion through all of my Pokemon Games. My opponent needs just one small hit to die and here I am with my Pokemon slowly killing itself >. Usually my Pokemon hit themselves 200 times or something during one battle .
pineapples are cool.

Confusion and infatuation are both merely annoying, because it's easy to get rid of. You change your Pokémon, confusion or infatuation gone!

Poison, paralysis and sleep are my most hated status ailments. Poison lingers after battle, and if you haven't got an Antidote with you, you'll either be using Potions to keep your Pokémon alive, or it just faints. Paralysis is just like confusion an infatuation, but more powerful. It lingers after battle, and it cuts your Pokémon's speed. I think sleep is my single most hated ailment. I'm fighting a strong Pokémon, and my Pokémon falls asleep. And you'd think it would be shook awake after taking a hit, but no... even a Hyper Beam won't wake you up! Before your Pokémon wakes up in battle, it might already have fainted.

So, sleep is definetly my most hated status ailment.
Pain is only temporary, giving up lasts forever.

Confusion. I always get a little annoyed whenever I see "It hurt itself in its confusion!" I seem to get the worst luck with it, too.

The others suck too, but there's nothing worse than being incapable of doing anything for me because your Pokémon is too attracted to the other to move.

All of them annoy me, but I think Confusion annoys me the most, 'cause it always seems to happen to me when I'm so close to winning! Also, Flinching is annoying as well, although I love it when it happens to someone I'm battling haha.

I hate Confusion, Sleep, and Infatuation the most. Confusion is just plain annoying and I feel like throwing the DS down when someone uses Supersonic or it says: "It hurt itself in its confusion!"

Sleep is just annoying when I get afflicted, but even more annoying when I put another Poké to sleep. My Pokémon sleeps for like 5 turns, but the foe sleeps for even less when I afflict it.

Infatuation is really annoying, particularly when Audino training. I'm unable to attack most of the time, and the Pokémon that used Attract takes advantage by torturing my Pokémon. But one thing I'm really glad about is that there are male Audinos, because my Black team is mostly male.

Poison, mainly because it affects them outside battle too and gives this horrible sense or urgency to get to a Center before they faint.
Plus I hate the overworld effect and sound.

Confusion, Infatuation, and Flinching because the A.I. always cheats with it. Let me use those attacks and they shrug them off.

Real gamers play for fun.

Well sweeties, I definitely hate Paralyze and Confusion.

For Paralyze, not only it cuts your speed, but there's a 25% chance of not attacking, which makes it annoying.

For Confusion, it seems that it will always hit itself and will never snap out of confusion. It's so aggravating.

I hate burns. It always cripples me. I hate confusion too, because it's more annoying than anything. For some reason, poison never really does much to me though. Oh, and infatuation... Oh my god I hate that move.

Whenever someone uses attract I'll just switch out, because if I don't there's like no hope in trying to attack haha.
