Ok, so, to me, there are pokemon that I go:

"Hey, look, that pokemon is cool.."

5 minutes later, I totally forget about.

Some examples for me: Mawile, Volbeat, Illumise, Gulpin, Swalot, Carvanha, Grumpig, Spiritomb, Delibird, Huntail

Name yours!


EDIT: Whoops! Can a mod move this to general pokemon discussion please?

...I guess I can. *moves*

Some pokes I tend to ignore for whatever reason after seeing them include, well, type repeats I don't care much for (e.g. Finneon, such a forgettable water type that hardly offers anything new) or just plain old rare boring ones (I only became more aware of a certain 5th gen ice type after B2W2 - that has a neat design but is rare as heck and was barely used by trainers in BW).

I think some really cool ones that are forgotten about are Ledian, Sudowoodo, Jirachi (not many people mention Jirachi), Snover/abomasnow, and leavanny.

Some that I generally forgot about were Cleffa and Igglybuff from gen2. Relicanth, Luvdisc, and Seviper from gen 3. Finneon, lumineon, and Carnivine from gen 4. I really don't have any forgettable ones from generations 1 and 2.

I always forget about Kangaskhan. It's not that it's a bad Pokemon, I just never use it, or care to train on it.

There are A LOT of Pokemon like this. For me... they tend to mostly be fish. There is a bunch of fish Pokemon that are far too similar to be distinct of their own rights. Quilfish(or whatever it is....), Remoraid, Lumineon, Those two east and west sea/pink and green and guys.... Relicanth, Tentacool/cruel, Seel/Dewgong, Shelder/Cloyster... the list goes on and on! But if they're a fish... you can assume them to be on this list, aha.

Other, non-fish pokemon are: N/Xatu, Dunsparce, Misdreavus(not really forgotten... just forgotten that it appeared in Gen 2...), Breloom, and a few others that I seem to have forgotten... Oops!

Cryogonal?

Anyway, I seem to forget about Vullaby and Mandibuzz. No in-game trainers in Black/White uses them, except for those in the Battle Subway.

I must agree with sunshinesan because fish pokemon aren't any cool. Feebas and Magikarp envolve into two of my fav pokemons, but still... once I tried to like Goldeen, and it's kinda pretty, but it's evolution is ugly.
Some other are those deep sea pokemon, I don't like their design. They could be way much better :c

And I once tried to like a Castform I received from some scientist. But I failed.

Other than that, there's many pokemons I don't like, but I never really liked them since the first time I saw them, so this isn't the case here.

I just took a quick look through the National Dex, and a few Pokemon that jumped out at me that I forgot about were Swalot, Happiny, Shelmet/Accelgor, and many of the different fish Pokemon, as previously pointed out. The biggest one that got me though was Sunflora. I can't recall one single time I've faced it in a battle since Gold, and since you can't find them anywhere in the wild and their stats aren't all that good, I guess I just completely forgot about it (despite seeing Sunkern many a time).

I don't know which Pokemon I have currently forgotten because lmao if I'm forgotten it then of course I can't recall it right now haha. Buuut a Pokemon that I used to forget about all the time was Mothim. I'm not sure why but for the longest time when I saw it my response was 'OH YOU EXIST......'

I completely forgot Wormadam. Just seemed like a useless pokemon back when I had my 4th gen games. A lot of fish and bug pokemon I guess.
Another one is Surskit and it's evolution form... Masquerain? (I actually even had to look up the name, wow). Just those small pkm that don't have much value in fighting, and have similar designs/themes to previous pokemon.

Yanma and Sandshrew/slash. I mean the three have been around for awhile and just don't play much of a role anywhere.

Haha yanma does seem to be hard to remember. They probably added Yanmega so that people would want it more.

Until they announced it was going to be in the B2/W2 Unova Dex, I also forgot about Castform for a few years.

Everyone in Generation 2. A sweeping generalization in that I actually do remember a handful like Sentret, Chikorita, Wobbuffet and Miltank, but beyond that, said generalization wouldn't be too much of a stretch.

Some of the Pokemon in Generation 3 fit the topic better, though. Such as Illumise, Roselia, Nosepass, Ninjask, Gulpin, Sableye and a whole host of others I'm sure I'm forgetting, but loved back in the day.

As for Generation 1, I can remember them all if I force myself to, but as I get older, that information gets pushed out.

I have no familiarity with Pokemon past Generation 3.

I forget most of the Pokemon that don't evolve (besides legendaries). It's not that I don't like them, they just don't seem to stick. I guess it's the fact that they only have one form, so there's no evolutions I can associate with them. I also tend to forget Burmy, Wormadam, and, Mothim.

I remember starting a thread like this AGES ago, and for me, it's pretty much Dunsparce, Lickylicky (even though I love it) and a few others.
Until HG/SS, Shuckle seemed to be a common one to forget.
