Pretty self explanitory. Which Pokemon did you absolutely hate facing, or just dislike in general?

Here goes:

Gen 1: Koffing line.

I don't like the design at all. There's nothing to it, just a pile of smog as a symbol of pollution in today's world. Poison types tend to be my least favorite because a lot of them, starting with Koffing, look unappealing to me. Toxic is secretly one of the best moves in the Pokemon game, and Weezing is sure to carry it. Plus, it uses Selfdestruct/Explosion on my Pokemon when I least expect it.

Gen 2: Yanma

"Yanma used Protect! Yanma's Speed Boost raised its Speed!" Back in the day when Yanma didn't have its signature Speed Boost ability, Yanma was still a pest. Two words: Double Team! The sheer Speed of Yanma allowed it to spam Double Team and get some cheap misses out of it. Also, I don't happen to like flies, and whatever Yanma is based off of (Dragonfly?), I wouldn't want to encounter one in real life. Those big bulging eyes, those fluttering wings, no thank you!

i will post what I dont like because of its design, and what I dont like to use and what I dont like to face.

Gen 1
Design: psyduck / golduck never liked this design at all, in the original games i would never catch one because I always thought it was a useless pokemon and looked really dumb.

Usability: Porygon You have to build up a lot to get him and he ends up being pretty useless. Ugh so much time spent at that casino.

Fight against: Gengar, my friend just abuses this guy and because of how fast he is and his resistances, I have to use 1 member of my team just as a counter to him.

Gen 2
Design: Totodile and its evolutions, it just looks really ugly to me, I never chose him as a starter, always went with Cyndaquill.

Usability: Deliberd I hate this guy, honestly one of the worst pokemon ever created.

Fight against: tyranitar, just really think this guy is overused and everytime when I face one it takes forever to knock out.

I don't like Tangela and Snubbul, just for the design. Tangela always looked like a ball of blue spaghetti to me, and i don't like the real life inspiration of Snubbul.

From generation one, I guess it's gotta be Chansey. It does look cute and it's quite fun to use when battling, but going up against one could be a major pain. :P For two, I'd say it's Blissey.

My choices are Farfetch´d for Gen1 and Qwilfish for Gen2. Mr Mime just creeped me out as a kid for some reason, and i always found the Abra line to be a lot stronger and more useful. Also, as a kid, pokemon were "monsters" to me, and Mr Mime didnt fit that idea. Qwilfish for Gen2 because he is so unimportant. By unimportant i mean that if you were to list all the Gen2 Pokes, you would always forget Qwilfish, he just never stood out

Grimer, Muk, Koffing, and Weezing.

I just don't like them, especially Koffing and Weezing who just seem to have that troll face on them.

Generations aside, Tentacool always has been and always will be my least favorite Pokemon. Basically the Zubat of the sea, yet they always seemed to show up more often. Nothing was worse than getting poisoned out on the water, and realizing that you had nothing to heal your Pokemon with.

As for the second gen, I'll go with Sunkern. I don't hate it or anything, but they're almost impossible to use in GSC without wasting your TMs on it, which just isn't worth it for a Pokemon so weak.

Actually, I don't like Gyarados all that much. I don't really know why. It's a bit overrated, but then again, so is Charizard, and Charmander is still one of my favourite Pokémon.

Also, I've recently developed a dislike for Hitmontop, who at one time would've been my favourite of the three Tyrogue evolutions.

Jynx has always been my least favorite Pokemon. They just don't make biological sense. I mean, where do they get their dresses? She also caused quite a lot of political trouble for Nintendo in the late nineties, disturbingly resembling "blackface" caricature. We've got Pokemon based on an electric mouse, a fire-breathing dragon, a bipedal rhino, a rock snake and... a diva. Brilliant.

Gen 1: Slowpoke. I just. I can't stand the design. In red and blue it looks like it got ran over by a truck or something. Just gross.

Gen 2: Meganium. It's just one of my least favorite pokemon in the whole franchise. I love bayleef and chikorita, but will never let them evolve into meganium.

Red Blue and Yellow: Metapod&Kakuna, I guess I get that they're there cause your journey is just starting but the fact that all they know is harden is dumb.

Gold Silver and Crystal: Qwuilfish Girafarig or Stantler, they're both just so obscure I've never even used one they just collect dust in my PC

Drowzee. I hate EVERYTHING on that pokemon: It's form, it's cry, it's tendency to hypnotize my pokemon whenever I meet one in the wild (or a trainer battle)...

Gen 1 - Drowzee... it's outclassed by anything, looks historically ugly and yeah...
Gen 2 - That's gotta be Politoed. Hated it in Gen 5 because of Drizzle, still hate it. My 2nd least favorite Pokemon is Blissey. Seriously what is that thing and what's the deal with that retarded HP and Special Defense?

Gen 1 - my least favorite Pokemon (and my current 719th favorite) is Pikachu, not just because of the anime, but all the special treatment it gets - I completely hate it. Everytime I encounter one in the wild or a trainer uses one I can't wait to just take it down immediately.
the thing I find kind of funny is that Raichu is within my top 100 favorites but its two pre-evo's are withing the opposite end

Gen 2 - Pichu, looking very similar to Pikachu, never liked it either (it's my current 718th favorite)

Gen 1: I hate Moltres design, tbh. i mean i think they could have done better with his design.

Gen 2: Igglybuff and Cleffa. they are both unappealing and i never saw the point in them.

Gen 1: Mr. Mime - He creeped me out a lot when I was little and still does a little bit ! I hated fighting Starmie when it spammed Minimize too.

Gen 2: Octillery - It's just ugly and pretty useless. When I finally realised Remoraid evolved into Octillery I was disappointed. Remoraid isn't great either, but at least its not as unsightly.

Gen 1: Farfetch'd to me was just trash. I never was a big fan of it in the first place and its design are mediocre.

Gen 2: I didn't like Marill or Azurmarill much, but it wasn't all that hard to fight against. Maybe I just didn't like using them.

Wow so much hate for Koffing ;~;

Anyway, Rattata is probably my least favorite Pokemon of all time actually, at least until gen 6 but that's a discussion for another time, haha.

In gen 2 it's probably Shuckle. It's just so damn useless and bland.

Gen 1: OMG Mr. Mime... Don't even get me started... In my opinion one of the worst ideas ever in the Pokemon World... It's gender-unsure (come on, females are still called "Mr" at least make them 100% male...) and just creepy in a way (yes I dislike clowns in general too).
Second, I always thought Jynx was kinda weird and creepy too, looks like your gross and chubby aunt you never like to kiss. But at least it's 100% female...

Gen 2
: The first Pokemon that I dislike in this Gen has to be Azumarill. Period. Just looks like a painted Easter Egg with huge ears (and it took AAAGES to catch a Marill in Mt. Mortar; NOT worth it!). Facing one in battle makes me want to KO it immediately.
Second, eventhough I trained one in my first adventure in the G/S/C games, I never found Jumpluff to be that useful and appealing.
Third, Smeargle. Just... omg .__. He is a pain to catch and then his only move, Sketch, is quite a creative move but I only find this useful when you manage to have the luck to get the timing right to copy a great move.
Fourth, sorry to say but I never liked Dunsparce all that much too. Just not appealing and useful (no evolution) in battles AT ALL. Sure, he is kinda cute in Mystery Dungeon for the 3DS, but... Gen.2? Never Ever gonna and will train one...

Gen 1: Ekans and Arbok. Honestly the most useless Pokemon ever when you use it, their typings, stats and movepools all suck major balls, and when you fight against one it wraps you for hours and is just an all-round piece of crap.

Gen 2: Ledian. Did anyone ever use this for any reason? It was just another Bug/Flying, but one so weak and useless it made Butterfree look like a freakin' Mewtwo. Plus Ledyba has the most irritating looking face ever.

Zubat is the most annoying pokemon in history. No wait, I hate it when you face a fishermin with a full team of magicarp. Okay, now that is annoying.
