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 Black 2 & White 2.

Yeah, I remember training my Purrloin/Liepard. It was not fun.

And I had to do whatever it takes to raise my Deino into a powerful Hydreigon.

    The Emboar line was the biggest disappointment for me. Don't get me wrong, I loved its power and wide move-pool, but its pitiful speed and defense killed it for me. Plus the only good fighting move it could learn was Brick Break (it could learn Superpower, but I'm not a big fan of it).

    I guess there were two Pokemon that disappointed me when playing my first playthrough. It was Liepard and Minccino. I was hoping for a dark-type Pokemon in my team, so I went for a Liepard. I could not pass the 2nd Gym with it. :(

    During the B/W craze, I wanted to rename a Minccino after the Japanese name, Chillarmy. Then I realized that using it for battles is a bad idea. I trained it 5 levels higher than Elesa's Pokemon and still can't managed to beat them.

    Both Pokemon were then replaced by Leavanny and Zebstrika.

      I think that Liepard/Purrloin was a massive letdown. Sure, it was a bit useful earlier in the game, but really, as said earlier, it's a throwaway pokemon, and I really don't like them. I even struggled to get it to level 20! I has really bad move pool in the early level like Shinx, but unlike Shinx, Luxuray was worth it... Liepard wasn't.

      Simipour was sadly not on par with my other Pokémon in battling prowess, so I did find that disappointing. I also got really sad that Simisear on my other playthrough was just slightly stronger but still not sturdy enough. It just gave me the impression that I should just outright store Pansage in the PC if ever I choose Tepig, I just didn't want to get disappointed again.

      And before I forget, Archeops also turned out to be far from what I expected him to be.

        I was dissapointed with ALL the starters.

        In my white game I didn't even use my starter and opted for Musharna and Liepard.
        Both to be replaced again.

        To be honest The Unova Pokedex was a massive let down.
        The pokemon had par battling ability's.

            Disappointments? Well, I have a lot of them. IMO, the starters sucked. all three of them. I liked most of the dark and ghost types, and a few of the steel and rock types.

            Generally speaking though I find most of the pokemon unusable.

            The starters did pretty well for me.

            Serperior was the only one that sucked for me, probably cos mine had a hindering nature.

                Well, honestly, i was pretty disappointed in Zebstrika. I half expected him to be a force to be reckoned with, then found out the hard way he's a squishy little thing.

                  I'm a bit disappointed that Druddigons base stat and especially it's speed weren't a bit higher. A Pokemon that cool-looking deserves better. :'(

                    Pansear/Simisear. Ugh. That thing was just so hard to use. I ended up boxing it after Burgh. I literally couldn't use it with such a weak STAB in Incinerate.

                    Well, Magnezone isn't a Pokemon from gen 5. :x

                    But yeah, I didn't really expect anything great from Tepig/Emboar originally and as a result it didn't really disappoint me, luckily. I was actually quite pleased with them. XD; Oshawott/Snivy, however, haven't really used so can't judge.

                    Yeah, agreed on that.

                    You get it a Level 10, to help against Cilan's Pansage who will counter your Oshawott. The problem is that Pansear has to stick with the very weak Incinerate for 12 levels.

                      I had to stick with Pansear too, I had it to be like Lvl 15 until Pinwheel Forest, then 21 till Chargestone Cave. After Flame burst, things started looking OK, then the next problem, its still lvl 35 and all the routes are rainy. Couldn't train it there, so I had no choice but to evolve it and get Simisear to beat up Brycen. After that, I got Reshiram. It was a whole waste of time.

                        This generation is worth its salt with all the great Pokemon it cranked out. Most of the Pokemon previous posters have found disappointing have redeeming qualities. However, I cannot forgive...

                        ...Purrloin and Liepard.
                        Purrloin is annoying to fight, and even when I do catch one I never want to evolve it.

                        I seriously hate Liepard. It's not very pleasant to look at, and it doesn't measure up to the evolutions of other generic Pokemon. Even Watchog could decimate it.

                        ...Roggenrola.
                        I haven't checked out its evolutions because I dislike it so. It is annoying to fight (especially when I'm looking for Woobat or something else), particularly because it has the ability Harden. Unlike past Rock-type cave dwellers, this guy doesn't seem to show any promise...not that I care for Rock-types.

                        The rest are fine. Actually, most of the rest are pretty decent, if not great.

                          PURRLOIN...

                          So, shortly after tearing open the packaging for Pokemon white, and booted up the game and prepared from multiple fan gasms. It began veeeeeeery slooowwwly, as ALL Pokemon games do. Mainly because Game Freak doesn't want you to start with the running shoes. I got my Starter, frankly I wasn't a big fan of any of them at first, but Sinvy and Oshowatt grew on me a little bit. So, on my first venture through route 1, I encountered the 3 Pokes you could obtain up to that point.
                          Lillipup, Purrloin, and Patrat.
                          I didn't bother to pick up Patrat, knowing it was some Rattata clone that would be equally as sucky. I caught Lillipup, as my instincts told me it would be somewhat decent. Then I caught...PURRRLOIN....

                          It was almost impossible to train. I DID actually manage to get it to level 7. But I got FED UP, because AT LEVEL 7, it was getting killed by level 2's!

                          After a little searching, I saw its evolutions base stats and puked. Horrible attack, its frail, and only good thing about it is speed. And yet again, it gets OUTSPED BY EVERYTHING.

                              For me, I found Pansear to be the most disappointing. I thought, "How can a primate-like pokemon who knows how to use fire possibly be bad?". It was bad.

                                  I don't know what's wrong with Purrloin/Liepard. I love using them. Maybe because they fit with my type of battling! Or just because they are cats. But i really don't like Sigilyph. TERRIBLE POKEMON ALERT! Yup. That's the first thing coming to mind when i'm battling it. Design? Even worse.

                                    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.

                                      Being Uber in the metagame =/= to being good in-game. It really needs a sandstorm going to be successful and needs some good EV training as well.

                                      And I hate to take the lazy route here, but pretty much all of Unova disappointed me, but at the same time none of them did. My hopes for interesting new Pokemon were crushed with Diamond and Pearl(although I really liked the new evolutions in that game) that I couldn't get my hopes up too high.
                                      By far the worst Pokemon of ALL TIME has to be Vanilluxe though, its a f[expletive]ing ice cream cone, and a stupid looking one at that!

                                      I did like a few, such as Giglaith, Zoroark, Reniclus, Axew, and Victini, but there aren't very many more. There are some pretty awesome battlers though.

                                        Haha, I'm probably the only person who would say this, but for me it was Stunfisk.

                                        And I know it's a novelty Pokemon, so it's not supposed to be all that great, but I run novelty/NU/RU teams anyway. I was intrigued by its typing-Electric/Ground was definitely not something you see everyday, right? I had really high hopes for it, but...well, I guess I aimed too high.

                                        I mean, its defenses aren't bad. Actually, it kind of absorbs attacks. But Stunfisk is a major pain to train, because you have to constantly switch it in and out of battle (I bred mine), and it doesn't have the Attack/Sp. Attack to deal too many blows. Additionally, it was weak to too many commonly used types, such as Water, Grass, and Electric, so I decided maybe it wasn't the best choice for my gimmick team.

                                        ...Not that I wouldn't use it, just not competitively. For battles against friends, sure. Imagine their faces if they saw a Lv. 100 Stunfisk on the battlefield...
