I hate all of them, but especially Paralysis, Sleep and Infatuation.

Paralysis makes me dread battles with Pokemon that have Static cos I hate getting my Speed cut and having that chance of not being able to attack (forget about the Speed drop if you have a Pokemon with Quick Feet).

Sleep is my most hated cos I hate being unable to attack while the opponent just pummels me. That's why I often try to use healing items or run back to a healing spot. Especially with all those Audino using Secret Power, which can put any Pokemon that I'm training to sleep and man it makes me mad cos it almost ALWAYS HAPPENS!

Infatuation, especially in B/W due to most wild Audino carrying Attract, meaning that if I'm training something of the opposite gender I have to be careful cos when Attract hits, I get stunned into only attacking 50% of the time and I always often fall to it. It also forces me to switch to a Pokemon that is of the same gender or with the Oblivious ability just to prevent it. Audino made me hate infatuation even more!

      Confusion and infatuation are my most hated, simply because of their sheer annoyance. All of the other major ones are at least persistent and constant in how they affect the team. Confusion/infatuation can let you be complacent for a few turns and then get you for so much more, or just completely debilitate your critter for 4-5 turns. Its the sheer unknown of what could happen that irritates me the most about confusion/infatuation.

        Let me think about this...

        I hate every last one of them!

        I make it a compulsory habit to run from a battle if my lead guy gets afflicted if possible (otherwise, I just switch to one that's either faster or immune to that ailment if I can.) & if it persists outside of a battle, that's grounds for a retreat back to the Pokémon Center, unless the afflicted didn't sustain any damage, in which that's when I break out the full heals/lum berries.

        Speaking of lum berries, I should also make it a habit to attach one of those onto my entire lineup whenever I'm facing a group of hostile trainers.

          Confusion. I always have bad luck with that one. And the fact that zubats use it in every battle is also really annoying.

          Outside of battle, Poison is just SOo annoying when you're traveling to the next route/destination/city/etc because your Pokemon either dies or it just dies the next time your battle a trainer so you just have to do it all over again once you get sent back to the Pokemon Center. :/

          In battle, Confusion/Infatuation are tied, since I can never hit when I'm affected by either of them. I can always switch out but... its harder earlier ingame when you don't have a lot of Pokemon or you're trying to get a certain Pokemon lots of EXP.

            Paralysis definitely. It's always at a crucial stage when my pokémon is UNABLE TO MOVE!!

            Everything else I can deal with but Paralysis just irks me every time.

              I had a bad time with Paralyze and Confusion in Black 2. I can't remember ever being paralized or hit because of confusion for 3-4 straight turns. And it mostly happens when I'm low on health! :(

              Sleep. Especially in competitive battles, Sleep means at least one guaranteed turn of doing absolutely nothing--that means your Pokemon is gonna need to visit Nurse Joy in a few seconds. There's a reason why Smogon decided to enforce the Sleep Clause and has nothing against the other status ailments. Guaranteed immobility is a far worse threat than a chance at immobility.

                I have always found sleep super annoying. Always right after sleep dream eater always comes. This combo right here make me so angry whenever it happens.

                  Always hated Frozen. 'Specially when I use my Mono-Type Grass team for fun. Never could have the time to buy those Thawing Agents, or Freeze Heals or whatever.

                    I would say freeze but thats so rare that I'm not annoyed when it happens to me. Confusion is probably the most annoying. My pokemon seem to hurt themselves a lot more than they dont. It gets extremely annoying.

                      You could add cursed? I would have chosen that without a doubt, it takes away so much HP...
                      But second worst for me would be Burns, especially on a physical attacking Pokemon.

                        Sleep, confusion. Being seeded is really annoying, slowly uses up HP.

                          Paralysis. In my case, if Static can activate, it will.

                            more incentive to catch a female pokemon instead. Although you cant do that sometimes..

                            confusion irks me the most ingame, since couldnt be bothered to heal with full heal/casteliacone knowing after battle it will be healed anyway

                                Definitely paralysis, it's just so frustrating and I always have the worst luck with it.

                                Poisoning sucks too, but since I usually use poison type pokemon I don't have to deal with it that often.

                                  Infatuation because there's no way in hell it has only 50% chance of immobilizing your Pokémon.

                                  Confusion sucks for me because my Pokemon pretty much always hurt themselves and on top of that, whenever I confuse the opponent, They never seem to get hurt in confusion.

                                    The only ones that I don't like is Confusion/ Infatuation. The rest of them don't bother me.

                                      Curse. Phoebe from the Hoenn's Elite 4 traumatized me with that.

                                      Poison used to be so cruel to me. In FireRed, I was in Viridian Forest when a Weedle poisoned my Squirtle. It died and I whited out ffdgfguhhh! Well, I like how the Pokemon doesn't die when you walk around with Poison anymore...

                                      In battle, I can't stand holding my breath and crossing my fingers just to see if my Pokemon gets through Confusion/Infatuation. sigh.
