    I've know this has been asked dozens upon dozens of times, but what Pokemon do you consider to be most annoying when found wild?

    For me I'd say the Bronzor line. When I first saw a Bronzor (I took a break from Pokemon between the 3rd and 4th generations, so by the time I got Pearl I only knew the starters and their evo lines, due to a poster) I immediately thought "What's that? A metallic coin? Cool!" Then I was sort of amazed at how hard it was to faint one of those things. Seriously, they have a good defense, and their typing is one of the best possible in the game (Not to mention that due to their ability, they only have one weakness, which is either Fire or Ground) Not to mention that they have a moveset as annoying as Zubat's, except that not only do they confuse you, they can also put your Pokemon to sleep. As said above, I knew nothing about Gen IV's mons, so try to guess my surprise when I saw these "Indestructible metallic coins" had an evolved form. Not to mention that aside from status moves, decent typing, good abilities, and strong defenses, these things can learn Block, which is pretty much another version of Mean Look. Thankfully, Bronzong and Bronzor are only found at very few places, such as Mt. Coronet, so they shouldn't prove themselves to be much trouble for players. Your opinions?

        ^ I was missing Zubat in Pokemon Black... :P

        Mine are either Trapinch or Diglett with Arena Trap as their ability, if I have an electric type Pokemon out, who can't possibly deal any damage, I am forced to watch it faint! :(

          All Pokemon that appear at the Victory Road in RSE. I was doing a Sapphire Nuzlocke and I had to train a lot since half of my team was underleveled. What's the annoyig part? Almost everyone on the first floor knows Roar or Whirlwind, except for Zubat and Golbat. It was really annoying as Hariyama was bulky and couldn't be easily defeated. Worst part is, wasting PP. I damage it to the critical area and it uses Whirlwind. I encounter a Lairon, it blocks my Hydro Pump with Protect and then uses Roar. Even Makuhita was guilty of doing that, but at least it was easier to kill. The game was really frustrating. I think that I won't touch a RSE game again anytime soon.

            agree with Polizard'12. Arena Trap really frustrates me. I haven't gone into Mewtwo's cave in HG because of all the Arena Trap Wobbuffets there.
            Zubat is cool. I actually find Tentacool more annoying.

            Most annoying wild Pokemon for me:

            Bronzor - These things have a good defensive typing, can confuse and put you to sleep and even use Block. Man, I hate fighting those things cos they always leave me screwed.

            Zubat - The ultimate annoyance of caves that makes any Trainer mad. And why? They confuse you, poison you, trap you, drain you and they are hard to escape from if you have a slow Pokemon!

            Trapinch/Diglett/Dugtrio - Specifically the Arena Trap variant. If you are training an Electric-type, you're screwed. You CANNOT escape unless if you have a Flying-type or something with Levitate so if you send out the wrong Pokemon against it, you could see it fainting right in front of your eyes!

            Roggenrola/Boldore - One word: Sturdy. Man, they are easy to catch but bad for training against if you want to knock it out cos if you attempt to knock it out in one hit, it would just cushion the hit, survive and hit you back. Thankfully they are easy to escape from.

              Roggenrola. I never run from wild Pokemon, and I can usually 1 hit KO them. But Sturdy makes it difficult, and just wastes my move PP so fast.

                OMG Zubat/Golbat in the caves I've used like 100 times

                In the grass you just don't get enough of those rattata.

                I'll have to side with mostly everybody else and say Zubat/Golbat. I absolutely no love for Golbat because when I'm trainer slower Pokemon and I'm low on repel I'll end up running into what seems like hundreds of them and I'll waste like 2-3 turns trying to run away and not being able to escape and even then they'll use mean look and make it so I have to fight them.

                In caves, I find Zubat, Geodude, Woobat and Boldore very annoying to run into. In D/P/Pt's early grass routes, Bidoof really got on my nerves. In the sea, particularly R/S/E's, Tentacool were very annoying to bump into every 5 minutes.

                  The Sturdy ones are easily the most annoying. Zubats/Rattata/Pidgey and their variants are certainly plentiful, but they can easily be dealt with in one hit, provided that your team is a suitably high level. So Roggenrola has to be the most infuriating in that regard, given that there's no other ability it can have (save its Dream World one, obviously) and its prevalence in caves. Ughughugh. And it has an annoying name to boot, making it even more frustrating to battle!

                    Well, Zubat are numerous, but they don't disturb be that much. I think they're as much annoying as Pidgey, Rattata, Zigzagoon and every other Pokémon you find at the beginning of the game. So, not a lot, we have to do with it anyway, and when we start our journey we often need at least one of them.
                    BUT. Tentacool. Who need a Tentacool for their team? I guess not a lot of people. So why are they so numerous? They ruin all the pleasure of surfing when it's to early in the game to have repels... I can't stand them. And they're ugly. And poison your team.

                          This plus Golbat. Countless times I would be trying to exit Victory Road in Gen 1 and 3, and I'd run into a Zubat or Golbat that I couldn't escape from and pretty much hit a critical with every attack.

                                Besides the obvious choices like Zubat and Tentacool, my least favorite wild Pokemon has to be Beldum. The wild Pokemon is encountered in DPPt in a sandstorm route during a swarm. All it knows is Take Down and it has a catch rate of 3 which is equivalent to Mewtwo and Lugia.

                                Basically, you will be throwing a lot of Pokeballs at it while it will slowly kill itself with Take Down.

                                  Zubat is the only annoying Pokemon for me. Everytime I step into a cave, Zubat is the first darn thing that shows up on my face. Which is why I stack up loads of repels.

                                  Tentacool is averagely annoying too but I don't go into the water often so it's not a big deal.
