    Out of curiosity, can you please tell me about those "You know Pokemon is trolling you when..." moments? Like what game, and how? Recent or the most frustrating are best, but any one of those moments is fine, too.

    My personal moment (or at least the most recent) was with a trainer in Black 2/ White 2. Every time I used counter, I got attacked with leer. When I didn't, they used Bite. And when I decided to use counter, they decided to 1-hit KO my Riolu with Tackle. What. The. Heck.

    I think of battle facilities when I think of trolling in Pokemon games. Like, when I'm about to win, critical/status/miss hax on my behalf may cause me to lose the entire streak I'm in.

      Not sure if this counts, but at the Battle Arcade I just happened to hit the "Switch Pokemon" panel with an opponent who I had completely covered type-wise (plus they sucked, plus it was one battle before Dahlia). Needless to say I lost that battle and like a 20-win streak. Thanks Pokemon. Thanks.

        Not a big deal but still a troll moment. I once lost to Gary/Blue at the very start because he critical hit me twice. I decided just to start over. It was a minor battle but the fact I lost some starter money over something that stupid was bugging me to the point where I didn't want to move on with that file.
        __________________
        Just for fun I am running a massive favorite Pokemon poll. Unlike most common polls this will list the most favorite to the least favorite at the bottom of the page. I won't be mad if you only vote for a few of them though I would love it if you vote for all of them. PM me if you voted for all of them, I would like to keep a list of people who actively vote so I can PM them for the next round.


        -Sadly not by my choice you are forced to have a Facebook or make an account on the site to vote. I recommend making an account, the site is quite useful for tournaments of any kind and you don't even need to verified the account at all. My existing account been unverified for over a year now out of laziness.
        -You may vote as little or as much as you like though once you hit the button then it is set in stone for any votes that you did made. For example you can do half of the 1st gen one day and the other half the next. You just can't change your mind later for anything you already voted for. If the button no longer there then you voted for everything possible for that round.
        -I will only update this when I feel I have a decent amount of votes to give a decent result.
        -You may vote for that Pokemon for any given reason. Just go for your personal favorite.
        -If you need a reference of their designs then you can use this or your favorite site with images.

          For me, it's always then the opponent "conveniently" gets a critical hit. And end up wiping out the wall on my team in one shot.

          It's even worse when it's super effective.

          When you're trying to catch a legendary Pokémon, use the whole storage of balls, run out of balls so you restart and catch the Pokémon by using 1 ball!
          Seriously WTF?!

            Cheren got crit hax in the first gym battle and every time, it seemed like he knew. No Work Ups, just straight up spammed Tackle and got a crit every time. Reset, tried again, same thing happened. Exact same thing. WHAT THE **** GAME.

            I know this is more of a strategy, but I dislike it when fighting-type opponents use Endure, leaving it with 1 HP left, and after my pokemon finishes attacking, uses Reversal. BOOM. Almost certain instant KO. I tell you..the AI in B&W2 has become too smart. Forces me to save every time I near a black belt trainer in fear of losing. >

            Probably Elesa's Volt Switch strategy in Black & White. Thankfully I had a Sandile on my team so I didn't happen to me, but in some cases it feels like she's trolling you.

                When the Pokemon you used Hypnosis on wakes up at the start of the next turn every time.

                  You know Pokemon is trolling you when you're at the battle frontier, your Slobro has 3 amnesias up and a Dragonite has Thunderbolt, stuns you on the first hit, it takes 12 hits from it and one slack off to recover 6 turns worth of it, but yet the paralysis managed to get a 12 turn streak on you. Unluckiest day of my life in Pokemon.

                      i used Sleep Talk with a Rest-Sleep Talk combo Pokemon and it kept calling out Rest for 5. Damn. Turns. I was so pissed, but meh... it wasn't in a Battle Facility but it was still annoying to have that.

                          I was working through the tenth floor of the White Treehollow and I only had my Charizard left when I saw a nurse, with 30-something HP left and poisoned. She used some black magic to use Protect twice, and the poisoned killed me. .__.

                            When you notice that everyone in Black 2 is a higher level than you are.

                            All of your replies are pretty good and funny, and some I had never even thought about until now! :D Keep it up!

                                When a Shedinja is supposed to steal the spirit of whoever even looks inside its hollow body from the back, and then it dies to weather damage immediately.

                                    I have a few:

                                    One time I missed with Overheat 3 times in a row.

                                    Once in Gen 4 I was battling a friend. She critical'd me 4 times in a row, so I used the Quick Claw 4 times in a row with my Steelix to destroy her team.

                                    Once in Gen 4 I was battling a different friend. At the end we each had one guy left. I had a Blissey, he had some physical sweeper that could take out my Blissey with one hit and was faster than Blissey, but his guy was Toxic'd. The only way I could win was by successfully using Protect 4 times in a row. It totally worked, he wasn't very happy about it lol.

                                      Two things I remember from Gen 2:
                                      • The only shiny I've ever met was a Graveler. The first attack it used in battle was Explosion.
                                      • I was on route 37. The Raikou I was trying to catch was on route 36. I moved to route 36, Raikou moved to route 37. I went back to route 37, Raikou moved back to route 36...
