Anyone who experienced the last CommDay would know that Liepard is utterly annoying in Randbats (and probably elsewhere). Foul Play combined with Swagger, Thunder Wave, Substitute, and the ability Prankster is a recipe for frustration. The +1 priority Substitutes makes matters worse, so that whenever the Pokemon facing it avoids parafusion hax, they will only break a Sub. After enough uses of Swagger, Liepard can take a decent chunk of HP out anything with Foul Play. Liepard is difficult to beat in Randbats because there's no way to prepare against it. Rarely will you be given a Pokemon that can check it, so you will often have to rely on luck to beat it.

Yeah I agree in randbats if the other person has liepard it is pretty much gg. I hate other annoying Pokemon that wall things a lot like Ferrothorn, but yeah Liepard is the worst.

I mostly agree with Wolf there, I had the experience of facing Liepard in Randbats on Community Day and oh god it was so difficult to beat because I always found myself paralyzed or hitting a substitute or even getting confused. Prankster, along with that moveset it was given (Thunder Wave, Foul Play, Substitute and Swagger) made it totally overpowered as I was often given teams that couldn't counter it easily.

Ferrothorn is annoying if you can't exploit its weakness, but Prankster Liepard really takes the cake if you're a regular in Randbats like me.

      I find Jirachi much more annoying to deal with than Liepard.

      Any Jirachi that abuses Serene Grace is annoying. I'm sure Wolf remembers his Jirachi last poke sweeping my Swampert and Rotom-W...COME ON

      Breloom is annoying because it never dies.

      Any Rotom-A with Will-o-wisp is incredibly difficult to remove. Good luck getting your Tyranitar out unscathed.

        Jirachi was a menace back in the day. With the power creep, Scarf has become nothing but setup fodder nowadays.

        From a UU perspective, I really despise Honchkrow. It's so infuriating if it gets a Moxie boost because most Pokemon faster then it get wrecked by +1 Sucker Punch and most slower then it die from it's harder hitting moves. Gah.

          Mind you, I haven't been a Pokefan long, and my DS isn't compatible with my internet security settings, so I only have access to main-story annoyances in B&W.

          But ANYTHING THAT USES DETECT, PROTECT, OR SOMETHING SIMILAR! I don't see any reason for them unless you are relying on Toxic to kill the enemy.

                      Latios/Latias are the cheapest sh*t ever. As a matter of fact I'm rage delaying against a random wifi guy who used one right now.

                      I'm just sitting and not clicking anything at all, cause you know, screw this guy & his latios

                      Maybe he'll just forfeit or something if I do nothing and soak up the max timer on every decision lol

                      I used to always find Rayquaza a challenge to beat when battling people. I'm not a big fan of abomasnow either since I got it past level 90 and found out it isn't very good.

                      But when it comes to pokemon I despise, Klank takes the cake.

                      Sableye....
                      Its moveset can shut down most fast and physical attackers, with a mix of Twave and Will-o-Wisp...also priority Recover.

                          After the last international challenge, I hate dealing with abomasnow. They were the bane of my existence during the tournament -.-

                              Alomomola can be a huge pain to handle in the lower tiers (RU and NU). Its just such an incredibly bulky Pokemon, almost impossible to OHKO from the physical side and can even take some special hits if need be, meanwhile it eithers starts stalling out your physical attackers with a combination of Toxic and Protect or starts passing massive Wishes to her teammates, Wishes so big in fact, that she often ends up fully healing Pokemon with lower HP stats >.>. Regenerator makes her even harder to take down, as she can simply switch out whenever you send in a Pokemon that threatens her and passively recover just enough health to start the cycle again, possibly using Toxic as you switch your Pokemon in before retreating, meaning any Pokemon that could possibly take her will get worn down before they can land the final hit if you dont play carefully :/.

                              I particularly hate Snorlax, as its ability to tank most things thrown at it and either Rest or Body Slam in your face is, to be honest, relatively infuriating. Heracross is also quite irritating, but if you switch in a Fire-type on Choice-locked Megahorn, I guess you can deal with it.

                              The only reason I am including Dusclops on this list is because it is so incredibly bad and I question the intelligence of my opponent whenever I see it. Seriously, it's a wannabe wall let down by its dismal HP stat and poor means of HP recovery; why is it still being 'championed' as a wall?

                                Gotta agree with Molk here and say that Alomomola is a pain in the freaking butt to get rid off on the physical side. Its WishPassing capabilities are also pretty annoying to handle.

                                Liepard also ruins everything I do. Oh, my Ludicolo had just set up a Rain Dance, my opponent has low-HP Regirock, mid-HP Serperior, and Liepard, prepare to get swe-WRONG! Prankster Thunder Wave from Liepard stops that, and Parafusion hax begins

                                WAIT! The list doesn't end there: any fast hazard setters like Froslass or Scolipede are pretty annoying to handle, especially when you don't have a spinner because Spikes is really crazy hard to get rid off for some reason.

                                  Liepard.
                                  It has such a cheap strategy associated with it.
