    Anything with Sturdy- looking at you, Boldore and Roggenrola! Usually I'll just ohko anything in my way for a bit of exp because they probably won't get to hit me and won't waste much PP, but ugh. Those two would be such good training 'mons if even half of them had somethign other than Sturdy.

      Anything that has:
      Static/paralyzing move
      Poison Sting/Poison Point
      Arena Trap/Shadow Tag
      Really high speed stat (won't let me run)

      I just started using repels recently (I know...) and I doubt I'll ever go back to life without them, unless I'm trying to catch something specific.

          Anything with Arena Trap. Also any low leveled Pokemon that give low exp.

            Oh, I don't mind the Bidoof and the Zhubat.

            What I had a problem with was actually not too long ago:
            I, being the rebel that I am, was playing a Red Version of Pokemon I had recently bought off of eBay at ten o' clock at night under my covers. I always loved taking a quick peek at the different Pokemon in the PC Boxes to see if they're worth transferring and keeping later on.

            The game started up and I was inside of some cave. I don't know which, but anyways, I was trying to find my way out since there were no escape ropes in the bag. Fumbling along, I ran across a wild Pokemon.

            And I kid you not, as soon as that thing popped out, lightning flashed and thunder rolled and I jumped out of my skin:


            I managed to get out of the cave, but not before running into a million Golbat.

            Spriting's come a long way, my good friends. A VERY long way.

            Well, I often get irritated running into wild pokémon, for example in Mount Coronet. However, in LeafGreen, where wild pokémon are actually good (I figured to overcome the problems associated with being underlevelled, i.e. spending two days grinding before the Elite Four, I'd just walk through every patch of grass and capture or defeat every wild pokémon), I've recently found Sandshrew to be awful to face. The only pokémon I have that hits it super-effectively is Clefairy, but Kadabra and Charmeleon can also hit it with special attacks. Because of this, they're all overlevelled, whilst my Pikachu still hasn't hit lv. 20. And since arriving at Vermilion City (I'm now at Rock Tunnel) 90% of my wild encounters have been Sandshrew. So I'm really starting to hate them now.

            Outside of that, its usually Golbat. I want to run, but they nearly always force me to stay in, either with Mean Look, or just I can't escape. In the former case they confuse me to death, in the latter they usually poison me somehow and whittle down the health of my lead pokémon (usually one that I'm trying to raise). Removing them in BW was a serious blessing - I didn't realise it until I replayed Diamond though.

                Definitely Zubat and Golbat.
                I also hate running into Pokemon with Arena Trap, because I have to waste my time fighting it when I really want to be somewhere else.

                I also really don't like Emolga, so I naturally hate running into it.

                    Like numerous posts before me Magikarp, Geodude, Tentacool and Zubat were the destroyers of my child hood Pokemon adventures!

                    Lol, but to add to this list my whole time playing Green I always ran into Metapod and it was by far the most annoying pokemon encounter of my childhood!

                    (Left turn Wild Metapod appeared, Right turn Wild Metapod appeared, No grass? Wild Metapod appeared)

                    Stay frosty!

                    Any pokemon with a 90% encounter rate are Pokemon that I just hate running into. That includes Zubats, Golbats, Rattatas and Weedles. Ugh, they are just so annoying imo :(

                    Pokemon that don't allow me to run away from battle. Pokemon that have a high encounter rate. Pokemon that literally just waste your time by just looking at it because KO-ing it gives you so little EXP the bar hardly moves at all. Rattata, Zubat, Diglett, Magikarp etc. etc. come into mind.

                      I consider every pokemon in the wild annoying after awhile that has levels that are 20 or 30 below your mons. WHy? cuz Imagine if your in a big rush. your team is already powerful enough. why waste time fighting wimps. as for a perticualr annoying pokemon.

                      TENTACOOOOOOOL. Zubat may be bad but tentacool out annoys it by 1000. I mean its like EVERY time I surf in the ocean ooooh a wild tenta cool appear ooooh. AND THEY WONT STOP COMING. OMG.

                        SABLE EYE.
                        In Dewford Cave or whatever, that thing is over powered, but you can't use it for that gym or late in the game so it's basically worthless. I always have troubles escaping it and it seems to be not effected by everything I try and escape it with. At least you can get a Zubat and get a Crobat out of it. And Tentacruel's learn Ice Beam and stuff. Sableeye just sucks.

                        Pretty much all of them. I stopped caring about shiny Pokemon, and ever since they started asking if you wanted to use another repel, it's been pretty swell not having to encounter any wild Pokemon.

                          Fishing....I remember there was that little spot by the laboratory trying to fish up a Kingdra (I for some reason like this guy) to add, you know catch em all. I know what you're thinking. ANNOYING MAGIKARP! You leave my little fishy alone while I tell you how annoying Basculin was. I want to get as much Pokemon as I can, which is hard. I don't need this useless striped bass thing in my way >.<

                          I loathe running into anything with Static or Cute Charm or any other ability that has a chance of activating upon contact. Boldore with Sturdy were annoying in the Victory Road, too. Super Fang users, Quick Attack abusers, and Pokemon that I can't run away from pop up to waste my life sometimes as well.

                          the bane of my existence

                          Zubats and geodudes, they ruined every cave from Kanto to Sinnoh. This were even more of a pain when you chose the fire starter. Gosh, I hate running inot zubats or geodudes.

                          and i will love to see that day

                            I think everybody hates Zubats and Tentacools. Geodude was also pretty irritating, but Zubat and Tentacool take the cake for being the most annoying.

                              Zubat in caves and Tentacool whilst surfing. They're really annoying.

                                Ferroseed is one Pokemon I hate running into. Fortunately they are only in one location and are quite rare, but still, if you see one and try to attack it, Iron Barbs will damage you in return. To make things worse, 100% of Ferroseeds have the Iron Barbs ability, not to mention that they also have the stupid Steel-typing. I'm also leaning on towards Boldore, with these guys everywhere in caves and having to waste PP before attempting to faint it because of Sturdy, but adding the fact that they are slow and also fairly easy to catch doesn't make it too bad.
                                Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

                                  Zubats, Geodudes, any Pokemon with a status inflicting move and/or ability, and any Pokemon that has Sturdy.

                                      Geodude. I hate it's cry, it's ugly as sin, and it pops up all over the diddily darn place. Easily my least favorite pokemon.

                                      Pink Moon is on its way.
