So, if you're playing competitive, or if you're even playing against different challenges in-game, is there a particular pokemon that you don't particularly like to battle against? What is it about that pokemon that you don't like about it?

    I particularly detest Snorlax, Walrein and Wailord. They spams Curse, use Rest, Chesto out of it, and then start spamming Body Slam/Ice Ball/Waterfall. And I'm helpless against these three. My brother isn't quite fond of Gliscor himself, and I'm sure many a player has been on the recieving end of the popular Ferrothorn lead. Although that last one is ENTIRELY a lead...

    I psyducking hate battling stall mon. In particular I find Chansey and Clefable awful to battle against.

      Mega Medicham would have to be my poison, that thing has almost no switch ins unless the mon in question is sableye or a bulky psychic type with reliable recovery. Everything else that can come in has to play a 50/50 game with High Jump Kick, Ice punch, or Zen Headbutt.

      Def Eelektross. It being an electric type, I assumed I'd be able to KO it with a ground move
      but
      NOPE. It has the ability of levitate. Making it even harder to wipe out.

      To be fair, it's also pretty mediocre by the standards of the current meta.

        hmm,

        in dpp it was rotom-a and salamence. rotom-a (all app forms were elec/ghost that gen and basically interchangeable) was a top 5 pokemon that gen and it was suuuuuper hard to play against the defensive sets because they could threaten everything with tbolt and wisp--they were not passive at all. all of my struggles to break stall that gen usually boiled down to struggling to beat that pokemon consistently. as for salamence, i still don't know what to make of latias, but salamence was stupid busted and its ban was totally deserved. dd and mixed were both broken on their own imo, so guessing between them and its gazillion other viable sets (who could forget the aldaron bulky ddmence fad, early dp specsmence, or even cbmence) was cancer. actually very similar to...

        xy was charizard because the mega-x/y guessing was not ideal (even though team structure gave it away 90% of the time), but more importantly because x have the versatility to go dd sweep or will o wisp made it very frustrating to play against. i was always weak to that thing :/

        haven't played sun/moon but zygarde seemed dumb b/c of glare. if i did play, i suspect i would hate toxapex because regenerator is a dumb ability and is the defensive side of the game's version of the more obvious offensive power creep coming in since gen 4/5. rewards sloppy play.

        also, all gens: trappers. dumbest and most broken mechanic in the competitive game, and after playing a decade i think my only real hot take is magnet pull, arena trap, and shadow tag should be banned from basically everything. totally uncompetitive and while i respect something like magneton/zone acting as a sort of inherent type balance to steel and see why my opinion with that would be minority, things like advance dugtrio and xy gothitelle (before its oras ban) are/were always stupid. no fun to play against pokemon who prevent switching in a game whose primary skill element at a competitive level comes from switching. ugh.

          Any Pokemon that can be a viable stall set:

          Numerous of these are out there, I've never played the games of new gens but from PokeShowdown I know that Toxapex is a viable stallmon, as is gengar, sableye mega, etc.
          If it can learn toxic, recover, protect, and willowisp all in one, then I hate going against it.
          Protect and Recover for obvious reasons, and then toxic cant hit steel types, but willowisp can, toxic cant hit poison types, but willowisp can.

          It's horrible to fight one of these things given how bulky they are.
          The biggest stallmons I hate: Toxapex, Wobbuffet with Destiny Bond, and Gengar
