Unova... full of many amazing, memorable Pokemon - Zekrom, Reshiram, Volcarona, Seperior - the list goes on!

However not every Pokemon found in Unova was lucky enough to be considered memorable. A lot ARE forgettable... which is ok because Unova introduced a lot of Pokemon! Too many, some may say, but that is a debate for another day.

Which of the Unova Pokemon do you find yourself forgetting about the most?

...and how did you manage to remember them again?? Maybe this thread will help jog memories!

Heatmor is quite forgettable imo. I can imagine Durant would be for some people, but for me it isn't as I used on in my main Black playthrough.

I'd say Heatmor is hands-down the most forgettable Pokemon of this generation. I also guess the Karrablast and Shelmet lines, as well as Basculin and the Tympole line are easily forgotten as well.

Tympole was one of my main Pokémon in my first playthrough, so I don't know what you're talking about. =P

I'd say the elemental monkeys are most forgettable, especially since in a Japanese poll ranking everyone's favourite Pokémon, Simisear was dead last. xD

    As a huge Pokemon fan, I don't easily forget any Pokemon species. However, the Elgyem line tends to slip my mind from time to time.

    Heatmor is really forgettable. It has a cool design, but at the same time, it's so late and rare (as I recall?) that you could possibly go through the game seeing it only once or not at all. It's not even good, either.

    Maractus is another one I feel like people forget about, which is a shame because it's hella cute and it's a cactus!! Cactus!!!

        I tend to forget the Minccino line exists. Simply put, it's an overly simple, bland Pika-esque design and the fact it's still forgettable even after it appears on the BW title screen speaks volumes on how uninteresting its design is, especially with a ton of creatively designed Pokemon around Unova. I'd even go far and say I find Maractus more memorable than it.

        Another one is the mentioned Elgyem line. I don't want them to slip my mind because they have much more interesting designs than Minccino but I guess Unova just has a lot designs I prefer over the aliens.

        Furthermore, I tend to forget Cyrogonal; I remember the design but not the name when I do the Gen 5 quizzes. :P

        There's probably more but those are the prominent ones.

        I'm not surprised Elgyem and Beheeyem are being mentioned a lot here. I love their designs, but you do have to admit their stats are so wonky and they have pretty much nothing special going for them.

          There's probably a few I've forgotten about. I tend to briefly forget about the monkeys, Toxicroak, Darumaka and Sewaddle.

            I only remember Minccino's line due to it being a good Skill Link abuser, on top of that fact you can get one easily in B2/W2. So while some people forget it, it does have redeeming qualities.

            That's interesting actually. Minccino to be has always been the one I remembered because it seemed to stand out in marketing (and everything) but for small mousey creatures... I've just totally forgot Emolga exists which is such a shame cuz Emolga is SO much cooler. :')

            I think I recall Minccino being common among 5th Gen marketing due to being a cute-looking Pokemon, and Bianca even had one in the anime to also promote that. Thankfully Emolga did end up caught by a main cast member in Iris since that now seems to be the fate of Pikaclones in the anime.

            Emolga is still fun to use in the games, don't get me wrong. It's just that its bad reputation among players is because of how annoying Elesa's Gym is.

              Basculin and Maractus, I stopped scrolling down the new Pokemon in BW list when I saw them. Reminded me that this is the fish with two different appearance, and no, I'm not looking at Cacnea or Cacturne.

                        For some reason I find Blitzle and Zebstrika kinda forgettable from this gen. I love a lot of Pokemon from this gen, so I don't really find it a forgettable gen....but those two stand out for....not standing out.

                        The funny thing is I usually find "forgettable" pokemon memorable just because they're forgettable. (Lumineon for example) so it ends up being the semi-forgettable Pokemon that are actually the most forgettable for me. If that makes sense.

                        I'm the same way to be honest, when I answer this question it's more like "Which Pokemon would be the least likely to pop into my head if I thought about Pokemon" rather than "Oh wow I forgot this Pokemon existed".
