What I mean is when you are battling and the opposing pokemon uses one of those moves that just frustrates you during battle. If that makes sense. XD

Basically, for me, it would be moves like Attract, moves that paralyze or simply just make it hard to battle. They frustrate me so much. It just makes battling so difficult!

So what about you?

Same as you; any status inflicting moves. Confusion especially, because attacking yourself just sucks. SWAGGER, ugh.

I also dislike Curse. You lose so much HP. =S

    Nothing, and I mean nothing, was as bad as wrap or bind in RBY. Being completely unable to attack for around 5 turns. You were allowed to select a move, but never use it.

    Attract, Paralysis, Accuracy Lowering Attacks all allow you a (small) chance to attack. Not the old Wrap. Made me hate training before the 2nd badge against Ekans.

    I forgot about curse, especially playing against Morty in SOul Silver. Ugh. I thought my Togetic was going to faint because of that move. D:

      When my friend used to use his Absol on Diamond WIFI against me, ME FIRST.
      I HATE me first, it always wipes out half my team before I get a chance to attack. But now I play a bit more strategically so it isnt that much of a problem anymore.

        Roost is my biggest frustrating move used against me (my main reason that I dislike bird Pokemon) it always seems to restore about 2/3rds of their health.

        My other annoying moves (at least when they are used against me) are the ones that Beyond Infinity mentioned above (except for Paralysis though)

        Supersonic. Whenever I'm in a battle and the opponent uses this move, my Pokémon get immediately confused. This reduces my chance of damaging the opponent's Pokémon significantly and also makes it easier for me to lose health, which is quite upsetting. d: I'm not such a big fan of DynamicPunch, either. It damages you and leaves you confused at the same time. Isn't that annoying? Most Machamp use DynamicPunch, as they have the No Guard ability. No Guard makes sure that you always get your attack landed onto the opponent, regardless of how low the accuracy is. Along with Supersonic and DynamicPunch, I also dislike Spore. This move is just… ugh. ): Once you're struck by it, you are guaranteed to fall asleep, and wouldn't wake up until two - three turns. This gives your opponent enough time to have you taken down.

          Protect, seeing as it's pointless to give the AI, but Game Freak do so anyway.
          The most frustrating move as used by players would of course be Stealth Rock. That move should not be as widely usable as it is. Few things can use (Toxic) Spikes; the same should be true of Stealth Rock.

            The moves I have the most frustration with are trapping moves like Wrap and Bind-especially in Gen. I-opponents would spam these moves if your Pokémon was particularly slow, making it impossible to move-and these moves would last at least 4 turns or more. Yet when I used these moves-they rarely lasted more than 3 turns.

                  Usually any move that has a chance of missing, but obviously not literally like the pathetic DoubleSlap. Moves such as Swagger, Thunder, Sleep Powder and DynamicPunch are some notable annoyances.

                    I have the absolute worst luck with ice beam, Usually getting frozen at an abnormally high rate. I remember facing this Blissey a while back who would freeze me every 2-3 ice beams.

                      Roost and Milk Drink; I'm glad only the gym leaders use them, but seriously, regaining a bunch of HP without using an item is just BS.

                      Also, the AI never uses Protect correctly and that gets annoying. (seriously, use it after Focus Energy or something, not in the middle of my Wing Attack spamming)

                        Whenever an opponent uses Protect when I'm about to attack, that drives me crazy. Oh, and Confuse Ray and the other moves that give your Pokémon status conditions. You use a Full Heal or other item to clear it up, then they may go right back and use Confuse Ray, etc all over again.

                              Splash. just...ugh. Why? Why does such a useless move exist? No other move annoys me as much as splash. Just a big, fat, waste of everyone's time.
                              Then you have Roar, Whirlwind, and Protect. Just. No. No, GameFreak. No. ):<

                                Things that become more powerful when the other team is hurt, like rage and retaliate. In Mystery Dungeon, I don't attack protected Pokémon until protect wears off, but my friend Pokémon don't seem to get that and just waste PP.

                                The people of the Pokémon world aren't too creative. They named Pokémon after what sound they make. If we were like them, a cow would be called a "moo".

                                I'm Reading...
                                Just finished a volume of Soul Eater, volume 14. At this point, it has become very different compared to the anime, and I kind of like it. Some of the characters have gotten a lot more fleshed out (specifically the meister team of Ox, Kilik, and Kim), and things are happening quite differently. An exciting read.

                                I'm Playing...
                                The iPod music game, Cytus. While I may not know very many of the songs, I really like its music, and the gameplay is easy to pick up yet takes quite a while to master. A friend has seen me play it and he says I make it look easy, but I am still having a fun and challenging time. Definitely worth the price.

                                  -Focus Blast
                                  These moves are just so annoying. At least with Protect and Detect if someone tries repeating it, it fails and they lose. These, they can just spam until it hits something it isn't effective against. And they do SO much damage. Getting my brick wall Snorlax hit by a Focus Blast in the Champions Tournament in Black 2 usually signifies to me I'll be having a bad time.

                                    Attract has to be the most annoying move of all time, and it only adds insult to injury when a Pokemon like Garbodor is the one using it.

                                      I really hate Mat Block. I hate the fact that all pokémon can be protected by just one move :/

                                        Trick to counter that. When you see a pokemon you know has that available, use something like hypnosis on them, and status changers on the other(s). Right now it's only Greninja that has it, so that's pretty easy to plan for. Most of the pokemon with hypnosis, the highest success rate for sleep, are tanks too, so no fear putting them in the lead.

                                        Another good counter is to use a high priority move for the first ones if you suspect mat block will be used, you'll still hit them before the mat block is put up.

                                          Attract! Oh god, I hate that attack so much. When you become infatuated, they can seriously KO you. And when you're the one that's using it, it's fun but when you are the victim; Ouch!

                                          Well at least you still have a 50/50 change of attacking. Thank god Gamefreak didn't make Attract a move where it disables every single move!
