Top 10 Worst Pokemon Moments

The Top Ten
1 Misty and Brock leave

Before I knew Pokemon was all one big series, I was always busy watching Pokemon X and Y. One day my brothers came in my from and saw me watching and then became really mad. They turned the T.V. off and told me to watch the old series. So. I looked up the old series on and immediately fell in love with the characters. To see them go on such amazing adventures growing closer every time made me happy. Brock, Misty, and Ash were like a team, they stuck together. It always made me excited to watch the next episode. The next day while looking up what episode was next, I found that they put "Gotta Catch Ya Later". I watched the episode and found out it was a goodbye episode. I was so sad watching it that I couldn't help but cry. And barely cry. The thought of seeing the characters you soon grew so close to go away. Ash crying, Misty's tearful song, it all made your emotions overwhelm. And even though Brock stayed the series didn't feel the same. May was to whiny, Max was mean, ...more

I honestly don't think they've implemented better characters in the anime than Misty and Brock. Misty was rude at times, but for the most part was friendly, smart and a comforter to Ash. Brock could be a bit annoying, but has there been any other character in the anime who was as hilarious and knowledgeable on Pokemon? I really hope Ash travels back to Kanto and visits Misty and Brock. because the characters these days are so annoying! May was annoying, Max was a pointless companion, Dawn was okay I guess... But Iris was mean to Ash, Cilan was just... UGH... Bonnie wastes time, Clemont takes himself too seriously, and Serena is a WALKING GIRLY STEREOTYPE. And they're probably gonna make Ash date Serena and forget about Misty. T_T

Well I was okay with misty because the first Pokemon episodes I watched were from sinnoh when Brock was still there. But I'm 12 so I was maybe 7 at the type and my sister loved Pokemon. But anyways since that was the first one I watched, I didn't really know misty but I watched old episodes with my sister too. Anyways Brock was always in the episodes I watched and he's been there forever. Plus he has no eyes which makes him cooler. Well, he does, but they're always closed.

Most saddest moments in Pokemon.I cried a lot when I watch this episode especially when misty was remembering her memories with ash and brock in her goodbye song because I was watching Pokemon from FIRST episode when ash become a Pokemon trainer and met misty and brock. it was just the end of our childhood other Pokemon characters ARE just a dump. Not feel to like watch Pokemon now. ASH MISTY AND BROCK TOGETHER WERE BEST!

2 Going through a cave and battling Rattatas, Zubats, and Geodudes every 2 seconds

Laugh out loud I so remember when I was little I would play the gameboy Pokemon firered and I went into mt. Something and every step I toke I would always get mad because I would get in a battle with a zubats and geodudes and rattatas I so almost cracked my phone but eventually it did crack but not by me by my bro

I am pretty sure that repels were made for caves. We all want to catch Zubats? Not really. Come on, Gamefreak there are much better and LESS common Pokemon to put in a cave. Once I walked into a cave and couldn't use Flash because a Zubat defeated my levl 5 Togepi.

This is my biggest problem. I'm trying to play a Crystal Nuzlocke, and all these dumb Geodude keep showing up! I'm literally lost and I haven't made it to the first gym cause I'm scared to go in the cave.

A wild zubat has appeared.
A wild zubat has appeared.
A wild zu-*shoots D.S. *
"The wild zubat has fainted. "

3 The RageCandyBar guy

I didn't know you were supposed to go to the radio tower and stop team rocket... I went to the olivine light house and I went everywhere else he said. Nothing

Excuse me? You can't get past him until you do a certain event (not saying it, spoilers). Please do not post inaccurate info.

The rare candy bar didn't do anything anyways

Sir, mind you own buisness. I'm 10 and I can do what I want, unless you want to get rekt by my Furret.

4 Fainting a Pokemon that you want to catch

Well yes it does suck. but there are ways you can catch them. Like for en example, I wanted to catch a level 30 Ponyta in Pokémon X and Y Safari. So But I sent out my level 100 Arceus. I can't weaken it Because my Arceus Is way too strong. SO I decide to use a quick ball and BAM! Got it! ( And I'm not joking It really happened )

I wasted 5 hours trying to get a stupid Ralts because I kept killing them off. And I got my starter to level 40 by that time and it refused to obey me till I got the next badge.

I hate this! I wanted to catch a Combee for wonder trade and I made it faint. But then I caught one later and got a scraggy in return. Scraggy is adorable I'm really close to mine now.

If I encountered an Arceus (even if I have one) and I killed it I would rage quit

5 Your main Pokemon faints

You're fighting this really hard Pokemon or trainer with your number one Pokemon and all seems well, then suddenly BOOM! He uses sheer cold on your main star and he's out cold with only your much much weaker other team of Pokemon available.

Your reaction: I'M GONNA DIEEE!

This is how you play Pokemon. Train one Pokemon (starter) then beat everyone. But when he dies your screwed

I found this Pokemon game and all the Pokemon were 20 levels apart and the best Pokemon fainted. OH CRUD!

It dosnt really happen to me after I deleted my old black account but when I had my black account it happend to me A LOT... it was dreadful.

6 Squirtle leaves

What Squirtle? I don't recall Ash having any Squirtles. He gave it to Serena, right? And Serena gave him a Chespin. Ya.

I love ash's squirtle's cool personality. When he left I was actually gonna cry!

Yay man he. Like. A Pokemon bad boy

This makes me sad and mad

7 Trainer battles everywhere

Well I do agree its pretty annoying! But at least it makes your Pokemon Very strong!

I don't mind trainer battles.

A wild Lass appeared!
Sends biddof!
You send charizard!
You use flamethrower!
Bidoof fainted. You got 12$
A wild youngster appeared.
He sends starly!
Go Charizard, use dragon rage!
You defeated youngster! You got 13$
A wild appeared.

Way too many!

8 You're stuck trying to catch a Legendary Pokemon for hours

I gave up on catching Kyogre. I spent several hours trying to catch the jerk.
Another legendary that pisses me off is the legendary birds in x and y! you have the encounter the things 12 times before YOU CAN ACTUALLY BATTLE! the problem is: every time you changes routes, cities, have a battle, fly OR BASICALLY DO ANYTHING, he moves his area! It's so hard to catch!

This has never been a problem of mine. Somehow, Legendaries love me. I can throw an Ultra Ball at Rayquaza and catch it first try. That's what I'm planning for ORAS, anyway.

Zygarde and Mewtwo in Y. Mewtwo was an absolute ASS. Breaking out of every single ball. When I battled Zygarde he would just not go in. So I dropped the M-Ball. Wellp, Kyle and Zyggy are living a good life in the PC now

Yo Zekrom baby come and face me... One hour later "Gah so close" "the pokemon is free of the ball" another hour one master ball left wasting all my ultraball what

9 Charmander evolves

To make things worse, charizard is too overrated to be ignored and ruined the other charizards/charmeleon's reputation and and will inevitably over-shadow Charmander forever, poor little thing :(. They ruined a Pokemon with potential to a dragon with anger problems.

Makes me upset that togepi got more screentime than charmander and it feels like the show is mising something and that's the lovable fire-breather who was replaced by the most overrated Pokemon.

WHY do they have to bring it back?! Why can't Ash have Torterra or something instead of Charizard in Black and White?

It is not even funny the sweet charmander evolved to a pissed off rednick called charmeleon

10 Teaching your Pokemon HM moves

Just needing HM moves in general sucks we should just be able to fly with flying Pokemon, surf with Pokemon who can go on water, have a flashlight, rock climbing gear, etc...

I give my second vaporetto to my sis. It knows surf and it can't be traded. Same thing happens with onyx WHY! WHY!

What I hate is that Pokemon can't forget HM moves. Teach your HMS to your worst Pokemon that can learn them.

Apparently you CAN delete HM moves. They aren't permanent. You just need the move deleter and apparently that's the only thing you can do.

Anyways this really sucks especially that I use HM slaves now and take up my space.

The Contenders
11 Getting an awesome TM then none of your Pokemon can learn it

WHY can't Dedenne learn Dazzling Gleam?! I really needed a fairy-type move which was good for her, but she couldn't learn Dazzling Gleam! Come on, she is Electric/Fairy type, so Dedenne should be able to flash! It's so annoying when your Pokemon can't learn the move you want them to learn! Are they doing this on purpose?!

Yes! I got thunderbolt! Okay who can learn it? What? No one? Greninja come on other water types can shoot lightning why can't you? Seriously Yveltal you are a legendary you should be able to shoot lightning!

Ok, frost breath
Wha? You simipour! Why can't you learn it?
Oh never mind, minun can- wait, what?
None of you can learn it!

Xreaneas can learn dazzling gleam... But Lucario can't learn gyro ball?! Crazy...

12 You forget to save

Once I caught a shiny. I was so excited I forgot to save afterwards and my mum comes and tells me to do homework, I shut my 2ds down and when I'm doing homework, I cry.

I never done that. It must be painful!

I was on my 6th gym

I lost a perfect IV Marowak like this. Save often, kids.

13 Ash and Serena kiss

This is essentially one of the worst scenes of this anime because it seems to me that Serena was mostly shipping bait for the series.

One of the best moments, this is the type of girl Ash deserves. Not a brat like Misty.

No it was supposed to be Ash and Misty... Oh well its not as big as years ago.

I like Serena, but Amourshipping in general feels forced. None of the Ashx ships will work.

14 Alain beats Ash

Alain was wedged into the series out of nowhere like somebody's black and red pony OC, and he just basically spammed Dragon Claw 15x. Mega Charizard or no, how ON EARTH is that deplorable combo supposed to win?! Score one for Kanto pandering, 0 for the new gen.

It should have ended in a draw.

15 Brock leaves

This one made me cry. Why do you not like Brock. I remember in the indigo league episodes he really made me laugh, like in Bridge Bike gang, when he failed to get a biker girl twice, and the league when he was flirting g with a lot of girls.

If your talking about when he seemingly p Mr manentlyeft at the end of diamond and pearl I actually liked it because it was so sad in my opinion!


Sure there was the green guy and the guy in the glasses...
But honestly they're quite boring.

It was fun how he loved girls and either misty, max or his Pokemon pulled him away.

16 Trying to get the shiny charm

Completing the national dex is just WAYYY to hard for me, I have a life man!

17 Your shiny chain ends

Okay, to the person who killed a Charmander, are you using a nuzlocke?! You know starter Pokémon aren’t wild. (Well, certainly they are.) - UltimateHarms

Okay, 37 straight, let's go, Shiny Pikachu!

A wild Scatterbug appears!

This exact story happened to me yesterday.

I almost cach a shiny charmander but I asidentaly
Killed it and I cried

The poke raider blows

18 Cilan crying because he is excited

In "An Epic Defense Force! ", Cilan starts getting excited over movies, then the next thing you know he's sitting on a bench with Ash, Iris, and Luke crying as he wipes away his tears with a handkerchief. I'm thinking "Wow, and I thought girls cried more easier"

I can't believe they replaced awesome Brock with the unnaturally green haired monster he is.

He does that because he is PROUD of himself

Cilan is the worst. Ever.

19 Team Rocket's new motto(s)

Seriously the new voices for the characters aren't't all that bad ash actually sounds older in diamond and pearl in key opinion!

"Listen, is that a voice I hear? " What Jessie you have a hearing problem or something?

Stop acting like Season 1 and Misty/Brock are the only good things.

My babies... What have they done to you? Your voices.. Are terrible!

20 Trying to catch a legendary Pokemon but you run out of Pokeballs

I know the feels! by the way, what he means is that a Masterball has a really low chance of failing. I saw some people have it fail and I finally thought "Wow I guess my luck really isn't that bad :P"

? I have no idea what the guy is saying below but master balls is 100% catch rate hello?

That's why you save next to them always...

I've Done That Once, So Sad

21 You use a master ball on a Caterpie

Oh a pokeball that is guarenteed to catch a Pokemon. Let's use it on a worthless Caterpie

Why would you do that?


22 Don't have Pokeballs left

While roaming jhoto in crystal, and when I saw a raikou, I decided to use my ultra ball, but when I looked into my bag, I HAVE NO BALLS!

I found a shiny Mawile once and I was out of Pokeballs. I was upset for hours.

No balls haha

Worst thing no Pokéballs!

23 Dawn leaves

I loved Dawn and Piplup.
Then came Iris and Axew.
Pokemon was ruined.
And finally Serena comes in.
Thank God the show is still good.

I actully cared about this character. I hated Misty, was indifferent about May, then came the precursor to good girl protagonists.

After she and Brock left, Pokemon was doomed

Dawn was one of the best characters on the show. Then, Iris came. Well, at least Pokemon was good, once... :(

24 Can't catch Shiny Beldum

Beldum has a very very very low catch rate and if you lower its health by 1 hp it will use take down which is a recoil move so it will kill it

25 Ash's Lv. 100 Pikachu lost to Trip's Lv.5 Snivy

Completely idiotic. Even without his Electric-type moves and being weakened by Zekrom, Pikachu should've stomped. One Iron Tail would've ended it if this fight was remotely realistic in terms of Pikachu's strength.

I saw that episode. Lemme explain:
Pikachu got zapped by a Zekrom near the airport and water. Pikachu is such a wimp. 20x more electric should make you kill a snivy in one shot. But no. You couldn't use thunderbolt.

ASH Pikachu would've been better not using electric moves it's a frkken grass type which is resistant to grass and people yell at Camoron for not getting basic stuff well Ash has been doing this for 4 + regions by then he SHOULD know this stuff by now what?

I was so raged by this that I keep complaining about this episode and moment, so I never watched this episode again.
