Worst Things About Pokemon

These are just a few things about Pokemon that tend to irritate people. PLEASE vote AND share your opinion! Also look at the Worst Pokemon Characters list. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Elite four and full restores

This is so annoying! I can't believe that they use full restores in the games, but you can consider yourself lucky if you ever see someone use a full restore (or anything as a matter of fact) in the anime.

Just be lucky the Elite Four doesn't use reviving items to revive their Pokemon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This is v. annoying

Me: yes I'm about to defeat the elite 4! Even know my swampert is at 10 hp but dragon guy is at 1 hp so HA HA HA what he used a full restore? No

2 The TPCi voice actors

Their voices don't fit the ages of the characters, their acting is monotone and flat consistently, and they generally have egos large enough that gravity can't bring them down.

They suck so much I can't even fathom it. Like do they actually think this is a realistic voice? Nobody would talk like these whiny 5 year olds in real life. - SammySpore

Yeah...yeah 'll side with this. god that new cast is terrible - taishisohma

Horrible for 7+ years and counting: ruined Ash, Brock, TR, and everyone else in the English dub!

3 Rotating trainers

Brock probably has a squint and that's how they draw squints in anime

Hey, let's play hide and seek with the trainers! ^0^

PS: Maybe the reason why Brock never opens his eyes is because he knows that if two trainers make eye contact they will have to battle. Maybe Brock closed his eyes for the rest of his life because of that.

4 You want to evolve? Trade!

I know this makes no sense. Pokemon existed before people so how would they be able to evolve ONLY through trading. It makes no sense because the wild Pokemon can't evolve! - SammySpore

If you trade a pokemon, it's basically never coming back, so I just wouldn't bother with trade evolution.

This is especially annoying if no one near your home pays it.

5 Ash never ages

Ash is what ruined pokemon for me and is why I don't like it now! New protagonist please! He gets very... boring... maybe if he got older he would go away and we'd get a new main character... but he won't... stupid Ash...

There is a reason why Ash never ages. When he started his journey he wished on a Jirachi to go on his journey forever until he catches all the Pokemon. So in conclusion, Ash and his friends earned the ability to never age.

No. Just no. If Ash ages, he would end up being a 70 year old man. You don't want that.

Looks like professor oak gave him an anti-aging potion

6 The Legendary that you can't catch

Not fair... Like... Event coming? Have no internet?

This is why I have come to despise WPA security during my DS Lite days. - Zach808

7 Status effects

It's only good when you do it on someone else that's why they made facade or synchronize

8 Master Balls

You only get one yet there are more legendarys to catch. - FennikenFan9

You only get one a and use it for a legendary. THEN u find Mewto and u don't have a master ball. Mewto uses physic and all of your Pokemon faint. Then u realise that u could have used an ultra ball for your legendary (in the master ball)

9 Critical hit!

I don't really see whats so bad about critical hits

The main reason why I lost high win streak

Lol wild Pokemon have a higher crit rate than your Pokemon

When you are:
"I am gonna catch it!
I am gonna catch it!
One more move."
And then critical hit...

10 Zubats Zubats

Running out of repels in the middle of Rock Tunnel without a Pokemon that knows Flash. Zubats everywhere. I'm Dead. - Pikachulover1

Zubats are my favorite Pokemon - beatles5

If u have them don't play Pokemon go

This is what my code would look like after the unova victory road:
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!
You ran into a wild zubat!
You used run
You got away safely!

You used run

The Newcomers

? Rattata's feet

The Contenders

11 Pikachu loses to wild Pokemon and weak Pokemon

Pikachu: Beats legendary Pokemon then loses to a level 5 snivy.

To be fair, he and Ash were caught off guard during that battle, as Zekrom had taken away Pikachu's electric attacks. They were out of sync.

Another annoying thing is that Pikachu keeps beating over powered Pokemon, but loses to people who have never battled before. Either that's being kind or something's wrong.

Shouldn't Pikachu be at level 100 after 10+ years? But then we watch it lose to Water-Type Pokemon in the first gym. HOW DUMB IS THAT? - Pikachulover1

I think pikachu just hold back

12 Day-Care Man doesn't know where the Egg came from

Really guys, Pokemon is a KIDS game, The Man can't just say "Hey an Egg came from the vagina"

This is a kids game you want him to say "(Pokemon you left) and (Pokemon you left) had sex to make an egg" you really want him to say that do you if you do you must have a really dirty mind

It is annoying and when I post this, I'm 9. The day care man is an idiot. Well of course it came from the Pokemon, the day care man really is stupid.

He should say "some eggs are at the beach some in the forest and some in the jungle" that would be better than saying "it came from the vagina" you idiots

13 One unusually gym leader
14 The show repeats itself

I can almost guarantee that these things will happen next in the show over time. Pignite is going to evolve into Emboar and not listen to Ash until Ash breaks down and cries and blames himself, somehow they're going to say that the Toxic badge is not an official Unova Gym Badge and make Ash go get the Legend Badge, They'll find out that Iris is related to that Gym and Ash will have to battle her, and later on Cilan will go and become a chef. The End. - Pikachulover1

Dude who said that he or she can guarantee what happened all of those didn't happen

Not recognising TR (team rocket) is getting pretty repetitive and battling with them too

Each new series has new Pokémon...Ash will battle them...go into tournaments...lose...something about Team Rocket...yeah, this show is beyond the levels of predictable it should be. - naFrovivuS

15 What are the hamburgers made of!?

They probably kill Miltank and Tepig to make hamburgers. Then, sometimes, you see those Pokemon eat hamburger. Cannibals. - Pikachulover1

So mil tanks eating miltank burgers is good u say?

I think one of the Pokedex entries says that Cherrim or something like that has a certain taste. Doesn't that mean that someone had to EAT one to find that out?! - Pikachulover1

16 How whoever Ash travels with doesn't have a last name

I always thought that Alexander would be a good last name for Clemont. - RiverClanRocks

Hello! There's Todd Snap and Tracey Sketchit...Gary Oak, of course (not a traveling companion, but still an important friend of Ash)

This always bothered me. When they say that the winner is Dawn from Twinleaf Town, there could always be two Dawns. How do they know which one is which?! - Pikachulover1

17 Pikachu's annoying voice

It's so cute it helps me sleep

What? Pikachus voice is so cute!


Eh - naFrovivuS

18 Iris always calls Ash a little kid

Now THIS annoys the crap out of me. I mean seriously? Yelling at him for being happy he has six badges? Where're YOUR badges Iris? In fact, where's that Haxorus? Or Dragonite that listens to you? Or ANYTHING?! - Pikachulover1

Hey iris, who's the one who can't evolve Axew?

Hypocrite she is also a little kid Ash controlled a Charizard Infernape Torterra Sceptile Krookodule lots of good Pokemon and he has like a million badges and Irirs barely has any badges no Haxorus and can't even control a Dragonite (well it is a pseudo legendary so you would expect it but if it was Tyranitar) maybe you should have gotten a Dratini

19 How hard it is to evolve Feebas

Well they are running out of ideas for Pokemon! Feebas is an ugly COPY of magikarp and milotic is a RIPOFF from Gyarados! Oops just told a big secret to the world

I've heard that there is only a 6 in 400 chance to evolve Feebas into Milotic. The worst part:Feebas is ugly and knows splash. - Pikachulover1

How everyone else can memorize all these Pokemon? I haven't the slightest clue.

20 Gym leader uses potion

Me: Yay! You're about to die, yay! (Presses weak move to save PP)
Gym leader: Sorry. (Uses Hyper Potion)
Me: Nu! (Causes tiny amount of damage)
Gym leader: (Kills my Pokemon) - Shiverfeather
