Do you know what grinds my gears?
« on: March 23, 2016, 21:54 »

Are there some things in Pokemon that you just can't stand? Well this is the thread for you.

What really grinds my Klinks?

- The Pikachu knockoffs. Burn 'em all.
- Geodude for always being called 'Rocky' on Wi-Fi.
- When old people pronounce "Pokemon" as "Pokeman"
- Random crappy shiny forms.

Dat Peter's a Hilbert!

What if Hilda was Lois??

And Meg was Bianca, Chris was Cheren, Stewie was N, and Brian was a Zoroark???

On to the topic..

AHEM

The Battle Spot makes crappy Lv. 50 nameless clones of all your precious Pokemon you worked SO HARD to get and gave each one a lovely name and personality to, so now all they can do is sit there blankly and hit the foes with moves...
Impossible GTS trades (like a low-Lv. Legendary WHO CAN'T FRIKKIN' BREED!!) up the wazoo.
These Shinies on the GTS, I want, but I have to make ridiculous sacrifices for them!
Why are Gift Pokemon only 1 in 8 chance of being girls!?
Why can't April come any sooner, darn it!? I want my Sun and Moon leaks that aren't fake!
Germans censored English/Spanish/Italian Bulbasaur lines for containing their word for "Pig".
My Beautifly is named Mr. Peepers due to the Kalos Censorship Bureau including "spike" in their list of words the player can't type. Poor Twilight's dragon assistant...
Tramp is also a no-no!
Likely waiting for 7th Generation to stop calling every single Pokemon "it", because that implies they're mindless attack drones. At least use gender-specific pronouns (or "they/them" when regarding Pokemon who don't have gender icons at all).
If Pokerus was more common...
And if Eevee isn't findable normally in Sun and Moon until you beat the game, then SO HELP ME, I will strangle someone...!

Terrible side characters. I'm looking at you, Gen 6...
Seriously, you only battle one of your rivals once!...ONCE!
There are plenty of Magikarps in the sea. You may catch and occasional Feebas, but they are gross and ugly, so throw them back. Try as you may to find that red Gyarados, that will never happen, so just give up on that idea.

The games should have a set of key items to help navigate the region instead of HM's that occupy move slots.

I got a few more:

- That prick in seashore cave with 4 Roggenrola all with sturdy and explosion.
- All trade based evolution items (Metal Coat, Dragon Scale, etc.) should be changed to "On Use" like evolution stones.
- Diggersby, it's just so bad, I hate its face.

The ever-increasing Pokedex worries me. It's hard enough to complete the Pokedex now. On another topic I suggested that GameFreak should do a game set 3,000 years in the past with new Pokemon, and assume that these new Pokemon went extinct in the present day. That way GameFreak doesn't have to add them to the current Pokedex.

 Always found the Elite 4 annoying rather than challenging. Especially with the hyper potion/full restore spam since it always cheapened the experience for me.

 If you're the "elite" then you shouldn't need to rely on substances that provide benefits that aren't naturally provided by the pokemon itself.

 It's like being a bowling champion (not sure if they exist) but playing with the guard rails up once someone starts beating you.

Quiladin's face creeps me out. It looks like it plots to kill you as you sleep while it fidgets with a knife. That blank stare and smile is like the Billy doll from the SAW movies.

The fact that moves with 100 accuracy can miss.

- Youngster Joey's Rattata calls.
- No dark type gym.
- New forms for Zygarde. I prefer the dog to the others.
- Anything packing Prankster and moves that work with it.

A lack of alternate storylines. It would be interesting to see the character join an evil organization or become a Gym Leader.
