Things that grind your gears!

This is a thread to share all of your pet-peeves that involve anything Pokemon.

If I had to list just one I'd say that it would be this: Trading a legit Pokemon on the GTS for one that seems too good to be true, only to find out that it was too good to be true, and that it was hacked/cloned. Since I very recently started using Pokecheck, I can weed out pretty much any hacks in any way shape or form, and it bugs me. :p

But what annoys the hell out of me is that I have to trade these off to another poor soul who has no idea that what they're getting is an illegitimate Pokemon. D:

What about you guys?

How about just not being a deceptive jerk and releasing the Pokemon, rather than trading them?

Reading this grinds my gears! How can you trade illegitimate Pokemon to others? Do you not have a conscience? :mad:

Always replacing like 3 of your team members with hm idiots like surfers, flyers, and strenghters and rock smashers.
And also, searching hours in the GTS but always finding that the people want legendaries under level 9...

Why not release the Pokemon instead of trading it another unfortunate person?

You know what really grinds my gears? When you're about to defeat a Gym leader's strongest Pokemon, and the Gym leader uses a Hyper Potion/Full Restore, even when one uses quick attack or extremespeed. Just think how that scenario would look in the Anime.

Ironic. It would look ironic.

How about a very strong Klinklang uses Shift Gear, increasing its Attack to 150% and doubling its Speed? That grinds my gears... literally... as the Knlinklang will usually use Gear Grind afterwards.

Something that really grinds my gears, is when your opponent score many critical hits in a row, and you barely score one...

Confusion, has always irritated me. And the fact that many moves that aren't particularly powerful can miss eg. Rock Slide, Metal Claw, Steel Wing, Fly and Take Down.

I'm gonna miss my boi Deoxys...
moves that hit 2-5 times have a 1/8 chance of hitting 5 times.


The enemy hits 5 times all day long.
