    That makes no sense. Base 140 attacks have never been an issue for any endgame battles. And Light of Ruin's recoil is half of whatever you deal to your opponent, so it wouldn't be hard to beat.

    This is true. Self Destruct causes massive damage when it hits and same for Explosion and you can find both on Wild Graveler in every game it can be caught in. And some of the Z-Moves used by NPC cause even more destruction so there’s that.

    As I can recall, there are also Koffing in RBY that use Self-Destruct and it makes the battle a lot easier because the Koffing KO themselves even though your Pokémon won't necessarily faint despite Self-Destruct doing damage as if your Pokémon's Defense is halved.

    Trying to get Guzzlord in USUM is an utter nightmare and nobody can tell me otherwise

    They're mostly upset about it not being generation 8, not gen 4 remakes.

    Exploring the Abyssal Ruins other than the Dive aspect because of the step limit of 500 steps in the ruins, making it impossible to get all items in one trip like the Kanto Safari Zone and limiting efficient exploration.

    Satoshi & Touko Performing suits Serena perfectly. ^^

    People who are criticizing and/or attacking people who are not fans about the idea of the next games being in Kanto. Just SHUT UP and let us have our views, just as we're letting you have yours!!!

    Yellow version not being remade for Gameboy Advance. That really irritated me when I first learned of Fire Red and Leaf Green. Also, Emerald not being remade for 3ds, I'm sure many of us would have preferred facing off against Team Magma and Team Aqua in one game instead of two...

    Kalos being shorted overall really grinds my gears since Zygarde got the short end of the stick more than any other Mascot counterpart...

    I’m annoyed with how hard it was to even get a Feebas without trading with someone who had one pre ORAS. I only found its random location once inn the GBA games and once in Platinum. What else annoyed me was how pre ORAS it could get full from eating Pokeblocks and Poffiins before the Beauty stat was maxed out.

    And yet it still annoyed me that Feebas became a trade evolution in Black and White because Contests got removed.

    And yet they made it WORSE in the Gen IV games. Not only does the location change per day, but there's now a limit on how much you can feed it. You better hope and pray that it's of a beauty-favoring nature

    If I recall correctly there was also a feeding limit in RSE

    Fans that no longer care about game quality and just demands new games. Despite multiple generations and hundreds of pokemon they'd rather add fuel to the fire to GF's greed. No end game content is fine if we have mini games to replace them. Or just expect no end game at all, and let the games collect dust after the main story.

    I remember trying to max out stats but my Pokemon refusing to eat more... so frustrating, it made me give up completely on Pokemon Contests.

    I remember there was no limit in ORAS so you could just feed your Pokémon as many Pokéblocks as you want without having your Pokémon refuse to eat more Pokéblocks and that was probably why I was more committed to Contests in ORAS than RSE as well as the extra requirement that the player had to beat Lisia to get the Lucarionite. But I wished that the requirements for getting the Garchompite and the Lucarionite were swapped in ORAS because it was way easier to capture 1000 flags for the Platinum Rank and I also personally found that Mega Lucario is better in competitive than Mega Garchomp.

    Yeah, I love Mega Garchomp but that drop in Speed in DEADLY!!!

    Hardest Pokemon to get for me was Porygon Z!

    I'm currently playing red fire. I'm actually enjoying it, but oh man these remakes have huge flaws. They really shouldn't have cut off gen 2 and 3 pokemon to post game. Also the gym leaders have awful teams. Koga's team is pathetic.

    When a Pokemon's shiny is basically the same as it's usual coloration.

    Also: When they make a current Gen's Pokemon only available AFTER the main game. I recently re-played Silver and was once again annoyed I couldn't get Houndour or Sneasel until after the main part of the game in Johto.
