    The fact that we get barely 1 news about new Pokemon in Swsh per month. The games r released in 2 months and we only 19 Pokemon were revealed

    Hatching a shiny pokemon way too early while preparing to breed for competitive shiny pokemon. (I got a shiny Bagon in like 5 eggs before I even got the right natures...)

    Alright, who thought it'd be a good idea to give Geodude Self-Destruct the earliest you encounter it in Alola? And how do they expect any sane man to find Galvanize Geodude because of that?! Unless the ability is insanely good like Wonder Guard you don't do that!

    Breed with HA Kanto Geodude in Alola, if you don't use Everstone on the Geodude it hatches in Alolan form.

    The Ultra Space Wilds in USUM. Minigames are fine, but to slog through this minigame to have a CHANCE of encountering the legendary that you're looking for is a pain (especially if you're trying to get a competitive team ready).

    Make gen-specific legendaries part of the story line/post game. Make previous gen legendaries unlocked by some other mechanic of pokemon (for example: For Kyogre to appear somewhere in USUM as catchable, you would first have to register 200 water type pokemon to your pokedex)

    Furthermore, why can't we have some kind of battle point expensive item that causes a legendary to reappear? Like okay, you caught your Modest Kyogre, but now you want a Timid one so can experiment with other team builds. Trading for anything decent is a game of roulette and a pain (or you have to resort to the services of hack/genners) and unlike the handicapped Ability Capsule, there is no way to change nature. Create a "Kyogre summon event" item that costs 1,000 BP. Heck, it can cost more, but it gives trainers the opportunity to create competitive teams in their own copies of the game (and Pokemon wants to stop cheating/hacking right?)

    The fact that Im more into Pokemon Masters now than I am for Swsh.... I wanna find out who's responsible for their marketing.

    The lack of a mass release option is really frustrating. I hate having to release several full boxes of Pokémon because it wastes so much time.

    Huh? Isn't Mass Release a thing in SM?

    I don’t think so. I think there’s Mass Select/Move, but not Mass Release.

    The countdown timer on Pokemon Go when you are waiting to star a raid. When it's a 1 star raid you might do it solo but you still have to wait for far longer than the battle takes.

    GO is one of the most innovative things that has happened to the pokemon franchise in recent years, yet it gets a lot of (undeserved imo) bashing.

    That the new UK Pokemon centre is only temporary. (And that pokemon centers in general don't exist outside of Japan and the US not even in website form )

    That shiny Castform doesn't affect the appearance of it's weather forms.

    I presumed there'd be some sort of fossil park in USUM after the hint in SM but no... : (

    Yeah you should be allowed to skip the timer for 1 or 2 stars raids.

    The lack of strong, inspiring, feminine characters' presence in the anime for battles. Nowadays, they cater for audience or eaten alive in DeviantArt.

    How we can't fly directly from say Violet City in HGSS to Vermilion City or any of the other major Kanto cities. We have to Fly to the Pokemon League gate area or the Indigo Plateau first, then to a Kanto city. It's so frustrating and senseless.

    I hate that the Kalos starters didn't get anything special going for them other than Ash-Greninja. It felt kind of insulting that they didn't get megas in the region that introduced megas.

    This annoys me as well and most of the time I was always afraid to admit it but not anymore. But the fact ONLY Greninja got something special was the most annoying part. The starter favourtism in Gen 6 was really obvious and I personally hated it, to the point where I felt like they made it so Froakie was the only Kalos starter that mattered and that picking Chespin or Fennekin was a waste of time, which upset me because I really like those two. They really should've given something to Chesnaught and Delphox too IMO if Greninja was allowed to have something special.

    Heck, Ash Greninja itself grinds my gears. Don't get me started on this "Bond Phenomenon" that didn't need to exist. It's only purpose was a cop out for Ash to not have a Mega Evolution in the anime and nothing more.

    Battle Bond as a whole is annoying when they introduced it outside of the anime. I can tolerate it in the games, but in PokeSpe, it just gets a weird mention on an info page and it's enough to make me dislike it.

    The name Ash-Greninja was something I never liked. I actually like using it but its name could be so much more interesting.
