Things that grind your gears!

SOS would be better if you just a way to decrease the chance of it being triggered like having a Pokémon with Intimate in the first slot or something like that.
Status conditions prevent them from calling. Just hit them with poison or paralysis or something

I hate how whenever you battling an NPC and they Paralyze or Confuse your Pokémon, you can never attack because of the Status but when you do the same, their Pokémon attacks constantly.
I remember in the last rival fight in Stadium, I had Pokémon Yellow, so Blue had Jolteon. His Alakazam used Thunder Wave... and it somehow managed to paralyze my Pokémon SIX TIMES IN A ROW... and Alakazam used Seismic Toss on me until my Pokémon fainted. If anything, I'd like for status effects to be temporary in every sense of the word, like being able to shake Paralyze, Burn, Freeze and Poison like the Sleep status wears off.

Another thing that grind my gears: Am I the only one who... kinda gets irritated when a dual type combination series... doesn't include Grass, Fire, Water and/or Electric? I dunno, it feels almost obsessive that the Fairy type doesn't have Fire, Fighting doesn't have Electric and so on XD It's like... "FILL THE GAP ALREADY" :p

Actually, Water is one of only þree types to have been mixed wiþ all oþers! Psychic and Flying also have þis trait.

Huh... the more you know ^_^
  • Water/Fire (Volcanion) is overdue for a non-Legendary/non-Mythical rep though :p
  • About Psychic:
    • Psychic/Dragon (Latias, Latios, Ultra Necrozma) and Psychic/Ghost (Hoopa, Lunala, Calyrex) need regular 'mon.
    • Psychic/Grass needs another regular 'mon aisde from Exeggutor; Celebi and Calyrex are the others.
    • Psychic/Fire could use another regular 'mon aside from Delphox and Zen Mode Darmanitan.
  • About Flying:
    • Electric/Flying needs another bird-like regular 'mon aside from Zapdos (Legendary) and Oricorio (specific move, limited moveset), and by bird-like, I mean not like Elmoga, Rotom and Thundurus.
    • Grass/Flying needs another bird-like regular 'mon aside from Rowlet and Datrix, as well as Jumpluff, Tropius and Shaymin
    • Fairy/Flying needs a bird-like regular 'mon, because Togetic and Togekiss.
Like I said, being obsessive XDD

Nothing grinds my gears more than people you set up trades with for a long time finally have a free day and the Pokemon that they're trading is called, "machamps.com"

And then their response is, "it's the Pokemon, what more do you want?"

In short; I hate trading with people. It's always a gamble. Not here as much, but still.

I hate that too. It got to be very annoying.

Pokemon Go really annoys me with the current region researches. Some of the mission mons pratically don't spawn at all unless you live in the center of the city with lots of PokéStops.

I've noticed that whenever I get lucky enough to Freeze an opponent, they naturally thaw out on their next turn 9 times out of 10, whereas my Pokemon stay Frozen for several turns every time they get that afflicted with that status condition. It's asinine.

On an unrelated note, I always thought it was vexing that Po Town never gets fixed up and reinstated as a normal community, not even in the post-game in US/UM.

Best way I can describe the older games rng in terms of status conditions, is that the game favors the house, in this case, other trainers, gym trainers, the Elite 4.

This is kinda off-topic, but I've gotten a couple of shiny Ultra Beasts over Wonder Trade. They were both nicknamed Machamps.com. Probably the same guy

The Eon Ticket distribution was super annoying in the old games. You basically had to pay for the e-Reader thing and also buy a certain issue of Nintendo Power to get the physical ticket and then scan it.

Also when ORAS came out the Eon Ticket was given out to only a few players at first and they had to pass it out to others using StreetPass but if you lived in a big country the chances of getting one that way were so slim it wasn't worth the time.

I actually got super lucky and got the Eon Ticket from waiting in the airport to go to Taiwan. I then tried to pass it off by using Street Pass at places like McDonald’s when I could. I still have the info on my 3DS.

Regarding the recent announcement;

"The Pokémon Company have announced a new ban wave is coming to Pokémon Sword & Shield and Pokémon HOME. In their notice, they make mention of how some players are using altered data and others are causing issues impairing the function of games or apps for others. Due to this, a new ban wave is to start for players who have been modifying their save data
Players hit by these bans will be restricted from online play in Sword & Shield, can't use trading features or can no longer use Pokémon HOME. This follows on from the agreement in the Terms of Service prohibiting save modification. TPC says that bans can be temporary or permanent and no refunds will be issued. These measures will also be taken regularly in the future and more measures imposed if necessary."

I doubt there will be much impact. Those Pokemon are still going to be around. But still. Might encourage some paranoid players to actually get rid of them.
