Unpopular Pokemon opinions V2 (READ FIRST POST)

The XY/XYZ series is overrated and is just as bad as the BW and Journeys series in the anime imo.

A good chunk of the Pokemon fandom will denigrate a game if Charizard is in it, but will also do the same thing if there isn't a new Eeveelution. Both are overrated and both are constantly stuffed down our throats, but why is only one generally seen as a problem or crutch for the game?

People denigrate Eevee but not the Eeveelutions. That’s why people are still asking when Chloe’s Eevee is going to evolve.

Because we're sick of Eevee. The Eeveelutions made Eevee and they seem to have forgotten that

I wish they hadn’t abandoned the original story, where Pokemon were mysteriously appearing all the time.

Yes. People always complain about these moves when used against them. People did that all the time back when I played on Pokémon NetBattle, and I recently won a Discord Pokémon tournament in which my final opponent complained about my use of Horn Drill Dragonite against him.

I don’t really care about competitive stuff but I’ve got to say Stealth Rock is way more over centralising than anything else that people claim should be banned or has been banned in the past. Yes Mega Rayquaza is ridiculously powerful but not only must every single team have a Stealth Rock user but they must also have multiple ways to counter it.

That’s it, you’ll never see me make a post about competitive again

I'm actually starting to appreciate the cut Pokedex. In previous gens, Pokemon would be transfer only (Gens 2, 5, 7), or split between versions (Gens 3, 4, and 6). The reason I appreciate it is because it is no longer practical to really put all of them in the game prior to post game since Gen 7 has already that issue. On top of that, I can learn to appreciate other Pokemon while still using some of my favorites. My one "complaint" comes from the fact that not every Pokemon is available on Switch Pokemon games, but we'll see what Scarlet/Violet do about that. (Also because you can't transfer Pokemon into Let's Go besides Go, certain Alolan forms cannot rest in your Switch games.)

This. I have three shiny Alolan Geodude I got via the GTS on Home, and I can't evolve them because the Geodude and Grimer lines were absent from the Isle of Armor gifts the Diglett guy gives out.

Normal Samurott is also not present since Legends: Arceus doesn't have a normal form for each Hisuian one.

OR/AS were bloody awful remakes. This wouldn't have been such an unpopular opinion when the games came out since most people were disappointed about the lack of the BF but now the consensus seems to be that they were still good games.

Well I disagree. I can't even remember the last time I actually played them, they're just that boring to me.

The last time I played the ORAS games was a couple years ago and only because I wanted to check to see if the games still worked because I had read somewhere that some ORAS carts had stopped working properly.

Other than that I don't play those games anymore and haven't done anything important in them since like 2016. SM totally overshadowed them in my opinion. :[

I actually like not having the National Dex in the games. Gives me less stress while catching Pokémon and trying to remember where each one can be found.
