I'm getting sick of running into the regional birds. Pidove/Tranquill and Starly/Staravia are getting on my last nerve. It's like they keep stalking me because most of the time I run into one with the same gender and level as the previous one.

Anything with Selfdestruct or Explosion.
Voltorbs are especially annoying since they're fast enough to prevent escape and/or explode before you can kill them.

Zubat/Golbat are really annoying. They never go away, and Supersonic/Confuse Ray is just a pain.

Durants. Their durability makes them an annoying regular encounters in the wild.
Selfdestructing Gravelers are annoying, too.

I normally don't get annoyed, but I've noticed that Zubat are 3 times as likely to appear in RSE as they are anywhere else in caves.

And then exploding Pokemon. The only thing that scares me when I'm in the wild.

OMG, I can understand that. It always attacks with poison sting and for some reason my pokes ALWAYS gets poisoned...


I hate the usual Zubats, Golbats, Tentacools, Tentacruels, Wingulls, Pelippers....

Anything that is too common + doesn't let you flee + gives you status problems + doesn't give you enough exp... etc etc etc

Omg, you are SO right. Zubats, I hate with a passion... god, you waste SO much PP on them.

That is... until it's Crobat :3

I'd say Basculin in water, Geodude in caves, any random encounter in grass, and Audino in rustling grass when I was looking for Metagross.

I gotta go with tentacool, tentacruel, the latter especially if I'm low on repel and my team is low on energy. just truly a cruel pokemon to go against with a not so great team.

Pokémon with abilities which don't allow you to run or switch pokémon such as Shadow Tag and Arena Trap. These pokémon are Wynaut, Wobbuffet, Diglett, Dugtrio and Trapinch. Gothita, Gothorita, Gothitelle, Litwick, Lampent and Chandelure also have this ability but it is their hidden ability.

Roggenrola and Boldore.... I. Hate. Sturdy. It makes it so hard to defense EV train and level up in caves.
