    I don't know if I actively hate any Pokemon or character, but I do get tired of seeing the same Pokemon all over just because it looks cool or has been marketed as popular. Zorua and Zoroark are the ones that annoy me the most, I think. Also Victini. I don't understand what is so great about Victini, honestly.

    And any fans that could be classified as "rabid" irk me, regardless of who they're a fan of (though Riley and other "pretty boys" come to mind).

    Have I ever hated a character or Pokemon because of their fans? Never. Why? Because it's not the character's or Pokemon's fault and it doesn't affect me negatively in anyway. If the fans of them like them and I don't, I don't really see the reason why I should hate. Sure the fans might be obnoxious jerks that insult others for not being fans of what they are a fan of, but again, it's not the character's or Pokemon's fault. I may not be a fan of say, Gyarados, but then I don't tell its fans that they suck for liking it. If I do that, then I'll be as bad and obnoxious as the bad fans that over hype it. I wouldn't want to ruin the fun of anybody, even of the bad fans. But then they shouldn't ruin the fun of other fans too. "I don't like X, so if they like Y, I won't like Y" is dumb logic in my eyes.

    Not all the fans of something are bad. Heck, there are good fans who are ashamed of being a fan of something just because of the bad fans. Sadly, the good fans are then stereotyped with the bad fans. "You're a fan of X? If so, you're a *insert insults* as the fans of X!" is also dumb logic. I also don't like getting into debates with the bad fans because it would be filled with petty insults. Don't get me wrong, I love debating! But when it's all immature and uncivil I tend to quickly leave. I'm not saying that I've never been immature and uncivil in a debate, but when I am it would be when I'm most annoyed, always trying to not get my emotions take control of me. It's not easy for everybody to hold their emotions and not do anything stupid. Which is the case with the bad fans.

    If they never accept the fact that there will always be others who will think negatively of what they(the fans) think so positively of, then they'll never mature as people. There are a lot of different cases to this. It could be that the fans think that others are thinking immaturely, causing an endless amount of endless debates. I suggest that people try to not let the bad fans get to you by trying harder to ignore them. If there is any continuous flame baiting with no hope of calming down and getting into an agreement, reporting it to a moderator is the best thing to do.

    I don't really like Dawn, because whenever I try to look up Paul fics it seems to be that 9/10 Paul fics are Paul/Dawn. I don't ship, I don't want to read and I really don't want to shift through all those fics to find a fic that doesn't involve that pairing. I wish that ff.net had an option to exclude characters when searching for fics. >_<

    I really don't like Pikachu, Piplup and Oshawatt.

    How some people in fandom portray Cynthia has turned me off her, and a certain meme on a certain site that infested the board of Bianca doing, ugh, it was just shoved down everyone's throats, it got boring quick, but it was constantly posted...I still like N, and in the hands of a capable writer, he has the potential to be an excellent character, but I loath how a lot of fic writers portray him, what I hate even more is when he's written as being the creepy man child that he is, as well as in some fics being abusive and the female PC is repulsed, but them finds him all ~romantic~ and ~sexy~, what's worse the author seems to portray this as a positive thing. Headdesk.

    I came really, really close to hating Silver because of all his rabid fangirls.

    Thankfully, I realized that Silver was way too cool to be dragged down by his fans.

    Misty and Charizard. The former, I never really liked and the fans made me hate her full time. The latter, I was indifferent to. Its a good Pokemon ingame but I never saw the badass aspect of it. Its way too generic for me. But the fans made me hate it.

    Mudkip. Well not really, he's cute and all but... Uh. I'm tired of seeing him everywhere.

    Also used to really dislike Lucario because of its fanbase and all the furry porn, ugh. After seeing the movie though I came to love him. Much.

    Firstly, Charizard. You may have heard of the noobs who give it Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Fire Spin and Ember, and then expecting it to do well competitively. That's sort of ruined Charizard for me, and a lot of other people.

    Also, Mudkip. Remember that poll they held last year, to release a certain pre-Gen V Pokemon of your choice with their DW ability? Well, lots of people (me included) voted for Ditto, whose ability is absolutely brilliant, and it was doing OK at second, but then Mudkip overtook it right at the end. And then Arceus won, which was given out about a million times beforehand.

    This, this, and this.

    Pikachu and Charizard have irritated me since day one and their fans haven't helped. I actually wouldn't mind never seeing either one again, that's how sick I am of them. And honestly, I don't want to see much of anything from the first two Gens, either--the rabid nostalgic fanbase has completely ruined those games for me. If I see one more post on Pokememes saying that the Fifth Gen sucks, I will blow a very large gasket.

    I'm also not a huge fan of Mudkip either and it's all thanks to that stupid meme. -_-;

    This.

    I don't really hate Pikachu, but Charizard, sure I do, I hate Fire types and their fans just keep annoying me saying "LAY OFF THE ICE TYPES, OBEY FIRE TYPES!" Sweet jesus, I don't wanna go through this again.

    I always hated Kanto cause of it's fans, I'm sick of this freaking nostalgic fanbase going all like "WHO NEEDS JOHTO WHEN YOU HAVE KANTO?" God.

    Charizard is the only, and the only reason I hate Kanto.
