    Default Pokemon You Objectively Know Are Good, But...

    I started a thread about how, although I know the Dragon-type is the best type objectively I just don't like it.

    What about individual Pokemon? Are there some Pokemon you know are great, but you just can't bring yourself to use them for whatever reason? (Excluding legendaries, since many people think using them is cheap)

    Okay, so...
    I know Conkledurr is an outstanding Fighting-type but I just can't use it. It looks soooooooo stupid -.-
    Golurk (I just don't like it)
    Claydoll (Same as Golurk; just don't like it)
    Magnezone (I hate magnemite and all of its evolutionary relatives)
    Metagross (An ex used it. Transfer of dislike)
    Rhyperior (Not a awesome as Rhydon)
    Shiftry (Dafuq is that thing?)
    Whimsicott (Michael Bolton, anyone?)
    Ferrothorn (It creeps me out)
    Infernape (I hate monkeys)
    Bronzong (It's supposed to be a bell. It does not appear to be a very good bell. But its cry is awesome, I will give it that)
    Amoonguss (Foonguss=cute Amoonguss=serial rapist)
    Cofagrigus (Really, Pokemon? Really?)
    Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan/Hitmontop (Just not a fan)
    Cryagonal (I WILL EAT YOUR SOUL AND THE SOULS OF ALL UNBORN BABIES!!! Seriously, if they were going to make it THAT freaky looking it should have been part ghost)
    Gliscor (No.)

    I know plenty of Pokémon are objectively good but I just never get around to using them. For instance, the only place I've ever used Excadrill, Lilligant, and Volcarona are in Conquest.

    Excadrill is pretty good. Great if you use him right, okay even if you don't.
    I love Volcanrona. I wish you didn't get Larvesta/Volcanrona so late in the game.

    I understand Volcarona being able to be caught late in the game. It's too strong.

    I know Flygon is an excellent Pokémon, but I hate it. I refuse to use it. Plus, Vibrava is so freaking useless.

    I don't think Flygon is very good at all. I had one once. It was terrible. Most useless Pokemon I've ever had of either type.

    Scrafty: I have a bitter hatred for gangsters (trust me, I live in a place full of them)
    Lilligant: Its movepool is extremely lacking
    Excadrill: It's banned in competitive battles
    Dragonite: It has a derpy design
    Salamence: There's no way for me to get it easily in the current games outside of Gen III
    Bronzong: Its design doesn't appeal to me much
    Magnezone: Its movepool is shallow and doesn't have a fascinating design
    Whismicott: Stalling isn't my thing
    Blaziken: It's banned in competitive battles
    Venusaur: Requires DW ability and Droughtales to be good
    Ninetales: It'll screw up my Water Pokemon
    Volcarona: It's not my favorite
    Jellicent: It's not my favorite
    Celebi: It's not my favorite
    Slaking: Traunt
    Archeops: Defeatist
    Forretress: Its design isn't as appealing as Scizor, Escaliver, Durant, and Genesect
    Jolteon: It's not my favorite
    Vaporeon: It's not my favorite

    Blaziken is still banned.

    Annyway, somehow I hate using Conkelldurr but I also hate being against it (same with Machamp).
    PM me and I'll rate your team.

    I never had that problem. Then again, my definition of a "good Pokemon" is way different then every one else's definition. And that's all I'm going to say because if I don't stop here I'm going to rant.
    Computer: There's an e-mail message! ... The 3 legendary bird POKéMON are ARTICUNO, ZAPDOS, and MOLTRES. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to CERULEAN.
    From: POKéMON RESEARCH TEAM.
    That couldn't have ended well.

    I can only think of two at the moment:
    Salamence - because I've always felt it was a poorly designed Dragonite ripoff with better stats (I'm glad this gen screwed it over by giving Dragonite Multiscale)
    Espeon - I don't like both it's design and general role and tend to underestimate it as an attacker.

    Dragonite. He's just an ugly stupid Barney dragon, I don't care how good he is in battle. D8 How could they give Dragonair such a hideous evolution? /shallowness
    Silverwynde likes this.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Oh my I forgot to mention Scrafty. I hate that thing so freaking much I have a Pokemon with at least one flying type move just to over-murder the shit out of it every time I see one. And that animation with the mouth. What are you, chewing gum you stupid-looking cunt?
