As competitive Pokemon players play the game for several months, they learn certain skills such as team building and anticipation. Soon after entering the tournament, they also realized that they could identify tournament Pokémon costumes in "categories". These categories include terms such as "Physical Sweeper" and "Special Wall". However, once you've mastered the battle understanding, you'll find a few Pokémon that can only be categorized under the word "nasty hell". This post aims to showcase some of the worst Pokemon sets to ever enter a competitive battle, Pokemon that are guaranteed to have people tearing their hair out and gouging out their eyes when seen in team previews. Here are the "Top 10 Most Annoying Pokemon Sets" (in no particular order).
Whimsicott @ The Leftovers
EV: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 speeds
Bold and Natural (+Def, -Atk)
- Leech seeds
- stun spores/taunt
It's like Game Freak designed Whimsicott for this Smog article. They probably also designed Whimsicott to get people to smash their computer screens with kitchen utensils or rip their DS in half. The reason for this is that with the release of Pokemon Black and White came a new skill called "Prankster". Mischief prioritizes all non-destructive states or actions. Add to that an action pool full of status moves including Leech Seed, Stun Spore, Taunt, and Encore, among others, and you've got one of the most annoying Pokemon in the game. The SubSeed set is especially annoying because Whimsicott has a priority sub and leech seed, it can avoid direct damage from an opponent, stop an opponent's status that causes trials while draining the opponent's health and recovering health lost by the sub. Encore is probably the best move Whimsicott has made in his annoying resource arsenal, as it ironically turns every Pokemon he tries to build on Whimsicott into ready fodder for that slimy little cotton. This time +6 Dragonstone is a good duel. The final step really comes down to preference, as taunts prevent the Pokemon from stacking threats and boosting stats together, while stun spores weaken opponents, making it easier to continue "Underseeding". Whimsicott is not only irritating competitively, but also aesthetically. Seriously, Whimsicott has that smiling mug you want to kick. Or am I just being mean?
Ninjask (Chopstick Pass)
Ninja @ remnants
EV: 248 KM / 236 Def / 24 Spe
Bold and Natural (+Def, -Atk)
- Handing over the baton
- Sword Dance/Toxicity
While it's not as strong as it used to be in the OU meta, you should take proper precautions when you encounter one of these situations. Like Whimsicott, Ninjask's abilities are a real pain. First of all, Ninja is the second fastest Pokemon in the entire game. Thanks to his Speed Boost ability, which increases his speed by +1 at the end of each turn, Ninjask can become even faster, making it easy to quickly replace him. With a combination of support and protection, if your opponent doesn't have priority attacks, the ninja can easily amass a few boosts and then give them to a Pokémon that needs them. You never want to laugh at Rampardos again after Ninjask has done his thing, because Ninjask can turn slow, average Pokemon into menacing killing machines that can move between teams with relative ease. The last place depends on your taste. Sword Dance is good, so the chick is more threatening when you pass it; however, he is a bit greedy, which is hard to achieve without Ninjask's double. Toxic substances can also be used to weaken things installed on Ninjask or to destroy walls intended to destroy Ninjask.
Dragon fruit @ leftovers from leftovers
EV: 252KM / 4 Def / 252 Speed
Cautious Natural (+ SpD, -SpA)
- thunder wave
- dragon's tail
When people think of weird Pokemon, for many of them, Dragonite probably never comes to mind. This may be because Dragonite is known for using powerful offensive outfits such as Dragon Dance, Choice Band, and Rain Tank. However, Multiscale halves the damage Dragonite takes at full health, and Dragon Tail causes Dragonite to transform when dealing damage; Dragonite has the necessary tools to become a nasty Pokémon with the "ParaShuffler" suit. With multi-scale investments and max HP and SpD, Dragonite can set up banks for countless Pokemon and start using Thunder Wave to destroy opponents. From there, Dragonite can start attacking the opponent's team with Dragon's Tail and take down the opponent's Pokemon with Thunderwave from a safe support location. Dragonite replacements are also hard to break, especially with Multiscale intact, and Dragonite with water resistance can really take a toll on the very popular rain group that traverses OU. It's the unpredictability of the kit that makes it so dangerous, as Dragonite is capable of running many different kits, and often support kits are the last thing you want from a mighty dragon.
Heatran @ Remnants
Ability: Flash of Fire
EV: 244 KM / 44 SpD / 220 Spe
Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk)
- lava plume
While this group isn't as threatening as it used to be, possibly due to OU's Zhongyu's popularity and powerful fighting types, StormTran is still one of the most annoying Pokemon for good reason. Heatran is probably one of the few Pokemon that can effectively run on Torment, if not the only one! The reason for this is Heatran's strong typing ability, very few Pokemon have two moves that can hit Heatran very effectively. Since Torment won't make a Pokemon use the same move twice in a row, Heatran can render many Pokemon useless against it by making the most effective move against Heatran, allowing it to easily get a replacement. Torment also takes full control of the user who selects an item, forcing them to switch or fight. With protection, when your opponent can use any move, you can block Remnants while restoring them. The lava column is a great way to make sure Heatran isn't taunt bait, and the 30% chance to get burned just adds to the crab's lava troll factor (or whatever).
Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal
EV: 252 KM / 184 Def / 72 Spe
Figurine Nature (+Def, -SpA)
You know when you meet that bat, scorpion type, you're going to have a hard time. When you think of Toxic Stall, the first thing that probably comes to mind is Gliscor. With Poison, Guard, and Override, Gliscor can be very effective at stopping opponents and still dealing passive damage with Poison. With Gliscor's Poison Healing ability and the Poison Orb attached, Gliscor gains 12.5% Health at the end of each turn with Poison Heal active. This means that when traded and secured, Gliscor heals all HP lost as a result of the trade. When you're fighting a SubToxic Gliscor, it's kind of ironic because both the Gliscor and the opponent are poisoned, except the Gliscor gains a lot of HP and the opponent slowly loses it. Due to the sarcasm and toxic tricks that Gliscor causes, many players give up using it. The quake is imminent, so Gliscor is not a complete bait.
Geng Gui @ Leftovers
EV: 4 KM / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Shy Nature (+Esp, -Atk)
- ball of darkness
- focus burst
Even aesthetically, Gengar looks like an obnoxious Pokemon when you look at his evil grin and evil red eyes, and his SubDisable suit certainly lives up to its competitiveness. Through substitution and deactivation, Gengar can use his change to recognize an opponent's move and block status attempts. When Geng Gui's substitute is broken, Geng Gui can use a ban so that the opponent can no longer use a replacement breakout move. This can cause some issues for your opponents as they may not have an action to actually reach Gengar after the ban as Gengar has some distinct resistances and immunities and can reuse the changes in case an opponent changes or tries to use a move that causes status. . One thing's for sure, if you use the bench and defuse combo correctly, your opponents are sure to be furious if they show up in Pokémon Duel! Battle chat or not. Shadow Ball and Focus Blast have excellent neutral opacity, so Gengar is definitely not a victim of teasing. The interesting thing about Focus Blast is that Gengar is more of an annoyance to the user than to the opponent, as 70% accuracy often fails and is one of the main reasons fighters hit the quit button.
Breloom @ Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal
EV: 12 KM / 244 Atk / 252 Spe
Fortaleza Natural (+Atk, -SpA)
- focus hit
- seed bomb
Yeah I guess I don't need to explain this series because everyone has probably seen it already and I think everyone will agree with me when I say it's a series they love to wear but hate to see face to face with. Like Whimsicott , Game Freak seems to have deliberately given Breloom the tools to make it one of the most annoying Pokemon ever created. First of all, in my opinion, he has the most annoying move in the whole game: Spore. Spore is a 100% accurate dream move that, when combined with other refined focus strikes, makes Breloom a serious offensive threat. If Breloom is behind the bench, it can be a "good game" for your opponent, as Breloom can fire 150 base STABs of base movement stat 130 power. After the trade, if the suspension clause is not on, Breloom gets a free spore for something else and can continue a chain of spores, substitutes, and focus hits until your opponent runs out of Pokemon. Thanks to Poison Ball and Poison Healing, Breloom can continue benching throughout the game. Seed bombs are the last step of Breloom and basically replace STABs. While tech kits have gotten a lot of attention recently and are more effective in OUs, if there is one advantage of this kit over the tech kit, it's how annoying it is.
Blissey (hope for support)
Chansey (hope for support)
|Blissey @ Remnants|
Ability: Natural Healing
EV: 4 KM / 252 Def / 252 SpD
Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk)
- earthquake shock
|Chansey @ Eviolite|
Ability: Natural Healing
EV: 252 KM / 252 Def / 4 Spe
Bold and Natural (+Def, -Atk)
- earthquake shock
Chansey and Blissey play pretty much the same character, so they'll both be in that spot. This character (other than being a plump pink blob) is the best special wall in the game. Nearly all special strikers who lack a psychic hit are completely blocked by Blissey and Chansey. This is due to the huge HP and special defense. With a huge health pool, they can use the "wish" cheat to revive weakened teammates. They can also use Wish to maintain your health so that special sweepers can never get through, and Protection can help delay waiting turns so you can quickly recover from Wish. Seismic Toss deals a flat 100 damage to all non-Ghost-type Pokemon, and due to the blob's low aggressive stats, it's unfortunately the better attack move of the two. Toxic is excellent at stopping special attackers, especially when paired with Protect and Wish. Like Whimsicott, if Chansey and Blissey were real, I wouldn't mind throwing them out because they look so annoying!
Tentacruel @ Black Slime
Ability: Rain Disc
EV: 252 KM / 240 Def / 16 Spe
Bold and Natural (+Def, -Atk)
- quick rotation
While it's not the most popular Tentacruel set, it's still one of the most annoying and quite "brutal" sets if you know what I mean. This set works similarly to the Gliscor set in that Tentacruel uses poison to weaken the opponent and tries to stop them with replacements and the 12.5% regeneration that Black Sludge and Rain Dish bring in the rain. Facing this series can be quite unexpected as many opponents don't want poison in Tentacruel, and Pokemon that are usually placed in Tentacruel can have nasty surprises when they only have a few turns left. If anything, Scald would be on the "Most Annoying Moves of All Time" list as his 30% burn rate seems to be more like 80% and his onfire opponents are easy to counter. The quick turn is the last step. As any good competitive player knows, Rapid Spin removes the barrier to entry and is an essential move for almost any Pokémon team. Before Black and White, if you saw Tentacruel in a team preview, you probably wouldn't care too much. However, when you see one in the team preview now, you know you're fighting an uphill and annoying battle with his Rain Dish cheats.
Jirachi @ Leftovers
Ability: Silent Grace
EV: 252KM / 4 Def / 252 Speed
Cautious Natural (+ SpD, -SpA)
- Hidden rock/protection
- Iron head
- body hit
This collection is probably the most annoying of all the collections mentioned in this article. Seriously, Jirachi would be a completely different Pokemon without its ability, Serene Grace, which doubles the chance of a bonus move effect. With this ability, Kiraqi can use the moves Iron Head and Body Slam to create what competitive Pokemon players often refer to as "paraflinching". Serene Grace doubles the chance to stun Body Slam and flinch Iron Head, and Jirachi has a 60% chance to stun a Pokemon with Body Slam. When an opponent is paralyzed, Kiraqi can use Iron Head to make the opponent flinch. With a 60% chance of flinching and a 25% chance of paralyzing, Kiraqi can often get a lot of free spins on what people like to call "hax". Jirachi is probably responsible for 99% of OU losses due to the Iron Head and Body Slam combo. Well, maybe not 99% of the time, but this set is annoying anyway and I encourage you to try it. Hope for Kiraqi's solid recovery is great, and Stealth Rock is generally regarded as the best move in the game as it hits a lot of threatening OU Pokemon like Tornadus-T, Dragonite, and Volcarona. If you already have a Stealth Rock on another Pokemon, Protect is great for getting rid of pending Wish turns.
at the end
So you got it! The 10 Most Annoying Pokémon and Their Outfits! Some notable annoying Pokemon not mentioned are Sableye, who can use his Prankster ability and No Weakness to spread Burn with Will-O-Wisp and disrupt Set Sweeper and Hazard Setter with Taunt. The Harden Metapod is also very good, after a few Harden boosts it's impossible to break through its strong defenses (just kidding, never use a Metapod, it sucks).

The longest Pokémon game to date is the 2006 release, Diamond and Pearl, for the Nintendo DS. It clocks in at 40.5 hours, with 93 hours required to beat the main game plus extras, and 260 hours to complete. The Switch remakes are shorter, coming in at 26.5 hours.
Is there a Pokémon with 0 Weaknesses? ›
Eelektrik and its evolved form Eelektross are the only Pokémon with absolutely no weaknesses. There isn't even a Mythical or Legendary type Pokémon with this distinction. Electric Pokémon usually have a weakness to Ground moves, but since Eelektross has the Ability Levitate, the weakness no longer applies.
Although massive, Stakataka's speed stat is a measly 13, with a maximum speed stat of 137. Stakataka has an extraordinary defense stat at 384 and has powerful abilities that can do a lot of damage. Even with the slow speed, this Pokémon isn't falling in battle any time soon.
Before Sword & Shieldreleased, X & Y were the easiest Pokemon games by a wide margin. Despite being remakes of one of the harder Generations. Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, unfortunately, didn't fare much better, either.
