** Certain designs tend to get singled out as being "Uncreative" ("Uncreative" here being a code word for "I hate the design, this isn't a real Pokémon to me".) Of the Pokémon that get the most flack, ones based on fish (like Basculin or Lumineon) are regarded as "weak" (an impression left by Magikarp), Pokémon based on people (like Mr. Mime or Jynx) being "[[UncannyValley too creepy]]" and ones based [[AnimateInanimateObject animate objects]] (Like Vanillish or Klefki) for being "too weird".

At the same time though, not all Pokémon with these designs receive nearly enough hate: Sharpdeo, Lanturn, Alakazam, Machamp, Aegislash and Chandelure are all well regarded despite being based on fish, people or inanimate objects.

** It's a hot topic to discuss whether or not Crobat's existence [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap redeems the Zubat line]], or [[NeverLiveItDown is just as rotten as its predecessors]].

** The Neo Genesis Slowking in the English version, thanks to a mistranslation making its Pokemon Power much stronger than intended. "Mind Games" makes the opponent flip a coin to use any Trainer card, and if tails the effect fails and the card is placed on top of your opponent's deck. The Japanese text specified that the power only worked while Slowking was active, but this was left off the English card, which meant you could stack 4 Slowkings on your bench to reduce your opponent's chances of playing Trainers to 1/16, while also shutting down the opponent's draw 15/16ths of the time. The card was banned like Sneasel until errata fixed the Power.



** Pokémon Catcher… and Junk Arm. It's a wonder neither of those cards were banned.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Almost every set of games is vocally loved and hated by different parts of the fandom, with the divide usually being due to NostalgiaFilter or CasualCompetitiveConflict. The only games that are more or less unanimously liked are ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' and their remakes, and even they (especially the originals) catch some criticism from time to time, including HypeBacklash from being the most beloved games overall.
