This Pokemon is a master of having too many projects at the same time. Also, Pikablu.
Well, Haxorus is a good candidate for me. In my dual type Water/Fire run of White that I did at the beginning of this year, I'd already lost my Darmanitan against a random trainer in Opelucid Gym, and was thus battling Iris with a team of five mons, those being Samurott, Simisear, Seismitoad, Jellicent and Basculin. I already didn't have anything super effective against Dragon types with that team comp, but then Iris' ace Haxorus came in and the whole battle went to hell. It set up with Dragon Dance while tanking hit after hit and getting periodically healed by Iris, and then proceeded to sweep my entire team.

That was the first and only time so far that I've ever wiped in a Nuzlocke. I still had just enough encounters left to rebuild into a decent team, coming up with specific countermeasures for the Iris rematch on the way, but as if to add insult to injury, her Haxorus then proceeded to also murder my second Darmanitan in cold blood before finally getting taken down by another Basculin.

So yeah, screw Haxorus.

It digs deep into the ground to hide from predators. At night it emerges to eat berries.

Well, her Pokédex No. is #274, which is Nuzleaf. Could anything be more hilariously fitting for this forum?
If pokemon were real, I would go out of my way to shatter every single wild Solrock I came across. They've killed two of my pokemon in B2W2 because that game thinks it's fair to have a ridiculous level spike when you get to Giant Chasm so that suddenly all the wild pokemon are the same level as your pokemon and if you fail to run from a Solrock it will shank all your Flying and Ice-type pokemon with Rock Slide!!! :)))

Rattata and Raticate, especially Alolan ones pretty much the bane of my Nuzlocke...STAB Pursuit when switching just HURTS and it also responsible for killing my Jellicent back then in Ultra Moon.

And don't get me start with any mons carrying Counter,Mirror coat, and Destiny bond...

Magnemite in BW2. I got one as my catch in that Virbank place, and at first I thought it was great because it had Sonic Boom and I could take on Roxie with it.

Well, guess what? Magnet Pull is horrible, especially when it makes you attract other Magnemite that also have Sonic Boom AND Supersonic. My Magnemite got confused, hit itself in its confusion, and got itself squarely on 20 HP. Anyone want to guess what happened next?

So far, I’m pretty underwhelmed by Ninjask. In an X run I did last year I caught a Nincada, and while it was surprisingly useful during the Nincada stage, it was complete ass as a Ninjask. It may have good speed but it’s seemingly useful attack was offset by it’s godawful movepool and it was still monstrously frail. I didn’t have any fun using it at any stage. I eventually sacked it off to a Sigilyph because at THAT moment I forgot to bring a Dark mon.

I tried using one again, specifically hoping it would improve my opinion on it. Needless to say, same thing, no moves, the only good thing it had was Screech, which even missed quite a bit, ended up ditching it because it just wasn’t for me.
