Day 2 - Your least favourite Pokémon

Boldore. Before BW, I couldn't imagine disliking a Pokémon any worse than I did Graveler. (Golbat's more annoying to deal with, but I can put up with it because at least it turns into something cool.) Then along comes this thing, which is not only even uglier - look at it! - but is in basically every single cave purely because they couldn't use Graveler, and unlike Graveler it's guaranteed to have the newly-buffed fuck-your-flawlessly-bred-perfectly-EVed-mon-I'm-a-goddamn-Boldore ability Sturdy. For that matter, you can't even EV train off them as well as you could using Graveler... So you kill it, soaking up the useless EVs, wasting twice as much PP as you need to because of course the trainers and various branching paths in the caves weren't doing a good enough job of that, take three more steps, and oh hi again how've you been? I'M JUST TRYING TO CATCH A HALF-DECENT JOLTIK. I DON'T NEED THIS.

Dishonorable mentions: The Tympole line. Replace "cave" with "pond" and it's more or less the same situation. They don't have Sturdy, which is nice... just a 50% chance of outspeeding and launching a rain-powered Water move at you before dying in one hit. And they're also uglier, which is obviously the most important detail.
