With over 800 Pokémon, it can be really hard to keep track of them all. What’s a Pokémon that you struggle to remember?

This guy :skrelp:

I can only remember its evolutions name because I used to pronounce it Drag-a-lag, but little dude? I constantly forget its name. I don't think anybody in the game has one you can battle, or if they do I don't remember it at all. You can only see it if you go out of your way to catch it, basically. And even then I don't pronounce it right.......skrp? skelp? skurelup? s...skrp..............................

I always forget about Spinda. Not sure why, but I do. Maybe because it's just another normal type and has no redeeming qualities. I mean, it doesn't even evolve so it's not worth remembering.

If you gave me the name of just anything else I could tell you what generation it's from and most likely its type(s), but after the monsters obtainable in gen 7 through ordinary means (i.e. not legends or ubs) I'm completely lost.

I didn't ever think I'd ever say this but in gen 8 I may reach the point of "there are just too many damned pokémon."

A lot of the Pokemon which are considered 'forgettable' I can remember since they're so well known for being forgettable. Looking through the list of Pokemon from gen 1-6 there wasn't a Pokemon that I couldn't remember well.

But I never got into SuMo at all so I barely know any Pokemon from that generation, especially all those ultra beasts and Pokemon with long and complicated names.. it's really overwhealming. Can't name any Pokemon from gen 7 besides the starters and a few Pokemon which appear frequently in the game/anime.

For me it would have to be Elgyem
and Beheeyem
. They haven't been in very many games and I honestly can't remember a single trainer in Unova who uses either one of these two. You know you're forgettable when not even the Psychic type Elite Four of your own region uses you. ^^;;

Barboach :barboach: and Whiscash :whiscash:. I hadn't seen these Pokemon in like forever until I recently considered doing a Ground Monotype in one of the Gen 3 Hoenn games.
@Kaori: you're right about Elgyem and Beheeyem as well. Kinda sad that they don't get a bit more love, they're pretty cool.

Qwilfish is defs the Pokemon I tend to forget exist.

Also the Ultra Beasts in general with the exception of Poipole (because it is cute). So yeah...

I once forgot Glalie's name even though I knew what it looked like.

Also I don't necessarily forget them, but I tend to mistake Snivy and Oshawott as gen 6 starters.

Bergmite. :bergmite: It shows up so late and infrequently in X&Y, and didn't really have an episode of the anime. Which is sad because I really like it when I remember it exists.

Heatmor and Durant are 2 Pokemon I frequently forget exist. I generally like Gen 5 Pokemon, but these two appear so rarely that I forget about them. Clampearl and its evolutions I hardly remember exist either.

Maractus. It's not good competitively. It's not even good ingame. It doesn't evolve from or into anything. It doesn't have any notable trivia other than its own obscurity. In its debut generation, Gen V, it is used by only 6 trainers, and I'm pretty sure all are optional (one is Cilan in B2W2, however, which is something). It is in only one location that you don't spend much time in at 10% encounter rate in that generation. Only one trainer uses it in all of Gen 6 and it is an optional battle in the Mauville Food Court, and the only way to get it natively in Gen VI is Friend Safari and Mirage Spots which have tons of more interesting Pokemon. It is entirely absent from Gen VII shy of transfer. And it is so forgettable nobody in this thread has even mentioned it yet. I rest my case.

So there's a lot of pokemon now. Some would argue too many. What I want to know is which pokemon do you always forget? For me it would be the later generation generic fish pokemon like Alomomola.

@Zedark I went ahead and merged your thread into this one because it discusses the same topic.

Binacle and Barbaracle are rather forgettable to me, and they haven’t been mentioned yet in this thread. Durant and Heatmor are also dishonorable mentions.
