A Definitive Ranking Of The 11 Most Annoying Pokémon

Pokemon Go has been out for a few weeks and everybody is playing it. We've all finally graduated to a point where we don't need to catch every pokemon. However, the game still provides us with plenty of the useless pokemon that very rarely appear at levels that are high enough to evolve into a decent pokemon. Often times these are the only pokemon that appear for us in many places while we're playing, and this gets really annoying, because we just don't need them anymore. Here are the pokemon I find annoying.

1. Zubat

Zubats are absolutely everywhere and they're honestly pretty hard to catch. Since they're flying, their distance is very deceptive. If I do bother trying to catch one, I usually also miss the first throw because they're so much farther away than they look. They're really just not very good, even when they do evolve into Golbats, though.

2. Weedle

Weedles are probably the worst pokemon. They're rarely very strong, they don't evolve very high, and they're really just everywhere. Once you have a Beedrill in your pokedex there just isn't much need for this little guy anymore.

3. Pidgey

Pidgies do have a redeeming quality, they're all over the place so they're easy to collect. And once you collect enough of them, they only take 12 candies to evolve so you can evolve a lot of them at once for a lot of extra XP to level up. However, like I said, they're all over the place. And they really don't reach high enough levels that ever make them worth it.

4. Caterpie

Caterpie is up there with Weedle, just a tiny pokemon that doesn't have any power and doesn't evovle into anything much better. After you cross off a Butterfree from your list, they're really just aren't of any use.

5. Spearow

Spearow is, of course, along the same lines as the others. All over the place, but just doesn't reach high enough levels where it evolves into anything decent. Sp�earow could be a cool pokemon, but if you can never get it above 1000CP, it's just not of much help in Pokemon Go.

6. Rattata

These. Are. Everywhere. I don't know of a single person that likes Rattatas or Raticates. Raticates are pretty ugly, they shake when they're sitting still, and just not very cool, even if you could get them to a high level. These guys might be about as common as pidgies, making them even more annoying.

7. Paras

Of course, Paras is in the same boat. Not a high level, doesn't evolve very high, and the evolution just isn't that cool. Plus, Paras and Parasect are just generally ugly pokemon. They're really not worth it, but like all of the annoying pokemon, they're one of the most common.

8. Venonat

Venonats aren't quite as bad. They're pretty common and I've reached a point where I'm done catching them because I have a decent level Venomoth, but when you're looking for something and this guy pops up instead, it gets pretty frustrating. They usually also come in low levels, though, so evolving to a powerful Venomoth is rare, and not worth the effort of catching 200 of these guys to find a decent one.

9. Charmander

Okay, Charmander isn't annoying in the same way the other ones are. Charmanders are annoying because they seem to be impossible to find. Yeah, I know none of the starters are common, but I've seen a couple of Bublasaurs and Squirtles in the wild, I've only seen one Charmander. And, when Charmander is the pokemon you chose to start with and it's completely useless because you never find more, it's annoying.

10. Magikarp

Trust me, I'd appreciate an abundance of Magikarps if I could find any, but it just takes so many to evolve into a Gyarados and they're just so useless until they evolve.

11. Dragonite

Dragonites are a different kind of annoying as well. It's so hard to find a super high level one in the wild, hard to find any Dratini to evolve it, and just hard to find one, period. So ,I know it's supposed to be rare, but it just seems impossible to find any of use.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
