Hello, I'm Overrated by Galahawk Hello, I'm Overrated by Galahawk

Pet peeve ranting time!
If you viewed this page or favorited this stamp because you LIKE Umbreon, you're in the wrong place.

As many of you know, I'm an avid Pokemon player, and as such, play the games, browse fanart and frequent Pokemon related forums. However, no matter where the fuck it is that I go, I can't go even one page without seeing a million fucking Umbreons. They're freaking everywhere. RPs, on peoples' WiFi teams, or just plastered all over their avatar and signature. This brings me to my rant.
What, the FUCK, is so great about this thing? Everyone seems to love it so much but personally, I see it as another unspecial overrated Pokemon, much like what I think of Riolu and Lucario. No matter how I look at it I never saw what was so special about it. So it's a dark type, whoop, there are other dark types. So it's OMG MYSTERIOUS. Big whoop, there's other OMG MYSTERIOUS Pokemon. So it has glowing body parts, whoop, there's other Pokemon with glowing body parts.
Even in terms of in-game or Wifi battling, tiers considered or not, this thing sucks. Outside the UU tier there's so many things that can kill it without a second thought. Hell, even IN the UU tier there's a lot of things that can destroy it. All it takes is a good bug or fighting move and it's dead. All it takes is a good steel type and it's dead. All it takes is another, better dark type and it's dead. All it takes is a little strategy and it's dead.
And oh god, don't get me started on how sick I am of seeing Umbreon Pokesonas fucking everywhere. Especially shiny Umbreons. The point of shinies in the games is that they're rare, and yet there's so many fucking shiny Umbreon sonas. What's even funnier is peoples' ever so desperate measures to make them "original." Multicolored rings are not original. Different markings than usual are not original. For Christ's sake people, there's more Pokemon in existence than this fucking thing. Give THEM a chance.

To the People who like Umbreon: This stamp is not directed at you, 'nor is it directed at any specific Pokesona or person out there. This is just my way of FINALLY getting out what I think of this goddamn thing.
EDIT: Also, I forgot to say. I don't hate Umbreon, I just hate seeing it everywhere when there are much better Pokemon out there being neglected.

EDIT2: I'm no longer requiring people to say derp since I'm honestly surprised no Umbreon fantards have come here to mindlessly attack me.
<- SHINY VERSION!

I think the reason no Umbreon Fanboys have mindlessly attacked you is that they DON'T CARE. They do what they want, and none of your ranting's going to do anything about it.

Here's a fun fact: None of them have to convince you to like Umbreon. Instead, YOU have to convince THEM to give other Pokemon a try. And frankly, you're doing a shitty job about it.

Also, editing the description to say you don't hate Umbreon just comes off as backpedaling.

It is overrated. Which makes me love my own Pokemon more such as Lugia, Tyrunt, Grovyle, Charizard and Samurott.

495 Snivy I'm not an Umbreon and I'm still cool. U MAD, UMBREON? (Don't even think about it, Absol.)

It's a Dark-type. BIG WHOOP
It glows in the dark. RARE
It's shaped like a dog. WOW

Seriously, search "pancham oc" and look at the number of the results.
Then search "umbreon oc" or "absol oc". See what I mean?

Tell me, what's all the hype over Dark-types? There are much better types out there. Even my little brother agrees. He had a Level 1 Absol in ORAS. He got a Mewtwo for it. See what I mean?

What a coincidence, you mentioned pancham oc and i was actually thinking of making a pancham oc.
I guess that's reassurance that a pancham oc would be very original.

Hell, now looking at this, I feel very bad, since the only idea I have for a PMD themed RP that me and Homerboy4 would do was this team that consisted of a Luxray and Absol and some other pokemon with bullet proof vests and the other stuff like that.

Let Umbreon Fans be FANS.
I know that they are overrated, but I still don't care, who do you have to fight just for likes and dislikes? That is what war is made of...
I still don't understand it... but since you don't hate it is okay. (Because people say "YOU UMBREON FAN, GO DIE, YOU LIKE AN OVERRATED POKEMON THAT SUCKS!!!! GO KILL YOURSELF", and I'm sick of it)

Most people don't. They just simply hate the thing and be done with it. Unless they actively want to start a ruckus.
I hate it, but I would never do something like that.

True Toxic and Will o Wisp can ruin it and it's fellow Eeveelution Sylveon can defeat it with Moonblasts. I don't really get the hype behind Umbreon i always preferred Espeon.

If you use taunt on it then your Umbreon has become a space occupier, since it has horrible offensive stats and it relies too much on non attacking moves.
Reply
:icontherandom500:
TheRandom500 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014
Yep it needs to rely on curse to boost its stats and use Payback more efficentialy. Once it's taunted well send out a fairy or fighting type Pokemon and it will be defeated in a couple of seconds. Oh and it has to rely on Moonlight since leftovers aren't going to help it much.

i really can't stand all of the hype for Umbreon either. I prefer Vaporeon and Jolteon. Also Espeon is pretty good. I don't really like any of the other Eeveelutions.

I do kinda like Umbreon, but it's probably my second least-favourite of the Eevees, simply because defensive isn't my playstyle I'd rather turn my Eevee into a bulky mon that can still dish out damage, like Vaporeon and Leafeon.

It's also by no means my favourite Dark type, being outclassed in that respect by Absol, Darkrai, Hydreigon, and Zoroark. 

Still, I do like that Umbreon's use as a wall isn't entirely based around cheap tactics, unlike CHansey and Gliscor.

This is kinda stupid...Maybe it's because umbreon's design is pretty and unique. You should make a stamp about charizard, everyone thinks he's do special when he's just a fucking dragon. And it's not fair he got two megas..how come blastoise and venusaur didn't?!

THere are PLENTY of stamps about how Charizard sucks.

This is the one of the ONLY stamps i've seen say something about Umbreon itself.

Charizard does not suck, he's just overrated
Umbreon isn't as overrated as maybe Jolteon, oh everyone likes electric types ''electric types are the best''

I'm not trying to be some butthurt lame deviant who's trying to argue, I'm just explaining

He does suck if he doesn't mega evolve. It's a fact.
Everyone seems to like dark types the best. Such as Absol, Umbreon, Scrafty, Weavile, Zoroark, and Greninja.

well, it's okay for people to like umbreon, just in moderation. i will admit that once in my life i was a rabid umbreon fangirl, so i'm not biased about eeveelution fangirlism. i also can't say that i hate all of the eeveelutions, because i like sylveon and vaporeon. but back on topic, as long as people keep things at an acceptable medium, then it's not annoying. i know people won't listen to me, but that's okay because i can't change everyone's opinion.
