These have been the bane of the Pokémon universe since the dawn of time. They’re annoying and there is no way around that fact. They’re also a necessary evil that we must put up with no matter what iteration of the game we’re playing. With that said, it doesn’t change the fact that we’d like to leave these guys dead in the tall grass rather than encounter them countless times through our run through.
It also seems like there is a never ending supply of Pokémon Trainers in the world. It’s like they’re around every corner just waiting for you to walk by. They don’t even give you the choice to fight or not either — it’s all, “I saw you, it’s on.” It’s even worse when your team is overpowered and you’re fighting these guys while picking up limited EXP. Ugh.
