Murphy's Laws of Pokémon

For those who don't know what Murphy's Laws are, they explain that anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Here's my Pokémon version that I thought up as I was breeding.
~In battles, there's no such thing as "no RNG hax." Any hax will be in your opponent's favor. No exceptions.
~When breeding for what you want, you will get the opposite of what is desired. The ones that do have the desired trait (gender, IV, nature, and/or Ability) will be undesireable everywhere else.
~When Wonder Trading, there will be someone offering an early route mon.
~When EV-training, a 'mon or a horde of 'mons you do not want will appear and ruin it. Bonus points if you used Sweet Scent or Honey, and rain comes after you flee.
~When using the Poké-Radar or chain-fishing, there will be a 'mon that will break your chain.
~If challenged to a random free battle, your opponent will use legendaries and will curb-stomp you with them.
~When someone initiates a trade out of nowhere, they will do so just to flaunt shinies and legendaries and never actually trade.
~Eventually, you will run out of healing items in the worst places.
~Field moves will always be required when you don't have the right 'mon for the job.
~If you find a Shiny, your game will find a way to prevent you from catching or keeping it.
~If looking for a 'mon with a desired Ability, you will be bombarded by members of the species with something else. Bonus points if the Ability you find is terrible.
~When battling someone (be a player or NPC), they will always start with a 'mon that counters your first 'mon. Bonus points if your 'mon has Intimidate and your opponent has an Ability that nullifies the Attack drop. More bonus points if the opponent's 'mon has Contrary or Defiant and is physically oriented, or has Competitive and is specially oriented.
~If looking for a certain item, you'll always get something else. Bonus points if it is something unwanted.
~When breeding, eggs never come in a timely fashion, no matter how well your two 'mons get along.
~When doing a Nuzlocke, you will lose 'mons in the worst places. Bonus points if you were in the Pokémon League.
I'm sure I haven't covered all of them, so feel free to post any additions in the comments.
