    well i had gotten ruby (my first pokemon game) and i got to the first cave with the annoying pink blobs. I couldnt get past the rocks, so my brother told me that if i trained my torchic to level 68 it would learn rock smash. FML

    well, I got stuck in Violet City for several weeks because I did not read that I had to find Prof. Oak's aide and get the Togepi egg.

    I don't know if this could be for other games, and i know the forum says gens 1 to 3, but for me it was when i found out Pahiriu didn't evolve into Buizel 0.o

    In pokemon Ruby, I thought Tropius could evolve! I trained it until level 50, then I realized it was too big to evolve, like Snorlax. Also, I never met the Regis, cuz I wasted Dig on Swampert, that learned later Earthquake, and I said "Wow, attack power 100, bye Dig!" ahhh such good memories :B

    The very first time I played any Pokémon game, It took me WEEKS to figure out that the "tree" blocking the road (Sudowoodo) would react to the Squirtbottle. While I was breaking my head to discover it, my Lv20 Quilava reached lv25...30...35...evolved to Typhlosion...lv40... 50... 55. Yeah, before the fourth gym I had an E4-level Pokémon just because I was too dumb to go forward. Also...

    ... I did the same on that game. lol



    Also, I was another noob who believed that myth of Mew and the truck.

    In Red, i could not find professor oak! i talked to blue/gary for an hour, till i went to see what was north of the town!

    In Gold, i got lost pretty much everywhere! ilex forest, morty's gym, tin tower, victory road, fuchsia city gym( took me a week walking into walls to find my way in) it was so sad, my friends got me my first pokemon strategy guide just so i could stop asking them for help.

    And i still cannot figure out the whole breeding thing, i just capture them if i want a new one...

    For some reason, I couldn't find my way out of Rock Tunnel. I spent weeks trying to find my way to the outside.

    Where to find Bagon in R/S/E. I had the guidebook and everything and I never even bothered to look up Bagon's location in it for about a year after getting Ruby several years ago. x-x

    How to get into Saffron... I kept trying all entrances, I thought it was a pattern, as in north south east north east... Also, the ghost that didn't let me get into the top floor of the tower, I kept ramming it for days... There was a glitch where if you encounter a normal ghost and you go to change pokemon but view your charizard's stats, then it will become a cubone sprite or something, and I tried to catch it, so many of them... also in GSC, I didn't know about roaming pokemon, and I stayed in one route trying to encounter Entei again...

    This seems to have been really difficult to figure out if you're new to Pokemon (and even if you play through a good dozen of games non-competitively) but IVs. I really didn't know Pokemon had these different sets of numbers applied to them thus making them varied. I also should have figured out EVs as well. I knew that vitamins raised specific stats, but I didn't know how. All I knew is that they went "up" and that was good. This leads to the 100 EV limit that vitamins had; did not know that at all before!
