    Ground isn't super-effective against ground? Wut. (I thought that for like...years. Seriously. x.o)

    The Porygon line is Normal, not Psychic? Sudowoodo is pure Rock, not Rock/Grass? Dunsparce is Normal, not Water?

    And the biggest shocker of all...TATE'S A GUY?
    That really made me go, "wait, what".

    I thought dual-types were introduced in Gen 2 until last year, when I found out they were indeed present in Gen 1. As a seven-year-old, I just did not understand R/B at all.

    I have 3 words: Gen one caves. The were the hardest thing in the game. Also I thoughgt you could only catch the legendary birds with a masterball and never wenr in cruealan cave. Cavephobia and very little internet acces was a bitch. But i never fell for mew truck (Mostly becase I could not find it)

    ^ this. After playing the games since they came out, up until about 2 months ago I didn't realise Electric could hit rock - and is normally affected by it.

    Again, me too - mainly because of Pokemon Yellow and Pikachu being unable to damage Onix or Geodude in the first gym (Brock's gym is a "rock" gym, but obviously the reason the electric attacks couldn't hit was because both pokemon happen to be ground type, too)... it doesn't seem like a ridiculous conclusion to make, really... it just took me far too long to lose that association...!

    the stump things in viridian forest aren't grimers

    Magikarp is completely useless

    Old rods only hook magikarp

    I should save before battling a legendary in case I kill it

    ^ Same thing with me about Old Rod and saving before battling a Legendary. LOL XD

    Here's one of mine...
    Psychic is WEAK to Ghost. When I was playing Pokemon Blue, I didn't know Gastly was a part Poison, so I thought Psychic was doing the double damage.

    Mega Punch/Mega Kick was Normal Type? (or is it?)
    Psychic is strong against poison? Or alternatively, why did I use my Infernape to take down Cyrus's Crobat instead of my Gallade with Psycho Cut? (in platinum)
    Blast Burn never gives a burn?
    Judgment is spelled without an e? (wait... I might have posted this earlier...)

    that Frontier Brain Greta has a Shedinja, and I should've brought a Pokémon with a super effective move.

    In R/B, not being able to figure out how to get past the guy who wanted to drink his coffee was like hell on earth. And then there was figuring out what you had to do after beating Lt. Surge. My impatience really kicked in at these points

    I used to not know a majority of the resistances. For example, I never knew Ice didn't resist Water, that Grass resisted Ground, and that Electric resisted Steel.

    Mt. Moon in Red. I was stuck in there for 3 weeks because of the stupid Zubats and Geodude appearing every 2 steps.
