    the first one i can remember is getting stuck in the lighthouse on SoulSilver. i just could not figure out how to get of that floor where you have to fall out the window. eventually i ran in to it, fell out, and yelled OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.........................

    then the utterly annoying Ice cave. SS was the first game i got, and i had beaten Black, Pearl, and Diamond before i cam up with what i called plan ICE (Ice Cave Escape). yeah, i head desk about it all the time.

    Then Victory Road in SS. i had just found Bulbapedia, but not the walkthroughs. it took me a couple billion more Restarts to get through.

    (for some odd reason all these moments have to do with SS......)

    Most of these happened when I was a kid, so...

    R/B: I was playing through and found Articuno. My brilliant self decided, "HEY, LET'S MASTERBALL THAT THING." Imagine the frustration when I accidentally found Mewtwo later in the game.
    I was a genius and thought having Bulbasaur and a Nidoran (I think it was female) on the same team was the best thing ever. Clearly I had no idea that Bulbasaur was part Poison as well.
    I think (I don't quite remember, so don't take my word on this) that I tried to solo Lance with Venusaur at one point. Yeah, bad idea there.

    G/S: For some reason, I had no clue that Dark was weak to Fighting, so I kept losing to Karen's Umbreon. I got so frustrated that I never actually bothered finishing Gold. Later, I got Silver, and then I figured it out and beat the game.

    R/S: WHAT DO YOU MEAN TATE'S A BOY

    Thought forever that Rare Candies raised your exp bar to the same percentage on the next level, never payed attention. Didn't realize it set it to 0% on the next level. I finally noticed when I used it on my lvl 86 Alakazam on Emerald who was at about 90% exp for the level.

    I never knew about the difference between physical and special attacks. It took me until Black/White to figure it out when my Darmanitan killed with fire punch, but couldn't do anything with flamethrower.

    Is it's special attack that low? Because Flamethrower=Ice beam (its a variation)

    Nearly everything that isn't "Select and talk with A and move with the D-Pad" is this.
    Seriously, when I first played, I didn't know how to use HMs! I never thought of talking to the rock or selecting it from the Pokémon selection screen. Oh, and when I first played Diamond, I didn't care for the cutscenes and barely knew anything about english, so I didn't understand why Dawn didn't let me pass until, like, a week later, when my Chimchar was already a Monferno. Oh, and I didn't know you were supposed to train more than one Pokémon, nor that moves had different powers and stuff. So I pretty much tried to kill everything with my Level 81 Luxray and his Charge Beam.

    ...I was such a noob back then...

    When I was playing Platinum, I didn't realise HMs weren't able to be forgotten. So my Monferno knew two HM moves - Rock Smash and Cut. I had the hardest time because of that...

    Also I didn't remember you were suppose to get the Orbs and talk to the elders in Celestic Town to encounter Dialga and Palkia. I had the orbs but forgot to talk to the elders... so it ended up me going to the Spear Pillar and searching for six months. Finally I asked my friend for help and they pointed it out.

    I got really frustrated but at least that problem was solved.
    Don't you think this is going really far?

    I got stuck in Ice Path for far too long, my Feraligatr was level 63 or so when I got to Claire.

    Okay, I'm sure you'll all get a laugh out of this one. I got Diamond, my first pokemon game, when I was 11. I spent 1 HOUR trapped in my room until I realised that those yellow things in the right corner were the stairs.
