I think Ash turning to stone in the first movie made me cry originally. Since this thread did not specify whether I can use the games or not, I will also say the fugitive scenario and the end of MD also made me very sad.
The waves of history swallow everything until we are all spat back out as flotsam, and then we are gone.

Mine is from Mew's origin, when the little girl dies while talking to baby Mewtwo. God, that's like the only time I really felt sad watching the show.
I know the girl technically wasn't "alive" anymore, but showing a little girl die in Pokemon was a serious thing. Everything from the music to the way that scene played out was actually dramatic. Good stuff.
I don't think I've ever cried from a specific moment, but the most "emotional" moment for me was when Pikachu Shocked all of those Spearows and saved Ash in Episode 1. In general, most of the emotional moments are all in Season 1
The beginning of the first movie - like Scott said - with Ai-Two dying...and really the whole thing, was pretty sad. It's a shame it was cut from the American release. Obviously Butterfree's Goodbye was heart-wrenching...so was Pikachu's almost goodbye. Oh, and Arbok and Matadogasu departure was sad as well. Same with Sabonea's farewell and I can't help but think Dokucale's is gonna be a tearjerker too.
I never cry on sad stuff like that but I will admit that Pikachu's Goodbye was one of the saddest episodes I've ever seen. I also thought the scene from Pokemon 4Ever where Ash tries to revive Celebi and when it doesn't work and he just bursts out crying was extermely sad, especially when your seeing your own hero cry. Then again at the end of the movie where Sammy leaves Ash to go back to his original time. Frankly I never saw the point in crying.

I also cried when Ash lost the Indigo League 'cause I believe heroes of every cartoon will win at that time.:P
I want to kill that arrogant Charizard.But strangely I cried again when Ash abandoned that arrogant Charizard.:P
Arbok and Weezing act like big brothers is touching.And Jessie, James, Meowth and Wobbuffet fight against Tyranitar for them is very touching!But it's ironic that Ash said there is villain like TR and there is hero like the one who release Koffing and Ekans.I just want to punch Ash for saying that!

I remembered another sad moment was when Ash is cheering up Max in the Jirachi Wishmaker movie.
Also, in the Bye Bye Butterfree scene, for one reason or another, I found that the music highly contributed to the sadness. They start out with that sad Japanese BGM track, and then transition into the Pokemon Theme Song, showing both the sadness and the happiness in Butterfree's departure.
The Pikachu Goodbye scene was sad as well, but not the best BGM.
The overall saddest moment for me was, The First Movie. I was at the theater, and I cried during the scene when Ash was turned to stone. That scene was truly sad for me, especially with that beautiful BGM!
The next saddest moment for me....has to be when Pikachu got amnesia in "A Scare To Remember". I don't know about you guys, but that episode really hit me on an emotional level. Not only that, but Veronica did an excellent job with that episode! I mean, when I first saw that episode on its original airing on KidsWB, it almost brought me to tears (especially when Pikachu got its memory back, near the end! That was so heart-warming!). ^_^
And finally, I'm giving an honorable mention to the death of Sir Aaron (which was followed by Lucario's death) in the 8th movie. Once again, I almost found myself in tears, because I was so deeply moved by the movie's storyline! It was amazing!
