    I spent hours and hours looking for a Slugma in HeartGold. I can't remember if I ever actually caught one.

    I feel your pain. Even worse for me, I got an Eevee spawned early in and then while chipping away, my Pignite burned the Eevee and it fainted the next round, forcing another 45 mins of hunting before I found an Eevee. Fortunately, that one ended up with a great nature for a Jolteon evo [Naive] so I was thankful for that.

    I have spent hours and hours hunting good IV/nature Gastly in pretty much every generation since I almost always have a Gengar on my team. BW2 is my first departure from this, though I plan to have a ghost per game still.

    Ah... The good ol' Relicanth-pain. I think I know how you must have felt. I was looking for the same stupid thing (and a Wailord) in order to capture the damn thing and put it in my party so that I can go for Regi-hunting.

    I also remember those countless hours, when I was desperately trying to find a Latios in Ruby. Oh the horror...

    I spent countless months on the off chance that I'd get a shiny Snivy in Black. No, not months, years. I only stopped when I saw Snivies taunting me in my sleep. I never did find one.

    Then, I spent hours yesterday looking for a Feebas in White 2. On the wrong route. I suppose it would be worth it if I found one now.

    Also, here I was looking for a Scrafty for my PokeDex, on Route One, (took days because I thought they appeared in normal grass, :P.) When a shiny Jigglypuff jumps out at me. Scrafty suddenly wasn't so important. But I still wasted my life with thirty more minutes of hunting.

    Feebas in ruby, needed Feebas and Milotic to complete the Hoenn dex. I never managed to find it the wild and ended up trading something ridiculous with a friend to get one, I then had difficulty evolving it, but succeeded eventually.

    I also remember having difficulty catching an Electabuzz in red version which I also needed to complete the pokedex, remember spending days encountering every other pokemon except it in the power plant before I finally encountered one and caught it.

    Latias in Pokemon Emerald. I kid you not, it took me three months to pin her down, weaken her and finally catch her. After that I never wasted my precious time on a solitary roaming legendary ever again. If I don't catch them within a few days of dedication to the cause, they end up seeing the business end of Master Ball. I only didn't use it on Latias because I was young, stupid and had wasted it on one of the legendary mascots, probably Rayquaza, even though I didn't really want it. But I did want Latias and by Arceus, I was going to catch her!

    Also Eevee in Black 2. I searched for one for AGES in Castelia City before I found one. Ironically when I was doing a Nuzlocke and went into the grass, one popped up straight away and it was a girl. But when I have the chance to catch and breed as many as I want, I never even find one.

    I recently spent hours looking for a female Modest Eevee in Castelia City. I was ready to give up when I found some extremely useful tips on another site which helped me find exactly what I wanted within a few minutes. If only I knew those tricks earlier lol. >.<

    Ralts was very difficult for me to find..but i never give up on getting a pokemon i want.
    pfft and this reminds me, when i was a kid, when pokemon red was still fairly new, i searched for Mew, unaware that you can't get it..except from a glitch which i knew nothing about.
    i just assumed Mew would be in the same cave as Mewtwo so i spent weeks searching through the cave trying to find it..
    yes weeks...i was 8, i had nothing better to do.

    Chimecho was a hassle in Emerald. It took nearly an hour to find. Ironically, I found the Ralts I wanted and a Feebas on the first tries in the same game. Gible in Platinum (or one of my many Platinums) was also a pain. Every time I found the one I wanted, I'd end up KOing it by accident thanks to a badly-timed Critical Hit. That took a while, especially since I wanted a male, and all I got were females, with males far and few between. Feebas in Platinum was also a major headache. I tried and tried and tried, but came up empty handed. I ended up asking someone on this forum ages ago for one, which I got, so that ended that.

    Yep. I searched forever in Gold version to find a Heracross. I never succeeded. :( But other than that I've been pretty lucky with fndng a Ralts in Ruby along with a Riolu in Black 2. :D
