    Default "Wow, I was an IDIOT!" moments

    So basically, this thread is retelling those times from when you were playing a Pokemon game and you did something that made you look like an idiot when it came to Pokemon. A few examples are like killing a wild Shiny Pokemon on purpose, resetting your game because you thought Pokerus was a bad thing, basically anything that made people think you were a noob.

    One time I tried to breed Lilligant and Samurott together, and I waited two days for an egg until I found out that I couldn't breed them.

    Using quick attack on a Jellicent not too long ago.

    I knew it was a ghost type and I use quick attack on everything with low HP. I facepalmed irl after I clicked it.

    Oh boy, when I played as a kid, there were a whole lot of 'em.

    - I couldn't figure out how to get inside the Sootopolis Gym
    - Misclicks
    - Not knowing how breeding works
    - Wondering why I couldn't hit certain Pokemon with certain moves
    - Basically not knowing any of the game mechanics.
    - Only training my starter
    - Only using my starter and legendary
    - Not knowing where to go next in the story line
    - Didn't have a certain HM, so I was stuck somewhere
    - I would constantly spam moves that couldn't hit until they 'hit'

    That's all I can think of.

    Perfect thread for me. xD.
    Here's some I can remember...
    -Thinking I could go to Johto in Firered/Leafgreen but I can't. (This is what happens when you play HG/SS first. xD.)
    -Thinking I could get Dialga in Pearl when I couldn't. (This is also what happens when you play Platinum first. xD.)
    -Getting stuck in Pastoria City's gym.
    -Shutting my DS off when my Crobat Screch got Pokerus. (Thought it was bad. DX.)
    ...That's it, I think. o3o. I'm sure there's more but I can't remember them..

    Trying to breed an Elekid with a Medicham to get an Elekid with Ice Punch, took me three hours to remember that Elekid can´t breed with anyone because he's a baby pokemon...

    Before I discovered EV training, I pumped my Pokemon full of steroids Vitamins in order to get them attached to me. Yeah, not a smart move on my part. >.<

    I ran into a shiny Zubat in Silver. Scared the hell out of me, because all my 6 year old mind registered was a black and white flashing screen and a green Zubat. So I ran away from it :c

    Teaching my Torterra in Diamond Giga Drain with a TM, only to find out later that it naturally learns the move XD

    I was seventeen when I realized that Bug-type moves aren't very effective against Fighting-types.

    As someone who plays semi-competitively, imagine how embarrassed I was.

    I thought Plusle evolved into Minun, and that Volbeat evolved into Illumise. I spent several hours a day trying to evolve them.

    I got stuck in Skyla's gym in White. I thought I went the wrong way, but I just missed the obvious alternate entrance into one of the cannons. Wasted of 20 mins. of my life.

    Oh, just remembered something.

    - I used my rare candies to level up Rhydon until Lv100 wondering why he wouldn't evolve into a Rhyperior.
    - I also did the same with Poliwrath, who I was trying to get to be a Politoed.

    I used Fissure on Mewtwo in Yellow just for the lolz before I was gonna throw my Master Ball at it. Unfortunately it hit and I didn't think to just restart (I was young and foolish).

    I also spent about an hour looking for a way to the top of the lighthouse in HeartGold until I found the hole in wall.
