    I had decided to make a team of level 1 magikarps to battle with one of my friends as a joke. Then I forgot I still had a team of magikarp and challenged.the gym. Not good.

    Back in the day, I caught a Electrode with a Masterball, just to examine how guaranteed "guaranteed" actually was. Needless to say, I was a strange boy then xD


    Kudos to Neodark for the best banner! AWESOME job!

    One time in Pokemon Sapphire, i found an item ball. However, my bag was full. So I decided to toss out an item that I saw in the description only worked on one Pokemon. That item? A light ball.

    I made a ton of really nice Poke Blocks in Ruby, then turned off the power.

    Guess what? I hadn't saved. >.<

    I was messing around Cerulean Cave in a friend's LeafG, when a shiny Golbat appeared, I thought the game glitched or something, and freaked out. I killed it and proceed to tell my friend "dood ur game dosen't work lol green golbat wtf!", and got the appropriate response. This was a time I wasn't so much into Pokemon mind you.

    Years later found another shiny Golbat outside Mt. Silver on HG, only this time I caught it!:D

    I was chaining for shiny Beldum with the Poké Radar, and my chain had reached 40. "Hey, is that one of those shiny patches?"

    In X, I had no idea how to get down from the cliffs on Route 8 and thought that pit with the weird looking stones was just there to block you. I ran around for nearly twenty minutes...until I accidentally hopped on one of the round rocks.

    Man, I am stupid sometimes.

    In Y, I spent close to three hours in Terminus Cave trying to get to the exit to the next town before I realized there were stairs right in front of its entrance. Which I had passed several times.


    Did lots of training though, so it's not complete waste of time

    -When I was 7, I encountered a Shiny, but I had no idea what is was.
    -Picking the grass starter in Black/White.
    -Dropping my DS after a Gym Battle, and the screen froze.
    -Playing Pokemon at my 7th or 8th birthday party. I had to redo those battles. D:
    -When I was 7, I messed around with my PC Box, and I ended up sending half my team back into the wild. I hated myself for like a month. But now, my Level 70 Roserade can take down an Infernape easily, and my cousin traded for an Infernape!
    -Yesterday, I spent 20 minutes looking for an exit to the Lighthouse in Heartgold.
    -Forgetting that where I am in Pokemon Heartgold, Team Rocket pays 1,000 dollars to get into the Lake of Rage. And I went there when I was low on money.
    -I put my name in Pokemon Pearl in caps. (So when I talk to someone, it's like: Hi, EMILY! Want a cookie, EMILY?
    -Going to the Spear Pillar with no Potions or Pokeballs.

    I killed a wild shiny Pokémon on purpose. Dx

    It was the red Gyarados on G/S (can't remember which version). I was getting annoyed by the whole thing and I thought I was supposed to make him faint so I did. It only crossed my mind later that I wouldn't have another chance to capture him.

    Alright, so it wasn't entirely on purpose, but it still made me facepalm.

    I didn't know that I had to get the Machine Part in Cerulean City Gym in Pokemon Silver, because I skipped the texts like an idiot. It took me 3 weeks to finally progress with the story, after someone told me what to do.

    • When I first played Gold, in 2001, it took me a long time to get past Route 29.
    • Also in Gold, I saved having fainted Ho-oh and...
    • ...wasted the Master Ball on a Doduo at Route 26. It wasn't even shiny. :-P
    • I have had a history of using the starting Pokémon almost exclusively in most battles. I try to do this less often now, but due to laziness, my parties still often end up with lop-sided levels.

    For the longest time I kept thinking that Psychic types are strong against Dark types, then moments later I find that my Musharna keeps getting its ass kicked by Liepard for a good reason XD

    It does happen sometimes because I keep forgetting but now I learned my lesson XD Dark > Psychic.

    You dont know how long it took to loose that battle.

    Oh and I traded a SHINY KINGLER FOR A FRIGGEN PIGNITE
    Same thing happened to me in Diamond. It was my first Pokemon game and the only pokemon I trained was Piplup. So by the time I got to the Elite 4 Empoleon was at 74, Staraptor was at 36 and everyone else was like...below 20. Plus I had Dialga (that I caught with a Master Ball XD) at level 50.

    I'm surprised I managed to win any of those battles but Emopleon's Surf just swept everyone away ^^'
