    Default Your "What the....?" moments!

    Since we have threads for moments good ("yes"), bad ("ffuuuuuu"), and embarassing mistakes, I thought I would start one for those crazy and weird moments, as I'm not finding any threads on it. Got any *facepalm* or wtf moments to share?

    To start this off, I just bred a Riolu for in case Black 2 won't let me have one. Both of its Lucario parents were given the power items to pass down their strongest stats (father's Special Attack and mother's Special Defense). When the egg hatches, the resulting child had a Naughty nature, which was fine, and just to find out, even with the Power Lens on the father, he never inherited the father's perfect 31 IV in SA. When I checked with the stat judge, it turns out the child does have a perfect 31 IV stat... in Defense. Neither of the parents had that stat, but I'm not complaining here, especially when he's relatively superior as well. But it's just... odd.

    Another WTF: When I started Black, Cheren's Snivy was one hit away from defeating my Oshawott. He throws the battle by spamming Leer until his Snivy fainted, and I emerged victorious. Seriously, Cheren?

    Okay, done for now. If you all have something to share, have at it.

    Seeing the ghost butler and the little girl at the Old Chateau for the first time. I was definitely not expecting that.

    yesterday, while trying to catch the shiny Haxorus, a critical capture Quick ball missed on the first turn. Seriously?

    often times when I'm in a battle facility, I'll end up facepalming to myself any time I accidentally use an ineffective move that costs me the battle, I've had that quite a few times.

    my WTF moments tend to happen when I'm trying to catch a legendary Pokemon, and since my current pokeballs used (dusk balls in platinum when trying to catch Palkia) don't work, I look at my other ones and go "*eff* it" and throw something else(Quick Ball)... and catch it right away.

    this ensues:


    I nearly caught all the three musketeers with Premier Balls as a result, though I caught Terrakion with something else... which I forget what it is...

    When I was 6/7 playing leaf green, I thought Pokemon could permanently die due to poisoning, so I was really scared to face Koga. Long story short, I ended up with a Lv. 73 Jolteon and a Lv. 66 Charizard for the 5th gym.

    Just saved White 2 with a gameplay of 200:00. That exact. And unintentional.

    Typhlosion uses eruption on Venasaur. It hits but does nothing literally nothing I used it last round to take away half his health and that hit would of finished him but the game fudged up somehow, I went on to lose the battle I was robbed !!!

    The rival battle thing happens in all the games i think, my rival was beating my Cyndauil quite easily then he used leer 10 times so i could win. I dont think its possible to lose that first match i could be wrong though

    Okay, finally got a Riolu from Floccesy Ranch. However, it was initially a Yes! moment until I find that she's Calm natured. I swear, all the male Riolu I had ever were Naughty, and all the female Riolu I had were Calm!

    I have one. Back on Platinum, I was trying to catch a Sableye in Iron Island. For those who don't know, you had to have a game in the slot to find it (Sapphire, I think). I had Emerald in there, which was the wrong game, and ended up finding my first ever shiny. It was pretty cool. Another, more recent one, was when I was fighting Iris's Hydreigon, and much to my surprise it had a Life Orb.

    My turn! Of all of my Pokemon experiences, the one that made my head spin the most was the final boss of Pokemon Rumble Blast. First time I fought it, I was thoroughly shocked (not to mention, scared) by the idea of fighting something that is not a Pokemon. I'm pretty used to seeing only Pokemon appear in the franchise, so battling something that isn't one made me completely surprised.
