Catching Cobalion, Terrakion and Virizion ALL with critical captures.
Realizing that more than half of my in-game battle Pokémon were caught with critical captures.
Being down to my last team member in a Random Match battle (prior to the US release) and realizing that I'd be lucky if I made it out. It was my Doryuzu vs his Nutrey (with one other remaining), and I was out of PP for Earthquake. I put my bet on Horn Drill, breathed a sigh of relief when it worked, and got lucky that his final Pokémon was a Pendora. Since I still had PP for Rock Slide I used it and won. That felt like a true "YES!" moment. (For the record, I had gotten unlucky during the match, as a series of Leaf Tornados from his Jalorda tore apart my other two Pokémon while leaving their accuracy in tatters, only falling to an earlier Toxic attack.)
(Edited to change Nutrey to the romanized name, since I noticed transliterated names don't trigger the Bulbapeida links)
~Virizion. Virizion. Rosy knight Virizion. Make the trouble go away, so that we may laugh and play.~
Disclaimer: I play by VGC rules, don't EV train or care about IVs, use the Japanese names (and sometimes even terms), and I refuse to take part in drama.
I am playing through Blue again and earlier today I spent like 2 hours seeking a Chansey in the Safari Zone. I had encountered about 3-4 of them, and they all ran away almost immediately. Then I found one and decided to just throw a ball without any rocks or bait, and I got it on my first try!

When I achieved my 50th streak in Battle Factory :)
Small ones when I find new areas, and pokemon I'm looking for. When I win gym battles too.
Clearing Stargazer Colosseum Master Battle Set 8, after like a million failed attempts and thousands of rage-quits. 8D; I hope the Wii U doesn't have the same problem as the Wii does, where games with Wi-Fi can't move save files to an SD card, because I never want to go through that hell again. The triumph is amazing, but the headache isn't.
Signature is a WIP for the moment.
For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.
When I went up against Cynthia for the 3rd time, I thought:
"Gee, how will I lose THIS time?"
I was down to like 30 hp on my Empoleon when I critical hit whatever Cynthia's last one was, when...
It was a goner like THAT.
MAN was that hard!

My "Yes!" moment was when I got a shiny Seciper and I random found a shiny Pawniard. ^^

~~~~trying to hatch a shiny Vulpix~~~~
I remember that in my Ruby Version, I caught Groudon with a normal Pokéball. No hacks. This may sound unrealistic, but I restarted my game after.
Winning the eight gym badge, and against the kimono girls with (mostly) just the red gyarados.
