Basically, this is a thread to see what kind of regrets/mistakes folks have had/made, i.e - not training a specific pokemon more, using a 'one time' TM foolishly, and anything else really!

I guess i regret my Roserade not being shiney (love her all the same and she's one of my best battlers, so dont regret too much) and giving away my TM Charge Beam to my nephew :( have found sooooooooo many uses for it since i gave it away! And i think he taught it to a bidoof as well :O

I have several regrets, they would be:

1) not ev training my lvl 100 impish swampert that had great Ivs, it took me a while to fix this one...
2) teaching my registeel stealth rock, I have found many better users of the move since. ( fixed the problem by buying diamond)
3) Not using pokemon with the synchronize ability to catch competitive pokemon (it takes FOREVER if you don't use synchronizers)
4) trading away my 1st starter this gen, I still miss my poor Torterra :(

I can't think of anything too regretable other then using my TM26 too soon. I thought I had properly planned out my team and their moves, but I was a bit wrong. Now I regret that even if it didnt turn out too terrible.

-Not training my Weavile. ;-;
-Using my Master all on Azelf.
-Not EV-ing my Pokemon. Except Aggron. -_-;
-Using.....important TM's to other Pokemon, ;_;

Ermm... the thing that I regret the most is that I didn't capture Azelf & Uxie, and killed them instead. The reason why I did that is because I was rushing to finish the Sinnoh Dex. Man, that was the foolish mistake that I ever did. I then became obsessed with Uxie; SUPER bad luck. :(

I sort of regret purchasing Diamond. Now there's little to no chance of me getting Platinum... (unless I get a job...) And I also regret not playing it for a full month.

You could have ran from then, then when you would have came back into their cave they would stillb e here, and their data in your Dex.

I've tried that and it works.

Mine would probably be helping my cousin out by giving him an entire team of perfectly bred and EV trained pokemon to counter my own instead of making him breed for himself. He'll probably never even try it now.

He also won half of our matches yesterday and I no longer like Gyarados/Salamence/Heracross/Tyranitar.

16th June 2008, 6:52 PM
Not EV training any of my Pokemon, so I had to rehatch them and trade away other good Pokemon to get the TM's I needed.

Sigh!

When i let my cousin borrow my game he released my shiny toterra.... :(

That would actually be another regret of mine. I didnt know what it was until recently, so it's kinda hard trying to do it to my pokemon team now :/

hmm... I used my stealth rock on the wrong thing... I trained a quiet natured porygon-z, I sold off a number of possibly handy battle items to ease my pain in scrolling to the bottom of the warehouse that is my backpack, I don't have the patience to breed for those insane 31/30/30/31/31 etc IV combos to get the best possible IVs for a given hidden power, Master Ball'd Dialga cuz it was my only ball, spent hours upon hours perfecting my game that will all be for naught when Platinum comes out and becomes my main version....

I used the Dragon Pulse TM on a migrated Kingdra before I knew that it learned it naturally. I used the Roost TM on an in-game Staraptor. I used the Shadow Claw TM on an Absol before I knew it learned Night Slash.

I know what you mean. I almost resent ever having started breeding for a perfectly suitable Rioli (30 hours and 400 eggs, so far) but I really want to have a great Lucario. I actually quit at one point and began EV training a decent Rioli, but I got to level three and couldn't stand the thought of it anymore. Who knows, maybe I'll eventually hatch a new shiny.

I regret restarting my Diamond, with my only ever shiny (magneton) on it, and my friends rayquaza, he gave me a right earful! I had also just completed the game for my first time, and had caught and pal park'd ALOT of pokemon.

I regret migrating a bunch of my high leveled pokemon from Emerald to Diamond.

That reminds me. I was first a little bitter about my near perfect IV'd Gardevoir (the only pokemon who took half as long as the Lucario I'm working on) lost the ability to use Fire Punch effectively. Sure, it isn't meant to work as a sweeper, but it outran most everything on the Battle Frontier anyway.

In fact, I hated the physical/special attack split for about a month over Gardevoir's loss and the newly physical dark type attacks hitting her average defense harder.

I was in a hurry, and ended up trading my Squirtle. The thing is, that Squirtle was specially bred with the nature I wanted, and the Pokemon I received was hacked. I'm still trying to get another Squirtle with that exact nature.

I had a pearl and ruby in my ds.i took them to school for a couple of weeks since my freinds were playing them soon people found out and after 2 weeks later my ds along with ruby and pearl were stolen T.T i had all the event pokemon using AR and my legends like moltres,mewtwo and others from firered and leafgreen which i migrated.i also had every starter and almost all my rare pokemon in emerald including lugia,ho-oh,deoxys and celebi which i most likly wont get back because my freinds ar broke T.T

My only regret when it comes to Pearl is restarting so many damn times, and wiping some pretty good team members. Nothing that can't be fixed like, but that's not the point.

I regret trading my Shiny Mew for a Manaphy when I first joined the Forums.
Not EV training my Pokemon.
Selling all of the TMs that I need now.
And..............training a hacked Darkrai (got it from a friend) when I now have a real one.

17th June 2008, 11:15 PM
Picking Empolean and not having a balanced team for the most part. I discovered a water/steel type was the worst typing ever. I mean seriously a water type that loses to fighting and ground(or was it rock or both?) types. Not to mention the normaly grass disadvantage even though it turned to normal and no longer being as strong against fire.

I had an Impish Duskull that my friend saved for me while he was breeding for a different nature, and had bred them all with Pain Split. I put the Duskull in the daycare to make my own, only to plug in his stats into an EV calculator and discovered that he had as close to the right IVs as I hope to get.

But when I pulled him out of the Day Care, the old couple made him forget Pain Split for another move. -_-

I hate that I gave away my Garchomp(got a really good offer for it), and that I released my Raichu(wasn't performing very well, but I miss it) If I didn't give them away I would still have all the Pokemon of my original Diamond team. And for some reason I regret giving my Milotic that last poffin, I don't why I just do...

18th June 2008, 7:21 PM
I used one Razor Claw and traded another away, so now I have to stock up all those battle points if I want to actually seriously train that Sneasel in my box (which I really do).

Also used a couple of one-time TMs rashly. Darn it!

Prominence
18th June 2008, 7:35 PM
On Diamond:
Using a cheating device; 999x Rare Candy's and all TM's 99x was fun, but using my AR to complete my Pokédex was a big mistake. Now the only thing left to do for me on Diamond is EV-training and trying to get a 100win-streak in the Hax Tower. I also regret using it to catch Shiny Pokémon, they're just so... fake.

Luckily I don't cheat on Pearl so I can still complete the Pokédex there in a legimit way :)

Also, I don't think you can use your TM's stupidly, at least not the first 50. You can clone them on Emerald you know. Even before I started hacking on Diamond, I already cloned EQ like 20 times on Emerald :P

19th June 2008, 3:16 AM
i would say that i regret using my masterball on palkia.
i mean i could have got it with a pokeball!
also using an action replay....it made the game really boring.

legendcollector
19th June 2008, 3:47 AM
I kinda regret buying both versions. Then again, that was before I had wi-fi, so that was the only way I could complete my pokedex. But now my Pearl is just kinda layin around collecting dust.

19th June 2008, 3:58 AM
Refraining of using the Masterball with Mesprit....(....mesprit...mesprit....mesprit!!!... ../trauma)

That, and cloning of some of my best pokemon (and some legendaries too) to a couple of friends. Though we EV trained them very differently, i still feel as i chopped-off myself because of doing that. I don't do cloning anymore, but i regret every time i see my pokemon against me on online battles...:S

Edit: *Checks GTS* or...seeing some of them in auction on GTS....*sigh*......

-I migrated my event Mew to D/P, before I knew that I could've cloned it in Emerald...
-I raised some of my best Pokemon over Lv50...only to find out that I can't use Lv50+ Pokemon in the upcoming Pokemon Video Game Showdown Qualifier Tournament!

2) teaching my registeel stealth rock, I have found many better users of the move since. ( fixed the problem by buying diamond)
3) Not using pokemon with the synchronize ability to catch competitive pokemon (it takes FOREVER if you don't use synchronizers)
4) trading away my 1st starter this gen, I still miss my poor Torterra :(

You COULD save the poor swampert: give it 10 Proteins (and other EV boosting stuff), and deposit into PC, then withdraw.
Pokemon's stats are re-calculated when deposited in the PC. So if you take your Swampert back, it will have a higher Attack. This worked in Sapphire, and I believe it works in D/P.

WhyteMage
19th June 2008, 8:38 AM
Not many regrets, if any. I'm pretty cautious with what I do, and I never trade (other than the Ho-oh and the shiny Palkia I got from here).

I can't find a waterstone underground on diamond even though I have around 5 on pearl. Never gives me what I want when I want it (for my Eevee).

It was probably finding out that the PBR gifts were one-time only. That was pretty saddening. Now I'll have to find elaborate breeding chains if I want something with dark pulse...

Manix
19th June 2008, 1:45 PM
I don't have many...aside from having my lv100 kyogre migrated. Its sucks, and I need a second...wait, I have one on sapphire...
Regretting EV training sometimes. Especially when you forget to save...

The only regret I have is my OT name. I was a noob back then, and I gave my DP character a noob name. And now I have all these good pokemon with a noob OT!

Also, I regret random-training my Darkrai. It now has all these ******-up EVs...

I also feel like a sellout because I cloned all my TMS and rarecandies on wi fi.

Mine would be teaching good tms to pokemon I don't use or end up trading away. Another would be regretting trading pokemon that I was attached too such as a lopunny that I leveled up, taught 2 fight moves to and then took to the pokemon league. Another thing was spelling my OT with all small letters :/

not devoting more time to playing, especially shiney hunting. though i have no issue getting them randomly, i just wish i had the time to sit go pokedar it. not training more of my pokemon upto level 100, i used to get alot of pokemon to that level and now i only have 2 at that level.

23rd June 2008, 12:41 PM
not paying attention 2 my chain :(

I was chaining pidgey and I restarted the chain. The sound was off. I walked into a normal patch second and just kept bashing A without looking at the screen. Just as I saw the words "Floatzel used Ice Fang" I realised it was shiny :(
I was angry for the rest of the night :(

EDIT: I also regret dropping my DS thus ruining the hinge. For 7 months the screen had colour retardations. It recently gave up hope and will not stay on for longer than 2 seconds. I did manage to get quite a few shinies even with the crap screen. I'm now without a DS...jealous much? ;)

Loadz.

1.) Choosing Chimchar instead of Piplup. I like water types, but I chose Chimchar because of the early gym advantage's it had.
2.) Giving my Shiny Dialga ( took me at LEAST 150 soft resets... ) to my little sister for her birthday. When ever we battle ( even though I always win. ^.^d ) she has to be an ungrateful little brat and rub it in my face when she sends out the aqua uber. I felt so tempted to steal her DS and take it back, but I remembered that it was for her birthday. Also that she'd cry an ocean and snitch on me a millisecond later. >.>
3.) Not having an original team ( I had the usual Infernape Staraptor Roserade team, and thought it was unique. -.- ). Although, there wasn't many Pokémon with strong potential to choose from in this game. Before the National Dex, anyway.
4-5894759347534758935.) Don't feel like posting because I will age and die before I'm finished.

I got my vespiquen later in the game when i beat the elite-four, and getting my milotic at such a high level (lvl 8), i like to raise pokemon at low levels and then train them to higher ones. And my gallade as well, i got later in the game (After Vespiquen and before Milotic)......:(

imlatino
25th June 2008, 3:28 PM
Training an abra. It became such a good pokemon that it could practically beat anything. But when it game to the elite 4, I didnt stand a chance. Lv.51 Hp. like 110 defense like 38 he just kept dying. Not only that but I taught it Recycle and Shockwave!

a buddy of mine messed up my pearl with his AR unasked and since then
i have 99X explorerkits in my letter storage bag and a azure flute plus that item for darkrai.

he just did it, when i noticed it he screwed things up good even though
it still works

How can you regret only having 6 of them left?

I went to Toys R Us with my cousin and 2 DS's, along with Diamond and Pearl, but unlike most people, I stayed there from opening until almost closing, resetting my diamond and trading the Darkrai from the new file to Pearl. I got around 20 of them, but I traded them away for assorted goodies, Shinies, other Events, etc.

Nightshadow1313
25th June 2008, 6:24 PM
I regret:

-Not EV training my Staraptor whose IVs are perfect 31's in Atk, Spd, and HP.
-Not Soft reseting for a Shiny Palkia, Giratina, Heatran, or any other legendary. :(
-Using my Master Ball on Palkia (man, Cresselia was a pain with Dusk Balls).

But on a side note, you guys should be lucky you even have shinies in the first place. I have only seen a shiny pokemon once in-game, and it was a trainer's Seaking at the Battle Tower in Sapphire. T~T

Shinjo-Knight
25th June 2008, 7:17 PM
I regret not soft reseting for legendaries and not finding a single shiny in game.
T-T really really regret not going to Toys r us for Darkrai.
I also taught Physic to one of my pokemon that would have learned it naturally >_<

SaiyanHikari
26th June 2008, 6:09 AM
two regrets.
One is teaching Hidden power to an Abra which I didn't even check the IV's of (I think it had a really bad electric)
Two is crying because I have a shiny Doduo...in gen 2.

Not getting a low level Manaphy when I had the chance. I'm still waiting for one... It was so close. I spent too much time thinking about it, and it's too late now.

Mr. Typhlosion
26th June 2008, 8:29 AM
Probably the most noobish mistake ever. I used my Shiny Stone on Roselia too early, so I went to Serebii's Wi-Fi Chat for the first time ever. I looked for a Shiny stone, and some guy named Archie responded. I ended up trading my Shiny Magikarp for a stupid Shiny Stone. Thank god I grew a brain since then... but I still regret that.

29th June 2008, 7:04 AM
=P I regretted a lot of my actions in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.

Like choosing Chimchar with a Relaxed Nature. It was slow.... yes. -.-" I made a mistake there.

Another, is that removing Spark from my Luxray and replacing it with Thunderbolt.............. what? My Luxray was Modest-natured. o.o!

What else?
Well maybe teaching Rock Tomb to my Infernape is a big mistake as well, I could've just taught it to another one of my more powerful Pokemon. Or maybe Pokemon that were meant to use moves like that.
...........................................
Yay! I deleted the Rock Tomb from my Infernape (Another wasted TM ;~;)! I replaced it with Taunt, Lol.

But I never really got to use taunt in a battle so yeah. :\

I made a lot of regrets, I just can't keep track of exactly how many errors I made for me to regret on. :\

3rd July 2008, 1:52 AM
Ar: Gah... There's alot of things I regret. There is one, however, that I regret the most. I trained only my starting pokemon better than the rest of my team, and it's gap between levels compared to all my other pokemon is too big. Right now, my Empoleon is level 94, while the rest of my team ranges from level 61-66. I am still trying to lessen the gap, but it is taking forever...

2. Accepting hacked Pokémon in trades.
Serebii has converted me, so now I have a strong disbelief in hacked Pokémon.

Argon
3rd July 2008, 6:59 AM
Ar: I also have another regret. Early in the game, I had all of my pokemon by the time I left Eterna Forest. The only problem was, I never allowed a Flying type pokemon in my team and, as a result, ended up not being able to fly because I like my team set in a certain order. The only time I can fly is when I am training all of the pokemon I have captured. (I usually carry my Chatot, and I also have my Kricketune with me in case I find a rare wild pokemon. I also have my Empoleon with me for obvious reasons, and another pokemon from my team that I train also because I want to fill the level gap between my team and my starting pokemon.)

5th July 2008, 9:57 PM
My only regret (I believe) in my Pearl was when I was shiny chaining yesterday. I am totally new to this and I got lucky on my 19th Gloom when I saw a shiny patch. Unfortunately, it was walled off by some russling patches of grass, and the only path to it was going off the grass. I ended up restarting the chain because I thought that if you went off the grass it would break the chain. Man was I wrong, my friend told me your chain would continue if you went off the grass; I tested it and he was right. That is my story of my lost shiny Gloom -.-

HOWEVER.. I was chaining for a machop and I THOUGHT I had my adamant synchronize'd ralts with me but after I caught the shiny I realized I took the wrong ralts... I checked the machops nature and well.. yeh...

Long Post Alert, Long Post Alert, Long Post Alert, Long Post Alert Beep Beep Beep

I don't have any stories to tell apart from the time that I let my little sister beat the elite four for me. She's three and I died because she kept using thundershock which I still had for some reason. But another story or stories are my sort of friend's. He sucks at pokemon. Not being mean or anything but really. He killed ALL the legends in his game[leafgreen] and couldn't taught his Lv100 Charizard Rock Smash, Cut, Fly and Blast Burn. Fly seemed OK beside the hopeless moves he had for his poor Charizard[Lv100!!!]. He couldn't even beat the elite four after 150 hours of gameplay and still wouldn't be able to if I didn't help him. I taught Charizard Dragon Claw and got rid of cut and rock smash and replaced with flamethrower and earthquake. I also suggested training a Lapras for ice and water moves and body slam, a Jolteon, an Alakazam, A Gengar and a Machamp. After a few days a lv7 abra was Lv 50, a lv25 eevee was a lv50 jolteon and other wonders. He was an idoet and swapped jolteon and machamp out for a lv3 pidgey he wanted to train and a lv 10 Mr Mime. The elite four was beat using alot of revives and full restores. He was happy with himself even if I had just struggled againist the elite four that he would of lost to. Then he just carried on as if he didn't owe me. I still regret THAT. I suggeted a new game as he had pretty much stuffed his but he refused and I couldn't force him or he would do the same to my game which is a good game with all legends in the bag [PC] and with my team of EV trained LV 100 pokemon. I hate him now...

Not SRing for a good Azelf because I thought I had to finish the Sinnoh Dex to get a TRU Darkrai.

Things I regret:

-Using my Rockslide TM on Gallade, because I didn't know it could learn physical psychic-type moves.

-Wasting all my Battle Points on the TM for Toxic, which was taught to Roserade, then deleted in favour of a better move.

-Thinking Weavile learned Ice punch/shard by level up. My first Weavile, with an IV of 31 in attack, had to resort to Avalanche for a physical STAB ice move. Then, I bred for one with Ice Punch, but it's attack IV was ZERO. >_<
But now, I have another flawless attack Weavile with Ice Shard, so it's all good. ^_^

-Wasting Masterball on Dialga when I should have saved it for Cresselia...
-Wasting Shadow Ball on my level 34 Sneasle who I THOUGHT could beat Lucian
-Deleting Grass Knot on my Prinplup... I miss that move
-HAVING WINDOWS VISTA! Now WiFi won't work because it runs on XP... >=P

My regrets:

- Choosing Chimchar as my Starter >_>
- Wasting my Charge Beam TM on a Cresselia *headdesk*
- Collecting alot of Pokemon...I'm going to trade them all to Platinum when the time comes. Oh boy, I'm going to have so much fun catching a horde of Bidoof and Starly... >_>
- Not teaching my Shiny Eevee that I caught Baton Pass before evolving him into Umbreon :\
- Putting off my Dark mono-Team until now...
- Forgetting to transfer my Dark Pulse TM from my secondary game before restarting...
- Training a Cresselia *headdesk*

my biggest regret about the game isn't something I did, but something the programmers did. they took out the ??? type arceus.

I regret using the non-creative team of Staraptor, Infernape, Lucario, Roserade, Azelf, and Dialga to beat the E4.

I regret using the non-creative team of Staraptor, Infernape, Lucario, Roserade, Azelf, and Dialga to beat the E4.

:(

Why? Dialga on its own can beat the Elite four at the level its caught.

Restarted today. Spent half an hour catching an Abra, when one finally stayed in the pokeball, it was Adamant. Not really a regret so much as ANNOYING.

They should have programmed it so the natures most beneficial to a particular pokemon are the most common ones, and rationalised it as natural selection.

EDIT: And the second one I caught was Impish. Whats with all the Sp.Atk dropping natures on Abra? Also, if Abra sleeps for 18 hours a day, how come we never find a sleeping one?

EDIT the second: The third one was Adamant again. AAAARRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

EDIT the third: Rash now. I know that will make it more fragile than glass, but it'll also make it a frigging nuke machine.

I sold practically all my TM's, plus most of the evolutionary stones. I used all my shiny stones on Roselia's too, she is my favourite pokemon after all. Thank goodness for cloning, I guess.

New regrets!
I regret starting my game over, getting to the seventh badge, going to save... only to find out that I had never deleted my previous game. @_@

Oh yeah... and I regret not paying much attention while chaining hippopatus and spazzing because I saw a 'shiny' one, used my master ball... and then I realized that it was just the gender difference. x_X

I regret catching palkia and saving because I was so happy, only to check the PC box and find out his nature was impish, which decreases his best stat: special attack.

Wasting my grass knot on a female Pikachu in my japanese pearl and then wanting to transfer the attack to another Pikachu but realising that since I taught a female breeding it to another won't work.

Then doing the same mistake again in Pokemon Diamond later.=P

I deeply regret starting my game over, because I had a pretty sweet Empleon and that I didn't make any effort in getting the right natures for my team. It's not that good though, so I'm okay with having to start over. I think...

lol... that must hurt

The worst thing I did was waste my time training for the elite 4 to find it was a waste of time. I guess that doesn't really count for much.

I really regret evolving my porygon. Before I started playing competitively, I did it just for pokedex completion, and at the time I didnt realize how great a special sweeper I missed out on. Impish with the download ability just cant be salvaged into anything that will work.

Using TMs like Flash Cannon and Stone Edge i believe on a Steelix i never went on to use. Also using my Dialga to battle a bit.

LucaEddeh
17th August 2008, 2:53 PM
I got the usual "Using my masterball on Dialga" thing on my side. Mostly because I was rushing to get the Sinnoh Dex completed so I was SEVERELY underleveled for most battles. :P

There's also trading my shiny dratini for a shiny lugia. Now don't get me wrong, I love lugia, plus it was a legit one. What I regret is I had a friend who really wanted the shiny dratini, he just told me after he was palnning on trading it sometimes for a shiny I'd like. He says it's all fine but I can't help but feel bad about it since I had an object of his deepest pokémon desires and wasted it for mine. x:

I got tons of trading regrets, especially when it involves some actually working pokémons . Also GIVING AWAY one of my EQ Lucario for someone else who liked lucario alot and would love to get one, that out of pity the person used his EQ Tm... then I realized said person had Action Replay when he told me the day after he got Arceus. Gyah! I want my Bellycario back now. ): I could always breed anothe rone since I got my "master egg move males" for egg move breeding but still, I started EV train him. :Z

lawl this post is longer than I thought..
