I just lost the battle tower with a 99 streak!! Why!? I lost from a gengar that used destiny bond! I am mad! Im going to start again but I am kinda mad kinda laughing. Ive also had a lvl 51 shiny graveler down to 1hp using false swipe and it exploded. anyone got a story to top that. (yes my luck is horrible.)

Maybe its because it took you four years to come to the conclusion that there are HG/SS references in DPPt.

My worst luck ( or just me not being a pro at chaining ) is that when whenever I hit around the 30s with the Pokeradar, it just breaks for no reason, even if I find the right pokemon 4 blocks away. Atleast I still got my Shiny Togepi too bad synchronise didn't work... ;_____;

Also after hatching around 6 boxes of Eevees, I FINALLY get a Bold Eevee, with its highest IV in... Attack... THe parents don't even havee high attack IVs at all so all the other IVs... =__=

okay, now THAT is being mean xD

So far, my worst luck would have to be my 60+ eevee's I hatched before getting ONE timid eevee, and it had 0 Speed iv.

I've said this before somewhere but anyway this is what happened:

-I didn't know you could catch pokemon in double battles
-I was in Stark Mt. with Buck
-A wild magcargo and graveler appeared!
-Graveler: RAAAR!
-Magcargo: BAHWHOOOR! *ZZING!*
-[my name] used one dusk ball!
-It's impossible to aim!
-Oh s**t.
-Got away safely!

Random PBR. My Fire team ended up against someone being cheap with two scarfed Kyorge...

In the handhelds, though, I've been quite lucky. The worst luck I've had would be the Elite Four scoring critical hits far too often and defeating me as a result.

I hate when that happens, those mo**** f*****s are sure to take 2 out of 3 pokemon down.

I spend more than half an hour trying to get points at the game corner for TM Explosion and i realized i ws doing it wrong...

Finding a Gengar and an Aerodactyl trainer in the battle tower just before fighting the tycoon for the second time.

My worst luck was probaly in a pokerader for a shiny zubat at route 204 and finding one at 34 and running out of pokeballs, and on my way to the pokemart running into a shiny budew but with no balls.

OK, I was fighting Cynthia, sweeping her pretty well until Togekiss. That Togekiss took down everyone in my team except Tentacruel and someone else. Tentacruel was the last Pokemon I used, and it fainted on ROSERADE. THE LAST POKEMON I EXPECTED TO LOSE TO. It was her last Poke; Tentacruel could have KO'd it with one more Sludge Bomb. "The foe's ROSERADE used Extrasensory!" "TENTACRUEL fainted!" "(name withheld) is out of usable Pokemon!" "... (name withheld) blacked out!" I could have screamed. I was so close to winning, and lost.

lmao

I haven't really had any real bad luck in 4th gen... Um... It's hard for me to find Ditto sometimes, when I'm trying to Synchronize... and I once chained 27 or so Absol trying to get a shiny one, then lost the chain... That's about as bad as my luck's gotten in the games.

Battle Arcade fight #33. My team of Swampert, Latias and Salamence got taken out by a Pidgeot and its Facade (I paralyzed it as part of the what ever). I dominated the entire thing up to that point with my Swampert only fainting to the brains Ludicolo. Now I can't get past the brain as her Medicham and its Zen Headbutt keeps taking out what ever i bring.

That sounds very familiar except the move was Guillotine and it was used by a Kingler. Battle Tower hax at its worst.

The only ones i can think of were missing out on a few shinies;

1. Shiny Rattata on LG when i just started and didn't have any balls.
2. Shiny Bidoof and Phanpy on P i forgot to trade over before i restarted.

There's probably more but i have bad memory.

Actually this was my worst loss, and luck either....

In Platinum I was battling Cyrus when my Pikachu fainted from Crobat I thought that was my last Pokemon so I shut my game offf when I relized that I had others. That battle was HARD! It took me the whole night to beat him when I finally got lucky.

If this is in Battle Arcade, I'm calling shenanigans. There is no way you can use a Palkia or a Shaymin in the Battle Frontier whatsoever.

Everytime I go to the Battle Hall, I experiance bad luck. I battled the lady 3 or 4 times, and one time she sent out a Latios! Because of battle hax, I can never win. ;_;

31st January 2010, 4:42 PM
It took me 5-6 atempts to beat Cyrus in Platinum, losing to Cythnia second attempt (her Roserade was in the thin red), and having my rival ahead of me through most of story.(In levels that is)

Losing a shiny Giratina to struggle. I've told this story so many times, but it's so sad. I wasn't even trying to get a shiny! ;_;

for me it was when i was escorting marley through the cave in platinum.so the battles are all double meaning you cant catch them.so when i was looking for the entrance,Guess what i found? 2 azumarills ,but guess what else? one was SHINY!

I hated that day:(

Blisseys walling me in the Battle Tower. Every time I would lose against a Blissey.

So I decided to change my team around and counter with my own Blissey.
Still lost.

I wouldn't say it's my worst luck ever.. Just a real pain.

Started a new game on Platinum. Traded over a level 8 Leafeon to use as my starter (as something different) and caught a Magickarp in Jubilife City. I got into a trainer battle against a Kricketot and he knocked out my Leafeon with bide. I was stuck in a battle with Kricketot who only knew bide and grown and Magickarp who only knew splash. I turned off the game before I realised I hadn't saved it yet... Why couldn't Leafeon critical hit that Kricketot :(

Found Shiny Starly while EV training my new shiny Pachirisu i got from GTS. I heard one sparkle, i heard a second sparkle, i tapped attack, spark not thinking of paying attention. No more Starly. I thought.. oh bugger. I wanted a Shiny Starly so I could train it into a Staraptor :(

Your game saves automatically after a wireless trade, I dont see the problem here.

Running into a Bidoof.... But all in seriousness

I was training my team in a cave somewhere, and then I fainted xP so i went to buy some items and I was broke ><, so I was a little troubled.

Another one was that I ran into a shiny and I accidently KO'D it.

Went fishing and 19 times consecutively didn't even get a nibble

11th February 2010, 5:35 PM
I lost my Platinum and Pearl, because they got lost while moving. Diamond was in my DS so that wasn't lost. I had only had Platinum for about a week so I didn't even get to see that many new things Like the Distrortion world which I still know almost nothing about.
Other than that, catching shinies is something I am having no luck at all. I get my chain up to almost 30 and I'll go to a spot 4 spots away even wiggling the same way and the chain will just break for no reason. The worst part is that the pokemon that breaks the chain is often the one that was the chain. It makes no sense to me and is causing a lot of frustration.

Same thing happened to me but in Stark Mountain with Buck. Shiny magcargo.

The worst thing was that I later found out that it would have been possible to catch it, had I killed Buck's pokemon and the other double battler so that it was just me and the shiny on the battlefield...

GAAAAAAAAAH! *smashes an innocent snail against a rock*

- A PI with a Seaking on Route 214 hitted me with horn drill 3 times FFFFUUU- ;__;
- Battle tower Hax (everyone hates it)
- EV training pokemon but with bad IVs (i never know what are IVs before DX )
- A shedinja breaking your battle hall or tower streak (only if you're not prepared for a super effective move on it)
- Shiny pokemon appears but NO pokeballs
- I was doing a cascoon chain in eterna forest but a budew broked it.

24th February 2010, 9:20 PM
Worst luck moments... hmm

Mainly doing chains i have to say.

- I had a 40 chain of Pinsir once... i was tired as it was like 2 am and my finger slipped while resetting the radar... Ariados.
- I had a 39 chain of Voltorb once... it broke on one of the safest patches ever to a Gastrodon.
- I had a 38 chain of Beldum once... i misjudged the distance of a patch and ended up walking into a chain breaking patch.
- I encountered a shiny Beldum once... only to accidentally press the Run option because i was really nervous what with it's only move being take down and it's low PP, it had also started to use struggle... struggle does more than i thought it did... the ridiculous catch rate did not help my nerves.
- i had a 38 chain of Chansey once... i had to shut the game off otherwise i would have missed my bus and i needed to take my DS and it's battery was low. No time to charge =(

I have avenged and caught all of these now... apart from the Chansey. I was after Lucky Eggs the high chain was luck.

Oh and the amount of times i have moved to a perfectly safe patch when i can see all the ones that shook and my starting patch and the chain has broke to the thing i was chaining!!! GRR that REALLY grinds my gears! I mean seriously! It happend 4 times in a row the other day!!!! Usually on edge patches which i really don't understand why they have to be different from other patches.

Apart form these and typical battle frontier related stuff i've been extremely lucky in my games. Shiny Charmander on 11th egg certainly made up for these annoyances.

First time challenging Champion Cynthia in Platinum. She was on her final Pokemon, Roserade and I was on my final Pokemon, Infernape with a little less than half HP. I use Fire Punch an attack first. Roserade survives with 1 HP. Roserade uses Extrasensory. Infernape faints.

25th February 2010, 4:22 AM
when i was in a frontier battle my opponent and me had 1 pokemon left.mines had like half hp and theirs full, i used 1 move(4got), it almost fainted but had like 10 left,then he attacked my pokemon and it fainted...

Oh god...this JUST happened 5 minutes ago. I was training my Jirachi holding the Leichi berry against a Wormadam. And it uses an attack. It steals my freakin' berry and eats it! FFFFFUUUUUUUU-!!!! Can you get another Leichi berry in the game? If not then, I'm pretty ticked. GRRRRR!

11th March 2010, 10:47 PM
Obviously, the battle frontier. Yesterday I had my highest streak ever in the Battle Arcade, and came up against a team which had NO chance of beating me whatsoever...except that the board switched our teams.

Battle Factory, battle 49 against Thorton for the gold print. I lead with Yanmega (Speed Boost; Signal Beam, Air Cutter, Detect, Double Team), with my other two being Tyranitar and Starmie, and he leads with...Registeel. I know I'm dead if he kills Tyranitar with Iron Head/Earthquake or manages to set up Curse, so I switch to Starmie. It's OHKO'd on the switch by a critical hit Thunderpunch.

I switch to Tyranitar (Dragon Dance, Earthquake, Crunch, Stone Edge), knowing that the only way I'll win the match is by setting up Dragon Dance on Registeel. He alternates between Thunderpunch and Ice Punch for hardly any damage, I manage to set up four Dragon Dances. I figure I can KO anything in the Factor with Earthquake and Crunch, so I don't have to rely on Stone Edge's terrible accuracy. I KO Registeel with Earthquake with about a third of my health left.

Thorton sends out Glalie. I laugh, because Glalie is terrible. I use Crunch, and...I miss. It's the Lax Incense Glalie. He sets up Hail. I use Crunch, and I miss AGAIN. He KO's with Blizzard. I switch to Yanmega, try to use Detect to stall out the turns of Hail so Blizzard can actually miss, but obviously, no such luck, and I die to a Blizzard. I missed getting my gold print because my godly 4x Dragon Danced Tyranitar missed with a 100&#37; accurate move. Twice.

26th March 2010, 5:00 PM
Oh gosh. Where to start? I actually have quite a few horror stories. 2 of which belong to my bf but I was there so..yeah..

After spending hours of chaining and frisking Chansey I finally find one with a lucky egg. It was a happy day indeed when I thieved it from the pink blob. Made training so much easier! Then as I was training a Togepi the battle went sort of like this: Wild Pokemon appears! Togepi uses Metronome! Togepi uses Fling! FFFUUUUUUU!!!

After spending yet another massive amount of time playing the game I finally catch a shiny Spinda. Relieved, I decide to take a break and switch off my DS. Oh..wait..what? N-no!! I forgot to save!!

Not really in game but..I go to Gamestop to buy a used copy of Pearl. I get home and the game barely works. And it's full of hacks!!

Bad things happen in Pokemon kids.

26th March 2010, 10:35 PM
Hmm, let's see...

Mine would have to be chains breaking in the high 30's. Its such a pain in some cases to get them that high, and then have them break that close to 40 is just so irritating.

Two words......... Light ball............The 1st time I played Platinum I managed to find it one my 1st try, so when I decided to restart I foolishly thought that it would be just as easy to find. Cue 15 hours of constant searching for Light ball wielding Pikachu..............suffice to say I haven't restarted since.

Grrr. This happened just now. >:| I have my newly hatched Togepi holding my Exp. Share. And then I used Metronome. And the move that it used was the sh*t move Fling. And then it threw the Exp. Share away and now I don't freaking know how to get it back. :( WHY, TOGEPI? Exp. Share is my favorite item out there. WHY, OH WHY? You turned into the psyho Togepi in that episode in Sinnoh. I hate you.

My worst luck would be when I finally caught a legit shiny Staravia out of random(no chainning, I fail at that), but the game was originally my brothers and he went and traded it for Pearl. He thought I wanted that one more, but I'd rather keep the shiny but nooo...

I also traded my Cradily over to my Pearl. His name was Dean and I loved that pokemon. But..me being stupid restarted the game for who knows what reason and lost him. D':
