    My proudest moment was catching all the Legendary Birds, in LeafGreen, with just Poké Balls! I was so proud of myself! I was also proud in Ranger (it is classed as a 3rd Gen game) when I caught the Legendary Beasts at the Fiore Temple!
    nothing lasts forever, but this is getting good now.

    My proudest moments were:
    -Catching my first shiny, Nincada (WOOT! 2 For The Price Of 1!).
    -Getting one Gold Symbol, and 4 Silver Symbols, in the Battle Frontier.
    -Catching Feebas by myself
    -Completing the National Dex (apart from event ledgendaries, Mew, Celebi etc...)
    -Beating the Elite 4 with a Lv 68 HM slave (really)

    Ruby: I saw my very first shiny, a Psyduck.
    Sapphire: I saw 4 shinies before even making it to Lavaridge! (I think my game was glitched or something...)
    Emerald: I made it to Pike Leader Lucy (but I couldn't beat her)

    Hmm...Catching Latias with a Pokeball, when it was in green.
    Getting a Blaziken before the third gym.
    Getting through the game using nothing but Blaziken and HM slaves.
    Playing for 300+ hours on my Emerald before the data was erased.
    Catching Rayquaza for the first time in Ruby before I left for a Soccer game.
    Winning said Soccer game. =D
    Catching the three Regis in under an hour, all together. Regice took about 10 minutes, steel about 10 minutes, and rock about half an hour.

    I can't really think of anything else. Most of those are from my old Ruby, which I gave to my best friend, and my Sapphire. Emerald is still probably my favorite, though. My max time on Emerald was 318 hours (I think, I always get it and my Sapphire confused. One of them was 200-something, one of them 318.)

    When I defeated Wallace..It was so easy,and it was the first time I beat a Champion.
    When I caught Regice with a Timer ball I almost ran out of balls too.

    Started out with Gold, but Gen. III is around when it became an addiction, so there were some good times.


    First shiny seen/caught - Paras

    First lv. 100 - Blaziken

    Finally playing the original adventure (in general).

    Getting 4 shinies (Sableye, Zubat, Electrike and Zigzagoon, in that order), not to mention that I got the Electrike and Zigzagoon in the same week. Other than that, completing the Pokedex from 1-202.

    The proudest moment I have had was when:
    - I caught Groudon in Emerald, because I saved after killing him in Ruby.
    - Catching a Modest Feebas
    - Beating the Elite 4, for the first time
    - Capturing Rayquaza
    - Beating Lucy for the Silver Symbol (My first symbol)
    - I was given access to all Seven Islands (FR/LG)
    - Catching Mewtwo & Legendary Dogs
    - Catching all 386 Pokemon in Ruby (5 Shinys) to only have the game "kick the bucket" a few months later.

    Ok, in Leaf green, i didn't know there wasn't time. I thought I could evolve this one eevee into an espeon or umbreon.
    so I go into the elite four for the second time. That's when everything grows like 10 levels higher.
    The easy thing would be to just white out and escape... but I was so focused on getting that eevee to like me that i didn't want it to faint.
    It took me so long, and wasted so many full restores, but I finally made it through. now, that eevee is a vaporeon, and has become my second favorite pokemon.

    Hey! Me getting a shiny Shuppet is also one of my proud moments (although sadly I no longer have my dear evolved Banette...I transferred it to my Emerald and yet that game got jacked) Another proud moment of mine was just going through the elite four with only Blaziken, Altaria, and Linoone :] Yeah those were the awesome times...

    My proudest moment was finally encountering Latias. I started the game purely because I was driven to have her. I had Emerald and saved myself a lot of training by catching Rayquaza with an Ultra Ball before I'd even gotten my 8th Gym Badge. My Level 48 Aggron was a big help for this.

    Ironically though, the 8th gym was a Water Gym and I managed to beat 4 of his 5 Pokémon with a Level 41 Wailord that I'd caught 10 minutes before I challenged him, that had evolved from a Level 40 Wailmer. XDDD Weird. Anyway, I was able to beat the Elite 4 with the Rayquaza by using lots of potions and revives. My other Pokemon were no match. (They are now.)

    I then went to catch Groudon that I managed to do with a Timer Ball in 3 tries (soft resets) and then went down to catch Kyogre. That one took me about 27 tries but I got him with an Ultra Ball. I actually encountered Latias in the middle of trying to catch Kyogre, I was on that route that rains a lot, heading to a Pokemon Mart to buy more Ultra Balls because I was finding I didn't have enough when trying to catch Kyogre.

    It was then that I encountered Latias and it was love at first sight. It's kind of funny because I knew she could show up at any time then and I was so involved with something else I wasn't expecting her. I easily caught her with the Master Ball I saved for her and now she's at level 72.

    Other proud moments:
    - Catching Shiny Koffing on Fiery Path
    - Getting this psychic feeling that I was about to encounter a shiny. It was so bizarre. I just knew that my game was like ready to issue one. I had this strange vibe and I felt like I was in an X-Files episode and every Pokemon I encountered made my heart skip a beat. Surely enough, 15 minutes later when I'd forgotten about it and was just playing around in the water near Petalburg City, I encountered a shiny Level 16 Marill. Because I hadn't taken myself TOO seriously, I had failed to go grab any Pokemon that wouldn't faint it on first attack. I had 4 Ultra Balls, 2 Timer Balls, and a Premier Ball. Incredibly lucky for me, I caught it with full HP and no status ailments on my 2nd Ultra Ball. I knew I couldn't soft reset.
    - Going to the Safari Zone at least like 15 times in search of a female Pikachu. All the females would run away and I'd just keep catching male ones. I had 4. XD When I finally caught a female Pikachu early in my 15th Safari Zone venture, I just ran around to waste my steps and see what else I could encounter. I ended up encountering another female Pikachu and catching that one too, so I had 6. One of the females had a Light Ball with her. I ended up breeding my two females with two of the males and got two Pichus, a male one from the pair without the light ball, and a female one from the pair with the female with the light ball. She had Volt Tackle, so I ended up training her and leveling her up, evolving her into a Raichu, and making her really powerful. I then decided to give her a bunch of pokeblocks and made her Cool go way up high, but still not maxed out. She positively dominated at the Cool competitions. When I got to Master Class though, I struggled because I was in last place all the time for appearance because I hadn't been able to max out her Cool. On my 5th try, I got REALLY lucky and dominated at the talent portion and was able to pull off a win. She got a Master Class ribbon, and then someone wanted to draw her and put her picture in the museum, and not only could I visit, she got a cool ribbon for that as well. I was really proud of me and her. She has 13 ribbons now from various contests and other things, AND she's a great fighter. It's hard to get both with one Pokemon.
    - Catching all the legendaries sans Latias (and Regigas who I haven't gone after) without a Master Ball.
    - Beating the Elite Four with all the Pokemon I'd raised myself. (No Lvl 70 legendaries.)
    - Blending berries with the Berry Master and filling my Pokeblock container with Gold Pokeblocks.
    - When Latias "couldn't possibly love me any more."

    Hahaha, wow. That was really long. I bet nobody reads it or I get scolded or something. Oh well. It was really nice to get all that out and share it.

    My Linoon is now level 70 which now means i can find master ball much easier

    Well, the funniest thing was, i went in all prepared...Trapinch with 'Arena Trap' (at the time, i forgot that Arena Trap doesnt work on Latias, lol), lots of pokeballs + ultraballs...Then all it took was one ball and no attacks... I couldnt believe my luck...

    My proudest was getting my first Blaziken. I thought it was so cool (I still do) and I was really happy when I finally got one, I still use one on all of my teams. Another one would be beating the E4 with just that Blaziken, that was great. And the only other one that really sticks out was catching my first shiny in a GBA game, a Sunkern in the Safari Zone, making it all the more great.

    Today I had a proud moment on my Ruby Version.I came across a shiny Electrike and managed to catch it(first one I've seen/caught).Found it on Route 110 with a Mild nature(decent for a Sp.Sweeper) and Lightning Rod ability(Static would of been better).It looks so cute IMO.
