    I knew nothing about IVs 'till gen 4. Even now I'm not sure I understand them. :P

    Lol, same here.
    I've learned about EV's and IV's in HGSS.
    And I'm playing since Red and Blue.

    Thought if I beat the E4 in the originals 50 times, I'd get a Mew. Massive waste of time.

    If you bred mew with a missingno, you'll get mewthree

    I saved all the time. Literally. After pretty much every two or three steps I made, I saved the game. Twice. Three times. Four times. And more. Just to make sure I wouldn't lose anything if I rebooted the game.

    Ah, the things you do as a kid...
    natie respect Takahashi Meijin. He is Champion. He can push a button continuously no less than 16 times in 1 second. It's sooooooooooooo great!!

    I knew all the type matchup, even the more strange and uncommon ones. I knew what moves were bad, no matter how good they looked. I knew about shinies from the start. I knew every pokemon's types, it evolutionary relatives, and how to evolve it. I didn't just stick with STAb moves. I knew how every move and item worked. I never listened to the anime if it didn't seem to fit. I didn't listen to any rumors. I trained my pokemon as evenly as possible.

    But, I knew nothing, and now know barely anything, about IV's, EV's, and anything related to such.

    - I used to try to avoid trainers because I didn't know that was what the game was about. When I came back to the same place after the E4, I found myself battling something like a level 12 gastly with my level 80 starter.
    - Also, I used to only put stab moves on my pokemon unless they hadn't learnt enough moves. If a grass pokemon knew 3 grass moves and one water move and wanted to learn another grass move, I would delete the water move in favour of the grass move.

    I have claimed Relcihav!
    Okay, I know it's not real, but that's not going to stop me.
    Relcihav was made by me; no stealing. Thanks to Pingouin7 for making it transparent.

    I actually still do this when I play. I just feel assured that if I mess something up I can restart the game and start over again.

    My first Pokemon game was Gold version, and I was only 10, so I made a lot of dumb mistakes.

    1. I made a lot of the one-of-a-kind Pokemon faint. Sudowoodo, Red Gyarados, etc.
    2. I used a Master Ball on a Rhyhorn because I thought I could get another one.
    3. I only trained my starter, Feraligatr.
    4. I thought moves that did not do direct damage were pointless.
    5. I thought the locked entrance to the underground cycling road in Kanto (the one going under Saffron City) was a house you unlocked with a key. In the house, you could catch the other two Johto starters. No idea where I came up with this.
    6. I wasn't even aware of Celebi's existence until about a year or more later.

    ah the fun and stupid times we had as a kid. im glad a lot of people are posting all these stupid things that they've done that we can now all look back on and laugh about it.

    another thing i just remembered that i did was when i played my first pokemon game which was gold, i think i was about 7. i dont know why i never got red/blue but oh well.
    but anyway i started a new game, walked out into the town and just walked around there for probably half an hour without a clue on what to do. then later i asked my neighbour what to do and when he said that you walk out of the town...well i felt really stupid.

    I once trained a physical sweeping Ledian to level 42, before I realised how stupid it was.

    I have left Serebii for greener pastures. These pastures, to be specific.

    I thought every attack could hit every time in the games.
    I pretty much didn't know that attacks had accuracies.

    I thought Mewtwo was Mew's father...and then I saw the movie and still didn't get it.

    I used to only train my starter
    I used to think that healing at a pokemon center many times in a row gave it more HP
    I didn't know that when you bred pokemon the pokemon species was the species of the mother (I thought if you bred two compatible but different species it was random which species)

    I thought you could go to the moon in Ruby and Sapphire when the space station's successful launch number was 100. I even checked everyday, until it went over 100 I really wanted deoxys.

    looks like you did what i did too. actually just a couple days ago i checked ruby coz i wanted to see what pokemon i had on there. i went to the space station and it was up to 9,999 successful launches.
    but yes...i believed the internet too many times back in the days.

    I believed that too though I can't remember why. I believe my little brother tried it and got bored waiting so I actually waited for it to get to 100 and when nothing happened I was so sad.

    I use to believe moving the truck you had to surf to in R/B/Y triggered an encounter with mew.

    woopee. was waiting for one of these kind of topics.
    1. when i had my ruby, i thought special attack (sp atk), special defence (sp dfc) didnt mean nothing, since i didnt understand the sp. so, i just released every pokemon with their highest stat being sp attack/defence. i only kept the ones with defence and attack. -__-
    2. also on ruby, remember that trick house, right above slateport city? yeah, well, i couldnt get past it. i got very mad, so i decided to see if i can catch a lot of pokemon to make an army, then have them destroy everyone inside. there is a ton of minun and plusle to the right of it, so i caught about 50 each. yeah..then i realized i could only have 6 in my party.
    3. on diamond, i had no idea how to get to snowpoint city. i thought that one of those rock-climb walls would get me there, but noo. i finally decided to try one of the entrances to mount coronet, and thankfully it led to snowpoint. arghh. stupid rock climb walls.
    well, thats all the experiences that i could think of right now lol
    When in doubt, pinky out!
    these final days til' heartgold/soulsilver come out will be devastating.......

    I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    I used to go through the list of Pokemon and just plan my future team around the ones I wanted the most. The list got to be about 60-ish (1st Gen) before I read that trainers could only have 6 Pokemon...

    That there was a glitch in R/B where you could get Togepi in Mt. Moon (Can't remember exactly what i was supposed to do, but i spent an hour or so trying it)

    Before the name Ho-oh was revealed in English my friend told me and my other friends that it's name was Perokajalamara :/ yeah i know... weird then it turned in to Horu/Huroo (which i still think is better than Ho-oh XD)
