    Oh I remember, it took me so much time to actually know I was wrong.
    I thought that Special Attack meant moves that are super effective against and Special Defense was your defense for super effective moves.

    Well at the start of Unova when i saw Alomola I screamed out "LUVDISC EVO! FINALLY"
    I was wrong.
    I though starters were unbeatable so I only trained my starter,
    I thought if a PP of a move ran out you could never use it again no matter what.
    and many more

    When I was a kid I used to play Gold on an emulator - I didn't have a GBC and there was a guide in some magazine I used to buy back in the day so dad set it up for me. Anyway, whenever I picked my starter I didn't realize you're being asked to nickname it, so I would try to remember the Pokemon's name and then enter it in the nickname field. I didn't know about gyms so I would just run around until I found the Sudowoodo and I had no idea how to get past it, so I would restart the game and play it over and over again. Plus, I'm pretty sure I didn't know you could save the game anyway.

    ... All this can be explained with the fact that I didn't speak English back then.

    I thought that Gyarados was all powerful before Gen IV. I didn't realise that its Sp. ATK was horrible and all of its STAB moves were kinda weak.

    I used a master ball on caterpie.
    I used to teach my pokemon moves of their own type only.

    I also thought that Grass is weak to Psychic. Guess I just got used to Grass/Poison Pokémon.

    Before I knew anything about what Pokemon actually was, I saw an ad in some magazine (prob Nintendo Power) and I thought Pikachu evolved into Snorlax (similar ears) and that Snorlax's name was "Pokemon" and it was the most powerful.

    I remember my "melting theory." I noticed very early on that, despite still being "not very effective," Fire-type attacks would do a lot more damage to Rock Pokemon than Normal or Flying attacks would. I developed a theory that my Fire Pokemon were, in fact, melting down the Rock Pokemon into a molten liquid state. I couldn't think of any other reason for this phenomenon!

    You are almost correct about this one though. Rock-types usually (I said usually: Shuckle is a huge exception) have terrible Sp. Def. stats. Given that back then, Normal and Flying type moves were classed as physical while Fire type moves were classed as special, Fire-type moves would usually cause more damage than a Normal- or Flying-type move to the Rock-type. Though you could one-up this by using a Water- or Grass-type move anyway. Could be a good canonical method to explain why Fire-type attacks would do a lot more damage to Rock Pokemon than Normal or Flying-type attacks would. Also a good reason why Fire-type moves are classes as one of the five most powerful type of moves in Bulbapedia (reasonable coverage, but massive damage).

    I don't know if it's really all that ridiculous of an assumption, but I used to think Banette's zippered mouth was a row of yellow teeth with one really long tooth on one end.

    i will say that because of the tcg i thought that electric types were weak to fighting types. i didn't realise it wasn't until my friend pointed it out.

    I released my Nidoking in Pokemon Yellow because I didn't know what the word meant at the time.

    What a waste...

    I also thought that when you release a Pokemon, the Pokéball you used to capture it will return back to you, because its inhabitant is gone and I thought that you could reuse it.

    I love this idea, Nintendo should do this ASAP!

    As a kid I thought many things. I dont now. One thing, I thought faintged pokemon who are not one of mine DIED. (UNTIL I saw the anime) I also thought that ALL pokemon were genderless. (again the anime cleared this up for me) I thought also that maybe Pokemon were created by humans in a lab (no idea why I thought this XD)

    When I first played Emerald when I was little, I had no idea what the PC was. When I first opened the Pokemon Storage System, I thought it was a minigame or something. I thought you could only ever have 6 pokemon at a time.

    I was playing Platinum tonight, and remembered something so stupid that it made me facepalm: I thought that Pokerus was a bad thing. Even funnier was the fact that I knew what it was, but as soon as I learned that me Sudowoodo on Crystal had it, I forgot what it was, panicked, shoved it in the PC box and deleted my game. I regret it even now.

    At least now my reaction is just "Whoa, what? My <generic Pokémon here> has Pokerus? Cool!"

    Like some people in this thread, I once believed a lowering stat move was permanent. xP

    I thought Bidoof was a dog. At the time, my Poke's nicknames were what I thought they were (hence my Bronzor being called 'Thing'). When it evolved, Bidoof's line turned out to be beavers. So I had a beaver called 'dog' -.-

    Also, I somehow thought Mewtwo was supposed to have Wonder Guard. When I discovered Pokésav, I hacked a Mewtwo with Wonder Guard, and ever since I create overlord teams, my Mewtwo gets Wonder Guard...

    Even now, I mash A whenever I want a critical hit or to catch a Pokemon.
