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.
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.
The red and blue rumor that you could use strength on the truck near the S.S. Anne and get mew.

I thougt water was super effective on fighting, because Machop appeared in caves, like Geodude.

I used a master ball on caterpie.
I used to teach my pokemon moves of their own type only.
String Shot + Silver Wind + Aerial Ace + Gust on
Surf + Dive + Waterfall + Muddy Water on

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!

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.
Yeah, Pokémon's cool.
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.
The Doctor: 'People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually*
from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.'
In other words: Time is Complicated.
I released my Nidoking in Pokemon Yellow because I didn't know what the word meant at the time.
My shiny Pokemon:
111 eggs (Also my 649th Pokemon) 194 eggs
I love this idea, Nintendo should do this ASAP!Originally Posted by Azimuth1011
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!"
This is Bidoof. Many people loathe it with their lives. If you are of the few people who love this little beaver, put this in your sig. Started by Earth Wolf-Howl (formerly Warrior Scolipede)

I have claimed Pyroar!
I thought rattata's last evolution was rhydon
I used to think Mewtwo evolved into Mew. XD
No one hears muffled screams. No one sees faded tears.
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...

I first thought PC meant Personal Computer.
