    spammed with Rare Candies because I thought my Pokemon actually grew stronger.
    And Stat-moves that did not damage the oponent were useless.

    And, these aren't stories from my life, but this one 8-year-old kid at work likes to talk to me about pokemon. Among many others that I still haven't deciphered he's training up a Gavulanch and a Seeszoad.

    But I shouldn't talk. For years I was convinced that Gyarados was Guy-YAR-a-dose. And I was more than twice his age at the time. Just a lazy reader sometimes. Even recently, it took me forever to realize that there's only one "o" in Scolipede. Thought it was Scoliopede. xD

    I thought professor oak was god. That all changed when diamond and pearl came along. Bidoof became god.

    A very, very special credit to Rayce for giving me a timid thunderus ( the milos island one too.) after seeking it for half a year. He really did bend over backwards to get it to me, and I'm very grateful for that.

    just recently...did a trade back with my little cousin and he thought it would be funny to use the shiny AR code on it....little punk!!

    long story short, it could have potentially cost me a trading buddy if I hadn't have realized it.

    Lesson: Don't play Pokemon with family...its not worth it.

    Umm... is that really a stupid thing you thought/did when you were a kid? I mean, it was just a little while ago, and it was a stupid thing your cousin did, not you.
    I don't have a signature because I can't think of anything interesting to put in it. But hey, better than an enormous ugly banner that takes five seconds to scroll past, right?

    no it wasnt when I was a kid (although i still consider myself a kid at heart). it does none the less fit the profile because it was something stupid that I was involved with pertaining to pokemon

    I thought if you go to different Pokemon Centers, different Pokemon would be in the PC.

    Entering the bug contest on Pokémon silver, catching myself the first pokémon I saw, and then using cut on every grasspatch so no one could get a Pokémon, technically, I would win. But still lost. Hell, that was 10 years ago.

    I''ve been playing since Yelllow so as you could imagine, I have done a lot of foolish things in my time. Highlights of what I can rememner now include:

    G1 (Yellow, Red and Blue)

    When I was young and got my very first Pokemon game, like many others, I didn't know how to save. I caught a Pikachu and a Caterpie and then turned it off. when I found out, I cried my eyes out for the caterpie. I thought the poor thing had finally found a trainer only to be left alone again.

    I thought the SS Anna would leave as soon as you stepped of it, whether you had caught or not. In addition, I tended to forget about the bed there that could be used to restore your Pokemon so I basically had to fight a marathon every time I went there.

    Trained only a select few Pokemon. In any party, there would be a maximum of three high levelled Pokemon. My starter (Pikachu) A Nidoking/Queen and a Pidgeot. I was convinced that Pidgeot was the best Pokemon in the world and itd never let me down. Surprsingly, it very rarely did.

    Before I got my own game, I borrowed my friend's. I couldn't figure out how to do anythiing or catch anything so when he got it back in a week, it was still exactly as he had left it.

    Unlike a lot of people, I actually didn't buy into the Pikablue thing. I knew it wasn't real from the start. What confused me was why everyone else insisted that it was? And why they acted all upset when it turned out it wasn't.

    Could never figure out how to find the birds or Mewtwo.

    One of my friends abused glitches to get multiple Mewtwos. I insisted on taking him on in battle after battle even though I had no chance.

    G2 (Silver, Gold, etc)

    Never believed that Unowns were a real thing. Never caught the dogs ether. Not untiil many years later with SoulSilver.


    Couldn't figure out how to get past a certan animate tree and spent weeks wandering Goldenrod City until I lucked into it.

    Caught the Red Gyarados but never considered it to be special. Thought it was just a freak mutation from Team Rocket's experiment.

    On a related note, I didn't believe in Shinies. I had never seen one and so considered it improbable considering how long I had been playing.

    When my silver was damaged because I left it in my pocket and it got washed, I felt really guilty because of all the Pokemon I had doomed my entire team to never win the leagues. When I got a new silver, I decided to re-collect them assuming they'd be the same ones. ( And I was damned if I wasn't going to keep my word and give them a victory XD )

    3rd Gen

    Nothing really springs to mind at the moment. I was too isolated to really pick up on rumours like the whole space-thing. I am sure I made a lot of mistakes but I'll post them when I remember them.

    4th Gen.

    Just one mistake, but a rather big one. I forgot the 4th Gen existed. And I don't mean that to say I got bored or the or something. I literally forgot they ever existed. A whole generation of Pokemon I didn't recognise or remember. It was only later when I realized, ''My god, 4th gen exists

    5th Gen

    I still use A+B+Down when Catching Pokemon. I know it has no effect, but eh, habits die hard.

    I nicknamed a Pawniard Rodriguez because it sort of reminded me of this Mexican hitchiker from the movie "The Outsiders" which whipped out a switchblade in self defense against a white greaser who sucker punched him due to skin color. Funny thing is, I have mexican cousins, so this would create a quiet awkward dinner table moment at a family reunion if they ever found out...

    Only noob thing i can remember is raising only my Charizard in Red back in 98, zippo was lv 98 and my second highest was a lv 42 haunter. And not using stat boosting moves, I didn't use them until Dragon Dance opened my eyes to how useful they can be. Now I always have swords dance or dragon dance on pokes

    Does trading my Bellsprout for an Onix count? That was pretty stupid of me. ^^
