    Right now the only thing I can think of is thinking that Lickitung was a gen 2 pokemon and arguing over my older brother about it XC

    Now that I think about it more, I remember some things I thought were untrue about typing due to gen 1 pokemon games. Like, I used to think they made Psychic types way more OP in terms of what they are actually super effective against. Like due to most grass types also being poison types & the only ghost types around were poison types, I thought Psychic & Ghost were super effective against each other (-_- what would be the point in that...) & that they were also super effective against grass types. I actually argued this also with my older bro & went out of my way to fight a Tangela to prove him wrong(but I was pretty embarrassed to find out otherwise), because back then it just made since for Psychic to be super effective to grass types to me for some reason.

    Hmm...well I just remembered a rather stupid thing I did while breeding in B2

    I wanted a Hippodon with Slack Off so I bred one with the nature I wanted, EV trained it, leveled it to 50, AND THEN went to it's serebii page....and found out it was an egg move...

    So needless to say I had to redo the entire process.
    To lack fear is stupidity, to face it is bravery.

    I just remembered a few more stupid things I used to do in Pokémon:

    -I used the previously-mentioned A and B trick, before adding Down because someone claimed that. I still do that today as a force of habit.

    -I didn't know shinies were that special, so when I found a shiny Gulpin, I returned to the route I found it on later in Emerald, thinking I would find another if I stepped on a certain tile. Then I got rid of my Ruby. I still regret that.

    -I always used offense moves, so that my Cyndaquil's moves in PMD:EoT were Flamethrower, Flame Wheel, Dig and Tackle. Not kidding about that last one.

    -Used my Master Balls on Articunos, Absols, and all manner of more common Pokémon. I learnt after a while.

    -I was, for some odd reason, afraid of the Poison status and never played Blue after it happened to my Blastoise. I must have thought it would refuse to battle for me if it fainted again or something.

    -This is something that happened recently (and still does), but as I like to use Pokémon I like competitively, I often end up with an entire team of five sweepers and one tank. I've tried to fix that in my most recent team, though.

    -Also recently- I entered the level 100 faction of the Battle Tower in Sapphire to find myself massively overlevelled... And by massively overlevelled, I mean that my highest levelled Pokémon was a level 53 Banette in a group of level 100s. (Don't ask how I defeated the Champion's level 58 Metagross.) I should have probably seen it coming, but I didn't.

    On that topic, I also taught some of the TMs I needed for my planned team to my ingame team.

    -Another current thing of stupidity- I'm terrible at creating movesets, but I refuse to use Smogon's help. The result is as expected.

    To be honest I'm not a big fan of shinies myself.

    To me they are nothing but miscolored Pokémon.

    I know they're rare though, but yeah. I don't find shiny Pokémon to be anything special myself. The only difference between shiny and regular Pokémon is the color and that's it.

    Thunder wave
    Thunder
    Thunderbolt
    Flash

    Charizard
    Flamethrower
    Fire Spin

    I used to think that Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos all merged together to form Lugia.

    I thought that when the "neo" series of Pokemon Cards came out, with gen 2 pokemon, that they were all rare, because my friend told me such.

    All offensive movesets pretty much until I was 23.

    Not realizing HM moves were permanent, and playing through the game with a Cut Charizard.

    When I started collecting the cards, I had all Topps cards and thought they were so cool until the kids with the real cards blatantly told me that mine weren't ****.

    I played through Gen V.

    I used Brain Boy to edit Pokemon in G/S. I had a flying Diglet just so I can see it on Pokemon Stadium. I also had flying Venusaur.

    Having the power to edit the moves of any Pokemon I had to literally any move, thus being able to create perfect move sets, I basically had Mew and a bunch of starters/ cool pokes with Hydro Pump, Thunder, Fire Blast, Hyper Beam, thinking that these were the best sets.

    Not knowing what STAB was until I was 22.

    Having a full team of Rattattas because they reminded me of my dog.

    Not evolving my starter from it's first for to it's second until it was in its 30s and nearly ready to lvl up to final form. Someone told me that unevolved pokemon level up faster. I did this till I was 23, when someone on my last deployment pointed out to me that it was false. That's right, we played pokemon in the desert.

    Assossiating pokemon types with the types of their cards instead of the actual types. So Gengar was psychic, rocks and grounds were fighting, etc.

    Though to be fair there is a good reason not to evolve a Pokémon immediately.

    Most unevolved Pokémon learn a specific move a couple of levels before its evolved form.

    And in some cases, like with Trapinch and Larvesta the evolved form doesn't learn the move they learn by level up at all.

    Yeah... I do like the aesthetic change, but it would be better if they still had great IVs like in Gold and Silver. Either way, I mostly regret it because of the rarity.

    I know what you mean man, when I first used action replay to get infinite rare candies (I was like 7 years old), I had no idea that they barely increased the Pokemon's stats... Now I prefer to play without cheats, since the point of the game is to grind, battle, catch, learn about strategies, etc.

    *Thinking that if you beat a shiny, you can always find it again, not knowing of the 1/8156 chance (something like that?)
    *Deleting your game will let you catch all your Pokemon again.
    *Slowbro- Slowking thing XD
    *Deleting my Pearl that had a lvl 80 Jirachi, shiny Pichu, AND shiny bulbasaur (i didnt hack any of them, i got a venusaur from some idiot i know XD)
    *That shinies were EXTREMELY overpowered (alas, i found out when my brother beat my shiny Kricketune)
    *That your pokemon die when they reach lvl 100 or you overbreed (I was scared when i bred a Luxray too much, and when my Salamence reached 100 D: )
    *Wasted a masterball on a Caterpie (pain in the butt to get Lugia DX)
    Started playing when i was 5-6, and I'm getting X and a 2ds this week.

    Who wouldn't be? The fact that a small fish completely unrelated to octopuses evolves into one would confuse anybody.

    I always thought that the red spots on my Tentacool card were his eyes (This was before I got any games. The card also didn't show the eyes very well, so yeah)

    The stupidest thing I remember was trying to produce some sort of metronome beat using Kingler's cry in the pokedex (like his cry goes "pun chen ohn ohn", and I just went "pun chen, pun chen, pun chen, pun pun pun chen, pun chen, pun chen, pun pun pun chen...and so on).

    PS: this was the best written onomatopoeia I could come up with.

    well lets see :
    i thought groudons name was ruby
    i thought the amulette coin was the key to finding said ruby ( i had NEVER played pokemon before, always wanted to but no console to play it on, and the point of that game to me was groudon)
    latias hid in some secret room at the back of the safari zone
    there was a secret part of the leaf green safari zone where every single pokemon could be caught
    i could somehow get my hands one venastoise
    pikachu was the best pokemon in existence
    the master ball was simply a myth
    i wasnt the brightest kid so i didnt understand the game and thought it was a lot more lke the anime , so i worried if a pokemon didnt like me it would run away
    and thats all i remember

    One stupid thing I did is that using electric types on a ground type Pokémon when I first play the game. The other one is that I trained my Yungerer and raised to level 100 while I was expecting it will evolve into a Foodin. At that time I did not know that trading is required for evolution.

    I used to think that moves taught to a Pokémon through a TM or HM wouod be weaker than learned by levels. But the reason for that is because of stats.

    When gen 4 came out when I was little, I thought Pachirisu was a legendary because it had no evolution (I assumed a pokemon had to have no evolution to be legendary) and in the gen 4 pokedex book, Pachirisu's page had stars and everything XD

    So of course, I went around telling everyone Pachirisu was a legendary and refusing to listen to anything else anyone told me
