hah, this brings back so many memories for me!
when i was a kid and 1st gen RBY was around, i kept hearing about the pikablu rumor, and the truck in vermillion, pushing it with HM Strength and finding the sleeping mew. so many great memories and rumors were floating around back then.
one of the most stupid things i remember ever doing was using my one and only master ball to catch articuno. looking back on that, i felt incredibly foolish. now these days remembering the frustration and anger i felt as a kid, it was pretty stupid.
i think the best rumor i had ever heard that i was really gullible with, one of my class mates had told me that if you use the item finder in the right spot inside mount moon, that you'd find togepi...in first gen! yet another moment of stupidity on my part. it was actually pretty bad because i spent at least a solid week trying to find that rather "elusive" togepi.
another great rumor that seemed to have stuck on me, and sort of shaped how i still play pokemon; "if you give them a nickname, they will not like you as much and they will have lower stats!". since i was a kid, that one just about gave me nightmares hahaha!
