    When I first obtained my very own pkmn game which is Ruby/Sapphire, I actually had no idea on how to play the game in which I ended up attacking the target with physical attacks, at that time I didn't use any lowering stats attack since I was still a newbie to the game. Until one of my friend advice that game is not all about doing physical attacks with a target that is the time I felt stupid to myself
    Yeah I know there was a lot of hate towards Girlfriend (Kari), but I'm really not planning to drop it cause if I do that it will also mean that I'm dropping the current game I'm playing

    They're the same

    My first game was Emerald and the first time chasing after team aqua in the submarine I got lost in the cave. Well not really, but I couldn't get through the strength rock maze. I guess I kept trying but eventually gave up. I left and carried on with the game however I could. At some point I completely forgot about that place and wasn't sure how to get into the gym in sootopolis, among other things. I never beat that game until after I beat Diamond. My pokemon were around lvl 70 the first time I beat the league.
    I really should get a real sig...

    I thought Torkoal was a horrendous monster.

    RS sprite

    I saw the holes in the shell as its eyes, and the neck + head as a closed hand coming out of the shell, somehow grabbing the smoke.

    Here's mine:

    - I thought that Psychic-type moves were super effective against Ghost-types. I never thought that 1st gen Ghost pokemon were part Poison.
    - I thought that you could go to the moon in R/S to capture deoxys.
    - I tried evolving my Sneasel in LG.
    - I tried to push the truck in FR/LG even when I knew it was a hoax.
    - A friend of mine said that Jirachi is the strongest Pokemon, saying that it can grant wishes anytime, and I believed him.
    - After the above event, my brother said that Shedinja is the strongest Pokemon, and I also believed him
    - I encountered a shiny Shuppet in R/S, and ran away from it, thinking it wasn't something special.

    The moveset of my first gyarados in emerald: surf, thunder, fire blast, blizzard...best move set ever!!! (sarcasm)...this was the same game where I tried to muscle through Drake with an over-leveled sceptile that didn't know dragon claw...This was the same time that I found out abut salamence. I ended up training TWO of them and always had them on the same team...I still remember grinding them all the way up to level 79 to get dragon claw and spending a crud load of money at the game corner to get flamethrower for my second one...

    First time I played through Red (first game I ever played) the only pokemon I trained was my Charizard, the rest of my team was always simply made up of the highest level pokemon I could find at any given time (sometimes even several of the same pokemon..). For some reason I was so overly biased towards my Charizard that I wanted it to get all the experience.. I also made the mistake of giving it hm moves because it was the only pokemon I consistently had on my team. Thankfully I never did that again, I realized how ridiculously stupid that was when I got to the Pokemon League and couldn't rely on Charizard to carry me through it.

    A friend of mine told me he dropped his gameboy down the stairs and when he turned it on again he all of a sudden had a Celebi and a level 100 Caterpie, and myself and practically everyone else he told believed him (I assume the Celebi at least must've been hacked). Another friend of mine actually broke his gameboy by throwing it down the stairs in the hopes of getting a Celebi.

    While I didn't do this a few of my friends named their rival ??? in gold/silver/crystal because they thought it actually was his name. Although I'd assumed that there were only three letters in his name and that when being asked what it was I was simply supposed to guess what it was and would somehow be rewarded if I got it right... Me and my brother probably wasted at least half an hour trying to guess what it was before giving up.

    I wouldn't really say that's a stupid thing to do, in fact pretty much most of us did that.

    What was stupid was the fact that Gyarados couldn't take advantage of its typing. And I'm glad we no longer have to deal with stuff like that.

    Yellow - I thought I had died after my Pikachu (my only Pokémon) had died against Brock. After finding out it didn't, I kept training until it was strong enough to Quick Attack the hell out of Geodude and Onix.

    I thought Pikachu's cheeks were his eyes.

    Thundershock was the bomb and every electric Pokémon should know Thundershock - I often ended up with a move-set like Thundershock, Thunderbolt, Thunder and Thunder Wave.

    Red - I'd rare candy almost every Pokémon I had caught.

    Gold - Razor Leaf had the same legendary status as Thundershock.

    I finally figured out what attack/defense and special attack/defense meant. A whole new world opened up for me.

    Well, to be fair they are very similar moves.

    They're both special moves with extremely low base power.

    Ah, Rare Candy . . . I remember sometime in Gen 4 (might have been SS) I thought lv. 100 made Pokemon super powerful, so in order to battle my friends, I got out my Action Replay and gave myself 99 Rare Candies and my Pokemon became godlike even more average than before. On the same general subject, my Typhlosion had Eruption, Fire Blast, Flamethrower, and Shadow Claw. :/

    What's my favourite Pokemon? I'll give you three guesses.

    The ever so popular "use one Pokemon for the entire game" method.

    I also took two weeks to find Violet City on Crystal when I was much younger.

    Mashing A+B to try to capture legendaries easier.

    The accidental jacking up of levels with my starter or my favorite on my team. (especially any of them I thought was really cute!)
    I also tend to press A like a million times thinking it would help my Pokemon survive a 1-hit knock out. Made my day when it did work once, but turns out it just didn't critical hit

    This. I believed this so hard back when I played Crystal. When Suicune got caught while I was doing this, I thought the A+B method was godly. xD

    I had no idea of how to evolve Clamperl, but i desperately wanted a Huntail. So I figured, it has to evolve by around level 30. Leveled it to 30. Nothing. So I attempted to use the evolution rocks. No luck there either. Trading it, perhaps? (Without evo-item) Nothing, again... It got frustrating... But, stubborn as I was, I was determined to evolve it. So I continued to level it... and level it... ans level it... I stopped at level 91... Looking back at it, I'm amazed of how persistent and patient I was. All for nothing, though...
    On a side note... FIRST POST! Yay!
