I remember that I read a "cheat" for Pokemon Silver that said pushing certain buttons at the start screen would get you a Celebi. It ended up asking me if I wanted to delete my save file. I hit yes because I still thought I would get a Celebi.

Wow this is going to be embarrassing but,
my friends told me pushing a or b increases the chance of catching pokemon during a wild battle. :v and I believed them.
There was a time that I though that Normal Types had no weaknesses...Until I met Fighting types...
The same applies for Dragon types, who I also thought were unstoppable Typewise...Until I met Ice!

A few mispronounciations:
Illumise - Is-a-loom
Kyogre - Kai-rogue
Rattata - Rat-ta-tat
I also thought that feebas was found, not in 6 random squares of water in the river west of Fortree city, but in 6 random squares of water in THE ENTIRE GAME, INCLUDING THE CURRENTS EAST OF SLATEPORT CITY.
Also thought that Chimeco was a super rare legendary. But really, why so rare?
Also, in some games I bred my pokemon to have "families" and kept them together in boxes so they wouldn't be sad.
In sapphire I bred an entire box of trapinch. I had two flygons named Tya and Tyo and all the trapinch had names. Some of my favorite nicknames were "ID Card", "The jerk", "I'm a POOP" (yes, caps and all), "FINONINIA", "TORTEA" (attempt at spelling tortilla), "HNOOJKRRRL", "Torllteyah" (attempt at spelling tortilla after learning it had two Ls in it), and of course, "Trapy", my first shiny. (I didn't learn Trapy was shiny until weeks after she hatched and was named, so my first shiny could have been named I'm a POOP or HNOOJKRRL.)
I still nickname my pokemon, but their names are much more... dignified than they would have been when I was a kid.

dragonair, I would do the same for the fun of it. Put pokemon together as a family. xD
I mashed the A or B button when trying to catch a Pokemon. At the same time I would hold down either the left or right side of the D pad, and switch which side I was holding each time the ball shook. Probably the real stupid thing is I still do it occasionally, just out of habit.
I agree, even if it doesn't work, when your really trying to catch a pokemon some people would do anything to help their chances. I remember even getting my family annoyed because the button mashing would get more intense (more noisy i suppose) the more frustrated or determined I was to get a pokemon.
When I first played pokemon, I made the extremely common mistake of only training one pokemon and leaving out the rest. I did this until Heart Gold/Soul Silver came out in 2010, and even then I probably had two main pokemon who were grinded above everyone else. I also thought that stat lowering and raising moves were weirdly based off of your special attack and special defense.

When I was a kid, in Pokémon Emerald I trained my Pikachu to level 83 waiting for it to evolve -_- Then I figured that it needed a thunderstone... Thank you Serebii!
I read somewhere that beating the Elite Four with just one or two Pokémon yielded more Exp Points, so I tried that two or three times in Sapphire.

I don't know if anyone has ever heard of this supposed secret before, because it's very very old...but back in the days of G/S, there was a rumor that if you had every single Pokemon in Gold Version, and your party only had Mew and Unown in it at Lv 99, if you went to Ruins of Alpha and spent hours clicking on all of the statues, eventually a Dark Lugia would appear and you could catch it. The site even showed a battle screen of this, so I thought it was legit. Lol. It made me feel stupid because I actually went and did everything it said, and I ended up being paranoid of the Ruins of Alph and the Unown because of this. o.o

Oh, and I also thought that using Psych Up didn't copy the stat boosts and drops in battle, but changed the Pokemon's base stats so that it matched that of the opponent (say that the opponent has a base stat of 149 for Attack, and I had 180, and I used Psych Up. I thought that would make my Attack stat 149 for the rest of the battle). It took me a while to figure out that it works to copy stat boosts and drops, such as if the opponent used Swords Dance twice and got a +4 Attack boost, and if I used Psych Up, I would get the +4 Attack boost.

The nicknames I gave some of my Pokémon when I was 9......

Boner the Marowak
Humper the Numel
Horny the Heracross
Stoner the Regirock
Clitoris the Giratina (Read the word in a book, not knowing what it was, but it sounded cool.

Being a teenager when I started, I avoided most of the really stupid stuff. I did however only just work out that Rhyhorn evolved normally and didn't require a trade. Oops!
I used to think that if I did something then I would be able to get Celebi out of the shrine in Celestic Town. I wasted SO much time trying different things xD
