    Without this post being a wall of text, a few of the misconceptions I had while playing Blue as a kid were:

    -Thinking that there was only one Pikachu in Viridian Forest and hitting my cousin when he fainted it.
    -Feeling as if I must be close to completing the game when I got to Cerulean City for the first time.
    -Spending hours walking around Seafoam Island because I thought Articuno was a random encounter.
    -Spending hours testing out rumors I found on the internet and from friends, i.e. ways to get Mew, PokéGods, Marill, Togepi, Bill's Secret Garden, etc.
    -Wondering how in the world a seashell (Metapod) evolved into a butterfly (Butterfree). No idea why it didn't occur to me that it was a cocoon.
    -Dedicating a lot of time trying to get to the grass to the east and west of Pallet Town thinking that that's where Koffings were, my favorite Pokémon at the time.

    Those are just a few off the top of my head. xD

    I remember using repels (yes plural) to try and wake up the snorlax in Red version. I never got past Vermillion City because I could never move that stupid snorlax. I spent hours and tons of Pokecash on repels. :'(

    I thought healing your Pokemon gave them experience when I was five years old, so I would talk to Nurse Joy nonstop in my Pokemon Yellow.
    I thought it was cool to have just one strong Pokemon and have the other as very weak back-up.
    Releasing my Pokemon and then thinking I could catch them in the wild.

    They make it seem like legendaries are gods in the anime and only the bad guys try to catch them! ^^; I looked up what I was supposed to do on the internet and saw someone said, "You aren't supposed to make it faint stupid! You're supposed to catch it!" o_o I felt so dumb...

    When I was first saw the evolved form of Pikachu (I can't spell his name o_0,) I thought you were meant to pronounce it's name like Pikachu did, apart from the Pi. So I went on calling him 'Rikachu' (It goes like this: Rake-a-chu!)

    I did this until my cosin pointed out to me that you're meant to pronounce it like 'Raichu.'

    When i was 6 or 7 i somehow just KNEW that there had to be something in the grass over the borders of Pallet town, like you could find new or extremely powerful pokemon. I used to spend HOURS to find some possible secret route to get there.http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Breaki...010_121947.png

    And, in ruby/sapphire, i thought that Magcargo evolved into Torkoal, because they were both fire types and were next to each other in the pokedex XD

    About 8 or 9 years ago, when Ash defeated Brock with Pikachu (because of the water spray) I thought I would be able to do the exact same thing with my Pikachu in Yellow with Thundershock. Boy, was I wrong.

    However, I eventually defeated him with Pikachu by using a crapload of Quick Attacks and Tail Whips. I only needed Quick Attack for Geodude, but Onix was where Tail Whip came in handy.

    I thought Mr. mime and Jynx were married...since they both look like humans and were near each other on the pokedex.
    Used masterball on goldeen.
    Spent forever trying to raise pikachu to lv 100 thinking i would win the game.
    Wasting rare candy when i could have just leveled up my pokemon by 100 or 200 experience points.
    Releasing caterpie or butterfree b/c ash did.
    Thinking ampharos was a legendary as i could not catch it in crystal.
    Trading away my only kings rock attached to poliwhirl and losing a politoed b/c the kid knew it would evolve....he eventually erased the data and i wanted it back too :'(
    Crying over a poochyena b/c i did not want to start my game over and catch it again. Same kid above wanted all the starters.
    Not thinking lavitar evovled into pupitar.
    Teaching my main team hms.
    Killing sudowoodo.
    Being stuck in rock tunnel because of the dark.

    I remember teaching my flygon sunny day just to make berries (one berry said it grows well in sunny places) becuase none of my berries would grow thanks to the dry battery thing in R/S.

    I thought the red gyados meant that my game broke. So I restarted, over and over and over and over again. Not until crystal came out did I discover it was a part of the game. I discovered because of the player guide.

    My brother convinced me that Dugtrio evolved into Onix. I ended up with a very high-leveled Dugtrio... but no Onix.

    I thought the same thing! I thought I was the only one.

    Anyways, I believed that stat lowering moves were PERMANENT.
    That you BOUGHT pokemon at the pokemart. -.-
    That if you truly loved your pokemon hard enough, they will always win (which sorta worked lol).
    When I release my pokemon they end up in lavender town D:
    Only levels and typing and evolution mattered, not stats.
    I sold most, if not all of my items except the masterball and tms.

    I thought that when ash left charizard for training that he would come back the next episode, or the next next episode, or the next next next episode, etc.

    EDIT: My friend once convinced me to believe scyther evolved into SCYTHATRON (kabutops). -_____-
    I was really angry at my friend when generation II came out with scizor.

    Tossed away all my pokeballs before venturing into Mt. Silver, trying to feel like a boss by going on a final quest with just me and my pokemon.

    It could be you thinking that something did something if you pressed it or listening to something on the internet that turned out to be fake. Or maybe you thought a certain character in the show was a girl instead of a guy or a guy instead of a girl. Share your stories!

    I'll start us off by saying this...
    When i was young i used to hate getting my stats lowered by an opponent because i thought it actually took away your stats forever, not just lowering it during the battle.
    If you dont understand, if you have an attack of 183 for example, and an opponent used growl and lowered your attack. I thought it went down to 182.

    So share your stories on things that you did that you think weren't exactly smart.
    OMG I used to think that too! I when balistic everytime a pidgey growl spammed me.
    Jolteon this is for you!

    Im ready for battles so fire away with any requests!

    LOL that was the excuse I always told to myself when I couldn't catch them

    Before I got a Pokemon game, I thought that raising and training was more like on the anime. So I figured it would be really cool and awesome to level up, not like it is in the games...grinding. So when my neighbor told me he didn't want Yellow Version because you have to raise your Pokemon in that game, I thought he was stupid. (He liked cloning rare candies via missingno because he was too lazy to level grind, and that glitch isn't in Yellow. Which is something he could list if he were on this board)
    I had no idea how to use a Pokeball. I just kept on knocking out Pokemon, and wondering when I would get the chance to catch one. I thought, "Ash knocks them out before HE catches them!" (That was when I played the GBC set up in the Wal Mart)
    And I kept on thinking, "You forgot Gary's name?" when I finally actually got Yellow.

    Cower before ME!

    I used to think Dunsparce was a legendary Pokemon. heh...

    I always would visit the Space Center in Hoenn and think eventually they'd send me to the moon and I could catch Deoxys - I read this off the internet and thought it was true. :$

    And finally... I'd go outside with my game and look through the grass for Pokemon. True freaking story. One time I called the stars 'Jirachis' to my parents and they thought i was crazy.

    I used to be so obsessed.

    When I had my first Pokemon (Pearl) game about three years ago.. I was new and all alone so I never, ever, ran from a wild battle or knew how to use repels and I beat it without a guide, you can all see how difficult this would be on victory road...I felt like total idiot once my friend showed me how to run and that it was okay to do that.

    I used to run away from every battle, and thought a Flareon evolved into a Eevee. O_o
    I'm a Flareon. x3 I love Eeveelutions, I collect 'em.

    I also have every Pokemon game, yayyyy.



    That's my team in SoulSilver.

    Hope you enjoyed my useless Siggy.

    1. Training more than 1 pokemon in game was next to impossible (started in blue, lasted until Ruby)
    2. Every single Mew/Togepi/Pikablu/Glitch City theory (The truck, bill's garden, alot with Oak, and beating the E4 100 times)
    3. There was nothing wrong with using rare candies (and then wondering why all my awesome level 100, 0 ev pokemon couldn't win 1 battle frontier battle.)
    4. Stat Lowering moves lasted until you went to a pokemon center. Not that I actually cared about stats until Platinum.
    5. Hyper Beam/Fire Blast/Blizzard/Thunder were the greatest
    6. Expected Pikachu to curbstomp Onix anime style (needless to say I used a Nidoqueen every other Yellow playthrough)
    7. In Yellow, Blue and Silver I thought a masterball was the only way to catch a legendary, restricting you to one per game.
    8. Hit hard and fast and only use the Adamant and Modest natures (when I started EV training). No wonder I never won a frontier symbol
    9. Keckleon was the reward for showing professer Elm all 251 pokemon in Silver (damn anime showing it in the second gen) and very rarely you could go to space on a perfect day in Ruby and find Jirachi. Also I thought Mt. Silver was impossible to reach without cheats (I just wanted a sneasel)
    10. Nicknaming your Torchic Blaze would cause rare pokemon to apear more (it actually seemed to work)
    11. Pressing a and moving the control pad aided in the capture.
    12. Up until Platinum (this ones really bad) I used to avoid every single trainer battle I could, and I have no idea why. And this was when I used a whole team so I would end up with level 40s in the E4.
    I sometimes wonder how we were so gullible and imaginative. The good old days

    I really wish they'd change the type of hidden power on the party pokemon page because the normal type icon looks boring. My special sweepers all have stupid looking Attack tabs on their information.
