    Used to have the following line up:

    lv. 91 Blastoise
    lv. 68 Moltres
    lv. 84 Crobat
    lv. 78 Mewtwo
    lv. 56 Zapdos
    lv. 51 Articuno


    Yeah.. you could say I like Legendary Pokemon, or you can say I liked Flying types.

    -I only trained my starter in Leaf Green.
    - I could never beat Lorelie because my starter was a Charizard.
    -I thought the last four moves a Pokemon learned were the strongest in its entire moveset, so my Charizard knew....Slash, Dragon Rage, Fire Spin, and Fly. Or Cut.
    -I thought Slowbro evolved into Slowking.
    -I thought you could get a Espeon or Umbreon in Leaf Green.
    -I gave my Pokemon scrambled letters, numbers, and symbols for names because I couldn't spell.
    -Once I could spell I gave them very unoriginal names.
    -I named my trainer ATSZV6♂.
    -I named most of my Pokemon ASH, then threw in random numbers, letters, and symbols.
    -I thought that if you released a Pokemon you could find it in the wild again and catch it. I did so with a Pidgey and ran around Route 1 looking for it again.
    -I didn't evolve my Poliwag because I thought Poliwhirl wasn't cute and hated Poliwhirl.
    -I thought you could get Johto Pokemon before you beat the game.
    -My team was Charizard (level 92 or something), Zapdos (Level 55), Moltres (Level 50), Articuno (Level 50), Sandslash (?), and Lickitung (?)
    -I restarted the game very often.
    -I didn't save once so I started crying thinking my Pokemon were gone. I was really worried about my new Caterpie for some reason. AAAAAAAAAA was her name, I believe. (Not sure if it was her or a different Caterpie).
    -I never chose Bulbasaur when I restarted.
    -AAAAAAAAAA's moveset was Tackle, String Shot, Sunny Day, and Toxic.
    -I had a Beedrill named Stan.

    My cousin and I would actually go out in the woods with our pokemon cards and pretend we were starting an adventure (we would pack food and everything) and we would battle and capture invisible pokemon. =P We used those pokeballs that you got the gold cards in from Burger King I think. It was fun and good times. =)

    - The Tyrogue evo line really confused me. I thought that Tyrogue evolved into Hitmonchan/Hitmonlee based on gender, and then that evolved into Hitmontop. Or something.
    - I thought there was a secret place behind the E4 building that had all the legendaries. >.>
    - The first time I got an egg at the daycare, it was completely by chance and I thought it was really special. (To be honest, they do make a big deal out of it in the games: "Sometimes an egg appears at the daycare! Nobody knows how it gets there...")
    - To continue with the last one, I thought that you had to have two Pokemon of the same kind, one male and one female, to make eggs.

    My brother used to think that the move Withdraw released a pokemon. For some reason, I believed him, and I wouldn't dare use the move on my Squirtle. Also, I used to think that released pokemon would appear later in the wild. I still used to believe this until recently, when I started MMing for a shiny Trapinch. I released hundreds of baby Trapinchs, and haven't seen a single one in the wild.

    For a really long time I didn't know Trapinch evolved into Flygon. I had no idea Vibrava existed, and I had always wanted a Flygon ever since I saw Drake with one. One day I was looking the Pokedex at the Trapinch-???-Flygon numbers, and I had an epiphany. Trapinch evolved into something that evolved into Flygon! So I caught a Trapinch and evolved. That made me extremely happy.

    I caught Pokemon my brother already had because, i didn't realize the pokeball symbol meant my brother had it. And I thought Azurill was a water type just because it was blue, but its a normal type. And I thought sudowudoo (sorry if I spelled that wrong) was a grass type, just Because it looked like a tree XD

    -I thought Wooper evolved into Quagsire which evolved into Wobbuffet.
    -I thought Skitty evolved into either Delcatty or Spinda.
    -I used my master ball on a Dratini, not because I thought I could get another one, but because it was my only pokeball left and i thought Dratini was super rare.
    -I thought Gloom could learn Solarbeam, so I kept training and training till it got to around level 80. It never learned it.
    -Before I knew Blaziken was a starter and Groudon was a legendary, I thought Blaziken evolved into Groudon.
    -I named my GSC rival ???.
    -The first episode, I thought the Ho-oh was a Fearow.
    -I had no idea what pokerus was, so when I got it and Nurse Joy gave me some shpiel about a virus, I got freaked out
    -For some reason I couldn't figure out how to get out of New Bark Town. I have no idea why.
    -I wanted to see what "release" was, and I ended up getting rid of my hoothoot that I really liked
    -After going from Olivine to Cianwood to get the secretpotion for the Ampharos, I thought I needed to do the Olivine gym before the Cianwood gym since I got to them in that order, so I surfed all the way back to Olivine, beat the gym, surfed all the way back to Cianwood, and beat that gym.
    -I thought you got Celebi by breeding Meganium and Alakazam.
    -I saw Pokemon as being completely different sizes. I always thought Tentacruel, Rhydon, Parasect, and Magcargo were the size of a house. Tentacruel and Rhydon were mostly because there were giant versions of them in the anime. I also thought Nidoqueen and Nidoking were like 10 feet tall.

    I can breed any breedable Pokémon you want with any nature/egg moves and up to 5 perfect IVs. I can also EV train and/or give it Pokerus. I can't breed shinies, 6 IVs, or specific Pokéballs. The harder the request, the better Pokémon I'm gonna want in return. PM me with requests and offers.

    I once thought that Seadra evolved into Kingfra by level up. I onced trained a Seadra to llevel 63 waiting for it to evolve, but I eventually went online and I learned how it really evolved.

    Holy sheezballs... I always thought Azurill was water type until 2 seconds ago when I saw your post and looked it up! Interesting... I only thought it was a water type because it evolved into a Marill. Apparently I need to rethink my assumptions.

    I thought breeding a Sentret and a Wooper, or any Pokemon of two different species would create some funky hybrid. Imagine my disappointment when a Wooper hatched instead :P

    Technically, that's true. There used to be a size function on the Pokedex. Come to think of it, there's a Height function on them now, so you're still right on Pokemon being different sizes.

    I thought Pikachu + Eletcabuzz made Pikakid. I also didn't train any other Pokemon besides my Blaziken when I first played Ruby.
    I'm back. And ready for more battling.

    I balanced the EVs evenly across all stats rather than clustered in certain stats.

    My first games were Sapphire and Ruby, so I thought that was the first generation, and didn't know about any of the other games until later. I also used my master ball on a random Pokemon and would only train my starter.

    I thought accuracy was a stat
    that pessing ab repeatedly helps you catch a pokemon
    stat drops were permenent
    at rocket launch 79 you go to the moon and catch deoxys
    the mew truck
    pikablu in the fuschia mans house below the PC was obtainable
    you could de-evolve a pokemon
    when a pokemon fainted from poisioning it died
    every time you anted to peform the missingno. glitch you had to speak to the guy in saffron with a pidgeot
    lombre evolved by level (i had a nightmare that he had to undergoe emergency evolution).
    the deep sea tooth didnt do anything so i sold it
    weezing was week to water because its skin looked dry
    that when the ss anne left i coudnt get to celadon so i restarted
    spelling onix in rock tunnel with your character would make it appear
    any hiker with an onix over lvl 14 was better than brock and deserved to be the gym leader
    you could find the guys glasses in R/S apart from the blackglasses and spent ages trying to find them
    the send a pokemon out then switching for exp worked like if yo left it out for longer it would get more xp
    EDIT: getting 150 pokemon in R/B ment getting mew from oak
    until 3rd gen i belived the rock type was weak to ice
    there would be light type
    anytime anyone used growl or swords dance or any move like that they had wasted a turn
    and finally...
    I thought the ss. anne woulg come back if you had a yer of play time so i left it on for ages 8766 hours logged and no ss. anne

    wow thats a lot to get off my chest and most of them were down to my older brother.

    add more later

    Even if the onix thing worked, I could see why it would not for you :P


    Take a step and I'm on my way, gonna start all over again,.......again.

    I believed that if a Shellder died, it turned into Ghastly. Someone in real life told me so when I was like 6 and he was like 11. Come to think of him now, he was downright stupid.

    When I first played my brother's pokemon game I thought you got pokemon out of the pc by releasing them. I released all my brothers super strong pokemon and since I changed box I saved the game.
