    When I caught my first shiny Pokemon, I didn't know about shinnies. I ran into it on my way to catch Groudon, and noticed the odd coloring (duh). I caught it, then went on to battle Groudon, without saving. I accidentally fainted Groudon, then turned off the game. Later, I asked a friend about it, and that's how I found out about shinnies. -facepalm-

    I always thouht that Pokemon could die because of stuff like Mt. Pyre. And after reading Absol's Dex Entry:
    It sharply senses even subtle changes in the sky and the land to predict natural disasters. It is a long-lived POKéMON that has a life-span of 100 years.
    I tried clocking 100 years but obviously failed.

    ah , what an unsightly existence ! / illustration : cyawa

    Despite having saw the anime and how catching pokemon, I used to think you caught them when you knocked them out.
    I was one of the many who thought Slowbro evolved into Slowking.
    Didnt know that the Masterball existed.
    Spent a week trying to get to Kanto/Johto... in Ruby.

    • Mashing the A-button because i thought it increased the catch rate
    • I thought Lairon was the final evolution of Aron, untill i saw the beastly Aggron
    • I thought Mew had a 1% chance of appearing in Cerulean cave.
    • I thought Weepinbell and Gloom evolve by level-up.
    • I thought Ash's surname was Ketchup.
    • I thought Pidgeot evolved into Moltres with a Fire stone

    Lol, who didn't do that?

    Anyway, I used to think Hitmonlee evolved into Hitmonchan. Stupid confusing names for my 6-year-old mind. I also used to think Bellossom was a stand-alone Pokemon, instead of an evolution of Gloom.

    Heck, I couldn't even figure out how to get out of the truck the first time I played Ruby. I just sat there staring at the screen for a few minutes until I finally found the exit... XD

    Pokemon should only use moves that they share the type with. This leads to a Charizard with Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Fire Spin, Ember

    Fly can also be used then. Not in R/B though.

    Sticking a bunch of random TM/HM moves on my Pokemon. My Wigglytuff in Yellow knew Ice Beam and Psychic, and my Charizard knew Fissure. Also, I made the mistake of using an offensive Chansey.

    The worst part of all these less-than-smart decisions: I always bought the game guides and read through them several times. So I should have known better.

    In my original Pokemon game, Sapphire, I got Mudkip and I made it past the opening stuff, like all the starter giving and pokeball tutorials.... And I didn't know where to go.... So I hung around the starting town and trained Mudkip to level 50... without catching anything else... then I found the way to the first gym....

    I love loading Pokemon up with different moves.

    For in-game use, of course.

    I usually have one Pokemon that has Return and a bunch of different elemental moves, but competitively, I have around one or two offensive moves and the rest are for strategy and stats.

    Anyways, when I was really little (maybe 3-5-ish), I didn't know all of the Pokemon, and thought Torchic only evolved once and into Zapdos. (I didn't know their names, but I thought Zapdos was a fire type and bright orange.)

    I also used to only raise my starter (it was the strongest so I always used it), so I always ended up catching more and more Pokemon to replace the weaker ones.

    Now my starter is usually the lowest leveled Pokemon of mine. (e.g. I have a party around level 27, and my starter in only level 23.)

    And now I'm thinking about not even using a starter in BW2 when I get it, because they have so many choices of Pokemon to choose from that I don't want to use one that everyone gets at the beginning. I want an Elekid...

    How did you have the patience to do that?

    Although, I must admit to getting stuck on Mt. Moon in Firered for a while, I just kept running in circled, and somehow I always missed the exit....
    Take a moment to consider just how nothing nothing really is....If you understand this, then you just solved the universe.

    The truth that each person...each soul...is a book. And when we lay our feelings out in the open...and we give them no name...and we give them no author....and we give them no description.....who will actually read them..........?"

    Yellow:
    -It took me about 20 minutes to figure out how to leave the house in the beginning.
    -I thought Normal was resistant to Psychic because Psychic attacks seemed to do less damage to them.
    -I believed all of those "cheats" about getting Togepi, Pikablu, and Pokegods.

    Silver:
    -I thought Fearow evolved into Ho-oh.
    -I thought Celebi could be caught in the wild, only at night and in a very specific patch of grass outside Mount Silver.

    Sapphire:
    -I thought Jirachi evolved into Deoxys.
    -I thought Lunatone evolved into Solrock and trained my Lunatone to somewhere in the 40s hoping it would evolve.
    -I thought Magcargo evolved into Torkoal.
    -I didn't know Trapinch evolved into Vibrava; I thought the latter was a water-type and could be found only in the Abandoned Ship.
    -I thought Castform would take Ditto's place for breeding.
    -I thought favorite Pokeblock flavor was determined by species, not nature.

    FireRed:
    -I chose FR over LG because I thought you had to start with Charmander in FR and Bulbasaur in LG, and Charmander is my favorite Gen I starter.

    By the time D/P came out, I had discovered Serebii.net and began using it as a reliable source for Pokemon information :P
