Guilty as charged. Of course, back when these games were first released and every kid on the block was playing them, there were pleanty of rumors. "If you use a certain kind of pokeball in a specific time period, after so many hours of playing, you can catch it!" yeah... I don't ever recall that happening. My cousin came up with the bright idea one time that searching the grass area above the daycare for 24 hours would result in encountering an Alakazam, he ended up seearching that grass area for half the day and then gave up.
