Once I was facing a shiny pokemon, I forget which one, and I hit run by mistake.
Once I was facing a shiny pokemon, I forget which one, and I hit run by mistake.
In White2 after I caught Kyurem, I was on my way back out (hadn't saved cuz I was in a hurry) I accidentally walked over a patch of shaking grass and encountered a Metagross... which then wiped out my entire team because I kept trying to catch it. Dumb of me not to heal yes, but I kept thinking "Weeeeell maybe this next Ultra Ball will get it and I won't have to waste the item"... pffft. I should have known I don't have that kind of luck.

Ugh, my worst one is when you've been playing for hours and have been forgetting to save. Your mom calls you down from your room to do something. You just mindlessly toss your game down and go see what she wants. When you return, the screen is frozen and that annoying sound is coming from your Gameboy Advance SP that means your 3 hours of hard work on Crystal have never happened.
Fighting Elesa. I don't think I've ever been more annoyed by a gym leader then when she uses Volt Switch every turn.

It's not really that bad of a moment, but it's still painful: this morning, I decided to take one of my training shortcuts, with a level 69 Archeops in hand and a Rufflet (level 1) at the start of my party. Going to the Dreamyard, I- naturally, knowing me- get into a wild double battle against two level 48 Kriketunes. So I go to switch the Rufflet out to a level 60 Watchog to flee...
And I promptly learn that I had put it in the box in favour of a level 1 Tepig I got off the GTS. As expected, I was annoyed. The second highest on my team was a level 31 Braviary from White 2.

Getting stuck in a triple battle in Black 2 with two pokemon and forgetting that you have to move pokemon around if too many get knocked out (It wouldn't let me send my last pokemon in because it was last in the party.) so I thought the game froze and shut off the game,I lost two hours of grinding and a gym battle with Clay because I didn't save. -.-

Thanks Chapter of Charizard for the userbar
Got cheesed out by Marlon and his stupid, stupid Jellicent. I hate those things with a passion. Ragequit and realized I never saved, losing 20 minutes of progress. Made my way back to his gym and got frozen by a Walrein's Ice Fang for the second trip in a row! I almost tore my DS in half after the first failure but the hinge held. This time I got the extra shot of rage I needed and tore it in half for real. Guess I'll have to pull out the backup next time I want to trade. To hell with this goddamn game.
I once encountered a shiny Lairon in Emerald and it roared. ;____;
Sapphire was one of my first games ever, and I loved it. My dad bought it used, and it had been played through, plus it had all the starters and a bunch of legendaries. One time at school, this girl asked me if she could play it for a bit. So she started a new file, and then she saved it, so I had to actually start the game. I get that that is sort of what I should have done sooner or later, but I was, like, 6, so it was extremely frustrating. On top of that, I lost the game after a while.
In Pearl, I forget if it was in the forest or the Battle Tower, but I was teamed up with Cheryl in some fight. After a while, all of my pokémon died, so it was up to her and her Blissey or whatever. So the opponent hits her... and she heals. And again... the opponent hits her, she heals. It went on like that for a few turns, and of course I couldn't look at her pokémon to see the PP for that move, so I just shut it off after a while.
I really wanted to have a Raichu with Volt Tackle a few years ago, and I didn't have WiFi or anything, so I had to breed it myself, which meant getting the Light Ball so I could breed it. Seeing as I didn't have the TM for Thief, I had to catch a bunch of Pikachus/Pichus and see if they had a Light Ball. I was pretty lucky, and it didn't take me long until I had one, so I bred a Pichu with Volt Tackle and went to show my friend who lives next door. After showing it to her, I tuned off my DS. After not saving since before trying to get them. So I had to find another one, which took me a few days, even though she helped me.
The same friend I showed the Pichu to caught a shiny Budew once, but she traded it to some kid. He wanted to see what the marks are for that you can use with the PC, so he marked it and let it free to see if it would come back. Of course, it didn't.

Finding a Shiny Zubat in Mt Moon on Leafgreen, pretty much as I was beginning the game just now. This is such a FUUUU moment since it usually takes me forever to encounter a shiny, and BOOM, shiny Zubat catches me by surprise.

I once shut off my game after encountering a shiny Poochyena because I thought it was a glitch. D:
That blood boiling moment when you run into a shiny before you have any Pokeballs...FFFUUUUUUU SOULSIVER!!!! Or the inevitable finding of a shiny in the safari zone. I remember one day, I was at school (I was still in High School) and my boyfriend, who does college night school, called me. I thought it was an emergency. I called him and he was crying. After that went on for a couple of minutes, he managed to say that he found a shiny shuckle (which he loves) in the safari zone, and had no idea what to do. He seriously closed his DS all day until I was able to come home and help him figure it out. I guess the situation just got to him. We did catch it, THANK ARCEUS.
Other moments: forgetting to save before you battle Cynthia, not realizing that you can't save in front of her. Ugh. And her Garchomp. Ugh.
I know this is more Dream World related, but sometimes the DW has issues loading. It won't load. So I have to go out and come back in. Losing precious time.
Killing something you intended to capture.
Forced level grinding. I hate it.
