    Default Most Epic Fails in the Pokemon Games

    What are your most epic fails in the Pokemon Games? I believe mine was when I encountered a Shiny Skarmory in Emerald while trying out a YouTube glitch [that obviously didn't work, I might add] to get to the islands for Deoxys Lugia and Ho-Oh without the event tickets. I caught the Shiny Skarmory in an Ultra Ball and continued with the glitch. When it failed, I kinda got annoyed and turned off the game. Little did I realize, I forgot to save the game, thereby losing my Shiny Skarmory... Add to that the fact that Skarmory is one of my favorite Pokemon... Yeah, that sucked. lol.

    So, share your most epic fails in the Pokemon Games!

    I encountered a shiny Gloom in Fire Red and it managed to knock itself out from Confusion due to Petal Dance

    Encountering a shiny Camerupt in Diamond, then knocking it out because I accidentally hit Mega Drain instead of Toxic...

    Also forgetting to save before Suicune in Crystal and failing to catch it. Instead of just shutting off the game like I should have, I saved afterwards because I didn't want to lose the previous hour and a half of progress, even though that "progress" was miniscule. I was such a naive little child.

    I lost to a PARASOL LADY once. Wait! Let me explain! I'd been in Chargestone Cave without enough Repels or any escape ropes. I realised my team was way underlevelled, so I turned back. By the time I got out, Audino was the only pokemon I had left. It was doing OK for HP though, so I assumed I wouldn't have any problems getting to a pokecenter. Unfortunately, I was seen by this Parasol Lady, and defeated her first pokemon easily, but then she sent out Frillish. All of Audino's moves were Normal-type, so I couldn't damage the thing at all and just had to wait for it to slowly defeat me. Epic fail.

    I released an Oddish one time in Emerald and later in life I went in the grass and encountered a shiny Oddish. I'm colorblind so I thought the little star that appears meant that the Pokemon used to be yours lol. I caught it too haha.

    I used a Master Ball on a Roselia in Ruby lmao, that's the first Pokemon game that I actually made it to the end to and beat so I didn't know the importance of a Master Ball at the time. I ended up catching Rayquaza with a Great Ball I think though lol

    In Emerald I accidentally defeated Rayquaza then accidentally saved the game

    When playing Crystal I found a shiny Goldeen, but I didn't catch it because I already had a Goldeen and didn't think it mattered if it was shiny or not.
    Silly me.

    When I was a kid and I was playing Ruby, I spent HOURS losing to May because of her damn Treecko being 4X super effective against my marshtomp. Another thing was when I got lost in the Wayward Cave in Pearl with no repels and then saved. I spent more than enough time there. Finally, my third shiny, geodude, was caught in my only Masterball cause I was scared it would blow up-it was Level 11.

    Soon I'll have you, after years and years XD

    Traded LV. 60 Adamant Drapion for a Naive Dewott. To be honest, I don't even like the Oshowatt evolution line in general, but I wanted to build a team around it just to see what it's like. Seemed as if that trade were a waste of time by how it looked back then.

    Luckily, I have replaced Drapion with another good tank, Slowbro.

    I accidentally saved after fainting Kyorge on Emerald.

    My cousin had Ruby, which was her first pokemon game, and taught her Blaziken fighting and normal type moves. She then fought Hex Trainer and got owned by a Shuppet XD.

    Once, me and my older brother were playing Firered (me) and Leafgreen (him) together.

    we had both just beaten Lt. Surge and we both went into rock tunnel. Then we had a contest: who could get through Rock Tunnel first. I was eager to win because he had always been one step ahead of me.

    While he constantly went back to the Pokemon Center to heal, I pressed on.

    Eventually, after a lot of zubats, I got through, beating my brother. I gloated and bragged then went into lavender town. My brother told me of the ghost types and how they would be good against a gym leader later, so without even visiting the pokemon centre I went to Pokemon Tower to catch these ghost types.

    Then there he stood. my rival. I accidentally started the fight with him and I froze. My brother looked at my screen and laughed. With all my pokemon either fainted or worn out from Rock Tunnel I was destroyed. I blacked out.

    And woke up in Cerulean City.


    Another thing that happened both me and my brother messed up with the master balls. He caught a pidgey with it and me a fearow.

    It took me...1 try.

    I didn't know you could turn off the alarms that made the Team Rocket grunts fight you in SS/HG. You know, at the base? I've replayed SS 3 times and I didn't know that...

    Losing to a random Sawk outside Pinwheel forest during one of my White runs. I had a team planned and at that point I only had one pokemon with me (I don't remember which). While I was raising its level to take on Lenora, I was also looking something up on the internet so I wasn't really paying attention to the battles. Soon the first turn the Sawk used Bide without me noticing and, unfortunately, my attacks wasn't strong enough to beat it in two hits.
    Just another generic signature.
