    I remember playing Sapphire once and running into a Shiny Lotad, then accidentally escaping from it.

    Same in Black with a Shiny Boldore.

    When battling in Pokemon Black, I would sometimes use Type Disadvantages of my team.

    Just finished the story of White, and it's my third time playing through the story.

    Beat the E4, caught Zekrom, beat N, beat Ghestis, yaddayaddayadda. Decide "Hey, let's go to the eastern side of Unova now!"
    I get into into a battle and then I start losing. Like actually losing. Then I realize the levels:
    Opponent's team: 68/65/67
    My teams: 43/43/45/46/51/53
    *facepalm*
    My mistake: Going into trainer battles 20 levels underleveled. On my third playthrough, you'd have thought I would have remembered that the level of trainers poke's spike from 51 in the E4 to 68 by random trainers. I mean, you know you're underleved when the wild pokemon are leading you by a level or two(ten or twelve, if you go in the dark grass)

    Stealth Rock says hi. That's another fail in Pokemon, how crippling it is and how drastically it changed the competitive part of the game.

    Hadnt caught him yet, and relying on that Volc is about as useful as relying on the lvl 100 Reshiram from that one event. Which I admit to doing vs Ghestis cuz his Hydreigon one-shotted my whole team, which isn't really fair. Then again, my team was poorly planned out. Scolipede/Beartic/Beheeyem/Emolga/Keldeo/Zekrom
    The Keldeo was from that last event as well.

    I gave my master ball to Walrius so that my brother won't know where is it since he likes to disturb me.One day, I decided to have all the three starters of hoenn.I used my brother's Ruby and my Emerald. Since my brother agreed to lend me his ruby to get the starters on a one condition: I had to trade over my Walrius to him as a 'safekeep'. I traded it over without realising my master ball was traded along.And soon, my brother restarted the game.There goes my master ball and money to buy so many ultra balls.

    How in the world would you "accidentally" run away?

    I've only done it once. And it was because I didn't look at the screen.

    Me too. I can't remember what the pokemon was, but it looked a little lighter colored then usual, so I freaked out a little waiting for the animation, but it didn't came. It happened again soon after, because I was trying my team and the same pokemon came up.

    Sometimes, after finding a pokemon I want, I stupidly hit 'run' because I hit it so many times before.
    I'm looking for a Serperior named Serpedera. It'll be at lvl 98 or above. If you happen to have such a pokemon please PM me.

    I've done this enough times to hate myself, but when I come across a pokemon I really want/need I get too excited and start button mashing (or in the DS's case screen mashing) and accidentally press run. I get out the first time.

    By Gen 1 fanboy I was referring to what lots of people would call a "genwunner" (I hate the term so I try not to use it) ie, someone who hates every other gen because they aren't gen 1. Obviously that doesn't apply to you, although saying Gen 4 is garbage is just as bad as saying Gen 5 is garbage, each gen has improved on the last one. I don't see why it's that hard to accept. It's not one post that got me worked up, it's the fact that you see stuff like that everywhere.

    im not sure if this counts but yesterday i went to sainsbury's (living in england) i went to buy w2 with my friend yesterday i saw that there was a box showing b2w2 but just a box. we lost hope but then i heard the ad for the games(i mean who doesn't like that insanely catchy version of the theme) and i ran round the bend i slipped and fell down not once but twice. i was so excited then i saw it was a bloody tv! so then we asked the person working there if they have it. i was told to go to the photo shop (dont know what that is) they said they have it. soooooo excited! then they said that we needed an adult.

    WHAT THE F***!? A 3+ game and i still need an adult? so then i went to a different shop today i couldnt see it though so i thought they were out of business. immediately i thought to myself why? just why? then i saw the logo for the shop and thought, yes! there is still hope left! then i saw a bunch of clothes i the shop. me: ****. so then i went to another shop which took about an hour from my destination i got there the shop there terminated as well. then i went to a near by shop. they dont have it. then i went to another nearby shop. they have it yes! just about to buy it when i realise im 55 pence short of Ł30 pounds. fair enough it is just 55 p so lets see if theyll let it slide right. she sent me packing with a smile. aww come on its just 55p come on! later today i went shopping with my mom they had it. yup they had it and cheaper than most but i couldnt buy it. no words could dexcribe a feeling like this but i swear i heard someone singing trollloolllloolllllollllo!

    Your rival in GSC. You beat him countless times, yet he still convince himself that you suck, and he rules.

    lol, proof the anime is uneducative for kids who want to play the game.
    I lost count of how many times the show messed up the type weaknesses/resistances.....
