    The most 'fail' like moment I ever experienced was trying to glitch myself a shiny Mew in Yellow using the Mimic-Transform glitch like I'd normally do for a shiny Ditto (requires a shiny with Mimic from GSC). The idea for the Ditto is to have the Red Gyarados from GSC, teach it TM 31: Mimic in Yellow, and have it battle Ditto. Use Mimic to take Transform. The Ditto Transforms into Gyarados. Gyarados uses Transform and the Ditto does the same thing. Then catch it, send it over to GSC, and the Ditto will be shiny.

    So, using that, I used a couple of glitches to encounter a level 13 Mew (has Pound + Transform) in the 'classic' area between Saffron and Lavender. With the Red Gyarados from my Gold, I did all the stuff requried to make the Mew shiny. Took a while because that thing was determined to use Pound 'till death. But eventually, it used Transform, then my Gyarados used Transform, and Mew had no choice but to use Transform again. Then I caught it using Missingno.-duplicated Master Balls, and the WRONG MESSAGE occurred. "GOTCHA! DITTO WAS CAUGHT!"

    Huh? As it turns out, anything that uses Transform in the wild in Yellow is considered to be a Ditto since it's the only thing with Transform that you encounter through normal methods. So I ended up catching a level 13 Ditto with like... 35/25 HP or something (it had Mew's HP. Base 100 (Mew) is greater than 48 of Ditto, after all) that was shiny. I tried several more times and I ended up with 4 shiny Dittos and 0 Mews.
    That reminds me of the time I was playing Red, and I had encountered a Fearow. At that time, I was too lazy to train much more than my starter, so I leapt at the chance to catch it. I don't remember exactly how it went, but I know it Mirror Moved my Ditto's Transform, and long story short, I wound up catching a Ditto.

    I HAVE CLAIMED WEEZING. YOU ARE NOT WORTHY.

    Mine fail happened when I first played blue. I didn't know what the masterball was for and I used it on zapdos. But later when I found mewtwo I couldn't catch it and forever regretted using that ball on dumb zapdos

    Only a week or so after I got HeartGold I sent my Scyther into a battle against a Sneasel. It took me a while to realize why False Swipe wasn't defeating the sneasel. And killing Zapdos in Platinum, Does it ever come back?

    Back in the days of my very first Yellow file (when I didn't know what I was doing), I ended up using my one and only Master Ball on... ... Farfetch'd. Yep. That horribly useless bird because I didn't know it sucked ***. In that file, I eventually went to fight Articuno armed with nothing but Pokeballs (don't really remember why I didn't have any Ultra or even Great Balls). I saved in front of it (no Repels or Escape Rope or things with Dig), went to battle THEN I realized that you can't catch Legendaries with a Pokeball in Yellow without putting it to sleep or freezing or even paralyzing, because you MISS for some reason. And I had shoved that useless Pikachu in the box (the only thing I had with Thunderwave)...
    A recent RNG binge has left quite a few shiny IV 31 all (or practically 31 all) Legendary Pokemon left over, among others.
    I will gladly sell them to those who desire for interesting offers. Since I can RNG, a random shiny is as interesting to me as an ant is to a math professor.

    How is this a fail? If he's suppose to be hard, then you're suppose to lose at least once/

    That's still not a fail. He's SUPPOSE to be hard, because you get rewarded if you beat him.
