    If he doesn't believe that, try to find a copy of Guniess World Records 2001. In 2001, Pokemon Yellow version was the fastest selling game of all time. That will at least prove that older games exist.

    I remember someone trying to pull off a Minusle hoax. (Minun + Plusle in one Pokemon)

    Yeah, no.

    EDIT: And the random YouTube videos of people battling 100 Unown and then a Celebi appears. Or where you tap the badges in Diamond/Pearl in front of the Celestic Town shrine and Celebi appears.

    Yeah, no.

    Good point. Treating him like a troll might be the best course of action, Neon Squirtle. Don't seek him out, don't show him anymore proof. If he comes to you and spouts more "facts" laugh and say that you know he's just joking. If he really is joking then he'll know he can't mess with you anymore. But if he truly believes this crud then you can shift the burden of proof to him by asking him for evidence. Let's see him prove that Red & Blue were faked.

    Exactly. How can he actually have proof of Gen I being fake if there is none?

    Yes, but my guess is he found it on the internet, a lot of kids believe anything they see on the internet. Well if my link doesn't work, try seeing him as a troll, like the people above me said.

    I saw a video that said that if you went until certain par4t of Hoenn in Emerald without catching any Pokémon, a Celebi would appear in your Box. Me and my brother tried this a thousand times, but it never worked

    there doesn't seem to be any rumors though about this. A more plausible idea is that maybe he has an older sibling who decided to feed him false info.

    Pressing "DOWN + B" while catching a Pokemon helps catch Pokemon a lot easier.

    We know that it's just a myth and really does nothing at all but I think many players still do this out of habit. Myself included. XD
    I still do this as well, even if I use my AR with a 100% capture code. It's truly a habit that's hard to break

    You're probably right.

    Anyway, back on the topic of rumours, I used to believe that mashing the A button on a DS would make moves hit more often. I realised it wasn't true, but still do it out of habit. Also, when I was googling tips on catching Pokemon so I could get an Eevee for my White2 and I found people saying to swear into the microphone to double the catch rate. Eh, nope.

    I used to believe that if you froze a wild pokemon you can always catch it no matter the health or level. My friend also said that he caught a frozen Rayquaza with a Poke Ball.

    Some of my friends believed the rumor about going to the moon to catch Jachari/Deoxys, and they wouldn't believe me when I told the its not true.

    Someone also told me you could join Team Magma in Ruby. Since I had Sapphire I really had no way to test it out and I for some reason believed him.
    No sig. Deal with it.

    GF have to make a spinoff where you can play as Maxie or Archie and go on to start Team Magma/Aqua and actually succeed in your goals. And get to pick your Pokemon and aren't stuck with a Crobat and Mightyena.

    It really is. I still mash the A and Y on my DS, I can't help it.

    I'd love a game where you get found by Max/Archie and sign up to be a member, then you'd have to rank up or something until you become the leader.

    In elementary school, I once heard that when you beat the Elite 4 in Diamond & Pearl a number of times (idk the exact number, it was around 50 or something), a pc would appear in a cave somewhere, and with that pc, you could clone pokemon. I didn't try it, but a lot of my friends did. Didn't work of course....
    I still want to believe there is something in the games that even Serebii doesn't know about though.... like a secret trick you have to do to get a legendary.... But I know that isn't true

    Anyone remember that one where if you made Lickitung eat a Rare Candy at level 22 while holding the Game Boy upside down (or something like that) would make it evolve into freakin' Luigi?
    Shokotan: "And then, in Extremespeed Genesect: The Awakening of Mewtwo, we meet another Mewtwo!"
    Yuyama: "Yes, I thought it'd be better if it was a different Mewtwo."
    Good for you Yuyama. Too bad you've singlehandedly torpedoed any lingering respect I and anyone else had for you.

    I tried something based on a rumour when I was really young on my Gold version, about resetting 250 times in front of Red's mother and then I would apparently receive a Mew. Of course, nothing happened, and I think at the time I expected as much to begin with, I was just a bored child with nothing better to do than debunk myths.

    I heard a rumor that if you run around a legendary pokemon 101 times before battling it , it would be shiny....yeah i seriously believed it

    However if you fight it and soft reset that number... times a thousand... it might be shiny.

    I remember in diamond and pearl there was this rumor about a city called Benco City, and in the city you could capture a Pokemon called Planthy.

    I swear I use to think button mashing increased your chances of catching a pokemon... Even though I don't believe it anymore, I still find myself button mashing. Old habits die hard...

    I remember talking about Charizards evolution, a black version named Charcoal. And I wasn't getting confused with the Shiny version, I thought it would actually evolve through a secret event...
