Thread: Old Rumors Die Hard

    Let's be honest: getting Mew or Celebi by the supposed way of getting all others beforehand is a better completion reward than a piece of paper you can't even use to wipe your *** with.
    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.

    Another for Generation II:
    - "Defeat 251 Pokemon in the Ilex Forest in a row and Celebi appears"
    Tested this at the same time as my test for EVing in GSC. 251 combined kills of Oddish, Zubat, and Paras. Results: no Celebi (duh, the rumor is pure bull-), and no notable increase in stats upon level up (level 70 Mewtwo from Yellow, so no EVs gained already).

    As far as rumors go and which ones I've heard personally in my area, I'd have to admit that I'm likely the only man in the tri-county area who even knows what Pokemon is. Even when Gamestop and TRU events have been going on for half a month, all of the stores in my area are virtually desolate - I'm the only guy who ever attends them. Oftentimes, they're not even prepared out of self-convenience, and I end up forcing them to bring out the preparatory Nintendo-issue distribution cartridge (They still exist, they're just not used as much as they were in Gen III.) This is likely a result of my sub-state culture differentiation. After all, I'm less of a Central Californian and more of a Southern Californian.

    But I remember believing a lot of the long-winded and impossible cheats back in Gen III, like the ones emulated in the "Never-ending Cheat" thread. Per example, I used to believe in the Space Deoxys "Cheat" to a small extent, but things change in six years. Speaking on personal terms, I still mash the A button out of habit when a Pokeball is being used.

    Creating sentience is simple. Accepting it, however, is harder than it looks.

    Someone told me once that Nidoking had a evo chain of 4. Of course I was a believer though never questioned what that extra evo was....hmm

    I remember I disproved a lot of rumors in 4th gen.

    Like poster above, mythbuser list.

    Govto Eterna forest with a Shiny Jirachi, Pikachu, and Mantyke to open a secret room where you can catch Shaymin Lava Form
    Ok, I went to every single spot ere, and no secret room whatsoever.
    If you evolve Phione into Manaphy, you get a special Water Key to unlock the secret stash in the Exchange Building in the Battle Park.
    Basically disproves itself as Phione and Manaphy, as legendary Pokémon, do not evolve nto or from eachother.
    If you go to Spear Pillar early, and use the Azure Flute to capture Dialga, Palkia, and Mewthree (this person thought Arcues was the fabled Mewthree) and then go to the Spear Pillar later on, when Cyrus is there, he will start slapping you and have a mental breakdown, and then falling off the mountain,
    Dialga/Palkia does not appear if you got to the Spear Pillar early, and Mewthree does not exist.

    Here's one that went around my school:

    Play one of the games (Red, Blue, or Yellow, it doesn't matter which) for 100 hours straight, without stopping, and you'll get to see Mew.

    My friend told me that you could fight the ghost in the mansion in Eterna Forest, and you got to battle Latios and Latias. You can´t even move when the ghost is in the house!

    Let's see... I know a couple of 3rd/4th graders were telling me something about how you needed to take certain Pokemon (They were legendary ones, forget which ones) somewhere in the White game to make Meloetta appear. Or was it Victini? Anyway, it was one of the event-only Gen V Pokemon, and it was a really lame thing that gets started the same way all these other lame rumours get started: Some friend of theirs told a friend of theirs who told them that that's what would happen, and it's the kind of crap that can take a long time to disprove if you can't get hold of the legendaries needed to "unlock" it.

    So, not only are the old ones still circulating, but it appears that new ones are being formed as quickly as new games come out.

    Of course, I did believe that thing about the fighting Jirachi on the moon. Something about talking to the guy who tells you how many successful launches there have been, and if he says a certain number (I think it was 00, but this was years ago that I heard it) you'll be able to take the rocket to the moon and capture Jirachi. I tried for about 5 minutes to do it, then gave up figuring I'd have to have an event ticket to get the guy to say the correct number or something, lol!

    I'd like to claim that I'm not the type of person to believe these pokemon myths, but to this day I still press "a" when the pokeball closes and the directional buttons (left d-pad when the pokeball shakes to the left, then right d-pad when it shakes to the right, etc.) when trying to keep the pokemon inside.

    Plus I really want an OT mew so I would definitely at least TRY the "use strength on the truck" suggestion back in the day. That's how these myths work - they are born from hopes and dreams.

    I remember the BS rumor about the next evolution from Charizard called "Charcoal". Now back when were kids we almost believed anything and I think this rumor was spread post 2nd gen... I was skeptical about it and when GEN 3 came out, I saw the Pokemon Torkoal... whom I thought was misinterpreted as "Charcoal" or something like that. I remember asking what this so called Charcoal looked like and they said he had no wings which made me think that Torkoal was probably what they saw... Honestly guys, don't take this as something serious...

    I honestly do not know WHY or WHAT was going on with that rumor. The Torkoal thing was just something I used as a theory to that rumor...

    In Ruby/Sapphire: if you put a special pokeblock in one of the most remote pokeblock feeders in the safari zone, that Kyogre would decsend from the sky and you could fight him again

    Oh lord, I remember one from gen I or II, not sure

    It consisted in running around a certain gym, a couple hundred times, non-stop, always glued to the wall, and then Mewtwo would appear.

    I still dream of the day I'll get those hours back.. Sigh.

    Haha, I still do this as well. Wonder if it really works, because it looks like it does, tbh.


    EDIT: I forgot which town it was. I thought it was Mahogany BUT, from what I've seen on google (the map), you can't go around it without bumping into a ledge.

    When Lucario was revealed, I heard a rumor that if you attached a Metal Coat to a Mightyena and traded it about one hundred times, the Mightyena would evolve into Lucario.

    Yeah, I heard this a lot when I was younger, supposedly after having several hundred hours logged onto the game you can get on the rocket and go to the moon and there you catch Deoxys.

    I grew up living on the rumors of Gen 3. Most notably, Deoxys and Jirachi. Nintendo should have put them in game instead of those stupid EVENT ONLY things. They put in a completely pointless rocket launch which got my hopes up for going into space for Deoxys. Reached 100, got nothing. That white rock associated with wishing was useless, only to be a Jirachi letdown.

    I think everyone knows about the rumors of Givovanni (sp?) being Ash's Father....in Diamond and Pearl it was false but for years I (along with hundreds of others i'm sure) thought the same.....I kinda liked the idea of him being Ash's father..... :\
