    I'm suprised that any of the young people know about gen 1, as it's not sold for ds systems at this point.

    I think the idea for that came from Pokémon Live, where that was the case. In the animé, Ash's dad is apparantly a deadbeat who abandoned his family.

    Good for you Yuyama. Too bad you've singlehandedly torpedoed any lingering respect I and anyone else had for you.

    I remember hearing about these things called Pokegods. My friend and I were online and we came across it. One I remember clear as day was either a black charizard or a charizard fossil. You had to go talk to Bill after you beat the game or something and he'd bring you behind his house and it would be there. I wanted to get it so bad. There were others too but I can't remember.

    While Bill has nothing to do with it, black Charizards actually do exist. That's their shiny form.

    That has to be one of the most bizarre rumors I have ever heard. O_O
    As for my rumor, it would have to be that Deoxys in space one.

    Someone tried to tell me that Celebi would appear at the Celestic Town shrine if you hit the Sinnoh Gym Badges in a certain way. Based on how the shrines in Celestic Town and Ilex Forest are designed, I kinda believed him, until Serebii told me otherwise....

    I remember stories of killing Pokemon, and being arrested for doing so.
    Plus, all the creepypastas of the Internet. 'Nuff said.

    Believing that pressing the A,Right,Select,Start Buttons together would help in getting crits, better chance of catching a pokemon and better chance of winner the fight.All I got was a broken Game Boy after 1 year of smashing.

    And also believing that hiding in the toilet and being silent would help to catch a legendary.

    Well, I was desperate to catch Rayquaza; so I was accepting whatever advice my friends would give me.This was one of the only ones that seems okay(there was another one which requires me to be naked). After about a year of doing it, I realise my friend was leading me on. I was 8 at that time too.

    I have heard quite a few of these (really a toilet), but whatever, quite a few of these I believed when I was in 2nd and 3rd grade (I'm a High School senior now). MewThee, Mewfour. I heard quite a few of them but whatever.

    I agree. A kid in the year 3 below mine at school told me he heard me talking about how classic Pokemon (Squirtle, Mewtwo, etc.) are my favourites to my friends and them agreeing with me. He then told me there are no such Pokemon as "Bulbasaur" or "Venomoth" and that I should stop pretending to like Pokemon to get more friends at school, and even if I do, I should stop talking about "fake classics" and say I like real Pokemon like Snivy and Reshiram. *facepalm*

    Even if that was real, I would not want to try that... O_O Sounds painful (I know you cannot get hurt, but still...).

    Wow... *claps slowly* For all the dumb things I've heard kids say I've never had one claim that a real Pokemon was fake. That deserves a prize. I wonder if that kid has ever completed the Pokedex (or if he Game Sharked it complete then didn't bother to read it).

    EDIT: Just realized the full implications. This kid said Bulbasaur isn't a real Pokemon. He thinks Pokemon number 001 isn't real.

    Wow... never had that happen. That's sad and hilarious at the same time. I have had some of my kids at work ask me who Mewtwo was, but even so they're fairly knowledgeable about older generations and they've never tried to tell me that real Pokemon are fakes.

    I believed the trick with Mew hiding under the truck in Firered. So I got a friend to trade me a pokemon with cut to leave the ship docked until I got surf, and went back there, and saw the truck. Of course, I only got a Lava Cookie.

    Yeah... My reply to him was that he should Google Search Pokémon Red and Blue, and he told me immediately "Those are fakes. Couldn't you tell from the graphics? Only the people who make the REAL games have access to the technology to make the graphics the way they really are. That's why they have bad graphics and honestly, poor attempts at putting fake Pokémon into a game. I mean, "Drowzee" and "Hypno" are just ugly, yellow and disturbing ripoffs of Munna and Musharna. Come on, you really need to do your homework man...".
