We have all had those moments while playing Pokémon where we stop and say "You've got to be kidding me." An instance that reminds me of this is when a rare wild pokémon faints from poison or a recoil move after you've tried 5+ pokéballs on it.
I myself have lived through too many of these moments and I figure it's time to just laugh at them.
If you have any FML moments while playing any kind of Pokémon, feel free to share! Here's hoping for a lot of laughs!
- Once on a trip, my friend and I were playing our Platinum versions. He had a bunch of rare pokémon on his version that he wanted to trade to my fairly new game so he could restart his game and keep his good pokémon. Among these good pokémon were a bunch of legendaries but the most valuable was a naturally ocurring, shiny, lvl 5, ADAMENT-natured, Magikarp. While on the trip, I lost my Platinum version and thus ALL of his great pokémon. FH+ML.
- One day I traded one of my rare Pokémon for an Aerodactyl through GTS Negotiations and felt accomplished. Later, I went to Twist Mountain and the fossil man gave me an Old Amber. FML.
(I won't lie though, ^that one was my fault)
- When I was introducing my 6 year old cousin to pokémon, we started by battling each other in Pokémon Stadium. One of the matches was close and I decided to use selfdestruct in order to eliminate each of our pokémon while keeping it even. On the turn that I was about to use it, my cousin switched his Pokémon "by accident" to a Gengar. My selfdestruct killed me and didn't touch him. My last Pokémon was a Machoke with only fighting and normal moves. FML.
I feel like there are a lot more but I want to hear yours first!
