Oh, when I was playing emerald, one of my pokemon had been poisoned, and the screen shook every few steps. Needless to say, I had no idea what was going on and I must have been sobbing for about half an hour, thinking my new game was broken, when it fainted and the shaking stopped.
I figured it out about a year later. :P

I only leveled up Charizard, and somehow managed to beat the whole Elite 4 with it in Red (it was around LV 70, and the rest of my team was LV 45-ish Pokemon I caught in Victory Road.) In the same game, I killed Zapdos, Moltres and Mewtwo without saving, then used my Master Ball on Articuno. Oh, and I taught Charizard Cut.

It's a wonder I even made it through that game. DX

When I first started playing I thought that the games were based off the anime. :P

When I was around 8 or something I got my first Pokemon game (Gold) and I read somewhere that if you beat the Elite four you get a Charizard and a Mew ... So I did it and when I found out he never gave it to me I got really annoyed and didn't play for a month ... and I wasted a Master ball on a Ponyta ... Oh well.

A lot of these things are very common, on the pressing buttons for pokeballs thing, I wouldnt be suprised if certain button combinations for certain pokemon in the early games affected the rng to make it more likely to catch pokemon. When I did something like hold down a+b and an arrow I almost always caught pokemon and almost never did when I didnt press any buttons.

I always believed that there was a king unown if you did catch all the unowns, and I was like uncoding their symbols and means...

Also I used to train my Pokémons on Viridian Forest like to 30

I spent like 10 hours playing Red when I was a kid, and the next time I played it I accidentally started a new game thinking it wouldn't erase my previous one.

That Unown could actually learn something else aside from Hidden Power. :/ Kept that thing in my party for over half of the game.

lol I get what you went thru but mine went like this....

I bought my 1st poke game Silver and I kept chosing my starter and cutting off the game without saving. It took me 2 days to finally see the save option in the menu. T.T

when I got my first pokemon game, gold, when I was about 5, I made a random rap song about rare candy every time I found one. I also thought that if you went to Silver Cave at night, you would fine a green witch pokemon that evolved into a mewtwo at lvl 101

The first time I played through Pokemon Red (yeah the original) I had no idea where the Rock Tunnel was. So I walked in between Ceruelen and Vermillion until my friend finally showed me where to go.

i fought bock woith a partysimilar to this

Pikachu lv less than 15
pidgeotto lv 11
nidoran male
nidoran female
metapod
caterpie

i finally beat him with a good string of critical hits. Never used a mankey or a butterfree. i fremember i used tackle on onix woth nidoran male and it was like "Critical Hit...Its not very effective, onix fainted" i was like "Not very effective..... but i beat him!!!"

Ahhh good times.

Another stupid thing i did was get lost in the lighthouse in crystal.

But the stupidest pokemon thing i ever did was thiss....

One bay in first grade, i went to go print out a pokemon blue cheat, so i went to print selection yada yada.......

so long story short it didnt work and i prited over 150 pages (or more) of BS-use-strength-on-the-truck-and-then-fight-E4-151-times-cheats. i tried everyone. SO close to those pokegods.

I thought Blastiose could learn Hydrocannon when it reached 100. I spend at least 5 hours non-stop training it.

I SPENT HOURS TRYING TO GET TO THE ORANGE ISLANDS AFTER I READ A CODE FOR IT ON THE INTERNET.

When i was younger i thought that the longer you left the pokemon in the daycare the higher you pokemons level went.
So I left my gameboy on for a few hours(went to school)
and the levels didnt go up when i came back D:

OMG same. I had this pokemon handbook which was based on the Anime and it was like "you can catch these pokemon in the orange island" It had like all the legendary birds with and all these awesome pokemon. I was like 6 or something - This was Pokemon Crystal.

Plus the same age, I read on the internet all these tips for pokemon crystal. The one I mainly fell for was the Tony Hawks in Pokemon one, where you go to the place where Red is on Mt Silver and he wouldn't be there, then you'd suppose to go where Red was to be standing and Tong Hawks would skateboard by saying a trade for your bike and his skateboard. And if you said no he'd steal it anyway.

I felt pretty Dumb after falling for that.
One day I may make a parody on youtube about that!

Yeah, I did the same thing. >< I plugged my GBA into the charger so it wouldn't die, then left it like that overnight. When the Pokemon hadn't gone up one freakin' level in the morning, I complained to my grandma and quit. XD

Thought the same thing, only it was my friend's game and I thought I had broken it. Also everything was in Japanese so I had no idea what was going on.

Also thought that moving or pressing the /triggers/buttons would help you catch a pokemon. Stupid Lugia......speaking of lugia, I didn't know that you needed the silver wing to find him so instead I went into the whirl islands into the room where he would normally be and spent an hour or so running into wild pokemon, expecting him to randomly appear.

I thought Misty and brock would follow me when i got blue version
I also though the rival in GS was nammed "???" And i named him that, thinking i'd get in trouble if i "tricked the police officer"

I believed that Mew was the strongest Pokemon and Charizard evolves to Charmillionaire if you level it up to 255 and make it hold the Amulet Coin. Oh and that Jirachi and Deoxys on a Space Shuttle thing in Mossdeep. I also thought Pikachu was based on a rabbit for a short amount of time.

I thought Sun stone would evolve Eevee.

I had no idea how to get out of Viridian Forest and was frustrated for a couple of days.
I forget how i found the way out.....

I thought there was a Charmillionaire too....-__-

I thought if you talk to Nurse Joy and healed your Pokemon, like, a few more times, your Pokemon will be sooooo strong.

Now I only heal once and am annoyed with the boring process.

Haha same here. I thought morning-trained Eevee could evolve into Espeon, likewise at nighttime it could evolve into Umbreon. I was peeved by that.

I was really stupid, one time and was playing around with the boxes in and stupidly released my starter and i had not trained the rest of my pokemon. It all worked out because i caught a hoppip and that is how i learnt with good training a not very strong person could be powerful enough to carry a team and i also lernt to train all of your pokemon at even levels

I didnt know that i should go pick a starter at Elm's lab...

I used to think it was possible to join Team Rocket when that one guy in Red/Blue asked you to. I was sadly disappointed.

I also almost got to the max amount of money you could get in Sapphire because I heard the thing that if you did, you could buy a ticket and get onto the space shuttle and catch Deoxys. xD I think that's what started my obsession with said pokemon...

There were a bunch of other stupid things, but I can't remember them...

I did the same exact thing. My brother told me to do that so I did it and when I came home, they were the same level and then my brother laughed at me
