^Read Title^

Well , I remember my , like 3rd run on Sapphire . I was in my room , watching a Pokemon film (very addicted back then) my 5 year old little sister gets the game . She didn't know any English , but she somehow reseted my Game , while I was about to Trade the Sceptile and Kyogre plus a Salamence from it to my Fire Red ....
Yes , she restarts it , picks Torchic (she was watching the series sometimes with me , and she really liked May ) . And saves over it (how did she know to do that ?? )

Man I got so furious , I almost kiled Her while shouting ' WHY DID YOU RESTART MY GAME??? ' She said she knew no English etc. etc.

Well , post what were your most nervous momoents .

When i found out i couldn't find all the HMs.I was like "ffs, it's great its a long game, but does it have to be an epic quest for each HM??", especially the ones in Fuchsia City

Agh, trying to catch a lot of Chanseys for the Lucky Egg. Such a nightmare, I gave up on that endeavor pretty quickly.

Probably when I tried to train a Dratini, it took me forever to get it from level 15 to level 25 and then I wasn't about to sit around and train it to level 55

So I guess I just sorta gave up on it.

I guess when I tried to catch Kyogre a million times in my Emerald Version,,,
whenever I ran out of balls to catch it, i always say "ok you little scum fish, if you don't wanna be caught, then DIE!!!"

I hope you immediatly reloaded your game after that. :S

Umm.. probably accidentally forgetting to link over my Lv.100 Latios to my friend when I started a new game on my FireRed, then not noticing it until after I had saved. Ugh.

Trying to catch Articuno in LG. Took me like 60 ultra balls to do so and by then I felt like really giving up. :/ Even now it's still a pain to catch.


Fighting Tate & Liza (?) using a Blaziken was also a pain as they always ended up killing it within a turn. :( Took me like 30 tries before I finally won.

And the BF ended up being really annoying when I was so close to either finishing a facility or reaching a Frontier Brain; I was most mad when I was a floor away from battling Brandon before dying for some dumb reason. ;; I haven't gone that far since.


And lastly Wallace's Milotic....

Oh, there was many times.

Trying to catch latios, I break my camecube w/ a gameboy player...

I finally caught Latios, go to find Regirock. He's shiny (W00t) but I forgot to save before hand. I failed to catch him so I shut it off causing me to loose latios.

I dont know how it happened but I had been playing around with emerald and XD, I ended up loosing the Latios I caught and SAVED, my level 97 gardevoir, my level 99 swampert, my Zapdos, my shiny Mighteyana, and my Ultra-1337 Shiny Bulbasaur. I was so pissed.
They were all high level, so it was the party I had been using for most of my stuff. When transfering it to one of the games I F**** everything up... the entire party was lost QQ

EDIT: One tiem I pissed my friend off sooo bad in LG. He transfered all his Pokemon to LG just so it would be easier to play, and I deleted everything in his PC/Party except for a level 2 Ratata... Then I saved.

Exploring the Safari Zone. I forget who the common Pokemon was in these games, but running into the same thing every three steps is not fun.

All the water. I was like, "Okay, my Electrode is already 10 levels higher than the rest of my team, do we need any more swimmers and triathletes?" Worst is the fact that I'm a completionist by nature, so I had to make sure to defeat the whole lot of them. And did I mention Tentacool?

Wallace. Double Team. Made me wish I actually used the Shock Wave TM on someone.

Once, When I was doing Elite four for like the first time and I had a sucky team. I had too many weak pokemon, however I was againts the champion and I didint have any PP on ANY of my pokemon, and I save right before fighting the Champion, so It took me a LONG time to get out of there -.-

I don't really remember having any nervous breakdowns or stuff, but I get very nervous when fighting Wallace... I start sweating and after a while, shaking, and when I win, I start running around the house.

And Niprop, I know how it feels. Once, when that happened to me after like 15 tries, I started sweating, and you might say it was pretty loud. My parents wouldn't let me play for a while cuz they thought the game makes me aggressive XD

This must have SUCKED.

I get really, really aggravated when I run out of repel in any cave and I'm only halfway through it. I don't like random encounters to begin with, but the encounter rate in sapphire makes it even worse.

It was taking forever to catch Articuno. I had been at it for a long time and for several sessions (saving in front of Articuno, trying with all my ultra balls and restarting from my save point when something went wrong) Well, I got super upset at my 5th try at that when all of Artucuno's PP ran out and it killed itself with struggle. I banged my GBA on a table and the screen cracked. Oops. My mom refused to buy me a new one so I did yard work for my neighbors until I could afford a new one. :/

And there's the time when I was out of pokeballs but thought I had one left to use on a Diglett. Turned out it was my Master Ball. I started from my last save point but lost hours of work. D:

when my sister restarted my ruby when i was in victory road.(that was the second reset). the first one was when i was stuck in victory road and couldnt get out and back then i was a complete newb so i restarted it without lookin at a walkthrough. the worst thing is i had a lv 80 blaziken b4 the elite four which i think is pretty good

For me, It's got to be forgeting to save affter a huge wild goose chase catching Mesprit, which I finaly achieved with a timer-ball method. That really pissed me off. Then, a few weeks later, my copy was stolen anyway!

When I first went through Sapphire, I was having trouble with Norman. So, I went out and caught a Nincada, got a Shedinja, and trained the crap out of it because of Wonder Guard. When I battled Norman with it, the first move he used was Faint Attack. ._.

Don't get me started...

In Sapphire, a friend had told me you can get Pikachu in Petalburg woods. So I spent about two hours looking for it, but I couldn't find it. So I phoned him up and asked him if he was sure. He said yes, of course. So I spent another hour looking. Eventually I used the interweb to find out you couldn't catch Pikachu in Petalburg woods. So, to get my revenge, I told him I'd caught one, and he wanted to see it. He came round, I showed a Pikachu which I had traded over from Leafgreen and then I stole his game cartridge and deleted the data. Sweet, sweet revenge.

When I couldn't catch Groudon. Again and again I tried, saving before I went in to it. But in the end, I beat it instead of catching it. BAH. Elite4 wasn't as easy to beat without it.

Hmm... I had quite a few.

1. You know those professors that give you stuff for the amountof pokemon you have?

I caught 32 Ekans and 12 digglets to get one of the items. After i caught them i went there thinking i would get some hardcore item.
'Hey nick! when you catch 60 unique pokemon ill give you a special item!' Unique? wait that means different? '
For 3 days i thought of ways to torture my Gba.'

Another time was when i bought a dratini. I bought one and realised it was shiny. Whilst jumping up and down in happiness i dropped my sp It froze. I hadn't saved.

Aaah, this kind of thread. Here we go...

Any time I fight the first Regi I see! They are hard to catch, and for some reason, the first one I fight (Usually Regice, but I have fought all three first at once) and it always takes... SIX HOURS! The second only takes one hour, and the third about fifteen minutes to catch.

Anyway, I caught Regice after 6 hours of play, and then I go downstairs to eat dinner. A half-hour later, I came up, and saw my SP shut off. It had run out of power, and I forgot to save.

After I fell through the floor to get to Rayquaza for the millionth time in Sapphire. Despite completing the Hoenn Dex and working on the National Dex, Rayquaza remains uncaught on my Sapphire. On the other hand, my little brother had absolutely no trouble getting to and catching Rayquaza. Figures.

Trying to catch a legendary bird without using a Masterball.

No, that's actually kind of fun for me. I just save in front of any stationary legendary with a sack full of poke balls, and keep resetting until I catch one without really doing anything to it. I've gotten Rayquaza, Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Zapdos, Moltres, and Articuno this way. Now, the aggravating part for me is trying to catch a fleeing legendary such as Latias, Entei, Mesprit, Cresselia, without Master Balls.

You should have gotten your own DS. Never break your own equipment or anyone else's unless you can afford to replace it yourself. I've only broken one PS2 controller, and that's it. And that's why I don't play Jak 2 anymore.

When my rival beat my Starmie with his Charizard. We were both down to our last Pokemon and he somehow beat my Starmie with Fire Blast. I would of tried the E4 again after but I spent all my money on Full Restores and Revives, so I had to restart my game because I didn't feel like usin the VS Seeker to get more money.

Pretty much the same for me, instead it was Groudon. I used my Master Ball on Kyogre.

lol I know how you feel dude, that was one frustrating game. I never even got Jak 3 after watching my friend get extremely frustrated with it.



I think the most annoying part for me was when one of the elite four's in Ruby with his stupid Shiftry used double team over and over again. After the first time my attacks stopped working, and after he used it more I had no chance.

For me, it's probably when I trained an entire team of epic pokemon to lvl 100, EXTREMELY powerful, and yet somehow I STILL lost to my nubbish friend. I haven't spoken to him since XD

I spent over an hour searching for a Cubone with the Rock Head ability (it was always Lightning Rod!) on a FireRed file (for my actual team). A few weeks later, I started a new file and went to the Pokemon Tower to try to get more Pokemon for the National Dex (this was after the Elite Four, so I had a full team). I caught a Ghastly and decided to stick around to see if I could get a Cubone. A minute later, I found one and caught it. Guess what ability it had? Rock Head...

I have somewhat of a hatred towards the game/Pokemon species now.

ya dude that sucks, I absolutely HATE redoing things on any game. I give up playing for a couple weeks when that happens.

I've seen 3 different shinies in my life, and EVERY frickin time i go to catch it, I get a fricking critical hit and kill it. I hardly ever get critical hits and it just happens to always happen on shinies, Argh!!
