Say one thing that you have learned from playing one of the pokemon games. Also say how you learned that lesson.

1. Always bring an escape rope or a pokemon with dig when you go into caves.
Got lost in the SeaFoam Islands in firered version.

3.-Don't evolve your Eevee into a Espeon if it has an Adamant nature.

My Espeon was the weakest pkmn in my FR team.

Never turn off the power just because you killed a shiny you can try to capture again later.

I turned off the power while I was playing Pokemon Colosseum because a shiny shadow Hitmontop killed himself using Shadow Rush and (at that time)I didn't know that you can try to capture the shadow pkmn again in the game!

7. Do not trade your manaphy, ever. trade phiones!

Uh, just because it's shiny the first time doesn't mean it will be the second time.

8? Call people stupid for using a Masterball on a Pidgey/Ratatta/Sentret whatever.

10- Never use cloning glitches without the full knowledge on how to do them
I lost a 10anniv Celebi while attempting the pokemon emerald cloning glitch by having my file corrupt and delete itself.

11- Never use a legendary as your first cloning victim until you get the hang of it.
I lost my high level Lugia in pokemon silver trying to clone it.

12 make sure to save your game before battling any legendary pokemon! (I made this mistake in pokemon blue and I didn't get one of the legendary birds)

Actually...you can try to capture again a Shadow pkmn in Colosseum/XD if you killed it the first time; you just need to wait until the Cop finds the person with the the pkmn(Colosseum) or when Mirror B. appears(XD). So if I haven't turn off the power, I'd have 2 shiny Hitmontops now.

13.-Don't pal park your Mightyena if it's EV trained in Sp.Atk.

It's useless with the new Physical/Special rules.

25- Never throw anything, always sell.
26- Don't waste your vitamines (calcium, iron) in level 5 pokémon, it won't do anything and you will just lose it.

31. In Gold/Silver/Crystal, always clone a shiny Pokemon that can evolve. I caught a shiny Zubat and just let it evolve without cloning it, so I could've had 3 shiny Pokemon when I only had one...
