We've all had those moments. A moment where you want to scream "Eureka!" across the neighbourhood because of an amazing acheivement or successfully capturing a shiny.

Then there are the depressing ones. Ones that make you gloomy and grumpy for a whole week. Like losing to a gym leader or champion at the last minute and forgetting to save. I'm certain that's happened to me before.

Finally, there's the ugly. Something that wanted to make you never set your eyes on it again.

What are your tales from the 4th Generation?

The Ice Cave in HG/SS seriously stumped me, so I had to look up a YouTube video on how to solve it to navigate.

Candace's Gym in Diamond and Pearl was insane for me. >.< It took me over an hour to finish it.
Aside from that, I remember being stuck forever trying to figure out how to get Fantina to come back in DP xD I wandered around forever and never realized that you had to talk to the Grunt in Pastoria.

That happened to me too, I had to watch a video on YouTube as well to solve that puzzle.

As for Gym Leaders, Candice's was so hard. This is why I hate puzzles in Ice-type Gyms. Bugsy, Fantina and Volkner also get a special mention.

So what makes you scream in either D/P/Pt or HG/SS? It could be a certain wild Pokemon with annoying moves or abilities. A trainer, champion? They don't have to be battle related either. Strength puzzles made me scream and rage my head off.

Or having to head back to the Pokemon Center which is ages away, because you forgot to bring a handy supply of revives and potions?

Discuss your 4th Gen rage moments here!

I didn't really have many rage moments tbh, although the only one I can recall and sort of consider to be a rage moment is when I quit playing the game for about a week because I I would non-stop get bombarded with zubats, gravellers, golbats all through Mt. Coronet.

...now that I lay it all out, I suppose it was a rage moment. xD

When I didn't have any clue how to finish the Distortion World puzzle in Platinum. It took me about 10 minutes before I rage quit, and finally looked up a video on Youtube on how to finally finish the puzzle. Another thing that had me raging was the Champion battle. I got down to her last Pokémon, Milotic, before she managed to slaughter my entire team. I was way underleveled at the time so it wasn't unexpected but still I raged.

Zubat >.> so, so many Zubat. Make the Zubat go away?

Any time flash is required to get through a cave (I always go the cerulean way to the power plant because of this).

The fact that there's almost nothing useful around to go against Gardenia.

Fisherman with a team of Magikarp.

The list goes on but those are the main ones.

Zubat in the caves and the use of HM moves make me mad.

Also, Fishermen with Magikarp-only teams and when I have to waste an item on something with a status condition.

I'm just a little crazy sometimes.
OK, a lot crazy all the time.

My romhacks and Essentials games are on hold until Essentials is updated.

Catching Suicune, Latios, Raikou, etc.
Raikou was the worst- he was at literally 1 hp and I couldn't catch him with my ultra balls.
I eventually gave up and asked my friend for some of his 99999 master balls.

You just don't understand how true this is. Haha. Personally, I found all friends to be annoying to receive a call from. It was interesting at the start, but after a little while you start to see the same old repeated phrases. The one that annoyed me the most though, was definitely my mum, haha.

Lucian. I used over 20 revives just on his Alakazam. Also, Cynthia's Garchomp. The others were easy for me but Garchomp was troublesome.

I definitely didn't scream, but finding out that I needed Rock Climb to make it to the top of Mt. Silver really bothered me. I had finally built up my perfect team to take on Red, but I ended up having to change my strategy because not only did I not have anyone with Rock Climb, but none of my 6 party members could even learn it.

That, and trying to hunt down and catch the roamers in Platinum and HeartGold was almost scream worthy.

When I was catching Lugia in Soulsilver. I was down to my last Ultra ball, and it didn't make it. I also forgot to save beforehand, so I had to start at the start of Whirl Islands. :l

I've seen threads like this and after some browsing I don't think there's one here yet.

Have you ever had that moment where you suddenly fail to notice something? Like for example, in Diamond & Pearl you need to go to the Lost Tower to get Strength or not knowing where to find that Tyrogue in HeartGold & SoulSilver's Mt. Mortar?

Discuss your failure and facepalm moments here!

Yeah in Platinum in the after game, trying to find Dialga and Palkia. I had acquired the Orbs and headed straight to the Spear Pillar. I had forgotten to talk to the elders, so they didn't appear.

I spent a whole hour, silently hoping they would appear. After a while I gave up .
And having no clue how to get an Exp. Share until my friend mentioned it ._.

Well, I was playing Diamond when I was younger, and I couldn't find out how to open the door at the Wind Turbine place, I think it is called the valley window works or something, just because I didn't explore the whole town XD

Oh, I remember doing that ages ago xD! I couldn't be bothered to talk to the Galactic Grunt at the entrance because I thought he'd block me off like the grunts at the bridge . You're not the only one :D...

Darn Gym in Cerulean. Misty disappeared, and it took me forever to realize that she was at the cape. Blegh.
Another was when I didn't realize you could get Rock Smash before even finishing the first gym. I did a lot of backtracking to get that one...
