I wouldn't call this a fail, but more of a surprising-angry thing.
I was battling Whitney on my new Soulsilver file, and something amazing happened. Here's the battle.
Gym Leader Whitney wants to battle! Whitney sent out Clafairy! -insert cute Clefairy cry here-
Ethan sent out Chewy! (my totodile, and yes, my character is a boy, explanation later.)
Chewy used Ice Fang! A critical hit! -40 hp to Clefairy-
The foe's Clefairy used Metronome! The foe's Clefairy waggled its finger and used Judgement!
I was like 'JHGFDRSLBAFW' (Translation: HOLY FLUFF!)
Chewy fainted! Ethan sent out Electra! (my spiky eared pichuuu)
Electra used Volt Tackle!
The foe's Clefairy fainted!
Whitney sent out Miltank!
Electra used Volt Tackle!
Both Pokemon fainted.
Feed this Pokemon a berry or suffer from guilt. >:3

My favourite thing is probably the berry guy, when I first talked to the berry guy, my god I was in tears when he screams, "Shard de berry! Shard de berry!" and spins in a circle.

one thing that annoys me, is gym leaders using Hyper potions\full restores, god damn. I spent about twenty mins versing the Ectreak city gym leader...and the mahogany city! -.-

First time I played Pokemon Diamond in 2007. I had not yet gotten into competitive battling yet and I was still shaky at type matchups. When I was fighting the Elite 4, I couldn't tell what type Aron's Drapion or how to counter it. After 2 days of being completely swept by it, I finally found that it is weak to ground type moves. The only ground type move I had on my team (again, I was a noob) was EQ from my Torterra. I switched to my trusted started as soon as Drapion reared its ugly head. To my surprise/shock/super-rage, the blasted thing knew Ice Fang and OHKO'd my Torterra. I did the only thing a then-middleschooler would do; ragequit and not touch the game for a week.

Good was when I caught a female Buneary for my Dawn-inspired team. Bad was when I didn't save my game when I caught the Buneary. Ugly was when my file got corrupted.

My good moment was when I was EV training my Skarmory.. and I came across a Shiny.

My bad moment was when I was EV training my Skarmory.. and the Shiny used Selfdestruct.

My ugly moment was when I first came across Zubat.

It was a good moment when i ran across a shiny in Platinum.

Well, this is kind of strange, but early on when you trade bellsprout for Onix; I wanted to name it Rocky, but you can't rename traded Pokemon. Well, I loved that it was already named it. I would have shouted "Yes!", but it was 10:00; I wasn't supposed to be awake or on the DS, and my brother was asleep.

Now that was kind of a weird Eureka!

Yeah, like the beggining where you are going back and forth so much.
My name in the games is always Black, so it's weird in Pokemon Black when you go to the TV and see the Adventures of Black.
Cool roleplaying game->

One of my most proud moments of playing Diamond version was obtaining DPBox <3 Yeah, it made my game freeze and I couldn't battle with it in my team, but it was so cool.

I also loved ARing to walk through objects (which is also how I got DPBox), resulting in discovering Spring Path (before I had unlocked it on my game) and thinking it was a hidden area. Oops.
I am in the process of leaving PC and IRC channels associated with it.

Good moment? Back in April 2010, I was wandering around on Route 34 in my HG, looking for a Ditto for no reason. I was fleeing everything, until I found...


Since I had beaten the game, I caught it in an Ultra Ball in one shot. (LV.10 Drowzee.) I evolved it and now am in the process of training it. (His name is Pinkinator. )

My good moment...I never did have one.

A bad moment...probably the fact that I made a Shiny Tentacruel faint/running away from that exact Pokemon. Man, that was good and all, finding a Shiny went like...
(flashback ripple)
I was surfing around Route 42 or something...
When I got into a battle, the fateful battle...
The Shiny Tentacruel appeared!
I quickly attacked and afterwards...
I threw a certain Poke Ball variant that I forgot.
It escaped from the ball.
I kept throwing Poke Balls...
It kept escaping.
And so, I attacked, thinking that it wouldn't do a lot of damage, simply making its HP bar go red.
But it was a critical hit, and it fainted.
(flashback ripple)
That was probably how it happened.
If not, well, get rid of the critical hit bit, and it fainted out of an attack, simple. Or...I ran away from it after trying to catch it a few times, thinking that I'll find another one someday. Right.

I don't have a terrible experience...well, no.
