Have you ever had a moment like that? Where you just stare at your DS like "No. That didn't just happen. I dreamed the last ten seconds of my life." Okay, a little exagerrated, but you get the point.

For me, it would be when I was facing my friend...with certain victory ahead! He switches into his final pokemon, an Amoongus and then...a critical hit wipes out my lead pokemon. He somehow manages to poision, then crit with a giga drain EVERY time. And every time, my pokemon die and his Amoongus just kept regaining HP. The battle quickly went from 6-1 to 1-1. I ended up winning, but it was still pretty ridiculous.

Also, when I was in PokeStar studios, I was trying to get the strange ending in Red Fog of Terror(can't remember which one), so I sent out my lvl. 100 Deoxys just to tank a few blows for all of the turns. Then, he got confused and beat himself up into a bloody pulp, before fainting. This happened three times. In a row.

Sorry to say, but this doesn't specifically discuss anything within the Fifth Generation, and is more or so a general Pokemon gaming topic, so I'll actually be moving this to the Pokemon Gaming Central section, for now. c:

Lol same. Or rather, I had 1 Ultra Ball. And all my pokémon were overlevelled for the area bar one, which was underlevelled. So I used about 8 hyper potions whilst trying to whittle down this Machoke's health...then Ultra Ball failed. That and how fire-type pokémon in the Battle Pyramid seemed to be immune to Meteor Mash. Like seriously, I didn't manage to hit a wild pokémon with that move for the entirety of my second challenge.

I found a shiny Nidorina in SoulSilver's Safari Zone. Much to my surprise, I caught it after 2 Safari Balls, since I was afraid that it would flee.

I got Pokerus in SoulSilver about a week or so ago. I was amazed that I actually noticed it when Nurse Joy told me, because my SS is in Japanese which I cannot read. I just noticed she was talking to me longer than normal, so I checked and sho nuff hoss!! This is an even bigger deal than it normally would be because in my Japanese Black 2, I got Pokerus, but didn't notice it till it was too late to pass on to other Pokemon. So yeah, glad I noticed it this time!

When I was playing HeartGold for the first time, I actually bought a used copy, but ignored the whole "you can't overwrite the save file" if you just start a new game. So, I went along my merry way and started playing, only to run into a Geodude with Pokerus about half an hour in. It was the first time I'd found any Pokemon with Pokerus without getting it traded to me, but then it dawned on me that I wouldn't even be able to save my progress, so it was lost forever.

The other "that did not just happen" moment I had is one I don't feel as bad about as I was playing a ROM, but I might've thrown my GBA against the wall if it happened on a real game. I was just going through Fire Red, and had gotten to the old man who shows you how to catch Pokemon. Sure, I'd only caught a few thousand in my day, but I guess I had to learn from the master himself. And when he went into his demonstration, this shiny Weedle showed up. I was left powerless as he caught it, knowing that I probably wouldn't see another shiny again for a long time.

I had just learned how to chain and was going after Ponyta (though I don't particularly like them, I do like the shiny form).
I was seriously like three encounters in, and walked to the next patch. It was just a normal shaking patch.

Boom shiny Ponyta anyway. :D
My first RE shiny that I actually wanted haha.

Yeah I have that "SCREW THIS" moment everytime I'm playing Voltorb Flip in HG/SS.

Seriously, why does Gamefreak expect anyone in the 10-yr old age group (majority that plays this game) to actually figure out how to play a cross between Picross and Minesweeper?

That's as stupid as expecting your baby to start walking the second it comes outta the womb. They really dropped the ball on that one.

Haha...I tried Minesweeper when I was ten. Was awful at it. Still am actually, but Voltorb Flip is slightly easier. Love that mini-game.
Finding Pokérus was another moment for me. I've had it about 3 times - once on Emerald (post-defeating Steven, so no biggy, as I didn't EV train), once on Diamond (my first pokémon I ever EV-trained was the Dragonite that caught it xD) and then again two years ago on HeartGold. Gave it to my entire team, always put them in the PC at night. They've still got it. Not really hard though, they've been sat in the Platinum PC since Jan/Feb last year.

I came across a Shiny Onix yesterday (only the second shiny I have ever encountered in the wild) in Silver and tried to work down its HP but ended up fainting it.
And then I realised I had a few cloned Masterballs with me.

I was tracking back in the game to catch Pokemon I didn't have the time to even bother catching. I got 5 crit captures in around 20 minutes. That's a lot for me.
Also, I check the stats of my Pokemon in the stat judges for the heck of it. Then the Shelmet I just caught on a whim had 3 Max IVs and outstanding potential. Really awesome stuff. :D

I got a weird copy of Platinum (probably glitched) where my Togepi hatched shiny without the shimmer and all the Gligar in the wild looked shiny with no shimmer.

Yesterday I came across a Shiny Onix at Victory Road while playing Silver. This was only the second time I'd seen a Shiny Pokemon (barring those Red Gyarados). So I tried to work down it's health but accidentally fainted it.
I don't like the Shiny Onix' colour but a shiny's a shiny. It'll probably be a few months before I get to see a shiny again.

Have you ever missed catching a Shiny?

Somehow, no. I'm always paranoid that it will happen, though, so I keep plenty of great or ultra balls around (depending on how far into the game I am).

I did forget about my shiny Bidoof, though, and deleted the save file. Didn't bother me much, honestly.

First time playing Emerald, I was done with everyone except the champion Wallace, I was willing to proceed to his room then save & use potions & stuff, but when I walked in I found myself automatically walking to him & starting the battle, & I was like "WTH I didn't even move & I need to use a Hyper Potion NOW!!!" & so I resorted to Save States & somehow managed to win, it was a PAIN but I learned my lesson:
Always save, whenever & wherever possible.

Oh god, this happened to me aswell. But not with a shiny pokemon.. No.. I had a fully EV trained crit chance Absol and deleted my pokemon platinum save game, which btw also had A LOT of pokemon from my original pokemon leaf green in it.

Needless to say I was a bit flabbergasted.

I got PokeRus in my SoulSilver from a wild Stantler. I didn't notice until I was back at the Pokemon Center. I also got PokeRus on my Japanese Diamond around the same time.
