Most embarassing moment EVER:

On Pokemon Ruby - It was 2004 and I discovered about Rayquaza.
I reached the top of the tower after 2 hours and saved in front of him.
The first time he shows up... BOOM, shiny!
I made him weak, then I paralyzed him with ThunderWave but at the end, guess what?
... NO POKéBALLS!

That was the sickest embarassing moment while playing Pokémon, not only because I missed the shiny, but also because I had to get down the tower, buy some Timer Balls and Ultra Balls (I've had already used the Masterball for Latios at that time) and climb again the Sky Pillar!

I spent 40 minutes looking for an Abra when I realised I had been looking on the wrong route! Also I made the derptastic move of using a Whiscash and a Mamoswine, thinking the ice would cancel out grass weakness. It didn't.

In Pearl when I used a single Pokemon and it took me forever to beat the game. I absolutely could NOT get past Gardenia and I could never beat the E4. Eventually I ended up beating Cynthia with Struggle. :\

I remember when I first got Diamond I just skipped through the instructions and then I couldn't find out how to open the menu because they changed it from start to Y!
Yup. This happened to me as well.

Another embarrassing moment that happened to me at the beginning of Diamond, is that I had no idea that the DS clock tells time in a different way than your usual clock, so I actually had the time entered incorrectly. When I first started Diamond, I noticed it was night in the game (I was playing in the morning) and actually thought that the game was messed up. Eventually I figured out what the real problem was.

I guess it was when I had a problem with the fact that they changed the Start- Select buttons to X - Y haha. I remember I was so confused haha. At the beggining it made me hate the game, but now I am used to it ! lol

Well when I was playing Pokemon ruby, I really neglected training my Pokemon and buying items. The result?
I had 0 items right before fighting steven, and my pokemon had taken a big beating, and I really didn't want to go back to the start. Groudon (yes yes ik I noob) learned rest right before and I had to use that to heal up

I forgot to say another thing about that episode:
It was more embarassing than ever for me because when then I reached the Top of the Sky Pillar again I resetted the game continuously for 2 hours trying to encounter Shiny Rayquaza again... eventually I severally damaged the Battery of my Game Boy Advance SP and I had to bought another one... and my mom was so desperated that she said that she would buy another one only the next birthday (in 2005!) but fortunately my family was already split in 2 so my dad bought one and a year after my mom bought for me Pokemon Sapphire instead of another game boy LOL.

I can't remember if it was Diamond or the first Mystery Dungeon, but I had a guide book for one of those games in my bag for some reason. It fell out of of my bag while I was trying to open my locker at high school! I thoroughly scanned the area with my eyes like a cyborg to see if there were any witnesses that had to be eliminated. Luckily for me no one was around to see my embarrassment and not a single person had to be killed that day.

Never really had an embarrassing moment closest thing was not knowing they changed the pause from start to Y (I tried every button one by one)

Bringing only a Poke Ball and an Ultra Ball to capture Uxie........
Or does starting with Chikorita count? 'Cause that wasn't good.
Or what about losing to my rival in the first battle in Platinum?
How about bringing exactly 1 revive into the Elite Four with an under leveled team?
No ice Pokemon in Platinum?
Thinking that a Kadabra would be sufficient to beating Fantina?
My misadventures of raising a Magikarp from level 5 to Gyradous? (no, that was kinda cool)
Thinking that I could actually find a fair GTS trade?

Probably the last one...

Does having half of my team (I had a team of four at the time, anyway...) fainted by PI Carlos' Horn Drilling Goldeen count? I didn't think it'd hit me twice with it... out of two tries.

There was also that double battle with those Ace Trainers, but really, that was me being an idiot in not fainting that Drifblim...

Both of these took place on my most recent run in Platinum, too... maybe I'm losing my touch?

In Platinum..... That dumb pond with high level Magikarp. I wanted a lvl 100 gyarados. I had 1 rare candy. I found and caught a lvl 99 Magikarp...... I gave it the candy.

Then my finger slipped in the excitement of perfect evolution and......... I pressed B.

Level 100 Magikarp wall..........

When I played Pokemon Platinum, I saw my first Shiny Pokemon. It was a Shiny Shinx. Not knowing about Shiny's at the time, I killed it. Worst mistake ever.

Can I just say those two Ace Trainers on route 215 were not funny? I literally cried for hours over that. I couldn't get past those guys. I swear at one point I had tried to beat them so many times I had lost all my prize money.

After several hours of going through Mt. Coronet, as soon as I reached Dialga my D.S. died. Andddddddddd.... I hadn't saved at all.

After catching a shiny Metapod and evolving it to a Butterfree in Pearl for my sister, I forgot to save and her DS died. She cried non-stop for about three hours.
