When I walked up the steps of Mt Silver to find Red waiting for me. Everything up till then wasn't too shabby either :p But that battle was the defining moment that I'm willing to play through GSC all over again.

My personal favorite moment was when I was training to evolve a Pokemon (a Slowpoke named Dumpsie) when I found a shiny Gligar. That Gligar (Clyde) remains my only shiny to date. I remember getting the shiny Gyarados and wanting more shiny Pokemon goodness. Catching Clyde was so satisfying.
"The human sacrificed himself, to save the Pokemon. I pitted them against each other, but not until they set aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are." -Mewtwo

The most memorable moment for me was when I first stepped into Pallet Town. On Gold.
I don't know why, it just struck me and hasn't left since.

Walking around Kanto in the Evening listening to this great great music. Just the feeling of unlimited time, no stress and doing things in your own tempo really gave a new dimension of feelings through the Day/Night system. Very relaxing.

It happened many years ago, when I was but a wee lad...
Playing through Crystal Version, my very first Pokemon game, I inevitably ran into the Red Gyrados in the Lake of Rage. The battle was fierce, but rather one-sided, and despite my excessive use of revives, Red Gyrados kicked my butt and K.O.'d my entire team save for my level fourteen Togapi. Expecting to loose, I use metronome for what I thought would be the last time. Long story short, Togapi annihilated him. That was by far the most satisfying moment ever. I laughed for the longest time...
Did you see the frightened ones?
Did you hear the falling bombs?
Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter
When the promise of a brave new world
Unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

My best moment in these games was my first shiny ever :D Pokemon Gold was my first game (after that Pokemon Blue), and I remember getting back to New Bark Town heading to the Lab of Prof. Elm to get my Togepi checked out and I stumbled upon a Shiny Pidgey in the Grass. I never saw anything like this, so my first thought was; hm? Sparkles? Slightly different colour is this something special? So I caught it :3 (to find out later you could catch a shiny Gyarados in-game, but that was different since everyone could get a shiny red Gyarados while my Pidgey was a super-lucky encounter of 1/8192).
A friend of mine was sitting next to me when this happened and immediately said: this Pokemon won't be like this forever/or when it evolves (but yeah ofcourse it was still shiny when I trained it to a Pidgeot). I even remember this moment better than my first Pokemon League win (when I beat Lance), so I consider this as my best memory :3

And from that moment on, a journey started in many different generations of Pokemon to come, with alot more shiny-luck So now I'm a dedicated shiny hunter when I have the time :3

I remember starting the game and staring at Kris - I could play as a girl! It was awesome.

A close second has to be the whole Lake of Rage storyline. I loved it.

Yeah, storming Team Rocket's base and bumming up their whole operation was definently one of the high points of Gold/Silver/Crystal. A close second? Finding out you can go back to the Kanto.

My favorite games of all time. Typhlosion is my favorite pokemon of all time, I just love essentially all of the pokemon, and the additions like the day/night cycle, breeding, genders, special split, shinies, the fact that you can go back to Kanto, etc. Gen II really revolutionized pokemon.

The time in silver when I forgot to visit mom before leaving and she called.. I felt guilty back then so after that I always told her before I left.. It really was a great moment realizing that youve rushed things and you need to slow things down once in a while..

To be honest, for me it was finding Violet City. I was pretty young when I got Crystal, and I remember being on the phone with a friend who had gotten Crystal as well. Neither of us were able to find Violet City. >.<

Then after two weeks, I finally found it. I felt like a God.

After that incident, everyone started asking me to catch their legendaries for them. Bahaha.

Completing my Pokedex for the first time in Gold was pretty exciting. That was the first Pokedex I ever completed, and it took a lot of effort to get there (including playing through an entire Yellow version file just to get Omanyte), so I was pretty psyched.

I also recall training each member of my team to level 100, and somewhere along the way, making each of them beat the Elite Four independently with no items. My team was pretty bad, so it was actually a decent accomplishment. Of course, I didn't finish up with my last team member until right before my game's battery died, so I was pretty sad knowing that I only had a short time left with my Pokémon (I had already gotten the "Time Not Set" message/had clock problems by that point).

Other random memories:
-Clearing out Team Rocket and getting through the sliding ice puzzles between the seventh and eighth gyms. I mainly have fond memories of that because it's one of the last times I can recall playing Pokémon with a reasonably large group of people (in this case, at a New Year's party).

-Beating Red for the first time. I actually turned off my game before beating him the first time around because it ended up being far easier than I had expected it to be, and I wasn't really ready to have fully "beaten" the game yet.

-And as a final memory, I recall the first two times I played Gold. I recall starting up the game, picking Totodile, and venturing along the road to Mr. Pokémon's house. I started my game in the evening and captured a Hoothoot (the second member of my permanent team), and then saved and went to bed. When I turned on my game around lunchtime the next day (I had time to play then because I left school for a couple of hours for a dentist appointment), I was amazed that it was actually daytime in the game. For whatever reason, I didn't expect time to actually progress in the game--I thought the clock would just pick up from where I had saved. Even though it's a fairly insignificant event in the grand scheme of things, the wonder and excitement of starting Gold, which became my favorite Pokémon game of all time, sticks with me to this day.

Best moment had to be facing Red, hands down. Standing upon that snowy mountain to find someone they gave no hints of whatsoever, the fact that he exchanges no words with's amazing.

My only wish after battling him was the opportunity to do it again. Seriously one of the most epic events in any Pokemon game ever.

Not knowing that I could go to Kanto and then going to Kanto. It blew my mind as a kid and set me up for such a huge disappointment when I found out that Ruby only had Hoenn and nothing else.

I think it's when you encounter Red for the very first time on Mt. Silver. It's so unexpected when you very first play the game, he simply says his trademark "... ..." and suddenly you're not only launched into battle, but you're launched into a battle with Lv80-70 Pokémon, with the sinister Champion theme!

Also when you first step into Kanto and check your Town Map. That was a pleasant feeling

Pokemon Crystal, all 16 badges in my case, and marching up to the top of Mount Silver. Fighting Red felt like fighting a past version of myself the first time I did it. Didn't win the first time, but it was pretty close. None of the battles I've engaged in since have felt so intense, even in DPP when Cyrus was trying to destroy the universe.

For me, it was a personal one. I rented Pokemon Crystal at Blockbuster (RIP) when I was 7. Little did I know, this version could not save files!

So I did everything to preserve my save file. I stayed up till 1 AM with my Game Boy in the charger the whole time. I had made it to Whitney (at that time, an accomplishment) with just a Croconaw.

Fast forward a few years later when I finally got a real copy of Crystal for Christmas. I remember training for two weeks after finishing the 16 gyms to beat Red. The Red battle was tough, I was down to just a Feraligatr with 20 HP, having no Revives because I had lost so much money from losing to Red.

It sucks to know my old save file is gone. I also can't play any of physical copies of Pokemon around my brother because he will make fun of me for it.
Go play Pokemon Theta Emerald EX!

I'd have to say either winning the lottery or catching my first vukpix. I've always had a fondness for foxes.

A lot of great moments here - it's making me nostalgic :') I'd have to say the fondest memory I have of Pokemon Gold was taking part in the bug contests ! I know quite simple, but I the bug contests in National Park at night time seem to stick out in my memory most. I got so competitive xD
