    I put Ice Beam on Gyarados because I thought it was a powerful move. I also put Power Gem on Gigalith. Yeah, I thought they were good fits and that there wasn't such a thing as attack and special attack. I was wrong, terribly wrong.

      Well, to be fair, a lot of the names have stupid pronunciations. Haha, I hate so many of them.

      I'm not certain that the anime pronounces all the names correctly either. I really don't think that the first 2 a's in Rayquaza are long a sounds, I think its just the first one.

        Pronounced "Meganium" as "Meganeem". Don't do it anymore but I did for years.

        For the longest time I thought Geodude evolved into Onix.

        Didn't know Golem and Poliwrath were in gen 1 until about a month ago.

        Thought damage was simply your attack, plus the move damage, minus the enemy's defense. Yea, it's way more complicated than that XD.

          That Slowbro evolved into Slowking.

          ...Yeah, I think how I discovered that wasn't right was via Mystery Dungeon? Went to Slowbro's page and got the "Evolution: No further" thing. I was very confused and went to look it up, and... Lesson learned~

              Aside from the mispronunciations, I always thought that the in-game trainers were actually real trainers. Like, as in real life people. So when I encounter a trainer, I used to think that I was actually battling someone, at the exact moment, with the exact name and the exact team. Would have been a bit interesting though, I guess.

                  When I was very young playing Blue and Red, I didn't care for Special Attack, Attack or Defense, but just chose cool pokémons with cool moves. Thankfully the game wasn't hard untill I met the Elite Four..

                    When I was young, me and my entire school always pronounced Suicune 'Soo-ken'.
                    I still think Swee-coon sounds pretty weird though, and when I first heard it pronounced by swedish Prof. Oak in the 4th movie, I was like 'wat'.

                      For the longest time I thought status moves like Hypnosis and Supersonic had 100 accuracy, because whenever the AI used them, they never missed. I recently found out that these moves are actually some of the most inaccurate moves in Pokemon (not that that's ever stopped the AI).
                      Also, for whatever reason, in Black and White I initially thought Darmanitan was a Fire/Fighting type. I mean, he learns a lot of fighting and punching moves, so it just seemed natural to me. Turns out he's pure Fire type. If only I had bothered to look at its summary screen...

                        When I was younger, I always thought moves that could freeze you just had a lower chance of happening than those that can burn, paralyze, etc. I think it was because you don't see a lot of ice moves until later in most of the games, and even then I just did not see it happen a lot.

                          That's a good point. Burns, paralysis and poison were so much more common. And when you did see an ice Pokemon, they didn't usually get the freeze off.

                            I was pronouncing 'Flamethrower' wrong for like 9 years

                            Also, I just discovered that Sharpedo is the evolved form of Carvanha. I always thought they were not related

                              • When I was growing up with Gen 3, I thought that Hoenn was "Ho-ey-enn".
                              • I used to think Elektross and his evolution line was Water/Electric.
                              • I miss pronounce a lot of Pokemon, like Kyogre or Suicune.
                              • I used to think that Skarmory was from Gen 3.

                              I actually used to think Golem was a pokémon without a family, and that Geodude and Graveler were standalone. I was surprised after a few years of having watched the pokémon anime and realizing that Golem evolved from Graveler.

                              Another one is that until Gen 5, I used to think that Poison (the status condition) cut Attack by 25%. Don't know why, but that's what I used to think.

                                I thought the Magcargo line was first introduced in Hoenn when I was really young.

                                  When I was younger and I first started watching my older brother playing his Blue version, I thought the attack "Sonic Boom" was pronounced "Soy-nic Bomb".

                                  I had no idea what a sonic boom was.

                                  I also used to think Suicune was pronounced Swee-soon.

                                  Swee-coon just sounded weird to me. Too harsh. xD

                                    I used to say Suicune as "Soo-ih-sine", then "Soo-ih-soon" after my friend pronounced it like that. I only found out watching Pokemon 4Ever it is "Swee-coon".

                                      I didn't read all of them so this might be a repeat. I always thought that stat altering moves (such as leer and growl) were just wasted turns. I was so confused as to why my opponents would use them. I also thought that gastly/haunter/gengar were psychic types. Battling Morty was always so frustrating... oh yeah and that geodude evolved into graveler, then onix. Lol just remembered another. I thought that Wooper evolved into wobbuffet

                                        I always thought Dunsparce evolved into Gligar.

                                        And- when Gold/Silver first came out- I though Pinsir evolved into Heracross. Scyther got Scizor- so I didn't understand why its counterpart wouldn't get an evo as well.

                                        I never used stat changing moves because I thought they just boosted the stat by one point. When I learned that two stat boosts actually double the stat, everything changed...

                                          I used to think kingdra was one of the first gen pokemon. I think because seadra and kingdra look similar.

                                          I used to call rattata rat-a-tat.

                                          And I used to think if my pokemon was asleep or confused that mashing the A button would help them wake or not be confused anymore. Even though I know it doesn't help, I still mash the A button out of habit XD

                                          Throughout literally all of Sinnoh (my first playthrough ever) I thought my Luxray was a dark type, and was disappointed when it wasn't. I also called rattata rattattata. Still do half the time, whoops. Other than that I can't really remember. I'm sure I mixed up what types were strong against what though. (and now am doing that with fairy types haha)
