My best moment has to be catching Pokerus for the first time.

I remember i was training against wild Pokemon on Mount Silver, then when i went to the Poke Center i was mashing A as usual so i wasn't really paying attention to what the nurse was saying, but i thought she said more than she usually does. I thought i must have imagined it. Then i got the call from Elm and i didn't know what the hell was going on. My Pokemon is infected? What? o.O The following day i thought i must have dreamt it, because i couldn't find any proof that it had actually happened haha. It wasn't until much later that i found out it was a real thing, and discovered what it does.

    Winning the Bug Catching Contest with a shiny Venonat. For the record, shininess doesn't add anything to your score.

    So far, no feeling has compared to the satisfaction I felt when I first caught one of the roaming legendary Pokemon. My palms were sweating so hard as that ball was shaking, and when it stopped shaking and clicked I almost shouted or joy.

    That was so satisfying, and was definitely the highlight of the game for me. Also memorable was catching both of them and then being allowed to go to the Bell Tower to catch Ho-oh.

      I will always remember Gen II as being the first generation where you could play as a female character...That and discovering you could go to Kanto after you got the 8th badge

        Defeating the Elite Four, over, and over again. I was ten years old, this was amazing for me. And just the overall nostalgic feeling I have every single time that I start the game up.

          Encountering a roaming legendary for the first time really gave me a jump. I mean it was completely out of the blue and frankly scared me as a little kid. I had no idea what was going on when Entei suddenly appears at level 40 and I was like level 20-24ish. When he fled I was very confused though and didn't know what it meant until a buddy of mine explained how the roaming trio worked.

          Also the realizing that once you finished off the Elite Four and the credits rolled you had to go to Kanto and battle all the original gym leaders, basically giving you an entire game to play through again was pretty awesome. It really didn't dawn on me that this game was really big for a handheld back in the day, especially for elementary school kids like myself.

            Going to Kanto for the first time. It blew my mind when I heard the familiar tunes of that old place!
            Well, that, and fighting Red. Amazing stuff!

              Fondest old moment? Or fondest new moment?

              As for old moments, I would have to say finding two shinies (in two different locations) in the same day. Oh, Drowzee, Tentacool, how fun.

              Newer moments, a good team wipe with Nope, the Magneton.
              Since I'm new here, a bit of backstory.
              I have had Pokemon R/B/Y, G/S/C for quite a long time now, and loved the games growing up and even today. Nowadays, I've put myself to the challenge of beating Pokemon Stadium 2, which i'm almost done with, except Round2 Poke Cup is hard as all getout.


              Nope is by no means a sweeper. Sure, he stalls with the best of them, with his moveset of Reflect, Doubleteam, Mimic and Thunderbolt. But today was a bit different.

              I was fighting in the Master Ball level of Round 2's pokecup this afternoon, the fifth round if I recall.
              They sent out a Girafarig, I lead with Nope.

              I started stacking up Double Teams, they did the same. About the fourth double team in, they used agility, then Baton Pass. I have 6+ Evasion under my belt now, they have 4+ evasion, with 2+ speed.

              They switch over to Arcanine, thinking it would destroy poor old Nope.
              Nope starts using thunderbolt to deal out some damage and miss almost every shot, they use fire blast once, Nope. twice, Nope, nope. Three times, Nope, nope, nope. They miss every shot.
              Nope uses mimic on their fourth fire blast. He misses.
              Nope thunderbolts again on their last fire blast, it hits them and paralyzes them.
              One more thunderbolt hits them, they're in the red now. They use dig. Nope puts up reflect. They hit him, it does barely anything. Leftovers heals a little bit.

              To be funny, I use fire blast. It hits and makes them faint.

              Back to Girafarig.
              They set up once with double team, I thunderbolt.
              Another double team, another thunderbolt.

              At this point, they pull out a Scizor who thinks they're pretty hot stuff. Steel against steel, this could work.
              Did I mention I hadn't used up all those fire blasts yet?

              One fire blast.
              Critical hit.

              Although I still consider the second generation games to be my all-time favourites, and although my Silver (which is gone now, unfortunately :( ) is probably the game with the most hours on the record, I honestly don't have an awful lot of moments that I actually remember. I reckon the biggest culprit of that is probably due to how I was relatively young during all the years in which I played it, so only the really special, fond and annoying memories have really stuck with me. For instance, I remember like every part of the game in which I was majorly stuck, and spent a long time trying to search for the way forward/out of whatever I got myself into, with the main one being figuring out how the heck I woke that gosh darn Snorlax up. It's hard to figure this stuff out when you're only just learning how to read properly in your own language :(

              But yeah, back on track. My fondest memory is without a doubt the moment in which I finally found Lugia after a long-winded search. Already explained this story countless times, but basically after watching a battle between my brother and one of his friends, in which his friend used a Lugia and totally wrecked my brother's otherwise relatively powerful team, I decided to finally go out and search after Lugia. And I don't know if others had as hard a time as me, because I honestly don't remember if its location was mentioned at any point in the games (even if it was, I wouldn't have understood it :p), but I reckon that wouldn't have been the easiest task for me today either. I mean what is up with Ho-oh being located within a town in the game, in a huge-ass tower with people being all like "nope lemme see yo rainbow feather plox" if you try to enter it before you've obtained the Rainbow Feather, making it obvious that something of significance is in there, while Lugia is out in the middle of nowhere within a maze of caves, with the possibility that you could've gone out there before obtaining the Silver Feather, and having no clue that that'd be where Lugia could be found. But then again, they might've said it in-game, in which case I'm over exaggerating a bit. But still!

              Anyways, back to the story. I finally found Lugia, and it turned out to be incredible. I kept it around for the rest of the time I owned Silver by trading it to a friend, starting the game over, and then trading it back whenever I'd make a new game, because I'd honestly grown so attached to it. That's also why Lugia is one of my favourite Pokemon, as well as my favourite legendary :p

                I never got to encounter the roamies, encounter the birds (g/s birds), and I have only encountered kanto legendaries in crystal. So my favorite part was having Suicune who battled me at level 49 take out half of reds team itself including his pikachu. It took two surfs to faint Pikachu and 3 of his thunders to faint my Suicune. It took a few battles but I ended up winning and crushing red with my Suicune

                Walking down the path I know. Banning Pokémon just because you don't know how to beat them is just plain wrong. It's like banning alcohol because it makes ugly people pretty.

                  Fighting the Legendaries! Nothing beats the adrenaline rush when you hear that epic music, especially when it catches you off guard in the grass.

                    In Pokémon Silver, I tried to catch Ho-oh once. I had spent my Master Ball on Lugia already, so it wasn't that easy. After a very long time of stupid moments, it Struggled itself to death. So I turned off my device and continued to where I didn't start catching it yet. I decided to try it again later.
                    When my starter (a Feraligatr named Kroko) got to level 70, I wanted to try it again. I got through the whole tower and attacked Ho-oh.
                    Kroko used Surf. Ho-oh had ½ of its HP left.
                    Kroko used Cut twice. Ho-oh's HP was in red.
                    I threw an Ultra Ball. Caught first try.

                        I'd have to say it was going to the Kanto Region and facing Red after all the fun.

                                I enjoyed revisiting all the kanto gym leaders, Idk why but it always felt weird seeing misty on a date after watching her in the anime so long.
