        your game is not bugged, because there isn't the "bug"
        (sorry for the bad joke)

          MILTANK STILL HAUNTS MY NIGHTMARES. I swear, that thing is the reason why I'm constantly over-leveled no matter what game I play because it just scarred me for life.

          Also that stupid ice cavern, and then Clair, although going through the dragon cave was really cool.

              In Pokemon gold I ran into Suicune totally by surprise, mannaged to trap her in a whirlpool on my first turn. Things were looking good... then she jerked the rug from under me and used roar. I never saw her in game in that game and had to leave an empty seat at the table with only 2 out of the 3 legdndary dogs.

                Saving the game after defeating Lugia in Gold. I had nobody to trade with, so I never got one in Gen 2...

                Also losing my shiny Tangela and Krabby when my Crystal cart finally died. I thought that cart was immortal...

                I HATED being forced to save when switching boxes in Bill's PC since I was always afraid of losing my boxed Pokemon.

                  Using almost all my ultra balls on Snorlax, and still couldn't catch it. In the end I had to faint it.

                  Literally came to this thread to see how many people posted about Whitney... LOL

                  Aside from her though, I always thought the phone calls from the NPC's were annoying. On the one hand, some of them re-battled you which was nice if you were tired of grinding on wild Pokemon or if you needed some money for whatever reason... Also swarms and that one guy who would call you back to give you water stones. So I guess a somewhat necessary evil?

                  Hated getting interrupted mid-game to hear how many berries the dude's Qwilfish ate or how it took down a Rattata tho. ):

                    "Oh hey, a shiny Nidoran! Well, this is the bug catching contest and the odds are only 1/512; I'll just catch one later!"

                    Got away safely!

                    …I have no idea why I thought the odds were 1/512. I think the guide I had might have mentioned that somewhere in reference to, like, shiny Pokémon obtained a certain way, but still…
                    Also, I'm fairly certain the game restricts encounters in the park to only bugs during the bug-catching contest, which makes this even worse.

                    I want to say Miltank, but honestly I always forget where I have to get the potion for the Ampharos and lose a lot of time in this area.
                    Also, I don't know if it's just me but catching Sudowoodo isn't easy. It always get out of that Pokeball D:

                      As Pokemon Silver was the first Pokemon game I ever played, I didn't know what was a Master Ball. When Elm gave it to me I thought I could get more of them later on so I used it on a Ditto and realised in some days that I'd never get a Master Ball anymore.

                      Another bad memory of this game was that I began to clone Pokemon and it was going well until I did something wrong and my Lugia and Typhlosion disappeared XD I will always regret that :(

                        Probably battling Red the first time. I was soooo unprepared, especially because I didn't know jack squat back then about how to build a good team. I had an overleveled Typhlosion due to my "let's just make the fire starter strong" complex, along with Lugia and a few other Pokemon I forgot the identities of. As strong as Typhlosion was, it was knocked out by Blastoise after barely defeating Snorlax. Lugia and the rest of my team got creamed.

                        After that I traded up some of my stronger Pokes from RBY (an old Alakazam I got from a friend, and a really strong Jolteon), took my rage out on the Elite 4 for a couple weeks to grind my levels, re challenged Red and won. So I guess it wasn't all bad.

                        Ohhh that's sad :( then again from the looks of it if you cloned it then it might have had the same fate as Lugia and Typhlosion.

                        Actually shame that Ditto wasn't shiny. Would make it very worth it! Alas. The things we do as children!
