KOing a Shiny Zubat, using Chikorita my first time playing (and coincidentally my first pokemon game ever, have you tried dealing with the first 2 gyms not levelled properly using only chikorita and trash mons?), also releasing an Articuno by accident :|

    My absolute worse memories was losing both my Silver and Crystal versions in the past. Silver was lost to the void under a staircase and Crystal was....destroyed.

    Ingame wise fightning Lance was a nightmare and not realizing that I had ran into a shiny Hoothoot once and simply ran.

      For me the worst memory is losing my Crystal savefile after 11 years. I had a complete Pokédex along with a Mew from my Yellow, a complete Unown dex, a Shiny Magby from the Odd Egg and a Lv. 80 - 90 team. I was shocked as I saw the savefile was destroyed - apparently the internal card died out.

      In-game, it's grinding in general after I saved the Radio Tower. Getting a Tyranitar was pure hell for me compared to BW2... Getting ready for the league as well if I intend having a Lv. 50 team and fighting against Lance's three Dragonites even if I have a Ice type token...

            My worse back in the day was the fact that all these people use to tell me that you could get a Pokemon to level 1000. Some said it was just in red and blue then some said there was a way in gold and silver. One kid even showed me something on his mobile phone saying Venusaur 1000 making me believe this so called cheat was true and cry as a 11 year old boy then as I thought how he was explaining it was impossible. I nearly sent a question on it to Professor Yew (someone in a UK Pokemon magazine that answered questions kids sent in). About over 20 people locally told me that they knew a cheat and had level 1000 Pokemon.

Lost a handful of times, haha. Everyone else complained about Whitney's Miltank and my issue was always Morty's Gengar.
                You think Morty was hard for you? Imagine this. You just got into Goldenrod. You had just caught some nice Pokemon on Route 35, but you had also caught this stupid, ugly-looking pig-elephant-thing, that the only reason you even bothered catching it was because you were told to "Catch 'em All". You were going to go check out the Gym, BUT, being the clever little kid you were you decided to go check out the other buildings, talk to people, stock up on a few items. Well, in the Goldenrod Department Store, this guy offers to trade you a Pokemon that you don't yet have in return for the "butt-ugly pig-thing" as you had taken to calling it. Obviously you wouldn't refuse, right? Catch 'em all, after all.
                So, now you had just traded that pig for this little dude, not really that cool but a lot better than the pig, and, on a whim, you put him on your team for Whitney's Gym battle. Wow! That little dude is SO TOUGH! He just one-shotted EVERYONE! Even that Gym Leader that your friends say is super-hard! Not only that, but he levels really fast. A lot faster than your other Pokemon. So you think, "Man, this Machop guy is really cool. Let's keep him on my team permanently." So you do that. Not a bad idea, except you put him on your first slot, and barely switch him out for any other Pokemon.
                Now your Machop, now a Machoke, has just hit level thirty. Suddenly, he's not listening to you anymore! Oh well, you'll figure it out later. Lets fight the new Gym Leader, Morty... Bad idea. Every single one of your Pokemon is severely underleveled, except for your Machoke, who isn't listening to you! Well, you're not going to stop now! Let's go on! I'll get the levels back off of these creepy old people. WHAT IS THAT!? WHAT SORT OF CREEPY POKEMON IS THAT?! A GHOST-TYPE? WHAT'S A GHOST-TYPE?!?! WHY DID I JUST GET SENT BACK TO THE START?! Ugh, finally at the Gym Leader. WHAT?! THIS MORTY GUY IS TOUGH! Guess I'll just have to hope Machoke listens to me. Go, Machoke! Use Punch Attack!!! WHAT?!?! What do you mean he's sleeping. Come on man! You're getting beat up! Machoke, use Dropkick! WWHHHAAAAATTTTT!?!!?!1?! WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING?! MACHOKE LISTENED TO ME AND IT DID NOTHING?! WHYYYYYY?!?!
                Repeat until Ghost-Types have become cemented in your mind as the most powerful Pokemon type in existence because it took you LIKE A GAJILLION TIMES TO BEAT THAT GENGAR!!!

                That is my experience with Morty.

                    You maaay find this silly, but... I played the games in English while I didn't know that language back when I was a kid, so... not understanding more than half the dialogue was frustrating? XD

                    Oh! And the constant phone calls in the game (most noticeably Youngster Joey and his Rattata ) kept interrupting my gameplay. XP

                    Well... I could also say that not being able to capture Celebi due to not having the event or GS Ball really upset me, seeing how I was/am madly in love with her. -_-
                    (No, not in that way! oO I just loved how beautiful she is, keep seeing her as a female legendary despite having no gender, found her adorable in the movies, and seeing her makes me relieve good memories of my childhood. ^^)

                      My worst memory is a stupid shiny Rhyhorn at victory road. I accidentally knocked it out. My first shiny and I killed it :(

                        Training for Red is really annoying. Despite as much an effort I may go through, still I can't reach his Pokémon's levels... And everything that appears in that one route is either a Weezing or an Arbok. So I'd say that it's the worst experience I went through during my constant play-throughs as a child.

                        Morty's Gengar can be pretty annoying if you don't have the right Pokemon or if you aren't leveled enough. Other than that, I just didn't like how weak some of the wild mons in Kanto are, like come on :(

                        Those batteries and Whitney's Miltank. Other than those, I'd have to go with the battles with Blue and Red.

                          my worst memory is realizing shiny pokemon are average.... shinies have a 1 in a lot chance of happening when an exact set of IV is given. so why not have it happen if all IV are maxed? it has the same chance of occuring, yet it would make catching one way more special. but no, apparently they are only useful for bragging rights...

                            By far the hardest gym battle.Once Whitney's Miltank starts using rollout it's basically who is next. Also I hated Goldenrod city as I took ages to find the squirt bottle,the very first time I played.Still think Morty is the coolest Gym leader ever and facing Red was also a cool throwback.

                            Whitney's miltank of course. And the doors puzzle underneath Goldenrod City really annoyed me too. Worst of all, the solution is really simple lol...

                                Larvitar being found so late in the game just annoyed me to no end in those days. I wanted to use it so bad, but getting one took like forever.

                                  Morty's Gym took me a good month or two to beat, not only because of the gym floor, but because it was also long before I realized what I had to do: level up and find Pokemon that can beat ghost types. Again, Silver was my first Pokemon game overall, so I was still VERY new to the games then, and therefore, had no idea what I was doing at the time but fight other Pokemon.:3c

                                  Another was defeating the red Gyarados because again, no concept on Pokemon, Silver being my 1st game, and therefore, had no idea of what shinies were, until I became familiar with the Internet.

                                      Whitney's Miltank... enough said. And then releasing my Croconaw by accident because of the bug catching contest telling the player you couldn't compete with more than one Pokemon, so I deposited all mine into the PC and somehow released Croconaw in the process.
