"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"

That seems to be the case for the older Pokemon games anyway. I'm sure you all have a handful of super frustrating times while playing GSC back in the day! So, what are your most frustrating memories from the metal generation? Vent below!

    Once I knew what a Shiny Pokémon was, I happened to be in the route just below Blackthorn city and a Shiny Wild Teddiursa appeared in tall grass. I managed to hurt it a bit and I was ready to catch it, when the message about the current box being full displayed on the screen. I think I left Pokémon for months after that.

      Whitney's Miltank, 'nuff said. That thing was ridiculous. Or maybe I was just bad...

        My first run through I didn't save enough berries to help the sick miltank! I know it's not a critical point for the game, but I'm a completionist so spent ages backtracking through the routes to find berries again.

        Honestly though, GSC is my favorite generation and I don't have too many frustrating memories.

        The worst memory is battling lance with his 3 illegal dragonites. I used feraligatr and a whole lot of revives and full restores.

        I didn't realize I couldn't get a second chance at catching Suicune after you knocked it out, and as such I could never get not only Suicune, but Ho-oh as well. So I had to start over my game which had like over 200+ Pokédex entries I had gotten all by myself. It wasn't too awful since thankfully I could store my team in Stadium 2, but for young me, it was still tough to do.

          I finished the league, make my team very strong like lvl 70-80 and my save just disappear... ._.
          When you spend like 100-150 hours in a game that's hard. :(

              I think the worst thing for me was all the rumors that went around about ways you could get Celebi or Mew or whatever. They were all completely fake, of course, but myself being young and stupid, had to try each one of them.

              Oh, and how about those ice puzzles in Ice Path? I got stuck on the first big ice floor puzzle for way too long.

                Clair. I was never properly leveled and she doesn't even give me a badge for winning right away. Wild Pokemon around Blackthorn are too low leveled to be of any use and I never got a Dratini because I'm no good at the Game Corner, so I always had to pay out the ears for revives and pray that I get a few good critical hits on her stupid Kingdra.

                  For some dumb ass reason I thought Miltank evolved into Magby because Mag came after Mil in the Pokedex and my dumb ass naive 10 year old brain wasn't smart enough to be like 'herp derp Magmar Magby" so I trained a Miltank to level 100 and it didn't evolve and I was so MAD.

                  i think it was struggling to defeat whitney and not being aware of type advantages and other strategies other than just going all out attacking. i must've lost to her sooo many times back then.

                    Whitney's Miltank and Chuck's Poliwrath... Back then, I barely trained my Pokémon, I just skipped as much battles as I could.

                    I'd also have to say a mix between Whitney and Clair. Whitney was stupidly hard and her Miltank was just the icing on the cake. Not going in with a strategy was my biggest mistake against her. As for Clair, her stupid Kingdra made me so mad to the point where I actually threw my game across the room. I'm pretty sure she kept critting me with Hyper Beam :(

                    I completed my Pokedex, had like two full boxes of level 100 Pokemon and a bunch of shinies and when I wanted to pick the game up again a couple years later, it just told me that the battery run dry and the save was lost. <_<

                      That it's not on VC yet.

                      Going round Kanto was a let-down to be honest.
                      All the decent landmarks were gone, and closed down.

                      Accidentally released my starter (Totodile) my first time through Gold. Had to use a Wooper the rest of the way.

                        Grinding in general sucks, but grinding for Red is so damn tedious. I try to get my Pokemon to around 77, but all the wild Pokemon are all in the 40s, and they give so little EXP. I had to grind for so long that I found a shiny Tangela and I was forced to use my Master Ball that I was saving for Ho-Oh to catch it (since Tangela could run, and all my Pokemon would have one-shot it). If only Gen 6 EXP Share existed in GSC. A Lucky Egg would have been a bit helpful as well.

                          Battling Whitney's Miltank brings back flashbacks. No matter how prepared I think I am, I still struggle against it.

                            Going through Whirl Islands for the first time, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing lmao. Grinding for Red was really tedious too and Whitney is always annoying to fight.

                            Chasing down the Legendary Dogs. This is the one part of the second generation's legacy that I truly cannot stand - they introduced the concept of roaming Pokemon. Cue several tedious, frustrating hours of chance encounters followed by swift exits as I fail time and again to capture them.

                            Also, solving those tile puzzles in the ruins was hard for me as a child, and they never unlocked anything particularly special, which was disappointing.

                            Honestly, I can't remember a part of the game I loathed or had a difficult time with to the point where I'd call it the worst memory. If anything, my worst memory is turning on my copy of Silver a few years ago and discovering my save file from when I was 11 was gone.

                            If I had to pick an in-game moment, I guess I would say Morty's gym. I had a hard time figuring out how to maneuver through the place and even when I did, Morty was a tough cookie. Lost a handful of times, haha. Everyone else complained about Whitney's Miltank and my issue was always Morty's Gengar. And Chuck's Poliwrath tbh, but that gym puzzle was much simpler, so it can stay off my muk list. ;)

                            I don't have a particular worst memory of any play through, but I have never gotten a shiny from the secret egg in my dozens of play throughs of Crystal. Kinda sad tbh :(

                            Three words: The legendary dogs.

                            I hated chasing those things.
