    Forgetting to save, being overloaded with Eggs, doing pointless stuff in a battle, et hoc genus omne (fancy version of etc.). We all have those moments (I think).

    I have one example of my own: I've just started Pokemon Black Version. I was checking out my Pokemon's summaries when I noticed something: Most of my Pokemon had that all-too-familiar PKRS sign. (YESSSSS!! BEHOLD THE POWER OF MY POKERUS! BWAHAHAHAHAAAA!) However, I accidentally turned off my DSi. Unfortunately, I forgot to save around that point, and not only were my Pokemon significantly lower level and my Pansage wasn't yet back from the PC (Three words: Dream World waking), but the Pokerus was nowhere to be found. In anger, I then proceeded to repeatedly bash Hilda into a fence.

    I hope you learn from my mistake, folks. Feel free to post about your own moments like that.

      When I forget to save, thinking I saved then entering a battle with a Legendary and accidentally killing it.

      Lol This is hilarious! :D

      As for the OP, yes I have these all the time. For example two pokemon died in a nuzlocke of mne recently. I thought they could handle one more turn (but in my head I was thinking, "There will probably be a crit, won't there?") and sure enough... D:<

      Also, I occasionally forget to save, and one time I ran away from a shiny mienfoo (I caught a glimpse as I was fleeing)

          I've forgotten to save in the Elite Four before in DP... Had to start all over again even though I had just beaten Bertha. It was annoying.
          Also, there was a time in battle when I stopped mid battle for some reason, put the DS in sleep, came back 30mins. later and forgot that I was facing a trainer. So that's why I couldn't catch that thing...

              1.Playing Nuzlocke.Cheren beats me when I get my starter.
              2."Wow its thundourus!My first legendary!Better use my master ball.I'm probably gonna get another one."
              3."If i'm going to complete my pokedex i'm gonna need to trade for a snivy , but all of these guys want under lvl 9 reshirams except for that one that wants a thunderous...TRADED."
              ((All I had in mind was completing the pokedex , and my thunderous was weak anyway.))
              4.Aciddently using a potion on the wrong pokemon during the elite four.

              Mostly incidents of not saving the game (especially during long stretches of level grinding), forgetting I'm in a trainer battle and can't catch the other Pokemon, and using the wrong moves because I mindless just press A to get through a battle (one time I tried to use Fake Out like five times in a row xD)

              I ran into a Shiny when I was starting a new game for funsies, so therefore two things happened. 1) (their fault) I didn't get my Pokéballs yet, and 2) (my fault) I couldn't save the shiny even if I had a Pokéball.

              Now this isn't so bad, but I was so pissed and still am because I have never run into a shiny ever again...:c

                Happened to me twice,
                1. I had a linoone holding my only amulet coin, and it used sleep talk which made it use fling and I lost it .
                2. My linoone had a one-day strain of pokerus, and I had no idea what it was or what to do with it.

                  1. Didn't select good pokemon to fight Whitneys Milktank, and under leveled, then forgetting if i disabled Stomp she still has Rollout which is a even badder thing!

                  2. Used a master ball...on a shiny Rattata.

                  3. Searching for the shiny Charmander in Viridian Forest...hours wasted searching

                  Two moments when I was playing Black were this:

                  Using my Master Ball on Reshiram... I should have used it on something harder to catch like Tornadus. Yeah, I was such a noob.

                  Running from a Shiny Boldore in Twist Mountain, which was bad cos now I missed out on an opportunity for a good-looking Shiny.

                  I never have a problem with forgeting to save thankfully. Im pretty good at that.

                  I, however, am that person who thinks that if I keep pressing A, the game will go faster. So i select the wrong moves a lot.

                    There are quite a few:
                    Encountering an Abra in pokemon blue and using a master ball to capture it, just to prevent it from running away.(Was my first time playing pokemon in english and i had no idea master ball was super super rare)

                    Had a wild encounter with Entei in the grass and accidentally selected the run option.

                    Opening a game hoping to see my badass team but pressing the new game button in trying to fasten up the process...

                      After playing for an hour and a half without saving, I accidentally used my masterball on a Magikarp.

                      A MAGIKARP!

                          I left my 3DSXL on sleep mode with Pokemon in it. When yuo leave DS games in a 3DS, it sleeps but the timer still runs or something, because now I have an extra 24 or so hours on my game that I haven't actually played. x:

                            Getting back into Pokemon after 5 years of being out of it... this is going to be a hard learning curve...
                            Here is what I look like, in case you were curious.
                            Babalon is my mother, and she loves me.
                            I'm an initiate of a secret society... Hmm, do secret societies have websites?

                              I accidentally threw my Masterball at something random, I think it was a Golbat or something. I was like oh crap, so I shut the game off. Hadn't saved in like 2 hours and 3 gyms.

                              Mainly saves. I tried to beat the game once without saving (I played for over 7 hours straight) and I accidentally killed all three legendary bird (this was back with pokemon red), released my starter near one of the last gyms, and replaced some of the best attacks for HMs (Like Flamethrower with flash). Needless to say, I got so fed up with messing up that I quite before completing the E4 because I used my last revive on the wrong pokemon and was defeated.

                                I tried to do a speed run in ruby and then kept getting beaten by Winona's Altaria making me lose time since I had to level grind my Pokemon to beat her!

                                  I remember playing HG for almost 3 hours and the damn game froze on me. I was beyond pissed that I just quit and never played again. The game has been in my DS for 2 months lol I haven't even touched it since i can remember.

                                    I tried to show my sister a Pokemon after I beat the league to level him up. My sister slapped the 3DS out of my hand and it froze, meaning he was now back where he started: Level 1.

                                      I've accidentally run away from all sorts of rare Pokemon because I wasn't paying attention. /vietnamflashbacks
