I remember the event that completely drained all of the luck that I will ever have in my life.
It was pokemon yellow. I finally reach the platform where Mewtwo was standing. I engage. The battle starts. I sent out Seaking. I immediately move to the items button. I scroll down to the Master Ball. For some unknown reason, maybe it was excitement, maybe it was a lag in the game, I'm still not sure, I press A on the Poke Ball.
I s*** you not. First turn, one PokeBall, I captured Mewtwo.
You have no idea how much an achievement this was for a 12 year old nerd at the time. I spent the rest of the week trying to prove to my friends that it actually happened.
