Worst thing that has ever happened to you in Pokemon

Outside of having your save deleted, what was the worst thing that ever happened to you in Pokemon?
I hate everything.

I ran into a shiny Pokemon.
Being a noob, I thought I needed to weaken it before catching it.
I got a critical hit.
Shiny fainted.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

It's a tie between being a stupid young kid and saving part way through the E4 with a mostly fainted team and no healing items, and being older but equally stupid and forgetting to save for long stretches then powering off before realising (generally from rage-quit against an otherwise pitifully weak trainer who got ridiculous luck from critical hits and status abuse).
Another day successfully wasted.

I decided to play my original gold....first pokemon I ran into was a shiny. Needless to say, I had NO pokeballs....

Noland battle in Emerald's Battle Frontier:

I send Blissey, Noland sends Walrein.
Walrein OHKOes Blissey with Fissure.

I send Swampert and spam Earthquake.
Walrein spams Surf and manages to KO Swampert, but it's left with almost no HP.

I send Salamence. Earthquake. Walrein finally faints.
Noland sends Dewgong.
I attack, expecting an Ice Beam to the face. Instead, I am killed by Horn Drill.

After that, I never set foot in a Pokémon battle facility again (aside from the PWT).

Missing two attacks in a row due to Sand Veil hax and being eliminated from a national Pokémon tournament because of that was also VERY unpleasant, but it didn't traumatize me as much as the above battle.
