When I first saw my sister playing Pokemon, I thought the battle screen was a kitchen and the Pidgey was feeding stacks of hamburgers (Gust) to the Charmander.

I spent a week trying to figure out where Professor Oak was.
For some reason, I thought that Bulbasaur and Squirtle couldn't evolve (stupid Ash) and so I chose Charmander and then was stuck at Brock. Partly also because I thought if I trained Pikachu enough it would harm Brock's pokemon.
I thought that if you want to catch something you just throw the ball like that old man did.
I thought Growlithe evolved by level until it was Level 87.
I thought that Dewgong was weak to Fire and could use water and learnt the hard way.
I thought that you shouldn't catch legendaries so I used the masterball on a pidgey (stupid second movie)
I thought the daycare would confisticate your pokemon.



Yup, I was pretty stupid.
I loathe Gen V. I am being optimistic for Gen VI and hope that GF creates"gym" secret base.

Back in Gen 1 I was 7, so as one would assume, I sucked. So, having the too much of the same types of moves, using the masterball because I did not realize what it was, killing mewtwo because I was tired of him recovering all his health when trying to catch him, and using Pokémon that were outclasses in every way by others.

Since I am a true Pokemon fan since the beginning, I never did stupid things in Pokemon.


Oh please, everyone was an idiot at some point; they either used a Master Ball on something that didn't deserve it (either something horrible (Wurmple, Wingull) or something deceptively easy to get (Dialga, Reshiram)), or had some trouble with physical/special, or didn't always use status moves, or thought level affected catch rate, or mixed up verb tenses... (It should be "Since I was...")


Then again, I'm, not everyone.
I am the only true Pokemon fan. If you can't accept this, take your jealousy away from my presence.

I used to throw away nuggets because I didn't know they could be sold for a premium.
I like English dubs.

What do you mean by "beginning"? Do you mean since Satoshi Taijiri was a little kid who caught a tadpole before you were born? Or do you mean when he first thought of Cable Monsters and got rejected?

You must have done a mistake. Like not walking in the fastest path to the professor in your first game. Perfection is impossible.

I mean when I did my first playthrough. Teehee.

Perfection isn't impossible for me.

Cut, Ember, Flamethrower, FireSpin on a Charizard. Eventually the Ember evolved(read TM) into a Fire Blast

Then I realise the Pokemon in the cartoon were allowed a billion moves to use while we were only limited to 4. OTL

On that note, Charizard(mine) vs Blastoise(Gary)

Stat changing moves were absolutely useless, except for Sand Attack, Minimize and Double Team. Why would I want to waste turns not doing damage?

Careful with Therian guys, he is about to choke on his own ego.

I killed the only two shinies I ever encountered without even realising they were shiny. One was an Articuno.
