Stupid things you used to do when you were younger/ new to pokemon

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.

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

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

RareCandying my mons to 100

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

Hold/Mash B to incrase capture rate.(Still do that sometimes (-_- |||) )

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.
