What stupid mistakes did you make playing when you were younger?

In blue I used my masterball on a bellsprout. What are some of the stupid things you did?

Go 2 hrs in a game of Platinum from the start, forgetting to save, then turn the DS off. I almost cried :(

I started a new game in SS two days ago and forgot I had to delete the old file first so I couldn't save :( I was like 4 hours in lol.

When I was really young I'd put like 4 attack moves of the same type on each Pokemon.

I for one didn't care about natures at all (now I'm uber picky) but worse in Pearl I traded a Palkia for a female Hippopotas since I didn't know how to get one so I could finally have a black Hippowdon. I was a troubled child.

IV? Nature? EV? I thought It'll be enough if I only trained pokemon to level 100. I'll be the strongest of them all. Gawd I was wrong.

Back when gen 1 first came out, I beat the game and had captured every Pokemon possible in a playthrough without the aid of trades and I started a new game, thinking all my Pokemon from the previous playthrough would still be there or on a separate save file.

One of several stupid thoughts I had back then.

I think everyone can say the same for this.

Made a full party of Unown because I thought they were legendary

Not quite as young for this one, but I used explosion on Cynthia's Spiritomb because I thought Explosion nullified type matchups

In Gold version, I got stuck in seafoam islands (I think that's the name, the one in Johto you access with whirlpool) because I tried to proceed without flash. I got so far, I didn't even know how to get out anymore so I just restarted my file, without thinking of escape ropes or getting all my pokemon fainted..

Also I removed my ho-ohs sacred fire with strength, because the PP ran out.
