Default Stupid things you thought/did with Pokemon as a kid.

Hey this thread is basically about you guys writing about things that you thought or did relating to pokemon that when you think about it now is pretty stupid.
It could be you thinking that something did something if you pressed it or listening to something on the internet that turned out to be fake. Or maybe you thought a certain character in the show was a girl instead of a guy or a guy instead of a girl. Share your stories!

I'll start us off by saying this...
In pokemon red, I though that when my Pikachu fainted from poison while walking with it in my party in Viridian forrest, it meant that it fainted and I had to go find it in the forrest or else I would lose my pikachu forever... yes it's really stupid but I was young.

The very first time I played Pokemon, I thought in order to add Pokemon to your party you just had to make them faint. I couldn't understand why all the Pidgey I was defeating on Route 1 weren't added to my team. xD

I was also addicated to trying out all those random theories, like being able to find Mew under a truck near the S.S. Anne.

For a while I could not fathom why I couldn't get into the Pokemon League in Red/Blue/Yellow, until my brother explained to me what I had to do.

^this

Also, all my friends would play pokemon at school during recess and such. However, all of us also had our personal Gym that "we were apart of" since mine was Cerulean City, I had the biggest crush on Misty...

I still do to this day :x

^ This. xD Except I eventually figured it out 'cause the guy's all "YOU NEED THIS BADGE TO PASS" and yeah.

I always thought in RBY that the ghosts in Lavender Tower would pop out of the game and possess me or some stupid thing LOL. Seriously, it scared the crap out of me when my Pokemon couldn't attack them, and I wasn't aware of the Silph Scope at the time. x3

Default Re: Stupid things you thought/did with Pokemon as a kid.

Whenever I was stuck in a cave, I would give the game to my brother, who would do something to, then he told me to take it outside in the bright sun, and I would be able to see in the cave. I would take it outside, and I could magically see in the cave. I found out about a year later, he was using Flash... xD

I battled a friend using my blastoise against his, and all we did was hydro pump each other over and over again because our attacks were literally hydro pump, surf, water gun, and bubblebeam. Most awesome coin toss ever. XD

I had always thought Psychic type Pokemon attacks were super effective against Grass types.

The very first stupid thing I ever did was when my brother gave me his Silver game and was all like 'take good care of it' because he was going to college.

He had a freaking Lugia, and a Mewtwo. And for some reason, my four-year-old mind thought that 'New Game' meant 'Keep Going' or something. xD Baibailegendaries.

LOL I remember when one of my Pokemon would be poisoned, and the screen would keep flashing and I was like ':o'. I asked my older brother (who was younger than the one who gave me Pokemon Silver, since I have two older brothers) what was going on, and he said that one of my Pokemon were poisoned. I thought he said that there was a poison Pokemon around, and I was like "WHERE? I WANNA CATCH IT!". He never bothered correcting me, but I figured it out soon enough.

I used to think Ditto was a poison type. xD

Ooh I thought of another one. The first time I played Ruby and one of my Pokemon got Poisoned I thought the game was glitched and reset it. xD Because the Poison makes the whole screen shake slightly when you move and that had never happened before in previous games.

I probably did that about 3 times until I reset once and it didn't help because I'd saved while my Pokemon was Poisoned... I finally figured it out xD

When I first played Yellow, and when Pikachu first had low health, I FREAKED OUT! I was like, "what is that ringing sound?!" My mom actually called Nintendo and asked them what it was. She felt really dumb.. Calling Nintendo to ask a question for her 4 year old son...

In Ruby, I thought that Absol was a legendary and because it kept escaping my Pokeballs I used my Master Ball. D:

I also believed random stuff that my friend told me, like that you could combine Thunder and Psychic to make a mega attack thing, and that if I kept using Splash, Magikarp would use a really powerful attack.

Also, one time when I traded with them, I let them trade without me looking and they stole my level 97 Raichu, Queenie. I got her back, but she's been cloned so many times I don't know if it's the original. All of my friends used to have one. Dx

Oh yeah, and I traded my level 86 Swampert for a second Rayquaza.

I was such a gullible kid. ;o;

Default Re: Stupid things you thought/did with Pokemon as a kid.

I was playing Pokemon Gold and I actually got a Shiny Cyndaquil, I tell people this, but I say I always went a kept it and it became Shiny Typhlosion! The thing is, That last part never happened. It was when my Bro got Silver and I got Gold, and he picked Totodile. Well, we decided to get up ahnd go into the grass at the same time, and we did. and He came into battle first and his Totodile wasn't shiny, So no sparkles. I went into battle and my Cyndaquil came out Sparkly and Me nor him knew what it was, so I turned off my Game as Fast as I could becuase I thought it was going to mess up my whole game. and I never found another Shiny on Gold again. O.o So the truth has come out!
Also, about a month later, we came across a site that said, Sparkles meant SHINY and a Shiny was worth ALOT! Even more so a Starter and he'd trade ANYTHING for a Shiny. And I was then like, "Oh my God. I released a SHINY! I'm a DUMMY! (Remember, I was only 3 at the time ;P)" and my bro started laughing ;P
Note to self: Sparkles are GOOD.

I used to think Ghost-types were weak against Psychic. Which was true in Red.
