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
Something similar happened to me.

When I got my Sapphire, I thought my game glitched and that my Marshtomp was permanently poisoned because Antidotes weren't working, so I restarted my game.

Later I discovered it was Pokerus. -_-

Note to Nintendo: Why couldn't you of made them look different on the status screen.

I used to spend HOURS exploring the underwater in Pokémon Ruby, because I used to think that I'd eventually end up in a secret place like Faraway Island. xD Also, I used to think Groudon, Kyogre, and Deoxys were pronounced as “Ground-doh”, “Kye-or-gee”, and “Dek-so-es”. xDDD

When i was younger and i wanted to get somewhere for example to the elite four and all the wild Pokemon kept getting in my way, i thought that if i kill them all it will be less likely for more to appear.
I still think this sometimes but i don't actually beleive in it anymore.

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.
Before I realized the truth about Shinies, I found a grand total of three Shiny Zubats and killed them all because I thought it was a glitch in the game. Kicked myself for ages after that incident. XD Oh, also, that staring hard at the Pokéball while it shook made a difference in the capture rate.

...Also, I too got scared the first time my Pokémon got poisoned. XD Curse you FireRed for looking so glitchy!

I was probly 4 when I first got Yellow, and right when I got it, I didn't know what to do. I spent hours walking around, and never tried going in the grass. Eventually, my dad got me the strategy guide, but then he remembered I couldn't understand the bigger words, so he had to help me play through it XD So thanks to Pokemon, I can read! haha

I thought:
- Gyarados evolved into Lapras
- Cloyster evolved into Gastly
- Slowbro evolved into Slowking
I also wasted the very first Master Ball I got on a Rattata...

Lol, uhm, well I got my first pokemon game at 4, it was blue.
When I was little me and my friends used to play like we were pokemon, or we'd have fake battles and stuff and run around pretending we were pokemon trainers.
Uhm, I used to not know how to switch pokemon and make a new one come out first, so i'd have a maxed out leader pokemon and a bunch of suckish ones....
I thought that mew and mewtwo's baby.
I thought misty and ash we're gonna get married, but now that I think of it I don't remember a single episode where Misty even showed interest in Ash or any other boy... Hmm... Lesbian?
Anyway, uhm....
I used to think lugia was real and I would "hear" his song (from the movie) and think it was somewhere out there...
I used to draw fake pokemon and want to send them to nintendo to get them made or somthing...
I used to pretend my animals were pokemon. Dog=growlithe, cat=persian, Horse=ponyta, fish=magikarp, etc.
I used to think James was a he-she or somthing...
^^
That's all I can think of at the moment.

We did that when we were in 5th grade (or 6th grade). My poke-bros and I got onto the school basketball court during recess, pretend it was a Pokemon arena and just battle, 2 trainers and everyone else was a Pokemon. Just remembering this makes me crack up.

^ I just learned that it wasn't today ;w;

Anyways, not so much to the arrogance of my youth, but I've gotten a total of 12 uncatchable shinies.

1) Rattata outside of New Bark Town on my way to Mr. Pokémon.
2) SAME FILE! Caterpie outside of Cherrygrove on the way to Mr. Pokémon.
3) Shiny Pidgey going to see Mr. Pokémon on my Silver when I first got that.
4) When I first bought Crystal and was on my way to Mr. Pokémon yet again, shiny Hoppip.
5) The Poochyena attacking Birch when I first got Ruby was shiny.
6) Shiny Wurmple on my Ruby walking to battle May for the first time.
7) Zigzagoon attacking Birch was shiny when I reset my Emerald to start over.
8) Pidgey on my way to get Oak's Parcel in Fire Red
9) Wally found a shiny Ralts when I finally got Sapphire. (FFFFFFUUU)
10) Starly attacking me was shiny in Pearl
11) Shiny Bidoof not 5 minutes later when I was going to see Rowan
12) On my way to see Mom and all that junk, shiny Starly


Basically, this game hates me. A lot. I've found a lot of shinies that I actually could catch, but this is absolutely ridiculous...

Oh and when I was younger I thought Pikachu evolved at level-50 so my Pikachu on Yellow was like level 44 by Misty
