Much like other people, I used to think poison was a glitch. Whenever my game shook I was like 'OH NOES! I'LL LOSE MY DATA!' Then I finally figured out that my Marchtomp was poisoned. xD

Wasn't exactly just me, but my brother saw a shiny Zubat. (Actually, as I remember it, it was a solid gold Zubat, but I know it must have been shiny.) We were like 'Eh, Zubat, run from it.' Now I regret it.

Oh, and I believed the whole 'Hold Down A+B after throwing a pokeball, and it makes it easier to catch the Pokemon'. I made whole whole family hurt their thumbs trying to press down the buttons as hard as they could. xD

I also thought that part of the storyline in Ruby was to actually defeat Groudon. So I never had a chance to catch it. ]:

Oh and now the story of the wandering Sapphire game. :3

It was christmas day, and me and my brother had had Ruby & Sapphire for six months. My brother took his Sapphire cartridge out of his gameboy, and put it down outside our upstairs bathroom. Five minutes later, it actually had disappeared, and we couldn't find it anywhere. Two or three years later, my dad moves the washing machine, and finds my brothers missing Sapphire game. It's still a mystery, and a bit stupid. x3

I used to also there was a Pokemon invasion and everyone was going to die with my cousins. xD

My friend E-man was tricked by one of my other friends into trading his Groudon for a Blaziken. If that wasnt already bad enough, the Blaziken's only moves were Scratch, Growl, Focus Energy, and Sand attack.

Also, one time, I went to Best Buy looking for ROMs and Emulators.

A solid gold Zubat??? WOAH! That's crazy! Because Shiny Zubat is like a dark brown color. I caught one. Idk what happened that made you see gold one

Played Pokemon. Oh, something totally abnormal. Um. Imagined what it would be like to eat a Pokemon. That small little inconsistency in the story has always bugged me, ever since I was little.

Here's some of the actual stupid things in did IN the game.

I believed the A+B Button thing up and till I was 13.

I have encountered about 12 Shinies. Only caught 3. Because I thought they where Glitches.

I got given a Shiny Charmander, but thought my game had been hacked. So I quickly reset it.

I use to think Fighting was Super Effective on Ground.

I thought the B button rumor thing was real.

I've come a long way...

I thought spamming certain buttons would help you catch legendaries.
I thought Slowbro evolved into Slowking for the longest time.
I didn't care for what was physical and what was special, up until Gen IV.
I thought Shedinja and Zangoose were caught in a secret area that was found outside of Fiery Cave [ I was playing Sapphire]
I thought Rayquazza was an alt of Shelgon.

I think it was just the regualr shiny, but from the angle I was standing at it looked gold, and thats how I remembered it. It was on my brother's DS, and we were in the kitchen (always remember this. xD). And I think I was standing at an odd angle to view his gameboy. I do remember seeing the sparkles though. I assume it was a regular shiny Zubat, but the angle I was standing at made it seem a different colour.

That makes sense. If I had a dime for every time I saw the screen at a weird angle and thought I caught a shiny, I would be rich. That has always been my pet peeve

Okay let's see...

When I was little I thought that Ash, Misty, and Brock we're going to come in my room one night and take me to the Pokemon world...

I had a big crush on Gary so I slept on the floor in case he wanted to sleep in my bed XD Mommy got mad.

I went over to the Pokemon Leauge in Yellow and realized I couldn't get in FOUR. YEARS. LATER!

And finally, I roamed the first patch of grass, my heart set on finding Mewtwo.

I kind of skipped from Red/Blue/Yellow to Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. Transferred over my Mewtwo and came into a fight against a Mightyena. Used Psychic. Failed miserably as I found out for the first time that Dark types are immune to psychic type moves >.>

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

I used to put a piece of paper over the Pokemon's Pokedex image in the back of the Strategy Guides and trace the Pokemon, then color them in and cut them out and have a Pokemon battle wit them. .-. I would also do Pokemon Contests, but those are way less fun. -u-

I'd also leave my house, nearly every morning around 3 A.M., with a backpack--full of Electronic Pokedex's, Pokemon cards, My DS and Pokemon games, etc--and a note stuck on the refrigerator:

"Bye, Daddy,

I'm going on an adventure - I'll come back when I'm a Pokemon Master.

♥ Jennifer.

PS: I want spaghetti for dinner."
