You were young and Pokémon was fresh on the scene... but we all made mistakes when we were younger, and our Pokémon games weren't exempt!
I can safely say that even as a child under the age of 10 i never wasted a master ball on a useless pokemon or let a legendary faint without saving before. but i had older brothers so that could be my reason
Yeah, I was the same way. Always saving and being extra careful with stuff on Pokemon back when I was around 10. Then again, I had an older brother as well... So, maybe that is a thing, lol.
I am an older brother, and I made many mistakes. Lol You must pass on the knowledge to the next generation. ;)
I really wish one day we will get an actual big gorgeous WiiU Pokemon adventure.
My biggest mistakes were using cool instead of strong Pokemon, poorly training them, and using bad tactics. That's kids for ya. Later I learned how to play competitively and scoffed at my boxes of old crap Pokemon. I wish we could get a Pokemon Stadium 3...or even Stadium 1 & 2 Virtual Console releases...
sorry but the first one is a joke, almost everone picked Charmander and the first 2 gyms were rock and water, bulbasaur type is better for the first 3 gyms.
i picked squirtle first, most of my early pokemon knowledge was from watching the anime or gaming magazines, never used gamefaqs until i actually completed the games. loved squirtle because of the squirtle gang from the anime. after a few hours in i noticed that catching starter pokemons was impossible so i started again and kept reseting game to trade starter pokemons. pokemon wasnt that hard, only hard part was safari park or team rocket building(?) where you went on them sliding pads.
Unless playing yellow ;)
It's a long way to be a Poké Master.
I only did the first one. i started with charmander on the original and my first 2 gym leaders type trumped me hard, but i caught a pikachu early in the viridian forest for misty. i didn't even know he was in there at the time. i found it by mistake, and i somehow beat brock with a butterfree with psychic and a nidorino. i'll never forget that first gym battle.
Trying to use strength to move the truck at S.S Anne to find Mew. Oh gawd.
My first was Charmander, and used that one 80% of the time. Did the same thing with Ruby, picked that fire bird and pretty much just used that one pokemon throughout the entire game. Sure I caught a lot of pokemon, just used like 3 of them to do it though.
my first playthrough i pretty much tried to copy ash selection. had to keep reseting game and trading the starter pokemon. i also found the glitch to get pokemon from safari park to appear in cinnibar island. i searched the internet and no one seems to ever mention this glitch. not sure exactly my steps but i had to catch missingno and completed the game a few times, then everytime i use fly to cinnibar island and surf on the east side, pokemon from the last island would appear, this helped me catch the pokemon i struggled catching in safari park. my biggest mistake was using rare candy to 99 every pokemon though.
nope. Sorrybut these mistakes are easy to avoid VERY EASY
Me I always picked Charmander and my bro picked Squirtle, Bulbasaur was the one you just got to help fill out your Pokedex. I never once had to use a Masterball on MewTwo, he was the easiest legendary Pokemon to catch. In one of my files, I even caught him with a Pokeball. Articuno was the hardest, Moltres the second hardest and Zapdos the easiest. I got him with the greatball. The worse mistake I ever made playing Pokemon Blue, was taking it out on the road. I always wanted to take it with me in the car, but whenever the car would have the slightest bump the file would then become corrupted. That was the biggest mistake on Pokemon, you had to take really care of it or you'd lose your file from the smallest of things. You couldn't leave it in the car or the heat would corrupt the file. So after you find out the only way to keep from losing your file, is to stay home, you never wanted to leave. You just wanted to keep playing. To think that was twenty plus years ago, now if you were to ask me to name everyone, I'd not be able to tell you the names, but I do remember when there was talk about a sequel, there would be a character call Pikablue. Good times, good times.
Capturing missing No......... I said goodbye to the cartridge because of that Pokemon.
