When you where new to the wonderful world of video games which of these mistakes did you make. Be honest and you can choose as much as you can. Please no insulting or calling people "noobs" for their mistakes.

Any other common mistakes, please tell me so I can add it in.

I made all the mistakes except the one about Baby Mario and Bowser Jr. I was shocked when I found out Birdo was male although I still count Birdo as a female.

None of these mistakes are known to me as Nintendo mistakes, to be honest.

You mean the Poll?
When I last tested it out, it can't.
However, it can be changed by now.

Edit:
It's possible, look at the screenshot:

Wait... are you sure Birdo isn't female?
According to the Super Mario Bros. 2 handbook, Birdo is transgender. That means that he thinks he is or believes he should be a woman, but is not actually a woman.

Samus looks male and it it is very easy to make a mistake there. I did think at first Link's name was Zelda. But that was the princess. I the last one I think is true not a mistake.

I agree with this entire statement, although I learned to get around with the mistakes.

I originally thought Lucario and Rotom were legendaries. I didn't think Lucario was a legendary after I got it, though.

You have entered the comedy area.
When I was little, I mistaken Bowser Jr. for Baby Bowser. Oh, and right when Gen IV came out, I thought Rotom was a legendary

Another common mistake: When you play a Zelda game for the first time, don't name your file after your real name, especially if you're a girl. In my old file in The Wind Waker, everyone calls Link "Maura." X_x It was the first Zelda I made a file in, so I didn't know that's how it would turn out.

"Birdo is female" is hardly a mistake; Birdo clearly displays a female gender identity. Calling her male because she was born male isn't exactly a very nice thing to do; in fact, it's downright offensive. And

Being transgender means that your gender identity differs from your biological sex; it doesn't mean you are "not actually" the gender you identify with. Oh, and the correct gender pronoun in this case is "she".

Anyway, the Rotom & Lucario thing and Link's name being Zelda. And Samus Aran's name being Metroid; why is that not in the poll?
