Things you used to think about Pokémon in your n00b days

For some weird reason, a few years ago I thought Emerald was a Johto game due to my misunderstanding of this image in a guidebook and to my almost complete lack of knowledge of any main games before Gen IV.
 
That the only weaknesses were the fire, water and grass things. I didn't even pay attention to it when it said super or ineffective. I just clicked A fast.

I thought that you could climb ledges :mad:

Geodude was a Pure Rock type

Geodude evolves into Onix.
 

Yoshi K

Come with me if you want cookies
I didn't think Minccino had an evolution.

I drew a Poké Ball, and colored it red on both top and bottom.

I thought Ditto was a very good pokémon because of the stupid anime episode about him, and I used my master ball on him.

Ditto has no gender ._.

Also, you used your Master Ball? That's embarassing.

Ditto isn't that good, he needs to transform for victory

Amusingly, before the 5th generation, you could have Ditto transform into something like a Pidgey, and catch it with just a mere Poke Ball with very little effort.

Turn it into a Reshiram, congratulations. You just wasted a Master Ball.

Reshiram can't breed, so using a Master Ball on it is understandable, regardless of its catch rate.

Well, considering I had just learned to read when I first played it, lots of stuff. I used to think the gender of a Pokemon affected its stats.

i thought males had higher atk and females had higher def because i ad two rattatas male and female with the same level, now i know it was natures.

i also thought the male sign meant female and vice versa

I was just confused as fuck about them. Even though they were color coded by the time I started playing.

I wish I could show you some pictures, but I don't know how to post pictures.
