    For me it's someone reaching the elite 4, releasing all of their pokemon besides a level 5 ;129; & still beat the elite 4.

    I did a full nuzlocke-like playthrough in Red version using just my Starter Pokemon when I was younger. I didn't intend to do it at first, but it was fun and challenging to use just one Pokemon.

    Well when I was playing VC Red, I found it hilarious that I used a team of Lv 50s in the Champion battle against Blue, whose Pokémon are around 10-15 levels higher. It was still a nice achievement but given how broken the battle mechanics were and the moves of Blue's Pokémon weren't too going either, it might've been that it was something that can still be achieved by a number of people.

    In my first Crystal playthrough, I managed to catch Raikou at full health using just one Fast Ball, despite it being effective only when used on Grimer, Tangela, and Magnemite due to a giltch. I also remember challenging the Elite Four with a team of Typhlosion, Starmie, Suicune, Growlithe, Red Gyarados and very weak Wooper and still defeating them, as well as Champion Lance.

    Catching Entei with a Pokeball. Surprised the heck out of me. XD

    Back when I played Crystal on GB, I once only used my Feraligatr the whole game, got it to level 100, then did the PC duplicate/clone trick 5 times to have a full party. I then proceeded to beat Red over and over and over out of built up revenge and spite from never forming a balanced or strong enough party as a kid... good times ._.

    That a fish actually played a Gen I game. It managed to even pick a Starter Pokemon which was Charmander.

    I did something similar in Silver version, but with Lugia instead. I didn't pay much attention to catch rates back then, but now I can see how miraculous that was.

    Congrats! :) That had to be one heck of a catch.

    My Weedle’s Poison Sting missed 14 times in a row when battling Brock.

    Did something similar in Crystal once with Raikou. Found it randomly en route to Olivine, chucked a Great Ball for the lulz. Ended up catching it in said Great Ball.

    That's not even the craziest thing I've done in these games, though. In the VC version of Crystal, I went up against Whitney, and Miltank destroyed my Quilava, Pidgeotto, and Psyduck- my entire team up to that point. And yet, I did not lose- I still had one Pokémon left. I hadn't delivered Kenya yet. So I sent him out. And Miltank had taken a couple of Mud-Slaps earlier in the fight. I kid you not, every single Stomp missed, allowing Kenya to just whittle it down with repeated Peck attacks, and that's how I beat the Miltank of Death with a level 10 Spearow. Yeah, after that battle, I put Pidgeotto in the PC and moved Kenya's mail to a random Rattata, delivered that instead. After that performance, Kenya friggin' earned himself a spot on the team.
