I have seen a lot of threads going on about how lucky they are so I thought what about sharing your unlucky experiances.Mine are
catching my first shiny (lotad).I then forgot to save and turned it off.
getting pokerus and not knowing it and then I lost it.
spending days trying to catch Rayquaza and then my brother caught it with a poke ball on his first go.

As you can see I am rather unlucky.

I remember the batteries falling out of my GBA when I caught a shiny Chimecho once. I was so close. That was with my friend's GBA, which lacks a batery cover, unfortunately.

One should never try to catch rare Pokémon in Safari Zone when batteries are low. I spent almost an hour there. Suddenly my GBA decided to turn off. I lost Pikachu, Girafarig (it was so hard to catch), Heracross, Phanpy, Natu and Psyduck. Yay.

Heracross is actually available in all 5 GBA 3rd gen pokémon games.

Anyway, in battle factory, losing all 3 of my pokémon to a single, cheap, focus banding Machoke. Note my team had a Kadabra and Masquarein on it.

Unlucky all around

Silver- Caught shiny Nidorina and deleted game.
FireRed- Caught shiny Golbat and my [SPOIL]Action Replay[/SPOIL] deleted my game, along with 6 level 100 pkmn and a Jirachu, not to mention 10 colloseum pkmn.
Gold- Raised my Lapras's level by 30 and forgot to save. ;-;
Sapphire- Encountered shiny Regice and failed to catch despite using 10 great balls, 5 pokeballs, and 30 ultra balls.

This is really bad but when I caught Latias for my brother, we were celebrating, his arm hits the Gameboy and it freezes. The look on our faces was a Priceless Kodak moment. In my Ruby I also was at the 35th Trainer in the Battle Tower and had just defeated a Regice with my last Pokemon, Raichu. The Trainer had one Pokemon left, sends out a Registeel, and it knows Earthquake. I wanted to knock down the tower at that moment. I may have more but can't think of them now.

my most unlucky moment was when a firend of mine used my master ball on rayquazza and saved!

Back I guess??
my most unlucky moment didn´t happened with me, I was taking a shower and my cousing was training my sceptile in sapphire, the he saw a shining wailmer, then he looked in my party for the attack that has the lowest base stat, (sceptile´s absorb...) then wailmer fainted.... .
another one happened 4 times with my silver, linking pokéstadium2 and then the game was erased, ahh, I got a gligar with earthquake (that time gligar didn´t learn earthquake).
ah, there is more one! in emerald when I beat the E4 and the TV showed that thing of the lati@s choose red instead of blue.............. the worst thing that I made ever...

My unluckiness is getting a latios with an impish nature. It does have flawless speed though. In my Leaf Green, I recently got a relaxed suicune with what looks like zero DVs in defense, speed, special attack and special defense while having a poor attack DV and a so-so HP DV. I render it only useful for possible trading purposes now.
