Your most 'AARGH!!' moment

I had an AAARGHH! moment today on Ruby. I was in the Hoenn desert, training before Norman as you do. I swear to GOD Sand Veil is the most annoying ability ever there. I was practically screaming at every Sandshrew I saw....

Encountering a shiny weezing on cinnabar island in my leafgreen, false swiping it to 1 HP, hypnotizing it, and proceeding to blow 200 ultra balls on it. I literally ran out of balls. It was ridiculous

I've got another one - finding a foreign pokemon which isn't fake, that's hard because for all we know they could be lying.

I believe it was when I was facing a Fearow(I think) and it spammed double team to the max. And when I had finally gotten it down to yellow it used Roost

This one time I could not capture a Chatot for the life of me. It resulted in me throwing my DS.

I found my first-ever random shiny. In the Battle Frontier.

AARGH!!

I remember once when I was battling a shiny Graveler and it KO'd itself with Explosion. That doesn't really matter now, though, since I have a shiny Geodude anyway from HeartGold.

Grinding on Weedle and Caterpie (and the occasional Pikachu) in Viridian Forest. That tops EVERYTHING you guys can say simply because of how repetitive and not all that helpful it truly is.

Defeating a legendary unintentionally when trying to lower it's health for a catch

Losing to Red ( Though I expected that to happen. I beat himon my 3rd try )

Running after the roaming legends in Soul Silver, finding them, get the hp down and find them 80 more times trying to catch them, wish I had a pokemon with arena trap or something.

Agree on the amount of zubat, really hate those caves -.-

Replace Shiny Weezing with Shiny Metang, replace LeafGreen with White, and replace Cinnibar with Giant Chasm, and you have my AARRRG moment.

My AAARRRGGHH moment: Stumbling upon a Lvl 95 Togekiss that I trained up a few years ago in my box. "Awesome!"

You can get Wobbuffet at night on the Peak of the Safari Zone. Thought it might help.


I was playing Emerald. I was floating along the sea, happy as ever, when I encountered a Pelipper. At first, it looked normal enough. Them I noticed that instead of blue, it was green. That was the first shiny I ever found without my brother's hacks. I carefully lowered its health with my Gyarados, then hypnotised it with Jigglypuff. I opened my bag and skipped to the Pokeballs section. Guess what? I had no Pokeballs. I was only six, so I had no idea what to do. I wanted to make a Pokeball magically appear in my hand with my brother's hacks, but I wanted it fair and square. After about five tantrums, I made the difficult decision to flee. "Ill catch one someday," I told myself. But I never did. I'm still upset about that even now.
