Default The facepalm worthy things you've done in Pokemon

What are some of the dumbest things you've done in any Pokemon game?

In Soul Silver, it was late at night, I was playing for 3 hours straight, and I mistook healing my Pokemon at a Pokemon Center as saving before turning the game off. Without saving.

In Black, I accidentally sold a moonstone while wondering if I could use it to evolve Eevee into an Umbreon (this was before I knew how to evolve it).

I sent out a Pangoro against the Fairy Type gym leader's Sylveon, completely forgetting the Fairy type's strengths and weaknesses.

Talkling the entire game in Pok?mon yellow using a measly pikachu when I was a kid.
I was at lvl 99 when I beat Blue. The rest of my team were in the measly 30s
The huge amount of revives, full restores, and game overs.
BUT! I've done it LOL

A few times in black and hgss, I started a new game forgetting you have to erase the old file before starting a new one if you want to save it. I although I do think that is still a little unnecessary to have to make it that way.

I think it is, considering i got more than a hundred gameovers, when it could have been prevented if I train my other pokemon and if I knew things like resistance and weaknesses.

Took over a week to breed a perfect IVed Sneasel to remember that it can only learn ice punch (the best ice move it can learn that is physical) through breeding.

When Leafeon was announced, I automatically assumed the leaf stone would give me the evolution. I was wondering why it wouldn't evolve for the longest time, thought it might have to be a certain level/time etc. I finally gave up and looked the answer up online and realized I needed to level up near that damn Moss Stone. (Didn't like spoiling new game details in those days).

Taught me a valuable lesson, never waste your time when the answer is online!

Tried beating a Gold Cart with a Dead internal battery on the charger without saving, got four badges in and accidently turned it off after saving.

Met Latias on a route in sapphire for the first time. Unaware that you could track it after seeing it, I restarted when it fled, thinking it would appear again in the same patch of grass. It didn't. I spent probably 5-10 hours looking in that same patch of grass before looking up on the internet how it works. I facepalmed so hard that I fainted and woke upp 9000 years later as a robot on the planet Qwurck. The end.

Retried the Gen 1 Pokemon league a bunch of times before realizing you could save in between matches

I did it intentionally, but I was 10, so it's understandable... kinda. It's basically why I save all the time now though.

On a Raticate.

In Pokemon X while fighting the Snorlax that was blocking the bridge I accidentally hit 'run' and it got away.

Don't worry, he'll show up again eventually. I also screwed up my Snorlax encounter and he showed up back at the bridge a week later.

I did something similar, although my other 5 Pokemon were in the teen levels, and I never beat the champion like that. Although I did something similar with another Pokemon game, but instead of just pikachu, I used only blastoise. It is much easier with Blastoise.

Maybe not a facepalm thing?

Except for FireRed and LeafGreen, I've had every Pokemon game since Ruby, but Pangoro was the very first Pokemon I've ever leveled to 100.

From what I can remember, I've fallen asleep several times with my DS/3DS still on and woke up to a dead system.
