RIP little Plop
my friends autistic brother used to steal peoples pokemon games all the time, stole one from some kid named landon, was full of rares and legendaries.
I ended up helping myself to a few of them so they wouldn't go to waste.
had another persons sapphire and just left it out on the law in the rain
and one day he managed to get a hold of my game...I looked down and it was gone from the table next to me. I finally tracked him down and got my game back and to my confusion and surprise....every pokemon I had now knew brick break.
thats all he did, he stole my game and taught brick break to everything
>be me, 8 years old
>brings pokewalker into school because I was leveling up my ariados
>clips pokewalker on pocket
>break time, check on ariados, battle a bit, find items
>teacher notices me
>takes pokewalker away, get it back at the end of the day
>I cry because my favorite pokemon (at the time) had got taken away by some fat lady
>comes back to get it at end of the day
Basically, some teacher in my school had a copy of HG/SS, took my pokewalker with a lvl 50 Ariados on it, and transferred it to herself.
>play with big bro pokemon blue together cos no money for two gameboys
>get first own pokemon game and gameboy, pokemon gold
>feels so good
>honestly that was the best time of my life
>brother has no more his gameboy
>my gameboy has a sound problem
>big brother tries to fix
>everything is fucking broken
>no more gameboy
>no more pokemon
I lived a gloomy life for a year and a half, I got both Pokemon Ruby and GBA at the same time when they came out.
>be me, like to get both versions of the main games
>around the time I got BW
>I still play with my older games sometimes to transfer stuff to the newer ones
>my nephew (about 6 or so) and a friend of his come over
> I know my bastard of a nephew has stolen all my games before because his GTA/CoD isn't good enough for him
>hide them up on a shelf in a little drawer out of view so he doesn't get it; lock room
>have to leave somewhere; tell his mom and my mom not to let him into my room
>ok anon, I'll watch him
>come back some hour or two later
>nephew and his friend have gone home
>look in my room; everything appears to be ok
>feeling suspicious, I check to see if my games are there
>they fucking aren't
>call up his mom to ask about my games
>asks why should I care about games I don't play with all the time and just let him keep them
>bitch her out saying that isn't the point and that I bought those games with my hard earned money and for me, not for him and he shouldn't be stealing like that or take anything without asking
>she asks my nephew about it; I find out him and his friend somehow busted into my room and found em' (stupid bitch didn't watch her own kid in other words)
>both took their fair share of games
>she says she'll try to get them all back
>sometime later I go over to his house for my games
>I check them all; nothing changed
>realize my HeartGold is missing
>ask why its gone
>his mom tells me that his friend's brothers found the game and they won't admit to taking it nor give it back at all
>she doesn't go over there to demand it back nor give me the money I lost
>I can't go get them back because I didn't know how to drive yet nor know where they were
>all my HeartGold mons lost, even a few shinies I got such as Eevee and Murkrow
>Had to go buy a new one
To this day I'm still pissed off about it, and I make sure to steal my nephew's games and sell them to make him suffer.
I was seven when Red came out!
found a hitmonchan card in the grass outside of a restaurant, later I trade with some kid for a charmander because I don't know any better. My mom ended up buying me another one, it must have costed fifty buck and i didnt even care i had lost it. I still have it now, and also a holo ditto i didnt trade back to a kid who wanted it back the next day after trading for the duck
Cards always make me sad
>year after release of d/p
>younger brother loves to clear the save file off of games that he's barely played
>we both own pearl
>turns on and deletes my game (he memorized the deletion code), wiping my entire, completed dex without checking who's game it was
>still mad about it to this day
>Flipnote Hatena days, made friends with someone who also liked Pokémon
>Talked about Pokémon at least four times a week for 6 months or something
>Person says they've been trying to level up their recently bred team in BW
>I had a level 100 Victini I had gotten from a trade, so I offer it to them so they can train faster and they can give it back to me once they're done
>weeks go by, hear nothing from this person
>months go by
>It's been 3 years
>Still holding a grudge over that fucking Victini
>Now have a hard time even trusting friends to trade Pokémon that evolve via evolution
I guess I was the dumb one here, but still, I was just trying to be a good friend
Nevermind that you: A - Can't move pokemon from one game to another through the Pokewalker and B - Have to erase all of your Pokewalker data in order get it to work with another game, AND you can always recall a pokemon within the pokewalker by going to the Pokewalker menu and pressing Up+Select+R
You can do it right now and get your dumb spider back, and put it right back in the Pokewalker like nothing happened
Sad sotry ;_;7
>didn't even get into Pokémon until I was 19
>have no friends
>don't take my 3DS out in public because the only times I leave my house are for work and grocery shopping
Never had a sad experience with Pokémon, and I doubt I ever will.
