The first time trying to use my Dragalge in poke-amie. I mean how do you even pet that thing? You can hardly tell its expression and it barely has a body.

I find it quite awkward how when a Pokemon uses Self-Destruct it inflicts damage on your/the opposing Pokemon before the Pokemon faints.

It's quite comical fighting an Electrode with that smug smile on its face. It does the self-destruct animation, but goes back to that normal smiling face while it inflicts damage on my Pokemon, and then five seconds later all of the sudden it's like "Oh crap! I self-destructed myself didn't I?", and does the fainting animation. xD

Golurk's battle animation for Fly. Seriously, the big lug hops into the air and then belly-flops onto the opponent. The first time I saw it, I cracked up laughing. But it made me love my Titan even more.

I had a silly moment for myself recently. I saw a Cascoon (first time seeing it) and thought "Oh God a snake" because of the close up it had. Then I realized it was a Cascoon and I wanted to hit myself for thinking it was a snake.

The name of the Holo Caster... I can't help it but everytime I see it somewhere, I think of the word Holocaust, especially because the Holo Caster was made by someone who almost caused a Holocaust himself.....

Talonflame used Me First! Talonflame Used Self-Destruct! *boom*

The wild Graveler used Self-Destruct! *boom*

. . . .
Not to be outdone, on Victory Road it happened again . . . with Explosion.

Maybe it's time I took it out of Talonflame's moveset....

Another slightly awkward moment is the Fairy Tale Girl trainer who greets you with "Want to see the scary side of the Fairy type?" -- then sends out an Aromatisse.

I was in a Friend Safari and a Cascoon managed to scare the hell out of me with its dramatic closeup and giant red eyes. Plus the fact that it doesn't have the silk-string-whatever things coming out of its body anymore like it did back in gen 3, and I don't know if it's a new design or what, but I wasn't used to seeing it. I almost dropped my DS in shock because of how /big/ the closeup of it made.

Even worse, this happened twice in a row. -_-

That guy in the photo cafe at Lumiose City.

What do you like the most?
Long
Short
-What?

-Im gonna honestly say that it wasn't a camera focus I was thinking on.

Another one.

A guy challenged me to an online battle. I saw his team. He was very early in is game. He probably saw mine(I had level 50+). The battle started. I selected a move. I waited and waited. He didn't do anything. Akward silence. After 5 minutes, with him doing nothing, he cancelled the battle. What the?

A guy in a South Boulevard building said 'Don't sneak up on me! I might fall in love with you!'. I was playing as a dude.

And at Restraunt Le Nah, a guy's saying 'Just two guys having food. Nothing wrong!' Or something.

It's yaoi o' clock!
...Not to mention the fact that I was in a cafe somewhere in Luminose city and there was some random waiter guy who said that he wanted to work with a handsome manager.

I can't forget what I was doing at the time but one of my acquaintances challenged me to a battle. I'm pretty unprepared (I haven't built a team yet and two of my pokemon were for HMs) but I figured, what the heck?
I went ahead and fought him. His team is like, 80% legendaries with a couple of the tougher pokemon to boot. Move after move, he keeps making mistakes and I keep creaming him. Poor guy...
It was shocking when I was at it, but the playback was hilarious. It's my one saved video. It holds a special place in my heart.

Mareep horde battle, accidentally ending them all and not even realizing one was shiny until it fainted. I kick myself every time I remember it. :c

Well, since I'm playing as a girl, Shauna and the fireworks was a liiiittle...awkward. >.>

One of those intimate, non-gay moments...happens to all of us...
So if you play as a girl what does she say?? "I've never seen fireworks with a girl alone before ??" I always thought that tierno replaced shauna in all of those scenes !
