    Should have used town map instead.

    Can't let you catch that mewtwo.

  3. Deep Thought on April 27th, 2012 9:02 am

    This… this is why we can't have nice things.

    You fill them to the brim with useless Pokemon and then you complain when you can't get your rares.

  4. RustyDoomSpork on April 27th, 2012 9:14 am

    this is when you restart the game….

    you did save the game recently didn't you?

  5. HyperMetalix on April 27th, 2012 9:23 am

    This is why you always save your game before starting the battle!

  6. Hareoic on April 27th, 2012 9:27 am

    People actually had full storage boxes back then? What did you stuff them with, player? Pokemon-shaped bran muffins and waffles?

    You have no-one to blame but yourself. And maybe a case of the munchies.

    He really needs to..
    drop the ball then.

    The player finally laments not checking his PC before leaving.

    If he's like ash then we could only assume that his storage container has pretty much nothing but Tauros….

    *Turns off Game Boy*

    *Turns it back on*'

    *Loads save right before facing Mewtwo, goes back to PC and makes some room*

    And that is how it's done.

    (Also, is that really how Gengar looked back then? It's a little disturbing…)

  13. Nick Soapdish on April 27th, 2012 10:37 am

    Can't let you use that, FULL BOX

  14. P.Nut on April 27th, 2012 10:39 am

    I can't let you do that, full box.

    Remember kids make sure to save before attempting to capture each legendary.

    ITT: Kids that never experienced this horror first-hand. Back in my day, we had to switch our boxes ourselves…and we were grateful. If we left to catch me all with a full box, we were to blame. We had none of this Bill callin’ ya to tell ya your box is getting full, and we certainly didn’t have no auto-switchin’ boxes. Kids these days…

  19. Vosur on April 27th, 2012 11:41 am

    If you didn't save recently, here's the sound for you: rel="nofollow">

    Well, Shawn already used the joke, but…

    Feel free to reply if you have any good First Gen Problems.

    Why are you bringing back the horrible parts of our childhood, Shawn?

  23. smashter on April 27th, 2012 12:19 pm

    Looks like someone just got…

    Next step is an online Pokemon MMO.

  25. Suzuki on April 27th, 2012 2:49 pm

    i dont have this problem, i have shadow pokemon…
    deal with it

  26. Punch SideIron on April 27th, 2012 3:10 pm

    "YAAAAY, I defeated Mewtwo, the final boss! I'm glad my Pokemon were strong enough to kill him! That… WAS what I was supposed to do, right?"
    -Me, age 8, who saved afterward to make sure the victory was solidified

  27. TopRattata on April 27th, 2012 3:53 pm

    Joey had to use a masterball on me.

  28. HughbertEsq on April 27th, 2012 4:48 pm

    Sooooo, if the pokemon box is full, does that mean you caught them all?
    Or were they wrong?

    Did they lie to you from the very start?
    Set you off on a quest they knew you would never complete
    And if every obstacle they so gently nudged in your direction was surmounted by your own will
    They knew
    That the realization of your imminent failure
    Your powerlessness in the face of mere logic
    Would be enough to destroy you
    Enough… even…..

    To subtract you from the equation Oak + Ash= -Mom!
    Subtract the Ash, Add the Mom
    with Oak + Mom= -Ash, who'll lose?!
    Well, you, this was Oaks ploy from the very beginning, but then again its your fault that YOU had to be born and ruin Oaks fun.
    Why didn't you just not learn how to breathe when you emerged?
    It would've been easier for all of us
    Sheesh, Selfish wallad…..

  29. AuraGuyChris on April 27th, 2012 5:40 pm

    Clearly, Mewtwo's gotten sick of the ol' Master Ball trick.

    So it just teleported tons of exclusive Pokemon to fill the boxes. Survival of the fittest, I'd say.

  30. SRIG on April 27th, 2012 8:27 pm

    I can't remember if this ever happened to me…

  31. Paulrus-Keaton? on April 27th, 2012 9:41 pm

    Suddenly, the faint but recognizable sound of a Gameboy Color making a sizable dent in the drywall.

  32. Jimmy on April 27th, 2012 10:10 pm

    …AAAAAAAAAAND people want an auto-save option. Ha ha ha…no.

  33. Master_Chief177 on April 28th, 2012 6:07 pm

    [insert hilarious pun referencing Gary mother f***** Oak here]

  34. lolchainswords on May 1st, 2012 4:32 pm

    my reaction when this fucking happens (my box was full of pidgeys and rattatas) rel="nofollow"> rel="nofollow">

    If you wanna catch Mewtwo, I feel bad for you son.
    You got 99 Boxes, but not a free one.
