* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: For months prior to the official release of the game promotional materials referred to the pokémon Marill as "Pikablu" likely due to its mouse-like appearance, the zig-zag tail that resembled Pikachu's lightning bolt tail and... well, [[ShapedLikeItself the fact that it was blue]]. Marill was ''never'' officially referred to by this name at any point, not even during the planning stages. Despite this the misnaming was so prevalent that even Topps used it in the ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_the_First_Movie_Trading_Cards Trading Cards]].

* SerendipityWritesThePlot: The limited space of Game Boy Color cartridges is more than likely the reason that many buildings and dungeons in Kanto have been scaled down or became inaccessible due to various plot reasons in Kanto. For example, Cinnabar Island's volcano erupted and destroyed almost everything, Fuchsia City & Cerulean City's shared music was replaced with that of Celadon City and Viridian City, respectively, and most of Silph Co. isn't open to the public. ''[[VideoGameRemake HeartGold and SoulSilver]]'' restores most of the areas and their music, though Cinnabar Island is still destroyed and the Fuchsia City Safari Zone has been with replaced with the Pal Park.

** The battle with Red was originally planned to [[OldSaveBonus pull data from]] ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' so that Red would use the Pokemon you completed the original game with. This proved too difficult to implement with the technology available at the time, so the default option of the three previous starters and the plot-relevant Pokemon were used instead.
