* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: While the games were remade for the [=GameBoy=] Advance, the original cartridges were becoming more and more difficult to obtain. Then when the GBA, the last device capable of playing original [=GameBoy=] games, was discontinued, it became even more difficult to play the originals. Eventually [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/KeepCirculatingTheTapes/Rescued Rescued]] when the originals were added to the Nintendo Virtual Console.

** The localization team considered [[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore beefing up]] the {{Mons}}, on the grounds that American audiences might not take well to "cute monsters".

** Some old cheat lists claim that your {{Mons}} will receive a "revenge boost" to their Attack when their other stats are decreased. This one is actually partly true; while nobody ''intentionally'' programmed that feature into the game, [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_glitches_in_Generation_I#Stat_modification_errors one of the game's myriad bugs]] causes badge boosts to be reapplied every time any of their stats gets modified. That said, any move that modifies a stat will force a proper recalculation of that stat, wiping away these glitch boosts. It's not revenge, it's just a glitch.

** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Red_and_Green_beta#Localization-specific_information Many Pokémon had different names planned for them in the English translation]]. These changes range from minor (i.e. Pidgey was going to be Pidge), slightly different versions of their original names (i.e. Kakuna was Kokoon, a corruption of its Japanese name Cocoon), completely different names (i.e. Tentacruel was Man O War), or direct translations of their original Japanese (i.e. Chansey was going to be Lucky).

** There were originally going to be 190 Pokémon, but they were cut for space. According to [[TheWikiRule Bulbapedia]], all 39 of the cut Pokémon would later end up in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''. This explains the lack of {{Suspiciously Similar Substitute}}s in Generation II, as many of them were made alongside the originals. Strangely, Ho-oh was not part of the original planned roster of 190 Pokémon, despite appearing in the first episode of the anime.

** TheMissingNo ([[TropeNamer or Missing Number]]) has had a number of rumors around it, some said catching it would damage your cartridge others say that it would erase your data.
