** 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.

** There's a truck sprite that only appears once in the game. The only way to see it is to go way out of your way to avoid triggering a certain plot event that closes off the area and returning when you can travel on water. People believed that it had to have been put there for a reason, leading to hundreds of rumors about this thing. As it turns out, it's just a truck.

** Cutting Pokémon for space is also why Mewtwo is in the Pokedex before Mew; there originally wasn't enough space until the debug tools were removed late into production. Had there been enough room it is conceivable that Mew would have been placed before Mewtwo in the Pokédex.

** There once was a [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/7/70/Kensugiart3.png female protagonist]]. She was excluded presumably due to a lack of space for her data and reused for ''[=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=]'' as "[[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Leaf_%28game%29 Leaf]]". Her design was used for the character Green (known as Blue in Japan) in Manga/PokemonAdventures.
