* SleeperHit: Nintendo of Japan actually said ItWillNeverCatchOn while releasing Japanese ''Red and Green'' and writing it off as a loss. It didn't top the sales charts, but it kept ''selling steady'' in a market where 80% of sales are made in the first two weeks. Game Freak made a few tweaks, released [[UpdatedRerelease Japanese Blue]] and Nintendo got their cash cow.

** Professor Oak was going to be battled at some point late in the game. He uses a high-level team that's very similar to Blue's final one and includes the fully evolved form of the starter that wasn't picked.
