** To be fair, Janine's outfit isn't very feminine and is clearly based on the clothes worn by the previous Fuchsia gym leader, who is her ''father''.

** With the introduction of genders, A new volatile status condition, infatuation, was introduced. Caused by the move Attract, if the target is the opposite gender of the user, there is a %50 percent chance that it'll skip a turn and not act.

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Almost all the participants in the Bug Catching Contest are all boys. Except for Picnicker Cindy, who lampshades the fact that she's a girl who likes Bug type Pokémon.

** These same changes also serve to make the other means of travelling between Johto and Kanto (the Magnet Train and the S.S. Aqua, which unlike the teleportation Abra are still fully functional in the remakes) less necessary, since one can travel between regions quickly by flying to the Indigo Plateau and then flying to the desired location in the other region, since the Indigo Plateau is now considered part of both Kanto and Johto and thus serves as a flying source and destination for all other locations in the game.

* BeneficialDisease: The Pokérus is a virus that infects Pokémon in your party, but rather then doing harm to them, it increases stat growth. Once cured, the effect remains for the Pokémon but it won't be able to spread it further, so its a good idea to keep an infected Pokémon in the PC where the virus will remain indefinitely. Encountering the virus for yourself is actually rarer then encountering a Shiny Pokémon, but later generations make it easier to find thanks to online trading.

** As in the original games, the Bug-types Caterpie (''Gold'' exclusive) and Weedle (''Silver'' exclusive) reprise their roles as this here. They're found just north of Cherrygrove City (the 2nd location the player will visit,) and evolve into their 3rd forms at a mere level 10, at which point they're much stronger than anything else early in the game.

** The Mystery Gift has a completely different function from later games.
