** The game considers the Pokédex as complete even if the slot 151, which is almost in the middle of the Old Pokédex, doesn't even have the "Seen" entry. The slot is obviously reserved for the event-exclusive Mew, which (in theory) can't be obtained without outside help (the same can be said for Celebi, which is the number 251, but it is much less glaring in Celebi's case, because if its slot doesn't have an entry, the Pokédex simply won't scroll past the slot 250) .

The problem is alleviated if the player uses the "New Pokédex" order, which places Mew and Celebi at the end.


Added DiffLines:

* NoExportForYou: The Japanese version of ''Pokemon Crystal'' had online features (first in the series) that allowed players to trade, battle, and interact over long distance by connecting the game to real life mobile phones. These were removed from non-Asian versions versions due to mobile phones not being as prominent outside of Japan back then. The game also had a special event (also a first) that allowed players to catch Celebi. Since it was tied to the mobile phone feature, it was excluded from western releases, rendering Celebi unobtainable in-game (although it was still distributed in official tournaments and events). Curiously, the Celebi event was excluded from the remakes in every region (with a new one that didn't allow the player to catch Celebi taking its place), despite the online features being brought back.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Your Pokémon will occasionally pick up Accesories while you travel with it, which it may show off if you talk to it. It's up to them whether or not they want to let you put it in the Fashion Case if you ask them to hand it to you, and what can be found varies depending on the area. There's also Shiny Leaves, golden leaves that can be found in specific grass tiles in specific routes in accordance with a certain nature. If a single Pokémon manages to find all five of its potential leaves, you can take it to Ethan[=/=]Lyra's house and they will turn it into a crown for them, and if it is your first time doing so you'll also end up with a new star on your Trainer Card.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The pond southeast of Route 30 blocked by trees in the original games is now accessible. On the Route 30 side of the pond, you'll encounter fresh water Pokémon such as Poliwag. However, as surfing and fishing encounters are common to ''all'' water tiles in a given area, if you move to the Cherrygrove side of the pond, you will meet Tentacool instead, which usually inhabit seas and oceans.

* DubNameChange: Due to the games' lack of kanji (which makes it easier to keep track of the Japanese language's nightmarish amount of homophones), the Bell Tower was mistranslated as Tin Tower. The association with the Clear ''Bell'' and the fact that the remakes call the path to it Bellchime Trail and have bells on the top of the tower ended up with it being retranslated in the remakes.



* LostInTranslation: Wobbuffet's Japanese name is a pun for the phrase "That's the way it is". Naturally, this cuts down a lot of its humour value in the English dub of the anime. Translators did not make the same mistake with Wynaut.

** The two towers of Ecruteak each have a PunnyName that didn't quite make it overseas, due to the games' lack of kanji (which makes it easier to keep track of the Japanese language's nightmarish amount of homophones). In Japan, Ho-Oh and Lugia historically roosted on the ''Suzu'' and ''Kane'' towers, which were [[DubNameChange originally localized]] as Tin and Brass[[note]]Technically, ''Kane'' in this context would be properly translated as "metal", but "brass" matches better with the more accurate translation of ''Suzu''[[/note]], all playing off of the metallic ThemeNaming of the games. However, ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzu suzu]]'' and ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kane_%28instrument%29 kane]]'' are ''also'' different types of ceremonial bell, with ''suzu'' in particular closely resembling the spherical "jingle" bells Westerners would be more familiar with. The translators caught on in the remakes, with the "Clear ''Suzu''", "Tide ''Suzu''", and ''Suzu-ne no Komichi''[[note]]Clear Bell, Tidal Bell, and Bell Chime Trail[[/note]], leading to the Tin Tower being renamed the Bell Tower, which unfortunately cost the towers their metallic puns.

* EasterEgg: The Radio Card allows you to pick up anything the Radio Tower transmits, but it also allows you to pick up other sound sources, including strange radio signals from the Ruins of Alph and (for a time) Mahogany Town and the area north.

** You can trade an easy-to-acquire Drowzee for a Machop in Goldenrod City. Machop, a Fighting-type, is strong against the local Normal-type Gym Leader Whitney (though you're going to have to do a bit of LevelGrinding with it). As a bonus, it is also female, meaning you won't have to deal with the hindrance of Miltank's Attract.
** The player can take a very short detour to Route 46, just north of the first route the player travels on, and acquire a Geodude, which has an advantage for the first four gyms and most of Team Rocket, but becomes detrimental once you fight the Fighting, Steel, and Ice gyms, which have an advantage over the Rock/Ground Geodude. Graveler, and Golem.
