Added DiffLines:

* ForcedLevelGrinding: The cities tend to have Pokemon trainers that are at a higher level than the Pokemon (and sometimes even the other trainers) surrounding them. It reaches a head in the late game, where (for example) the Mahogany gym's trainers are all around level 20-25 while the Pokemon in the area just preceeding them are only around level 15, and the Blackthorn gym has trainers in the low-mid 30s while the Pokemon surrounding them are around level 20-25. It reaches a head in Victory Road, where trainers are level around 40-45 while the Pokemon surrounding them are still only level 30-35.

* LostForever: The game cartridges themselves are quickly dying due to the flawed internal battery system not really being designed to last past the decade since its release. Even with cartridges still playable, Espeon and Umbreon are absolutely lost, as they evolved based on the clock -- the first thing to go. Fortunately, the clock batteries are replaceable (they're [=CR2025=] button-cell batteries) and you can restore the games to full functionality, but the replacements have the same lifespan as the originals, so you'll still have to change them (and therefore restart your game) every 7 years or so.



* LostForever: Mr. Pokémon gives you the Exp. Share if you trade him a Red Scale obtained from battling the Red Gyarados. If you happen to NOT talk to him in between the time you battle the Red Gyarados and receive a Kanto Starter Pokémon from Professor Oak, he'll give you the orb needed to catch Kyogre/Groudon instead, leaving the Exp. share unobtainable. However, another Exp. Share can be obtained from Goldenrod Radio Tower Lottery if the player can match 3 digits.

* MeaningfulName: A Male Swimmer on Route 19 is named Tucker, who is panting heavily, clearly exhausted. Or in other words, tuckered out.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** A double battle with a young couple on Route 47 is a rather tongue-in-cheek version. The girl sends out an Onix, while the guy sends out a Cloyster. Unfortunately, the infamous one from the original version (i.e. Juggler Irwin saying he dropped his balls) is no longer present (see the ''Gold'' and ''Silver'' section above).
** It's probably no coincidence that a Firebreather (of all things!) in the Burned Tower named Dick in Gold and Silver had his name changed to Richard.

* UnfortunateNames: A trainer you can battle is named Firebreather Dick. Unsurprisingly, his name was changed in the remakes.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: There's a rather infamous in-game comment made by one Juggler Irwin, who, when encountering him says "Behold my graceful ball dexterity!" and when you beat him, kindly informs you he dropped his balls. The radar caught on with the remakes; he now says, "Behold my dexterity and grace!" and "Whew! That was a jolt."

Added DiffLines:

* TheArtifact: In Red, Blue, and Yellow, Route 23 was a long route containing eight checkpoints where the Players confirmed their badges to proceed to Victory road. It's made redundant here due to the introduction of a reception gate and the shrinking of Victory Road, to accommodate the fact that the League has to be accessible to two regions now. However, there is a small spit of land, seven steps across, in between Victory Road and the League still called Route 23 with nothing in it. In the remakes the route is reclassified as part of the League.

* GuideDangIt: For breeding, Pokémon are grouped in [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Egg_Group Egg Groups]] to determine which ones are compatible; if 2 Pokémon left in the Day Care share an Egg Group they'll eventually produce an egg. The game never tells you what the Eggs Groups are bar vague hints about how certain species can or can't breed with others, necessitating looking them up or good old trial-and-error. Similarly, some Pokémon can learn [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Egg_move new moves only obtainable via breeding]] with specific species that know the moves, which again the games don't tell you about or what Pokémon get which moves. This isn't exclusive to these games either; every game afterward forces you to look this info up.

** Finding most Pokémon introduced in this generation can be difficult as not only trainers tend to use previous mons a lot more, but some of them can only be found by methods not recorded by the Pokédex.
