** Even on the outside, there are some puzzling changes. In ''Red and Blue'', the Indigo Plateau was shown on the town map as being to the northwest of Pewter City. In ''Gold and Silver'' it has somehow moved southward, and is now southwest of Pewter City, as shown on the Pokegear Map.

** In Goldenrod City, you can trade a Drowzee (''Gold and Silver'' and remakes) or Abra (''Crystal'') captured from Route 34 for the Fighting-type Machop to beat Normal-type Gym Leader Whitney. For a bonus, it is female, so it won't be hindered by Attract.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: A small one, but in the original games, a woman in the gate between Ilex Forest and Route 34 gave you TM12, Sweet Scent, to help you complete your Pokedex. Sweet Scent has an out-of-battle effect to attract wild Pokemon, so this makes sense. In the remakes, her dialogue remains unchanged and you still get TM12 from her, but Gen IV's TM12 instead contains Taunt, a move that has no obvious use in aiding Pokemon captures.

** The player can take a very short detour to route 46, just north of the first route the player travels on, and acquire an Geodude, which has an advantage for the first four gyms.

Added DiffLines:

* BossOnlyLevel: For a given definition of "level", the Olivine, Viridian and Cinnabar Gyms still only have their respective Leader to fight. Both the Olivine and Cinnabar gyms justify it in some way:
** The Olivine Gym's lack of trainers is made up for with the Glitter Lighthouse, which is a prerequisite for being able to fight Jasmine. In the remakes, the trainers who moved back in with her just encourage you along, since they already fought you in the lighthouse.
** The Cinnabar Gym was relocated to the Seafoam Islands following Cinnabar Island's destruction, leaving Blaine as the only trainer to fight. This is changed in the remakes, in which he had time to rearrange a proper gym with trainers and a flame design.
** And in the remakes, the Viridian Gym makes up for its lack of trainers with its puzzles, and the fact that you need all other Kanto badges to reach it, as in ''Red and Blue''.

* ArtifactTitle: In ''Red'', ''Blue'' and ''Yellow'', Giovanni, a Ground-type specialist, was the leader of Viridian City Gym. In this game he has been replaced by Blue, who uses many different types of Pokémon, but the badge he hands over is still called the Earth Badge.[[labelnote:*]]This isn't the case in Japanese, where the Kanto Badges are named after colors -- and since Blue is known Green in Japan, it's only fitting he gives the Green Badge![[/labelnote]]
