* ConspicuouslyLightPatch: Koga's Gym has "invisible walls" that you have to find your way around to get to the Gym Leader. The tiles with "invisible walls" on them have four white dots, allowing you to find the right path fairly easily.

* ConspicuouslyLightPatch: Koga's Gym has "invisible walls" that you have to find your way around to get to the Gym Leader. The They're not so invisible in ''Red and Blue'', where they're clearly visible as dotted lines. They're a little more well-hidden in ''[=FireRed and LeafGreen=]'', but the tiles with "invisible walls" invisible walls on them have four white dots, still allowing you to find the right path fairly easily.



* ContractualBossImmunity: The storyline dictates that the Marowak ghost found in the Pokémon Tower must pass on via you beating it up, so don't even think of trying to catch it. Not even the Master Ball (if you use cheats to get it at this point) will work on it. And of course, Pokémon owned by Trainers can't be captured either.



* PoorPredictableRock: Every gym leader and Elite Four member devotes him or herself to one particular type. Justified, since they are meant to test trainers by providing them a challenge.

** When it comes to a Pokémon's level-up movepool, they'll generally only learn Normal moves and moves of their respective type(s) -- and sometimes, such as with [[BigCreepyCrawlies Scyther and Pinsir]], not even that! This makes [=TMs=] more essential for giving Pokémon diverse movesets, though later games would give most Pokémon at least one move of a different type in their level-up movelist.

* DevelopersForesight: To ensure your rival gets the Eevee originally intended for you, so that Professor Oak gives you the Pikachu you'd just seen him capture, a trash can is placed in Professor Oak's laboratory so that it blocks your path to behind the table on which Eevee's Poké Ball sits.

* SchrodingersPlayerCharacter: Along with ''Crystal'', these games are the only ones in the series to date that play this straight. Whoever you do not choose out of Red and Leaf does not appear in the game at all.

** Any player who beats the Master Cup in ''VideoGame/PokemonStadium'' or its sequel with a Pikachu in their party will have said Pikachu learn Surf (a move Pikachu otherwise cannot legitimately learn). ''Pokémon Yellow'' took this unlockable a few steps forward in that not only there's a special overworld sprite for when Pikachu uses the move outside of battle, a house south of Saffron City allows the player can play an ''VideoGame/ExciteBike'' clone called "Pikachu's Beach". Since the Virtual Console release can't connect to any version of ''Stadium'', it lets you play the minigame with any Pikachu.

* SurferDude: If Pikachu knows Surf (which is unlockable by using VideoGame/PokemonStadium), his field sprite for using the move will be him on a Surf Board. This also unlocks an VideoGame/{{Excitebike}} clone titled "Pikachu's Beach", which is accessible from a house on Route 19. This is unlocked by default in the UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole re-release.

The first installments of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' franchise hit the GameBoy in 1996 in Japan (as ''Red'' and ''Green''; see below) and in 1998 in North America. Taking place in a part of the world called Kanto (later shown to be east of a region called Johto; three years after Team Rocket is taken down in Kanto both regions are explored by a kid from Johto) based on the Japanese region of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Kanto]], the [[ExcusePlot plot is simple]]: [[HelloInsertNameHere you, an eleven-year-old with a]] NiceHat, are offered your very first [[{{Mon}} Pokémon]] by Professor Oak, the local authority on Pokémon. He gives you a choice of three different types: [[GreenThumb Bulbasaur]], [[PlayingWithFire Charmander]], or [[MakingASplash Squirtle]]. His own grandson, your long-time [[TheRival Rival]], gets second pick, and takes advantage of this to snag [[ElementalRockPaperScissors whichever one happens to be strong against your chosen partner]].

After a successful run, ''Red'', ''Blue'', and ''Yellow'' were followed by the GameBoyColor-enhanced (though they can still be played on a previous incarnation of the GameBoy, as well as later ones) ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', taking place three years after Red became champion and featuring that kid from Johto mentioned above, the return of Team Rocket, and improved the graphics that ''Yellow'' didn't (back sprites, etc.).

Jump ahead a couple gens, and ''Red'' and ''Blue'' reappeared once more in the form of their {{Video Game Remake}}s on the GameBoyAdvance: ''[=FireRed=]'' and ''[=LeafGreen=]''. These allowed players to relive the classic games with many of the new benefits, tweaks, and balances of the second and third generations, though it took some {{Retcon}}ning here and there, and added in some new areas to explore after finishing the familiar challenge(s).

* {{Retcon}}: In the original versions, there were only 151 known Pokémon in the ''whole world''. In the GameBoyAdvance remakes, this was changed to there being only 151 Pokémon known to inhabit the Kanto region.

* OneTimeDungeon: The S.S. Anne sets sail once you heal the captain and leave, taking any items you forgot or trainers you didn't fight with it. Since there's quite a few trainers and [=TMs=] in there, you might want to check it thouroughly before healing the captain.
