** Special notice goes to the Elite Four. In the original games, none of their Pokémon knew TM moves, except for Bruno's Machamp and Agatha's second!Gengar who respectively knew Fissure and Toxic. In Yellow, at least one Pokémon per member knows a minimum of one TM move (or in some cases an an HM move; Lorelei has a Slowbro with both), most notably Lance's Dragonite who knows Blizzard, Thunder ''and'' Fire Blast.

* ColorWash: Carries over from ''Red and Blue'', but done much more garishly thanks to the developers' decision to heavily emphasize the color yellow for trainer sprites in-battle, as well as for more than a few Pokémon, for reasons that shouldn't need explaining. Not helping is the fact that the game frequently uses red as a compliment for yellow, even though red and yellow are notoriously clashing colors. It won't be surprising if some people coming off of this game start to feel nauseous at the sight of Ronald [=McDonald=]. There's also the rosy brown tint used for some Pokémon being changed into deep olive of all things, with the Machop line retaining that color even in Generation II.

There's also the rosy brown tint used for some Pokémon being changed into deep olive of all things, with which looks very out of place for blue and purple Pokémon using that color scheme. Strangely enough, the Machop line retaining retained that color even in for the entirety of Generation II.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' and all of its associated media insist that ghost types are the best choices against psychic types. One trainer in Sabrina's gym even says "Psychics only fear ghosts and bugs!", which is, at best, a HalfTruth in the original Pokemon generation. Not only are the only ghosts in these games weak to psychic attacks due to their secondary poison type, and not only are there no strong ghost attacks, but psychic-types are outright immune to ghost attacks thanks to a programming bug. Furthermore, there are no strong bug attacks, and many bug Pokemon are also part poison. Ghost and bug types are thus in many ways the ''worst'' choice against psychics.

** A LostInTranslation example; one NPC in the international Red and Blue offers to trade his Electrode for your Raichu. After the trade, he comments that the Raichu you traded him "went and evolved". Raichu did not evolve ''at all'' in Gen 1 (and still doesn't, as of Gen 7) -- what happened was that in the Japanese ''Pokemon Blue'', from which international ''Red and Blue'' derive their scripts, this man traded a Haunter for a Graveler, both of which ''do'' evolve, and as this was ''intended'' to hint, they evolve after being traded. However, the ''trade'' was edited during localization to match the original ''Red and Green'', just like every other in-game trade, while his ''dialogue'' was not.

** The Ghost-types in the Pokémon Tower can only be identified and properly fought once the Silph Scope is obtained. Later games don't require any sort of item to engage Ghosts.

* DummiedOut: ''[=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=]'' introduces item sprites, and even includes Hoenn-exclusive items even though it is impossible to obtain them normally. This feature is carried over to ''Emerald'' onwards even though they don't exist in ''Ruby'' and ''Sapphire''.

* LostInTranslation: Mewtwo's Pokédex entries make mention of a single scientist creating it, and various hints are dropped across the game that subtly imply Mr. Fuji was that scientist. Despite this, the English localization altered the journals so that they refer to a ''group'' of scientists rather than just one, while also keeping the mention of a single person in Mewtwo's Pokédex entry intact, thus the idea of Mr. Fuji alone creating Mewtwo is somewhat lost. This is retained in the remakes, which doesn't help.[[labelnote:*]]Nor does the greater prominence of Mewtwo's backstory in ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'', whose incarnation there actually ''is'' created by more than one scientist (and while ''a'' Dr. Fuji leads them, he's clearly not the same character as Mr. Fuji).[[/labelnote]]

** The only time the word "Kanto" is mentioned prior to Generation II is when viewing the rival's map in his house before taking it from his sister...and it is only in the Japanese version.

* GlobalCurrencyException: The Game Corner operates using coins, which can only be won from the slot machines or purchased directly for ridiculous sums (50 coins for 1000 Pokédollars.) Expect to be playing a lot of slots if you want that Porygon, which costs 9999 coins and is only available through the Game Corner.
