** Psychic's only weaknesses are Bug and Ghost-type attacks, but the only Bug moves in these games are incredibly weak while Ghost is bugged so it has no effect on Psychic-types.
** Roar and Whirlwind's only effect is to end battles with wild Pokémon. The "Run" command does it for free without requiring a moveslot and will usually work unless your active Pokémon has a low Speed stat.

Psychic-types. Even when the bug is removed Ghost only have two offensive moves here; the feeble Lick and the FixedDamageAttack Night Shade.
** Roar and Whirlwind's only effect is to end battles with wild Pokémon. The "Run" command does it for free without requiring a moveslot and will usually work unless your active Pokémon has a low Speed stat. Later generations improved these moves by making them {{Switch Out Move}}s in trainer battles.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Pretty much every change in this version was ignored by ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', which instead derived everything Kanto-based from ''Red and Blue'' aside from Red's team (Pikachu + three starters). ''[=FireRed=]'' and ''[=LeafGreen=]'' also incorporate very little of ''Yellow'''s gameplay.

One of the few exceptions would be Pikachu's "relationship" with the Player Character, which served as a prototype of ''Gold'' and ''Silver's'' Friendship mechanics.

** The ElementalRockPaperScissors has a number of oddities. Due to a bug, Psychic-types are immune to Ghost attacks, which are played up by [=NPCs=] and the anime as their primary weakness. Intentionally, Ice does neutral damage to Fire-types instead of being resisted, and Bug and Poison are both super effective against each other. Dragon-types are already programmed to be super-effective against themselves, but they might as well not be since the only damage-dealing Dragon-type move is a FixedDamageAttack.

** Subverted for the Virtual Console releases. Unlike other VC games, Red & Blue (as well as Yellow) can still battle and trade with each other, using wireless communications.

** Pikachu will [[Recap/PokemonS1E1PokemonIChooseYou distrust the player at first]], but will grow to like the player over time.



* DummiedOut: Not only is this subverted for the Virtual Console release's multiplayer as with Red and Blue- the Surfing Pikachu minigame no longer requires said Pokemon to know Surf in order to play.

* EasterEgg: If you {{Sequence Break|ing}} so that the S.S. Anne doesn't leave, and you come back with Surf, you'll find a truck to the right of the ship. While it doesn't do anything in the original games, [[spoiler:there's a Lava Cookie hidden near it in the remakes]].
