* AnimationBump: Despite most Pokémon sprites suffering from color limitations (see OffModel below) , Parasect's sprite actually looks almost three-dimensional (helped by good use of dithered gradients and by Parasect's body being more or less of one color in the first place) .

* 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.
** Also in the remakes, the Viridian Gym makes up for its lack of trainers with its puzzles and adding Ace Trainers in it, and the fact that you need all other Kanto badges to reach it, as in ''Red and Blue''.

** The gender of a Pokémon is based on a randomized hidden value that modifies the Attack stat; higher values result in male Pokémon (unless the species is purely female) and thus they're physically stronger. This was in place to maintain compatibility with the [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue previous games]], in which all Pokémon save for the Nidoran families were genderless. How this affect the female zigzagged on species-to-species basis though, depending on whether they use a physical attack.

Added DiffLines:

* DoorToBefore: The duo of Route 45 and Route 46 acts as this for Johto as a whole, connecting Blackthorn City, the location of Johto's 8th and last gym, to Route 29, the game's very first route, located right outside New Bark, the player's hometown. The pair's practical contribution as a Door, however, is limited by the fact that you will almost certainly already have been using Fly for a while by the time you leave Blackthorn. It is also a one-way Door, given that Route 46 can only be traversed towards the South, since it's made up of many of the Pokémon world's infamous ledges.

* ExposedToTheElements: Neither Ethan/Lyra or Red have any qualms about exploring an icy cave or climbing a snowy mountain with freezing temperatures, even with just shorts (Ethan/Lyra) or a t-shirt (Red).
** Undermined when talking to Pokemon or specific types as they will complain about the weather.

* DayOldLegend: An event allows you to create a legendary Pokemon (Either Palkia, Dialga or Giratina, all of them representations of space, time and anti-matter) with the help of [[{{God}} Arceus]]. Apparently it involves [[{{Mindscrew}} deconstructing and then reconstructing the whole universe exactly as it was, only with an egg with one of these Pokemon inside it]].

** For some species like the starters, it is impossible to have a Shiny female due to the values required for both conflicting with each other.

While highly valued for rarity, shininess it does not necessary make the Pokémon better; they have about average potential compared to normal-colored Pokémon of the same species.

The enemy trainers who are on the ship with you change depending on what voyage you are on (you get one set for the initial journey, another on sailing from Kanto, and a third on subsequent trips from Johto).

* ChaosArchitecture: Kanto is pretty much the same as it was in ''Red'' and ''Blue''...on the outside. However, several interiors for buildings and even caves have changed radically. For example, Victory Road no longer has a the pathway with gates that require the eight Kanto badges to open, and the entrance has become a side-door into the new passage, and the Power Plant has been reduced to three rooms instead of the large abandoned complex it was in the early games. Even geographic features such as the Viridian Forest and the cave where [[spoiler:Mewtwo]] could be found are now gone and Cinnabar Island has mostly been covered in a recently-erupted volcano that was nowhere to be seen in ''Red'' and ''Blue''.
