* Adaptation-InducedPlotHole: 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.

* PetTheDog: The Rocket extortionists on Route 43 will stop anyone who goes through the gate, but other than that, they'll leave you alone if you don't have any money on you.

** Limitations aside, there also seem to be bad choices or blatant mistakes in a few cases: Ekans is pink instead of purple, Unown are green instead of gray, Tangela is of a bright turquoise instead of a more subdued blue, Sneasel is brown instead of purple and Spinarak is purple instead of green. Most of these palettes were corrected in ''Crystal''.

** Like its predecessors, ''Gold and Silver'' have a bizarre TM list, which includes the [[FireIceLightning elemental punches]] and Endure. It wasn't until ''Ruby and Sapphire'' that the TM list starts having reoccurring moves across Generations.

* FinalBoss: You actually get two, and TheRival is not one of them. The champion trainer in this game is Lance at the League, but then several more game hours later, you meet [[spoiler:Red of ''Red and Blue'']], who is the TrueFinalBoss of the game and the strongest opponent in the game.



* RecurringBoss: Again, TheRival plays this role, running up and stopping you from proceeding in several spots while forcing you to fight him (TheRival now has his own battle theme instead of the normal trainer battle theme). The last time you run into him in a forced fight is in Mt. Moon in the post-game; he's not the FinalBoss this time (at least, not in the handheld games).

to:

* RecurringBoss: Again, TheRival plays this role, running up and stopping you from proceeding in several spots while forcing you to fight him him, including as the first trainer battle in the game, and again, whichever starter you pick, he will steal the Pokémon who is strong against it (TheRival now has his own battle theme instead of the normal trainer battle theme). The last time you run into him in a forced fight is in Mt. Moon in the post-game; he's not the FinalBoss this time (at least, not in the handheld games).


Added DiffLines:

* TrueFinalBoss: You might expect the Elite Four champion, who is Lance (himself the last of the Elite Four bosses in the previous series), to be the final opponent, [[spoiler: but this only ends the first half of the game; after the credits, you can travel through Kanto (the original landscape), and then eventually reach Mt. Silver, where the player character from the previous series, Red, is the final trainer in the game, and the most powerful of the end bosses in the handheld games.]]

* BossRush: Again, the Elite Four plus a Champion are the 5 elite trainers at the League one must confront to complete the main game, and again, you must deal with all of them in a row.

* UnfortunateNames: One of the French titles. The non-English European titles of these games aren't properly translated, and [[GratuitousEnglish follow the template of]] "('Gold Version' translated) HeartGold" and "('Silver Version' translated) SoulSilver". In French's case, the names are ''Version Or [=HeartGold=]'' and ''Version Argent [=SoulSilver=]''. And what does the latter spell when it's shortened? [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "ASS"]].

* UnfortunateNames: The French titles of the games were, for some odd reason, not translated like the others. The proper translation would have been "Coeur d'Or" and "Ame d'Argent", but instead, only the "Gold"/"Silver" part was translated, with the English names added to the end. This leads to the weird names ''Or Heart Gold'' and ''Argent Soul Silver''. And what does the latter spell when it's shortened? [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "ASS"]].
