* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** A double battle with a young couple on Route 47 is a rather tongue-in-cheek version. The girl sends out an Onix, while the guy sends out a Cloyster. Unfortunately, the infamous one from the original version (i.e. Juggler Irwin saying he dropped his balls) is no longer present (see the ''Gold'' and ''Silver'' section above).
** It's probably no coincidence that a Firebreather (of all things!) in the Burned Tower named Dick in Gold and Silver had his name changed to Richard.

* UnfortunateNames: A trainer you can battle is named Firebreather Dick. Unsurprisingly, his name was changed in the remakes.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: There's a rather infamous in-game comment made by one Juggler Irwin, who, when encountering him says "Behold my graceful ball dexterity!" and when you beat him, kindly informs you he dropped his balls. The radar caught on with the remakes; he now says, "Behold my dexterity and grace!" and "Whew! That was a jolt."

Added DiffLines:

* TheArtifact: In Red, Blue, and Yellow, Route 23 was a long route containing eight checkpoints where the Players confirmed their badges to proceed to Victory road. It's made redundant here due to the introduction of a reception gate and the shrinking of Victory Road, to accommodate the fact that the League has to be accessible to two regions now. However, there is a small spit of land, seven steps across, in between Victory Road and the League still called Route 23 with nothing in it. In the remakes the route is reclassified as part of the League.

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: The Spiky-Eared Pichu you can get cannot evolve due to the amount of time travel it has been through.

* GuideDangIt: For breeding, Pokémon are grouped in [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Egg_Group Egg Groups]] to determine which ones are compatible; if 2 Pokémon left in the Day Care share an Egg Group they'll eventually produce an egg. The game never tells you what the Eggs Groups are bar vague hints about how certain species can or can't breed with others, necessitating looking them up or good old trial-and-error. Similarly, some Pokémon can learn [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Egg_move new moves only obtainable via breeding]] with specific species that know the moves, which again the games don't tell you about or what Pokémon get which moves. This isn't exclusive to these games either; every game afterward forces you to look this info up.

** Finding most Pokémon introduced in this generation can be difficult as not only trainers tend to use previous mons a lot more, but some of them can only be found by methods not recorded by the Pokédex.

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

** Even on the outside, there are some puzzling changes. In ''Red and Blue'', the Indigo Plateau was shown on the town map as being to the northwest of Pewter City. In ''Gold and Silver'' it has somehow moved southward, and is now southwest of Pewter City, as shown on the Pokegear Map.

** In Goldenrod City, you can trade a Drowzee (''Gold and Silver'' and remakes) or Abra (''Crystal'') captured from Route 34 for the Fighting-type Machop to beat Normal-type Gym Leader Whitney. For a bonus, it is female, so it won't be hindered by Attract.
