* RegionalRedecoration: According to legend the Lake of Rage was formed from a bunch of Gyarados creating a massive storm that left a giant crater, which then filled with rainwater, creating the lake we know today.

* ShipLevel: On their first trip to Kanto the player has to board the S.S. Aqua. After that it sails from Kanto every Sunday and Wednesday, and from Johto every Monday and Friday. 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''.

* RecurringBoss: Again, TheRival plays this role, running up and stopping you from proceeding in several spots while forcing you to fight 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).

** In addition to TheRival, the two leaders of Team Rocket in this generation are both fought twice each towards the end of Johto, one after the other both times.

* {{Wutai}}: Although all the regions in the main series are based on Japan (except Unova and Kalos), only a few towns are actually obviously Japanese-influenced, and they're all in Johto. Of special note is Ecruteak City, whose music was remixed in ''[=HeartGold=] and [=SoulSilver=]'' to sound more Japanese. Interestingly, Cianwood City, which it originally shared music with, has a separate remix that does not use the Japanese-sounding instruments of Ecruteak's version.

Added DiffLines:

* ForcedLevelGrinding: The cities tend to have Pokemon trainers that are at a higher level than the Pokemon (and sometimes even the other trainers) surrounding them. It reaches a head in the late game, where (for example) the Mahogany gym's trainers are all around level 20-25 while the Pokemon in the area just preceeding them are only around level 15, and the Blackthorn gym has trainers in the low-mid 30s while the Pokemon surrounding them are around level 20-25. It reaches a head in Victory Road, where trainers are level around 40-45 while the Pokemon surrounding them are still only level 30-35.

* LostForever: The game cartridges themselves are quickly dying due to the flawed internal battery system not really being designed to last past the decade since its release. Even with cartridges still playable, Espeon and Umbreon are absolutely lost, as they evolved based on the clock -- the first thing to go. Fortunately, the clock batteries are replaceable (they're [=CR2025=] button-cell batteries) and you can restore the games to full functionality, but the replacements have the same lifespan as the originals, so you'll still have to change them (and therefore restart your game) every 7 years or so.



* LostForever: Mr. Pokémon gives you the Exp. Share if you trade him a Red Scale obtained from battling the Red Gyarados. If you happen to NOT talk to him in between the time you battle the Red Gyarados and receive a Kanto Starter Pokémon from Professor Oak, he'll give you the orb needed to catch Kyogre/Groudon instead, leaving the Exp. share unobtainable. However, another Exp. Share can be obtained from Goldenrod Radio Tower Lottery if the player can match 3 digits.

* 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.
