Added DiffLines:

* ObviousRulePatch: Some UnwinnableByMistake scenarios that were possible in ''Red and Blue'' had an escape hatch added in.
** The Safari Zone lets you get in with insufficient money (and even ''no'' money, once ever), to make sure you can get Strength and Surf.
** Lorelei's Dewgong has its own AI routine added to prevent you from getting Rage-locked.

** The original tutorial for catching Pokémon, the Old Man in Viridian City, is next to no help whatsoever. He throws a Poké Ball at a wild Rattata at full health, the catch will always fail, he never even hints at the fact that weakened Pokémon are easier to catch, and then just walks away. Thanks, game.

* BlindIdiotTranslation:
** The Pokédex gives "Shellfish" as Blastoise's species, even though it's a sea turtle. This is a mistranslation of the Japanese original, in which its species was "Shell" instead.
** The names of the Soul and Marsh Badges appear to have been swapped -- the Psychic-type leader gives the Marsh Badge, while the Poison-type leader hands over the Soul Badge. [[GrandfatherClause This is kept in the sequels, adaptations and remakes]].
** So do the names of Psyduck and its evolution Golduck: out of the two, it is the former that is colored gold, and the latter that has the mastery of its psychic powers.

* BaitAndSwitchBoss: Throughout the game, any mention of the Elite Four sets them up as the final boss. When you get to their final member, Lance, his dialogue makes it sound as though he is your final challenge before becoming champion. However, after you defeat him, he reveals that [[spoiler: your Rival]] beat you to the punch and claimed the title of champion. You must now beat him as well in order to claim the title.

* ChekhovsGag: One ''20 years in the making'', no less. When Bill fuses with a Pokémon, it's just a humorous reference to ''Film/TheFly1986'', and he tells you to run the "Cell Separation System" to de-fuse him. Then in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', [[spoiler: Bill and the Cell Separation System are revealed as the only things that might save Lusamine, as she fuses an Ultra Beast and ends up getting a lot of toxins from it in her body]].

** There's a Rocket in Mt. Moon with a Raticate that knows Hyper Fang. While Raticate isn't that strong for a fully evolved Pokémon, it's a powerful foe due to Hyper Fang's 80 BP and the [=STAB=] bonus making it hit incredibly hard relative to everything you've fought up to that point. ''Yellow'' and the remakes replaced it with a Rattata and Zubat.

* BigFirstChoice: Begins the series tradition of having you choose from one of three starting Pokémon. You have to make this choice before getting to know anything about battling or the Mons themselves (other than their type.) Your rival will immediately choose the Pokémon [[ElementalRockPaperScissors strong against]] whichever you chose, and there is no way to get the ones you did not choose unless you trade them in from another game.[[note]]Using the infamous Trainer Escape Glitch allows you to catch any Pokemon in Red/Blue including the three Starter Pokemon.[[/note]]
