* BaseBreakingCharacter: Lyra. Mostly for replacing Kris. Although she did receive a noticeable spike in popularity once fans realized she dressed like a [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] [[{{Cosplay}} cosplayer]].

* CommonKnowledge: Slowking evolving from Slowbro. It isn't, and is actually a split evo that branches from Slow''poke''.

** The low payouts for Pokéathlon, made worse by the slowness of the events themselves making it tedious to farm points. It doesn't help that Pokéathlon is the only reliable source to get the elemental stones before beating the Elite Four. Otherwise you have to rely on the Pokégear calls from certain trainers, who call randomly and tend to talk about irrelevant matters instead of giving the stones.



* ThatOneLevel: Pennant Capture in Pokéathlon Dome. It's hard to control your character unless you have good Skill and Speed. Even then, it's usually up to luck if you do well or not. Your opponents are really good at stealing your flags, and it's hard to steal them back from them. Worst of all, to get 100% Completion in the Pokéathlon Dome, you have to match the second record of fifty flags, when the average player gets somewhere between twenty to thirty. You have 60 seconds; you can only get nine at a time, and it takes four seconds to gather up your flags and switch to your next partner.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A sidequest reveals just what happened to Giovanni after his defeat to Red (culminating in you facing him), and expands on Silver's backstory and why he is who he is. What did they do with this? Completely lock it away from the player unless they have a Celebi, and since Wi-Fi events for these games are long over, [[LostForever nobody is going to experience any of it without cheating]].

** Typhlosion is no slouch in the [[TookALevelinBadass remakes.]] Fast, access to a lot of strong fire-type moves early on, benefits more from sunlight, and packs the absolutely devastating Eruption, which will likely [[OneHitKO one-shot anything within five levels.]] It helps that, like Feraligatr, plenty of gyms have a weakness to it, no less than 4 out of 16, compared to Feraligatr's 2 out of 16. (The only three which are resistant are the final gym (fair enough), and the two post-game ones. Although, it is much less this than Feraligatr was in the originals thanks to much better competitive balance, keeping it from being absolutely broken.

This and Feraligatr's aforementioned Ice Punch is likely the reason elemental punches are much harder to obtain in subsequent generations when they lost their TM status.

Added DiffLines:

** Sabrina's redesign. Either it is an unexpected but refreshing revamp of her or it takes away the [[EvilIsCool menacing charm]] given by her original design and the [[AdaptationalVillainy outright]] [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} malicious]] [[Manga/PokemonAdventures counterparts]] associated with them.
