** The freedom to go anywhere after Ecruteak City is frowned upon for being the reason that the Johto journey up to the Claire's 8th badge got saddled with [[ItsEasySoItSucks such a poor leveling-curve]]. The sad part is that this problem remained in the remakes. Consequently, the low-level curve persisted, which was the one persistent criticism the Johto games faced.

** [[RuleOfThree Yet another disliked introduction]] are [[SocializationBonus trade evolutions]] that need a Pokémon to hold a specific item. Even with the introduction of the GTS in later games, getting these trade evos is ''nearly impossible'', because anyone offering the Pokémon in question either doesn't have the necessary item on them, or otherwise asks for a Legendary or ''the evolved form you're trying to get''. What's more, even if you specifically request that you recieve a Pokémon holding the item, it's more a ''suggestion'' in practice; one that no-one will follow, by the by, netting themselves a free Rhyperior and leaving you with a Rhydon and no Protector. Oh, and woe betide those who fail to get a hold-item trade evo when the item necessary to evolve them is either very hard to get, or is only availiable ''[[LostForever once per game]]''.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: One of the games' few weaknesses is how the battles run on the comparatively sluggish and outdated Generation IV engine with slow animations and mostly static sprites, compared to Gen V's fast-paced 60 FPS battles and Gen VI's fully 3D animated battles.

* AccidentalInnuendo: There is a Firebreather in the Burned Tower named Dick in ''Gold, Silver and Crystal'', and it's probably no coincidence that he had his name changed to Richard in ''Heart Gold and Soul Silver''.

** Kris, since about half of his Poké Balls are lackluster, and most of his were bugged in a major way in the original games.

* MemeticLoser: Meganium has the dubious honor of being rated as the worst starter Pokémon in the franchise, both competitively and in-game. Even Yellow's Pikachu manages to outrank it. Of the Johto gyms, it's at a disadvantage five of them (Flying, Bug, Steel, Ice and Dragon) while having an advantage against a whooping ''zero''.

* GoddamnedBoss: Ho-Oh in ''[=SoulSilver=]'' and Lugia in ''[=HeartGold=]'', at least from a catching perspective. Three of their four moves are VERY powerful, but have 5 PP each. The fourth? Safeguard, which prevents Status conditions. This means that not only is inflicting status problems, a key element in capturing Legendaries, likely off the table (once the other three moves are depleted, they'll spam Safeguard), but also both Legendaries have a mere 40 turns worth of moves before they'll be reduced to Struggle, which will finish them off.
