* BaseBreaker: Just like Lyra from ''[=HeartGold=] [=SoulSilver=]'', Leaf suffers from this. Don't get into a conversation on whether or not she exists in the game universe.

* ScrappyMechanic: Flash is abhorred by players everywhere. It's an HM that's only needed for one single part of the game, but being an HM once learned it can never be deleted, meaning whatever you teach it to is stuck with it forever. This is made worse by the fact that the move itself is absolutely useless in battle. That's on top of the fact that only a small handful of Pokemon up to the point you need it can actually learn it. It's no wonder so many decide to just make it through Rock Tunnel in complete darkness.

In battles, Flash only has 70% accuracy, which is stuck with it forever. This is made worse by the fact pretty bad for a move that just lower the move itself is absolutely useless in battle. That's on top of opponent's accuracy. In the fact that overworld, Flash is only a small handful of Pokemon up to the point you need it can actually learn it. It's no wonder so many decide to just usable in one area. To make it through Rock Tunnel in complete darkness.matters worse, HM moves cannot be forgotten and there's no Move Deleter.

** Blue's status as a challenging champion in the originals became this once fans discovered that the majority of his team have lackluster movesets. His [[GameBreaker Alakazam]] and starter however is generally considered difficult to beat and is one of the reasons why players have a hard time against him back in the day. With the existing of new and better moves in Gen III, the remakes are kind enough to buff up his entire team.

** Later games in the franchise have been [[ItsEasySoItSucks criticized for being too easy]], but it was actually ''Yellow'' that started the trend of making the campaign easier for the player; giving the player access to all three Kanto starters, making moves more available to some pokemon [[note]]Charizard for instance could finally learn fly[[/note]], and adding some [[CrutchCharacter Crutch Pokemon]] early on to make Brock's gym battle more accessible [[note]]That being said, Yellow also created a large level jump between Erika and Sabrina/Koga (Lv30 to ''Lv50'') making the middle of the game harder than in Red/Blue [[/note]].

** Psychic-types in this game straight-up broke the game, hitting hard and fast with durable offenses ''and'' defenses, and the types which were supposed to counter them did jack squat. After the physical-special split in the fourth generation, a downplayed but still highly prevalent echo of all of the above ended up applying to the [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Dragon-type]], resulting in Pokémon like Garchomp and Salamence dominating the metagame for two generations straight before dragons' collective {{Nerf}} and the rise of fairies in Gen VI. Ironically despite the attempts for balance the Fairy-type ended up even more broken than Gen I Psychics and Dragons for the same reasons stated above.

** Professor Oak has had a few theories devised about him over the years. The first type of theory is that he's a GeniusDitz who understands Pokémon but is too stupid to keep all the data about them (or, indeed, remember his own grandson's name), hence why you have to recollect all of it. The second kind of theory puts him in a somewhat more malevolent light, either as having some illegal ties to the various villain teams or as the BiggerBad of the franchise. Some have also suggested that he is having affair with the player character's mother, and sends a ten-year-old child out into the world on his own to prevent him finding out.

* UnfortunateCharacterDesign: Cloyster heavily resembles female genitalia, with the spike above its [[BuffySpeak head ball thing]] looking like an erect clitoris. Jynx's original design also had to be changed because it was basically {{blackface}}.
