Some Pokemon have similar cries in Gen I because of the limited technology on hand to make those cries.

It's the technology to "produce", and not to "make", that was lacking. Gameboy Phat's audio features were very limited. Which, iirc, was only of 4-bit quality.
They had created "base cries", from which all the cries would originate from. According to Bulbapedia, there were only 37 base cries for Gen I, and 67 (+30) for Gen II. Again, these base cries were only tweaked and modified to create a total of 151/252 "different" pokemon cries. This explains why some Gen I and Gen II cries sound very similar.
With the release of GBA and better consoles (8-bit sound tech+), the limitation has been lifted to much better heights.

Squish, squish, squish. I'm telling you not to look.
