Honestly, the storage system and how it worked was very annoying to me. It's so much more convenient nowadays.

Getting into a fight with 1 pokemon left, winning that fight but your poisoned and your advancing to the next town, a pokemon center in sight and your last pokemon faints and you go all the way back to the last town.

Definitely Silph Co. I somehow felt obligated to fight every Team Rocket member there, so I would quite literally wander around for hours just to confirm that I did.

^This exactly. I don't want to use Stadium 2 to re-arrange all my boxes, darn it! Move box, save, deposit, move box, save, withdraw, move box, etc...

Mt. Moon, Seafoam Islands, The Safari Zone and The Unknown Dungeon. Seriously, I've played RBY dozens of times and I still manage to get lost. Naturally, I'm always all, "I've played through this game so many times, I won't get lost. I don't need to look at the guide", and then twenty minutes later, "I'm lost forever!"

The PC due to it being a pain to use. I wasn't use to it anymore after I played the newer games. Rock Tunnel comes second.

Rock Tunnel. Basically because the first time I played I didn't know about the flash HM and I had to go through it without seeing a thing lol

Rock Tunnel, the Storage System, and particularly Fuschia City's Gym for me. Particularly the Gym though due to how underleveled I was at the time not to mention I was going through Antidotes faster than a fat man goes through toilet paper after 10 bowls of chili.

Gotta love the high life.

The unstableness of the game. Shutting off while it's saving tends to lead to some really weird things. By accident, obviously. (Okay, the first time) It's annoying how it can be so unstable, but it's better than crashing.

Wait, I have to choose something from the game? Storage Boxes. Hate them.

I think everyone agrees upon Rock Tunnel.Besides that, I'd say the only thing I think the game could have improved on was the general flow. There are many moments where the player has to guess where to go and what to do, and many times younger children get stuck (This is why I think most non-veterans refuse to play these games). A prime example would be the guards posted around Saffron City. The soda machines? Really? Come on, guys.

The part with Sliph. Co. The teleporting floor tiles was really annoying and all the battles were overwhelming.
She had gold hair the color of money and red eyes, the color of blood.

Silph Co. is really annoying but eventually I got the hang of it and for the most part I know how to get to Gary after I battle Team Rocket; ALL OF THEM!

In Yellow particularly Pikachu not being able to evolve, that really annoyed me.

Then legendaries were really annoying by destroying my team.

Rock Tunnel because I was too lazy to get Flash, and Silph Co because who honestly enjoyed the Team Rocket interventions? :c

Bind, wrap, they pissed me off. In pokemon stadium lance would honestly beat me just because his dragonite would spam wrap until I was done.

I remember being far too lazy to bother catching enough Pokemon to score that Flash TM, so every time I went through Rock Tunnel, I walked the entire thing in the pitch black, walking into walls and wild pokemon every step of the way. Didn't help that the first five or six runthroughs were done on a GBC.

  1. The Pokémon Mansion. x_x
  2. Constantly bumping into Zubats in caves.
  3. Wrap.

Ahahaa I did that first time playing, I didn't know about Flash until someone told me after, after many attempts (sometimes going back through the entrance) I managed to get out of the tunnel. <3

The thing that really annoyed me in the first generation games was Mt. Moon and the part where you had to battle bunch of trainers to see Bill, and a Victory Road, always pain in a butt. /:

Pokemon Mansion because every single step has a chance of having wild Pokemon.

OMG I HATED WRAP AND BIND! I'd completely forgotten they'd existed until reading this thread and now I'm filled with rage at their mere mention. Rock Tunnel and Silph Co and all those tunnels were fine for me, because I had a strategy guide, but if some evil critter decides to Wrap your Pokemon, there's no way you're getting out of that mofo! Grr...

And those geodude ALWYAS used Selfdestruct; which always OHKO'd my I had to come back and forth out of the Rock Tunnel, healing my pokemon. Also, I didn't like how it was dark and you needed flash; that part was also annoying. :l
I never received Flash, so imagine my torment of making it through Rock Tunnel in the dark. :v

So, to answer the original question:
- Mt. Moon was horrible because the constant Zubats.
- Rock Tunnel was horrible because I never got Flash.
- Fuschia City gym was horrible because there's a very steep level curve between his gym and the rest of the world. None of my Pokemon had even hit 40 yet and he had a level 50 Venomoth. D:

Silph Co. - And Sabrina's gym for that matter. The moving and teleporting titles got annoying and confusing.

Fuchsia Gym- The invisible walls always threw me making me spend a long time to get to Koga. And in Yellow where is Pokemon are overleveled compared to Erica's who had levle 30 Pokemon. Then Koga has Pokemon 48-50? Completely unfair.

The music in Lavender Town in general annoyed me, I hated going through there.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I agree with this. Many times I raged when I first played this game because I kept forgetting where I was going.
