To me the most annoying part was reaching the secret house in the Safari Zone. Took me a few tries and I was annoyed by the time I finally reached it.

The cave where you have to use strength and move the rocks around. I think it was Seafoam Islands? So freakin' tedious. That and the cave right before the Indigo Plateau was annoying too.

I don't like Geodude... if they are at a sufficiently high level and you send out a Pokemon that isn't Grass- or Water- type (and isn't overleveled), they're just gonna survive and then use Selfdestruct, which hurts like hell considering it's a 300 base power attack.

Especially in Rock Tunnel and Victory Road, where Graveler are also present. I hate those two caves.

The most annoying thing in Emerald for me was May, her stupid happy song when she wants to battle.
I see this when I'm dizzy.

As a child the Pokemon Mansion would confuse the heck out of me. It became especially enraging when those level 43 Raticates wouldn't let me run away and just take chunks of my HP away with Hyper Fang. Too much for my small child temper to handle.

For me? I'd say........... oh god no. I remember playing through the Lass girls and they would have Bellsprouts, and the Bellsprouts would always use wrap and stun spore on me. Ugh, it gave me nightmares! That wasn't a great experience for me. XD

I think the caves were the worst for me.
Mostly because I would always forget my way around, so I'd end up at the beginning of the cave going "What the heck-I'm lost!"

The things that irritated me in R/B/Y were (and still are):

"You missed the Pokémon" even when it's at like, 1 HP and asleep or frozen.

Lt.Surge's gym puzzle. Seriously, the location of the second switch seems completely on a random side to the first switch.

Realizing I'd defeated everyone and couldn't fight any trainers anymore except the Pokémon League.
What would I like to see in the future? A few things, actually.
1) A trio of ROM hacks [gen1, gen2, gen3] that, aside from the generation, are pretty much identical: You start in Kanto and post-elite four you travel through Johto as it would have been "3 years ago".
2) A demake of Heart Gold / Soul Silver. Possibly using Fire Red as a base.
3) An official Pokémon game, following the standard "gotta catch 'em all" format, but aimed more at the older players.

I agree with this, I always hated it. Then when you had to head to the Pewter Gym you had to keep grinding your Pikachu in the wild to even stand a chance against him.
If you want to play Dota2 with me, just send me a PM, I'm always willing to play in a stack :D

I hated how dominant Psychic types were. They had no good checks or counters back then, so when somebody sent out Alakazam, I knew it was over.

There are many things I could list about First Generation annoyances, but the honorable mention goes to the guards that watch over the gate houses into Saffron City.. if they're so thirsty, then why couldn't they just get the drink themselves?
