Probably the part in Mt. moon. Going through the caves while battling Team Rocket was boring.

The caves really annoyed me, especially Mt. Moon & the one on Victory Road.

Hate the part were you go to the cave that you have to use flash and victory road to elite four.

Rock Tunnel
I spent 2 weeks in that stupid cave on my acctual GBA, and a week with my VBA.

I didnt have flash, and I always ran into stupid geodudes, and I got my Squirtle from level 12, to level 34 within the two weeks, fighting stupid geodudes. After a few days, I just gave up on running, and fought. The next gyms were easier :3

Ok, Rock Tunnel. I hate it. Also, what's everyone so confuzzled about Rocket Hideout and Silph Co.? It was hella easy the 1s time running through. OK, I admit the elevator was a bit annoying to find out how to work the elevator in Rocket.

I don't remember ever having much trouble with Rock Tunnel, or Mount Moon, but my lord, did I hate Victory Road and the Seafoam Islands.
I love the Safari Zone, but to this day, I still hate just HOW difficult it is to get Chansey, Tauros, and your bug of choice...

When I first played R/B/Y [it was Red, I think], I found Seafoam Islands incredibly difficult for some reason. I don't even recall why, but I just remember it being frustrating. Victory Road was annoying, too.

The Seafoam Islands were so awful that I usually flew to Pallet just to avoid them.

I think everyone can agree with me when I say that Rock tunnel was a pain to get through.

1. I didn't know how to get Flash, or what purpose it had.

2. I didn't know the way out, so if any of my teammates fainted, I would have to wait until I got out.

There you go, Rock Tunnel drove me crazy.

nothin' beats the classics.

Silph Co. isn't hard at all. You just need patience. I beat LeafGreen when I was 8 years old.
I'm 12 now. The thing that annoyed me is everything with Zubats and Tentacools. I hate them. I just use repels when entering caves and surfing the sea. In yellow... Pikachu is weak against rock.... always training caterpie...

The Part in the game that annoyed me the most in Pokemon RBYG was the fact that I really wanted to go into Saffron City but I couldn't because the guards was thirsty and I felt that wasn't my problem to give them water

I learned soo much form my first journey of Kanto on Blue

- I hate Zubats and tentacools that relentlessly jump out at you
- If a tunnels pitch black then it means you should find and use flash, Took me forever to get through it not knowing Flash even existed..
- Lt Surges Switches ¬_¬
- Wasting a master ball on Articuno thinking it was the dogs danglys
- The strain of trying to catch a Mewtwo without said Master ball
- Lorelei's Lapras on the first ever playthrough seemed invincible!

For me it was either getting owned by Brock like 40 times in yellow or the excessive amount of Zubat and Tentacool you run into throughout the games.

Silph Co. without a doubt. Back when I didn't know how to get through the place, I'd just try every single warp panel hoping to get lucky.

I hate Rock Tunnel and Victory Road in R/B/Y. I used to dread going in there because it took like an hour to get out.

It was so infuriating and I couldn't believe how slowly you moved around. -.- Other than that, I remember discovering that cheat about Missingno and exploiting it to the fullest. It was fun for a while, then I realised that cheating wasn't the way to go and it got boring. XD

I hated the Rocket Hideout...
The spinning, the music, EVERYTHING.
Also, trying to go through Mt. Moon/Rock Tunnel without repels...
That was a pain in the butt.

For me it'd probably be the tons of Zubat and Tentacool you run into. Either that or getting through the Rock Tunnel without the HM for Flash(because I never have room for an HM slave).
