Imen4srslz, I actually thought I saw BA Model for half a second fighting Marowak.
Also one time I saw the Hypno cave in the exact same area it was in the pasta..
I burned the cartridge and removed the ROMs I had put on some websites without Pokemon Green. O_O God forbid..

I think the most frustrating thing about the old games was when special was one stat on the r/b/y and when all type moves were all either special or pysical on g/s/c bringing in that into the new games is definately the biggest improvement

Pokemon Tower. I normally luve Gastlys *huggable* but that place keeps ruining them for me. Also, I don't like how the bottom floor of this is the one place in R/B/Y when people actually talk about mature issues. As a kid it really confused me: Do Pokemon die or not?

Also, Rock Tunnel.

Yeah, breeding really could have been fun in RBY. But the whole charm of the trading aspect would have blown over a lot by it. Although the one thing that really bothers me now when I play the RBY games is not being able to evolve mons that require a trade to evolve. I don't own a working system for just RBY trading, so it seems I'll be stuck with my Haunter forever. Other than that, the requirement to pretty much get a fighting type at the beginning of Yellow just because of Brock's gym.

Pokemon Tower, there was a Gastly like every 3 steps and it was just an overall irritating experience. I wasn't a fan of Rock Tunnel either.

Going through Rock Tunnel and Mt. Moon. Every time I go through any of those caves I have dreams of getting attacked by Zubats that night.

I also hated the Pokemon Tower without the Silph Scope. I got scared of the ghosts when I was little.

And I thought only a few people hated Rock Tunnel! It was one of the worst places to go through and it had me stuck for a couple of hours until I actually made my way to the exit, the relief! Until I saw there were more trainers between me and Lavender lol!

Also I can't forget how Blue swept my team with his LV 30-40 Venusaur in Silph. Co except for my LV 15-20 Bellsprout which couldn't be touched because of the types it is and Venusaur's attacks. Had to keep using Cut to slowly beat him, back then I just thought it was becuase they were plant type Pokemon.

I played Pokemon Blue when I was four. I was awful at it as I just kept battling trainers until my Squirtle was 20 levels above them and could barely beat them. Anyway when it got to the part where I needed to go to Saffron I couldn't get in as I didn't know that I needed to give the guard a drink. So for the next four years I wandered around until randomly I figured out what to do. However I had no problems for the rest of the game as my Blastoise was level 90 while the rest of my team were below 10. Also Silph Co and Saffron gym were annoying.

I can never remember which floor the Card Key is on in Silph Co. when I do run-throughs of the game... Also, I hate the part in Victory Road where you must push a boulder WAY to the left and onto a switch because I run into so many wild pokemon trying to do it.

I hated the confusing damage multipliers. what, with types and such. that said, I played Gen II first, then Gen III, then, and only Gen I. It just didn't make sense to me. It incorporated ONE type and I often didn't know which.

I hated Zubats and Geodudes and Tentacools coming at you bro every five steps.

I hated Brock with a passion. Pikachu just isn't meant to do that sort of thing, and I didn't like Mankeys.

Diglett's Cave. Oh, my God. Fu-... uh, Fork that stupid cave.

>enter with Pikachu
>level 30 Dugtrio
>challengeaccepted.jpg uploaded
>few moves later
>Pikachu fainted!
>kills whole rest of party

That said, I didn't like having to start with perhaps the weakest pokemon in the game.

Grindan' in that game -- most difficult task ever. It is simply the worst. It took me the better part of half an hour to get Pidgeotto to 36 from 30 in the mid-20's grass outside of that one city, the one with Koga... I forget its name.

SILPH FORKIN' CO. Hated that God-forsaken place, with its oh-my-God-I-want-to-commit-murder teleporting panels.

All in all, it's a fine game, and it was the start to the best series ever made, but it wasn't my favorite out of said series. That was Silver, with no close second. Far second, sure, Black is awesome. But that's getting off topic.

The cave to go to Lavender Town was just the most horrible moment I remember. Ok, now I know it, I don't have any problem to pass through it, but when I was 6, when I entered in this cave for the first time, without Flash (I didn't really know the game and I guess I didn't know Flash existed either), with a few items like Potions etc, it was AWFUL ! When my Pokemon were almost KO I couldn't regress otherwise I had to begin again everything !
Yeah, a horrible moment for me...
