What annoyed me the most, eh?

Definitely Whitney's Miltank. I think everyone knows why, but I'll say, Milk Drink, Rollout and Attract. Not even a higher level Pokemon could beat that beast.

I never had any troubles with Ice Path to be honest. I found it rather easy.

I've been playing through Gold recently and I've got to say that the most annoying part of the game for me so far has been Will of the Elite Four. I've put 27 hours into the game already somehow and my entire team is in the high 30's and he is just kicking my ass. I either completely lose to him, or get lucky and move onto Koga with 2-3 guys left if I'm lucky.

Honestly, gym leader Blue was annoying. I haven't beat him yet (mostly because I'm too lazy to train my pokemon). All I really have are a LV 49 Typhlosion, LV 50 Ampharos, LV 42 Ho-Oh, and a LV 41 Pinsir.

The most annoying part for me, was beating the Rocket Hideout in Mahogany Town, then having to beat more Rockets at the radio tower.

For me, the box system. I had no pokemon friend back then, so I didn't even bother catching everything avaliable in Crystal.
That thing of saving everytime boxes were changed was awful. My boxes weren't and aren't properly organized, not even now.
I have no complaint over Radio Tower, it made me feel like a hero.

I've played and beat Gold and Crystal, never Silver though. Nothing really annoyed me all that much, in fact, I really enjoyed crystal version a lot!!! It was probably the most fun I've ever had playing Pokemon.

The one thing that irritated me though was that I couldn't trade pokemon from crystal to Ruby/Sapphire.

Whitney's Miltank, Morty's Gengar, the annoying music played in Dragon's Den, accidentally killing off Raikou, the Whirl Islands, the weak replacement of Koga in Fuchsia City... Seriously, that battle was just too much of a breeze.

Whitney's Rollout [hax] Miltank, Jasmine's [hax] Steelix, Snorlax on Route 11, Karen not having Dark-types on her team even though she stated she loved dark types (I know she was limited, but she could of had something else than Vileplume. It looked dark but it's not. Freaking trump card or something...) Lance's farm of Haxonites (Dragonite), getting to the Whirl Islands in all three games, and finding the right island to go through to get to Lugia. Waiting for the Berries/Apricorns to grow back, catching Gyarados at Lake of Rage, Claire not giving me my badge and forcing me to take a test. Oh and Red's Haxachu (Pikachu). Man, those were the days. There's probably more of them, but if I try to think of them, I'll get mad and unleash my rage, like Hugh. XD

I love how people are listing more than one. lol

The complicated Whirl Islands, the weak final battle against Team Rocket, the sudden grinding I'd have to do to go through Claire and the E4, and watered down Kanto. Out of all of those I'd say the watered down Kanto ruined it for me the most.
Still a great game though!

Wild Pokemon too weak at a lot of points in the game, Especially Kanto

OMG I completely agree. But I don't think its just the wilds, they tried too hard to make Johto just the first half of the game levelwise, so you're like 7 badges in battling trainers with a level 17 Golbat. Just ridiculous.

I think my least favorite part of the game series is the Slowpoke Tail merchant. He was all "YOU SHALL NOT PASS--unless you wanna buy this from me!" Uncool man. Just uncool! XD

That and the sea route to Cianwood. Uuuuugh. TENTACOOL.

Mine was probably the rage candy-bar man. Like seriously? Come on man... Let me pass. I don't want your stupid candy that I have to feed to my Pokemon. You can't even eat it yourself!

Progression of leveling seemed a bit off compared to RBY. I always felt like I was way too strong for wild pokemon and trainers. Whitney obv. After the Olivine gym battle things seemed to progress weirdly with the storyline...and the whole Team Rocket trying to get itself together wasn't the best storyline in my opinion...but after you got to Kanto things seamed to get back on track for me...and I loved that you played through Kanto in a different order than the original RBY.

The Whirl Islands are probably my least favorite. Not a big fan of long mazes with lots of encounters. Then again, I could easily say I was annoyed when the game came to and end because of how much I enjoyed it!

Whitney and her demon Miltank. Little ****er used to almost beat me everytime in Silver. Nowadays I don't seem to have such a problem with her, probably has something with not just training my starter.

I hated those statues in the Rocket Base that would give away your position, and force you to fight the same trainers over and over again.

"We'll keep appearing until you turn off the switch!"

Sorry, just had to say that to your reply. XD Ah, another thing I hated/got annoyed was Rock Tunnel. It was annoying in RBY, and it was still annoying in GSC.

The second generation has always been my favourite, so there's not that many things I found annoying (since everything was a step up from Gen I, there wasn't really any features left out or anything). I guess the fact that the levels in Kanto are generally low is a bit irksome (though the reason for this is of course that Lance is the Champion of both regions, so he'd have to be strong enough for Kanto too). Of course this was rectified in HGSS anyway.

I've seen people mention the Sea Route to Cianwood, and I suppose that's not been annoying to me as such, but I definitely hug the wall EVERY TIME I navigate through it to Cianwood, hahaha. It seems too huge and frightening :P

The watered down version of Kanto was a huge waste of time imo. Kudos for the idea, but I wish they would have added a bit more storyline-wise. All I remember was some slow Rocket member and the gear part.

Yeah, the Radio Tower event.. when it was situated in Mahogany I quite enjoyed it but once it reached Goldenrod it just became too repetitive.
