      This.

      Silph Co. was the BANE of my existence. I actually had a period where I quit playing because it was so difficult.

          Playing it after a long break, the thing that annoys me is that it had no post-game. Once you beat the E4, that's it. I mean, it's not like that's a MAJOR complaint, seeing as it was, after all, the FIRST generation, but still, playing it after playing even Gen II leaves me feeling somewhat unsatisfied.

          The whole part of going back and forth between Lavender Town, Celadon City and Saffron City (that includes Rocket Hideout, Silph and Co and the Pokémon Tower). I wanted to continue my journey and go explore the Pokémon world further. The dark cave before Lavender Town was just the introduction of a part in the game I didn't like that much. |D
          Also Victory Road could be done a bit differently.

            I always hated the dark cave, mostly because I didn't want to have any of my Pokemon use flash.

              For me the thing that bugged me the most was the lack of an EXP progress bar. i would always find myself groaning when i had to go to the stat screen to check the EXP to the next level.

                For me, it was Seafoam Islands. All it was for me is go in menu, Strength, push boulder to hole, random encounter, go down hole, rinse, and repeat. It gets even more annoying when you accidentally fall down a hole and you have to find your way back to the place you were pushing the boulder. Worst. Dungeon. EVER.

                "Wait, there is a shorter route to Cinnabar Island from Pallet Town? So that dungeon was pointless? FUUUUUUUUUUU

                    This just felt like a hassle, especially in the later levels. Also, having to save every time you wanted to switch to a different PC Box.

                      For me it was always Snorlax. I am find with being halted due to not unlocking something, but missing entire regions of the game because of a sleeping Pokemon? I would have much father just had a dock that was missing, and I needed Surf to get over it, or Large rocks I had to push out of the way. Not a single large Pokemon stopping me from accessing an entire Gym, multiple side quests, the Safari Zone, and numerous other things.

                        I hated any point in the game where you had to use an HM, because you always had to go the menu screen to use it. Same thing with the bicycle. I had a guide, so the actual areas weren't difficult for me~ Just took a long time.

                          Having to open the menu screen for using HMs moves and other key items, as well as having limited storage in your PC for items. I liked to store all my TMs and more powerful healing items and such in my PC until I got to the elite four, when I would then use them, and often times I had to use them sooner because I never had enough space.

                          Everything, RBY all had incredibly broken combat system. From one Sand-Attack making you miss for the next twelve rounds (if you survived that long... >.>) to Slash and Razor Leaf being 100% chance critical ratio, it was all messed up.

                            Great to see I'm not the only one who hated going to the menu screen to use HMs x) & I really hated the dark cave between Cerulean City & Lavender Town.

                              For the longest time, I didn't know about the item storage feature at the PCs.
                              I threw away the majority of battle items and TMs because my bag was filled with Key Items. I felt dumb when I decided to explore the PC and saw "Item Storage System" there. '

                              Rock Tunnel by far...
                              Going through that thing, remembering you don't have flash, decide to not go back and get it and then go through the whole thing without it...
                              Well that or Pokemon Mansion...that is just confusing, the first time through.

                                These things, pretty much. Although wouldn't a Caterpie be a dreadful choice since Bugs are weak to Rock-types and Butterfree is double-weak to Rock-types? I used a Mankey, but it was still a nightmare.

                                  Sabrina's gym! To this very day I don't know the exact way to get to her. I just go from teleporter to teleporter hoping I'll find her lol.

                                    Waterfall only learned by Goldeen and Seaking without transfer between Johto games. Not that its better than Surf. Just unfortunate.

                                      The Silph Co. was a huge pain for me when I first played the games. I had no clue where to go and I was constantly getting sidetracked with all the extra training I had to go through with the Team Rocket grunts.

                                        Wrap (And all similar moves), definitely Wrap. Though this was a greater issue in Stadium.

                                        Oh yeah. This. especially if they play the Hypnosis card or if your just plain slower.

                                        I remember when my CHARMELEON was almost KO'd by a frikken VICTREEBEL...

                                          Rock Tunnel, making it nearly all the way to the end, then dying right before the exit.
