Not being able to travel fast was kind of a problem for me, but that was easily fixed as soon as I got my hands on the bicycle. (:

Being poisoned was the thing that troubled me the most. Every time my Pokémon were poisoned, the screen used to become pixelated with some sort of a scary sound effect. This used to make me think that my batteries were running out of power, so I constantly had them replaced with new ones. I've wasted a lot of good batteries that way, haha.

    The fact that there was nothing to do after the League aside from completing the Pokedex was really annoying like what was GF thinking? They could've at least added some fun side quests. Also I think the fact that we couldn't rebattle trainers other than the Elite 4 and Champion made training tedious.

      Worst thing for me was the limited bag space. It was tiny!!! Everytime i wanted to use an item i had to withdraw it from the PC such a hassle.

          The most frustrating thing for me was the Safari Zone. It was always a darn gamble whether or not you would catch any of those Pokémon! Rage.

            The part that annoyed me the most was going through the Rock Tunnel without Flash to get to Lavender town.

                  Both of these!

                  I used to get so mad when the screen would do that flashy thing and I could never figure out why my pokemon kept dying.

                    I thought my Emerald was broken and I was about to return it when one of my Pokémon got poisoned for the first time. I was so confused.

                    Caves D: It was an absolute nightmare with random encounters popping here and there! I also remember avoiding the cemetery, the music of that city itself sort of freaked me out back then for some funny reason.

                      The fact that the yellow version I was playing was an old one (played it after Ruby and Sapphire) and was loving it, loving my Pokémon aaand all of a sudden the game broke. 3:
                      After that I simply couldn't be bothered to play any of the first gen games.

                      But from FR/LG I remember the victory road being a pain.

                          Oh yeah, the Wrap attack which could be deadly if the enemy pokemon has quicker speed than you.

                          Also, the bag issue. It was so small! TM's and Key items would fill the bag up quite easily. I'm pleased that the next gen had different areas of the bag to store your items in.

                            the thing than annoyed me the most in R/B/Y was Pychic pokemon being broken and the move wrap as some other posts have said the reason why.

                              Pretty much the whole beginning. Until the 3rd gym it's just a very big, slow grindjob. After that everything flows very nicely though.

                              And obviously that dark cave your supposed to use Flash for. The worst HM of all time. I think most of the time I didn't even bother getting an HM slave for it and just forced my way through the darkness. Worst thing in any Pokémon game, Jesus Christ...
                              So glad there is no HM Flash in gen 6.


                              -- Matt.
                              EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot about the bag issue. Man that was a pain in the ass. Always had to get rid of something to get something else. Did anyone ever actually use the PC to store items?

                                Choosing Charmander and refusing to get a bug Pokemon in the Veridian Forest. I would have trashed the Bug Pokemon after Brock, so why bother?
                                If I had Charmander Brock was a pain. Same with Pikachu in Pokemon Yellow.

                                I also hated having to hotkey for my bike. Having to bring up the item menu every time.. Ugh!

                                But really the ultimate annoyance was how there were basically no options if you wanted a very strong team. You'd get the legendaries and Dragonite and they were basically stronger than every other Pokemon.

                                  In yellow actually 2 things for me:
                                  - The rock-type pokemon at higher lvl because my Pikachu only had electric attacks and only 1 average other attack which ran out of PP too fast.
                                  - The fact that the lavender town tune never creeped me out and I even forgot it.

                                    Omg, yes the Wrap move irritated me so many times...! I once was Paralyzed AND confused too and some Ekans of a Lass (seriously, what Lass would train a "scary snake"? xD) used Wrap on my Charmeleon - "Charmeleon is Paralyzed", "Charmeleon hurts itself in its confusion!", and then the agonizing 8th attack streak of Wrap finished him of...

                                    The lame sprites kinda bugged me the most though xD They were so PIXELATED! i remember training my Magikarp for an awesome Gyarados in my team, and when it finally evolved, it was just kind of an "improved" Magikarp sprite, the only thing that was different where the 3 horns Gyarados has attached to it... The back sprites of Magikarp and Gyarados looked alot like... just if you were still having a Magikarp
                                    Also, alot of other Pokemon had very bad sprites too. Anyone remembers Koffing for example from R/B? I also got very irritated with the back sprite from Charmeleon, looks waaaay to chubby imo Blastoise was way too round and don't get even started on the sprite of Moltres... terrible xD (but still kinda fun too though)

                                    Also have had alot of annoying memories about Rock Tunnel. That was always a thing I hated doing in every new Save File xD I knew I had to do the "Rock Tunnel" again later in the game always went through it without Flash, and I did it so many times in the dark that I could determine based upon the talking some trainers near the exit do when you battle them, if I was already almost out of that cave or not xD First time I ever played Blue it took me 2 hrs or so to get through it without Flash! 'cause I didn't know which way to go ofcourse... xD

                                      Rock Tunnel. I hate tunnels and caves in pokemon games in general, which is part of why G/S/C are my favorite games.
