    While I would say the Missingno glitch, which frightened me as a child to the point of me having something of aquaphobia for years after, I can't.

    Because, in my old copy of Blue, I never got that far thanks to Safari Zone. I'm serious; little kid me was never able to get to the old guy's dentures because he got lost every time. And never had his Pokemon learn Strength. And by proxy, never got the HM for Surf.

    Older me wishes little me had a strategy guide like he did for Pokemon Silver. >=(

    EDIT: Also. Lieutenant Surge's Gym. Darn those trashcans. Little kid me didn't know the mechanics of how the puzzle worked, and took forever to get to Surge.

        Brock's gym in Pokemon Yellow. I had to evolve Pikachu to level 25.

          - Rock Tunnel
          - The fact that there's only one Ghost line and one Dragon line
          - Your EXP points aren't visible
          - Most Pokemon have shallow movepools
          - Gym Leaders/Elite Four members using Pokemon from the same family line and Pokemon that aren't associated with the type they specialize

            I would say the most annoying thing to me was Rock Tunnel, Victory Road, and Lance at the end of the E4...took me almost a year to beat him and his many Dragonites.

              I always thought Vermilion's Gym was pretty darn frustrating. I also had trouble with the Seafoam Islands, I never found the exit of the Islands so I travelled from Pallet Town to Cinnabar instead xD

                  Same, until I realised as I grew up that all you need is a Mankey from Route 22! or a Nidoran that knows double kick.

                  the most annoying thing for me is still dem Zubats. and all the Voltorbs, Electrodes, Geodudes, Onyxes, Koffings and Weezings, etc that know explosion and selfdestruct. Seriously..

                      It didn't annoy me like being hard but it did annoy me as frustrating to see Blue have become the pokemon champion, even more amusing when you take his throne a few minutes after he earns it though xD

                        Lack of decent level up moves for a lot of Pokémon, hell for my most recent file of Blue, I had to abuse the Missingno. item glitch to get a bunch of copies of TM's so I could give my team decent moves. Also, the lack of being able to rematch trainers. It's hard beyond belief to get a whole team to Lv. 100 without abusing Rare Candies/glitches.

                        And Running Shoes would be nice, but, those weren't even thought up until two generations later. Technically you could say that about the rematching (I know Gold and Silver did have it, but it was a really inconvinent method).
                        Hacks I'm currently working on (at a super slow pace):

                        Chinpokomon Big/Small (would leave the titles, but apparently exceeded sig limit)

                          The Celadon city thing where you have to give the thirsty guard a drink. It took me two hours to figure it out.

                            That's about it. And the binding move mechanics sucked.

                            Apart from Silph Co. (which took me way too long), the most annoying part for me is there really wasn't all that much to do after you caught Mewtwo. If a game from the current gen lacked a post-game, everyone would be outraged, but even as a kid I was frustrated there was nothing left to do in Yellow, especially since I loved the game so much (no one to battle but the Elite Four again, no other places to travel to, etc.).

                              Rock Tunnel. I did not know of the existence of Flash when I was younger. ><

                              But if I can say one thing in general, those- "trapping" moves? Moves like Wrap and Fire Spin. Those.
                              I mean, they'd use it, and them you'd never move, and then it would end. BUT THEN they'd use it again, and just- argh.

                                    For me, I would have to say it would be forgetting flash and going through that damn cave.

                                      The thing that annoyed me the most was that the Pokemon's icons were to generalized. Like if I had a Bug Pokemon in my party, and I went to the Pokemon section, it would look like a Bee. (I know this may need some explaining so if you don't understand please reply).

                                          the only thing that really annoyed me in Pokemon RBYG was the fact that I had open the menu every time when I wanted to use an HM move, olther than that it was an outstanding game.

                                                The way of browsing Pokemon Stats. Like having to go out of the option and then select another Pokemon.

                                                The EXP ALL thing I hated so much! It lagged so badly...

                                                Also, in Yellow I hated that they took out the Pokemon and didn't give Blaine/Giovanni their right Anime Team-Cohorts as such!
