    Training before the Pokemon League really annoys me. It is just so repetitive.

    Please note that I'm writing from my six year old perspective. So if I say something is hard, it's not hard for me anymore. So don't think I still struggle with any of these hard parts, lol.

    Mt. Moon and Rock Tunnel
    For some reason, I could never find my way through either caves. My heart would start racing whenever I saw the exit, too.

    Brock on Yellow
    I was six at the time and I haven't played Yellow since, and I didn't know that Mankey or Nidoran had a type advantage over rock. So I spent almost all of my time grinding south of Pewter until Pikachu knew Quick Attack. Once then, I'd pray for my battle against Brock. I don't remember ever getting past Lt. Surge, though.

    GARY MOTHER****ING OAK
    Although now it doesn't bother me, as I know when he appears at all times, but when I was younger, I wasn't entirely sure when or where. And usually my favourite thing to do was explore the area before doing what I was supposed to be doing. So naturally, Gary would come up when I least expected him, destroying my weakened team.

    The Silph Co.
    I've always hated the Team Rocket parts the most. It just drags on. Walk for a little bit, then fight a Rocket Grunt. And the puzzles were mindnumbingly difficult when I was six. Now they're easy, but repetitive. :/

    Sabrina and Lt. Surge's Gym
    I'm sure a lot of other people hate these gyms too. Pretty much any gym with a random puzzle seems to get on my nerves, but these two take the cake. It took me at least an hour to figure out how to open Lt. Surge's door, and even longer to get to Sabrina and fight her, then to get out.

    Surfing anywhere
    I've always detested surfing. It's not that it's hard to do, but... Wild TENTACOOL appeared! Over and over and over again.

    The relentlessly long routes that are packed with trainers
    Usually it seems really long when my team is weakened, though.

    One hit KOs
    Especially when you're at full life your opponent gets a critical hit.

    Trainers who use recovery items
    I know it's a valid strategy, but it still sucks, bringing a Pokémon down to it's knee. The feeling of having victory taken away for a few turns is annoying. "You're just postponing the inevitable, Mr. Oak!"

    Besides all the things on this thread, the time it took to walk ANYWHERE. Especially now that I'm used to using the Running Shoes, playing R/B/Y is even harder...

        For me, It would have to be the "Rock Tunnel" because it seemed more like a "Victory Road" type deal plus, right after I got out, I had to be greeted with creepy music.. Not the best experience.

              In like 2001 when I started playing, I didn't know anything where to go or what to do.

              So you can imagine me in Saffron Gym & Silph. Co D: It was a nightmare. My good Ol' brother helped me; basically, in Generation 1 it would have to be the Team Rocket in Saffron city that annoyed me, and in Generation 2 it has to be the Team Rocket in Goldenrod City v_v Although I do love TR :3

                Another thing that annoyed me - I had no idea how to save for weeks. I had to restart the game so many times and I'd leave my gameboy on so I didn't have to restart. At some point I figured out trying to cut the bush in Viridian City would save the game once, so I got to save at that point.

                Then I finally hit start and saw there was a save feature. After that everything was smooth sailing.

                    Safari Zone. That place still annoys the crap out of me. I'd be fine just going in, getting Surf and the Gold Teeth and going back out; it's catching all the damn Safari Zone-only Pokemon (which is far too many) that really pisses me off.

                        That rival battle in silph co.
                        I read a guide and memorized silph co's base, but the rival battle was just rediculous.
                        Even today it takes me ten minutes to defeat him

                          I never liked going through the Rock Tunnel. Back then, I never knew how to get Flash so I always ran around through that pitch-black tunnel and made it out 3 hours later.
                          At least, I now know the way by heart and don't need Flash anymore :D
                          However, I also found the foes extremely hard. Especially with Charmander. But I even had problems witch Squirtle and Bulbasaur so I usually hated going through it.

                            Rock Tunnel and Victory Road.

                              Nothing really~
                              Back in the day, I had a guide. A very odd guide, for how it was written (Not published by Nintendo), and that it had a cow-like Fakemon on the front with some strange girl.. I wonder if i could find that guide someone where on the internet. :/ But yeah, it taught me everything I need to know~ Wouldn't of gotten through Sliph Co. without it! XD

                              But I guess if something did annoy me, it was Sabrina's Gym. Annoying puzzle, plus her Pokemon were insanely strong.

                                Definitely Mt. Moon. I was young at the time, and Mt. Moon just seemed so complex that I was absolutely overjoyed when I found a map for it online.

                                    All the caves, safari zone, but also going through the whole of the Pokemon Tower right up to the Marowak without a Silph Scope, especially with the freaky music. I hated it then, but I kinda like it now. The GS remix is awesome. Oh, and that last guy in Viridian Forest thats impossible to avoid, and when I played it back then I didn't know about Antidote so half my Pokes' would be dead!

                                    When I first played through Red Version, I hated Mt. Moon. I don't know why I found it so difficult, but I lost against the Hiker standing in front of the correct ladder/staircase to move on, and then I was convinced there was no way through (it didn't occur to me to go back and try again). I actually restarted my initial save because of that, thinking that I was supposed to go to the Hall of Fame entrance and not wanting to backtrack.

                                    I also have always found the Hall of Fame entrance annoying. Sticking a large building that you can't get through right at the beginning of the game isn't a nice thing to do to young kids. Additionally, the first guard's dialogue about needing a badge was misleading when I first played through, as I thought that the entire path would open up as soon as I got the BoulderBadge (only to discover that I needed yet another badge after getting past the first guard...).

                                    I also disliked the Seafoam Islands. I saved in the middle and got stuck in them the first time I tried to go through them (didn't bring the right HM users), and attempted to stumble around in circles using up all of my PP until I Struggled myself to death. I fortunately found the exit in the meantime, but the whole experience was not fun. I supposed I learned two things from it, though: (1) never enter a cave without an Escape Rope and (2) never save in the middle of a cave unless you know how to get to the exit.

                                    Fortunately, none of these things are particularly annoying anymore, but as an eight-year-old or so, I found them very frustrating.
