The only unlimited supply of money was the E4, so before you finished the game, your money was finite


Pay Day was a TM. And that's just resource management

The special stat, obviously, but for things that other people haven't mentioned, there's the fact that so many pokemon were poison type. Unforgettable HM's were stupid too and were obviously something that would get changed in future editions, but not especially wierd.

Species as gender. Specifically, the listing of NidoranF and Nidoran M as separate species, since gender wasn't implemented until Gen2.

No shinies.

These two, too. Ah, yes, there's the Silph scope as well. You don't get a lot of ghosts acting like Gen1 ghosts did anymore.

All above is completely true and accurate, unless it isn't.

Haha

I'm pretty sure cheating was actively encouraged in the days of gen1.

Lavender town, kangaskhan baby shenanigans, certain safari zone pokemon being near unobtainable.

The best thing I found back then was a way to catch the Safari Zone pokes in regular pokeballs - altering the Missingno trick to catch Scyther, Tauros and Chansey with my Masterballs...

The early installment weirdness I found was any poison type being able to pwn grass/poisons due to them always trying to Poisonpowder your poke
