Which parts of Gen I would you consider early installment weirdness?

- Bug was super effective against Poison (the opposite I can see being true, but for some reason it worked both ways in Gen 1).
- Ghost's type effectiveness being all out of whack (and having only one move that could potentially do super effective damage anyway).
- The "you have to change your box before you can catch new Pokemon" thing (yes, I know this was in Gen 2 also).
- I would cite the inability to tell what an attack did without using it and figuring it out yourself (even Gen 2 at least had the option to view the description after learning it), but I think a lot of early RPGs were like this, so it kind of gets a pass.
- Certain sprites were just plain funky. Upside-down Koffing and MS Paint spray tool Gastly come to mind.

If you actively hate Justin Bieber... then you don't know what "intended audience" means. Hate Twilight instead, it's far worse.

1. taking a turn to wake up
2. Wrap and similar attacks preventing you from attacking or doing anything
3. 90% accuracy Blizzard
4. Thrown pokeballs missing the target

Two of the main towns were directly linked to each other, and some lame excuse involving tea was concocted to keep you from going between the two.

i actually liked the idea of "rare" pokemon back then..... now rare Pokemon doesn't exist, thanks to breeding and Action Replay....

Can we please talk about how dumb this post is?


Game Shark, not Action Replay.

They had a legendary Pokemon producing offspring when later games established that legendaries can't breed, and had it reproduce by live birth when later games established that Pokemon lay eggs.
