First Gen Dragonite sucks.

Pidgeot will suck as the games go on. Don't fall in love with it.

DON'T ABANDON VENUSAUR! It'll be awesome by 5th gen gives starters hidden abilities.

Meganium sucks. Stick with Totodile.

I think that's it.

"When you want to save your game, hit 'Start' and select 'save.'"

... What? I was six. I didn't read the manual and had no idea how to save my game until a week after I'd gotten the game.

"Spamming hydro pump and surf on your blastoise is cool. Training the rest of your team so they don't get slaughtered when blastoise bites it is even cooler. Also: bite sucks. Wait a generation."

A few more:
"Look, I know how much you love that mew, but don't over-train it. It WILL give you problems if you do."
"Save the master ball. Wobbuffet will handle entei pretty well."
"Beware... When the next pokemon games come out, expect a lot of a** ugly pokemon, there will be A LOT."
"Cloyster isn't a bad pokemon. In the next pokemon games, cloyster will become your second favorite pokemon.."
"Use those blk apricorns. They will come in handy for catching snorlax."
"Evolve your mudkip. What? Look, I don't care if you are addicted to internet memes, just evolve it."
"Fritz, leave this board and spend time with your only friends- Oreos."

Skip Sapphire and let your little sister have some fun

Don't nickname your pokemon in all lowercase because although better in the eyes, you will regret it later with a lvel 55 pidgeot nickname pidgey.

Stop your friend from trading away his level 100 Charizard for a level 6 caterpie nickname Zapdos.

Pawn that GameBoy, sell your cards, and DON'T GET INTO THAT ADDICTIVE SH-T!
...but I probably would not have listened. So, "You don't actually need to catch all of them" would be better advice. Play with your favorites and don't be such a completionist. ^_^
