Even if you think it's well known, give it a shot!

-A regular "Jynx" is impossible to get in Pokemon RBY without the aid of cheats or glitching. The only way to acquire one is through an in-game trade in Cerulean City. The Jynx you receive is named Lola.
-You can get a level 3 Electrode in RBY/FRLG through an in-game trade. A man in Cinnabar will ask for a Raichu. If you catch a level 3 Pikachu in Viridian Forest, evolve it with a Thunder Stone, and trade it with the man, you'll acquire a level 3 Electrode. At 27 levels under its normal evolution point, it's one of the most under-leveled Pokemon you can legitly get in the Pokemon series.

The Jynx's name is Lola in RB. It was Zynx in FRLG.

Same deal as Jynx but with Farfetch'd until Yellow. It's name? Dux.

Eevee seems to be native to the Unova region, as it has never been seen to be truly wild in any other gen. It appeared in a garden in D/P/PT, but the Pokemon who appeared there were imported by the mansions butlers to make his masters lies about what lives in his garden seem like the truth.
On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

Tracey replaced Brock during the Orange Islands because the animators thought Brock was racist. He came back eventually because no one cared.

The Nidorino that appears in Professor Oak's introduction in Red and Blue has the cry of a Nidorina

One of Parasect's Pokedex entries says its spores are used as medicine in China...which is impossible because China doesn't exist in the Pokemon world.
