I believe we were able to read signs in Ocarina of Time from the side, so we didn't bother to think it wouldn't work on TVs in the mon games. Those of us that tried after playing, at least. Or we found out it didn't work so we tried it on other games. That time of my life is a confusing jumble of past experiences.

I never got stuck in a Pokemon game with the exception of the well-known lighthouse exit in HG/SS. I was literally stuck and had to refer to Pokemon message boards. That never happened to me in the original Gold. I knew there was an exit but it didn't stand out. I thought it was light from a window.
Never had that problem myself. The only time I got stuck was in silver....
