Things they didn't have in the Colour and Metal Colour games(R/B/Y/G & G/S/C)

Remember in the old games they didn't have much stuff in battle?

Like backgrounds, it was just plain white and the icons (like this ;136;) where from the older games (like Pikachu Land).

Do any of you know more?

Well, if you remeber, between R/B/Y and G/S/C, there was a split. It turned the Special stat into the Special Attack/Defense stats.

I remember Special as one stat in R/B/Y. It made Exxegutor totally indespensible. But yeah, every Pokemons overworld/party sprite was from a stock of 4 or so sprites. It was funny to approach the legendary birds and have their overworld sprites resemble a little robin or something

I liked the sprites in GSC because, if I remember correctly, they represented (mostly) the breeding groups, so it was easy to remember who bred with who.
 
Abilties and natures were not there, and physical and special splits, but those were obvious.
I remembered trying to use my Wobbufet's "Shadow Tag" to catch an Ursaring in Crystal.

Yeah, Mewtwo's was funny too. It had the same overworld sprite as Cubone, Nidoran, etc.
 
They didn't have running shoes. You had to walk until you finally managed to get a bike. Drove me nuts.
One of my friends was playing my Crystal and he tried running. Well obviously he couldn't, so he said: "You suck! You can't even run yet?"
 
In G/R/B/Y all your items were in the same bag slot.
You couldn't fish while surfing.
In G/R/B/Y you couldn't do a rematch exept for the E4

In red/blue Lickitung couldn't learn lick xD
And there was only one dragon type attack.

In RBY, the only Ghost attacks were Lick, ConfuseRay, and NightShade. And all set-damage attacks broke through immunities. I think Bug was weak to Poison, Psychic was immune to Ghost, Grass was not resistant to Ground, possibly more...

Contests. And the graphics were better of course. And also the berries were given real names, instead of them named after the effects that they cure.

I remember now! When you were surfing, you turn into a Pokemon instead of in the R/S/E and FR/LG series were you, the trainer, are actually riding on a pokemon. In R/B/Y, you turn into Seel and in G/S/C you turn into Lapras.

Right?
