* It was long believed that Cinnabar Island once was the tip of a {{wp|stratovolcano}} or a {{wp|shield volcano}} since no mountain was visible on the island for the first three [[generation]]s. This was changed in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} where a mountain stratovolcano is actually there and can be reached by using {{m|Rock Climb}}, indicating that lack of diverse scenery in the past games was the reason for no mountain being there. However, all map artworks throughout the generations have shown the volcano to be there.
* Cinnabar Island has many glitches associated with it in the [[Generation I]] games, such as the [[old man glitch]], due to programming oversights on the island's coast. There is also {{DL|List of glitches in Generation I|Man on roof|a trick to see a man on the roof}} of the [[Cinnabar Gym|Gym]]. However, both of these glitches were fixed in some regional versions.
* Cinnabar Island and [[Vermilion City]] are named after the same color in the English versions of the Pokémon games but not in the Japanese versions, since ''{{wp|crimson''}} ({{j|{{jwp|紅蓮|グレン}}}} ''guren'', "crimson lotus") refers to a shade of red while ''{{wp|vermilion''}} ({{j|{{jwp|朽葉|クチバ}}}} ''kuchiba'', "decayed leaves") refers to a shade of orange. Vermilion{{wp|Cinnabar}} is an orange-red pigment,mineral producedthat fromproduces the orange-red mineralpigment cinnabarvermilion. This explains why Cinnabar Island is colored red while Vermilion City is colored orange in the [[Generation I]] games when played with the [[Super Game Boy]] enhancements enabled on a compatible system or with the [[Game Boy Color]] enhancements available in the international releases of {{game|Yellow}} (including the [[Virtual Console]] release).
* It is the southernmost location in both [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]] that the player can {{m|Fly}} to.
