** The [[rematch]] battle of all Gym Leaders, the Elite Four, and the {{pkmn|Champion}} after entering the [[Hall of Fame]], also return.
* [[Team Rocket]] returns, including [[Team Rocket trio|the trio]] from the {{pkmn|anime}} series, [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}}. Unlike in their game debut {{game|Yellow}}, Jessie and James engage the {{player}} in [[Double Battle]]s.
* The [[starter Pokémon]] have similar traits to the {{game|Yellow}}. In this case, starter {{p|Pikachu}} and {{p|Eevee}}, unlike ones found in the wild, prefer to be out of its [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}} and have no interest in [[evolution|evolving]].
** The starter Pikachu and Eevee also react differently near the hidden [[item]]s by wagging their own tail.
* A feature that allow the player to pet a Pokémon similarly to [[Pokémon-Amie]] and [[Pokémon Refresh]], can be called by pressing "Play with Pikachu/Eevee" on the [[menu]]. However, this feature is limited to the starter Pikachu and Eevee.
* The game features entirely new {{player|protagonists}}, {{ga|Chase}} and {{ga|Elaine}}, instead of {{ga|Red}}, and the role of {{ga|Blue}} is replaced with a new friendly [[rival]], {{ga|Trace}}.
* The player and their rival receive their [[Pokédex]] and first [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}s along with their [[starter Pokémon]] and no longer battle until returning to [[Professor Oak]] to deliver [[Parcel|his parcel]].
* The [[Team Rocket trio]] appears early at [[Viridian City]], where they replace the {{ka|old man}} as the obstacle keeping the player from progressing to {{rt|2|Kanto}}. They later can be found in the Pokémon Road in {{rt|17|Kanto}} after the disbandment of Team Rocket.
** Unlike in {{game|Yellow}}, {{MTR|Team Rocket's Meowth}} no longer battles.
