* Once the player has become the {{pkmn|Champion}}, [[Master Trainer]]s will appear and can be found scattered throughout the [[Kanto]] [[region]]. They are considered the strongest {{pkmn|Trainer}}s for every Pokémon species in [[Generation I]] and can be spotted by the icon of the Pokémon they favor above their heads. In these battles, the player are only allowed to use one Pokémon which is the same species as them and any [[medicine]]s are prohibited.
 
====Alterations from other core series games====
====Returning features====
* The eight [[Gym Leader]]s of [[Kanto]] and their [[Badge]]s, as well as the [[Elite Four]] of the [[Indigo Plateau]], return.
** 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.
* Any {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} that the player has in their party can [[Walking Pokémon|follow them]] outside their [[Poké Ball]]s, as well as their action and reaction depending on the environment, like they did in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}. However, the Pokémon that walks outside of its Poké Ball can now be chosen out of the party.
** Certain Pokémon appear to be ridden in the certain locations instead of following the player. These Pokémon include {{p|Charizard}}, {{p|Persian}} (Kantonian form only), {{p|Machamp}}, {{p|Arcanine}}, {{p|Rapidash}}, {{p|Dodrio}}, {{p|Haunter}}, {{p|Onix}}, {{p|Rhyhorn}}, {{p|Rhydon}}, {{p|Kangaskhan}}, {{p|Starmie}}, {{p|Tauros}}, {{p|Gyarados}}, {{p|Lapras}}, {{p|Aerodactyl}}, {{p|Snorlax}}, and {{p|Dragonite}}.
*** Only Gyarados and Lapras cannot appear outside unless they are in the sea.
*** After entering the [[Hall of Fame]] for the first time, Charizard, Aerodactyl, and Dragonite can be ridden across the Kanto region; however they cannot enter the secluded places. This allows the player to encounter and catch the [[wild Pokémon]] in the sky.
* [[Mega Evolution]]s of {{cat|Generation I Pokémon}} ({{p|Venusaur}}, {{p|Charizard}}, {{p|Blastoise}}, {{p|Beedrill}}, {{p|Pidgeot}}, {{p|Alakazam}}, {{p|Slowbro}}, {{p|Gengar}}, {{p|Kangaskhan}}, {{p|Pinsir}}, {{p|Gyarados}}, {{p|Aerodactyl}}, and {{p|Mewtwo}}), as well as their corresponding [[Mega Stone]]s, return. As Pokémon are no longer able to [[held item|hold]] an item, Mega Stones can be activated in the [[Bag]] instead. Only Mega Stones belonging to [[Kanto]] starter Pokémon can be obtained prior entering the [[Hall of Fame]].
 
===Changes from from Generations I and III===
 
====Gameplay===
* The games only feature the {{cat|Generation I Pokémon|151 Pokémon}} of [[Generation I]], the new [[Mythical Pokémon]] Meltan and its evolution Melmetal. Players can also import the [[Regional variant#Alola|Alolan forms]] of these {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} from [[Pokémon GO]] or receive them from [[in-game trade]]s repeatedly.
* The games are no longer backwards compatible with any other main series games, unlike every other main series game released since {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}.
** Legendary Pokémon encountered this way are treated as regular wild Pokémon, so they do not have to be battled before being caught, can [[flee]], and are not guaranteed to have 3 perfect IVs.
