* In terms of release dates, Generation II is the shortest generation in Japan, with exactly three years between the release of Gold and Silver and Ruby and Sapphire.
* Generation II leaves the least extra space for Pokémon in the {{pkmn|Storage System}} if [[Living Pokédex|one of every species is caught]]. Only {{tt|280|270 Pokémon in the Japanese versions due to differences in storage}} Pokémon may be obtained at once; there are 251 different Pokémon species available in this generation.
