** Additionally while the Kanto Gym Leaders could still be challenged in any order, Blue is now the only exception. He will only leave Cinnabar Island to return to his Gym once he has confirmed the player has the other seven Kanto Gym Badges.
* The [[Rage Candy Bar|RageCandyBar]] is now a [[Key Item]]. This is likely to prevent the player from trading it to {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, which does not have any item data for it.
* Similar to the event {{p|Shaymin}} and {{p|Regigigas}} in Platinum, two in-game events are unlocked through the use of {{pkmn2|event}}-exclusive Pokémon. The [[{{DL|List of Nintendo event Pokémon with in-game effects|Pikachu-colored Pichu]]}} unlocks an event near the [[Ilex Forest]] [[Ilex Forest shrine|shrine]] where the [[Spiky-eared Pichu]] can be obtained, and an event-exclusive {{p|Celebi}} unlocks an encounter with former [[Team Rocket]] boss and Viridian Gym Leader [[Giovanni]]. Giovanni was mentioned repeatedly in the original Generation II games but did not appear. These events effectively replace the [[GS Ball]] event formerly found in the Japanese version of {{game|Crystal}}.
* The [[Pokémon Storage System]], [[Bag]], [[party]] interface and the screen that pops up when pressing the ''Start'' or ''X'' buttons in the previous games all use the Nintendo DS's touch screen.
* [[Legendary Pokémon]] from other regions can be caught in the games. [[Hoenn]]'s legendaries, {{p|Kyogre}} and {{p|Groudon}}, return in HeartGold and SoulSilver, respectively, after Red has been defeated, and {{p|Rayquaza}} can be caught in both games if a Groudon from SoulSilver and a Kyogre from HeartGold are shown to Professor Oak. {{p|Latias}} (in HeartGold) or {{p|Latios}} (in SoulSilver) can be found roaming in [[Kanto]] later in the game after speaking to [[Steven Stone]]. The [[legendary birds]] can also be found in certain locations in Kanto while {{p|Mewtwo}} can be found at [[Cerulean Cave]].
