* The names Red and Blue were selected because it was believed that these colors would better appeal to Americans due to the {{wp|Flag of the United States|United States flag}} being red, white, and blue.<ref>[ GAME FREAK | POCKEMON JOURNAL] (archive)</ref>
* The American staff in charge of localizing the games tried to change the {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} designs, but [[Tsunekazu Ishihara]] turned down the proposal.<ref>[ {{j|スペシャル対談/3}}]</ref>
* The blurb on the back of the boxes states that 139 different {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} can be obtained in each game without trading. This, however, includes all Pokémon that the {{player}} must choose between (i.e., both the {{p|Omanyte}} and {{p|Kabuto}} families are counted). Therefore, the true total of different Pokémon obtainable in one adventure without trading is 124, which excludes the two unchosen starter families, one Fossil family, two Eeveelutions, one of Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan, and the four Pokémon that only evolve when traded.
