I would like to point out that Poliwag can be obtained fairly early in Gold/Silver as well. You can fish it up with the Old Rod on Route 30/31 (you can also get Tentacool and Goldeen early this way too; Goldeen in Dark Cave and Tentacool on Route 32). I don't think it is necessary to have separate entries for Poliwag at least.
EDIT: Well I guess the whole Water Stone issue might be a reason to have separate entries for Poliwag maybe...
But yeah I would also like to know how we deal with things like Teddiursa, who is absolutely amazing in Crystal (can be caught early in Dark Cave in the mornings, hits hard and will contribute against pretty much all the gyms, is a great candidate for TMs like the elemental punches and Headbutt, etc.) but is crappy in Gold/Silver. Do we have separate entries for things like this?
