Here's one. In the TR Base, a rocket member mentions how at a different heist, Silver came in and totally destroyed them. Since the only heist before that was the Slowpoke well, what was this other heist that was going on?
The slowpoke well was a small operation, so this was probably another small one as well.
This one I don't think is really a loose end either, but a PC in the Unown Research building in the Ruins of Alph mentions a Professor Silkweed as the founder of the research centre. Perhaps foreshadowing the fifth generation's professor and their specialty?
Also before anyone mentions this, the foreigner Rocket at Cerulean isn't really a loose end. Sure he says he'd bring back Team Rocket in his home country, but the way he's portrayed, it just makes it seem like big talk from an unimportant character.

They're technically legendary Pokemon reveried by an ancient civilization and live in ruins all around Poke-Japan (with the exception of Hoenn, but that very well could change in Gen V). Not only that, but they have some connection to Arceus (as evidenced by the Sinjoh event) and their worshippers have a connection with the people of Sinnoh which hasn't been explored in detail yet.
Lastly, the opening scenes of both Crystal and HGSS hint at a relationship between one or all of the legendary beasts. What could this relationship be, if any?
The Unown are probably the most mysterious creatures in the Pokemon world right now and for over three generations, GF has deliberately refused to tell us much about them.

Platinum FC: 1591-7683-8872
Their worshipers also didn't just have a connection with the people of Sinnoh, they had worshipers in Sinnoh, particularly, Solaceon. There's also the connection in the Tanoby ruins and possibly that last cryptic message that appears in the Ruins of Alph after catching 26 Unown. The passage in particular says this:
They leave that part of the Unown Report open ended. But what? This is what makes me think that Gen V is actually set in the future beyond the current timeline. Not so far past in the future, but the events are not contemporary with any other games. As for remakes, they'd probably be like Colo/XD and be like "fuck continuity" and hope the fandom finally understands the concept of game play and story segregation when it comes to trading.Page 8
The characters found scratched on the floor in the small room are transcribed here in this report. OUR FRIENDS LOOK UP AND HEARTILY CONGRATULATE US We don't know what this could possibly mean yet.
The Researchers were saying they'll need to examine the ruins again, but...?

Absol also fits that.
I thinks Reds situation is odd
The plates had no real power in the game other than to allow for Celio's network to function properly and Gideon states specifically that it was just about the money.
Also, the original GS mentioned what I said in the end. They're whole purpose was to bring Giovanni back.
Also note: The Slowpoke tails do grow back, but I'm sure they'd starve before it grew back to its original length.

well i don't know much about the plates only what i've read about them.
and remember i said i haven't played in Jhoto since Gen2.
and how can slowpoke starve without their tails? are they some kind of food reserve or something?
Slowpoke fish for their food,hence starving. Though I doubt that happened once they came back to Azalea town since their citizens treat their slowpoke right.
What about Leaf? Does she even exist? She not even mentioned in HGSS.
Warning: very long post ahead
Speaking of loose ends, yesterday I was playing LeafGreen and I went to see if the tunelling dude on Kin Island had finally broken through to the patch of grass with Dunsparce on it, and he had. I spoke to him and, after giving me a Nugget he said "I don't have any Nuggets of Wisdom, so I guess that'll have to do!"
I then remembered that exact same phrase was uttered by a man in HGSS. When you go through Diglett's Cave and come out at the Pewter City entrance that first house you come to has an identical man who says that and gives you Nuggets. I also recall the dude on Kin Island saying [before breaking through] that after he was done prospecting in the cave he'd "buy a house in Kanto".
So clearly, the dude from the island cave [after striking rich] bought that house just outside Diglett's cave from the previous residents. But what happened to them and why include a Sevii Islands character in the remakes but no other?
On the topic of Red, I have a theory I just came up with:
After many months, since the beginning of FrLg, Leaf has beaten the E4 + Gary/blue [shortly after Red] and attained the johto badges. Unless she's more like Manga Leaf in which case she comes from johto, gets their badges, beats E4 and then gets Kanto badges. Oak then grants her access to Mt Silver. When she reaches the top she finds Red, a determined but friendly rival, who challenges her. An epic battle ensues and it looks to be a draw but Leaf manages to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Red, shocked, becomes enbittered by this loss and become obsessed with training severs all contact with the outside world and dies in one of the ways mentioned. Alternatively, the hermitage & obsession with training begins before Leaf meets him at Mt. Silver & during or after the fight loses his footing and slips into the abyss with all his pokémon, afterwhich leaf flees the land, never to return.
But thats just my take on things.
