In FRLG, the S.S. Anne is eventually replaced with the Seagallop. Is it then possible for the player to permanently miss HM01 Cut, if they had traded a Cut user over (such as to obtain the Lava Cookie)?

This is a list of items in the Pokémon games that can be permanently missed.

This page does not include items that are missed by choosing another item (such as mutually exclusive Fossils), items missable due to exploiting glitches, nor event items. Furthermore, items that can no longer be obtained after the internal battery of Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald runs dry are also excluded.

Professor Oak's Laboratory

Only in Generation I games, five Poké Balls can be obtained from Professor Oak after defeating the rival on Route 22 if the player has bought no Poké Balls and has added no caught data to the Pokédex aside from starter Pokémon.
