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 Pokémon 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.

Mahogany Town

In the Generation II games, the Slowpoke Tail can be bought for PokémonDollar.png9800 in Just a Souvenir Shop prior to speaking to Lance at the Lake of Rage. Once Lance opens the secret entrance to the Team Rocket HQ, the salesman no longer sells anything, and once the player has cleared the HQ, the Slowpoke Tail is not a part of the new merchant's selection of buyable items. The tail isn't available for sale at the shop at any point during Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, even though it exists in the game's coding.
