The boundaries of what couldn't be changed were set to: Opposing trainers and Pokemon Base Stats/Abilities/Learnsets. Everything else was fair game. One exception is that Koga's Weezing is lowered to level 39 for exp management between Koga and Sabrina

If you're unfamiliar with gauntlets in from hacks, here's a quick guide to how they work in Garbage Green: 
  • Many routes, caves, and buildings trap you in and force you to fight many trainers
  • The vast majority of healing items are removed from the game and none are buyable before being able to challenge the Elite 4
  • All places with gauntlets are non-FLY-able, TELEPORT-able, and Escape Rope-able, so there are no ways to get out
  • Thus, managing your team's resources with HP and PP is extremely important
  • Many gauntlets are inaccessible after you leave with valuable items hidden behind optional trainers, and one gauntlet requires you get encounters mid-gauntlet

Encounters are designed to be as bad as possible for the upcoming split of the game and were not oppressively powerful for the previous boss fight. However, because FRLG trainers are very under-leveled and easy, for there to be sufficient encounter variety, many Pokemon will never evolve or have had their evolution delayed. The question that is asked for a Pokemon to be in the game was "Is Mudkip trash after you can get it in GarbageGreen?" Not "Is the Mudkip line trash?"
For that reason, a number of mid-tier pokemons are available late-game.

The game is optimized for the Nuzlocke challenge - Gauntlets will not work well if you're not nuzlocking as trainers don't reset when you wipe. 

List of Features

  • Edited encounters to have only Pokemon from the National Dex that are bad for FRLG. Every Route's Wild Pokemon has been changed.
  • Changed the starters to Slugma, Paras, and Goldeen
  • Changed static Pokemon encounters - many encounters that have overworld sprites are now Ditto
  • Restricted access to certain areas - linearized Kanto and provided many new NPCs to block off parts
  • Made trades an integral part of the resource management, trading good pokemon for bad pokemon holding items. You also always have an option to do the trades, because they ask for a pokemon from a location rather than a specific Pokemon.
  • Serious nerfs to PP of many moves to require more resource management. All Setup moves are now 1PP to make it not oppressively strong in boss fights
  • All infinitely purchasable TMs have been removed
  • The only healing items purchasable are Full Restores at Indigo Plateau
  • Rare Candies are sellable for $1 in the Pokemart
  • Poison out of battle has been disabled to make poison not an insta-wipe in gauntlets
  • EVs have been removed

Changed the opening cutscene:

  • Move and Ability changes necessary for game balance: Surf is now 20BP to prevent Water-types from being oppressively overpowered
  • Strength is nerfed to 30BP to not encourage running it every pokemon
  • TM04 Calm Mind has been changed to TM04 Magic Coat
  • Sketch can no longer Sketch Baton Pass, in line with competitive rules
  • Thief and Covet can no longer steal items, to make thiefing berries off of wild mons not an optimal play
  • Pickup only picks up useless Bluk Berries to force berry management
