** While Kiawe, Mallow, Lana, and Sophocles are present, they are not Trial Captains and the concept of Trial Captains has seemingly done away with altogether, with both of Ash's trials thusfar being overseen by the Kahunas.

** Thus far, Nebby hasn't made an appearance in ''Sun/Moon'', despite their prominence in the games' plot, and Snowy seemingly fills Nebby's role as Lillie's companion Pokémon. Similarly, Gladion doesn't have Type: Null but has a Midnight Lycanroc as his ace Pokémon.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: It's a recurring point of the anime that Ash lose tournaments by at least two fights... whoever beats Ash in a tournament tends to lose during their next match. Ritchie lost after beating Ash in the Indigo League, Misty lost in the Whirl Cup after beating Ash, and Harrison lost in the Silver Conference finals after beating Ash.

The anime series based on the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games by Creator/{{Nintendo}} and the ''Pokemon'' books by Creator/{{Satoshi Tajiri}}. Given the success of the games, this series managed to make it to America as part of the marketing push, and, combined with the concurrent American airing of ''Manga/DragonBall'', helped keep the new wave of Western anime adaptations (which started after ''Franchise/PowerRangers'') going.

** The Advanced Generation was notorious for this, having far zanier plots in filler episodes, Meowth's boss fantasies becoming a OncePerEpisode thing, and Team Rocket's VillainDecay reaching its peak.

** While he oddly returned to being an IdiotHero during ''Best Wishes'', this trope was taken even farther in ''X & Y'', where he hardly ever showed idiocy and was consistently depicted as a more than competent trainer.
** While his depiction in ''Sun & Moon'' has so far been more comedic than in ''X & Y'', he's managed to retain his competence from the later.

* Here's one example that managed to draw ire from lawyers anyway: [[https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hamilton Hamilton]] from "Cream of the Croagunk Crop" was originally supposed to be one for Hiroshi from ''Manga/DokonjoGaeru''. Even his Japanese name was originally "Hiroki". However, it was deemed a bit too close to be a Lawyer Friendly Cameo and he was subsequently redesigned and renamed (to Takuya) for DVD release and international markets.

* ImagineSpot: Meowth's ''boss fantasies", where he outlines why Team Rocket should steal the Pokémon of the day and give it to Giovanni. Despite their ludicrous nature, they invariably convince Jessie & James. They were especially prominent during ''Advanced Generation'' and still occasionally feature to this day.

* InescapabaleNet: Pokémon caught inside Team Rocket's nets will only rarely manage to free themselves, despite them usually being pretty powerful in battle. Usually handwaved as being electric/whatever proof nets. The peak of this trope may be when Team Rocket captured Cresselia, a ''Legendary Pokemon'', with an ordinary net.
