* AdaptationalUgliness:
** Quite a few characters have had more simplistic designs than their game counterparts, their designs tweaked to a point where it's more unappealing, or simple design changes which give them a different look (different colorings, eyes not being fully colored in, etc.). Cilan for example is still very handsome but isn't quite as cute as in his game official art. Most commonly a lot of trainers are given younger, shorter looks to better fit against ten-year Ash as well, especially females such as Serena and Lillie.
** Ash himself is a retroactive version. He originally looked cuter than Red; however, in the ''[=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=]'' remakes, Red was given a more {{bishonen}} design. Ash is cute but not on the league of Red, especially since Red has since grown up into a tall, muscular man by ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' while Ash is [[NotAllowedToGrowUp stuck as a ten year old]].

* SillySpook: The first ghost-types to appear turned out to be pretty funny. They're fond of TexAvery-esque {{Eye Pop}}s and {{Wild Take}}s and clearly see their hauntings as pranking Ash & Pikachu, not attacking them.

** In a similar vein to Mega Evolutions, Z-moves are extremely powerful techniques that a Pokémon can preform if its trainer has the appropriate Z-crystal. Z-moves can very easily turn the tide of a battle if preformed correctly, but using the powered-up move leaves the Pokémon exhausted. Like Mega Evolution, the limits in the anime aren't the same as the game - The only limit on Z-moves appears to be how much energy the Pokémon has, while in the games Z-moves can only be used once per battle and require it to be holding a Z-Crystal.

* OhCrap: Lots of instances (Team Rocket are pretty prone to them, after all). In the episode "Pallet Party Panic", a Fearow that's been bullying the local Pidgey and Pidgeotto showcases great example when it realises that the other Pokemon, after a confidence boost from Pidgeot, have [[NotAfraidOfYouAnymore finally had enough.]]

* StoryBreakerPower: Many Pokémon have abilities that would quickly make the anime dull to watch if not unchecked.
** Most Legendary Pokémon are portrayed as very strong demigod-like beings in [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} the anime]]. Naturally, this means that Ash will never have the chance to actually capture and own them in the same way player characters can in the games. He can befriend them (and has done so many times, especially in the movies), and has beaten a few that do belong to other trainers, but actually capturing them would not only be disastrous for the world, but it would also make Ash almost invincible.
** Many of Ash's Pokémon from previous regions such as Charizard, or Sceptile. He could have easily won most of his gym battles in the new regions, and might give him a higher chance of winning in the Pokémon Leagues. But that would remove the need to catch and train newer Pokémon (which is kind of bad for a MerchandiseDriven Show).
** [[SuperMode Mega Evolution]]. In the games, Mega Evolution is powerful, but only a select few Pokémon benefit enough from it to be a GameBreaker. The mechanic as a whole is balanced out by the fact all Mega Evolved Pokémon (except Rayquaza, who was so powerful, Smogon had to [[UpToEleven ban it from their banlist]]) have to give up their held item to hold a Mega Stone. In the anime, where held items are nonexistent, Mega Evolutions are a free powerup, and the only Pokémon qualified to fight them are other Mega Evolved Pokémon, the above-mentoined Legendaries, and [[TheHero Ash's]] [[StrongAsTheyNeedToBe Pikachu.]]
** Ash-Greninja, the unique Mega Evolution-like transformation exclusive to Ash's Greninja. It provides a power boost on par with a Mega Evolution, perhaps even stronger, and allows Ash to see the battle from Greninja's POV, which is an immense tactical advantage. At first, Ash and Greninja still had some trouble with it and tended to [[PowerStrainBlackout pass out]] from fighting too hard. However, as their proficiency with the form improved, they were able to challenge [[WorldsBestWarrior Diantha]] to a close fight, and upon completing the forme, not even Wulfric's Mega Abomasnow, which had a ''massive'' Type Advantage, had much of a chance. The only real drawback is that Ash [[{{Synchronization}} shares Greninja's pain]], but even this becomes manageable after mastering the form. [[spoiler: By the very end of the XY anime series Ash [[PutOnABus releases Greninja]] so it can protect Kalos alongside Squishy and Z2. Thus Greninja isn't likely to be recalled for future league battles.]]
** In a similar vein to Mega Evolutions, Z-moves are extremely powerful techniques that a Pokémon can preform if its trainer has the appropriate Z-crystal. Z-moves can very easily turn the tide of a battle if preformed correctly, but using the powered-up move leaves the Pokémon exhausted.
