** After being built up as Ash's rival for most of the season, Gary Oak is eliminated in the first round of Indigo League tournament. Being the main character's rival doesn't mean that he's automatically going to be Ash's final opponent, nor does it mean there aren't other trainers better than him.

* SingleSpecimenSpecies: Due to the [[LongRunner length]] of the anime, this is averted for some Legendary Pokémon as Ash has met different individuals of some species over the course of the anime. But is played straight with others, such as Dialga, Palkia and Giratina.

** Episode XY108 of the Kalos arc shows that Kalos has monarchs present in the form of Princess Allies of Parfum Palace and Lord Shabboneau of Shabboneau Castle, however there is no evidence of them holding any sort of governing power.

Other characters with royal titles have appeared plenty of times in the series but again, nothing about politics is mentioned.

* WhatsUpKingDude: Over the course of his adventures, Ash and his friends have met with dozens of characters who have royal titles. Just like other characters of the day, they're helped out or antagonize the cast but don't have much lasting impact on the series.

*** The original series is especially guilty of this, since the Pokémon) he doesn't carry in his party (Krabby/Kingler, Primeape, Muk and Tauros are OutOfFocus and barely get any development or screentime. The 30 Tauros he has caught in the Safari Zone are a notorious victim of this trope, since it makes it difficult to determine whether he either uses one of different ones in battle and all of them seem to have the same personality. Furthermore, Brock's and Misty's Pokémon, with the exception of Misty's Psyduck, are mostly put OutOfFocus and barely get development since the focus is on Ash's team. However, Misty's Starmie and Horsea are left behind later on to give her fewer options for her team while also giving her the opportunity to catch new Pokémon in later seasons. Later seasons would cut supporting character's teams from six to three at most. Team Rocket's Pokémon would also follow this restriction, with both Jessie and James having at most two each (apart from Wobbuffet, who is officially Jessie's Pokémon but is mostly a permanent member like Meowth).
*** The Johto journey makes it clear that is a bad idea for the series to start a new regional journey if Ash has too many Pokémon has on hand. Given the merchandise-driven nature of the series, Ash is required to catch new Pokémon and raise a full team of them (minus Pikachu). This results to Charizard and Squirtle being PutOnABus in a way that makes it a bit difficult to bring them back, and the recently caught Heracross stays at the lab to give room for Ash's new regional bird Noctowl (and it keeps him from having a member that is too strong). But this also leads to Bulbasaur being OutOfFocus for the majority of the journey since he's never replaced by his Johto counterpart, and when he does leave, not only doesn't Heracross come back, Ash gets a newly hatched Pokémon (Phanpy) which doesn't get enough screentime in the end. This time however, he doesn't catch more than six new Pokémon. When it comes to Misty's and Brock's Pokémon, only a selective few of them get some development.

*** With a set of ''six'' main characters on the good side, Ash's classmates have each a very small number of Pokémon on hand, not counting their Ride Pokémon. And thanks to the school setting, Ash's classmate don't all appear in every episode like his travel companions did.

* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny were the original TropeNamer. Both of them are an extremely extensive and very widespread family of pink haired nurses and blue haired police officers who look mostly identical save for small differences in their hats. After the ''Diamond and Pearl'' series, they started to deviate a bit in their general designs and what Pokémon they use but they're all just as dedicated to their jobs.

** ''Best Wishes'' had two male examples in the form of Don George and Porter. The Don Georges run faculties known as Battle Clubs where trainers battle and often hold tournaments. The Porters run a ferry service in the Decolore Islands. Neither have been seen since the ending of the ''Best Wishes'' Series though.

* CanonForeigner: Jessie, James and Officer Jenny are characters created specifically for the show.
* CanonImmigrant: Due to the anime playing a large part in the promotion of the games series, there was ''a lot'' of RecursiveAdaptation. For the main game series in particular, Ash's Pikachu and Team Rocket's Meowth were made as downloadable content for ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2''.

** The Pokémon Center Nurses were originally indistinct NPCs that treated your Pokémon. Later games would have them look more and more like Nurse Joy from the anime.



** 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.

Granted, Cresselia's main power is to grant good dreams, which is useless for escaping from a net.
