** On a meta level, episodes written by Creator/TakeshiShudo, most of which are from the first two seasons (and became increasingly rarer before he left during Johto), are noticeably more mature in tone, focusing on the darker aspects of the Pokémon universe. The clash in tone between these and the vast majority of episodes, which are far more lighthearted in tone, is quite jarring.

** Far later in the anime's life, Clemont joins the team. While most of his regular inventions tend to blow up as a running gag, he has managed to develop various facilities devoted to energy production in the Kalos region, including Kalos's power plant and Lumiose Tower.

Added DiffLines:

* GullibleLemmings: As often as the heroes outmatch Team Rocket, you can almost always expect them to fall hook, line and sinker for a booby trap or PaperThinDisguise beforehand. Played with for Meowth's HeelFaceMole stunts, since the heroes have become increasingly suspicious and prone to LampshadeHanging as they've continued. Even then though, he usually still manages to wheedle his way in eventually.


Added DiffLines:

* MookChivalry: Even bad guys such as Team Rocket tend to obey the turn based ethics of Pokemon matches and rarely use more than one Pokemon at once, only really ganging up on a character for an exceptional KickTheDog moment. Played with since the heroes [[StupidGood do this just as often]], only using fuller forces to wrap things up or to show [[BewareTheNiceOnes they've been truly pissed off]]. This is likely a DramaPreservingHandicap in their case, since the combined army of all three companions could likely trounce anyone with ease.

* {{Filler}}: Throughout every season, but more noticeable after Kanto. Justified on a meta-level by multiple concerns -- one, Filler allows the anime to lend the spotlight to the increasingly vast number of Pokemon; two, the games themselves tend to be so sparsely-plotted ([[StrictlyFormula some kid from some backwoods town goes on a journey to become Champion, fighting a rival and an evil organization along the way]]) that the anime would be at constant risk of OvertookTheGames if it ''[[TropesAreNotBad didn't]]'' employ Filler. ''Best Wishes'' moved far quicker than ''Diamond and Pearl'' due to the fact that it didn't need as much filler since there were two game sets (B/W and B2/W2) set in the same region instead of only one. Regardless, it ''still'' [[TropesAreNotGood drags on]] -- [[http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f228/filler-percentages-saga-saga-71342/ fifty percent of Ash's travels in Johto were filler.]]

* InterspeciesRomance: Tropius/Meganium, Golduck/Azumarill, Bulbasaur/Gloom etc. Breeding group is also not important (Lombre/Mawile; Lombre is in the Water 1 and Plant groups, while Mawile is in the Ground and Fairy. Marill/Elekid: a Water 1 and Ground and a No Eggs who evolves into one in the Humanshape). There are also some Human/Pokémon examples (Ash/Pikachu, Ash/Bayleef, Ash/Aipom, Ash/Latias, Cassandra/Meowth, Harley's Cacturn/Jessie). Most of the love is one sided and on the human/Pokémon it's always on the Pokémon's side, except for [[TooKinkyToTorture Gardenia and her fetish]].]

* RecurringExtra: Downplayed. The anime will on occasion recycle character designs, but for the myriad background characters, like [[https://www.pinterest.com/pin/435301120209113464/ this mother-daughter pair from the movies]]. Here's [[http://www.pokesho.com/mobu.html a slightly more comprehensive list]].

** Prior to that, the Advanced Generation seasons introduced digital ink and paint, while the Diamond and Pearl seasons upgraded the animation frame rate to 30 frames instead of 25. In general, each era also becomes increasingly crisper and more detailed.

* GoKartingWithBowser: Team Rocket interchange between trying to steal Pokemon and trying out legitimate contests and businesses on the side. Especially apparent in the Sinnoh era where they actually become much better at it than their usual villainous job.



** The series does have actual {{Plot Coupon}}s for Ash to actually quest for, namely he needs to acquire 8 gym badges from a region in order to compete in that region's Pokémon League. And during the Advanced Generation and Diamond and Pearl series, May and Dawn had to win 5 Contest Ribbons in order to compete in the region's Grand Festival.

* RedemptionPromotion: Team Rocket are generally {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s with the occasional NotSoHarmless moment. Whenever they fight for the side of good however, their competence completely skyrockets.
