** The ocean current is obviously CG when contrasted with the ocean surface during the ending. It also casts a shadow on anything under it that doesn't look quite natural.



* EnemyMine: The Team Rocket trio assists Ash when he attempts to grab Articuno's sphere, claiming that if the world were to come to an end, there'd be "no one left to steal from". However, it becomes clear that they've got more noble motives when they [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice]] themselves to help Lugia and Ash escape later, because it also makes it really hard to steal if you're dead. Luckily, though, the three survive the plunge.
* ExactWords: "Thus, the world will turn to Ash." This line from the prophecy is not referring to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, but rather, name-drops the one who would save the world.

* PainfulRhyme: The opening song goes for a half-rhyme by pairing "Pokémon" with "fun" and "one".

* BarrierWarrior: Lugia can create a shield around itself that is able to reflect the Legendary Birds' attacks back at them and keep Lawrence III's forcefield generators off of it long enough to use Aeroblast.

It gets a more mundane use whenever Lugia needs to [[FoeTossingCharge knock one of the birds aside]].

** Lugia enters to save the cast from the three birds

Added DiffLines:

* HostileWeather: Both the movie and the short feature this. In the movie, it's caused by the antagonist disrupting the Legendary Birds. In the short, it's just a random (though still dangerous) storm.


Added DiffLines:

* ItKindOfLooksLikeAFace: The giant tree that ''Pikachu's Rescue Adventure'' takes place in looks very vaguely like a smiley face. At the end, it looks more clearly face-like due to the storm clearing out some of the branches and a more distant shot immediately after gives it an actual smiley face.


Added DiffLines:

* TheLostWoods: ''Pikachu's Rescue Adventure'' takes place mostly in an unusually idyllic version of this.


Added DiffLines:

* PainfulRhyme: The opening song goes for a half-rhyme by pairing "Pokémon" with "fun" and "one".


Added DiffLines:

* RedBaron: Averted. Lawrence III thinks that the "beast of the sea" is Lugia. The prophecy was actually referring to the ocean current caused by the Legendary Birds being disrupted. That said, Lugia is [[WaveMotionGun far from unworthy]] of the title.

-->'''Jessie''': Prepare for more trouble, than you've ever seen!
-->'''James''': Make it double, we're on the big screen!
-->'''Ash''': ...I'll have to catch this on video.
** Also occurs at the end of the movie with Team Rocket and Slowking. Team Rocket is upset that nobody saw how good they were in helping Ash, and Slowking directs their attention to the audience, starting the "That's good/That's bad" gag below. Fans weren't happy about this, and DVD commentary explains that 4Kids didn't know how else to handle the scene.
* TheCameo: Brock makes one while Professor Ivy is contacting Professor Oak. Happens again in the end credits, when he photobombs himself into the movie...a little bit too late.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Similar to the [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie previous film]], the movie breaks down one of Pokémon's core tenets. This time, it's "GottaCatchThemAll"; and boy, does he ''[[NightmareFuel gotta]].''

* FireIceLightning: The three legendary birds. Moltres represents fire, Articuno represents ice, and Zapdos represents lightning.



* [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend He Is Not My Boyfriend]]: Misty about Ash throughout the movie. At one point Jessie and James about each other.



* LostInTranslation:
** The Swedish dub, which is a translation of the English dub, has the prophecy say that the world will become ''aska'', which means "ash." Misty figures out that Ash's the one the prophecy is talking about, since ''aska'' means "Ash" in English. But since the Swedish language makes it impossible to keep the double-entendre where "turn to" can mean "become" as well as "turn for help to," Misty's reasoning feels like InsaneTrollLogic. The prophecy mentions a word that means "ash" in another language, so therefore Mr. Ketchum is supposed to save the world? That's reaching at straws.
** This translation is also used in the Norwegian dub.

* NeverSayDie: {{Averted}} completely. Team Rocket say it during their HeroicSacrifice (even though, ultimately, they live). And Misty is begging Ash to breathe while resuscitating him after he and Pikachu fell off Lugia.

** Possibly the legendary birds too--they're causing untold destruction all over the place, but mostly because someone woke them up and royally ticked them off.

-->'''Jessie''': Listen to me, kid: when you get involved with the opposite sex, you're only asking for trouble!
-->'''James''': Yes, and that's the kind of trouble...I stay out of.
-->'''Meowth''': Youse two don't need the opposite sex cause youse got each otta. *laughs like a maniac*
** Oddly (considering that the Team Rocket trio's lines get re-written most of the time), these lines are fairly similar to the Japanese dialogue, with Meowth originally saying "Whatever you say. You guys get love-love all the time!"

** When Lugia first appears, the three Titans shoot it down quickly and then proceed to seal up the hole that Lugia came out of. As [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] said in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMYBJ_lwPGs review of the movie]], "I think you got him!"

* ChristmasCake: In the Japanese version, Jessie claims that Ash and Misty (who are 10) are about ten years too early for romance. James then goes on to say that he and Jessie are five years too late.



* YoungerThanTheyLook: In the Japanese version, James claims that he and Jessie are only five years older than Ash and Misty...who are ''ten''.

* CPRCleanPrettyReliable: Ash ends up drowning after he and Pikachu fall off Lugia before the film's climax. Misty ends up having to resuscitate him, though only the dub is explicit that he stopped breathing. Although he revives quickly, he has to be helped up the mountain to bring the last MacGuffin.
