** [[spoiler: His post-game team (after you beat a Chatellaine on a Super line) then takes it further. His team levels range from high seventies, with Gallade at 81. Furthermore, a large portion of them use sets actual competitors use. Wally could essentially pick a fight with the likes of ''Steven or Red''.]]

* The newly-revealed Delta Episode, which apparently involves [[spoiler:riding Rayquaza into space to fight off an asteroid, which is also Deoxys - and from the details revealed, there are links to the [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY war in Kalos]] from 3,000 years ago.]] This is awesome for two reasons:

** Thirdly, just how unexpected [[spoiler: Deoxys' appearance is.]]. All you know is that a meteor is on a crash course towards the planet and there's a dragon-user going around trying to harness Rayquaza's power to prevent it. [[spoiler: Then you catch Rayquaza yourself after it deems you worthy of facing him and not Zinnia and after defeating Zinnia you ride Mega Rayquaza into space and it pierces through the meteor. Threat cleared! But then you see that lone triangular object floating among the chunks moving in triangular patterns until it grows red and tentacles emerge behind it, with Deoxys' theme kicking in as very familar tentacles emerge from the object until it breaks and reveals the DNA Pokemon, finally obtainable outside of events and spin-offs, who then lunges at you, kickstarting the epic battle against a legend 10 levels higher than your newly adquired Rayquaza. No hints were ever given that Deoxys would ever appear, and that it was never catcheable in-game unless you got lucky with events only adds to the unexpected of the moment.]]

* The buildup to the battle with the version legendary. Like the originals, the battle is within the Cave of Origin, however, when you get to the place where you fought the cover legendary originally, you have to ''ride the version legendary's back'' with the help of a suit created by the version's villain team and the orb of the opposing version. Then, when you get to the place where the energy for Primal Reversion is, you jump off and watch as the legendary undergoes Primal Reversion and towers over you as it challenges you.

Then, when you get to the place deepest part of the cave- where the energy for Primal Reversion is, is- you jump off and watch as the legendary undergoes Primal Reversion and towers over you as it challenges you.you. The cutscene of the transformation alone is amazing.
** If that wasn't incredible enough, the [[AwesomeMusic music]] probably alone makes it a CrowningMomentofAwesome. The music even starts ''before'' the battle begins. During the transformation, you hear an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a8ZM7vxOcY energetic rock/orchestra remix of the Groudon/Kyogre battle from the original]]. Not only is it not just a simple updated version of the original track, the extra instruments truly convey the awesomeness of facing against a mighty beast from thousands of years ago, let alone one that pretty much nearly ended the world via floods/droughts, and isn't hesitant to do it again. After the transformation, the Primal-reverted Pokémon challenges you to a battle, to which the cutscene seamlessly goes into, with the music still playing.
*** What's even more awesome, is that parts of the song have the ''GBA MIDI track'' from the original Ruby and Sapphire running in the background. For those familiar with the original, it's a hell of a nostalgic treat, as well as an amazing callback to the originals.
*** All of that going on while you, the player, are fighting to save the ''world'' by taming the beast responsible for threatening the existence of every living thing in Hoenn. This is truly one of the greatest epic moments the series has to offer.

* The Mega Latis can be ridden as mounts, allowing you to fly across nearly all of Hoenn, including to the mysterious clouds shown in the region's official art and the various small islands dotted around the region. For what purpose, exactly? To find every non-event legendary Pokémon that wasn't in the original Ruby and Sapphire or X and Y.

** For reference, the Uber Tier wasn't even entirely real until then. It was basically "anything goes" given a name, for things that were too powerful for other tiers. Rayquaza BrokeTheRatingScale and topped ''that''.

* On a meta level, [[GameBreaker Mega Rayquaza]] is ''so'' powerful that Smogon wound up ''[[UpToEleven banning it from the uber tier.]]'' They had to create a new tier known as "Anything Goes" just to hold this legendary beast.

* Game Freak deciding to screw gender norms and have Brendan [[http://i.imgur.com/TZ4JUqc.png have a thing for plush Pokémon dolls]] (even if he is a bit embarassed by it) is a great reminder that not all boys are going to manly men and not all girls are going to be pink dresses. Emphasized further that ''Wally'' the one rival character from this game everyone had treated in the past as the [[NiceGuy sensitive guy]], ends up being far more {{Badass}} at the end than the {{Tsundere}} and a bit of dick rival, Brendan.

* The game's opening. [[MythologyGag It begins with the EXACT "Welcome to the World of Pokemon" sequence from the original GBA games]]... only for the camera to slowly pan out and reveal this to be an in-universe image on the player character's Pokenav... and then you get a sweeping view of the Hoenn countryside, complete with various Pokemon, as the moving truck travels to Littleroot. The best part though, is how the music transitions ''seamlessly'' from the original GBA tune to an orchestrated remix during the RevealShot.
* Previously in Contests, if you filled the audience's excitement meter, you'd simply get a large point bonus and be told that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the crowd is really excited]]. Now? Your Pokemon does a LimitBreak style move, some of which look ''really'' {{Badass}}. And if your Pokemon can Mega Evolve, it gets even better.

* The credits are really cool as well as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, showing you not only moments throughout your adventure but also what Pokemon you were using at that time, even during some more obscure moments. Then [[TheStinger after the credits]] [[spoiler: you and May/Brendan arrive at the pond where you first battled and they challenge you to one final battle, this time showing that they finally were able to obtain a Mega Evolution]].
