* The receptionist of the Weather Institute. She notes that there is some "disturbance" on the second floor (i.e. ''a hostile takeover by Team Aqua/Magma''), and then says she's not even rattled, since she's a ''professional''. Not bad for an NPC.

** It gets better. Mega Rayquaza's ability, '''Delta Stream''', lessens its weaknesses as Delta Stream negates any super-effectiveness against Flying-types, thus taking its 4x weakness against Ice to only 2x and negating its Rock weakness altogether, making it much less easily taken out by Groudon or Kyogre.

** And most importantly, ''[[NoSell completely negates water]]'' (if Desolate Land is in effect) ''[[NoSell or fire]]'' (if Primordial Sea is in effect) ''type attacks used against Groudon or Kyogre''. Thought you could one-shot Primal Groudon with a [[KillItWithWater water type attack]] thanks to its [[ForMassiveDamage 4x weakness]]? '''[[SubvertedTrope NOPE]]'''.

** Take note of Groudon's situation in particular in this fight: it's completely surrounded by water, the weather is predominantly raining throughout the combat, and it's ''weak to water-type attacks'', yet it ''still'' manages to fight on even footing with Kyogre.

* For Red/Blue veterans of Mt.Moon, the ability Soundproof, which negates all sound-based moves, feels like all Christmasses come at once.

''WHISMUR's SOUNDPROOF blocked SUPERSONIC!''\\

*** Further reinforced in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment during the cut aways to different areas of Hoenn after you catch/defeat the respective legendary, where you see Wally at Ever Grande City, possibly about to enter Victory Road.

* 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 Pokémon does a LimitBreak style move, some of which look ''really'' {{Badass}}. And if your Pokémon can Mega Evolve, it gets even better.

* 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.

** [[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.]]
