** 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.

* 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.

*** 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.
