* The [[SceneryPorn graphics are made of awesome]], especially in the towns, and the Pokemon League is just...Whoa!!

* The first time you use Mega Evolution and the lead up is pretty awesome. After battling your rival again and the third gym leader Korrina, you travel to the top of the tower where you meet [[spoiler: the latter, who's suddenly acting serious. She then has you use one of her Lucarios on a one-on-one Mega Evolution battle, where she is sporting a new character portrait. After the battle, the Lucario that fought with you refuses to leave and she allows it to stay at your side with the Megastone]].

** Also a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, even without [[spoiler:AZ's storyline]]. It was all Professor Sycamore's idea to congratulate you, and the parade is absolutely packed. It feels really nice to be that appreciated for a change.

** And Team Flare Boss, [[spoiler:Lysandre]]. Fought on the surface of the Sun. Have Pokémon games ever had battles in outer space?
*** [[Awesome/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Funny you should ask...]]

** [[spoiler:AZ and Floette's]] backstory scene. Those graphics were amazing.

* Taking down Team Flare, ''especially'' when you learn the scope of their plans. [[spoiler:Their ''huge, world-wide'' plans.]]

** Expanding on the lead up, learning about Mega Evolution was the mission Professor Sycamore gave you at the start. You've been seeing Korrina off and on throughout the early game, [[spoiler: with her two Lucario. And Lucario's liking for you was well established in his first appearance.]]
* The fact that the finale averts DudeWheresMyRespect with gusto is this. Usually, whenever the PlayerCharacter saves the region's ass from the Villainous Team, it is quickly forgotten. Not in Kalos. [[spoiler: You ''and'' the other four friends get the Pokemon equivalent of the medal of the ''Légion d'Honneur'' and are treated to a ''huge'' parade of people to celebrate their new Champion as well as the fact the five took down Team Flare]]. ''Bravo!''

* Another meta example: ''Pokémon X and Y'' selling over ''5,000,000'' units on their '''FIRST DAY''' in stores, setting the record for the highest opening day sales of any game on the Nintendo3DS, as well as the highest opening day sales of ''any'' ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' game to date as of October 14, 2013 (by comparison, ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', which were the previous record holders, had 7,000,000 copies sold over the course of a full week).

** The attention to detail is also nothing short of fantastic. For example, when you ride a bicycle, your tote bag will swing on your shoulder as you move. Or if you stand still for a while in Anistar City, your character will yawn and let out a little puff of breath, visible as a mist cloud. Or if you're a girl, and you're wearing a ponytail, it will sway as you walk or ride your bike. TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything, indeed!

** On the topic of Hordes, there are the hordes of 4 Zangoose/Durant and 1 Seviper/Heatmor (or vice versa) where the four will gang up on the one before turning their attention to you. You could let them go about their business or just defeat them all in a single stroke, but if you actually go out of your way [[VideoGameCaringPotential to save the Pokémon]] [[EscortMission that's being ganged up on]]? Now there's an awesome feeling.

*** Even better, some venues in Lumiose City allow you access specifically because you're the champion. Sushi High Roller, here I come!

* Sneasel is given a BadassArmFold as its default sprite when it's out during battle.
* Horde Battles. Taking out five Pokémon at once with a single Air Cutter or Dazzling Gleam is extremely satisfying, as is the quintupled EXP gain.

** A third meta-example. After three regions where a greater degree of artistic licences been applied to the regions, it's refreshing to see that there is a return to geographical realism which only ''Gold/Silver/Crystal'' surpasses - [[ShownTheirWork only this time, it is filled with explicit French cultural references]]. Say what you like about the other aspects, but [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhof when the French audience loves the games, you know Game Freak has done something right.]]
