* The TrueFinalBoss of the second generation and its fourth-generation [[VideoGameRemake remakes]]. You've obtained sixteen badges, and defeated every Gym Leader within your reach. Your team of {{mons}} is fully-evolved and totally ready and pumped to kick some ass. You've literally defeated every other trainer in the two regions. Who could possibly be left to challenge you? [[ContinuityNod Who else but]] ''[[PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo Red, the protagonist of the previous game]]'', who after five generations still wields the highest-leveled Pokémon in the series. [[note]]His HGSS and GSC teams are the first and fourth-highest leveled trainers respectively, excluding Battle Frontier facilities but including Benga's Challenge Mode team from ''[=BW2=]'', who is tied for second with Barry from ''Platinum''.[[/note]] He's got some of the most famous and traditional Pokémon: the three fully evolved Kanto starters, Snorlax, Pikachu, and either Espeon or Lapras depending on version. As if all that wasn't enough, [[HeroicMime he doesn't even '' say'' anything as you fight him, speaking only in ellipses as a reference to his own silence in the original games.]] It was an incredible way to tie the first two generations together and bring everything full circle. It speaks volumes of how awesome this fight is when there is ''absolutely no dialogue or context involved'' and it ''still'' manages to feel epic based solely on the PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo. To make it even better, the battle theme (which he shares with Lance, the Pokemon League Champion) is a ''driving'' BossRemix of the classic theme song.

** [[spoiler:Xurkitree]] symbolizes a massive DifficultySpike in comparison to the last two: with an insane Special Attack stat (which is further boosted by its aura), Electric Terrain to further boost its attacks and keep you from stopping it with sleep, Power Whip to punish people that brought Ground types (because it was pretty obvious what type it is), and due to its Sp. Atk, possibly the most devastating Discharge in the game(which is boosted even further by Electric Terrain). This thing can OneHitKill nearly anything, even if it resists Discharge, which makes it all the more amazing to sic it on your opponents after the fight.

** Ghetsis and more specifically, his HYDREIGON. That meta-gaming jerk has a mid-50s Hydreigon [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard (the game mechanics have it evolving at 64)]], plus it's loaded down with SURF, FIRE BLAST, FOCUS BLAST, and... Dragon Pulse?... Anyway, so yeah. It'll just about oneshot ANYTHING it can line up a type weakness against. So your list of types to fight it with are slim. Best option is a PURE Fighting-type, as it is a Dark / Dragon. Barring that, a Water-type with Ice moves (Samurott and/or Jellicent) works, too.

* Also in ''Ultra'', [[spoiler: there's a BaitAndSwitch where you're led to believe you'll be battling Kukui again, but instead he steps aside and ''Hau'' challenges you instead. Unlike in the originals, he has a full team of 6--he swapped his Komala for a far more formidable Tauros(meaning he conquered his implied fear of it from earlier in the game) and added a ''[[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Noivern]]''--and instead of his starter holding the generic type-based Z-Crystal, it will be holding the species-exclusive one. His team is also pushing level ''70'', making him the strongest trainer in the game apart from you. His strategy might not be much to write home about compared to Kukui's Stealth Rocks+Whirlwind combo, but it's awesome to see how far Hau has come alongside you.]]

* The Pokémon League is a massive step up from the previous entries. It's not just that the Elite Four are [[spoiler: people you've met and battled throughout your journey]]. It's not just that [[spoiler:after defeating them, you get to face off against Professor Kukui himself]]. It's not just about the fantastic battle music. The biggest thing is that [[spoiler:by doing this, you are officially recognized as the first Alola League Champion. Kukui wasn't the champion, oh no; he was your first challenger for the title, and every time you enter the League, a new trainer shows up to try and take the title from you. For once in the series, '''you''' get to be the FinalBoss that other trainers aspire to overcome - which also means that the Champion's battle theme is ''your ThemeMusicPowerUp''.]] How does it feel? ''Pretty darn awesome.'' And [[spoiler: Professor Kukui's]] team is one of the first genuinelly decent teams an NPC has ever had, even setting up [[ThatOneAttack Stealth Rock]] right at the start to limit your switches.

* ''Ultra''[='=]s post-game arc features [[spoiler: '''every villanous team leader from every previous generation''' in a massive BossRush.

If you're playing Ultra Moon, they'll have Reshiram and Yvetal. Archie and Maxie, on the other hand, aren't version dependent--you fight both, but they're from the original Ruby and Sapphire, so sadly no Primal forms.[[/note]] Not epic enough? ''Giovanni can Mega-Evolve his Mewtwo.'']]

* In ''Ultra'', first you fight a fusion of Solgaleo/Lunala and Necrozma, in the form of Dusk Mane/Dawn Wings Necrozma. It's a strong enough foe, but then you ride through the Ultra Wormhole and make way to Ultra Megalopolis, where you fight [[spoiler:Ultra Necrozma]], an opponent that will make you rethink everything you ever thought about Cynthia and BW Ghetsis. This foe has offensive stats on par with Kyurem's fused forms, is very fast, has wide coverage, a signature move that bypasses abilities (meaning no Sturdy for you), and worst of all, the Totem Aura boosts all its stats, making it VERY difficult to defeat without the usage of Toxic stalling or something else. At the same time, it reeks of epicness.
