* Mewtwo. [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Generation I]]. You've gone through the Pokémon League, tackled Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, proved once and for all that you're better than [[TheRival Blue]], and now you're at the end of Cerulean Cave. There you see it before you: a single solitary Pokémon. You remember the journal entries from Cinnabar Mansion: the scientists finding Mew and cloning it to make Mewtwo, who proceeded to escape and destroy the laboratory/mansion. This is Mewtwo. Level 70. And you can catch it. The only way to ruin that fight is to use the Master Ball, in which case it's an AnticlimaxBoss.

* The post-game battles against the [[spoilers:Ultra Beasts]] are amazing, partially because they're under a permanent stat buff, go unnamed when first met and have monstrous stats in one or two regards. It's even better when you finally catch the things that have been giving you trouble for most of the game and [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge sic them on every Pokemon in the area.]]

** [[spoiler:Xurkitree]] symbolizes a massive DifficultySpike in comparison to the last 2: with an insane Special Attack stat (which is further boosted by its aura), Electric Terrain to further boost its attacks, 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. 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.

** All of these pale to the 5th one though: [[spoiler:Guzzlord.]] The thing has an insane amount of HP, good defenses, and a monumental Attack stat meaning it can tank everything you throw at it while dishing out near instant-death attacks like they're nothing. Combine this with its menacing appearance and you have a monster many RPGs would be begging to have as a FinalBoss.

* The climax of the game. After using the Sun/Moon Flute at the Altar of the Sunne/Moone, [[spoiler:Nebby of all things jumps out of Lillie's bag, flies up and ''evolves into the mascot legendary!'']] This is the first time an [[spoiler:evolving legendary has been introduced,]] and of course, you get to fight and capture them right after. Their battle is fairly easy, but after that buildup, it's still amazing.

** [[spoiler:Nihilego]] is especially great to battle since [[spoiler:it's responsible for the entire conflict in the game.]] While it had just sat in the background causing events to happen most of the time, most players will learn now that it's perfectly able to hold it's own in battle, with very high Sp. Atk and Sp. Def stats and a typing that's nearly impossible to guess just from looking, [[spoiler:Rock/Poison]].
** [[spoiler:Buzzwole or Pheromosa]] are also great to fight since they were in one of the trailers, the former being a MightyGlacier with extremely high physical Attack power, while the latter is a FragileSpeedster who outspeeds everything and has extreme Attack and Special Attack. They can and will punish the unprepared with a flurry of OneHitKill attacks, especially the latter who will be faster than anything you have.

** [[spoiler:Kartana and Celsteela.]] The former is a GlassCannon that can OneHitKill anything with its insane Attack stat, while the latter is a MightyGlacier with extreme defenses. Unlike [[spoiler:Buzzwole/Pheromosa,]] their battles vary a lot, meaning it's a totally different experience if you got Sun or Moon.

** The BonusBoss Arceus, found in one of the special missions, is just full of awesome. While he's not necessarily hard, Arceus will not hold back in flaunting its godlike powers, [[BeamSpam spamming all manner of laser beams that sweep the field in various patterns]], firing waves of yellow energy blasts, causing purple lasers to erupt from the ground, and even ''calling down a rain of meteors from above.''

These are some of the most visually-impressive attacks in the entire game, without a doubt.

* The final boss battle against [[spoiler:Aether President Lusamine.]] After you beat her once and chased her into [[spoiler:Ultra Space,]] she decides that she's had enough and [[spoiler:''freaking fuses with a Nihilego'' to become the EldritchAbomination known as the Mother Beast.]] She has a team of rather powerful Pokemon, which are [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard all under totem boosts that boost all their stats.]] Which makes it all the more awesome when you still manage to beat her.



* ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'': The battle against [[spoiler:Primal Dialga]] and the preceding cutscenes in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness]]'' were epic win. No arguments.

* Benga, Alder's grandson also from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' is a pretty awesome fight as well. You battle him at the top of the [[BonusDungeon Black Tower/White Treehollow]] which gives the battle with him a unique background. Getting to him is a long and arduous trek through extremely high leveled trainers with very limited chances to heal. When you finally do reach him, he comes flying at you with three extremely powerful Pokemon with good hold items that are even higher leveled than Iris'. One of them (depending on the version) is even a [[OlympusMons Latios or Latias]]! Finally, during the battle, him and his grandpa's [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic heroic and triumphant theme]] is blasting in the background, giving the fight an incredible feeling of grandeur.

grandeur. Oh, and if you defeat him? He rewards you with a ''shiny'' Dragon-type (Gible or Dratini depending on the version)!

* 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.
