Added DiffLines:

* BalanceBuff: In three successive generations no less! The line gained Magic Guard, an incredible ability, in Gen IV, which amped their defensive capabilities greatly over the situational Cute Charm. In Gen V, Cleffa and Clefairy gained Friend Guard as an alternative ability alongside the introduction of Eviolite, allowing them to function as excellent [[SupportPartyMember Double and Triple]] battle partners, while Clefable gained Unaware as another defensive option. Lastly, in Gen VI, the {{Retcon}} of their typing to pure Fairy gave them valuable resistances and an outright immunity to Dragon, making them even better defensively.


Added DiffLines:

* MascotMook: Subverted. Clefairy was originally intended to be the mascot of the series, but due to Pikachu becoming a BreakoutCharacter, it took the limelight instead. Clefairy does still show up quite a bit, especially as a mascot of Kanto and Sinnoh, but is less prominent than others.

* OneHitKill: Alolan Vulpix can learn Sheer Cold, which knocks out everything but Ice-type Pokémon in one hit.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: While the English website says that Alolan Ninetales are referred to as "sacred emissaries", the Japanese website outright says they were referred to as the "messengers of God" (神の使い).

* ComMons: ''Every'' cave in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Alola is filled with Zubats and/or Golbats. Despite that, Crobat is actually a pretty good Pokémon, with stats on par with the evolved starters.

* RecurringElement: In ''Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum'', Psyducks serve as a Pokémon roadblock that requires a certain item to move them away. Oddly enough, they don't attack the player, instead choosing to flee the spot in peace.

Whenever you go surfing on the seas of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh, you're bound to encounter these Jellyfish Pokémon. [[ComMons Lots of them.]] Luckily for you, you could handle these guys in the same way one handles Zubats: Electric and Psychic moves will normally do the job.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Downplayed. You expect something with "fear" in its name, that's visually based off of a vulture, that also looks so intimidating, to act like Mandibuzz... but this mon's Dex entries describe it as mostly a fish-and-insect eater, who prefers to fly away from danger instead of fight.

* CriticalHitClass: In addition to having Sniper as a hidden ability which increases critical hit damage, Gen VII's introduction of Z-Crystals gave it access to Z-Tailwind, which gives it a big crit rate boost along with Tailwind's speed buff. Do not underestimate the ComMons.

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Beedrill doesn't have much power outside of its STAB-boosted Bug and Poison-type moves, but after Mega Evolving and getting Adaptability, there isn't much it ''needs'' besides them.



* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Mega Pidgeot's ability No Guard lets it use inaccurate attacks without fear of them missing... problem is, most moves Pidgeot lears are fully-accurate by default, leaving Hurricane and Heat Wave as the only powerful special moves it can take advantage of with No Guard. In spite of that, Pidgeot manages to have a fairly decent type coverage with only those two moves... as long as there are no Rock-type Pokémon nearby.

* Acrofatic: In spite of its rather stout build, Charizard is decently fast, having a base Speed stat of 100[[note]]Not counting mega evolutions, only 23 out of 150 Kanto Pokemon are at least as fast[[/note]]. In fact, Charizard has the same base Speed stats as its mega evolutions, which have a more aerodynamic or a more muscular build, respectively.

* TheDreaded: One of their standard abilities is Intimidate.



* MasterOfNone: Prior to Generation V, when it didn't have Sheer Force to give them that extra "oomph."

* LightningBruiser: Their Hidden Ability doubles their speed under Sandstorm for the regular forms, and in Hail for the Alolan.
* MightyGlacier: Sandslash is slow, but it has high Defense and good Attack. Their Alolan counterparts are even slower ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation In-universe, anyway]]) and heavier, but have better defences. And are half Ice type, to boot.

* MagicallyIneptFighter: The line has high Defense and decent Attack, but horrible Special Attack and below average Special Defense. The Alolan forms have slightly better Special Defense in exchange for [[DumpStat among the lowest Special Attack of any Pokémon]].
