In the Alola region, Rattata started to swarm the region to the point that the locals brought in Yungoos from another region to deal with the problem. To counteract their new predator, they altered their habits to become nocturnal creatures so that they can avoid Yungoos, who are mostly active during the day. In the process they became part Dark type. Alolan Rattata are lead by Alolan Raticate, who are much fatter than regular Raticate due to having a diet that is higher in calories and getting their Rattata subordinates to gather that food for them. Unlike their Kanto counterparts, Alolan Rattata and Raticate are extremely picky eaters, preferring to eat fresh and high-class foods.

** Raichu became an artifact pretty much as soon as Yellow Version came out towards the end of Gen I. After Pikachu solidified itself as not only the mascot, but having a reputation of never wanting to evolve, Raichu became little more than a bully to be upstaged by its unevolved form every 4 or 5 seasons in the anime. Notably, none of the Pikaclones in future generations even have the option of a 'Raichu' form, staying Pikachu-like forever. Competitively Pikachu can have better offense than Raichu if it has a Light Ball, and better defense if it has Eviolite, meaning Raichu only consistently out does it on Speed and HP. And Gen VI continued the non-evolving trend introducing Cosplay Pikachu instead of a potential "Mega Raichu." This ended after 19 years when ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' gave Raichu an Alola form with a brand-new Ability and one-of-a-kind Z-move, finally giving the evolved form some love. As an added bonus, regular Raichu also saw some serious use in the 2016 World VGC's, having carved a niche for himself in the format.
* BadassAdorable: Pikachu may be cute and isn't fully evolved, but almost every form of canon has given it a way to stand up to the "big guys". Raichu is also this trope, but with more emphasis on the "badass" aspect. Raichu's Alola Form is especially adorable and a ''Psychic type''.
* BreakoutCharacter: Pikachu originally meant to play second fiddle to Clefairy, it eventually became the series mascot.
* BodySled: Alolan Raichu uses its own tail as a surfboard, regular Raichu would [[CallBack surf on their tails in the Stadium games if they had evolved from a Surfing Pikachu.]]

* VocalEvolution: Charizard's cry is changed in Generation VI. All prior Generations had Charizard share it's cry with Rhyhorn. This cry is replaced with a much deeper version that sounds more like a hissing/rattling sound. Charizard's original cry, however, is revamped and reused for Mega Charizard Y.

** Pikachu with its Pikanium Z-Crystal is also this. Catastropika [[RuleOfCool looks cool]] and is the most damaging Z-Move in the game tied with Snorlax's Pulverizing Pancake (and it's the second most damaging move in the game period), but after one use Pikachu is dead weight due to its overall low stats.

In the [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Alola region]], frequent volcanic eruptions drove Sandshrew and Sandslash away from desert environments and into the snowy mountains. There they adapted to life in cold environments and became Ice/Steel types. They developed inflexible shells of steel-hard ice and their claws have become adapted to digging through snow and gripping to icy surfaces.

In Alola region, the volcanic environment they live in makes it hard for Diglett to find places to hide, so they developed metallic whiskers on top of their head to act as sensors so that Diglett doesn't have to expose itself aboveground. As it evolves into a Dugtrio, their whiskers grow into marvellous hair. Because of how beneficial Diglett and Dugtrio are in regards to agriculture, the latter is held in great regard as being the incarnation of the god of land.

* TheDreaded: If there's an outbreak of Tentacruel, any fish Pokémon around flee the scene immediately.


Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Tentacruel's Pokédex entries often speak of it having eighty tentacles, yet none of its sprites have ever had anywhere near that amount. ''Sun'' does try handwaving this by saying the longer a Tentacruel lives, the fewer it has, but the sprites still don't reflect that.
