* GlassCannon: Camerupt can't take hits very well (not helped by a 2x weakness to Water) and is pretty slow, but hits decently hard.

* {{Nerf}}: Gen VI's weather mechanics made it so it can't stall with Ice Body forever under Snow Warning.



* {{Nerf}}: Two-Fold From Gen VII; the Soul Dew's 50% boost to their Special Attack and Special Defense has been removed. Now, it only boosts Dragon and Psychic type attacks used by Latios and Latias by 20%. On the plus side, the item is now able to be used online and in battle facilities.

* BroughtDownToBadass: Rayquaza halted Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre's fight by {{Nerf}}ing them to their regular forms. They're still a tough fight, being legendary Pokémon that embody the land and sea.

* SecretCharacter: Only available via special Nintendo Events and cannot be obtained via normal gameplay. Averted in ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'', where it's [[AscendedExtra one of the stars of Episode Delta]] and can be caught as normal. Note that because of this, it is no longer considered a "mythical" Pokémon and instead a standard legendary Pokémon, and it is now required to complete the National Dex.

* SingleSpecimenSpecies: The circumstances of Deoxys' origin as a mutated alien virus suggests that only one exists (at least on Earth) due to how unlikely they are to replicate (since, among other things, space is big. ''Really'' big). Naturally, [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} some]] [[Manga/PokemonAdventures continuities]] have ignored this.

* LastLousyPoint: You can complete the ORAS regional Pokédex (and even get a reward from Profesor Birch commemorating such an achievement), even if there's a glaring empty space between Rayquaza and Deoxys, one that should be occupied by Jirachi, who has [[PermanentlyMissableContent limited availability]].

* PermanentlyMissableContent: Outside of cheating and trading, Jirachi is only available via limited-time only events. You can, however, get one regardless of time period for [[RegionalBonus completing the PAL version of]] ''VideoGame/PokemonChannel'' and transferring it up (and unlike Manaphy, it's not one per disc).

* TheArtifact: ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'''s Pokédex entry for Deoxys still claims it was created via a laser-triggered mutation, even when the Delta Episode shows that it came to Earth already fully mutated on a meteorite.
* ArtificialHuman: Some of Deoxys' Dex bios claim that it came about when an alien virus was hit with a laser and mutated, suggesting outside influence was responsible.



* BizarreAlienBiology: Deoxys is what happens when an alien virus is struck with a laser and mutates into a fully-sentient humanoid. Somehow, this also created a crystal in its chest that serves as the Pokémon's brain.



* PermanentlyMissableContent: For a long time, it was only available via real life Nintendo events and would be unattainable after they were over outside of hacking. However, ''OR/AS'' ascends it to the spot of FinalBoss, allowing players to catch it normally.



* RecurringElement: Deoxys started the trend of having Event Legendaries that were fragile powerhouses with an intimidating disposition (like Mewtwo) rather than balanced Mew lookalikes, as well as that of legendaries having multiple formes.

* StarfishAlien: While there are some Pokémon that are theorized to be alien InUniverse, Deoxys is the only one downright proven to be. Well, an alien space virus.

* AscendedFanon: You get to fight it in space, which the developers based on one of the most well-known [[UrbanLegendOfZelda rumors]] from ''Ruby and Sapphire''.

* DiscOneNuke: In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', it's possible (if [[MetalSlime very difficult]]) to find Salamence several levels lower than normal as early as ''Route 3'' via a Bagon calling for help. Assuming you're able to catch it without being slaughtered, early game difficulty all but vanishes.

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Its stats change drastically as it evolves. It also learns different moves unavailable for other stages. Trapinch learns physical Ground moves (Dig, Fissure), and bitting or contact moves (Bite, Crunch, Superpower). Vibraba learns sound moves (Bug Buzz, Boomburst). Flygon learns Dragon moves (Dragon Claw, Dragon Dance, Dragon Rush).

* BeamSpam: Claydol learns a variety of beam-based moves like Psybeam, Ice Beam, Charge Beam, Signal Beam, and Hyper Beam -- notable for the fact that it learns Hyper Beam when it evolves at level ''36'', when most other Pokémon that learn it naturally don't get it until higher levels.



* PowerFloats: Both of them have the Levitate ability.

* PowerFloats: Both of them have the Levitate ability.ability, which allows them immune to Ground-type attack.



* StoneWall: Good defenses, with its Special Defense tied with Mr. Mime, which can be amplified by Cosmic Power. It also the highest Special Defense of all Ground-types.

to:

* StoneWall: Good defenses, with Claydol can take hits very well thanks to its good Defense and amazing Special Defense tied with Mr. Mime, which can be amplified by Cosmic Power. It also the highest Special Defense of all Ground-types.Defense. But it can't deal damage to its opponent very well as its offensive stats aren't good, and Claydol is very slow.



* WaveMotionGun: Claydol learns a variety of beam-based moves like Psybeam, Ice Beam, Charge Beam, Signal Beam, and Hyper Beam -- notable for the fact that it learns Hyper Beam when it evolves at level ''36'', when most other Pokémon that learn it naturally don't get it until much later.



* StoneWall: Practically a ''Diamond'' Wall against special attacks during a sandstorm. Rock-types get their special defense doubled during that sort of weather, and Cradily's base Special Defense is more than respectable. It naturally learns Stockpile and Amnesia to bulk up even more. And it can have ''[[HealingFactor Recover]]'' bred onto it, or be tutored Synthesis for a similar effect. Using Ingrain makes it even more so, giving it a constant HealingFactor and denying any attempts at using a SwitchOutMove on it, making it something of a PoorMansSubstitute for ''[[ExaggeratedTrope Shuckle]]''.

%%* FragileSpeedster: Anorith is pretty fast for a Rock-type, as it has the fifth highest Speed among Rock-types. Its Attack isn't half-bad for an unevolved Pokémon, too. But then again, it's an unevolved Pokémon, so its other stats aren't that great.
