* ArtificialBrilliance: He is one of the very few [=NPCs=] in the series to make up for his type specialty's weaknesses by switching around his Pokémon in battles. Should a Grass-type shows up in front of Quagsire, it will be apswped for Gyarados (who is part Flying-type which neutralizes Grass attacks that could one shot Quagsire) and should an Electric-type shows up in front of Gyarados it will be switched out for Quagsire (who is part Ground-type which negates Electric attacks that could zap down Gyarados).

Added DiffLines:

* TeamMom: Sort of characterized as this, when she's not acting as the WakeUpCallBoss or AdventureArchaeologist.


Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: Being a performance artist, this kind of comes with the territory.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingShirtlessScene: Partial example--his outfit bares the entire right half of his chest.

* TheUnfavorite: In the 6 generations since it's been introduced, NONE of the Gym Leaders in the entire series have ever specialized in the Dark-type (unless one counts the Alolan Kahunas as Gym Leaders). Even the Steel and Fairy-types had Gym Leaders that specialised in them in their debut generations.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She finds it very blissful to feel the breeze while standing on top of one of Mauville's communication towers, much to the confusion of a woman down below who points her out to the player.



* DualBoss: Thus far the only Gym Leaders to engage you in a double battle for their respective Badge. Averted in Black 2 and White 2's World Tournament, in which they've entered the tournament separately. Notably, their teams play off to one another (Some Pokémon are shared, and those that aren't shared are often counterparts like Gallade and Gardevoir, Gothitelle and Reuniclus, ect).

* DualBoss: Thus far the only Gym Leaders to engage you in a double battle for their respective Badge. Outside of Emerald, they only use two Pokémon in their tag team in one of the few cases of Gym Leaders having less Pokémon than the one fought before them.

Notably, their teams play off to one another (Some Pokémon are shared, and those that aren't shared are often counterparts like Gallade and Gardevoir, Gothitelle and Reuniclus, ect).



* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: In an attempt to bribe them into helping out with research involving the correlation between spatial transportation and psychokinesis, an employee of the Mossdeep Space Center takes them to Lilycove Department Store to buy the twins a ''lot'' of dolls. Predictably, Liza and Tate are both way too distracted by their new toys to even think about the project.



* KiddieKid: It's best seen in the postgame of ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' when a Mossdeep Space Center employee takes them shopping for dolls in exchange for helping out with some research at the center. They're both absolutely enthralled with the amount of new toys they're getting and are completely oblivious to what they were trying to be recruited for, even the usually stoic-looking Tate.



* RetiredBadass: Wallace's mentor and the former Sootopolis Gym Leader. He returns to his previous position, taking Wallace's place in ''Emerald''. He seems to have gone back to this position in ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire''.

He seems to have gone back to this position in Steven's dialogue at the end of ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire''.Sapphire''[='s=] Delta Episode suggests that this will soon occur as he ponders about the concept of retiring as Hoenn's Champion and possibly getting Wallace to take over.


Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Woe betide you if you even ''consider'' putting Pastoria or the Great Marsh in danger.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: He's friendly towards all of the player characters he meets and cares deeply for the wellbeing of Pastoria, it's residents and the Great Marsh. His winnings from wrestling matches are stated to end up going towards charity.

* MakingASplash: Her Kingdra is part-Water, nullifying Dragon's common weakness to Ice (and it is unlikely for players to have another Dragon-type by that point). She also replaces one of her three Dragonairs with a Gyarados in the remakes.



* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Purple Hair, to further her connection to Ghost-types.

* UncattyResemblance: Skyla is compared to [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Sylveon]] ''right after its announcement''. Because of this said Pokémon is often speculated as a Flying-type Eeveelution before the new Fairy-type is revealed.

* StoneWall: In both normal and challenge modes, Marlon's team is generally defense-oriented. He uses scald often to inflict a burn to further reduce the damage you do to his Pokémon as well. His Carracosta subverts this, though, having the move Shell Smash, which lowers its Defenses but effectively doubles its Speed and offenses.

* JokeCharacter: His Kakuna and Metapod will not threaten anyone in Gen II. In Gen IV they at least serve a purpose as emergency switch-ins for Scyther.
