%%* ArmorPiercingSlap: He knows Pound.



%%* IronicEcho: Ash, Pikachu and Greninja with Dragons throughout Kalos.
* {{Irony}}: A Mirror Coat-ed Electro Ball doesn't take him out immediately and he seems to be fine taking Grass-Type attacks, but he doesn't seem to resist Fire-Type attacks that much.

* ImageSong: "[=DreamDream=]", the third XY ending, pops up as an insert song whenever something major happens with her or her Pokémon, e.g. Fennekin's evolution or Serena winning or performing in Showcases. Also "Candy Girl" [[spoiler:although unlike [=DreamDream=], this song is about her feelings for Ash]].

* NoSell: Since Fairy-Types are immune to Dragon-Type attacks, her Spritzee easily takes a Dragon Breath from Sawyers's Bagon without a scratch.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Has yet to take an active role in Team Flare's activities, letting his grunts, Scientists, Admins and [[UnwittingPawn Alain]] to do his dirty work. Even during the invasion of Lumiose City, it was the scientists and Z-2 (in 50% Forme) who are wreaking havoc, and Lysandre only stepped up to the plate when [[spoiler:Ash and Alain and their Pokémon decided to team up and face him.]]

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Was last shown being defeated and captured by Team Rocket... one scene before the [[spoiler: Megalith Zygare]] causes Lysandre labs to be reduced to rubble. Her survival is dependent on whether Team Rocket or anyone from Team Flare took her outside before that.

* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Noivern's power boost via evolution stands as [[DeusExMachina one of the most exaggerated]] in the anime, going from a fairly competent Noibat to [[CurbstompBattle overpowering Zapdos and Team Rocket's mech without so much as breaking a sweat]]. In later battles, Noivern is still strong, but to a far more reasonable level. It ultimately fainted in two of its three trainer battles due to type disadvantage and battle fatigue.

* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Ash. Her crush began when they met as kids and as she [[CharacterDevelopment matured as a character]] so did her feelings showing that she genuinely is in love with him and shows this by wearing the ribbon he gave her on her chest and staying by his side and supporting him through thick and thin. Her feelings for Ash are so strong than in her first argument with Ash she ran away from him crying after [[AnguishedDeclarationofLove she almost blurts out her feelings for him]] because she couldn't take seeing him so broken and depressed that [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness he was a completely different person]] from the guy she fell in love with.

* EpicFail: The [[{{Omake}} PokéTV]] segment focusing on Hawlucha ends with him practicing his blows on a punching bag as Noibat watches on. Hawlucha punches the bag so hard that it flies up, but just as he tries to stand proud, the bag comes flying back down, knocking him over.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Is the closest replacement to Brock than any other male companion. Being a Gym Leader, the older voice of reason to Ash with an {{adorkable}} side, the TeamChef, and is very knowledgeable.

* BreakTheCutie: {{Subverted|Trope}}. She breaks down into tears in front of her Pokémon the next day, early in the morning at a boardwalk, after losing the first round in her first Pokémon Showcase earlier in the episode. Fennekin and Pancham also held tears over their distraught Trainer and attempted to comfort her. However, she was crying because she was grateful for the opportunity to start her dream as a Performer despite the loss and renewed her resolve to become Kalos Queen with [[ImportantHaircut a change in style and wardrobe.]]

* TheOneGuy: The only male on Serena's team.



* {{Tomboy}}: Lampshaded by Serena when she asks her mother to pick a hat, only to choose the opposite because she knows Grace picks the "less cuter items". Tellingly, despite [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak having a feminine streak with keeping house and cooking]], Grace is evidently quite strong in character, and it's easy to see her younger self - an accomplished Rhyhorn Racer in her own right - as being a {{Hotblooded}} {{Tomboy}} back in the day. She's certainly more confrontational and (at times) sarcastic than previous mothers who appeared in the series.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: {{Downplayed}}. She gives off shades of this due to being a Fairy-Type specialist, speaking to her Pokémon in their language, and having a rather calm and elegantly cheerful personality.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: {{Defied}}. Although Malva was not fully aware of Lysandre's true plan, performed a HeelFaceTurn and ultimately helped save the world from destruction, she does not use any of them to escape punishment for being part of Team Flare. In fact, she states she'll turn herself to the authorities after disbanding Team Flare for good. Given all the above, however, it's unlikely she'll suffer any serious consequences.]]

* SitcomArchNemesis: Anytime he and Pancham are together, expect bickering.



* TwoGirlsAndAGuy: Pancham (male), Braixen and Sylveon (female)

to:

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Braixen and Pancham are all given ones as gifts from Serena (a red ribbon and CoolShades respectively), while Sylveon inherits a set of bow ties naturally as regular for her species.
* TheFashionista: All of them take to wearing accessories or dresses for performances.
* GlassCannon: They can supply a lot of damage but aren't very resistant. Combined with Serena's novice strategy level mentioned above, they tend to only fare well in battles they can win with a few quick attacks.
* TwoGirlsAndAGuy: Pancham (male), Braixen and Sylveon (female)(female).
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Both Braixen and Pancham are loyal and caring to Serena but moody and headstrong. Downplayed for Sylveon, who was good natured but shy and insociable as an Eevee.


Added DiffLines:

* SitcomArchNemesis: He and Chespin are nearly always bickering.

* FridgeBrilliance: When Serena first meets Eevee, she struggles to get close to her because Eevee is so shy. At first this just seems like a random character trait, until Eevee's evolution into Sylveon. In the games, Sylveon is a strong special attacker, but she's not especially fast. What's the best nature to speed up a special attacker? Timid.
