* Salandit, encountered at Wela Volcano Park, knows Dragon Rage at a point in the game where most Pokémon have less than 80 HP. If you don't have a fairy-type Pokémon (which would have poor type matchup against Salandit) or a high-HP Pokémon like Snorlax on your team, Salandit can K.O. your team members in just two turns. If that doesn't seem bad enough to qualify as a Demonic Spider, remember that wild Salandit can cry for help. If that happens, you may end up fighting two Salandit at once, and if they both happen to use Dragon Rage on the same turn, then that two-turn K.O. becomes an instant one-turn K.O.
* Of all Pokémon, you wouldn't expect baby Pokémon like Magby to qualify as Demonic Spiders. However, the wild Magby at Wela Volcano Park love to spam two moves in particular: Fire Spin and Smokescreen. The result is that you're trapped, unable to run or switch out, while your own attacks repeatedly fail to connect (meanwhile, Magby knows the always-accurate Feint Attack). It only gets worse if the Magby cries for help and you're stuck with two Magby repeatedly using Smokescreen to make sure you can't get a single attack in while Fire Spin continues to whittle down your Pokémon's HP.

* Pelipper received a huge buff in this generation and went from a minor annoyance in Gen III to being a legitimately frustrating Pokemon to deal with in the wild, especially the ones at the end of Poni Island. Half the wild Pelipper you'll find in the wild now come with the Drizzle ability, which will automatically summon a rainstorm. The last four moves Pelipper learns, which it will have at that point, are absolutely deadly in the rain; it not only buffs its Hydro Pump, but gives its normally AwesomeButImpractical Hurricane attack perfect accuracy, which on top of that has a chance to confuse the target. If you don't hit it hard enough to kill it in one hit, it can heal itself with Roost, and then just for good measure it also knows Tailwind to double its speed stat.

* The good news about Durant is that they only appear in one dungeon. The bad news is that they ''utterly infest the place'', and it's TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon to boot. They're Bug/Steel which means they have just one weakness, nine resistances, and an immunity. They have quite a high Attack and Defense. MightyGlacier? Nope, these things are ''[[LightningBruiser quick]]''. And at their level they know powerful STAB moves. They would make for [[SixthRanger a good sixth team member if you have an incomplete team for the final boss fights]]... except that half of them have the Hustle ability, which reduces their accuracy to 80%. Needless to say, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the wild Durant will always hit you]], so you'll never know until you actually catch it. Fortunately, Black 2/White 2's Victory Road doesn't have them, thankfully.

* Yungoos hits stupidly hard for an early route {{Com Mon|s}} and is respectably fast as well. If it gets a Leer off, you pretty much have to switch because otherwise your current 'mon will likely get mauled by Tackle. It doesn't help that they tend to spawn at higher levels than other wild Pokémon: for example, most Pokémon on the first route spawn at level 3. Yungoos tends to spawn at 5.

** Its evolution, Gumshoos, isn't much better. On the earlier routes where it can be found, Gumshoos comes packing Mud-Slap to debuff your accuracy and Super Fang to indiscriminately tear through your team. Try and fight back? Gumshoos takes it on the chin and [=KOs=] you right back with Bide. It gets even more dangerous later on, as its high Attack stat means it will be tearing chunks out of your team with Thrash when it's not putting them to sleep with Yawn, and using a Ghost-type to NoSell Thrash tends to be answered by a Crunch to the face. Oh, and the SOS mechanic means you can - and often ''will'', given its semi-decent bulk - be fighting two at once.

** If you think you could get away with a Fire-type, some of them know the move Dig, and they will use it. You can still change to a Flying-type or Levitating Pokémon, but this alone can make the battle last nearly forever, especiaally if they have high speed. Especially annoying when you try to level grind before facing the Elite 4, as some of them can pull off this trick even when your level is 25 higher than theirs.

** Deino, for two reasons: [[ThatOneAttack Dragon Rage]] and evolution mechanics. Dragon Rage will most likely one- or two-shot an ally, and if that happens, Deino will evolve into Zweilous. In this game, when an enemy Pokémon evolves from defeating an ally, its level is boosted to the level that the Pokémon normally evolves at. What level does Deino evolve at? '''''50.''''' Your attacks won't be able to harm it, and even its weak attacks will demolish you several times over... at which it'll evolve into Hydreigon, which evolves at level '''''62'''''. You're dead when that happens unless you can use an Orb that petrifies it or puts it somewhere else. When Deino no longer learns Dragon Rage, you're safe. Until that happens, or if you're in the [[BrutalBonusLevel Slumbering Cave]]? Good luck.

** You're in the Cave of the Deep, and you see an item. [[SchmuckBait Naturally]], your incentive is to pick it up, right? WRONG. It's actually a Ditto. Said Ditto will then Transform into you, and then confuse your teammates. If you're not playing as Riolu, it'll most likely resist your [=STABs=]. Have fun!
