* After completing the game, some players may notice that there's an empty slot in the Rotom Pokédex (#165) between Marowak and Magby. That's because this unknown Pokémon happens to be Kangaskhan, who has a rare 1% encounter rate, or has to be called upon by Cubone through the SOS Battle mechanic, at Wela Volcano Park. Players can easily pass over this due to the rarity of getting Kangaskhan to appear, and no trainer is ever battled against who owns a Kangaskhan for the player to learn about its Wela Volcano Park location. The closest hint the game provides is that because Kangaskhan is sandwiched between Marowak and Magby in the Rotom dex, an educated guess can be made that the missing Pokémon will most likely appear along with Cubone and Magby at Wela Volcano Park.

* The SOS battle mechanics are further affected by Abilities in Generation VII:
** Intimidate and Unnerve increases the rate that Pokémon will call for help.
** Rather than the ''lead'' Pokémon (the one that inititates the start of the encounter) possessing the ability you are using to manipulate encounters, in SOS battles it is the ''active'' lead Pokémon (who is in battle right when the SOS calls are made) that will affect the encounters being generated with abilities like Synchronize, Compoundeyes, Cute Charm, Magnet Pull, and Static.

* Evolving Sneasel can be a bit difficult in ''Sun and Moon'', because there's no way to easily obtain the Razor Claw evolution item in the game apart from hoping to get one off of the wild Jangmo-o line in Vast Poni Canyon. And even then, not only do Jangmo-o only have a low 5% encounter rate, it's only a 5% chance that a Jangmo-o, or a SOS Battle Hakamo-o, will actually be holding a Razor Claw. The final Kommo-o stage has a 50% chance of holding a Razor Claw, but the player still has to rely on the SOS Battle to get it to appear.

* Then there's Mantyke, which has another unique evolution method... you have to evolve it by ''leveling it up with a Remoraid in your party''. Although the evolutionary line is blatantly associated with Remoraid, it's still a stretch because Slowpoke doesn't require Shellder in the party to evolve.

** Mareanie is perhaps the most annoying to catch of the fishing lot since it combines two of the examples mentioned in this section. Not only does the player have to continue fishing in this regard to come across a Corsola, the player then has to hope that it will finally call upon a Mareanie through the SOS mechanic.
