* In Generation V, you can get Regirock after deciphering an odd but fairly easy puzzle. You may think that you need to solve a puzzle of similar means to find the other two, but no. Registeel is in ''Black 2'' and Regice is in ''White 2''. You need to go to the title screen to your Unova Link settings, manually change the location of the Rock Chamber to either the Ice Chamber or Steel Chamber, and then go capture the mon. Then, you need to trade over the correct key using the Unova Link settings and two DS systems to get the other mon you don't have. MUCH easier than all that malarkey in Gen III, but nothing in the game mentions anything about Unova Link, besides the whole flashback thing.
* Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf in ''Black 2'' and ''White 2''. When you enter the Cave of Being after beating the game (which itself is difficult to find, considering one has to surf through an early-game river to reach an off beaten path, much like Generation IV's Fuego Ironworks), the three Pokemon will fly off so you can catch them. The problem is, you have no idea where they are, and they turn invisible until you reveal them. Bianca will show up at your house to hint at their locations (and even straight up tell you Azelf is on Route 23; surprisingly nice of her if you consider the other examples on this page), and they only reveal themselves after you stand in ONE very specific spot in the entire overworld. They will not be there prior to your arrival like other legendaries. The most frustrating of these to find is Azelf, who appears in a completely random spot on Route 23; at least Uxie and Mesprit appear in front of the Nacrene museum and in front of the stairs on Celestial Tower's roof respectively, so if you try to access either location you'll run into them eventually (although guessing they're waiting invisibly for you to find them there is still a long stretch).
** Bianca (who happens to be visiting your house after triggering the event) clues about where to find the Pokémon are a little roundabout though, such as talking about them being near what they embody (Azelf is Willpower, so near Victory Road, Uxie is Knowledge so Nacrene museum, and Mesprit is Emotion, so the Celestial Tower roof). However, knowing that Bianca tells you these things is a Guide Dang It in itself (or if you happen to speak to her after rematching the Elite Four.)

* In 'Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' there's a locked room in the Sea Mauville that tells you you're being watched when you enter, and reading through some files mentions the Odd Keystone (an item related to Spiritomb). You can encounter a Spiritomb by opening and closing your bag after reading the document about the Old Keystone, but the game never gives a hint about taking that course of action.

* A few Pokémon evolutions in general are guide dang it in the more recent generations and especially in the fourth one, with what things like certain stat values, time of day, gender or even location affecting Pokémon evolutions. Want a Glaceon? Well, if you have an Eevee, and happen to level it up near an icy rock on Route 217...

*** It's even worse in Gen V, where thanks to HGSS ditching out Mossy and Icy Rocks a few players may not have even realized the developers added them to Unova; then, they unwittingly level up their Eevee in Pinwheel Forest or the basement level of Twist Mountain. On top of that, thanks to the new evolution scene (which removed the silhouette flicker in favor of a vortex effect), it's hard to tell just WHAT it is your Pokémon is evolving into until it's already too late. Fortunately, this sets up a trend for future games to have their own Mossy and Icy rocks as well.

* In ''Black 2, White 2,'' getting Chansey is surprisingly kind of difficult. The player is given an egg that hatches into a Happiny. However, there's no simple way to get the Oval Stone that evolves it since the only ways to get one is to hope that one is randomly looted from a cave dust-cloud encounter, or grind through the entire White Treehallow / Black Tower post-game content until the final item store is unlocked that will allow the player to purchase an Oval Stone.

* Finding the post-game Mega Stones in ''X and Y'' is more complicated than necessary. First, the player must go to the Battle Maison and defeat a trainer at least once so the rival will appear at Kiloude City. After defeating the rival, the rival will inform the player that Sycamore is at Anistar City. After the player talks to Sycamore, the Mega Ring is upgraded and now the player can find all the remaining Mega Stones. The kicker? The player can only obtain these Mega Stones from 8 PM to 9 PM. Not only that, most of the Mega Stone's location makes no sense. Such as Mawilite is located at an area that most players have little to no reason to go back. ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' fixes this issue in that Mega Stones can be found at any time of day before the end of the game, although only a few of them will be available from the beginning - the rest turn up after you calm down Primal Kyogre/Groudon and complete Episode Delta.

Delta. Even then some of them can be found in counter-intuitive places, just like in ''X and Y''.



* Wonder why two or more same of the Pokemon will have different stats at the same level? That has to do with Individual Values.The existence of these stats is only vaguely alluded to in-game outside of a stats judge, and fully understanding the process and its various formulas by oneself without hacking and digging deep into the game files is likely an impossible task. Knowing these stats and understanding them is essential for breeding Pokémon for competitive battling. In fact, this is specifically an Internet Guide Dang It, as even Nintendo's official guides include only very vague information on [=IVs=].

* Many of the new Pokémon evolve using methods detailed in the sections of previous generations. But a completely new requirement is now involves ''Which version of the game you have''. Rockruff evolves at level 25 into Lycanroc, but what kind of Lycanroc you get depends on the version you're playing. You can only get Midday Lycanroc evolving Rockruff in ''Sun'' while doing the same in ''Moon'' will reveal Midnight Lycanroc. [[spoiler: This kind of restriction also applies to what Legendary Pokémon Cosmog [[MagikarpPower will eventually become]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* Magnetic-based evolutions. One would think that the power plant at the Blush Mountain would serve as the method to perform this kind of evolution, but it was actually located at the Vast Poni Canyon, which is filled with Rock-types and has no connection to electricity or magnetism at all. What's worse is that Vast Poni Canyon is a late-game area, meaning you have to wait for a long time to evolve your Magneton, Nosepass and Charjabug.

* Bagon in Generation III, especially in Ruby and Sapphire. It is found in the deepest room in Meteor Falls, an area of the game you most likely forgot about after going through it (unless you're playing Emerald in which case you return there to fight Steven.) Oh, and don't forget to bring a Pokemon with Surf and Waterfall, since they are both needed to progress to the other parts of the area. By the way, this new section of Meteor Falls has trainers in it before you can even reach the room. You can find a Dragon Fang in the small, mostly water-filled room where Bagon is, but other than that, there is no other indication that there is anything special in this room. Bagon has a 25% chance of appearing on the ground section of this area with the added possibility of encountering one beyond Level. 30 (the level in which it evolves to Shelgon), but it is well worth it, since it evolves into the pseudo-legendary Salamence.
* So it looks like there's a hole in your Hoenn Dex at No. 151. Turns out it's Chimecho. It can only be encountered in one place, the top of Mt. Pyre, which the player will probably only visit when they need to progress the story. And even when the player is in the area, the grass is out of the way. And even if the player goes to the grass, the chance of encountering a Chimecho is only 1%. So you've got a very rare non-legendary who no one in the game uses or seems to know about hiding in a very out-of-the-way area with no hints that it's there. And it's only good for completion purposes, as its stats are horrendous.

*** Slyveon requiring a Fairy-type move to evolve was the game's way of allowing an Eevee with high Affection to evolve into Espeon and Umbreon, who otherwise have a lower precedence - an Eevee that levels up with both max Happiness and max Affection and knowing a Fairy-type move will evolve into Sylveon (unless it happens to be in area with a Moss Rock or Ice Rock). Since there's no way to lower affection without trading, the Fairy-type move is required so that, if you accidentally max Eevee's Affection and still want an Espeon/Umbreon, you can forget the Fairy-type move, level up, and get them instead. Of course, this means that if you raise Eevee's affection and want an Espeon or Umbreon with either Charm of Baby-Doll eyes, you have to trade it and evolve it in a different game.

* Natures were introduced in Generation III. One might think nature doesnít affect anything at all, but it actually will raise a particular stat by 10% in exchange for lowering another stat. Unless the Pokemon has a Serious, Bashful, Hardy, Docile or Quirky Nature, which doesnít affect stats at all. From ''Heart Gold and Soul Silver'' onwards, thereís a red text for stats that increase and blue text for stats that decrease. But some might think itís the opposite. In Generation VI, the box system does have a search system that not only allows the player to search for a specific Nature of a Pokemon, but also details which stats are increased or decreased by Nature.

* Trying to figure out which Pokemon learn which moves can be frustrating because sometimes there seem to be no rules as to what moves a Pokemon can learn at all. Moves learned by leveling up are fairly predictable and tend to be within the Pokemon's own type. As for [=TMs=], Pokemon understandably can learn almost any TM move that is the same elemental type as they are. TM moves outside of a Pokemon's own typing is where it really gets confusing. They can be anywhere from reasonable (Weavile can learn Shadow Claw) to a bit of a stretch (Charizard can also learn Shadow Claw for some reason) to unreasonable (''Geodude'' can learn ''Flamethrower''? Emboar, a Fire/Fighting combo, can learn the '''Water'''-type move ''Scald''!!) and sometimes just impossible (Alakazam, who is tailless, can learn '''Iron Tail''', and Beheeyem can learn Steel Wing in Gen VI thanks to an oversight.). You can't know what moves someone might have without looking it up.
** In Generation VI, selecting Restore on any Pokemon in your party and switching over to the TM tab can show you what moves are compatible with your Pokemon.

Added DiffLines:

* Breeding a non-Alolan Pokemon in Generation VII. Requiring a Pokemon in their regular form sounds simple enough. However, the Pokemon must also hold an Everstone in order to work, otherwise, its baby will be in its Alolan Form.

* In order to fully evolve Sliggoo into Goodra, you have to reach level 50. Sounds simple, except it has to be ''raining in the overworld'' for it to evolve. The only hints we get are that Route 14 (the first time you encounter Goomy) is raining often and an Advance Tip at Route 17 that indicates one Pokemon evolves in the rain but never says which or it must be raining overworld. There's also the fact that Sliggoo can learn Rain Dance by leveling up, but that still isn't helpful, given that the rain created with this move won't appear in the overworld.

* Mega Evolutions have a good bit of this in certain aspects. One of the key items needed to achieve it is a "Mega Stone". Sounds simple, just get that Gyarados you have been using since learning it could go Mega, add stone and hit the Mega Evolve button. Now try to find the stone. Can't find it? That's because for only one hour a day, you are only able to find the stones ''in the post-game'' after trying out the Battle Maison, defeating Calem/Serena in Kiloude City and then talking to Sycamore in Anistar City. Just not knowing those details alone is frustrating, but you have an hour at most to find whatever Mega Stones you were hoping to obtain. ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' fixes this issue in that Mega Stones can be found at any time of day before the end of the game, although only a few of them will be available from the beginning - the rest turn up after you calm down Primal Kyogre/Groudon and complete Episode Delta.
** Regarding their locations, where can they be found? It turns out that the locations of most of them have ''nothing'' to do with the Pokémon they're used with. Are the Houndoomite and Manectite found in the route that Houndour or Electrike can be encountered? Nope, they're on the other side of Kalos. Mawilite isn't found in Glittering Cave where Mawile is normally found; rather, it's hiding in a place you have no reason to return to. Becomes even more misleading when Kangaskhan and Kangaskhanite are both found in said cave. Tyranitarite and Aggronite are only found in a dead-end of a Gym (but at least that makes retroactive sense considering the Gym's type specialty). Scizorite is located in a cave filled with mostly ice Pokemon, just behind that Abomasnow. It might be easier to name the Mega Stones that are in logical places.

* If you thought that the legendary golems were hard enough to find, ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire'' bring the trump card with Regigigas. After you get all three Regis, you need to go back to the Island Cave (the cave on Route 105 where you caught Regice) during daytime, nickname the Regice and have it hold an icy item (eg. Castelia Cone or Never-Melt Ice). ''Then'' you can battle Regigigas.

** Of particular mention are 'Weather SOS' encounter tables - in certain regions of the Alolan Islands like the Lush Jungle, for example, the kinds of pokémon that can be summoned by wild encounters will change when it's raining (or hailing, or sandstorming, or so on). This is the only way to encounter certain pokémon, like Goomy.

** Of particular mention are 'Weather SOS' encounter tables - in certain regions of the Alolan Islands like the Lush Jungle, for example, the kinds of pokémon that can be summoned by wild encounters will change when it's raining (or hailing, or sandstorming, or so on). This is the only way to encounter certain pokémon, like Goomy.

[[AC: Generation VII]]

* Many of the new Pokémon evolve using methods detailed in the sections of previous generations. But a completely new requirement is now involves ''Which version of the game you have''. Rockruff evolves at level 25 into Lycanroc, but what kind of Lycanroc you get depends on the version you're playing. You can only get Midday Lycanroc evolving Rockruff in ''Sun'' while doing the same in ''Moon'' will reveal Midnight Lycanroc. [[spoiler: This kind of restriction also applies to what Legendary Pokémon Cosmog [[MagikarpPower will eventually become]]]].
* A few of the Alolan variants require different methods of evolution from their regular counterparts. For example, both kinds of Rattata evolve at level 20, but Alolan Rattata also need it to be nighttime to evolve.
