*** Although this aversion is entirely engineered. It is long established that 1) the regular Pokedex have a voice synthesis engine, and 2) Professors have studied Rotoms for a long time since Black and White era. The Rotom Dex is simply the professors put the existing voice synthesis engine somewhere easily accessible by the Rotom inside, and trained the Rotom to use it. If the anime is anything to go by, a regular Rotom still speaks Pokemon Speak.

* ''ComicBook/Hitman'' has the demon Baytor, who is only capable of saying "I am Baytor!" Explained through the infernal hierarchy: those at the top are capable of full speech, those below them have to take up quirks like rhyming (such as Etrigan), and those below them are even more limited in speech, to the point that the lowest can't speak at all.

** Averted in "VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon" with the Dex Rotom. While he does [[VerbalTic bzzt tics (or end his sentences with 'Roto' in the anime)]], he speaks fluent English as well, mainly to describe the Pokémon in the dex, and direct trainers where to go.

** Who says it's restriced to only Pokémon? This is subverted by Mr. Sukizo in the anime. Even though he does speak, his favorite word is "remarkable" or "I like it" in the original Japanese version.

* While played straight in the anime and most other adaptations, the original ''Manga/PocketMonsters'' manga subverts this with most Pokémon capable of talking, with the exception of Red's Pikachu who plays it straight.
* Mostly {{averted|Trope}} in ''Manga/PokemonAdventures''; again with the exception of Red's Pikachu, Pika, which plays it straight in rare occasions. The English Translation by Viz occasionally add a few combat SFX that plays this straight, that are not present in the original Japanese language version. Makes sense, with the revelation that other existing countries speak other languages and call Pokémon different names.
* This is averted in the animated trailer for ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', where the Pokémon make regular animal sounds.
* ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' averts this, with it being a much closer counterpart to the games than the anime.
* Played straight in ''Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure''. Hareta's Piplup, for example, speaks in "Pip"'s, "Lup"'s, and "Piplup"'s like the Piplup in the anime.

** Pokemon which appear in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series generally carry over their ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' vocals; Greninja and Pikachu say their names, while larger ones such as Charizard or Zoroark [[RoarBeforeBeating simply roar.]]
** [[ZigzaggedTrope Zig-zagged]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonGo.'' Certain Pokemon, such as [[SeriesMascot Pikachu,]] say their names. Others imitate [[VoiceGrunting their electronic cries]] from early games. Still others have entirely new voices resembling natural animals.

* While the Hamburglar (one of the [[UsefulNotes/McDonalds "McDonaldLand"]] characters) doesn't constantly say his own name, he does constantly say his {{Cathphrase}}: "Robble robble!".
