* The animated trailer for ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' confirms that the villains aim for the trainers when attacking. Makes the battles against them more serious, sure, but there's one time where it unambiguously happens in-game.[[spoiler:When you happen on Ghetsis and Kyurem in the Giant Chasm, you're not challenged to a battle. No. He uses Kyurem to attempt to ''freeze you solid where you stand'', not even allowing you to let any of your own Pokemon out to defend yourself. Yes, Ghetsis ''forces'' Kyurem to [[CruelAndUnusualDeath '''KILL YOU''' with Kyurem's deadly signature move "Glaciate"]] while you just stand there, helpless to do anything. [[DarkestHour You're gonna die, and you can't do a thing about it...]] you just stand there, likely crying, [[HeroicBSOD paralyzed with fear,]] awaiting your inevitable death. Oh and that's not all. Ghetsis even states that he will freeze you first, likely to the point of near-death, but not quite since he's a butt, and while you're permanently frozen, you get to watch everyone and everything else freeze as well. He only freezes you first just so you can [[AndIMustScream watch everybody suffer and die while you are frozen forever, unable to scream, unable to cry, and unable to do anything about it.]] Unable to save your friends, family, anybody from Kyurem's icy wrath. Not to mention that you've worked so hard to defeat Ghetsis and he's about to kill you. Not defeat, using a Legendary Pokémon to actually [[KilledOffForReal end your life.]] That is the most sick, twisted, evil, demented, and all-around [[MoralEventHorizon CRUEL AS HECK]] action that any villain in Pokémon has ''ever'' done to somebody. It takes nothing short of a BigDamnHeroes moment from N to thwart the attack. The worst part is that according to N and Hugh, Kyurem sounded sad and was forced to do this ''against its own will''.]]
** Let's not forget that [[spoiler: Ghetsis was ''supposed'' to TakeOverTheWorld, but now he's about to kill everything on Earth, and likely make it uninhabitable even by himself. [[SarcasmMode Way to go, Ghetsis,]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero you're about to destroy the thing]] [[OhCrap you were trying to conquer.]] Idiot.]]

* The [[FeatheredFiend Spearows]] that went after Ash and Pikachu not once, but ''twice''.
** In the first time (the very first episode of the series), Ash meets a Spearow after mistaking it for a Pidgey and throwing a rock at it (Ash had been frustrated because he wasn't able to catch a Pidgey and Pikachu wasn't cooperating). The Spearow responded by attacking him and Pikachu before calling its family for reinforcements. Said family appeared to consist of ''[[ZergRush every single Spearow in the vicinity]]''. The psychotic birds proceeded to [[SuperPersistentPredator hunt Ash and Pikachu relentlessly throughout the route, with KILLING both of them apparently being their top priority above all else]]. Eventually, Ash is [[HeroicSacrifice more than willing to let them do whatever it is they plan on doing to him for Pikachu's safety]] and they aren't beaten until Pikachu shocks them with an attack so powerful it more or less drains the life out of him.
** The second time (in the episode with Pidgeotto's evolution), it turns out that while Ash was absent, the Spearow he hit with the rock evolved into a [[GiantFlyer much larger]] Fearow. And not only did it remember who Ash is, but its seething hatred for him appears to have gotten ''worse'', as it tries to kill him on sight. And it's still the alpha of its massive flock, not to mention having evidently bullied a mixed flock of Pidgeys and Pidgeottos ([[TheWorfEffect the latter normally fiercely territorial themselves]]) into submission. Think of it all from Ash's point of view--chased by a huge, vicious, predatory bird with sharp talons, a Swiss army knife for a beak and the intelligence required to ''hold a grudge'', as well as [[ZergRush the coordination to hunt in a massive flock]].

** And then, the final gym leader of Kanto: [[BigBad Giovanni]]. The fact the BigBad [[VillainWithGoodPublicity occupies a respected position as gym leader]] is bad enough, especially with him being the strongest one in Kanto. Then in the anime this is the period he has [[OlympusMons Mewtwo]] at his orders... Let's just say that Ash was lucky that Gary stole his chance to meet him in person.

* Pikcahu's voice in Pokemon Yellow. Ikue Ōtani's Pikachu voice is normally cute as heck, but the Game Boy's extremely strict hardware limitations distorted it into a [[HellIsThatNoise horrific, staticy mess]] that WILL make you scramble to turn the volume all the way down.

* At one point in ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger: Shadows of Almia'', you have to save the Cargo Ship from sinking with you, Barlow, and all the Pokémon on board. If you fail the TimedMission, all you get a single chilling line of text over a black screen. That's right; you can '''die''' in a ''Pokémon'' game.
--> The ship slid beneath the waves...

** Turns out the form in-game is effectively Zugarde's "50%" state. When it needs to it gathers cells from all across the region to eventually become a Titan-monster... thing. Based off the Nordic goddess ''Hel''. What you're seeing in your Pokedex is just Zygarde's chest!

** Arriving at this town for the first time at night can be unnerving, because there's no one outside, [[NothingIsScarier making the town seem emptier than it should be.]] No other towns in the game have anything like this. Fortunately, it turns out that [[spoiler:everyone developed the habit of staying indoors at night, because of the aforementioned legend]].

* The character "Imakuni?" (question mark included) in the Pokémon Trading Card Game for GameBoy is a pretty unnerving character who has scared quite a few kids, mostly because of his theme song, coupled with the lack of context: he's actually a cameo of a Japanese singer, and he is labeled as "Strange Lifeform Imakuni?" which indicates he is a some kind of space alien.

* Takeshi Shudo's novelizations depict the world of the anime as a CrapsackWorld, with Gym Leaders being fired if they lose three matches, 10-year-olds being legal adults and having to pay taxes, go to jail, or marry, and many, many fathers and grandfathers leaving their families only to get nowhere on their Pokémon journey.
