* 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.

** Black and White take it down the TearJerker route instead, as at least if you lose to a Gym Leader (or at least, [[ThatOneBoss Elesa]]), you get a message about running to the nearest Pokemon centre while protecting your Pokemon from further harm, and IIRC it mentions it has begun [[GreyRainOfDepression raining]]. As something similar was used for the random encounters, it almost makes it sound like the Unovan Gym Leaders are as ruthless and savage as an angered wild Pokemon.

* Poison-types are weak to Psychics. The probable reason is, the psychic waves overload their senses and excretion of poison, making their bodies damage themselves.
** Also, Psychic types have three weaknesses: Bug, Ghost and Dark, because [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes those are three of the most common phobias]].
** Dark-types. While their tactics seem to be based largely around [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty playing dirty]], their immunity to Psychics has often been described in {{Fanon}} as a Dark-type being a sort of Psychic void -- throwing Psychic attacks at one is akin to dumping water down a drain ([[{{Jossed}} actual event in game play seem to say otherwise]])

Dark-type is actually called ''Aku'' in Japanese, roughly meaning ''evil'', and is based around being a sort CombatPragmatist. Psychic-types being weak to them is possibly caused by being able to read their opponent's minds and being ''terrified'' of Psychic void -- throwing their intent. Being immune to Psychic attacks at one could be seen as Psychic-type moves causing damage using the opponent's fear or guilt against them. Dark-types would have to be ''fearless sociopaths'' to be immune. Basically, it represents the fear of [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame being hunted by a crazed killer]], which Dark-types ''[[ProperlyParanoid are]]''. Alternatively, it could simply be the Psychic-type messing up their thought process making them slip up, while Dark-types are opportunistic and act on instinct rather than forethought.
*** Being weak to bugs likely has to do with how ''alien'' an insect's mind is, since the gap in mental evolution
is akin millions of years out. Combine that with the physiology of an insect being so vastly different resulting in a [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm complete inability to dumping water down understand what it's seeing.]] Bugs are also a drain ([[{{Jossed}} actual event common phobia.
*** Ghost-type are strong against Psychic-types because their mental powers leave a big, open front door to ''[[DemonicPossession possession]]''. Psychic ''humans''
in game play Pokémon games seem to say otherwise]])get taken over rather easily by ghosts, so the same probably applies. Like bugs, ghosts are also a common fear.
