* Type effectiveness:
** 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.
** Psychic types have three weaknesses - Bug, Ghost and Dark:
*** Dark-type is actually called ''Aku'' in Japanese, roughly meaning ''evil'', and is based around being a CombatPragmatist. Psychic-types being weak to them is possibly caused by being able to read their opponent's minds and being ''terrified'' of their intent. Being immune to Psychic attacks 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 millions of years out. Combine that with the physiology of an insect being so vastly different resulting in a [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm complete inability to understand what it's seeing.]] Bugs are also a common phobia.
*** Either that, or bugs are just [[TooDumbToFool too simple-minded to be affected by psychic attacks]].
*** Ghost-type are strong against Psychic-types because their mental powers leave a big, open front door to ''[[DemonicPossession possession]]''. Psychic ''humans'' in Pokémon games seem to get taken over rather easily by ghosts, so the same probably applies. Like bugs, ghosts are also a common fear.
*** If being afraid of ghosts is a common fear, that would put the the Ghost-type Pokemon's weakness to Dark-types under [[HorrifyingTheHorror a whole new light]].

** All this is thankfully [[AvertedTrope averted]] for Pokémon on the Virtual Console versions of the first three games, due to both being saved onto a 3DS's flash memory and being able to be sent off to Pokémon Bank and transferred to future games.

* Alteredmon. Full stop. Basically it's a crossover AU with ''WebComic/Heinoustuck'' created by [[https:8-BitDeer.tumblr.com 8-BitDeer]] on Tumblr which started off with a simple design of Heinous!Hau, who is basically fused with his Raichu and gained a glasgow grin and decaying parts, until said creator started building up on other characters' personalities before she starts creating more designs. She even has a RPing blog for H!Hau [[https://abominablehibiscus.tumblr.com here]] where she stores all plot-related information, but please [[NightmareFuel know what]] [[BodyHorror you're getting yourself into...]]

*** Oh, and just in case you played one of the other Pokemon Games before, [[spoiler: Ghetsis was VERY Possibly going to kill ALL of your previous characters. That's right: After helping Red/Gold/etc. Become champions/Stop Evil Organizations/do other stuff, Ghetsis will just come in and [[KillEmAll Kill every single of them]]. Good thing N came in]] However, it becomes NightmareRetardant when you take in account that they may be ridicously overpowered when [[spoiler: Ghetsis]] battles them, but still.

*** The eShop version of X & Y features saving to the SD card, which will make it trivial to keep your mons on fresh silicon in foreseeable perpetuity, granting them proper immortality.

** Although, you can save Pokemon forever with two games and a lot of internal batteries. Trade the Pokemon you care about over to another catridge in exchange for a bunch of freshly caught Level 2 Pidgey or something else you don't care about when the current one is about to die. Remove the old internal battery, massacring the Level 2 Pidgey or other trading fodder. Put in a new battery. Get to a point in the game where you can trade and afford a bunch of Pokeballs to catch trading fodder, and get the Pokemon back. Then trade all the Pokemon off the other cartridge in the same manner, replace the battery on the second cartridge, and trade them back. A couple years later, repeat the process. So it is possible to save Pokemon forever, but the save files themselves are doomed barring aforementioned SRAM dumps. Also, there is no reliable way to predict when a battery will go, which is unnerving. It's like standing in a room with a ticking time bomb, and you know it's a time bomb, but there's no clock on the face. Do you have 2 years or 2 seconds? You don't know.

** Turns out the form in-game is effectively Zygarde'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!

* The Zorua/Zoroark movie, when Kodai edits the movie clips out (where Suicune's surf may have killed sleeping Pokémon, and Entei's paws burning everything below it). What might have happened is [[NothingIsScarier even worse when left to the imagination.]]

* Internal Clock Battery failure in Generation II games and not knowing about it before hand: it resulted in the save file LostForever, and the game forever losing its ability to save.
** To a similar effect, clock failure in Gen 3. It's always the same time, the same day forever. It just goes on and on. Just like Film/GroundhogDay, only worse.
** Fortunately, there are ways to fix this, including replacing the battery, although some of these will erase your current data.
