**Normal 'mons are bad enough, but add on top of that two legendary pokemon also believing you to be the source of the trouble while having no knowledge of what Gengar said and that's based on flimsy evidence at best (the volcano is warmer than usual/the forest is melting in areas that haven't melted before and you show up, so you must be at fault). You and your partner manage to convince Moltres otherwise, but Articuno is still hell-bent on killing you after your fight. If Absol hadn't shown up when he did, you'd be dead.
**There's also the fact that one of the strongest rescue teams is reluctantly also trying to kill you. Your partner has idolized these guys and now they're explicitly trying to hunt you down on the off chance that killing you might restore the world to order, and have stated outright that anyone going with you is a target as well. Even with the head-start Alakazam gives you and the implied non-stop running you and your partner do, they still manage to catch up with you on the top of Mt. Freeze. Good thing Ninetales was there to set things straight, or...



* Directly after you defeat Groudon, [[spoiler: Xatu contacts everyone via telepathy and informs them that a star is crashing towards their world, and that it has the possibility of destroying EVERYTHING. It doesn't help that a picture of the star is shown, and that it looks like a giant fireball that nearly fills the whole screen... Imagine [[ColonyDrop what could have happened]] if you didn't convince Rayquaza to save everyone!]]

** Actually if you pay attention to the dialogue, it's heavily implied you were killed by the explosion of the meteor and that Gengar saves you. Still, the music and Gengar's lines about dragging you to 'the dark world' doesn't help.

* If you use an Itemizer Orb on an enemy that has used Mirror Move, you're the one who gets turned into an item. Sometimes food. This defeats you instantly with no chance of revival. Wonder how the team figures out how to resolve that one. [[TheDevsThinkOfEverything There's a specific game over message for it, too.]]

* You can't outrun Ghost-types because they can ''walk through walls'' and sometimes you may get in the way of one so that it can't get out of the wall for you to attack it, but it can ''still'' attack you. The same can be said for Fire- and Water-types for when they walk through lava and water, respectively.

* Some of the Friend Areas show clear signs of former human occupation; in particular, the Power Plant and Weird Laboratory even mention specifically that they were constructed in ancient times by humans, and then abandoned. In addition, the Pokémon of this world know what humans are but have never met one, as though they were a legend or relic out of the past. Implications are up to the players' own imagination.

* Joy Tower and similar places: You're without items, without your money, without your movesets... practically de-aged and sent into hell with no way out. And you have to endure 100 floors of this. 100 floors. That's torment.

torment.
* Wonder Mail Generators are pretty neat, right? Well, try entering a mission for Howling Forest 15F. The game gets confused when asked to end a mission on an unoccupied floor, so you enter a weird room, and the game tells you there's no one there and it's time to turn back. Smeargle is still there.

* The events before and after the Mystical Forest show [[HeroKiller what kind of force the heroes are up against]], in case Rayquaza running away in fear wasn't enough. It starts out as [[DaylightHorror a beautiful day]] in which the team get to travel to a new land. Then they overhear a chat about the petrification epidemic that gets interrupted by two objects crashing down from the sky from out of nowhere. They manage to get into the impact site only to find that those objects are Latios and Latias turned into stone after they were caught by an unknown pursuer. Keep in mind, the twin dragons have SuperSpeed that rivals jet planes; if they couldn't escape... [[PsychoStrings The music]] doesn't help either.

* The [[spoiler: [[KilledOffForReal death]] of Hydreigon]]. Even though [[spoiler: he comes back at the very end]].
** This deserves elaborating on: you've just been through several dungeons, you're mere moments away from safety, and then [[spoiler: Hydreigon]] says everything is starting to get colder. He dismisses it as nothing, and you keep moving only for [[spoiler: Kyurem to appear right in front of you, blast Hydreigon with ice and ''[[LiterallyShatteredLives shatter him right in front of you.]]'']] The fact that it's ''so'' sudden and unexpected makes it all the more terrifying. Furthermore [[spoiler: Hydreigon is killed ''instantly'', without even having a chance to react or even ''speak''. That kind of horrifyingly realistic death is very rarely seen even in the most mature of games, let alone ''Pokemon'' of all things]]. Then it gets even worse: [[spoiler: without even batting an eyelid, Kyurem proceeds to deliver a ''brutal'' NoHoldsBarredBeatdown ''to the protagonist'' by [[KickTheDog stomping on him]] [[MoralEventHorizon repeatedly.]] And the partner [[ForcedToWatch can only watch]], powerless to stop it, while this goes on for a while. ''Yeesh''.]]

* The fact that this game is even ''darker'' than Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky is this in itself. Yes, this includes the NightmareFuel shown in the above section.
