* ImmortalProcreationClause: Most Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are supposedly immortal (either [[TheAgeless biologically]] or [[CompleteImmortality completely]]) but are also incapable of breeding... Again, supposedly. This is mostly true in the main games (the big exception being Manaphy [[spoiler:And Solgaleo and Lunala]]), but other areas of Pokémon media do have examples of other Legendaries, such as Lugia, having offspring.

** Pokémon with the Speed Boost ability. This ability causes the Pokémon to gain one stage of a Speed buff at the end of every turn, which means it only takes about a turn or two to outspeed almost any Pokémon in the game.

%%* FragileSpeedster

to:

%%* FragileSpeedster*FragileSpeedster: There are numerous Pokemon that are this, though the prime example has to be Ninjask. It is one of the fastest Pokemon with an ability that boosts its speed at the end of each turn. However, Ninjask goes down very quickly as it is very fragile.

* FragileSpeedster: Sweepers are usually this, but a prime example is Ninjask, who is completely built around Speed, yet falls behind in actual fighting. It's usually used to Baton Pass its Speed buffs to other sweepers.

* GameFavoredGender: In Gen II, when the whole concept of gender was introduced to the games, a Pokémon's attack IV determined its gender - an attack value above a certain threshold made it male, and below that made it female. This meant that female Pokémon (unless it was an all female species such as Miltank) could never have a very high Attack stat - most Pokémon have a 50/50 gender ratio, which meant that a female could usually only have, at the most, half the attack power of a male. This is even worse for rarer Pokémon, like any of the three starters, or the Eeveelutions, which have a 1:7 female to male ratio - the idea being they should be harder to get for breeding purposes (since the the baby will always be of the mother's species, unless breeding with Ditto) - but this also meant a female could only ever be ''one seventh'' as strong as a male. This is changed from Generation III onwards, where gender is determined by a completely separate value rather than stats.

* GlassCannon: While many Pokémon can be built into one, some species are more prone to working in this fashion. Deoxys-Attack is by ''far'' the best example: it has sky-high attack stats and Speed, but ''the worst'' Defense of any Pokémon in the game. It'll faint to just about any attack with moderate power! (In fact, it's been known to OHKO ''itself'' while confused!) There's several others as well, on a slightly lesser scale.

[[UnfortunateImplications So, basically, female Pokémon were hopeless in battle, making them largely only useful for breeding.]]
** This was thankfully fixed from Gen III onwards, with gender being determined by a completely separate value, so now it makes absolutely no difference to a Pokémon's stats.
