* FantasyCounterpartReligion: In-universe some religions seem to worship Pokemon (like RealLife animism), typically powerful Legendaries. The anime has a few Buddhist parallels early on, but the game religions don't really seem to be based off anything.

** Game director Junichi Masuda's favorite Pokémon used to be Pichu. [[note]]It's now Victini[[/note]] It kinda shows. It's all over the place despite not seeming to be that popular with the fans.

** Struggle, a literal DesperationAttack. It only becomes available when the Pokémon ''literally'' can't do anything else. It's not very strong, either, and comes with heavy recoil that usually quickly KOs the user.

** The reason for this is probably because of the e-acute (é) in the word. The correct pronounciation is (as spelled on [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]]) "POH-kay-mon". To elaborate each syllable:

Added DiffLines:

* GrandfatherClause: Despite newer games introducing Pokémon with considerable differences between their male and female forms in terms of appearance, being able to evolve, and even stats and movepools (Meowstic being a very good example) , male and female Nidoran remain counted as two distinct species.

* BonsaiForest: Often, the entire forests in the series look like they've been recently planted. This is especially silly since this means Sudowoodo -- who stands at 3'11" (1.2m) -- is able to convincingly pass off as a tall tree.

** Not only that Hyperspace Hole and Hyperspace Fury will never miss, they also break any protection moves as well. Normally, protection moves block other always-accurate moves.

** Z-Moves that do damage completely ignore accuracy checks, and not even protection moves can block them (though they do reduce their power by 75%).



** Also, N and Ghetsis in Black/White are kinda counting on this to pull off their plans (though N is also really frustrated by it, going so far as to outright state that if people in general were more like the player character, he wouldn't have to bother with separating people and Pokémon.)

* BlockingStopsAllDamage: The move Protect and all its variants block any damage from the opponent's moves, except for a certain few moves.
* BloodKnight: This is implied of all Pokémon. Outside of a handful of exceptions, they all are willing to fight each other at their trainer's command. People who believe Pokémon battling to be bad or are uncomfortable with the concept are shown to be wrong or later change their attitude.

Added DiffLines:

* BraggingRightsReward:
** In many games, completing the Pokédex earns you no reward other than a Diploma to certify you did, and zilch else. ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' added more substantial awards in the Oval and Shiny Charms (to make it easier to get eggs and find shiny Pokémon, respectively), which carried over to future games.
** Certain Pokémon wind up only being available after the main story is over, leaving little in-game incentive to use them (such as the Metagross line in Gen III, and Mewtwo in just about every game). BonusBoss Legendary Pokémon like Zygarde in ''X/Y'' and Necrozma in ''Sun/Moon'' are especially prone to this, since despite later games having a Battle Frontier-style facility for a harder challenge, said facilities ban those Pokémon, meaning that there's nothing left for them to do outside of multiplayer.
** Mythical Pokémon are, [[TemporaryOnlineContent thanks to their main gimmick]], hard to get but usually very powerful. They're also kept secret for many years, so in all likelihood you'll have beaten the game already by the time one is released for it. In recent years, they only come as direct downloads at a high level and with a set OT, meaning you don't even own them. On top of all that, they're banned from Battle facilities and aren't even needed to complete the Pokédex, so more often than not they'll sit in a player's box as glorified trophies.

* DomesticatedDinosaurs: A good number of Pokémon greatly resemble dinosaurs (and in some cases, are explicitly dinosaurs). They can be tamed and trained like any other Pokémon with no problem.

** The [=RNG=] is notably very biased towards computer players. For example, a [=CP=]-controlled 'Mon will probably shrug off Confusion naturally on the second turn. A human player attempting that will typically have to wait five turns.
