* Manga/PocketMonsters, a Japanese-only manga (for worthy reasons), got some pretty {{Squick}}-worthy things put out there in its early years, but one noticeable thing happens in volume 2. Genitalia are shown several times, once of a Pokémon and multiple times for his ten year old trainer. Even worse, in the latter's case it's a painful joke. Think a GroinAttack, but worse. ** The manga at several points early on does the "Poké Balls - Testicles" joke that has been a case of AccidentalInnuendo within the fandom.

* The female member of the group (as far as the ''Diamond and Pearl'' saga goes) is always subject to some kind of fan service as a selling point. Misty basically fit whatever role was necessary (maybe BareYourMidriff by default). May had an ''unbelievable'' bust size for a 10 year old, which actually shrunk when she made a guest appearance in the Sinnoh region. Dawn is probably the most capitalized one, having a DangerouslyShortSkirt (which you could see up in Steamboat Willies!), to the point where you could see the side of her rear quite often if she was in any pose other than standing or sitting. Even in the 13th movie, ''[[Anime/PokemonZoroarkMasterOfIllusions Zoroark: Master of Illusions]]'', there's a scene where Zorua bends over in front of Piplup while disguised in her. And there was no other reason for him to wear a "D8" expression. The only exception to this so far would be Iris (the female member of the group for the Unova region), considering she seems older and wears conservative clothing. Serena is also tamer, although once wore a PlayboyBunny-style Fennekin outfit.

* In "Mega Revelations!", the groups meets Korrina, who is quick and eager to challenge Ash to a battle in order to reach her 99th win. After the story so obviously allows her to win, it turns out she collects proof by having defeated opponents print the pages of a notebook she carries. Not only can this be considered a really morbid method as it could be confused with a GenkiGirl collecting spilled blood from her enemies, but she also makes Pikachu print it with a ketchup-covered paw. What color is ketchup? ''Red''. And she even went as far as to force him into doing it. [[FridgeHorror Were the others forced as well, probably while downed?]]

** In the Johto episode "The Corsola Caper" Brock is telling a girl he's met about his aspirations, and Misty drags him away, telling him "It's time to get your ''aspirations'' out of here."

* Elesa has a fair share of AmbiguouslyBi subtext, which while not inappropriate isn't exactly common in E rated games.

** Brock's line towards Casey isn't much better. He says [[TheJailbaitWait she'll be fun in eight years]].

* A novelization by Takeshi Shudo (one of the main writers of the anime back in the Kanto and Johto days) stated that ten-year-olds are legally adults in Pokepan. They have to pay taxes, can get arrested, and yes, they can even get married. Age of consent is probably ten, which isn't that off since in some parts of Japan it's thirteen.
