* In R/B/Y, Giovanni reforms after his defeat, which is solidified in G/S/C when Team Rocket's attempt to contact him gets nowhere. In the remakes, he pretends to reform after his defeat in FR/LG, was willing to join his team again in HG/SS, and by US/UM he's back to planning world domination actively.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VgXtwxIW-Q A follow-up trailer]] has the boy, Shohei, get in a fight with his new friend, Hoku, because Hoku keeps mercilessly beating him down in Pokemon battles. For a majority of the trailer, Shohei is distant and hurt, but eventually he remembers that Pokemon is what brought them together, and all of the fun they've had. They trade Miniors nicknamed Hokulele and Ryusei, which mean "shooting star" in Hawaiian and Japanese, respectively, and both apologize.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VC_GAHetj0 In the third and final trailer in this series,]] a group of older kids take over Shohei and his friends' 'base', and mockingly challenge them to a Pokemon battle for it. Shohei and Hoku lose horribly. But [[CharacterDevelopment rather than give up and sulk as in Trailer 2]], Shohei immediately perks up and suggests they all seriously train their Pokemon. What follows is a montage of the kids figuring out the best moves and abilities they can get for their 'Mons, battling other kids and doing incredibly well. Then [[spoiler: Shohei comes home to his mother sitting at the table, laptop open. She turns to him and nods wordlessly - [[DownerEnding her assignment in Hawaii is over with, and they have to return to Japan.]]]]

* A major plot point in ''Sun and Moon'' is the Ultra Beasts, Pokemon-like creatures who are explicitly ''not'' Pokemon and came out of nowhere, wreaking havoc on the world. The worst part is [[spoiler:they are widely speculated to have destroyed at least one world, the world of the GBA and DS Pokemon games. Meaning everything the players strived for and everything they accomplished in those worlds was destroyed, offscreen, with an amnesiac Looker and Anabel as the only survivors]].
** [[spoiler: Except they didn't. The only thing in the games that even remotely alludes to anything being destroyed is Anabel claiming that she was protecting the Battle Tower which A, was the whole point of her job as a Frontier Brain, and B, is absolutely not the same thing as the entire universe getting destroyed. The idea that the Ultra Beasts destroyed the original world was just a [[EpilepticTrees fan-theory that got out of control]] in the weeks before the game's official release, and not something to be taken too seriously]].

* In Pokemon OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire, when one goes to Sea Mauville, the player can find a series of notes in one of the rooms which were written by a child (revealed to be Cozmo, an NPC professor you save early-ish in the game) addressed to his father. [[spoiler: In these notes reveal through lots of subtle clues that Cozmo's parents are divorced and are clearly have a very rocky relationship. These notes also reveal that the divorce was due to the long periods of time that Cozmo's father had to spend away from his family due to his job. It ends with Cozmo wishing for his father to come home soon; begging him to come home more often. It even possibly implied that even young Cozmo (despite he missed his father) was starting to resent him, as he traded away his Salamence (Which his father fondly gave him, and was probably the last thing he ever gave him) for a Solrock. Though young Cozmo's reasoning was that he preferred Pokemon that resembled rocks more than others. Yet there could still be deeper reasons implied for that trade]].

* In the original games, there's the aftermath of when you defeat your rival. He had just achieved his dream of becoming Champion, only to have to ripped away from him immediately. Then his grandfather, Professor Oak arrives to escort you into the Hall of Fame, but not before saying "I'm disappointed in you" to your rival. As if losing wasn't bad enough, he then gets chided by his grandfather. Even if he was an egotistical asshole, he didn't deserve this. However, things got better for him in GSC when he becomes the Viridian City Gym leader.
