* The other right-hand man, [[spoiler: Ardos]], is far more nasty in other ways. Half of his team consists of very dangerous shadow pokemon, and the other half, consists of very dangerous non-shadow pokemon, unlike the aforementioned Ninjask and Flygon. His signature Pokemon, [[spoiler: Alakazam]], which utterly one-shotted a previous entry, has all elemental punches and has a very powerful STAB attack, all coming off from one of the highest special attack stats in the series, and he can easily target many shadow pokemon's, and even regular pokemon's weaknesses. Heracross and Kingdra are no slouches either, the former has a powerful STAB megahorn attack which will leave a mark, the latter has a weakness to a type that you most likely won't have, and can cover that weakness easily. Two of his shadow pokemon are extremely fast, and have a nasty move called "Shadow Half" which works like an unholy combination of pain split and super fang, which halves the HP of every pokemon on the field, with a recharge turn. The third shadow pokemon is a Snorlax, which introduces the powerful Shadow End move, which will destroy non-shadows very easily, and works really well together with its equally dangerous teammates. In addition, the first two shadow pokemon have four different shadow moves, including Shadow Break, Shadow Storm, Shadow Sky, and Shadow Mist. Oh and the Snorlax has leftovers, which actually makes this one of ''the'' most annoying shadow Pokemon to catch, as every turn, the catch rate decreases.

* Champion Lance has 6 Pokemon which all know the super-powerful Hyper Beam. His team consists of 3 under-leveled Dragonite, one of which has Outrage, which will easily take out most of your team unless you happen to have a then-rare steel type (only 5 fully-evolved steel Pokemon existed in Generation 2). They also know Thunder Wave, so chances are you'll be the slower one. His Aerodactyl is super-fast and has the flinch-inducing Rock Slide, which Aerodactyl [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard isn't even supposed to learn]] in Gen2. Gyarados and Charizard will be the least of your troubles, but even they are quite annoying.

* Winona uses Flying-types, and her last Pokemon is an Altaria which knows the deadly combo of Earthquake and Dragon Dance, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard which she can't learn at the level you fight her]], setting her up perfectly to sweep your entire team with powered up Earthquake and STAB Aerial Ace techniques, the latter of which never misses. Plus, Altaria is part Dragon-type, neutralizing its weakness to Electric-type moves. She's also the first leader to use Full Restores, which restore health AND cure ailments.

* [[BigBad Cyrus]]'s battle in Spear Pillar[[note]]Diamond / Pearl[[/note]] / Distortion World [[note]]Platinum[[/note]]. Gyarados used Aqua Tail / Waterfall! Bam, you're dead. Reload. Gyarados used Earthquake! Bam, you're dead. Gyarados used Ice Fang! Bam, you're dead. His [[FragileSpeedster Crobat]] is just as bad. Confuse Ray to throw you in for a loop, Air Slash to flinch, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard which is likely to happen]], and Toxic just to make it more painful. Honchkrow has a good mix of attacks, especially in Platinum. Houndoom in the Platinum version can pack quite a punch with Flamethrower and Dark Pulse, as well as Thunder Fang in case you were trying to use a Water-Type against it. Weavile, Cyrus's strongest Pokémon, has very high Attack and Speed. He will be able to demolish your team quite easily thanks to its high coverage, with attacks like Night Slash, Ice Punch, X-Scissor, and depending on the version, Brick Break (Diamond / Pearl) or Fake Out (Platinum). His team's movesets are much better than what you have faced up to that point as well, so... less to be said, Cyrus's team is quite the thing for that point in the game. If you lose, [[ContinuingIsPainful you're climbing back up Mt. Coronet and through the Distortion World]].
* Hell, speaking of Team Galactic, Commanders Mars and Jupiter, due to the EarlyGameHell aspect in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum being downright absurd, with their level curves resulting in extensive grinding for the average player. Not only this, but they have also earned the bane of many for their hideously underleveled Pokemon, ranging from [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard PURUGLY AT LEVEL 16 AND A SKUNTANK AT LEVEL 23]], both with endgame stats and movesets that otherwise annihilate any player that dares fight them unprepared or worse, (And [[ForcedLevelGrinding more than likely]]) underleveled. It doesn't help that these Pokémon have typing that leaves them each with only one type weakness. Purugly also knows the aptly-named Faint Attack, which can KO at low levels.

* The level 20 Alakazam in Pika Cup, who knows Psychic and Thunder Wave. Doesn't sound that intimidating, right? ''Wrong''. He's genuinely impossible to beat with rental Pokémon barring miraculous freeze hacks that you'll have only one chance at pulling off or else you die. The guides even advise the player to use a transfer pack, or pray that your opponent end up being the level 20 Dragonair.

* Totem Lurantis can also be a complete pain. Its moveset includes hard hitting attacks like Solar Blade, which it can charge up in one turn because it holds a Power Herb, and X-Scissor. It ''also'' knows Synthesis, so it gains half of its HP back whenever it wants to. It will even call forth a Trumbeak that loves spamming Supersonic and Pluck. Thought that bringing a Bug type would be helpful against it? You're dead wrong. But the worst part if it calls a Castform. The Castform it calls know Headbutt, which is surprisingly powerful at that point in the game and can let it flinch you, Weather Ball, and ''Sunny Day''. This means two things; First, it can take out most Bug types one might bring to beat it in one shot (Plus, if you chose Rowlet it can likely one shot that too). Secondly, it lets the Totem Lurantis heal ''75% of its HP'' and use Solar Blade without wasting a turn or Power Herb.

Herb. And just to add insult to injury, Totem Lurantis can also use Synthesis [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard more times]] than is possible for the player to[[note]]The highest a player can get Synthesis to is 8 with a PP Max. Totem Lurantis has been reported to use it nine times or more during a fight.[[/note]].

* Totem Pokémon Mimikyu, of all things. Its Disguise ability (basically a free Substitute--sans the HP loss--as soon as it's sent out) guarantees that it'll survive to call in an ally Pokémon, and every ally it calls has [[StandardStatusEffects Hypnosis]], so if you don't OHKO it immediately, it ''will'' put you to sleep. Its Totem Aura [[LightningBruiser boosts all of its stats]], so have fun trying to outspeed and overpower it. Thanks to these boosts, odds are it will survive to call another ally if you KO the first ally first. Thought you were going to be clever by bringing a Dark-type? Mimikyu has Play Rough to make short work of it.
* Unless you happened to pick Rowlet, then Totem Wishiwashi will be this. With decent bulk and sky-high offenses, it will blow holes in your team. All of its allies have Helping Hand to further boost said offenses, and it can also summon Alomomola, who can heal it. Thankfully, it loses its school form once it reaches 25% HP or lower, though Alomomola will usually heal it back up and [[HereWeGoAgain restore its school form]].

\n* Lance in Yellow. All of his Pokémon have been given upgrades to their Red and Blue movesets, making them much more threatening due to the wider range of moves. His Dragonite in particular has the strongest Fire-, Ice-, Electric-type moves available backed by its high stats to ensure that the player has a hard time trying to take it down.

** Miror B. has several Ludicolo that use Rain Dance to activate their abilities Rain Dish and Swift Swim, meaning either they regenerate their health or make them far faster than you. They are all fully evolved Pokémon at a decent level and have very few weaknesses you can exploit at that point in the game. Fortunately, he's easier in the sequel, although he does have a Shadow Dragonite in the last battle.

** One of Grand Master [[spoiler:Greevil's]] right-hand men as well as the penultimate boss, [[spoiler: Eldes]]. He has four Shadow Pokémon, which will be the highest amount you've seen in the game so far, and they are all hard hitters. Special mention goes to his Marowak, who hits extremely hard thanks to its held item the Thick Club, and his Salamence, who is Level 50 at a point where your past opponents have been in the mid forties. Without a decently bulky Shadow Pokémon to absorb their blows, Marowak and Salamence will pretty much one-shot anything you throw at them. And to make things worse, all of them (save for his Shadow Manectric) are decently bulky as well, making them even harder to take down. If it's any consolation, his non-Shadow Ninjask and Flygon are nowhere near as annoying to deal with as the rest of his party.
** The other right-hand man, [[spoiler: Ardos]], is far more nasty in other ways. Half of his team consists of very dangerous shadow pokemon, and the other half, consists of very dangerous non-shadow pokemon, unlike the aforementioned Ninjask and Flygon. His signature Pokemon, [[spoiler: Alakazam]], which utterly one-shotted a previous entry, has all elemental punches and has a very powerful STAB attack, all coming off from one of the highest special attack stats in the series, and he can easily target many shadow pokemon's, and even regular pokemon's weaknesses. Heracross and Kingdra are no slouches either, the former has a powerful STAB megahorn attack which will leave a mark, the latter has a weakness to a type that you most likely won't have, and can cover that weakness easily. Two of his shadow pokemon are extremely fast, and have a nasty move called "Shadow Half" which works like an unholy combination of pain split and super fang, which halves the HP of every pokemon on the field, with a recharge turn. The third shadow pokemon is a Snorlax, which introduces the powerful Shadow End move, which will destroy non-shadows very easily, and works really well together with its equally dangerous teammates. In addition, the first two shadow pokemon have four different shadow moves, including Shadow Break, Shadow Storm, Shadow Sky, and Shadow Mist. Oh and the Snorlax has leftovers, which actually makes this one of ''the'' most annoying shadow Pokemon to catch, as every turn, the catch rate decreases.
