* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Shadow Pokémon cannot be LostForever, as you can eventually rematch all Shadow Pokémon Trainers.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Shadow Pokémon cannot be LostForever, [[PermanentlyMissableContent lost]], as you can eventually rematch all Shadow Pokémon Trainers.



* LostForever:
** Averted; if you fail to Snag a Shadow Pokémon the first time, you will eventually get a chance to rematch the trainer and try again, although it will be much later in the game.
** Played straight with the Mirakle B. BonusBoss fight; he leaves forever after you beat the game.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Throughout the game, most of the enemies you fight use Pokemon that were available to you at the time of the game's release (Pokemon obtainable in Ruby, Sapphire, Colosseum, or by breeding the Pokemon you Snagged in Colosseum). There are a few examples of NPCs using Pokemon that weren't possible to get yet: Venus's Steelix, an Under Colosseum trainer that has a Politoed, A [=Porygon2=] with the trainer you Snag Miltank from, and [[spoiler: Evice's Slowking and Scizor.]] All of these Pokemon would not be available until Fire Red and Leaf Green, which would be released later that year.

** In all Pokemon battles prior to the 4th generation (as in this game), when you use an item in battle it takes effect immediately, while you're ''still on the menu screen'' the actual round of combat hasn't started yet. In double battles this means that you can't cancel/undo the item and make your first Mon perform another action instead. But it does mean that the AI hasn't picked its moves either, so it can make decisions based on ''results'' of any items you use. This means that when you use an item to cure a status effect (such as Poison or Confusion), the AI can re-afflict your Pokemon with that status on the ''same turn''. Another example in double battles is that if you're down to your last Mon and use a Revive, you're required to send the revived Mon out immediately (also before the AI decides its moves), which means that the AI can attack (and possibly KO) the Mon on the same turn it was revived. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpaAdEZrAyE&t=1h1m39s An example:]] a Machamp who has previously used Bulk Up against a Skarmory, both are the last standing Pokemon. The guy playing wants to revive Espeon to finish the Machamp. Whenever the player heals Skarmory, Machamp uses Cross Chop. Whenever the player revives Espeon (and sends it, as he has no choice but send it), Machamp uses Earthquake, ''which would make absolutely no sense unless the AI knew beforehand Skarmory wouldn't be the only opponent on the field during that turn''.



* DifficultySpike: The two final bosses. Most of the battles you've faced so far are up to the high 40s maximum, but the last two are in the 50s and 60-61 respectively. You'll likely have to grind a bit before you can stand a chance of beating them.

* LongSongShortScene: Realgem Tower's theme only appears when within the small entrance area (as the other areas within it use the theme song for shady areas due to it being under Team Cipher's control).

* MagicSkirt: The camera is quite careful about this for every female opponent, but it becomes really noticeable if you play VS mode with [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Leaf]], who still has a skirt that just barely covers the hips and has a pose (one foot out forward and leaning in, as if bracing against wind) that should provide maximal viewing. The skirt is posed in ''just'' the right way for it to reveal nothing at any camera angle.

* DefectorFromDecadance: It's unknown how long Wes had worked for Team Snagem but he stayed with the organization long enough to learn their criminal ways and become a close associate with Gonzap before having a change of heart and leaving them.

** Even the main character, Wes, is darker and grittier than the usual fare of Pokemon protagonists. He's a master thief, a former member of a criminal organization, and owns a badass hoverbike that puts every other bike in the Pokemon universe to shame.

The fact that he starts the story by bombing Team Snagem's Hideout really goes to show far he'll go as a newly-reformed vigilante.

* ArtificialBrilliance: Unlike most Pokemon games, where the AI isn't refined much beyond exploiting type advantages, the bosses in ''Colosseum'' actually have rather effective strategies, which make full use of the double battle system, perhaps most notably with the FinalBoss, who uses a Xatu with Skill Swap alongside a Slaking (a LightningBruiser kept from being nigh-unstoppable only by its Truant ability).
