* LostForever: Pretty much anything involving Wi-Fi, since Nintendo had permanently shut down Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to replace it with the Nintendo Network (which Diamond/Pearl/Platinum aren't compatible with).

The fourth generation of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games, ''Diamond and Pearl'' hit the NintendoDS in 2006. Taking place in Sinnoh, the Pokémon world version of the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the plot is familiar territory for the series: [[HelloInsertNameHere you]], a child from the modest little village of Twinleaf Town, and your [[TheRival hyperactive best friend]], have a fateful encounter with Professor Rowan, the local authority on Pokémon, and his well-meaning but inexperienced assistant. Said encounter leaves you both with your first [[{{Mon}} Pokémon]], so naturally you set out ToBeAMaster, collecting monsters and badges and challenging/defeating opposing Trainers along the way.

* InUniverseGameClock: Made use of the NintendoDS's internal clock in a similar manner to how the second generation of games used a clock built into the cartridge, and future DS games kept that feature.

** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Dual-slot_mode Dual-Slot Mode]] allows you to encounter Pokémon that normally don't show up in the wild (like Gengar) by having a copy of one of the Gen III games in the bottom slot of the DS. This only works when played on the original UsefulNotes/NintendoDS or DS Lite, since the DSi onward lacked the slot for [[UsefulNotes/GameboyAdvance Game Paks]].

A [[RuleOfThree third version]], titled ''[[UpdatedRerelease Platinum]]'', came out a couple years down the line. ''Platinum'' tweaked the storyline a bit, adding more characters, remodeling the graphics of a few locations, and naturally including new challenges for players.

* DevelopersForesight:
** Arceus has data for a ???-type forme, despite said type being exclusive to one move and is impossible to access without hacking in a corresponding Plate.
** If you run away from Giratina when you're supposed to fight[=/=]catch it in the Distortion World in ''Platinum'', Cyrus will comment on it.

* RegionalRedecoration: Floraroma Town used to be a desolate hill until someone expressed thanks for a blessing of nature and the entire hill burst into bloom, which is implied to have been the work of Shaymin. The evidence being that during the Oak's Letter event it turns the rocky hill both Lucas/Dawn and Professor Oak are standing into a grassy flower field after the former gives thanks for their journey, before heading off to the Flower Paradise.

It got a movie focusing on it, was included in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' as a playable character, and was even given a [[SuperMode Mega Evolution]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY''.
