* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The Galactic Grunt that guards the door to the Valley Windworks building has one moment that ruins his otherwise moment of [[GenreSavvy Genre Savviness]]. Retreating inside and locking the door would have been a great idea had he ''not'' stated another Grunt had a copy of the key...

* EternalEngine: The Feugo Ironworks is a factory where Oreburgh's coal is refined into mechanical parts. As part of an optional sidequest, the player can visit Mr. Feugo who will reward with an item.

%%* * InnBetweenTheWorlds: You know that one inn in Canalave with the worn-out sign and the perpetually locked door?door? If you get a certain item made available via Nintendo Event (or hack it into your game with a cheating device), you'll be able to enter, being told that you have a reservation. The innkeeper seems quite suspicious, and after you go to sleep, you'll be plagued with nightmares similar to what Sailor Eldritch's son had in the Cresselia quest and either wake up on [[spoiler:Newmoon Island]] or travel there ''in the nightmare''; it's a bit ambiguous. [[spoiler:Darkrai]] can be found there, and after you catch or defeat it, you'll travel back to the inn, where the innkeeper is nowhere to be found; it's somewhat implied that the innkeeper ''was'' [[spoiler:Darkrai]].



* MetalSlime: Beldum. It can only be found as a swarm Pokémon, meaning it can only be encountered for one day at a time after beating the game and it can potentially take weeks before a Beldum swarm shows up. Beldum has a catch rate on par with most legendaries, which means an extremely low likelihood of catching it even if it's at 1 HP and asleep/paralyzed. It also only appears in a route with a perpetual sandstorm that wittles down your Pokémon's HP unless it's a Steel, Rock, or Ground-type. If that's not all, Beldum's only move learned naturally is Take Down, which damages the user every time it's used. You can block Take Down with a Ghost-type, but there are no Ghost-types immune to sandstorm damage in those games, meaning you have to waste a turn healing every now and then. And if you don't catch it before it runs out of uses for Take Down, it can damage itself with [[DesperationAttack Struggle]]. It's worth it, though - Beldum eventually evolves into the extremely powerful [[InfinityMinusOneSword Metagross]].

* PortTown: Once again there are two, the industrialized Canalave City and the tourist-friendly Sunnyshore City.

* PortTown: Once again there There are two, three this time: the industrialized Canalave City City, the frigid Snowpoint City, and the tourist-friendly Sunnyshore City.Sunyshore City. Despite all being at opposite ends of the map, these are actually the locations of the final three gyms you'll face.

* EasterEgg: Both this and FridgeHorror. An Antidote (a medicine that heals the Poison status effect ) can be found in a garbage can in the Dining Room of the Old Chateau. The same building is also home to some human ghosts. The implications speak for themselves.

* CaptainObvious: Daisy the Psychic: she states that she will battle you when she catches you, and that she will reluctantly give you prize money when you beat her. Both of which you would know by you encounter her, especially since you've '''beaten the Pokemon League''' as she's on the island you can only reach via beating the game.



* {{Nerf}}: Hypnosis' accuracy was reduced to 60% in ''Platinum'' after ''Diamond and Pearl'' increased it to 70%.

** A quite cruel, but hilarious one happens to poor ol' Regigigas in Platinum. In Diamond and Pearl, this legendary is level 70, but in Platinum, the legendary is '''Level 1'''. That's right, the big Daddy of Golems starts with the level of an '''infant Pokemon'''.

** When you reach Stark Mountain for the first time you encounter Buck who asks you to patrol it for some suspicious activity. If you say "No" he will continue to ask you to patrol the mountain.

* {{Rewrite}}: ''Platinum'' changes the circumstances of how you obtain your starter, possibly to avoid any FridgeLogic when you meet Looker. [[note]]In ''Diamond''/''Pearl'', you swipe your starter from Rowan's briefcase to defend yourself from a wild Starly attack, meaning you took them without permission; Rowan's comments afterward imply he only "gives" them to you because they've already imprinted on you and wouldn't work with anyone else anyway. ''Platinum'', by contrast, has him giving them to you directly.[[/note]]

* EldritchLocation: The Distortion World in Platinum where Giratina lives. It's clear that the area is not within the normal World, but within an alternate dimension where time does not flow and space does not expand. There are also a few points where the camera changes angles and the character is walking sideays or upside-down.

* SlippySlideyIceWorld: Route 217 is covered in snow and plagued by a constant snowstorm. Snowpoint City is a snowy town, and the gym plays this straight with the typical sliding ice puzzles. The upper areas of Mt. Coronet's outdoor portion is also cold and snowy.

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

* SequenceBreaking: Once you get to Solaceon Town, you actually ''don't'' need to complete any of the towns or beat the Gym Leaders in them to progress further down the routes. The only areas blocked off here are Celestic Town[[note]]because of Psyduck[[/note]] and Sunyshore City[[note]]because of a blackout[[/note]]. So, if you ''really'' wanted to, you ''can'' circle around all the way back to Hearthome City. Granted, the only reason worth doing this would be to open a shortcut to the Pokemon Mansion, or if there's a Pokemon you just want/need ''that'' much, but it ''is'' a possibility.
