* UnwinnableByInsanity: It's possible to permanently strand yourself on a certain island on Route 226 after trading a Finneon (which can learn Surf) to an NPC for a Magikarp (which can't). However, the circumstances are so obscure, as well as Route 226 being a post-game route, that it's highly unlikely that anyone would ever have it happen to them.
** To elaborate, you need to have Finneon as the only Pokémon able to learn Surf, nothing in your party with Fly or Teleport, no Rare Candies to get the Magikarp to evolve into Gyarados (which learns Surf) and no fishing rod to either get experience to evolve Magikarp, catch something else to learn Surf, or get yourself knocked out to go back to a Pokémon Center. Although all three fishing rods are optional, Finneon needs a Good Rod to be caught, meaning that Finneon needs to be traded from another game to make stranding yourself possible.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMaze: Turnback Cave is very cryptic and the player will find themselves moving around in circles constantly unless they follow a series of patterns to get through. Just always go through the door with the odd pattern of rocks. At any time going back through the door you entered will take you back to the entry room. At the end of the cave is Giratina in Diamond & Pearl and another entrance to the Distortion World in Platinum.

* PopQuiz: Hearthome's Gym in Diamond & Pearl requires you to answer basic math equations to avoid battle, which means answering them wrong if you do want to battle each trainer. Fortunately Platinum changed this gym completely eliminating the math puzzle.

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

*** The Game Corner itself was {{bowdlerise}}d, too; the machines lack all functionality in the Korean versions of all three games and the European version of ''Platinum''


Added DiffLines:

** Once all of the events involving him have been completed, Looker can be found at the Veilstone Game Corner, apparently on a long run at the slots. Given that the "Gambler" trainer class was {{Bowdlerize}}d into being detectives, finding an actual detective on a gambling binge makes perfect sense. [[note]]''Diamond and Pearl'' had already been out for over a year in the regions where the {{Bowdlerization}} occurred when ''Platinum'', where Looker debuts, was first announced in Japan[[/note]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheDayTheMusicLied: In ''Diamond'' and ''Pearl'', Rotom uses the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAd_OxOj4fY Legendary Battle theme]]. While certainly rare in every game it's available in, it has always been able to be bred (albeit only with Ditto because it lacks a gender), a sure sign of not being a legendary.

* GameBreakingBug: ''Platinum'' only, and carried over to ''[=HeatGold=] and [=SoulSilver=]''; the [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Acid_rain Acid Rain glitch]] will cause every weather to activate at once if a Pokémon faints to [[YouWillNotEvadeMe Pursuit]] while attempting to switch out if a weather is in play during a PlayerVersusPlayer battle. If Castform or Cherrim are sent out after the glitch has been triggered they will constantly transform due to their abilities being weather-dependent and cause the battle to lock up, requiring a restart.

* 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.

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]].
