** If you want to find extra Reaper Cloths beyond the ones normally found as part of play, you have to go back to Turnback Cave after catching Giratina and successfully find all three pillars in only three moves. The rooms are randomly generated, and a reliable way to predict the correct way to go from each room has yet to be found. Considering that the Reaper Cloth's one use (evolving Dusclops into Dusknoir) isn't seen as all that useful beyond filling out a spot in the Pokédex, most players don't even bother.

** In ''Platinum'', after getting the first badge and doing a little backtracking, it is possible to find a level 10 Golbat in Oreburgh Gate. (Zubat does not normally evolve into Golbat until level 22.) Golbat evolves to the insanely fast and strong Crobat at max happiness, meaning that the player could have the final form of a three-stage family by the time they reach the second Gym. Oh, and both of Crobat's types are super effective against said Gym.

And if you're ''really'' crazy and want to do everything to raise its happiness to the max, you can actually get a Crobat as low as level 11.

The fourth generation of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games, ''Diamond and Pearl'' hit the UsefulNotes/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.

** Just after the SECOND GYM, in Platinum only, Wayward Cave's secret area isn't blocked by boulders so you can have easy access to both Gible and TM Earthquake easily before the third gym!

** In ''Diamond'', the statue in Eterna City is that of Dialga, in ''Pearl'' it is of Palkia. In ''Platinum'' the player character can't tell which one it is, [[TheUnReveal and the plaque on the statue has been torn off]].

* UnsoundEffect: When visiting Dr. Footstep. instead of speaking, a few voiceless Pokémon will say, "Ssshhhnnn... ... Ssshhhnnn... ... Ssshhhnnn... ...", which is similar to the Japanese "sound effect" for silence.

* 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.

* ExposedToTheElements: In Diamond and Pearl, the protagonist is somehow able to survive the likes of Snowpoint City with just a t-shirt and jeans (for the boy) or a short, sleeveless dress (for the girl) and a scarf. This is averted in Platinum, where the protagonists are wearing jackets.

** ''Platinum'' also exaggerates and lampshades it with Maylene, who walks all the way to Snowpoint in nothing more than a leotard and sweatpants (she's even ''barefoot''). She sneezes while explaining to the player that she's going to visit Candice, but she's otherwise suffering no ill effects for this by the time she's met in Snowpoint's Center.
