* 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]]

* RottenEasterEgg: 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.

* 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.

* LostWoods: Eterna Forest is a natural maze with its tick trees. On your first visit you team up with a trainer named Cheryl and every battle is fought as a double battle.

* CosmicHorrorReveal: Cyrus, the BigBad takes this UpToEleven by attempting to destroy and re-create the entire '''universe''' as he sees fit. He does this by imprisoning three legendary Pokemon (Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit) in order to create an object called the "Red Chain" which he then uses to summon Dialga and Palkia (who happen to be the God of Time and God of Space respectively). Cyrus then attempts to use their power to bend reality and reshape the universe in his image. In ''Pokemon Platinum'', this causes Giratina (a ghostly dragon-god living in an alternate dimension) to become enraged and drags Cyrus into its world ([[EldritchLocation a bizarre real where the laws of physics and so forth are far beyond human understanding. Appropriately, it's called the "Distortion World"]]). And, once again, it's up to the player to save the day.
