%%* CharacterPortrait* CharacterPortrait: The protagonist and their partner have over a dozen emotive portraits, and most background characters have at least one.
* CircularWaterfall: "Enclosed Island," one of the unlockable friend zones, which houses Deoxys. It appears as a [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/6/6e/Enclosed_Island.png rocky outcropping in the center of a circular waterfall]] with a single narrow path leading off screen.
--> '''Description''': An eerie light encloses this rocky island, keeping out the sea. It is as if the island is in another dimension.

* ZergRush: Monster Houses drop a whole bunch of hostile Pokemon in the room you're in. Bottlenecking them by walking back the way you came is generally a good idea to clear house, but if you brought a partner with you, expect for them to get hammered on the way back.

* CardCarryingVillain: Medicham of Team Meanies proudly declares that their ultimate goal is [[TakeOverTheWorld World Domination]]. ([[RuleOfDrama ...which they intend to accomplish by doing rescue missions]]?)
** Actually, they mention why they're doing rescues: Every mission gives them more money and influence in the eyes of society. Your team shuts that down pretty quickly, though-Meanies stops being a threat post Mt. Freeze.

* AmbiguousGender: Unlike in future games, Pokemon's genders aren't shown when you fight them and most NPCs aren't referred to by gendered pronouns (others either use their name or occasionally use "it" or "they"/"them" instead). This made the move Attract into a very powerful move as EveryoneIsBi.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The covers have the various members of both Team Meanies and Team ACT surrounding what appears to be the main characters. In the game, Team ACT are one of the good guys while Team Meanies are {{Card Carrying Villain}}s.
** Except [[spoiler: late in the game Team ACT has to hunt you down, so its more of covers always spoil]].
** Also, for some reason, one member is swapped out for the member of the other team on each box-it features Gengar being in Team ACT (which would make it Team AGT) and Charizard in Team Meanies.

* GenderNeutralWriting: The game almost always avoids referring to you or your partner by gendered pronouns. Usually they use your name instead of a pronoun.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Gengar says "To heck with it" at one point.



* HasTwoMommies: Diglet refers to Dugtrio as a singular "Dad" but also refers to their heads as individuals.



* HumanitysWake: The game is highly ambiguous about where the humans are (Gardevoir had a trainer once and the other Pokemon understand the concept of humans, but humans are not seen and the story implies the protagonist might be from [[TrappedInAnotherWorld another universe]]). Certain areas such as the "Ruins" friend zone implies the series takes place centuries after humans died out.



* NeverSayDie: Many euphemisms are used instead, despite the fact part of the plot has [[spoiler:Pokemon trying to kill you]].



* [[RareRandomDrop Rare Random Recruit]]: Holy cow, '''Kecleon.''' He has the lowest base recruit rate in the game, at '''''-33.9%''''' (yes, that is a negative number). To even have a shot at catching him, you need a Pokemon at maximum level that is holding the Friend Bow, and even then, its recruitment rate only tops at '''.1%'''. Not to mention that [[ShopliftAndDie you have to steal from one to force it into fighting]], and [[DemonicSpider they respawn endlessly in droves and are hellbent murderers...]]

** Unfortunately, it's the only way to recruit Kecleon.

Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveResearchedBreathing: In the main games, evolution is a natural and common part of most Pokemon's lives. Even if it doesn't happen to them, they've likely seen it occur to another Pokemon. In these games however evolution cannot be unlocked until post-game. That would be fine if not for the lack of understanding of the concept by [=NPCs=]. The partner and several others have never heard of it (even Metapod, who is a stage two Pokemon).

Added DiffLines:

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Almost all boss Pokémon found at the end a 99 floor dungeon have a 99.9 percent base rate of being recruited, meaning the player won't have to slog through the hour-long level again just because they got unlucky. The only exception to this is Mewtwo, who can't be recruited on the first battle but has the standard 99.9 chance on subsequent runs.
