* 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...]]

* ShopliftAndDie: God help you if you try to take an item from a Kecleon shop.
** Unfortunately, it's the only way to recruit Kecleon.

* VagueAge: No playable character has their age stated. It's implied the protagonist and their partner are {{Kid Hero}}es but that doesn't say much.



* WhamLine: [[spoiler:'''Gengar''': ''"Kekeh! And that human is the rotten coward that abandoned Gardevoir, correct? I don't think the human can complain about anything if we get rid of it. Isn't that right, (Player Name)?"'']]

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.

* YouAreWorthHell: In a postgame event, Latios is so desparate to locate his younger sister Latias in Pitfall Valley that he doesn't care if he becomes lost forever in it himself, so long as the two of them are together. About the only thing stopping him is that you tracked down and defeated him in battle first.

** CommonplaceRare: Some Pokémon that were ComMons in Generation 3 main games are not so common here. For example, Pidgey and Magikarp can be recruited only (the latter won't appear in ''Red Rescue Team'' at all until it's unlocked) in specific dungeons, where they spawn with an average rate of 1.50% and 2.13%, respectively.[[labelnote:Note]]For good comparison, Mew's spawn rate is anywhere between 0.21% and 1.22%, depending on the floor.[[/note]]

* CommonplaceRare: In the [=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=] games, Pidgey were very common. Here? Other than the tutorial dungeon, there's only one place where it spawns, with a spawn rate of 1.50%.[[note]]For good comparision, Mew's spawn rate is anywhere between 0.21% and 1.22%, depending on the floor.[[/note]] Weirdly enough, its evolution is much more common, having anywhere between 23% and 33% to spawn, appearing in two dungeons.

* 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.
