* BiggerBad: [[spoiler:Greevil. Some lines in ''Colosseum'' hint at him being the one who provided Evice with the funds to create Cipher. This would make sense, as this would put him in a position to rebuild Cipher after Evice's defeat. Chief Sherles confirms this, stating that Evice was only the boss of the Orre region.]]

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: [[spoiler: Greevil, full stop. First, there's Shadow Lugia, the fight against it can take an eternity, mind you. Then you fight him ''right after you snag or bat said Lugia'', with your team at the same status. Why's this an example? ''He has '''seven Shadow Pokemon'''.'' All of them are quite good. He has the three legendary birds, a Rhydon, Eggsecutor, and a Tauros. The birds know a special Shadow move unique to them, and his other three have ''Shadow End''. Greevil will ''murder you'' without batting an eye, ''literally''.]]

'''''Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness''''' is a spinoff of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series and the sequel to ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum''. It was developed by Creator/GeniusSonority and released for the GameCube in 2005. Similar to its predecessor, its gameplay revolves less around battling wild Pokémon and more around stealing them from the bad guys.

* DiscOneNuke: Espeon once again, if you choose to evolve your Eevee in one. It's arguably worse due to the lower starting levels, but this Espeon has access to Bite for added coverage. Jolteon may count as a milder example, also being a fair notch above the early game foes statistically.

* MythologyGag: One trainer within Mt. Battle tells the player that she heard about another trainer who used the same ream as she did. Sure enough, the Pokémon on her team are Chimecho and Cacnea, the same team Team Rocket's James from the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]] had during the Hoenn saga.

Mr. Verich is not The Mole (he's not infiltrating anything), and deleted a sub-bullet that was an unnecessary spoiler. Removed some natter.
* GoldfishPoopGang: The Hexagon Brothers, who are a bunch of Cipher Peons with colorful outfits. They end up becoming this with repeat appearances.

* JokeCharacter: One of the Battle Bingo cards only contains Pokémon with a secondary Flying type. One of them is a Gligar... whose only move is Earthquake. [[NoSell Earthquake doesn't work on Flying types.]] Yeah. And if you plan out your moves wrong, you could be ''forced'' to catch it just to have enough EP to continue.

** In Japanese, the hero is Ryuto: "to kill". In English, he's Michael: "who is like God?". His other default English names are Adam and David.

* NeverSayDie: [[spoiler:It's made blatantly obvious that Cipher used Shadow Lugia to outright '''murder''' the S.S. Libra crew down to the last man, but since this is [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids still an 'E' game]], the story does its best to gloss over this fact.]] * ObfuscatingStupidity: Some bimbo doesn't get a job as an Admin in the lab coincidentally. Lovrina must be one crazy scientist, especially if she claims to have made [=XD001=] unpurifiable. She just pretends to be a ValleyGirl so people underestimate her [[TheEvilGenius ginormous brain.]]

* ThePsychoRangers: The Hexagon Brothers, who are a bunch of Cipher Peons with colorful outfits. * QuirkyMinibossSquad: The Hexagon Brothers, again. They each have their own Shadow Pokémon of a different element. Ironically, their leader Resix has the least amount of Pokémon (Though they are the highest level).

** The Hexagon Brothers always count themselves incorrectly for one reason or another. ** Eagun's inept with computers, as proven by the antics related to him either accidentally sending a blank e-mail or him accidentally sending e-mails that are cut off. (Incidentally, the gag started off in ''VideoGame/PokemonColloseum'' when he sent an e-mail to Wes to request his presence so that he could give him the Master Ball in person).

** Plus, you learn some vital information and go to a distant town to tell someone. You step into town and you immediately get treated to weird music and the townsfolk are acting a little off. Have fun! *** This is because [[spoiler:you got there too late and Cipher has already replaced almost everyone in the town with their members. Those missing people?

* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: Taken quite literally with [[spoiler:Ardos. When he [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps]] Zook in Gateon Port, his Alakazam is Level 44. When you battle him on Citadark Isle, it's still Level 44.]]
