* ThirdPersonPerson: Jovi and Chobin both speak like this. Oddly, the former is introduced directly after the latter, making this ''really'' stand out.

* BigBad: [[spoiler:Greevil, the true leader of Cipher.]]
** GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler: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.]]

* ArtEvolution: The graphics improved greatly from ''Colosseum'' to ''[=XD=]''. This is especially noticeable with the human characters; the Pokémon in ''Colosseum'' looked fine (and look unchanged for ''XD''), but the human characters looked like they belonged on the [=N64=] and had no facial movements.

** Lovrina, Snattle and Gorigan all come to respect you when you defeat them in the post-game colosseum. [[spoiler:Ardos]], however, gives you a death threat. What a douche.

* CrutchCharacter: Shadow Pokémon have moves super effective against everything but one another, but they can't level up until they're purified.
** Poochyena. Bite + Dig is decent coverage, but the fact that Dig takes 2 turns, it evolves early (meaning it gets good stats for when it first evolves, but it never progresses beyond that) and fact that it gets nothing beyond that means that its teammates will quickly catch up with it after a bit.

* CeilingCling: Just like in ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', Cipher Peons like to hang from the ceiling while waiting to ambush you.

* CurbStompBattle: During your first trip into Gateon port, Michael's little sister bumps into a thug, Zook. They're saved by one of Mr. Verich's bodyguards, whose Lv.44 Alakazam wipes the floor with Zook's Shadow Zangoose. [[spoiler: [[IWasJustPassingThrough This turns out to be less about saving Michael and Jovi than it is about having Zook flaunt his Shadow Zangoose in public.]]]]
** Lots of people seem to forget that Zook is actually involved in 2 Curbstomp Battles. When you first reach the Cipher Key Lair, he easily defeats Team Snagem Biden's Oddish in 1 turn with his Shadow Zangoose.
* DamageOverTime: Shadow Pokémon who enter "Reverse Mode" in battle sustain damage per turn, as do non-Shadow Pokémon when subjected to "Shadow Sky" weather.

** While Miror B. returns in this game and is no longer part of Cipher, and [[spoiler:Evice]] is stated to still be behind bars, what became of the other Cipher Admins from Colosseum is never mentioned. And while Folly and Trudly still work for Miror B., Reath and Ferma are absent.

When you battle him on Citadark Isle, it's still Level 44.]] Also done with Miror B. throughout the game - when you first meet him, his team is at a level that's a slight challenge.

* WelcomeToCorneria: Averted full time. As you progress into the story, [=NPCs=] will have different remarks on what's been happening. For example, if you return back to Krane after [[spoiler:Snagem steals your Snag Machine]], both him and your mother will notice it, even though you're not required to talk to them during that part of the game.
