* BrokenAesop:
** An example where it happens ''to the villain''. [[spoiler:Lysandre wanted to wipe out everyone but Team Flare because people were ruining the world through their selfish greed. Yet everywhere the player goes, there are people who give you all kinds of useful items for free, and you'll be hard-pressed to find ''anyone'' that can be considered greedy. Indeed, the only people who come across as selfish are Team Flare and Lysandre himself, meaning if anyone is ruining the world, it's ''them''.]] Then again, the villain in question is clearly stark raving mad.
** What your rival says to you on Victory Road about Team Flare and everyone's actions doesn't make a lick of sense. While the idea of both sides having a voice to speak out and meeting half-way is nice and all, it falls apart by the fact that both sides already gave their voices and yet it's Team Flare who refused to compromise when everyone else offered the opportunity to work together and form a truce. You can't really say that your actions in stopping Team Flare were "wrong" when [[spoiler:they're about to use a WeaponOfMassDestruction to wipe out both people and Pokémon at that very moment and there was no other option available. Made worse is that Lysandre still refused to compromise even after everyone offered a chance of co-operation and understanding, and he instead chooses to use the Ultimate Weapon on everyone in the area. Overall, it was not a lack of understanding, but Team Flare's arrogance that brought their end upon themselves.]]

* BrokenStreak: This game ''loves'' to do this:
** First off, each of the new starter Pokémon does this. Delphox ended the common Fire / Fighting streak set for three straight generations, Greninja is the first Water-type FragileSpeedster, and Chesnaught is a Grass-type mammal (literally a Chestnut) starter instead of a reptile.
** The two box legendaries are Fairy and Dark/Flying, ending two generations of dual-type dragon mascots.
** This is the first generation to lack a trio of related legendary Pokémon with Base Stat Totals of 580.
** These are the first generation-entry games where, not only are previous-generation starters and legendaries obtainable normally, but they're even in the regional Pokédex.
** In the first five generations, there was always a Ghost-type in the Elite Four or Gym Leader lineup (Agatha, Morty, Phoebe, Fantina, and Shauntal). Ghost is absent from both in Kalos.
** [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Cynthia]], who has appeared in some form since her debut either as an event cameo or a BonusBoss, is a no show this time around.
** The current pseudo-legendary zig-zags this. It's a dragon, but it's single-typed, is more defensive than offensive, and also has two regular abilities instead of one.
** After many games of being unable to legally learn Flare Blitz, Flareon ''finally'' gets it this gen at Level 45.
** The games' release marks a departure from how Nintendo usually does things, being the first games that were released in an international format rather than one for each region.
** Every previous Ice-type Gym Leader gave out the seventh badge. Here, Wulfric is the ''eighth'' Gym Leader instead.
*** On that note, every previous Rock-type Gym Leader gave out the first badge. Here, Grant is the ''second'' Gym Leader.
** Despite having both the Voltorb line and the Foongus line, there aren't any {{Chest Monster}}s.
** These games come right after ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' when there were remakes before a new generation since Generation III (which incidentally enough, was about due for a remake)
** One of the Elite Four specialized in Dragon types. Previous Master trainers [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Lance]] was the Pokémon Champion before he lost the title, [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Clair]] is his cousin and the hardest gym of the second Gen and just as badass as Lance. [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Drake]] is the Fourth and final Elite Four member of the third Gen and a BadassGrandpa sailor, [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 Drayden]] again a BadassGrandpa (Though depending on the version, you may have to fight his granddaughter instead) in a nice suit that leads the take action Gym leaders of Unova. Drasna the Elite Four member of this gen, is an EyesAlwaysClosed nice lady that is just ''pleasant'' and kind but still has some mons that could wipe out teams.
** This game also introduced more than one family of dual-typed Pokémon that was part Ghost (Pumpkaboo and Phantump, both Ghost & Grass). Until now, all dual-typed Pokémon that were part Ghost were all unique.
** Vanivile Pathway, or Route 1 is one of the shortest routes in the series and is also the only initial route without any tall grass.
** With the announcement of VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon, this marks the first time in the series where an UpdatedRerelease or [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 sequel]] is not released for a generation. As such, Zygarde is only third legendary within its trio not to be featured on a cover art.

* DevelopersForesight:
** If you don't have enough money to pay the cabs, the drivers get angry and battle you. There are several different designs with several different dialogues even though almost no one will be short enough on cash for this to happen.
** The Pokémon Storage System gives you a maximum of 30 boxes during the main game, but after catching the version legendary, it's increased to 31. Why? Well, in the ''incredibly'' unlikely event you've managed to fill all 30 boxes by that point, you'll still have someplace to put your new legendary (or, more likely, whoever you sent to the PC to make room for it)
** The player character can stand in the spot that the Mystery Gift woman would appear in a Pokémon Center before he or she redeems a Mystery Gift. The woman will cleanly appear upon loading the game one square left of where she would usually be. If the player redeems the Diancie event, the following cutscene proceeds without glitches.
** There's placeholder data in case Nintendo somehow forgets to give to give a Wonder Card its event title.
** Hacking the game allows you to obtain the exact same Floette [[spoiler: AZ had]], complete with the fact that it has its very own signature move based upon the flower it's holding. Normally, it simply looks like a darker-colored shiny Floette, but it does have its own unique Shiny form if you were to hack it to be like that.

* ChurchOfHappyology: Team Flare are an obvious one, to the point where it is surprising Nintendo allowed it. They have to pay large sums of money to join the group, describe themselves as scientists despite bearing no resemblance to the scientist class, are heard trying to memorize mantras like "There are no real absolutes", seem completely convinced that the group is the only future and everyone else is doomed. The members are described as being cult-like early on - one NPC even says that a friend of a friend turned joined the group and went out for lunch with him and wouldn't stop talking about it being the future (which is something that happens often in real life).They also speak in very childish manners like "I'm mad now" which is something church members always say when they feel someone is attacking their religion. Their main aspirations are invading all the big companies and historic buildings, and blackmailing people into selling them to them. Also, the battle sprites for them have them looking like they are hypnotized and brainwashed. Previous Team Rockets were obvious takes on Mafia groups, but Team Flare is something noticeably different.

* ActionMom: The player's mother, Grace, is a former Rhyhorn racer, instead of just a homemaker like previous versions. Her Rhyhorn is even outside your house, and it's known the player since they were born! Professor Sycamore chose them to help him out because he heard that she had just moved into the region.

* BystanderSyndrome: You are able to invoke this trope in Geosenge Town [[spoiler: after Team Flare activates the Ultimate Weapon that not only is going cause a lot of destruction, but will absorb all the life force of the residents in Route 10]], where Phil the Photo Guy still offers his services. Yes, you can take a picture in ''front of'' ''[[spoiler:a goddamn world-ending nuke]]''. Overlaps with LostForever, since [[spoiler:the Ultimate Weapon gets destroyed. If you want that picture, you ''have'' to take it before completing Team Flare's secret lab]].

* LostForever
** Like the 4th and 5th generations, there are periodic events allowing players to acquire rare Pokémon and/or items, although you are actually allowed to trade them outside of the global trade center; the first XY event is a special Torchic with its hidden ability ''and'' possessing the item needed to unlock Blaziken's Mega Evolution (which is otherwise unobtainable in-game). Just like with most event Pokémon, many players are trading the Torchic to another game copy, then starting the game over to stockpile more and more Torchics with the Mega Stone.
** The stones for the Geosenge Town Photo Spot. Before the event happens, you can take a photo in front of the stones. Once the ultimate weapon sprouts, you can't get a photo in front of the rocks anymore, and once it's [[spoiler:destroyed, the photo backdrop will be a smoldering crater instead]].
