** Zoroark and by extension Zorua look uncannily similar to Oki from ''{{Okami}}''

The first half of the fifth generation of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. In this installment, Creator/GameFreak shakes up a number of series traditions: the player characters are older, the resident Professor (Juniper) is a woman, Pokémon Centers and Pokémon Marts have been merged into one building, there are ''no'' Generation I-IV Pokémon in the regional Pokédex, [=TMs=] can be used an infinite amount of times, there's no Game Corner or Safari Zone present, and the new Unova region isn't based on a region of Japan but on UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity (and a little NewJersey as well, with the sequels adding more New Jersey).

* ConvenientWeaknessPlacement: While not unusual for the series, particular note goes to how Elesa's gym plays with this. Many NPC's mention how Electric is weak to Ground-type pokemon, with Sandile being readily available south of the city Elesa's gym is part of. However, Elesa and some of her trainers make use of Emolga, which are immune to Ground-type moves unless struck with the Rock-type Smack Down first. This means that to make them vulnerble to Ground-type moves, it would be best to catch the Rock/Bug-type Dwebble, also readily available south of the gym. However, since it's a Bug type, it will be weak to Emolga's flying moves as the Emolga is weak to Dwebble's Rock-type moves. The actual best user for Smack Down available to you is Roggenrola, which would have been found near Nacrene City, two cities away... but the Player's recent acquirement of a Bike, combined with a series of long straight routes back to Nacrene, means getting back there very easy.

Added DiffLines:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: The move Smack Down is a Rock-type removes immunities to Ground-Type moves. Since this would only be useful against an opponent that has a weakness to Ground covered up by an immunity to Ground, this move is only really useful against an Electric or Poison Type opponent that is also part Flying or has Levitate. This makes it uniquely suited specifically to fight Elesa and her Electric/Flying Emolgas. In addition, since her Emolga's use of Volt Switch means she will be one of the few opponents to switch often, it makes her particularly vulnerable to Stealth Rock.

* BossInMookClothing: After beating the Elite Four, you can find Dragonite, Tyranitar, and Metagross in the certain areas of the wild.



* BossInMookClothing: In the post-game, you gain access to a location known as the Challenger's Cave. Aside from a few items, some higher leveled Pokémon from non-Unovan regions, and a few trainers, the place is nothing special on the surface. However, while going through the cave, you can encounter the trainer Veteran Shaun. He has a party of six, powerful Pokémon, including Gyarados, Excadrill, Gigalith, Druddigon, Crobat, and even Snorlax. All of which are probably about fifteen to twenty levels above your current party, assuming you dive right into the cave after beating the main story.

* SillyReasonForWar: It's eventually revealed that in Unova's distant past [[spoiler: the two brothers who controlled the legendary dragons]] destroyed it in a battle over what was arguably a ''theoretical debate on philosophy''—or, rather, they were fighting over whether it was better to live your life according to your ideals, or to live your life searching for the truth. The brothers weren't even fighting over ''specific'' ideals; they were just fighting over the ''concept'' of ideals themselves. The [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 sequel]] reveals that they were incited to war by their own ambitions, as anthropomorphized by another legendary Pokemon.
