** Wigglytuff's Guild side-steps this trope by only ever showing apples and berries being eaten during the nightly dinner scenes. Apparently you and your partner can survive on an all-plant diet no matter what species you are (even if you picked Totodile or Meowth).

* OverwhelmingException: Unlike other lookalike items, the "mix elixir" does exactly what its related item does and restores all of your PP! As long as you're the right kind of Pokemon, of course. Such as Linoone. In fact, [[JokeItem nobody but Linoone]].

* DevelopersForesight: Should you lose in a boss battle you were supposed to beat to advance in the story, the events that unfold them are different. Most of the time that means bosses skip their introduction, but it varies. [[spoiler: For example, in "Igglybuff the Prodigy", Igglybuff would believe Armaldo likes traps because they fell into the same trap they did before... except they already knew it was there. Similarly, in the graduation dungeon in the post-game story, Wigglytuff is forced to shove the player and the partner into the pit just as they were going to avoid it - this goes in tandem with everyone involved in the graduation battle ([[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Except for Wigglytuff]]) [[VisibleSilence not saying anything if you talk to them before returning]]]].

Similarly, in the graduation dungeon in the post-game story, Wigglytuff is forced to shove the player and the partner into the pit just as since they were going to already know about it and would logically avoid it - this if given the chance.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Chatot claims that no criminal, no matter how hardened, would ever dream of stealing a Time Gear. Indeed, even the morally-questionable Team AWD (in ''Explorers of Sky'') acknowledges that it's crossing a line, and settle for discovering the Ditto gaurdian in the Time Gear's stead.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Dusknoir, [[spoiler: at least at first. It turns out that he IS evil and is one of the main enforcers of Primal Dialga, although he does switch back to this trope towards the very end of his special episode.]]
** Team AWD qualifies, at least in the present day. Although Weavile is a bit of a bitch, they are overall relatively pleasant to the hero and partner and talk about Zero Isle to them. Further supported by the fact that they hang around Treasure Town and the guild just fine, and that they would very likely have been apprehended already if they were genuinely up to no good.
** Banette and Skorupi in Igglybuff's special episode. They're described as bullies and somewhat mean, but they ''do'' care for Igglybuff's safety when he repeatedly goes into the Murky Forest and even follow Magnezone and Nidoking along with the rest of Igglybuff's friends and family to make sure he's safe.

** At least Grovyle [[ApologeticAttacker apologizes]] to Uxie and Mesprit when he takes the Time Gears and to the player and partner when knocking them out. [[spoiler: Grovyle later turns out to be a good guy on a mission to stop the planet's paralysis. He needs the Time Gears to do so, and while he doesn't want to hurt anyone he will if he has to.]]


Added DiffLines:

** In the future, the player [[spoiler: notes how they feel they've been here before losing their memories. Soon after, it is revealed that they're from the future and Grovyle was their partner on their original mission, which is to stop the planet's paralysis.]]

* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Subverted. Even though the player character and partner are fully aware that setting the future right will cause the player character to be erased from time, they still continue to fight for the better future. However, since Dialga's grateful your team restored his sanity, he allows the player character to exist again.]]

** Right before your team reaches [[spoiler: Temporal Tower]], you get hit by a big slew of plot twists. [[spoiler: Dusknoir corners you and your team, and after a fight, reveals that once you save the future, you and Grovyle will cease to exist. As a result, once the world is saved, your partner will be alone again. And if that's not enough, Grovyle gives you the time gears and sacrifices himself by dragging Dusknoir back into the future.]]
** [[spoiler: Surprisingly, there's one after beating the final boss! Now that the future is saved, you are starting to vanish from existance. Your partner learns about this and begs you to stay, but you can't. The game ends with the partner leaving Temporal Tower on his/her own. However, after the credits, Dialga brings your character back.]]

* PaperThinDisguise: [[spoiler:"The Grandmaster of all things bad" and his minions (actually the rest of the Explorers Guild) is a {{justified|Trope}} example as the fight against them was supposed to take place in the dark, and only Bidoof uncovering the trap hole revealed the truth behind it. Outside of [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Wigglytuff]], none of the guild members manage to pretend being someone else without {{Suspiciously Specific Denial}}s after being found out - even if you lose the fight, only Wigglytuff (who has to shove the player and the partner into the trap so that you don't skip the boss fight), Bidoof (who wasn't involved in the fight) and the vendor guild members even try to talk with you, the others only showing VisibleSilence.]]

* PreSacrificeFinalGoodbye: A non-lethal example when [[spoiler: Grovyle takes Dusknoir back to the future for good]]. Despite sustaining significant injuries in battle and in the cutscene, he still has time to give the player and partner a motivational speech [[spoiler: without letting Dusknoir free]].
