* RougeAnglesOfSatin: A Team Flare Grunt in their hideout says "If you think we're going to let you join Team Flare after this, you've got another '''think''' coming!"

* GenreSavvy: Lumiose City Gym is a 'quiz Gym': a question is asked, three answers are given, and the player battles the Trainer corresponding to their answer. Ace Trainer Mathis on the fourth floor speculates that the player "did not choose Pansage as an answer so much as [they] chose [him] to battle with" - because any player worth their Poké Balls is going to battle every Trainer in the Gym for the LevelGrinding, even if it makes them look like an idiot who doesn't know their Pokédex.
** Many Gym Leaders and Elite Four members have a Pokémon on their team that has a secondary type that gives it an advantage over the weaknesses of the gym's specialty type such as Bug specialist Viola having a Bug/'''Water''' Pokémon; even better, this Pokémon often comes out first. Alternatively they will have a Pokémon with a move that covers weaknesses.



** A GenreSavvy example: one of the Team Flare grunts in [[spoiler:the Kalos Power Plant]] parks himself at the end of a one tile-wide path and refuses to move after you beat him, forcing you to go the entire way around and through every grunt in the building.

** Viola can catch quite a few people by surprise, that are expecting to solo a Bug-type gym with Fennekin. Her first Pokémon is a Surskit (a Bug/''Water''-type), [[GenreSavvy who not only carries a Water attack but a move that weakens Fire-type moves]].

* CharacterCustomiztion: For the first time, the appearance of the player character can be changed. Along with name and gender the character's skin color can be changed and then their clothes can be changed at boutiques and their hair style at salons. A new stat for the player character was created called Style to make use of this feature.

* EasterEgg:
** There is an ordinary-looking unmarked building located in Lumiose City. The first and third floors are normal, and full of the usual optimistic people. If the player goes to the second floor, however, the will suddenly be unable to move and the screen with start to flash. As it flashes, they can see a ghost that resembles a Hex Maniac standing behind them. The ghost will then float away, while saying "You're not the one". This ghost only appears the first time the player enters the floor, and never again. No mention is made of this girl other than in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyandSapphire Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'', in which a similar girl appears standing inside Mount Pyre. She makes the exact same statement, though she says "Ah..." after saying the phrase.
** If you go to Lumiose Station and look behind the time table sign, you can read a strange message that says "I'm going to go for help. Wait in the usual place". Who is going to go for what help, where is the "usual place", and who is the message addressed to?

** Alternatively, using only the new Pokémon introduced in this generation. Your limit of choice in Pokémon then goes from a whopping 450 to a measily 69-70, many of which have JackOfAllStats. Good luck.

* AuthorAppeal: Lots of trips were made to France for research in preparation for the games. This is due to the fact that Japanese people have a [[ForeignCultureFetish great fascination]] with France and French culture in general (So much so that Japanese tourists may end up getting a psychological disorder, known as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_syndrome Paris Syndrome]], just from the culture shock of the actual France not fitting their idealized image of France). Note that the tourist trainer classes are intentionally based off the JapaneseTourist.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Subtle example, One of the Pokédex entries give an aversion to InfantImmortality, and much like Yamask, other Pokémon are born from the spirits of dead humans (one of them from those of ''dead children'') [[spoiler:AZ's backstory, meanwhile, could easily be on par with ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' when it comes to video game {{Tear Jerker}}s.]]
