** Every generation features at least one "[[InfinityMinusOneSword Sub-Legendary]]" trio that can be captured before the climax of the game. ''X and Y'' have no such sub-Legendaries; the only new Legendary Pokémon are the usual major trio of Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde. The closest thing to a sub-Legendary trio are the returning Legendary birds, but they're post-game, and only one of them appears (based on the chosen starter).
** While every other generation has an improved edition (be it an UpdatedRerelease or a set of {{sequel}}s) that adds more content and promotes a BonusBoss related to the mascot Legendaries to the focus of the story, Gen VI stands out by ''not'' having one at all. Zygarde gets new forms as most third Legendaries do, but [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon it'd have to wait another generation for them]].



* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: Xerneas and Yveltal, which resemble an X and a Y respectively. A third legendary Pokémon, Zygarde, roughly resembles a Z.

* BonusBoss: After becomng the Champion, the player can find the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, Zygarde, and one of the Legendary birds (depending on which Kalos starter was chosen). All of them appear at Level 70, being the highest-leveled wild Pokémon in the game.



* DugTooDeep: Terminus Cave is an abandoned coal mine that closed down a few years ago, due to rumors that a monster was living deep inside. After becoming the Champion, the player can explore the cave even deeper, and find the monster in question -- the Legendary Pokémon Zygarde (who is really a benevolent protector of Kalos' ecosystem).



** [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Mega Latias and Mega Latios]] were in the games' coding from day one. Despite what official sources say about Mega Stones from ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'' being incompatible with ''X and Y'', Latiasite and Latiosite can be transferred and will function normally.

** If you bring Hoopa to Parfum Palace and Volcanion to Lumiose Press, you'll find [=NPCs=] that talk about them (and since there are no in-game encounters for them akin to Liberty Garden in ''Black and White'', it's the only source for detailed lore on them). Very little indicates they have any real purpose there, and a player would most likely forget about those places entirely. It also doesn't help that there's no other reward for bringing them there.

** Zygarde's X Pokédex entry states that when Kalos' ecosystem falls into disarray, it appears and reveals its secret power.
*** Heck, Zygarde's existence in general. You find it randomly in a cave with only an NPC saying a "monster" is rumored to lurk inside hinting where it is. Just like how you find Giratina in Diamond and Pearl, and Kyurem in Black and White.

* VideoGameDelegationPenalty: You may choose to leave two of your Mons at the Pokémon Day Care. Pokémon in Day Care gain one experience point per every step the player takes. While its nice to have a Pokémon leveling-up while you simply walk around, there are several drawbacks to this method. For one, Pokémon in Day Care will not evolve. Two, if a Pokémon reaches a level where it can learn a new move, it will always learn that move; if the Pokemon already knows four moves, its first move will be forgotten and the new move will be placed last. This can lead to your Mons forgetting moves you wanted while learning moves you do not. Third, the Mon will not gain Effort Points as it would have if you leveled it up yourself through battle. This will leave it with somewhat lesser stats at higher levels than it would have had if you leveled it up yourself.

* RiddleMeThis: [[spoiler: The Lumiose Gym is made up of five floors; on the first four, Clemont's sister gives you a silhouette, and tells you to identify it by going to one of three trainers that matches. (It's a {{Homage}} to the anime's "Who's that Pokémon?" quip.) The correct trainer is much easier than the other two, and getting it right can get you to Clemont faster, but while the first two are easy, the third is harder (it's one of the three elemental monkeys), and with the fourth, she gives you ''three'' silhouettes that look very much alike (all are Pokémon that look like moths) and tells you to choose which is one is the one she names.]]

** Trades with [=NPC=]s no longer require you to have the requested Pokémon in your party, allowing you to trade Pokémon that are currently in your PC. A couple trades also don't request specific Pokémon, so you can trade whatever you want.
