** Regardless of their bumblingness as well as their incopetence, the Team Rocket Trio are still criminals and have been repeatedtly attempt to kidnap numerous Pokemons. And they keep doing this OncePerEpisode.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Ash to realize that as long as they are around, Pokemons can get kidnapped and people could be harmed, thus he decides to have Pikachu paralyze them and hand them over to Officer Jenny. That way, they won't ever pester Ash and his companions ever again.\\

** In "Candid Camerupt", the group is having a friendly battle with the Winstrate family. Max is up and he's up against the youngest family member, Vivi, who he has a crush on; he's borrowing one of Ash's Pokemon and wants to go easy on her.\\

'''Instead:''' He picks [[JerkAss Corphish]]. Said Pokemon doesn't listen and beats up her Marill. [[PyrrhicVictory While Max won the match, it caused Vivi to hate him and ruining any chance he had with her]].

'''Taking the Stupidity Even Further:''' [[StopHavingFunGuys The kind of trainer Paul was meant to represent]] would ''know better'' than to send into an important match a Pokémon that clearly needs bench time, professional opinion or otherwise. Furthermore, anyone with even a shred of empathy would know that throwing a Pokemon against something it flat-out fears is more likely to petrify it than to trip SuperMode. And yet, despite [[StupidEvil such flagrant disregard for both his Pokémon and his teammate, especially in front of such a massive audience]], [[KarmaHoudini Paul was not reprimanded one whit, either on-the-spot or in hindsight]]. Were it not for his [[DracoInLeatherPants leather pants]] and [[CharacterShilling the author's praise for him]], this would be the moment that [[MoralEventHorizon destroyed any sympathy he deserved]].

'''Even Worse''': During the battle, he has Snivy use Attract, which doesn't work against Pokemon of the same gender, which is a fact he needs pointed out to him immediately afterwards.

** Still in the same vein, the fact everyone uses their Pokemon to fight the monster.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Everyone tossing every single Pokemon they have at it (except for Ash's group sans Greninja and Pikachu, and whom had been slaughtered by Lysandre's Mega Gyarados).\\

** During Ash's gym battle against Elesa, his Palpitoad is knocked out by her Emolga. This creates a problem for Ash, as Emolga's typing (Electric/Flying) gives it an advantage over most of his team (read: Oshawott, Tranquill, Snivy, Scraggy, and Swadloon.) He suddenly has a EurekaMoment and rushes to the PC.\\
'''You'd Expect''': For Ash to send out [[DishingOutDirt Roggenrola]], who has an advantage over [[BlowYouAway Emolga]].\\
'''Instead''': He sends out [[GreenThumb Snivy]] instead, who as mentioned above, has a type disadvantage against Emolga. Snivy is promptly beaten by Emolga, leaving Ash to fight Elesa's remaining team with just Pikachu.\\
'''Even Worse''': During the battle, he has Snivy use Attract, which doesn't work against Pokemon of the same gender, which is a fact he needs pointed out to him immediately afterwards.

** Alain wants to fight Ash and Ash-Greninja at their full power.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' He'd ask them at any time for a battle once they are ready.\\
'''Instead:''' He must totally steamroll 8 Gym Leaders in no time and every other Kalos League participant to fight him!
** The reanimated Megalith versus the "Kalos Defense Force".\\
'''You'd Expect:''' A large army of trainers and police forces showing up to put a stop to it for good.\\
'''Instead:''' Only Gym Leaders arrive as reinforcements, strangely leaving out fan favorites Siebold, Drasna, and Wikstrom from the action along with every other implied anime-only Gym Leader.

'''You'd Also Expect:''' Somebody--''anybody''--to assume the worst and put the match on hold while they dispatch search-and-rescue teams.\\
'''Instead:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Nobody. Does. ''Anything]].'' Thousands of people just sit on their hands while Ash goes through insane amounts of crap to fight his way out of Team Rocket's clutches and return to the stadium. By the time he does, half his team has been exhausted.\\

'''You'd Expect:''' Ash to quite reasonably remind Everett that he has a League Championship battle coming up that he can't afford to miss. After all, promise or no promise, Everett is being unreasonable in insisting on a battle right then and there; he can't reasonably expect Ash to keep his promise when he sets up a situation where anyone with common sense would decline to do so. (Lying in wait to intercept Ash just before a crucial battle, rather than challenging Ash at a more reasonable time.) For all Ash knows, Everett could quite conceivably be a saboteur in league with a rival, out to ruin Ash's chances.\\

** In "All Hail the Ice Battlefield", Ash is challenging the Snowbelle Gym, and he hasn't yet learnt to control the Ash-Greninja technique.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Either Ash to perfect the Ash-Greninja technique before challenging the Gym, or for him to rely on tried-and-true methods to battle.\\
'''Instead:''' He uses the Ash-Greninja technique but is still unable to control it. He passes out and loses the battle.
** In "A League of His Own", as Ash is headed to his first Kalos League Championship battle, he is challenged by Everett to an impromptu match and reminded of his promise to challenge the other trainer "next time".\\

** '''Instead:''' Ash chooses HonorBeforeReason and accepts the challenge. He avoids forfeiting his League battle by arriving at the last second, and is unable to use one of his most powerful Pokémon (Pikachu) He is fortunate that he wins the battle.

'''Insteas:''' He seems to be content with just blasting them off again, over and over like hundreds of times. You'd think Ash gets tired of them by now...
