** In "The Punchy Pokémon", Ash and his friends encounter a seemingly-wild Hitmonchan, and Ash decides to capture it.\\
'''You'd expect:''' That Ash would have Pikachu use its tried-and-true Electric attacks to accomplish this goal.\\
'''Instead:''' He has Pikachu take on Hitmonchan (an opponent three times its size) in a ''boxing match''.\\
'''The result:''' Pikachu is completely outmatched. The one hit it lands only serves to anger Hitmonchan, who proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle utterly clobber]] Pikachu.\\
'''Even worse:''' Neither Misty nor Brock see the fundamental flaws in Ash's plan. It isn't until it becomes clear how laughably outmatched Pikachu is that Misty tells Ash to make it stop.

'''Instead:''' She doesn't, so when her editor-in-chief reveals himself to be evil and burns her report, there's nothing she can do about it. She later berates herself for being so excited over the info that she wasn't thinking straight.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''
** During your raid on [[spoiler:Aether Paradise]], you come face to face with [[spoiler:Faba]], who'd taken extreme measures to try and keep you from getting to [[spoiler:Lillie, Nebby, and Lusamine]]. At a certain point, he and several [[spoiler:employees]] are in front of a locked door.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' [[spoiler:Faba]] to leave the key in a safe place and not mention where it is.\\
'''Instead:''' When Hau asks him if he has it, he not only says where it is, but reveals he has it on him. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Hau even calls him out on this.]]
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky]]'':
** You're sent to gather Perfect Apples, though you're ambushed by Team Skull who takes all the Perfect Apples.\\
'''You'd expect''' Chatot to give you a chance to explain what happened.\\
'''Instead''' Chatot gripes you out without giving you a chance to explain what happened and sends you to bed without eating, and later in the game, he complains that you wouldn't be able to do the job properly.\\
'''Bonus Idiocy''': Team Skull show up later with a Perfect Apple they saved for Wigglytuff. Yet no one questions where they could have gotten it.
** [[spoiler:Grovyle is a Pokemon from a BadFuture whose objective is to collect the Time Gears and bring them to Temporal Tower to prevent TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]]\\
'''You'd expect:''' [[spoiler:Grovyle to politely explain who he is and what he's doing, earning the cooperation of the authorities.]]\\
'''Instead:''' [[spoiler:He runs around stealing the Time Gears and gets labeled a criminal.]]
** [[spoiler:Dusknoir is a Pokemon from the same BadFuture whose objective is capture Grovyle so that TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt can continue unhindered. He eventually tricks the heroes into aiding him and manages to capture Grovyle.]]\\
'''You'd expect:''' [[spoiler:Dusknoir to thank everyone for their help, take Grovyle back to the future, close the time portal, and promptly slit his throat.]]\\
'''Instead:''' [[spoiler:He kidnaps the player and the partner, ties them up, and has his Sableye minions dispose of them.]]\\
'''The Result:''' [[spoiler:The three of them escape, Grovyle reveals the truth, and they all get back home and thwart Dusknoir and Primal Dialga's plans.]]
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'', before the mine dungeon early in the game, three Drilbur try to prevent you and your partner from entering, when your partner suddenly says, without any kind of warning, [[LookBehindYou "Hey, all you Drilbur! Look at that! A delicious-looking Apple tree just sprouted up over there!"]]\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The Drilbur to say that they are not going to fall for the trick, which would render your partner's trick completely useless.\\
'''Instead:''' The Drilbur decide to just take a look, and they let their guard drop.\\
'''Result:''' You and your partner enter the mine.
** During the first field trip at the school, you are with your partner and Goomy. At the end, you and your partner realize Goomy is missing.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Your partner to say, "Hey, InsertNameHere, let's go and get Goomy."\\
'''Instead:''' Your partner, eager to have their team win, goes on ahead without Goomy, and you are left with no choice but to follow.\\
'''Result:''' Goomy gets left behind, and your partner is scolded.
** And in Heart Gold and Soul Silver, in the Team Rocket hideout in Mahogany Town, there's a scientist in the first floor (the one with the Persian statues) with three Magnemites. After you defeat him, you can talk to him. What does he say?\\
'''You'd expect:''' That the scientist would just mention what Team Rocket has in store involving the Radio Tower. Or something involving their plan, ''anything'' except...\\
'''Instead:''' He tells you that the computer on his desk can turn off the alarms set in the Persian statues, and for you to not push it. But, being the hero that you are, of course you're gonna do that...unless you prefer to pass the statues anyway to fight the Grunts for EXP.
** In Diamond, Pearl and Platinum you have team Galactic. Not a single grunt, whole team. At one single point in the games, their Eterna City hideout. First is a grunt who wants a donation of Pokemon.\\
'''You'd expect''': Since they're trying to look good, he would politely tell the player to return when he'll decide to donate for Team Gallactic\\
'''Instead''': He tells the player to "scram", yelling at him for wasting his time, losing his chance for any donations he would get from anybody the kid could know.\\
Second is the way whole team wants to show you which way to the top.\\
'''You'd expect''': Not guarding at all, or guarding both of the stairs, at all three floors of the building.\\
'''Instead''': There are signs talking about "the right way leading you to success" or something, obviously showing right way. A sign near every single good staircase. Talking about right way.

'''You'd Expect:''' He'd pick one of the calmer, docile ones he has who'll listen to him.\\

** Also in that episode, Samurai comes across Ash while he's bust trying to catch a Weedle.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That Samurai would let Ash finish the capture before challenging him to a battle.\\
'''Instead:''' He attacks Ash with his broadsword, allowing Weedle to escape and bring back the Beedrill. [[NeverMyFault And then he blames Ash for the ensuing attack.]]



** '''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.

'''You'd Expect:''' Ash and Samurai would realize that there would be no way either of them could win by just hardening, since Metapod can only use that and would decide to call it draw.\\

Added DiffLines:

** In "Challenge of the Samurai", Ash and Samurai decide to battle. Ash uses Pidgeotto and Metapod, while Samurai uses Pinsir and Metapod. Eventually, the two of them are both using Metapod.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Ash and Samurai would realize that there would be no way either of them could win by just hardening, since Metapod can only use that and would decide to call it draw.\\
'''Or:''' Wait, Ash has a Pikachu. He could just use it to battle.\\
'''Instead:''' Neither Ash nor Samurai realize either of those options and spend hours battle with no result until a swarm of Beedrill show up, causing it to end the battle.
** In the same episode, just after the battle ended, Samurai calls back his Metapod to keep it away from the Beedrill and get out of the swarm. Ash wants to know what type of pokémon a Beedrill is.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Ash would return his Metapod into its pokéball first and then look up Beedrill using his Pokédex.\\
'''Instead:''' Ash looks up Beedrill using his Pokédex first. This allows a Beedrill enough time to snatch Ash's Metapod while he's not looking.

'''Instead:''' 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...
