* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Due to the increased space allowed by being on a console instead of a handheld, the soundtrack is much more grandiose than in any other ''Pokémon'' game.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X67YWv5C6qQ Miror B.'s Retro Groove]]. It's probably the most well-remembered theme from the game, and it's sure to [[EarWorm stay stuck in your head]] for quite a while after listening.
** Few songs have ever utilized a harmonica quite as effectively as the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0HmO8MaCVo Shadow Pokémon Lab theme]].
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um0pkcPFCLs final boss theme]] is probably the most epic theme in the history of the series.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In series canon the entire game and its sequel are one, as they have never been mentioned in any other games and both games have very noticeable quirks and are set in a WorldOfHam.

** In the context of the game, the encounter with Mirakle B. He's a LoonyFan of Miror B. who randomly shows up to battle you if you go all the way through Pyrite Cave to Miror B.'s hideout after beating Dakim ([[LostForever but before beating the FinalBoss]]). Beating him gets you nothing, and unlike with Miror B., you don't even get an easy way out of the area.

** A very light example: All the trainers in the game, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard save for two towards the end,]] use Pokemon that were technically available to you when the game was released. So, you'll see evolutions or pre- evolutions of Shadow Pokemon all over the place before you can snag them, sometimes way before. You'll see Spinarak all over the place, including one in the first city, but you get to snag Ariados just about halfway through.

Colossseum uses Pokémon that are available in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' plus all the Gen II ones, including ones that evolve from Gen I Pokémon that are unavailable in ''Ruby and Sapphire''.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Wes, the SilentProtagonist. He almost all of the game frowning, save for his introduction, where he grins wickedly upon stealing the Snag Machine and wrecking Team Snagem's hideout. His motivation and purpose prior to meeting Rui are complete mysteries.

** Miror B. was popular enough that he was the only Cipher admin to reappear in the sequel.

** Miror B. was popular enough that he was and his bodyguards Trudly and Folly are the only Cipher admin members from ''Colosseum'' to reappear in the sequel.



** The Shadow Pokémon Lab has a very linear layout but has two major annoyances. First there is only one PC where you can save which is located at the beginning and no heal machine at all; then there is the other problem of cipher peons dropping in (literally) and ambushing you when your Pokémon are weak.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The Plusle that Duking gives you is a JokeCharacter in-game. However, if the developers had made Minun obtainable, as DummiedOut text from Nett suggests they had at one point planned to, it could have been a rather good option. The abilities of Plusle and Minun, Plus and Minus respectively, raise the Special Attack of both Pokémon if they are allied with each other. Considering this game is all Double Battles, it's rather frustrating that they didn't end up including Minun.

** For how heavily they were featured in Wes's backstory and how prominent they were in the opening scenes, Team Snagem really isn't featured in the game all that much until post-game. In fact they aren't even mentioned once you get more involved in Cipher's activities.

** Ein deserves a special mention. He is immensely popular with fangirls.

** [[spoiler: There are plenty of fans who would've preferred the menacing and much more interesting Nascour to have been the true head of Cipher to the somewhat flat Evice who's reveal was somewhat shoehorned in]].
