* FanNickname: Abomasnow's name is often changed to Obamasnow (whether the intent is positive or negative depends on the nicknamer).

** Gen IV as a whole with Platinum. When Diamond/Pearl came out, they were the worst-regarded games in the series so far and were full of criticisms unique to the Gen (most notably the extremely slow pacing and the poor regional pokedex). Platinum completely overhauled the game, to the point that it's considered one of the best games in the franchise now, and Heart Gold/Soul Silver only cemented the popularity of Gen IV. Still, if those games hadn't been made this Gen would have been seen as a universal low point for the series.

* Thanks to [[ForMassiveDamage Stealth Rock]], majority of the Fire and Ice-types got hit hard with this competitively. Stealth Rock was a move that created a permanent stage hazard [[note]]Unless the opponent happened to know Rapid Spin.[[/note]] which would reduce a Pokemon's health upon entry. If the Pokemon happens to be ''weak'' against rock types, it take out 25% of their health. Dual Weaknesses would stack the damage.

** Waterfall. Prior to this generation, it is hated for being less powerful compared to Surf and is a redundant HM on a Pokémon's limited moveslot as one cannot use Waterfall without Surf but not vice-versa. This changed when it was classified as a Physical move and has a chance to flinch, giving it a chance to diverge from Surf. While the stronger Aqua Tail exists, Waterfall is generally considered the better option due to its perfect accuracy.

** Waterfall. Prior to this generation, it is hated for being less powerful compared to Surf and is a redundant HM on a Pokémon's limited moveslot as they're both the same type with near-identical power and one cannot use Waterfall in the overworld without Surf but not vice-versa. This changed when it was classified as a Physical move and has a chance to flinch, giving it a chance to diverge from Surf. While the stronger Aqua Tail exists, Waterfall is generally considered the better option for Physical Water-types due to its perfect accuracy.

** It's possible to [[https://youtu.be/zogZte1DHts?t=5m12s receive an accessory called "determination"]] from the masseuse in Veilstone City. In other words, [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} getting massaged fills your Pokémon with determination]].
