* CompleteMonster: [[TheChessmaster Darkrai]] serves as the true BigBad, and is depicted as far more evil than [[DarkIsNotEvil Classical Darkrai]]. He was responsible for the collapsing of Temporal Tower that lead to the BadFuture, tortures an [[WouldHurtAChild innocent child]] with [[MindRape violent nightmares]] to lure out the PlayerCharacter and their partner, and makes several attempts to assassinate them so he can try his plans again. One of his most heinous acts involves trying to have the heroes [[DrivenToSuicide willingly commit suicide]] by tricking them into thinking their existence is threatening the space-time continuum due to TimeTravel shenanigans. A ManipulativeBastard par excellence, he has no regrets for his crimes and wishes nothing more than the [[OmnicidalManiac complete and utter destruction of the world]], just so he can rule the tattered remains.

** Quicksand Cave can be brutal for the first time through. Just like Northern Desert, there are two food sources in the dungeon, one of which being Grimy Food. Sandstorms regularily appear on floors, which allows Sandslash to avoid most of your moves because of Sand Veil. The other half of the dungeon, Quicksand Pit, is even worse, as past a certain points, Hippopotas start to show up, which means guaranteed sandstorms on each floor. And then at the end, you have to fight Mesprit, who despite being only level 18, hits surprisingly hard with her psychic type moves, which can also end up hitting even harder if you or your partner are Fighting-Types. Bringing lots of food and Reviver Seeds is key to getting through this dungeon without tearing your hair out.

** In ''Sky'', most evolutionary families get a 3-star exclusive item that, when in the inventory, has the Pokemon healed by damaging moves of a certain type, instead of taking damage. Said type is usually one that would deal super effective damage otherwise, but there are exceptions. One of such is the Bronzor evolutionary family, who get healed by Ghost-type moves, which dealt neutral damage to them. Fast-forward into Generation VI, and now Bronzor and Bronzong are indeed weak to Ghost-type moves thanks to the changes in the type chart.

* ScrappyLevel: Who in the hell thought the Aegis Cave challenge was a good idea? At some point in the after the end, your team will be required to go to a dungeon called Aegis Cave. To get through, you must solve three word puzzles by spelling out ICE, STEEL, and ROCK. In order to do this, you must go through each dungeon and fight multiple Unown who might drop a corresponding letter stone for you to spell these words with. ''Might''. You will inevitably have to go through each of these dungeons multiple times to get the correct letters. And this challenge is mandatory. Best part? If you want to go back to recruit the legendary golems, you have to spell out the words all over again. And you might not even recruit them on the first try. However, you can use the Wondermail Generator to get codes for jobs that will get these items. It's still annoying, but better then what you have to do otherwise.

** Treeshroud Forest. It's a very long forest with a variety of Pokemon types (mostly psychic) that hit HARD. And it's long but not as long as Hidden Land or Temporal Tower but it's different in the fact that it has 20 floors...And no Kanghastan Rock in the middle of it. You have to brave 20 floors of nonstop barrages of Pokemon and traps to the end. One can only hope that they still have items in their Kanghastan storage rock at the beginning of the forest, as they had just had the standard chain of dungeons without a visit to the Hubworld that they tend to have in the PMD series.

** Although both ''Explorers'' and ''Rescue Team'' were received about the same by critics (that is, lukewarm), most fans agree that ''Explorers'' has a better storyline and character development. 'Rescue Team'' had a decent, if slightly unoriginal premise of natural disasters and a rather bland supporting cast. Then ''Explorers'' arrived, with the player's status as a human and their own character being far more important, a more fleshed-out and unique supporting cast, and a wider variety of Pokémon as prominent characters even with the expected focus on Sinnoh Pokémon.

The fact that the bond between you and your partner doesn't dissolve after the credits play helps a lot too.
** Doubly so for the Sky version, which averts the OneGameForThePriceOfTwo elements from Time and Darkness, brings more starter Pokémon, adds a handful of side-stories for more character depth, and introduced a few aspects that, much to the chagrin of the fanbase, weren't used again in future sequels, like the Spinda Bar and the Lookalike items.

* DemonicSpiders: Purugly in the Hidden Land. They have Fury Swipes, which is already annoying when you consider multi-strike moves are {{Game Breaker}}s, and Swagger, a confusion-inducing move that boosts your attack so you're likely to miss or hit your allies.

** Primal/Dark Dialga is widely remembered among the fanbase, particularly after the release of ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'', which introduced Primal Groudon and Kyogre (Primal in both versions, as oppose to English only), as this opened up the thought of the cover legends of the next set of remakes in line - the Sinnoh games - having the Primal forms from this game.[[note]]Primal Palkia doesn't exist, but the fanart alone speaks volumes.[[/note]]

%%* MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler: Dusknoir]] and Darkrai certainly qualify.

to:

%%* * MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler: Dusknoir]] MASSIVE spoilers.
**[[spoiler:Dusknoir. Pursuing the player and Grovyle into the past, he poses as a friendly explorer using his knowledge of the future in order to pick up information. He successfully deceives Treasure Town into helping him capture Grovyle, thereby dooming the future to paralysis, and even drags the amnesic player back to the future just in case they regain their memory (this one is more implied). Once Grovyle, the player, and the partner escape, Dusknoir allows them to find Celebi, intending to capture her once she reveals herself, even going as far as to bring Primal Dialga to accompany him, and the party only barely escape him. Despite his ruined reputation, he lies in wait in the past in the Hidden Land, and almost captures the party again, forcing them to slow him down with his WeaksauceWeakness and Grovyle to sacrifice himself by dragging them both back to the future. Once back there, as revealed in ''Sky'', he plots to GrandTheftMe Grovyle, a plan he pulls off almost flawlessly until the conscience he'd developed convinces him to stop.]]
** Bar none, [[spoiler:Darkrai]]. Their gambits are utterly ridiculous, so let's recap. [[spoiler:Goal, create a world of darkness to rule. Step 1, sabotage Temporal Tower, worked flawlessly to the point of occurring in one timeline. Grovyle and the player tried to stop it,
and Darkrai certainly qualify.attacks them within the Passage of Time, severely limiting their plan when it gave the player amnesia and transformed them into a Pokémon. Despite this, they still fix time. Plan 2, create a the world of darkness by distorting space. Problem: Space works differently (it doesn't drive Palkia crazy like time did for Dialga), and Palkia averts TheGodsMustBeLazy. Solution: blame the player and partner, who genuinely distort space with their presence, thus getting Palkia on their tails. When his ruse is revealed, he retreats to Dark Crater, and puts the player in an illusion to convince them to join him. When that fails, he revels an army of six other Pokémon to help him. Then when THAT fails, he has a dimension hole ready for a getaway, though unfortunately for him, Palkia finally caught him]].



* PlayerPunch: The ending of Special Episode 2 in ''Sky'', ''Igglybuff the Prodigy''. Igglybuff has befriended his loyal, trustworthy master (a retired explorer), they've explored and found heaps of treasure. Then, after they beat a remote dungeon, Igglybuff's friends and parents turn up to reveal that [[spoiler: Igglybuff's mentor, Armaldo, is actually a B-rank outlaw. You can practically see Igglybuff's world ending as Armaldo's taken into police custody.]]
** [[spoiler:Can be considered a BittersweetEnding as well, due to Armaldo's changes in his behavior hinting that he legitimately wants to clean his slate at the end, after spending so much time with a child like Igglybuff. The ending of the chapter all but spells it out.]]

* ThatOneBoss: Palkia can be troublesome too, if he feels like spamming Spacial Rend. It also hits the whole party, and unlike Dialga's Roar of Time, he doesn't have to spend a turn recharging.
** Dialga can count too. though he has the turn-recharging drawback, it hardly comes into play if his Roar of Time can ''outright'' kill either one or all of your party members at full health.

** Dialga can count too. though he FinalBoss Dialga. Roar of Time has the turn-recharging drawback, but it hardly comes into play if his Roar of Time can ''outright'' kill either one or all of your party members at full health. Then there's his Intimidate IQ skill, which delays your attacks, and since he's got a ''lot'' of HP, you'll desperately need them.



* TierInducedScrappy: Cresselia is perhaps the worst when it comes to this. Not only do you have to escort her to the end of the dungeon (which contains tons and tons of lava for her to float over and burn herself with), but she also takes place in the final battle against [[spoiler:Darkrai]].
*** That being said, she at least has the Lava Evader IQ Skill, so she won't go onto the lava on her own.
%%* ToughActToFollow: ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity'' was always going to have a hard time coming after this one.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The role of Giratina. You would think that [[spoiler: Giratina would be the game's TrueFinalBoss, what with being the Pokemon stronger than both Dialga and Palkia, as well as having a pre-established relationship with Dialga, Palkia, and Arceus.]] Obviously, if the game were to have a greater villain, Giratina would be the one, right? Nope, [[spoiler: Giratina is a mere treasure-guarder, while Darkrai, a lesser legendary with the same stat total as Goodra, no relation to Dialga/Palkia/Arceus, and no plausible way to overpower the likes of Dialga is the TrueFinalBoss.]]
** In fact, when you recruit him Giratina and talk to him in Spinda's Cafe, he's a [[DarkIsNotEvil perfectly friendly guy and more than willing to help out in your adventures.]] Not exactly Ultimate Evil material...
