* VindicatedByHistory: Most fans these days appreciate the games and Game Freak for understandably changing the often slapdash code of the previous generations into something more manageable, while introducing new mechanics that improved battles. Thankfully, many fans rejoiced when the news came that remakes were made, ''Pokémon Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire''.

* VindicatedByHistory: At the time of their release, ''Ruby'' and ''Sapphire'' were polarizing for making significant changes to the game mechanics and for only a handful of earlier Pokémon being available without trading with then-unreleased titles. Most fans these days appreciate the games and Game Freak for understandably changing the often slapdash code of the previous generations into something more manageable, while introducing new mechanics that improved battles. Thankfully, many fans rejoiced when the news came that remakes were made, ''Pokémon Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire''.

*** Makes the Dark-type Elite Four trainer an easy breeze. Makes the Ghost-type Elite Four trainer an easy breeze, because Hariyama is capable of learning dark-type moves, such as Knock Off. Makes the Ice-type Elite Four trainer an easy breeze. Makes for a good alternative against the Hoenn Champion due to Steven Stone using Pokémon that have some rock and steel-typings apart from Claydol.

But even for Claydol, you'll probably still be running Knock Off to use against it.

Added DiffLines:

** The "Ranger" class of trainers, who became popular enough to get [[VideoGame/PokemonRanger a spinoff to themselves]].

*** One of the reports you find deeper in Sea Mauville reveals what "Infinity Energy" is. It's derived from [[spoiler:[[PoweredByAForsakenChild the life-force of Pokémon]], in the same way as [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY AZ's Ultimate Weapon]].]] And then you find an empty bottle of [[spoiler:Seviper Extract energy drink]] in another room, to drive the point home...

** Getting the Garchompite requires you to capture 1000 Secret Base flags. You can only capture a base's flag once a day, so unless you have multiple other bases installed in your game or you have Secret Base Pals who has a chance of giving you free flags when you talk to them, getting all of those flags will take a long time.

Added DiffLines:

* CounterpartComparison: Blaziken has compared to some fire-using FightingGame characters due to its Fire/Fighting typing, such as [[VideoGame/FZero Captain Falcon]] (bird motif and speed-boosting ability) and [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ken Masters]] ({{Shotoclone}} moves and a Ryu-like counterpart in Lucario).

** [[spoiler:Zinnia. In the second battle with her, she has her own unique battle theme and five powerful Dragon-types... which are all rendered moot due to the significantly higher-leveled Mega Rayquaza you obtained just before battling her. Dragon Ascent will oneshot her Goodra, Altaria, and Noivern while Dragon Pulse will take care of Tyrantrum and Mega Salamence. Even if you decide not to use Rayquaza, her team isn't anything special and will faint to Ice-type attacks just as fast.]]

** Wallace becomes a cakewalk if you use either Primal Reversion. Primal Groudon's Water immunity and teaching it Solarbeam (located easily in the Safari Zone) lets it steamroll through through his entire Gym with only his Whiscash posing anything resembling a threat with a super effective Earthquake (which Primal Groudon can tank anyway), while Primal Kyogre can abuse 100% accurate Thunders to one-shot everything except Whiscash (which can't take a Origin Pulse).

** In the previous remakes, certain evolution methods are impossible (friendship evolutions, most notoriously Crobat, until obtaining the National Dex in FRLG; and locale evolutions [Glaceon, Leafeon, Probopass and Magnezone] are impossible, period, in HGSS). In ORAS, both methods are available from the start.

[[note]]And even if you can't enter New Mauville until the version legendary is defeated/captured, just try using Rare Candy on Nosepass and Magneton just outside the locked door.[[/note]]

* AuthorsSavingThrow: As noted on their character sheets, Archie and Maxie's plans in the original games had some holes in it, like Archie thinking summoning torrential rains to flood the world is a good thing, and Maxie planning to make Mt. Chimney erupt in order to expand the landmass. The remakes retcon that Team Aqua is an AnimalWrongsGroup who want to raise sea levels to return the world to nature, so they don't care about the destruction of land-based human cities, and the Mt. Chimney plan for both is retconned to them trying to harness the volcano's power to transform the meteorite into something useful.
