* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Every single move in the games is planned out by the computer in advance, so reloading and trying a turn with a coin flip won't change anything. This also means the computer ''will'' deal out starting hands that ''will'' make the matching totally ''{{Unwinnable}}'' and there is ''nothing'' you can do about it.

** Murray, leader of the Psychic Club in the first gameboy game. His deck is based around Stall, playing key monsters such as Chansey and Snorlax to soak up damage with their massive HP pools and using Scoop to return them to the bench with out losing energy. On their own they can just take attacks or attack, but Murray can also use Alakazam's Pokemon Power to transfer any damage he takes to any of his benched Pokemon(Like Chansey or Snorlax). Even worse, Murray can use Pokemon Center to heal all the damage you've manged to inflict on his active and benched Pokemon. Losing to him because of a Deck Out is not uncommon.

* ThatOneBoss: Bernard, leader of the GR Fire Fort, in the second game boy game. His "special rule" is easily one of the most unfair in the game: Fire type Pokemon have ''no weaknesses!'' Why is that so unfair? Well, unlike the other masters' rules, there's pretty much no way to possibly use this to your advantage, since his deck doesn't have any Water cards to hit ''your'' Fire types' weaknesses. So basically, it's just TheComputerIsACheatingBastard disguised as a rules change. His deck is by no means bad either, and with no weaknesses to exploit the only real strategy is just to play really, really well. Or hope his AIRoulette gets handed the IdiotBall.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: Some of the criticism stems from this, while others consider it a viable strength.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: Some ItsEasySoItSucks[=/=]ItsHardSoItSucks: The game hits opposite extremes in different matches. Because of the criticism stems from this, way the game was coded, some matches will be [[ArtificialStupidity impossible to lose]] while others consider it a viable strength.will be [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard impossible to win]]. At least losing doesn't have any repercussions like in the main series.

* {{Woolseyism}}: Occasionally attack name translations differ from the video games' to better fit the context of the card game move's effects; for example, "''Nenriki''" (literally "willpower") is "Confusion" in the video games (it has a chance of confusing the opponent) and "Psyshock" in the card game (it can cause paralysis).

** Also in the first game, you can scan cards with the e-Reader. Basically, any card made at the time, you can put in your game. Luckily, the overpowered holofoil cards can't be scanned due to the material, but they can still be obtained leginimately in-game.
