** You can ride Pokémon in ''X and Y'', for the first time outside of Surf. The problem? There's only three to ride on. All are limited to one area each, and two of them are slow and cumbersome to control, so it really feels like a throwaway gimmick. The Gen 7 games would properly implement this with the Pokémon Ride system.

** While the game's contributions to the franchise such as Mega Evolution, more accessible competitive battling, 3D models, and ways to interact with Pokémon are very well-regarded, the main game is frequently considered paint-by-numbers even for a Pokémon game, with very little allowing it to stand on its own; Team Flare is largely regarded as too similar to Team Galactic but much less memorable, most other NPCs and the storyline are often seen as full of [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter wasted potential]], and the Gyms are regarded as easy and forgettable, to the point that some fans consider Gen VI to be the point when the traditional formula of the series became stale. This was likely the reason behind Gen VII replacing the Gym formula and adding a more complex story akin to BW, though [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks that caused some problems on its own]].

** Emolga. It is just as annoying as ever, but has a new move to ruin your day and is placed next to Sylveon in the Kalos Dex, a spot many felt should have belonged to another Eeveelution. It reaches ridiculous territory when one considers that Emolga would have to be programmed into the game ''anyway'', and if they planned for another Eevee evolution Emolga's inclusion wouldn't have done anything to stop it.

** AZ slaughtering several soldiers and Pokémon with the ultimate weapon and [[spoiler:using their souls to revive his own dead Pokémon]], and then continuing to use the weapon to [[spoiler:Put Them All Out Of My Misery]], was seen as this in the eyes of the very Pokémon [[spoiler:AZ revived, ironically enough]].

*** While its final form Delphox has become quite the BaseBreakingCharacter, Braixen has been met with lovely reception by the fanbase. The fact that it wasn't the [[FranchiseOriginalSin 4th Fire/Fighting type starter]] in a row already gave it better reception than its detested 5th gen predecessor [[TheScrappy Pignite]]. But what really garners it so much appeal is its unique design which likens it to a {{Tsundere}} girl. It's so prominent that you'll often see much fanart online with behaving like a Tsundere, even calling people baka, and many people will breed or soft reset their game so that they get the female Fennekin and will choose not to evolve it to its final stage. It's popularity only grew when the anime Serena's Fennekin evolved into a Braixen. Further cemented when Braixen was revealed (to great fanfare and excitement) as a playable character in PokkenTournament.

** A large rivalry with the [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Alola]] games has also quickly sprung up, to the point where it could be considered the ''next'' evolution of the Gen VI-Gen VII debate. Some fans of ''XY'' tend to diss ''SM'' as melodramatic and story-obsessed games with constant cutscenes that also removed many little quality-of-life things introduced in the ''XY'', as well as major things such as the National Dex and Super Training, and also having a lower Pokémon diversity than ''XY''. Some fans of ''SM'', on the other hand, decry ''XY'' as being very bare-bones with very little changes to the main gameplay, and state that ''SM'' had a much better story, soundtrack, and characters than ''XY'', with Lillie, Hau, Gladion, Team Skull, and [[spoiler:the Aether Foundation]] being superior to heir counterparts Calem/Serena, Shauna, Trevor, Tierno, and Team Flare. This time, the divide can be considered a bona fide CasualCompetitiveConflict; ''SM'' is on the "casual" side of the spectrum (most of the praise is about the main game), while ''XY'' is instead on the "competitive" side (with fans praising their games' competitive battling aspects).

*** The Hex Maniac trainer class has quickly become popular among the fandom, already getting more fanart than the Gym Leaders, which is saying something. It probably has something to do with her looking like a [[http://36.media.tumblr.com/cf0d8530f3491831249c033101ff4310/tumblr_mvksnrCibM1swsw24o9_1280.jpg fusion]] of Tomoko from ''[[Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular WataMote]]'' and Tharja from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''.

** This is the generation that introduces the idea that ''any'' change to the 3DS clock will reset the timer for time-based events(i.e., Berry growth will be reset and you'll have to wait until the next day to do anything that can only be done once per day), not just changing it to be the next day [[ObviousRulePatch(which could be worked around by just setting the clock to 23:59 on the same day and just waiting a bit)]]. Can be frustrating when all you want is to change your clock for DST or just because you noticed it was a few minutes off.

** The Face Game in Pokémon-amie is insanely easy to trigger by accident, but also insanely hard to actually play. So if you accidentally activate it while distracted, odds are your Pokémon is going to lose a bit of excitement just because the camera can't register that you're trying to do what the game says.

** Just about every Pokémon that was {{retcon}}ned to become a Fairy became ''much'' more useful due to the type's resistances and hard to exploit weaknesses. Special mention goes to Clefable, which shot up from [=NeverUsed=] (the lowest tier) to [=OverUsed=] (the highest) on Website/{{Smogon}}.
