* Finding a ''shiny Pokémon''.
* RealLife example: [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ray_Rizzo Ray Rizzo]], an American ''Pokémon'' video game player who won the Pokémon Video Game World Championships (in the Master Division[[note]]Originally was the champion in the Senior Division for 2010 before the adult-oriented Master Division was made as a third tier to the kid-oriented Junior and teen-oriented Senior Divisions.[[/note]]) ''three years straight''. This guy is such a freakin' ''juggernaut'' in the competitive ''Pokémon'' video gaming space.
** Even better: He's included in a downloadable pack for ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', the Master's Division Challenge. His team consists of [[OlympusMons 4 pseudo-legendaries and 2 legendaries]], the team he used in the world championship finale.
*** And his signature mon? A shiny Metagross that is [[RuleOfSymbolism Gold and Silver]] in colour. Oh and GameFreak gave it out as an event for a while. Ray is the Red of RealLife.
** Unfortunately, it appears he wasn't able to bring a repeat performance as he wasn't able to win the 2013 Championships. On the upside, it seems 2013 is the first time someone from Europe won, and it was in a division usually won by either someone from the United States or Japan.
* Remember [[http://features.peta.org/pokemon-black-and-white-parody/ this]] parody game PETA made not too long after Black 2 and White 2's North American release? PETA called it a parody. What was the most of the fandom's reaction? [[InternetBackdraft RAGE]]. Nearly every Pokemon fan out there leapt to the defense of their favourite franchise. Now ''those'' are some dedicated fans.
** Which gets into some fridge humor if you remember the stated plot of Team Plasma in the first game. So I guess Team PETA = Team Plasma?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyRLBrB8Jrc Someone managed to turn]] Delcatty's Normalize, one of the worst abilities in the game, into one of the most devastating {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s ever.
* Ladies and gentlemen... [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev3VwmpBXyo an epic power metal rendition of the Pokemon theme we all know and love,]] featuring [[Music/SonataArctica Tony Kakko]] on vocals.
* In the 2014 Pokemon World Championship, Se Jun Park decided to use a ''[[ComMons Pachirisu]]'' on his team. [[LethalJokeCharacter It became critical to his eventual victory, tanking a ]]''[[LethalJokeCharacter Draco Meteor ]]''[[LethalJokeCharacter and bringing down a]] [[GameBreaker Mega Kangaskhan - a Pokemon so broken that Nintendo themselves said they might need to nerf it]].
* Anyone doing a Mono-type run and managing to beat the game with only one type. Bonus points if they manage to utilize any moves that helps fight against their weaknesses.
* Completing a [[SelfImposedChallenge Nuzlocke]] [[FinalDeath run]] in any game. Especially if you manage to have zero casualties.
* Taking down a [[OlympusMons legendary pokemon]] whether it belongs to another player or an in-game opponent using only [[BadassNormal ordinary pokemon]].

* In the manga ''Surf's Up Pikachu'', Pikachu takes its victory against Drake's Dragonite a step further and ''crawls down into Dragonite's mouth'', delivering the attack internally. Even the announcer declares Pikachu to be scary at that point.
