* [[spoiler:Talk about BigDamnHeroes. When the Plasma Sages ambush you in N's Castle, you're tired. You've just dealt with four of the toughest Pokémon League appointed trainers, and hope seems quite lost. That's when the last 8 Gym Leaders show up: Lenora, Burgh, Elesa, Clay, Skyla, Brycen, Iris, and Drayden. Just goes to show that those guys [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority really do do more than just sit around, occasionally battling trainers after all!]]]]
** Give [[spoiler:Bianca]] credit. [[spoiler:She went all over Unova and performed a GondorCallsForAid to get them there.]]
* [[spoiler:At the end of the main storyline, N jumps out the hole in the wall of the top of his castle. Instant cut to the most epic credits music you'll ever hear, with the 3D model of the version legendary people playing the other version will see at the title screen. Later into the credits, you see N riding that Pokémon across the skies.]]
** [[spoiler: If you've played VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}, the music just makes that cutscene even better. The song, N's Farewell, takes notes from that game's Love Theme, which is played during its most heartwrenching moments - and considering what VideoGame/{{Mother 3}} [[TearJerker is known for]]...]]
* [[spoiler: When N first encounters the legendary dragon at the top of Dragonspiral Tower. Or the moment when Reshiram/Zekrom is summoned in N's Castle, and it comes crashing through the walls.]]
** And after that as well when [[spoiler: the player's dragon gets summoned, saving the player from N and his dragon, with the awesome music at the same time.]]
** How about the part before it? In the words of Marriland, [[spoiler: "he raises his hand and sends forth a WICKEDLY AWESOME CUTSCENE of an ENORMOUS CASTLE SHOOTING WAY UP FROM THE SANDS AND STABBING THE POKEMON LEAGUE WITH STAIRS!! [[LargeHam There's no better way to capture the enthusiasm than with CAPS, trust me.]] It's very cool."]]
* [[spoiler:The final battle against N, where he leads off with his dragon and so do you. [[CrowningMusicofAwesome The music is epic, too.]]]]
** Add to it the fact that if you [[spoiler:made it to N with a free space in your party, the moment you catch your dragon, it will be added at the top of your party, meaning that the first fight will be between Reshiram and Zekrom]]
*** You don't need the free space. If you have a full party, you'll be asked if you want to [[spoiler:swap the dragon into your team for the duel with N. Game Freak ''knows'' that's ''all you want, heck yeah, bring it on!'']]
** Conversely, if you forgo using your shiny new dragon, one-shotting the enemy dragon with a [[ComMons Com Mon]] like [[MightyGlacier Gigalith]] or [[LightningBruiser Excadrill]] is IMMENSELY satisfying. Even legendary dragons fall before ElementalRockPaperScissors.
*** It's even better because those ComMons have quite possibly been with you since the beginning of your journey. You don't ''need'' the legendary dragon, you have [[ThePowerOfFriendship your Pokemon friends!]]
* Going across the Skyarrow Bridge for the first time. It WILL bring you to tears, ''especially'' if you're a long-time fan. TheWorldIsJustAwesome doesn't begin to describe it.
** [[EarWorm The]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome music]] that plays on Skyarrow Bridge definitely adds to its awesomeness.
** It gets even better because on the other side of that bridge is Castelia City. The biggest and most complex city in Pokémon history as of then with music as awesome as the architecture.
* Whenever you've fought the Gym Leader down to his/her last Pokémon, and an [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome remix]] of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yw79CHSgseI main theme]] starts up. It ''will'' make you want to kick butt that much more.
* You've finally earned all eight badges and now head to the Victory Road where at it's peak is the Pokémon League. But before that, you need to pass through gates locked by badges you've earned on your journey to be the champion. Not only that, the music slowly builds as you go through each checkpoint! You're almost there, don't give up!
** And it only starts when you've passed the first gate - when you first enter the area, it is in complete silence. It feels almost mystical. Kind of like Mount Silver in HGSS or Mt. Coronet in Pokemon DPPt.
*** One of the most awesome things in this part? what the NPC says after you show them the badges, gave me a lot of goosebumps
*** Trio Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Oh, holder of the Trio Badge! Challenge all that you face!".]]
*** Basic Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Oh, holder of the Basic Badge! Show the knowledge you've obtained!".]]
*** Insect Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Oh, holder of the Insect Badge! Fight valiantly like an insect!".]]
*** Bolt Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Oh, holder of the Bolt Badge! Unfurl a shocking battle!".]]
*** Quake Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Oh, holder of the Quake Badge! Make your foes' hearts tremble!".]]
*** Jet Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Oh, holder of the Jet Badge! Blast ahead with tremendous force!".]]
*** Freeze Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Oh, holder of the Freeze Badge! Show the sharp edge of an icicle!".]]
*** Legend Badge Check Gate: [[spoiler: "Pass through Victory Road, which lies beyond here, and head for the Pokémon League! Prove that you, too, can be a legend!".]]
* Climbing up the rooms to each member of the E4. The entire endgame is just a series of CMOA, really.
** [[spoiler: Defeating [[BigBad Ghetsis]]. Aside from his memorable VillainousBreakdown, he's also a serious ThatOneBoss. And not only is the music kick butt, but the satisfaction you get in pummeling this guy who had just revealed himself to be [[YouMonster an inhumane monster of high proportions]] is very great indeed.]]
* When you [[spoiler: get to N after beating the Elite Four and your Stone finally responds to you, the following cutscene is ''epic''. The Stone rises into the air, starts pulsing with energy and then turns into a curled-up dragon. And then its eyes open, and you ''know'' stuff is about to get real.]]
** Even better, this is just after the cutscene of [[spoiler: N calling forth his dragon, who bursts through the wall behind the throne (the hole this makes being the one they exit through at the end) and releases a massive burst of energy which vaporizes the water at the bottom of the room. When the player's stone reacts, the game says it's "absorbing the atmosphere" which suggests that, even asleep, your dragon recognizes its opposite number and wakes up specifically to kick some ass.]]
* An awesome moment stemming from one of the harshest TearJerker moments in the series: [[spoiler: [[BitchInSheepsClothing Ghetsis]] finally [[MotiveRant shows his]] [[ItsAllAboutMe true colors]], sends N into [[HeroicBSOD broken silence]], and prepares to fight the player character.]] And then you go and you ''beat the everloving heck out of him and his for messing with your new friends''. And it is one of the most badass fights in the game, and one of the most satisfying Pokémon battles in the entire series.
* Brycen spotting [[spoiler:hidden Shadow Triad outside his Gym]] like it was nothing. Mind you, [[spoiler:they're more or less ''ninjas'', so spotting them isn't easy.]]
