* Groudon and Kyogre's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwJViCjDkLA epic]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxbbJfpuNjA battle]] in ''Pokémon Emerald''. And more importantly, Rayquaza, [[spoiler:who flies to Sootopolis after you encounter it at the Sky Pillar. Once you arrive there and witness Groudon and Kyogre again, Rayquaza comes out, flies through the clouds, descends with a trail of green light cloaking it, and swoops down to Groudon and Kyogre. With one mighty roar, it sends them both away, and departs, returning the weather to normal.]] How intense is that?
** AND THE MUSIC (specifically, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrdWwqlNwRM "Heavy Rain"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcLNMZPF2DA "Rayquaza's Descent!"]] accompany the scenes), which could be considered CrowningMusicOfAwesome in their own right.
* Earning [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ornament#Awards the Gold Shield ornament]] after winning ''100'' straight battles in the Battle Tower definitely qualifies as one for the player and his/her Pokémon.
** Or managing to get the gold symbols in the Battle Frontier, especially with all [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the crap]] they put you through.
