!General
* [[OhCrap GRAVELER woke up.]] GRAVELER snapped out of confusion. [[HeroicSacrifice GRAVELER used SELF-DESTRUCT.]]
** [[FunnyMoments It doesn't affect HAUNTER...]]
* 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]] game PETA made not too long after Black 2 and White 2's North American release? PETA simply called it a parody. What was the most of the fandom's reaction to the game? [[InternetBackdraft RAGE]]. Nearly every Pokemon fan out there leapt to the defense of their favorite franchise. Now ''those'' are some dedicated fans. Even better when Nintendo themselves stated that they might ''sue'' PETA for it.
** Which gets into some fridge humor if you remember the stated plot of Team Plasma in the first game. So yes, Team Plasma is a parody of PETA, and they didn't realize the irony when they made the game. Made even more funny when you take into account that Team Plasma's motives display all forms of hypocrisy, which is exactly what PETA was criticized for.
* [[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 ]]''[[ThatOneAttack 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]].
* On February 27th, 2016, ''Pokémon'' turned ''20 years old''. How did they celebrate? By airing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2F46tGehnfo a commercial]] celebrating the franchise during ''the goddamn Superbowl'' earlier in the month (February 7th), focusing on the human aspect of the franchise. Children of all different ethnicities and walks of life telling themselves, "I can do that." Also counts as an example of SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome, with the beautiful CGI depictions of Gyrados, Mega Lucario, Pikachu, and others. The absolute best part, though? At the end, there's a family watching the match that's about to take place in the stadium depicted moments before. It's not the child saying, "I can do that," this time. Instead, the father says to his son, [[HeartwarmingMoments "You can do that."]]

!Unlisted
* 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.
