Tropes used in Pokémon Pinball:
Tropes used in Pokémon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire:
- Last Lousy Point: Lati@s will probably be the last empty spot to fill in your Pokédex.
- Lost Forever: The event in which Jirachi appears can only happen once per playthough, so you better not let it escape.
- The Cameo: A few mons from the first two generations appear in the Ruby table. Though extremely rare, they're catchable.
- Pokémon Speak: Pikachu and Pichu, everything else uses their regular cries.
