* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Team Rocket trio, being the scoundrels they are, at first ally themselves with Alva and his mission, solely in the hopes of finally stealing Pikachu. However, after Alva takes Magearna's Soul-Heart and dismisses the value of its life other than being a tool in his own plot, and Meowth hears Magearna's voice from within the Soul-Heart, the trio becomes horrified and disgusted by Alva's callous ruthlessness and turns against him, only for Alva to eject Jessie and James from his ship ''mid-air'' and take Meowth hostage to use as a monitor for Magearna's voice.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Prince Raleigh completely trusts [[ObviouslyEvil Alva]], even when he's clearly threatening Magearna not to react to Volcanion being frozen in his first scene and disagrees when Chymia warns him not to spend time with him.

He doesn't even question the extreme torture Alva's men inflicted on innocent harassed Pokémon and Ash! [[spoiler: It's not until Alva mercilessly rips out Magearna's Soul-Heart, carelessly disposes of its body, and then attacks Raleigh's sister, Ash and his friends, and all the Nebel Plateau Pokémon, that the prince finally sees Alva for the monster that he truly is.]]
