** [[BadassInCharge Shadow Admin]] [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Sleight]] blasting down a door designed to survive ''nuclear explosions'' using only his Magmortar, before proceeding to demonstrate a ridiculous amount of [[ConvectionSchmonvection heat tolerance]]--meaning, Sleight was more or less unaffected while Buzz and Surge had to cover their faces and use a Tyranitar to block the heat. The [[ArtisticLicensePhysics physics-defying-ness]] of this was even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by his target and Sleight himself.

* Basically any major, plot-relevant battle, but the events in Castelia City, in particular, were this UpToEleven. Especially since it signified one of the first major, human-caused devastation with character-affecting lasting impact situations in the game.

* Basically any major, plot-relevant battle, but the events in Castelia City, in particular, were this UpToEleven. Especially since it signified one some of the first major, human-caused devastation in the game, with character-affecting lasting long-lasting impact situations in on several of the game.characters involved.


* From early on in the RPG, the Battle of Four Island. Not only did it signify the end of the first major arc of the game--firmly establishing the conflict between Team Liberty and Team Rocket--but it was also the first all-RPG-encompassing battles in the game. Naturally, there were a lot of awesome moments included within.
** Bluefalcon's LastStand against the invading Rocket forces, specifically the group led by Ortrune. Even though she ultimately failed in stopping them from stealing Team Liberty's database of Agents, it was still ''really'' cool.
** Many of the [=PC=]-vs-[=PC=] battles across the Alamo and the beach.
** The destruction of Team Rocket's airship--as well as the fact that they even had such a thing to begin with.



* Lachina's introduction, with dozens of Pokémon Rangers descending from helicopters to assist in cleaning up the destroyed Sootopolis City.

** Moreover, this entire sub-plot demonstrated why Sleight--who until then had never truly shown his prowess in anything but [[TheChessmaster mind games, threats, and public manipulation]]--is the top dog in Team Rocket. AuthorityEqualsAsskicking, indeed.

* The makeshift Meteor Mash used against pseudo-Groudon in Sootopolis. Specifically, a Meteor Mash constructed using the remains of the buildings that the pseudo-Groudon had destroyed earlier, and which dealt quite a bit of damage. HoistByHisOwnPetard, indeed.
* Esen's battle abilities. She effortlessly trounced Victoire despite the latter's team being fully capable of taking out her much-frailer Flying-Types. And in her first appearance, she managed to do the same against [[EliteMooks Sabrina, Koga, and Lt. Surge]] until Team Liberty interfered and threw off her game.

Added DiffLines:

*The Dismantling of Soil Colossus, Inc. is full of CMOAs. Just to name a few:
**The initial attack on SCI's base, in which Team Rocket's strike team--consisting of, at most, thirty agents, including Surge, Koga, Sabrina, Lafoyae Belrose, Shadow Admin Buzz, and Shadow Admin Slight himself--effortlessly disable power in virtually the entire base, simultaneously mowing down any SCI agents they come across.
**[[{{Ninja}} Koga]] pulling an [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreed Ezio]] on Nemo Buck, ''after'' using a combination of explosions, diversions, and poisons to clear out a hall full of gun-wielding guards.

**Even after falling under powerful MindControl, Sleight manages an UnflinchingWalk directly toward Carl Sandrock, the man responsible for Soil Colossus' crimes, and [[BoomHeadShot kills him]], all the while delivering a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech--unfortunately, not before Surge is forced to shoot Buzz.
