* Even though they're the villain organization, you still have to give Cipher credit for [[spoiler:replacing all the residents of Phenac City.]]
** The ONBS raid shows ''why'' Cipher is a force to be reckoned with. In addition to the Elevator Peon and regular Ceiling Peon deployment, Exol's squad puts everyone under lock and key, they KO the bouncer, Megg is taken hostage, and Secc doesn't want to cause a panic by reporting all of this. Why go to all the trouble? [[spoiler:Michael got a Data Disc from Lovrina after chasing her off, and they want to keep the data from being compromised with as little public backlash as possible. They do this by ''scrubbing the ONBS database!'']] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Ghetsis]], put ''that'' in your pipe and smoke it.

* A minor one when fighting [[spoiler:Ardos]]. His shadow Snorlax knows the move [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Shadow End]] and its animation is to get up, jump in the air, and belly-flop the opponent. Let's repeat that: Snorlax belly-flop attack before [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Pulverizing Pancake]] was a thing. The enemy's not recovering from that.

Instead of being useless or just a tutorial in the series, the player's mom is vital to the plot.
