* The Dark City gym[[spoiler:s]] truly embrace the nature of its chosen type. Dark-types are known for utilizing misdirection, are ruthless in their tactics, and bend, if not outright break the rules. The first thing the gym does is lie about its own nature. They use many Pokemon that are not Dark-type, pointing out the loophole stating they don't HAVE to use their nominal type, just be proficient in it. [[spoiler: And when a trainer finally wins and thinks they're in the clear, the other gym leader is preparing to fight them.]]

* [[spoiler:The God Squad coming out of the GS ball in the Battle Finale of Legend seems like a poorly thought out DeusExMachina at first. However, even if you ignore the Assist-induced Judgement, which is already a giant hint, there is one more hint that was planted hundreds of chapters earlier in advance which gives away the fact that the GS ball is a doorway to Arceus' realm, the fortress of '''G'''old and '''S'''ilver. GS also could easily stand for '''G'''od '''S'''quad and in the original canon, Gold and Silver was what the GS ball was called. Not only that, the GS ball is completely unscathed after being hit by Roar of Time, which shouldn't be possible unless it also exists on a cosmic tier. The hints were right in front of us the whole time!!]]

* Why is the original version of Team Plasma written out like in the anime? By the time they debuted in Chapter 201, [[AlreadyDoneForYou pretty much all of N's goals have already been met or were in the process of being met thanks to Ash and company's actions]]. And that is not counting the stuff that N found out on his own like Mewtwo's book. Having N's Team Plasma appear anyway when Ash reaches Unova would just make them look redundant.



* Every time you laughed at Brock's reaction to hearing Professor Ivy's name or Misty's fear of bug Pokemon, you're laughing at the most traumatizing moments of their lives.

Added DiffLines:

** Mind you, the Pokedex is often filled with hyperbole and outright misinformation (saying certain pokemon are incapable of being trained yet the anime shows them as being trained or friendly, or showing apocalyptic consequences for Pokemon doing normal things), so it's unlikely that this would have come to pass.

* Rayquaza has been assigned the secondary duty of stopping incoming meteorites ever since Arceus got hit with the one that killed the dinosaurs. Rayquaza said that Arceus was fine because he had all his plates, but was reliably told that it hurt. Rock is the only type that is super effective against more types than it's not very effective against and no type is immune to, so it would be the best type to use against a theoretical "every-Type" Pokémon.


* Apparently the gym as a whole does not have to have a singular type, but each gym ''leader'' does. This explains how Cilan and his brothers are able to run their gym despite all three of them not focusing on the same type.\

* Ever heard the idea that the Fairy-type was developed by a little girl who likes cute things and has the strength to beat down the big scary dragons and big scary men? Well in this fic, the first Fairy-type around was Sylveon, dreamed up as an evolution to Eevee by Molly Hale, and when she became real, a TimeCrash allowed Arceus to use her typing as the basis of all Fairy-types.


* It's been shown that Goodra and Mawile are really good friends. [[VideoGames/PokemonSunAndMoon Pokemon Sun's]] Pokedex reveals that Sliggoos have trouble differentiating the difference between friends and food and may even try to EAT those they get along with. It's probably a VERY good thing that Mawile had him evolve so quickly.

* Ash losing to Casey seems like just a random FEAR joke, but it actually references how Ash starts every new region by losing a battle he should have won.

Added DiffLines:

** Notably, while Professor Ivy's original fate isn't canon, it does successfully explain away why Brock would throw away his one chance at love, especially since Brock's scenes up until then show he's largely happy at her lab.
