Added DiffLines:

* The player characters in these games tend to come off as comically overpowered, able to defeat fully-evolved Pokémon and even legendaries. How is it that they can consistently do this before having evolved even once themselves? Simple: they used to be human. We know from the main series Pokémon games that trainers are almost inherently better at battle strategy than Pokémon themselves, to the point where having a trainer is the ultimate way for a Pokémon to unlock its own potential. As a human-turned-Pokémon, the player can effectively serve as its own trainer and wipe the floor with all the "wild" Pokémon they encounter.
** This leads to a bit of [[SlidingScaleOfGameplayAndStoryIntegration Gameplay and Story Integration]]. Even if you boost their IQ stat, your partner and other Pokémon often do things during battle that... [[ArtificialStupidity aren't the smartest]]. It's the player, the one being controlled by a human, who almost always has the strongest understanding of combat technique in the room.

* In summoning a long series of human to their world in the hopes that one of them can defeat the Bittercold, [[spoiler: Hydreigon]] is basically throwing lives at the problem until it's solved.

* With Gen VI and VII canonising that the ''Pokemon'' franchise has many alternate timelines, this raises questions about where Temporal Tower sits in all this. Would the tower falling have caused ''every'' timeline to crash?


** No. [[spoiler: Darkrai]] would have happened anyway. It's because of Jirachi that [[spoiler: the partner found the Relic Fragment, and because of Jirachi that the partner was on the beach that day. That's when he met you, who helped recover the Fragment and started the team.]] In other words, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Bidoof's wish saved the world,]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming just because he wanted to help someone else.]]

*** Adding this in to clarify. It's definitely the latter interpretation, since the original Japanese when directly translated gives us, "Deserters will be punished!"

It's definitely the latter interpretation, since the The original Japanese dialogue, when directly translated translated, gives us, "Deserters will be punished!"punished!" Chances are, it is mostly to promote an attitude of not balking down from a challenge, since the bit about the Guild taking a cut is in rule 10.

Added DiffLines:

* The graduation exam prepared by Wigglytuff - the last adventure an apprentice will have as a member of the guild - ends with the apprentice taking the exam falling through a pitfall trap into a darkened monster house and having to fight multiple enemies surrounding them at once. As shown in "Igglybuff the Prodigy", the last adventure Wigglytuff had with his mentor ended in pretty much the same way.

* Why does Chatot assume that Team Skull is friends with the player character and partner simply because they know each other, or at least assume they're on good terms? Because he's gotten used to Wigglytuff, who considers everyone he meets to be a friend.

* In the special Episode "Here Comes Team Charm", you can get a few hints on [[spoiler: the true guardian of the Time Gear]]. How? Look at it's face? Doesn't it remind you of, say, a [[spoiler: Ditto?]]

Added DiffLines:

* Considering in Explorers [[spoiler:you end out being a time paradox being saved from nonexistence]], the game arguably has the happiest ending. [[spoiler:You never went to the Pokeworld due to a bad future and thus you and Grovyle never got separated or transformed into a pokemon, thus you are still there with all your friends and family back home on your world, while the Pokemon world you can continue to train and go on adventures, eventually meeting back up with Grovyle.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IQ in this game is the equivalent to friendship in the main games (in that it affects Return and Frustration's power and enables Pokémon that evolves by friendship to do so) because having more IQ skills that's unlocked from IQ points makes you more trustworthy, and trust was often another term used for friendship.
