* Serena's goodbye, specifically [[spoiler:the kiss]]. Words just cannot describe the epic ReactionShot of the rest of the XY gang. Plus Bonnie's fist pump that seems to tell Serena 'good job!'. Another special mention goes to Pikachu, who loves it so much ''his ears twine together''!

** Also, at first Team Rocket thinks that Ash's Pikachu evolved into Raichu. They only realize that's not what happened after she shocks James, and he realizes that her electric attacks are not very powerful compared to Pikachu's.

* In the episode when Tierno returns, Team Rocket's latest mecha captures Tierno's Wartortle and Raichu and Ash's Sligoo. Raichu electrocutes the cage they're in and considering [[ShockAndAwe Raichu]] and [[MakingASplash Wartortle's]] types…

* When Ash tells Tierno that he wants to find out the style of the Anistar Gym for himself, Shauna notes Ash's enthusiasm and quietly asks Serena [[ShipTease "That's why you like him, right?"]] Cue LuminescentBlush and BlankWhiteEyes from Serena as she nervously babbles her response… this draws Ash's attention and [[HighPressureEmotion freaks Serena out even more]] as she insists it was nothing important. Meanwhile, Shauna sighs and gives the traditional "so dense" smile and shrug.

* In "Mending A Broken Spirit", James takes on the mysterious persona Jeeves to tutor Serena. After he ditches the disguise, Serena quickly blasts him off. Afterwards, she questions where Jeeves got to, leaving to mystified gang to assume he made a dramatic exit and vanished into thin air. That's one way of putting it…

** Later when they confront Team Rocket, they present their newest device, a large Meowth shaped mechanism. The twerps watch confused as Meowth jumps into the machine activating it in a very similar vein as the device before, with which it slowly paces towards Pikachu and hoists Meowth towards him ''just so he can perform Fury Swipes on him''… only to be few inches too far away. Both Jessie and the twerps are exasperated from having to go through all that elaboration for nothing, only to be rebuffed by [[NotSoDifferent James and Clemont for not appreciating technology]].

* Chespin and Bunnelby get sent on an errand. The hilarity kicks in when a wild Fearow steals Chespin's purse, and the [[TheDayTheMusicLied amazing insert song gets cut off]]. Then, to catch Fearow, chespin decides to ''[[FastballSpecial throw Bunnelby]]'' at it, to the latter's shock.

* Most of Clemontic Gears are dubbed horrible names by Clemont. In one episode where Team Rocket give their own mech an uncannily bad name, [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike Clemont is impressed.]]



** Jessie and James' angry interruption of the mock motto (with James claiming "copyright infringement"), plus Serena's freeze frame expression. She looks exasperated that she didn't get to finish the whole thing.

* The princess of Parfum Palace agrees to hand over the Poké Flute to Ash, in exchange for having Clemont as a "guest". At the end of the episode, the protagonists are about to leave when Bonnie remembers that Clemont is still at Parfum Palace. At that point, Clemont reunites with his friends and sister and in his underwear (which naturally embarrasses Serena). He tells them that he built a robot and put his jumpsuit on it to take his place and fool the princess. The princess is not amused by this.

* In "Battling With A Clean Slate!" Team Rocket make one final attempt at Pikachu for the series, and get promptly outmatched by the twerps and Alain. As they blast off, the trio sulkily admit [[DidntThinkThisThrough they never really stood a chance against two league finalists]] and aren't seen facing them for the rest of the series. To reiterate, [[VillainForgotToLevelGrind the odds got so uneven]] by the end of the ''XY'' series that [[DeterminedDefeatist Team Rocket]] of all people essentially rage quit.

** For a majority of the episode, Pikachu, Bonnie, and Dedenne play ninja while Ash and Froakie train. Several moments stand out.

* In the first episode of season 19, there's a "Who's That Pokémon?" before the first commercial break. The Pokémon in question is the Zygarde Core (or "Squishy", as Bonnie names it, because there's no Pokédex data on it and it doesn't say its name), and when it's revealed, the characters other than Bonnie are completely stumped as to what it is.
