** In the ''XY'' arc, Alexa is attempting to reveal about Xerneas and Yveltal's battle while the news is passing it as an unknown force due to Malva's influence as the news reporter. This resembles ''Ruby and Sapphire'', where Gabby wants to reveal about the Devon chairman being attacked by Team Aqua members, but the news media only passes it as a Pokémon attack due to the news director being the leader of Team Aqua.
** Also, Y's relationship with her mom over her goal takes a big emphasis, similar to how Ruby believed his dad opposed him following his dream as a coordinator.
