to:

* We finally find out why Misty is so afraid Bug-Types in this timeline. On a school trip when she was about five or six, some jerk replaced the bug repellent with a perfume that ''attracted'' Bug-types instead, and she was completely ''covered'' by a group of Caterpie and Weedle. Luckily her teacher saved her right when a Beedrill showed up.



to:

* Casey is adamant to Ash that stuff like Mega forms vs. Z-Moves is ''not'' safe, and does have something to do with radiation, but ''refuses'' to go into any more detail on the matter, saying that people have ''died'' just for ''knowing too much'' about it.


Added DiffLines:

** Mabel is ''very'' strict to her grandkids that, while Mega Evolutions, Z-Moves, etc, can be safely used against the same type, like a Mega form against another Mega form, or a Z-Move against a Z-Move, stuff like a Z-Move against a Mega form is ''not'' allowed, and she refuses to tell them ''why''. Their best guess is that it releases harmful radiation.


** Even worse? If what he saw wasn't [[spoiler:the ghost of his adoptive daughter]] and he was just imagining things, then it's clear the guy's mental state has gone off the deep, making it all the more dangerous to everyone around him.

** Moreover, [[spoiler: it's heavily implied that in the BadFuture, Red wished for Mega Stones, and that eventually led him to ultimately clash against Ash when he tried to bring back someone from the dead (possibly Yellow, possibly his mom).]] And we can't be certain whether that won't come to pass now, despite the change.
** And the how Red intended to do so [[spoiler: was Geosenge Town, aka the ''Ultimate Weapon'']].

Added DiffLines:

** Moreover, the Bloodliner Hunter Interlude goes to show how far he's willing to go. No matter if they're small children, or if they have relatively harmless abilities, ''any'' Bloodliner is fair game for him to kill.

* The Pokedex tries to kill everyone on New Island. Suddenly all of the jokes of the thing being Skynet aren't quite as funny.

* The Pokedex tries to kill everyone on New Island. Suddenly Once Mewtwo has successfully captured all of the jokes of Pokemon ''and'' Bloodliners, Dexter decides to intervene. How so? By hacking into the thing being Skynet aren't quite systems within the Island and rigging it to ''explode''! His rationale is that his programming requires he protect Ash at all costs, and that since the balls the Pokemon and Bloodliners were trapped in can withstand the blast, he can detonate the island and kill Mewtwo, then he can register the balls under Ash's name and have them transported to Professor Oaks lab, where they'll be freed. However, he also claims that all the other trainers are expendable, meaning he's willing to let Gary, Casey, Alex, Neesha, Corey, Fergus, and Paul ''die'' along with Mewtwo. When Paul's Pokedex attempts to intervene, he remotely shuts her down, and preemptively shuts off Gary's Pokedex too. Even when Cepu tries to intervene, he manages to temporarily shutdown Cepu too! Dexter's plan nearly worked, only failing because Mewtwo managed to contain the blast with his Psychic Energy and throw it into the atmosphere. The fact remains however that Ash's Pokedex was perfectly willing to ''murder'' Mewtwo and the others so long as funny.
Ash and his friends were safe.
** For that matter, it re-contextualizes his behavior in Anabel's Pallet Town Chapter. In it, he begins to go on a rant about how he could hack into any possible database, and if he so desired, could easily ''shut down Team Rocket'' or ''restart the Trainer-Ranger wars''! Many comparisons to [[Franchise/TheTerminator Skynet]] were made at the time, and while the scene was PlayedForLaughs there, it now reads like eerie {{foreshadowing}}.

to:

** The idea of the Dark Poke Balls being comparable to death is reinforced when it is established that all other Bloodliners were captured in them, as well as the other Pokémon; once they are all released, Pikachu explicitly asks if being in the Dark Poke Balls is what death is like.


** Moreover, Pidgeot's early comments about the lost timeframe of their memories hint that, while trapped inside Mewtwo's balls, they essentially turn into ''nothingness''. Neither energy nor matter, they effectively ''[[CessationOfExistence do not exist]]!''

** An example comes from when Red notices the wording his guide used and asks him what ''he'' wished for. It turns out that he wanted to be free of worrying about an uncertain futurefuture, not die, and to be free of pain and exhaustion. He ended up trapped in a realm between realms, incorporeal and unable to leave it, which makes Red feel like Sneasel had just used an ice attack on him, and finding the Unown more terrifying than anything that he had seen before.
