* One one of the sea routes, there's a half-flooded ferry wrecked on a reef crawling with trainers looking for any leftover valuables. Except for one youngster who, after battling you, remarks "Oh, you're not my mom..." [[FridgeHorror There's no corresponding NPC currently on the ship]] [[MissingMom who could be the boy's mother.]]

* There's a sign near a bed in Team Galactic's hideout that says ''"Please make sure the bed is unoccupied before getting into it."'' One has to wonder what sort of crazy faux-pas made that sign necessary.

* There's a sign near a bed in Team Galactic's hideout that says ''"Please make sure the bed is unoccupied before getting into it."'' One has to wonder what sort of crazy faux-pas made that sign necessary. It maybe simple in that someone sat on a person who was trying to sleep, but it might be... a bit more naughty than that.


* Following the [[ShipTease emotionally charged]] fireworks scene with Shauna on the balcony of Parfum Palace, the butler gives the player character the TM for 'Protect'.

* And yet ''another'' one from ''ORAS''; while Courtney's dialogue is already rather...suspicious in English, the Japanese original didn't make any attempt at subtlety. The sheer sexual-ness of her character generated quite some buzz and giggles on Japanese Twitter, and also inspired an Internet [[TheInternetIsForPorn hentai]] doujinshi that has been moderately circulated. Her ''Pokémon Generations'' portrayal really doesn't help either. The fact that the player is 12 also makes this [[FridgeHorror rather disturbing]].

* After completing the Delta Episode in ''Alpha Sapphire'', Archie and [[WalkingShirtlessScene Matt]] start crying and apologising to each other. Shelly simply says "Look at these two with their faces wet with tears! ...Well, I suppose it could be worse..."

* One Beauty whose text in English translation is "Yes a mere half a year ago I was a Black Belt! Quite the transformation wouldn't you say?" In the original Japanese she says, " I was a Karate King just half a year ago; the power of medical science is awesome, wouldn't you say?" While the English version (arguably) writes around it, it's pretty clear in the Japanese that the Beauty is a post-operative trans woman.

* Early in ''Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon'' when the player is saved by the three starter Pokemon, they can say to Kukui "I was scared [[PrecisionFStrike spitless"]].

* In Lacunosa Town, there's a woman that says "There are a lot of people in the world, and there are just as many different characteristics and ideas. I think I'd be really happy if I could meet a lot of people and see the differences for myself!" Every Sunday night, she shares her house with a Businessman. Every other night, she shares it with a Roughneck. That sure puts that quote in perspective, doesn't it?


* Tsareena, the new Fruit Pokémon. At first glance, her design is just a clever nod to mangosteens being "The Queen of Fruits". But look at her more closely: she has a dominant personality, looks like she's wearing thigh-high boots, tends to kick/stomp on things (her pre-evo Steenee even ''evolves'' if you level her up with the move Stomp!), and is all-female. For the more savvy players, these traits invoke an [[{{Dominatrix}} archetype]] that really, ''really'' shouldn't appear in a kid's game.
