* A small one set after the ending of ''Red/Blue'': You come back after disappearing, and your partner is ''so'' overjoyed to see you... and then a very short while later they basically tell you to stop hogging the position of leader and leaves for their friend area, never to talk to you again except for scripted events.

Luckily, the DX remake changes it from that to the partner still following you in the overworld.

Added DiffLines:

** Shiftry is crying seeing you disappear. Throughout the game, after you save him from Mt. Thunder, he's been admiring your team, and saying how he owes you for saving his life. Even after the Fugitive Sequence, he was one of the first to apologize and said that he always had faith in you. Now you're gone. And he has never had the chance to even say "Thank you."

** During the commotion, Gengar says something along the lines of "I bet the Human would have no objections to disappear." With an oddly somber look on his face. We later find out that HE'S the Human from legend.

** The Red/Blue Rescue Team ending had [[spoiler:other characters besides just the partner getting upset at the hero leaving. It's a bit jarring to see Team ACT, who had been willing to hunt you down, getting sad over your disappearance]].
* The scene where [[spoiler:you have to flee town after Gengar claims you're the human from the Ninetales legend and the townspeople form a lynch mob to outright ''kill'' you and your partner]] may not be as sad as some of the Explorers scenes, but it still manages to be pretty touching. It's mainly because of how [[spoiler:Caterpie, Diglett, and Jumpluff all show up to see you off and tell you that they still believe in you]].

* [[spoiler:The FridgeHorror implications that all come from Gengar being the human who abandoned Gardevoir; even then, Gengar himself soon realizes after some trials of escorting him to two certain locations, how selfish he was after all this time of forgetting about the Ninetales curse incident. The tears in Gengar's eyes as he just speaks out is enough to tell the tale during the cutscenes]].

* Very early in the game, after your partner leaves Goomy behind in the dungeon, your partner starts to wonder if they're annoying. They ask you and regardless of what you say, they will become upset and they will not talk to you for a bit. The next day, they will not ask you to walk to school with them because they don't want to be irritating.
* Budew went to the Beedrill and Combee to gather Honey because her mother was sick and she hoped it would cure her illness.
* [[spoiler: Telling your partner you have to leave Serene Village is pretty heartbreaking. Your partner understands that you want to protect everyone, but they clearly do not want to lose the only friend they have. Subverted though, when they decide to come along with you anyway.]]
* [[spoiler: Before you leave Serene Village, with your partner, you are stopped by Deerling, Goomy, Espurr, Shelmet, and even PANCHAM. They all want to say their goodbyes. If that's not sad enough, its revealed that Espurr told the adults and they accept the fact that you are leaving the town. All of the major characters in the town leave you heartfelt letters, including ones from Carracosta and Nuzleaf.]]
* [[spoiler: Someone who is closest to a father figure as it comes, turns out to be manipulating you to do what he wants the whole time. Of course we then find out that he was under the control of Dark Matter. But he still can't bring himself to show his face to you, whether if you forgive him or not.]]
* The ending has [[spoiler:yet ''another'' sad goodbye scene.]] This time, [[spoiler:''you're'' the one left heartbroken, as you watch your partner fade away.]]
** And then the credits roll with [[MoodWhiplash super-dramatic music]] [[spoiler: as you stand under the big tree alone, crying over your partner's absence.]]
*** The whole ending is made even worse when the credits roll and you see [[spoiler: [[AuthorExistenceFailure the late]] Creator/SatoruIwata in the credits, making this one of the final games he was an Executive Producer for before his death.]]
* If you [[spoiler: take Mew to Serene Village before Purifying Cave, everyone will comment on your new friend but what really makes it sad is that ''Carracosta accidentally mistakes him for your Partner.'' And when he realizes he isn't he shakes his head sadly saying that he's seeing things. He really misses his kid.]]
* [[spoiler:Mawile and the Legendary Beasts' HeroicSacrifice. The escape point is mere ''inches'' from them, but they choose to stay behind and fight against hopeless odds just so you and the Partner have a chance to escape. Ampharos is absolutely ''crushed'' that his lifelong friend and partner is gone, which explains why he's so pissed when you confront Nuzleaf again. Especially poignant as, since Mawile was no doubt defeated by the Voidlands Shades, there was no guarantee that her soul would return to her body once Dark Matter's petrification was undone.]]
* Have a Legendary Pokemon as one of your favorites? That won't save them from being turned into stone and essentially dying which can be dispiriting if they are among those that are killed on screen. The Lati twins may have the worst death; a close look at the way their statue's arms are spread out and angled implies that the two siblings were trying to hug each other as they die, or even trying to push each other out of the way of the villain's attack only for both of them to become petrified. After being separated during the events of the first game, it wouldn't be a stretch that they were completely desperate to protect each other and not lose each other again.
