** ''Then'' when they [[spoiler:confront Dark Matter and the latter manages to drain their EleventhHourSuperpower, the protagonist begins to lose all hope since they're stuck in their weak base forms while nearly ''all'' the Pokemon in the world had been turned to stone, feeling like they have nothing left to fight for. The partner then gives a RousingSpeech about why they shouldn't give up no matter the odds. The protagonist's response? [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments That they had something worth fighting for standing beside them the whole time.]]]]

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Just before entering the Ancient Barrow, if the player runs through the field and temporarily leaves the partner behind, the partner will be frozen to the spot and crying with fear, and won't move again until the player shows up.

** Either because of the story going so fast or your leveling up going so slowly, you'll have to take on the final chapter at around Level 25-27 which is shockingly low and doesn't give you a lot of room for error. Even a mission that is only 1-star difficulty can go south pretty quickly because your level and stats are still too low.

* NintendoHard: Occurs much, much earlier on compared to the previous games, primarily due to the game having much, much more of an emphasis on the [[{{Roguelike}} Mystery Dungeon]] side of the crossover, especially when compared to the rest of the series, which usually included a balance between the Pokémon and Mystery Dungeon elements. Whether this is a good change or a bad change is [[BrokenBase hotly debated]], especially with how the RNG of the Roguelike gameplay can clash with the linear story missions.

* EleventhHourSuperpower: Under certain extreme circumstances including the entire final dungeon, the Harmony Scarves grant you and the partner temporary evolution and doubled stats. [[spoiler: Subverted in the second half of the final battle, as the Tree of Life runs out of energy and you both revert to your base forms.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity: As is series standard, a room with a whole buttload of extra items in it is probably a Monster House. In an aversion of InterfaceSpoiler, "meet me at my secret base" missions ''always'' look like this, whether the client actually plans to ambush you or not.

* HundredPercentCompletion: You can [[GottaCatchThemAll connect with all 720 Pokémon]] and [[CartographySidequest complete every dungeon available]]; doing so will net you a silver and gold badge on the save record screen. Completing every dungeon, in addition, allows you to travel to any dungeon directly from the Nexus.

* ContractualBossImmunity: You can still use status effects on most boss Pokémon, but they will recover from those effects quickly, sometimes even on the same turn. They are also immune to specific move and wand effects (e.g., OHKO moves, Endeavor, Quarter Wand, HP-Swap Wand, etc.).

* ContractualBossImmunity: You can still use Played straight or {{downplayed|Trope}}, depending on which status effects on most boss Pokémon, but they will recover from those effects quickly, sometimes even on the same turn. They you try. Boss enemies are also of course fully immune to specific move and wand effects (e.g., OHKO anything that could truly cheese a fight (OHKO moves, Endeavor, Quarter Wand, HP-Swap Wand, etc.). Other effects can still be inflicted with the same reliability as on random mooks, but bosses will arbitrarily recover from them faster than they should, sometimes on the very same turn.


* BlobMonster: Void Shadows are apparently indigenous black ...things... that reside in the Voidlands. They also have the ability to impersonate other Pokemon.

Added DiffLines:

** When Audino begins teaching the class about evolution, none of the characters have a clear idea of what evolution exactly is. However, this includes the partner even if they're a Pikachu, the one Pokemon out of all the possible player/partner options that has already evolved.

Added DiffLines:

* PersonalHorror: Several characters end up with this trope. [[spoiler:Nuzleaf, Yveletal and Beheeyem [[BrainwashedAndCrazy are all controlled by the Dark Matter]] to turn [[TakenForGranite everyone into stone]] and go into self-imposed exile after breaking free and helping to defeat Dark Matter.]]
