Added DiffLines:

*** If you rub fans the wrong way with your flaws and brash personality traits and you also don't meet fans' ridiculously high expectations they have for you, your detractors will whitewash your rivals and make them to be so much nicer and better than you. This is despite them being much more insufferable and immature than you are. See: [[InsufferableGenius Gary]] and [[SoreLoser Georgia]].


** Animals like to beat the crap out of each other, but they can't do it well without you! So even if they clearly have the capacity to think for themselves and run their own lives, you should capture them and force them to fight each other for your entertainment! They really want to be bossed around; all that escaping is just playing hard to get. After all, you have the right to enslave them because you're part of the majority group and have the technology to [[GottaCatchThemAll catch them]].

* It's completely okay to kidnap sentient beings, use them as vehicles and tools, and force them to fight for your amusement. In fact, they all want you to. [[HappinessInSlavery It's the true meaning of friendship.]]
** A major element of being a worthy main character is to accept your friends for what they are. Do not make an effort to change them, even if the result would be considerably stronger and cooler-looking, and even not if such a change is completely natural for them.
* Gonna visit a new region? [[BagOfSpilling Abandon]] [[PutOnABus those]] weak-ass Pokemon who failed to let you win the tournament! Hell, [[BusCrash wreck the damn bus]], too! Except your starter, for only that one has a hidden reset switch.
* Exploiting Pokemon to further your own ambitions is encouraged, unless you wear a uniform with an R on it.
** It's OK to treat your Pokemon like garbage, but your rival? Ohhhh no freaking way, unless it's Gary Oak.
*** If you mistreat your Pokemon to the point of animal cruelty, but just so happen to be named Paul, [[DracoInLeatherPants your fans will overlook your horrible traits.]] [[CreatorsPet And so will the writers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* There's nothing wrong with abandoning your two (heavily implied to be underaged) companions for a little action. After all, the embarrassment from what conspired during this time [[NoodleIncident (that you will NEVER]] [[OldShame bring up again)]] is probably well deserved.

Added DiffLines:

* '''Never''' use public transportation. Almost every such vehicle is either a deliberate ploy to rob you or has been hijacked by someone for that purpose.

Added DiffLines:

* Parentification of older siblings is a normal thing. Your older children won't grow up to resent you, not at all.


* Faun over every female nurse and police officer with BishieSparkle POWAH! Then, enjoy getting cockblocked via a redhead, glasses-wearing pipsqueak, or a neurotoxic prostate exam from a frog.

Added DiffLines:

* Everybody is a complete idiot [[PaperThinDisguise when it comes to recognizing people in poor disguises]], but are competent in everything else.


* You can only find your true inner strength and perfect your fighting style [[RuleOfDrama in the heat of battle when things are at their worst]]. With this in mind, [[HardWorkHardlyWorks don't bother practicing these things in advance]]. All you'll do is [[RunningGag give lumps to penguins]] or [[CriticalStatusBuff convince everyone that you're an animal abuser]].

Added DiffLines:

* Being forced to live with a trauma-inducing psychopath with a grudge, a romantic abuser, and an overbearing homeowner who refuses to let you leave? Comedy gold!


*** The true Aesop is that it's impossible because of contrived situations that are meant to screw you over at [[CruelTwistEnding the last minute]]

Added DiffLines:

* Hey kids, want to toughen up? Then just abandon civilization and live in the forest wearing nothing but leaves. [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Then you'll be a superhuman!]]

Added DiffLines:

* It doesn't matter how long you have owned a Pokémon, how well you have trained it, or how strong of a bond you have formed with it. If you ever come across a group of wild Pokémon of the same evolutionary tree, the possibility of permanently losing your Pokémon and never seeing it again will come up. Even if the Pokémon truly is your closest partner and you prove to be inseparable, it will ''still come up''. If your bond isn't perfect yet, escape such groups immediately.

Added DiffLines:

* Not liking a certain product totally justified getting banned from a gym and almost losing your chance to earn a badge to compete in the Pokemon League.
* If your Pokemon disobeys you, which humiliates you front of a crowd of people and you end up losing, don't you dare get upset about it.
