* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Has some pretty adult themes for a kid's book, namely children being legal adults at age ten, TeenPregnancy and adultery, to name a few examples. Of course, this is Creator/TakeshiShudo we're talking about, who wanted the anime to be just as much for adults as for kids.

* HilariousInHindsight: There's a passage (at least in the FanTranslation) where a character, implied to be Professor Oak, waxes poetic about what might happen if various inanimate objects turned out to have Pokemon versions of themselves. Many of these examples now are actual Pokemon. The examples given are fighter jets (Latias and Latios), tanks and pistols (tenuously the Octillery line), swords (the Aegislash line), and dolls (Banette).

* FridgeHorror: The first novel states that Misty has only ever had bad luck with men, and considering the novelization also specifies that ten-year-olds are legally considered adults, [[BrainBleach that probably doesn't mean anything good...]]
* FridgeLogic: If real animals aren't supposed to exist in the world Pokémon, then to whom is Prof. Oak differentiating Pokémon from?

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Despite being written by Takeshi Shudo (whom many fans agree [[MyRealDaddy was the only top creative mind who wanted to do more]] than plug merchandise with [[StrictlyFormula an episodic formula]]), seeing his [[DarkerAndEdgier darker and generally]] [[BuffySpeak crapsack-ier]] interpretation of the ''Pokémon'' world (in which, for example, Gym Leaders are disqualified for losing three times and as such bribe challengers to lose for large amounts of money) can be rather off-putting for some, even those who enjoy the episodes and movies he wrote.
