** [[spoiler:Professor Oak]]'s dying words. Most notably, him telling Ash [[spoiler:about the adventure they unknowingly had together in ''Pokemon [=4Ever=]'', how Oak met Ash's mother (revealing to Ash in the process that she was killed in the fight) and how he caught Ash's Pikachu specially for him as a gift]]. Worse still, up to this point, Ash had been led to believe that [[spoiler:his mom had survived and was hiding somewhere. He has to restrain himself upon learning that wasn't true]].

** Seymour the Scientist being evacuated to space by the Clefairy; despite how much he had dreamed of such a thing in the past he weeps, [[YouCantGoHomeAgain for it comes at the cost that he'll never be able to return home to Earth again.]]]] Additionally, the Clefairy mention to him that they're bringing a few humans with them for the purposes of potentially restarting the human race somewhere else. [[DeconstructedTrope Far from being happy about this]], Seymour panics, worrying about all the horrible what-ifs (his lack of experience with women or parenting, the possibility that the woman they chose will hate him, etc.) and is terrified that humanity could end up dying out because of him.

Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: Many, but stand outs include...
** The death of [[spoiler:Sabrina]].
** The ''entire'' Battle of Goldenrod. In particular, the deaths of [[spoiler:Whitney's Miltanks and uncle, May's Skitty, Drew's Butterfree and Solidad's Lapras]] and [[spoiler:Solidad herself]] pulling a HeroicSacrifice. Doubles as NightmareFuel.

* AuthorsSavingThrow - Readers of the ''The Subsistence'' were baffled by Dawn's sudden prowess with guns with most complaining that it was an AssPull. Then Cornova wrote ''The Incipience'' and did some minor rewriting which better explained Dawn's sudden gain of ImprobableAimingSkills

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: This fic pulls no punches about how WarIsHell and how starting a war for "righteous" reasons inevitably leads to suffering and death
* {{Squick}}: Well, considering the nature of the story....but a non-violent example is Ash's feelings for Dawn. He's fourteen, but she's ten (taken from the fact that you start your journey at ten and she just started hers)

* HolyShitQuotient - ''Extreme''. Many of the fight scenes are absolutely dazzling.
** Pikachu's unrestrained fight against AJ's Sandslash is one of the series' most devastating one-on-one confrontations between non-Legendary Pokémon. It's enough to terrify a whole tribe of wild Pikachu into polite diplomacy.

* CompleteMonster: Ho-oh starts off as a WellIntentionedExtremist, wanting to make a utopia for Pokemon by only killing off Humans and trying to limit collateral damage. He goes from that to this trope once he starts engaging in things like [[WithUsOrAgainstUs killing Pokémon]] simply because they don't agree with him and destroying the environment.

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: The effects of the war are depicted realistically and there is a fairly obvious WarIsHell message. Unfortunately, few of the reviewers notice this, instead choosing to focus on the elaborate fight scenes.
