* HolyShitQuotient: Despite arguments over the game's quality, many agree this game pulls some of the most shocking punches in the entirety of the series so far. The crowner, ''by far'', is [[spoiler: Kyurem ''freezes Hydreigon solid and [[LiterallyShatteredLives shatters him]]!'']] Sure, it [[spoiler:doesn't kill him thanks to [[GaiasVengeance not technically being a living Pokemon in the conventional sense]],]] but at that point, the player doesn't know this. As a result, the common reaction to it is "Holy shit! Did they just [[spoiler: kill someone off on screen in a ''POKÉMON GAME''!?"]]


** Many were surprised to find out Emolga was male before the other characters started referring to him using male pronouns. Adding onto this, if you listen closely, in the background, Emolga's gasp sounds clearly feminine.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The songs "Hope" and "Despair". "Despair" is a very simple tune that, while somewhat light in pitch, manages to be exactly what its title says and then some, while "Hope" is an uplifting tune that manages to sound both anticipatory and excited at once. The FinalBoss music also deserves a mention.
** Per the norm for the series, the music in the ending is incredible with the crowning gem being [[spoiler: Last View of Paradise]] https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Cqdh3TMhrag (spoilers in the outgoing link). The music captures the mood of the scene perfectly, especially the piano part.

* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: General opinion is that, for being a game released so early in the 3DS' life span, it really showed off what the 3DS was capable of at the time. The most notable of which is the [[spoiler:the Rainbow of Hope. ''[[{{Understatement}} ESPECIALLY]]'' with the 3D effects on.]]

** In general, there's a lot of debate over whether Gates or Sky is the best in the series so far. Gates is usually praised for its [[SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome visuals]], the fact that more Pokémon than just the main character and partner get focused on in the main story and join you in dungeons; the removal of a lot of the more annoying features, such as hunger; and making the game generally more faster paced. Sky, however, is praised for it's more in-depth story, which is more subtle due to its FridgeHorror aspects instead of the blatant [[spoiler: end of the world angst]] of Gates, having all the Pokémon up to Gen IV, having more starter Pokémon besides Pikachu, Axew, and the Unova starters, and generally having a more fleshed out supporting cast with surprisingly deep backstories thanks to the 'Special' episodes.

Added DiffLines:

** Axew learns both Dual Chop (which once leveled up enough, can do over 90 damage per hit) and possibly the most broken move in the game; Dragon Dance, which increases speed by one stage (which lets you use it again, which lets you use it again), and increases attack by two stages. Once Dragon Dance is learned, the whole game becomes spamming dual chop, and against stronger enemies, getting 3 Dragon Dances, then spam dual chop. Axew’s only real weakness is Ice types, Steel types, and larger groups of enemies (such as monster houses)


* ThatOneBoss: [[spoiler: Munna. She comes with six flunkies, outnumbering your party nearly two-to-one. Her {{Mooks}} include four Gigalith; they can resist having their HP reach 0 with their "Tough" skill, effectively making defeating them a LuckBasedMission. Toxicroak can use Revenge to soak up damage and dish it back twofold, and Chandelure is a dedicated annoyance with status effects.]] The battle usually consists of [[spoiler:Munna hanging back away from the party and spamming Calm Mind while her {{Mooks}} gang up on you. By the time you clear a few out and go for her, she's got several Calm Minds under her belt and can spam Psybeam, which hits from across the room and can confuse. With Calm Mind boosts, Psybeam can knock away anywhere from 1/2 to 2/3 of your health bar in one go. And that's not factoring that you are guaranteed to have Virizion in your party for this fight; Virizion is weak to Psychic-type moves.]]
