Ok so far these games have been the first ones where:

-Pokemon Mass Murder is part of the story
-Wars with pokemon being used as tools and being killed are confirmed to exist in this universe
-An NPC dies out of screen, leaving you his inheritance
-Shapeshifter robotic super villains appear
-A building has a bathroom, confirming humans in this universe do poop
-A character is actually wounded and another one is being mind controlled by an unseen villain and stealing pokemon
-A hospital for humans is mentioned

Am I missing something?

It’s the first game where you actually get a medal and a parade (and some recognition!) for saving the world!

Also: Looker is so awesome, we need a spin-off game (screw that, a whole series of games) based around him!
