Is there anything missable in this game?

Excluding anything that requires online capabilities. Just curious is there are any missables in the base game.

Technically, yes. If you KO any legendary in the post-game, they vanish and you can't get their pokedex entry. Why you would KO a legendary instead of capturing it (on purpose) is beyond me.

This only applies to post-game legendaries. The four you encounter during the story can be KO'd, but will reappear at a higher level for the post-game.


Other than that, nothing's missable aside from a few hold items you can steal, all of which can be found/purchased elsewhere. There's a couple of places that seem like they'd have missables, but there's either no items there or you can access it again in the post-game.

Ever since Platinum, anything you only get one of per game can be rebattled if you happen to KO or run from it. All that's required is defeating the Elite 4 again to have them respawn.

It's not possible to steal items from trainers anymore. Well, it is, but you don't keep them after the battle is over.

Wasn't aware of either of those facts. Good to know.

And fortunately, it's not possible for trainers to steal items from YOU any more, either. I actually had a trainer try to take something important from me (I think it was my Lucky Egg!) but I got it back.

(And you'll have to forgive the late response. My computer was refusing to load GameFAQs for a bit.)

You might not get to enter N's Castle if you don't follow the Zoroark.

I thought the things on the ship were missable, are they not? I don't have a way to confirm myself. AFAIK it was a power item, a TM, and some junk.

No that things always there, I didn't follow it until way after finishing the main game b/c I wanted to RNG latias before Reshriam.

You can re-enter the ship in postgame, don't worry about that.
