Horse Pokémon Rapidash, Ponyta, and Mudsdale are in this game and can faint in battle after running out of HP, but are okay if you use a Revive or heal them at a Pokémon Center.

Mabostiff, Arvin's elderly and Ill dog Pokémon, recovers little by little as he is fed the Herba Mystica. While the final herb initially seems not to work, causing momentary worry that he will not recover from his illness, it does eventually bring the dog back to full health. By the end of the game, he's strong and healthy enough to be the strongest Pokémon on Arvin's team.

A ghost type Pokemon Houndstone is mentioned in it's Pokedex entry to be the reborn spirit of a lovingly mourned Pokemon. While the reborn pokemon is a dog, whatever Pokemon it was originally is not clarified.

Pokémon canonically enjoy fighting though, so no need to worry about the dog Pokémon not liking it.

Numerous bug-type Pokemon that look like everything from spiders to beetles to butterflies.

Dragon Pokémon are in this game, and one of them (Dragapult) is part ghost type, but they don’t die aside from fainting in battle. They can be revived with a Revive item or at a Pokémon Center.

There are a few Pokemon very obviously based on snakes, with snake-themed names and appearances. They are spread throughout the game.

Cat Pokémon are in the game, but as other people have said they don’t die aside from fainting in battle and they can be revived.

The players rival Nemona is implied to secretly be following them throughout their gym challenge so she can monitor their progress and appropriately match their ability in battle, however this is not portrayed in a negative light and the player character never gives any indication that it bothers them.

Sort of. There’s a Pokémon move called Wrap used by many snake or serpentine like Pokémon (as well as bugs and Pokémon with tentacles and Pokémon with vines) can bind Pokémon and give them damage for several turns. The effect goes away after a while.

That can be said for many of the items in sandwiches really, such as hamburger can be fed to Tauros - a Bull Pokémon. (Also I named my Lechonk Bacon because it’s funny despite being vegetarian and hating bacon)

Some pokemon can use fire to attack their opponents, and there is a Burn status effect, but nothing is ever portrayed graphically.

No gore at all in Pokémon games, all moves used in battle are just cartoon violence with magic like attacks.

A professional snowboarder is mentioned to have had a career ending injury, but the details of the injury are not made explicit and happen before the game begins.

Early on the player falls off a cliff but is stopped from being injured by the Pokemon Rotom which lives in their smartphone slowing their fall before they hit the ground. This will also happen if the player jumps off a cliff without the use of their rideable pokemon. They are never injured from this.

This happens again where (SPOILERS) an AI of said character has to sacrifice themselves by going many years into the past/future (depending on what game you’re playing) to prevent a disaster from happening.

A parent is revealed to have died offscreen before the game began. The death isn't described very specifically, but they do leave behind a child who has to come to grips with the loss.

Ghost-type Pokémon are common, especially at night. Some of their Pokédex entries describe them having malevolent behavior or sapping energy from the living. Catching them and reading those entries is optional, and accidental encounters can be escaped if you make sure to carry Poké Dolls, which are sold at any Pokémon Center.

An AI encountered near the end of the storyline is forced to fight you against its wishes, which looks a lot like possession (moving against its will, sometimes verbally objecting to its own actions, etc)

The Pokemon Stunky and Skuntank make farting sounds.

The player and their Pokémon are sometimes seen being grossed out by food when they’re eating it, but they don’t throw up. The eating animation kind of resembles throwing up too, but that’s due to the animation not being done very well. They’re just eating very intently.

Nobody is seen injured in there, but people might be laying down on the beds and may be complaining about feeling sick or hurt. But no visible injuries.

The mount Pokémon (Koraidon/Miraidon, depending on game version) is implied to have some psychological trauma, which is why it refuses to battle. It's not touched on very frequently, however, only brought up in a few cutscenes on the Path of Legends questline and in the endgame.

(SPOILERS) Not really “dying”. A character who is an AI ends up traveling far into the future/past (depending on the game) in order to stop a catastrophe from happening, which could be comparable to suicide. They’re presumably alive after traveling, but we don’t know for sure.

Not by design, but due to visual glitches (as of 1.0.0 and 1.0.1), textures can sometimes rapidly flicker in and out of existence over large areas of the screen.

Pokémon can hatch from eggs and some Pokémon are essentially “baby” forms of Pokémon, such as Pichu being a baby Pikachu. But no human babies.

There are no skirts or dresses available for the player to wear, but clothes aren’t gender locked. NPCs will sometimes compliment the character’s fashion sense. So nobody is made fun of for wearing feminine or masculine clothes.

While a character dies before the events of the game, they’re not explicitly stated to be LGBTQ.

People may name their character or Pokémon after N words, but most of them are blocked by the in game swear filter. However people may evade this by misspelling a word or replacing letters with numbers.

One random NPC you can battle comments about having “thick fat” that protects him from cold weather, referencing the ability Thick Fat. This is lighthearted and not really meant to be making fun of anybody. But worth mentioning.

Nobody died during the events of the story, however someone does die prior to the events of the game. They’re not black though, they don’t really have a specific race either but as the game location is based off of Spain they could be seen as Hispanic.

Fully evolved Pokémon can breed with their unevolved selves (eg Pikachu and Raichu) but that doesn’t really count.

Technically inbreeding of pokemon is possible as the game doesn't track whether any two pokemon are related or not, but it's not shown on-screen and hand-waved as an egg just mysteriously appearing in your basket.

Mr. Hassel, one of the Elite Four and the art teacher at Naranja/Uva Academy, bursts into tears of joy when he's defeated in battle. However, nobody ever ridicules him, and they just accept that he wears his heart on his sleeve. Hassel himself sometimes apologizes for it, but mostly because he's your teacher and he feels it's improper to lose his composure in front of a student - not because it's "unmanly" or anything like that.

One character (who is noticeably pale and tired-looking) talks about being extremely ill in the past. It's unclear whether this was an isolated event or an ongoing illness that he happens to have under control during the events of the game.

Bittersweet, really. Something sad happens, but the character is comforted by his new friends who are like “found family” to him.

To add to the above comment, there are no tire screeching sounds when riding on Koraidon. If this sound would bother you, it can be easily avoided by playing Scarlet version instead of Violet.

No, but the pokedex description of Donphan describes it as being unphased by the force of a car hitting it.

Not nuclear, but several Pokémon moves involve explosions. Wild Electrode and Voltorb can be seen exploding in the overworld too.

No blood or gore during fights. Pokémon battles are very cartoony. Though (SPOILERS) a character is covered in crystals near the end of the game which sort of resembles stylized gore.

No one is at risk of drowning. Even if the player accidentally falls into water (before obtaining the ability to traverse it,) the screen will fade and read "You managed to scramble back out of the water!" before putting you back on the last solid surface you were on.
