Reason: videos of credits, if possible; list of spin-offs with in-game credits, games that can skip them, in other languages.
The playing of credits signals the end of the main plot of a Pokémon video game. Credits list all the staff that worked on the game, including writers, artists, and translators.
Credits are played at the end of the main plot – in the main series, once the Elite Four and Champion have been defeated. In Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, the credits also appear every time the player defeats Red. In Black and White, the credits also appear when the player defeats Ghetsis. In some games, the credits show the player returning to the hometown and/or flashbacks of the adventure. In the Generation VI games, a battle against an important character occurs during the credits.
Beginning with Generation VII, the credits no longer replay after every subsequent Champion battle.
Unlike some other games, Pokémon games have more adventures after the credits have been played. These additional quests include catching Legendary Pokémon, challenging the Battle Frontier, and obtaining the National Pokédex.
In side games, the credits usually roll after passing a critical point in the storyline, such as the player saving Almia from the Incredible Machine (in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia), or defeating Rayquaza (in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team).
