Have happened for quite a few times in Pokemon Special. With recent update, we see N having somewhat similar abilities that yellow and Lance were said to possess. I have been wondering if it was the same kind of power again but apparently, it seems to be a little different. N doesnt have to be in contact with a pokemon to hear them while yellow and lance does. N also does not seem to possess the ability to heal his pokemon unlike the other two. And he could not hear the voices of pokemon in pokeballs unlike the way yellow can...

So perhaps it is a different power after all..?
