Hugh punching the Plasma Grunt. Unexpected, but a bit humorous.
Hugh actually being a part of the story instead of some random neighbor who stalks you and randomly challenges you to battles, then goes off to rebuild his ego.
The champion in B/W2 taking after Lance and using Pokemon that look vaguely draconic in addition to actual dragon types.
The brainwashing/borderline-child abuse storyline with N and Ghetsis was pretty unexpected.
And then in BW2, never expected N to still call Ghetsis his father.
But in more general terms, that moment when the trainers use Potions or other healing items. It's so random and rare that I never expect it.
down to last Pokemon on each team, and the odds are against me, then I get a critical hit after the oponent missed his attack.
Bugs ain't afraid of the Dark
I've had a few unexpected. Most involving shinies.
First Emerald file, running around on Rt 19(?), run into a shiny Linoone. I had no clue what a shiny Pokemon was back then. I caught it just cuz I thought it was weird. Still have it. On my white version. And now, every new emerald file I start, I end up with a shiny zigzagoon.
First HG file, was running through the grass in Rt 36, right before Ecruteak. I thought "Oh I won't run into any Pokemon.", and then BAM. Shiny Pidgey.
First SS file, going to try and catch a Larvitar at Mt. Silver. Outside, near the Pokemon Center, I run into a shiny Ponyta before I use any repels. Caught it. Use repels until I get where Larvitars are. Repel wears off, run into a Larvitar. Shiny. Two shinies in a row. Happiest moment of my life.
First White file. Breeding Joltik. I had five eggs in my part. Biking around for them to hatch, not really paying attention when they hatch. Third egg hatches.. I think.. "Huh. I thought its eyes were blue..eh I wasn't paying attention. Maybe I'm wrong." Go into party, it's shiny. Unfortunately it wasn't the nature I wanted. But it was Quirky.. so it more or less worked for me.
Now for non shiny moments:
Giovanni/Silver relationship. Never saw that coming.
Cobalion's random appearance in BW2
BW2 rival's starter came from an egg. Not Bianca.
Catching Rayquaza in SS and it's Modest nature with perfect Sp Atk.

Shinies: *not all from same game*
Real Life Team:
Seeing the intro movie for B/W1. The scene where they put the crown on his head really surprised me.

I'm in desperate need of maxing out my Pokemon's Power Points! I would greatly appreciate anyone's help if he/she has 999 PP Max's, or I can trade for the items themselves. Please PM!
I was exploring the Sinnoh safari zone with the dowsing machine, looking for items. I happened to have a pokemon encounter and -BAM- shiny Marill, the first shiny I'd ever seen (outside of the internet). Fortunately, I was able to catch it. I don't like Marill all that much, but I like its shiny sprite, because it reminds me of mint ice cream.
I'm looking for a Serperior named Serpedera. It'll be at lvl 98 or above. If you happen to have such a pokemon please PM me.

Pokeathlon Pokedex: 493/493- COMPLETED!!! (01-05-13)
In Ruby, I remember looking around Mt. Pyre for a Chimecho to add to the Pokedex and *BOOM* a red Duskull appears!
I was curious as to why it was red and not grey, so I caught it only to realize it was Shiny. And it now holds the dubious honor for my first Shiny.
When I was wandering around at the Power Plant in Pokémon Blue and suddenly I found Zapdos at the end of the facility.
I wasn't expecting that, specially because the generic bird sprite didn't help at all:
Fortunately I managed to catch it xD I didn't save before the battle.
Pretty much every sudden thing in White 2, mostly because for once I didn't look at the games much before getting it. This includes finding that Team Plasma actually got Kyurem, Cobalion appearing out of nowhere (and Virizion and Terrakion's subsequent appearances), and random wild Pokemon I didn't expect such as Riolu, and finding that Magnemite was in the game.

"Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe used to think Justin Bieber was a woman."
Well, this happened to me today actually! The most unexpected thing happened in my White 2 game, after I had defeated Ghetsis. I went back to the pokecenter in Lacunosa town and Nurse Joy suddenly started telling me my pokemon had Pokerus! I naturally flipped a table and panicked since I really, really had not been expecting that but I was happy as could be. I forgot about that little virus...
The only other thing that took me off guard was when I was restarting my HeartGold game, planning on getting Totodile and the Chikorita was shiny. I flipped three tables when that happened...
