The credits in Pokémon Crystal

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.

In the core series games, the credits play after the player defeats the Elite Four and Champion character of the respective region, and will also play after defeating them again in rematches. In Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, the credits also appear every time the player defeats Red. In Black and White, the credits will also roll after the player defeats Ghetsis. In Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, the credits do not replay after every subsequent Title Defense battle.

In some games, the credits show the player returning to the hometown and/or flashbacks of the player's adventure. In Pokémon X and Y, a battle against AZ occurs during the credits; this only happens after the player clears the Pokémon League for the first time.

As the credits only signify the end of a major story arc, the games is still able to be played after the credits roll. Several features in Pokémon games become unlocked after clearing the main story for the first time. These additional quests vary by game and can include catching new Legendary Pokémon, challenging battle facilities, and obtaining the National Pokédex.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the credits can be replayed by talking to a little girl named Ceci in Jubilife Village.

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).
