* AnachronismStew: The strip mixes elements from both the Gen I originals (UI elements, battle screen, black and white presentation) and the Gen III remakes (character and building designs, Green, movesets).



* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Brock thinks it's funny that some Trainers chose a Fire-type starter before coming to his Gym first (Both of Brock's Pokémon are dual-type Rock/Ground, both of which have type advantages over the Fire-type, which in short would make for a humiliating defeat to Red's Charmander). He's utterly humiliated when he finds out Charmander can learn Metal Claw, possibly due to GenreBlindness as Charmander can for FireRed/LeafGreen but couldn't in the original games.

* OrphanedEtymology: The Pokedex lists Pikachu as a "Mouse", something that shouldn't exist given that all the living creatures in-universe are Mons. Lampshaded by Green.

Added DiffLines:

** Except in the actual games, the encounter with Blue is north of Cerulean, and you have to pass through the city before that encounter. If you don't stop at the Pokémon Center, that's your fault.

* TheSilentBob: Subverted. Red may play this trope straight, but WordOfGod says that the addition of the Pokédex allows the main character to have a voice (even if it is one he very rarely agrees with).
