** [[http://www.vgcats.com/super/?strip_id=67 This comic]] shows Red is perfectly capable of speech as he whispers to Douche about the nature of Repel Spray. We don't get to see what he says though.

* LampshadeHanging: A possible one on [[http://www.vgcats.com/super/?strip_id=67 page 68]], with Blue remarking that it seemed like Red was in Mt. Moon FOREVER. It took Red ''three'' real life years to get through that cave.

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Subverted. While Blue is busy monologuing about their rivalry, [[http://www.vgcats.com/super/?strip_id=16 Red takes the chance to win the battle]].
* TantrumThrowing: Red snaps when a Zubat keeps making his pokemon confused and chucks a pokeball at it in [[http://www.vgcats.com/super/?strip_id=44 frustration]].

* OlderThanTheyLook: Green is a bit more developed than her being 10 would suggest (though it's possible she's older, as her age is stated by the somewhat senile Professor Oak).

* DistractedByTheSexy: The lame dialog the Youngster spews about shorts is him making an idiot out of himself by Green's prettiness.

* VideogameCrueltyPotential[=/=]VideogamePerversityPotential: Running themes with naming. Red [[HelloInsertNameHere names his rival]] "Douche," and his Pokédex tends to suggest perverse or simply childish names for the Pokémon Red captures. So far, his Pidgey is named Butts ("Butts used Gust!"), but he's decided against naming Metapod Penis ("Penis used Harden!").

Then there's Green's reaction to Oak's revelation that the only Pokemon he has left for her is a Bulbasaur.

* 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.

* 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).
