->The whole world we have reset, our presence shall never be known. Those who have to leave their children and partners…it is a pain no one has the capability of understanding by themselves.


Pokeumans is a fanfic written by [=Pokemonmanic3595=], which has in turn spawned hundreds of spinoff stories and a SharedUniverse. The original series focused on a Lucario Pokeuman named Brandon in the secret base under [[BigApplesauce Long Island]] in America and his battles against the Mewtwo scientist, [[BigBad Mr. X]].

[[TheMasquerade Hidden from everyday society]], there are certain people who can transform into Pokemon. These are called Pokeumans. Some want to live in peace with humanity, while others believe that they are a [[CantArgueWithElves superior race]].

But not all is well. A SecretWar rages between the Pokeuman and the Pokextinction organizations. The former sees themselves as rebels, hiding from humanity due to fear of persecution or fighting against an oppressive system. The latter, on the other hand, fear the Pokeuman want a world ruled by only Pokeuman and thus, they strive to serve as [[TheMenInBlack humanities’ guardians]].

----
!!Tropes found in the original Pokeumans series include:
* ActionGirl: Starr and Amy, most notably.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Chapter 8 (Auditorium Advocates).
* {{Adorkable}}: Cameron Taylor, the bipedal Hippopotas.
* TheAgeless: Mr. X apparently hasn't aged a day since the accident 100 years ago. [[spoiler: Neither has Asula.]]
* TheApprentice: AB the Riolu, who becomes Brandon's protegee.
* AprilFoolsDay:
** For April 1st 2013, a joke version of the next chapter was released where about ten paragraphs in [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere a random Groudon appeared out of nowhere]] [[HilarityEnsues and killed everyone in a ridiculous overblown fashion.]]
** InUniverse example: See NoodleIncident.
* AlternateIdentityAmnesia:
** When [[spoiler: Mew]]'s soul is put into Darren's body, each time they switch control they don't remember anything the other saw or did.
** When Brandon becomes [[spoiler: Mega Brandon]], he doesn't remember anything he did in that form. [[KillEmAll Which is a problem]], because then Andy gets to [[AmnesiacDissonance torment him with it]]. In a sense, this is more like TheCorruption since it doesn't exist until he is exposed to [[spoiler: Lucarionite]].
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Commander Sarmen Cuczoff of the Long Island PRT.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Reggie the Grovyle delivers a beatdown to the MSN gang single-handedly while analysing their pathetic tactics and giving a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech as he does. Suffice to say, [[TookALevelInBadass levels in badass were taken.]]
* BadassBookworm: Starr the Lucario, who is often seen reading in their dorm. She has her own moments of awesome, particularly at the end of Chapter 9.
* BambooTechnology: [[spoiler: The original Pokemon have lots of this, given how simply and in tune with nature they live.]]
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Asula the Milotic, kind and wise headmistress of the Long Island base.
* BeautyIsBad: In contrast to Asula, [[spoiler:Mindy the Lopunny.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes:
** When Asula is angry, [[UnstoppableRage she's ''really'' angry.]] She even has GlowingEyesOfDoom.
** Amy, despite being TheHeart, did not become an Honorary Elite without picking up certain skills.
** [[spoiler: Cameron gets to have a go at this too (see SuperpoweredEvilSide).]]
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Sakato Hanaturo the Vaporeon hardly says anything, although [[CharacterDevelopment he opens up with time]], and is too consumed by his training to spend time with people at the beginning of the story. But that training has made him a formidible fighter.
* BigApplesauce: The 'Dimensional Gems hunt' mini-arc takes place in and around New York City.
* BigBad: Mr. X.
* BigBrotherMentor: Reggie is this to Brandon and TeamDad to everyone else in the main team.
* BigDamnHeroes: Ch. 9 has a mild one. Ch. 17 has an ''awesome'' one.
* BigEater: Mike the Ditto, particularly in his Munchlax form.
* BigFun: William the Snorlax.
* BigGood: Asula. The Even Bigger Good is Mew.
* BullyingADragon: The MSN gang spend a lot of time picking on Brandon early in the story and then ''really'' regret it later.
* ButtMonkey: Mike. All the bad stuff seems to happen to him, up to and including getting frozen.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler: Mr. X and Asula.]]
* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: Since Brandon's status as an Energy Channeller means he possesses a huge amount of latent energy, Mr. X is very keen to use Total Absorption to claim that energy for himself on top of his own incredible power. Conveniently doing so would also kill Brandon, so two birds, one stone.
* CaveBehindTheWaterfall: In Chapter 13, one of the Dimensional Gems is stashed here.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Sakato's incredible speed is from intense training. However, it came at the cost of his social life.
* ChekhovMIA: Connor, Zane and Ryan, in the respective histories of Sakato, Nathan and Starr (See DeathByOriginStory).
* TheChosenOne: Brandon seems pretty well qualified to be one of these given the way other characters talk about and his potential. [[spoiler: Then Spiritus says that he's no more special than any other Energy Channeller in history.]]
* ClearMyName: Chapter 4, where Brandon is set up for base treason.
* CoDragons: The X-Trio.
* ConsummateLiar: [[spoiler: Mindy's specialty.]]
* TheCSIEffect: Mike tries to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this when acting as defense lawyer. Suffice to say, it doesn't work.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique:
** Total Absorption, which grants enormous power but is fatal to the enemy (it literally ''consumes their aura'') and can bring out a SuperpoweredEvilSide.
* TheDarkChick: [[spoiler: Mindy.]]
* DeathByOriginStory: Well, more like Capture And Brainwash By Origin Story, but Connor, Zane and Ryan suffer this unfortunate fate to give Sakato, Nathan and Starr something greater to fight for.
* ADeathInTheLimelight: [[spoiler: Officer Johnny. Also Reggie, but [[DownplayedTrope not to the same extent]]. ]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Chapter 14 mostly consists of Brandon going across this and slowly coming back, in response to the death of [[spoiler: Reggie]].
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Chapter 17 sees Brandon and co. beat up no less than [[spoiler: Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Reshiram and Zekrom. In one chapter, although two were offscreen.]]
* DwindlingParty: The team entering [[spoiler: the Poke Dimension]] was about ten or so party members - four chapters later there are three capable party members left, and that's including the ones that joined them mid-arc.
* EldritchLocation: Mt. Temporal and Mt. Reverse.
* EvilTastesGood:
--> '''[[spoiler: Mindy]]:''' ''My uncle and I thought up this delicious scheme.''
* ExpositionBeam: [[spoiler:Zygarde's 10% form]] communicates with Brandon by directly beaming information into his head.
* EyesAreMental: When Darren and [[spoiler: Mew]] occupy the same body in later chapters, their eyes switch between yellow and pink depending on who has direct control.
* FailureKnight: The fact Sakato wasn't fast enough to save his friend Connor is the driving reason behind his training to be the fastest Pokeuman pretty much ever.
* FictionalDocument: Spiritus' memoirs. See TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou below for the debate around the use of the word 'fictional'.
* FightingAShadow: [[spoiler: The legendaries fought by the heroes in the PokeDimension arc were actually mirages to protect the keys to Mt. Origin. Justified in that the legendaries have important jobs maintaining things like the flow of time and the balance of the ecosystem and such.]]
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Elite Four:
** Sanguine: William
** Melancholic: Dustin
** Choleric: Zeke
** Phlegmatic: Rikuto
* FusionDance: The scene in which [[spoiler: thousands and thousands of Zygarde cells fly together into the campsite and unite to form Zygarde's 10% form]].
* GigglingVillain: Andy the Toxicroak. More in the sense of LaughingMad than SissyVillain, but still quite creepy sometimes.
* GoodAllAlong: [[spoiler: Dean.]]
* HealingFactor: Energy Channelling - an intense, instantaneous Healing Factor.
* TheHeart: Amy the Jigglypuff.
* HeroicBSOD: After [[spoiler: Mega Brandon]] kills everyone brutally in the Pokextinction camp, discovering this sends Brandon into a severe depression at the thought of what had happened. Fortunately, it was only temporary. Darren (the only present witness) also retreats after the incident and becomes very reluctant to talk to anyone for a while.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Officer Johnny.]]
* HeroWorshipper: [[TheApprentice AB]] has plenty of this towards Brandon.
* HiddenDepths:
** The MSN, particularly Nat, had some of these uncovered through a CerebusRetcon that showed just how crap it is to be the bullies no-one likes. [[TrueCompanions But at least they have each other.]]
** An enounter between Brandon and Rikuto after the former's Elite Four victory went into more depths of Rikuto's character and history, even if his origin story is several shades of weird.
* HostageForMacGuffin: A very brief one in Chapter 9.
* HulkingOut: [[spoiler: Evil Cameron. Asula gets a go as well, but she mostly just gets bigger and TurnsRed.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Rikuto admits after his fight with Brandon that even when he said he would fight all-out, he was ''still'' holding back. Then again, if he hadn't [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique he would probably have killed Brandon.]]
* ImHavingSoulPains: Exposure to [[spoiler: Yveltal's egg]] causes Brandon's very life force to be drained.
* INeverSaidItWasPoison: [[spoiler: Mindy]] gives herself away by revealing that she knows about the Gemstone Files - something no-one in the base other than Asula would have known of.
* InSeriesNickname: Brandon and Cameron often call each other 'Lucario Friend' and 'Hippopotas Buddy' respectively.
* ISurrenderSuckers: Andy was perfectly alright with Brandon and Darren capturing him and forcing him to accompany them - they lead him right to [[spoiler: Xerneas, the being of life]]. And he had a tracker with him.
* ItsPersonal: After [[spoiler: Mega]] Brandon does serious damage to Andy the Toxicroak, Andy takes putting him down very personally. Personally enough to skip Mr. X's IWantThemAlive plan and just tell him it was [[KillingInSelfDefense a self-defence killing]].
* ItWasADarkAndStormyNight: The start of Chapter 4. {{Subverted}}.
* {{Jerkass}}: MSN.
** JerkassWoobie (see HiddenDepths).
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: AB's real name is used exactly once, and InUniverse only Brandon knows it.
* LargeHam: Larry Bellowicvh the Loudred MC. Practically all of his commentaries are in caps lock.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall:
--> '''Brandon (narration):''' ''I felt like some jerk was'' (making him burn his tail repeatedly) ''on purpose for comedic relief.''
* LeeroyJenkins: Mike. Part of why [[ButtMonkey he gets all the punishment]] is because he charges in head-first, or at least tries to.
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: John Dason has a policy to be respectful and fight fair.
* LightningBruiser: Sakato. And we do mean 'lightning'.
* MacGuffin: The Gemstone Files, and then later the Dimensional Gems.
** MineralMacGuffin
* MadeOfIron: Asula. As well as being ridiculously powerful, she also later shows ability to shrug off Pokextinction lasers that completely incapacitate weaker Pokeumans. Potentially justified in [[spoiler: her really being roughly a hundred years old, and so having had plenty of time to train.]]
* ManySpiritsInsideOfOne: A slightly strange example: [[spoiler: Mew uses Transform to turn himself into a Golurk so that Darren's extracted soul can be transferred into Mew's body, since Ghosts are not tied down to any specific body themselves. However, this means that control of said body flips between Mew and Darren intermittently, which takes quite some time for them to get the hang of.]]
** This also leads to AlternateIdentityAmnesia, which causes them to not remember anything that happens when the other takes control, except for a strange sense of 'Did I just go somewhere?'. [[spoiler: Mew]] even seamlessly finishes his sentence on return.
* MartialPacifist:
** Amy. She's only ten, and hates unnecessary fighting.
** Cameron can also be seen as this, but he'll fight if he absolutely needs to.
** Sakato's Mightyena roommate Austin also qualifies. He absolutely hates conflict.
** All of [[spoiler: the original Pokemon]] live this way, apparently.
* MeaningfulName (specific to the original series): Rikuto Hadoryu's surname translates as 'Surging dragon'.
* MentorOccupationalHazard:
** [[spoiler: Reggie catches quite a nasty dose of this.]]
** Also [[spoiler: Mr. Raso, Cameron's mentor]].
* MissionControl: Darren assumes this role in the early stages of the last story arc.
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Dean of the X-Trio.]]
* MotherNature: [[spoiler: Xerneas]] is practically depicted as being this, with her ability to revitalise anything and gentle, warm persona.
* TheMourningAfter: See DespairEventHorizon.
* MyInstinctsAreShowing: Brandon is often quite embarassed by his wagging tail, especially in early chapters.
* MysteriousWaif: Kyle Uchia the Lucario-Ninetales hybrid. See WaifProphet.
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler: Mr. Raso, who had a strong relation with Cameron.]]
* NiceGirl: Starr, and Amy. [[TheHeart Definitely Amy.]]
* NoodleIncident:
** Mike's prankster tendencies lead to several of these: his 'soap bubble fiasco' is Asula's office, his first attempt at a Groudon transformation and numerous incidents involving 'Electrode bombs'.
** Something non-specified also happened on April Fools Day (in-universe) that involved a guy named Willy getting flushed down the toilet. This lead to Mike being HoistByHisOwnPetard in Chapter 10.
* NotSoDifferent: Andy tries to torment Brandon with this after [[spoiler:Mega Brandon kills a camp of Extinctionists]]. It actually comes very close to working.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: In Chapter 17, only Brandon's side of the team are shown in their battles. That means we never get to see more than a brief glimpse of [[spoiler: the other guys taking down Palkia and Reshiram.]]
* OldMaster: Xatu of Otium Village.
* OneLetterName: [[BigBad Mr.X]].
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler: Asula]], what with managing to force entry into Mr. X's direct hideout in Chapter 17 Part 2 and then only a single chapter later staying back to fight off an entire army of Pokextinctionists. As well as being able to do more damage in one attack than most of the other characters can do in several.
** What was it that ended the Great War? [[spoiler:Zygarde. That's it. Just Zygarde. With its immense power, it restored a state of Order to the damaged world. However, the knowledge that the Order wouldn't last prompted the mass emigration to the Pokedimension]].
* OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: Spiritus tells Brandon that [[spoiler: Xerneas and Yveltal, the original Energy Channellers]] will only descend to help him once he is sufficiently worthy. When that will be, who can say.
* OutOfFocus: Some of the characters that didn't make it into the SpotlightStealingSquad like Travis the Raichu got some of this, [[SubvertedTrope although they have come back in later chapters.]]
* PaintingTheMedium: When Austin the Umbreon uses Confuse Ray on Brandon, Brandon hears [[CallingYourAttacks the names of all Austin's moves]] backwards.
* ThePrankster: Mike is all over this trope.
* [[PreMortemOneLiner Pre-Knockout One Liner]]: A simple and direct one from Chapter 7:
--> '''Dustin:''' ''No! I cannot lose!''
--> '''Brandon:''' ''Yes you can.'' (Iron Tail to the face)
* PunnyName:
** Larry Bellowich the Loudred.
** The author has [[WordOfGod personally confirmed]] that the joke of the Arcanine police officer being named Officer Johnny (when all the police officers in the Pokemon anime are named Officer Jenny) is [[AccidentalPun purely accidental]].
* PuppyDogEyes: AB is prone to use these in attenpts to persuade Brandon, although they don't always work.
* TheQuietOne: Kyle and Sakato in the main squad.
* RageBreakingPoint: [[spoiler: Cameron's leads to a SuperpoweredEvilSide.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler: Asula, who was there when Mr. X's experiment went so wrong in the first place.]]
* RunningGag:
** Brandon getting knocked out. It's been dropped in later installments, but at his peak he was going about five times a chapter.
** Mike getting punched, usually by Starr.
* SealedGoodInACan: See SoulJar.
* {{Seer}}: See WaifProphet.
* ShipTease: Brandon and Starr do a ''lot'' of this.
** ShipperOnDeck: In Chapter 10 Mike gets to play MetaGuy to say what everyone was thinking:
---> ''Anyways, have you and Starr sealed the deal yet? Or are you both going to foolishly convince each other that you're just friends? I've lived with Starr for six months, and I've never seen her look at someone the way she looks at you!''
* ShoutOut:
** Lull periods are marked with reference to them enjoying various games, films, shows etc while giving time for plot points to develop.
** The chief librarian at Long Island is a Noctowl named Mr. [[VidoeGame/{{Okami}} Lechku]].
* {{Sizeshifter}}: John the Dewott's special ability.
* SpiritAdvisor: Spiritus, Brandon's Dream Messenger who meets with him at night in the Dream Dimension. [[spoiler: Later, the spirit of Reggie takes the day shift.]]
* SnowcloneTitle: Chapter 9, of the TropesForDummies variety.
* SoulJar: [[spoiler: After Mr. X rips the souls of Brandon's friends out of their bodies through a twisted form of Energy Channelling, their souls are transferred into capsules.]]
* StalkerWithoutACrush: AB, who follow Brandon almost everywhere. Non-threatingly though - he's a HeroWorshipper.
* StealthInsult: Spiritus admits that the original Pokemon referred to the developing humans as ''Homo Stultus''.
* TheStoic: Sakato somewhat, Kyle very much so.
* StrikeMeDownWithAllYourHatred: After Andy pushes Brandon too far on the way [[spoiler: he killed all the Extinctionists as Mega Brandon]], Brandon snaps and starts beating down on him remorselessly. Andy just lies there and doesn't even try and defend himself.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide:
** After all their other recent hardships, the news of [[spoiler:the death of his mentor]] sends [[spoiler: Cameron]] past RageBreakingPoint and he [[HulkingOut turns into a giant monstrous evil version of himself.]]
** [[spoiler:Mega Lucario Brandon. A barely sentient feral monster that destroys the entire Pokextinction camp in minutes and very nearly kills Andy outright.]]
* TakeAMomentToCatchYourDeath: [[spoiler: Bye bye Reggie. You ''almost'' made it back to the base.]]
* TermsOfEndangerment: Andy the Toxicroak refers to Brandon and Darren as 'My little Duckletts'. While pointing the barrel of a laser gun in their faces.
* TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential: The Training Tower in Otium Village allows for an opportunity for some of this.
* ThirteenIsUnlucky: In a somewhat meta example, Chapter 13 turns out to be very unlucky for [[spoiler: Reggie]].
* {{Transflormation}}: [[spoiler: Xerneas]] was able to escape attack from Pokextinction by turning back into the tree she had been in the form of beforehand.
* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: A lot of Dustin of the Elite Four's strategy boils down to this, using all of his Ghost powers (and his disturbingly-uncaring attitude to his opponents' lives) to screw with them and cheat in any way he likes.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: Starr and Amy in the last story arc.
* WaifProphet: The quiet and enigmatic Kyle Uchia sometimes has visions of the future. One of them is the key to proving Brandon's innocence.
* WhamEpisode: Ch. 17 Part 2, where things take a [[CerebusSyndrome drastic turn for the worse]].
* WhyWontYouDie:
-->'''Andy:''' ''You really are hard to kill, you know that? This is the biggest challenge I've ever had, trying to kill you...''
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity:
** It's somewhat [[ImpliedTrope implied]] that [[spoiler: Total Absorption]] can cause this.
** [[spoiler: Mega Brandon]]. A level of power unshown by anyone else in the story yet, but also a practically feral monster.
* WorldHealingWave: [[spoiler: Xerneas]] emits one of these on being revived, turning the blackened and dead surrounded trees into a lush forest.
* VillainTeleportation: The X-Trio's personal teleportation equipment. The most {{egregious}} user is [[spoiler: Mindy]].
* TheVoiceless: [[spoiler: Giratina, and Zygarde 10%.]]
* XanatosGambit: Mr. X was running a very subtle one of these in Chapter 9: [[spoiler: If the X-Trio and brainwashed prisoners defeated Brandon's team then the war would be as good as won, but if the heroes took their rescued loved ones back to the base then Ryan's deep-seated brainwashing would cause him to bring a horde of Extinctionists to Long Island.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The PreMortemOneLiner before [[spoiler: Mr. X kills Dean.]]
* YouShallNotPass: [[spoiler: Asula]] stops at the end of Chapter 18 Part 1 to enable Brandon to escape from Pokextinction's forces. Given her previous track record of OneManArmy, there's still a chance.
* YourSoulIsMine:
** [[spoiler: Mr. X, casually as you like, [[MoralEventHorizon rips the souls out of Brandon's friends and then fatally consumes Dean's]].]]
** [[spoiler: In fact, this somewhat suggests that the fatal version of this is how Total Absorption works.]]


----
!!Tropes applied to spinoff stories:
* AlternateHistory
* AuthorAppeal: Most people use their favourite species as the protagonist's species. JustifiedTrope - the genes in your ancestry influence your choice of favourite species.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Only the best fighters get to have any authority in a Pokeuman base.
* BalefulPolymorph: Not everyone takes their transformation as well as others. If not because of the species, it's because of the fact they can't leave the base for fear of capture and torture.
** For some, like Andy of the X-Trio in the original story, it's because now YouAreWhatYouHate.
* BloodKnight: Pokemon (and Pokeumans) are naturally combative.
* CallingYourAttacks: Depending on the writer.
* TheCameo: Some protagonists of early spin-offs set in Long Island went beyond cameo to becoming [[BreakoutCharacter major characters of the original series]] (a possible form of OfficialFanSubmittedContent). These aside, there have been a series of smaller cameos as well, and spin-offs cameo each other frequently.
* ChildSoldiers: Given that Pokeumans are prone to transform in their teens, this was sadly inevitable.
* TheChosenMany: TheChosenOne is a common enough that this trope is somewhat present.
* CombatPragmatist: A common element of Pokeuman battles is using moves in ways other than the obvious.
* {{Continuation}}: The spin-off series, extending the group premise to all around the world.
* ContinuitySnarl: In such a large SharedUniverse these are inevitable.
* ExtranormalInstitute: Pokeuman and Pokextinction bases are effectively schools, but with some non-standard lessons.
* FantasticRacism: What the problem was in the first place, and certain species are still disregarded by others even within bases.
* FanVerse
* FirstLawOfGenderBending: If fate/ancestry determines that a boy will become a female-only species, he's going to become a she. This is irreversible. The reverse is also true. If a girl becomes a Nidoking then he's now stuck that way too.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Yep, Pokextinction's got those.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Given how important battling and combat skills are, pacifism is possible but not easy.
* TheGreatOffscreenWar: Often referred to as 'The Great War', the original conflict between people and Pokemon. Few details are known, except that it went really badly for both sides involved.
* HeroesRUs: The Pokeumans organisation, who train students among other things to be prepared to fight Pokextinction.
* HollywoodGenetics: Given the role that genes play in the setting of the group, there has been a little of this and a little UnscientificScience to accompany it. Fortunately, not on the level that it becomes an actual problem.
* HumanFurnitureIsAPainInTheTail
* {{Humanshifting}}: Humanisation tech allows for Pokeumans to become human, although wearing it for too long can cause genetic mutations.
* InterSpeciesRomance: The original Pokemon, who had families with humans. Also any Pokeuman falling in love with any species not the same as them is technically this.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifter: No-one chose this transformation, after all.
* JustWokeUpThatWay: Several transformees discover the beginning of their changes as they look in the mirror in the morning. Bonus points are ''lost'' if they [[DreamingOfThingsToCome just had a dream about being the species in question]] (one of the group's {{Pet Peeve Trope}}s).
* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: The ''Chosen'' series, which everyone (including its own author) acknowledges as a perfect example of how not to do it (particularly its GodModeSue protagonist).
* MadeOfIron[=/=]HealingFactor: Brandon's Energy Channelling aside, it is pretty well established canon that Pokeumans are far more resistant and recover from harm faster than normal humans do.
* MagicGenetics: Powerful ones, even by the normal standard - these hijack your entire genetic code and kick in after ''centuries''.
* ManchurianAgent: Pokextinction uses sleeper agents.
* {{Masquerade}}: Pokeumans and Pokextinction live in societies hidden from humans, hiding in underground bases and erasing the memories of anybody unfortinate enough to discover the secret.
* MemoryWipingCrew: Conducted by both Pokextinction and the [=PRT=] to maintain TheMasquerade.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: This transformation can only be undone temporarily. Once it happens to you, you're in for life.
* MindControlEyes: The brainwashed have glazed over grey eyes.
* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Pokeumans acquire new natural instincts on transforming, to help them handle their new powers/senses/number of legs etc. As well, although there haven't been reported cases of it completely hijacking the original personality, you may also pick up certain traits of the species like those seen in the Pokedex (eg. Zangoose and Seviper instinctively hating each other).
* MutantDraftBoard: Joining either the Pokeumans or Pokextinction is mandatory for a transformee (let's all hope they join the right one), but this isn't enforced by TheGovernment as in other versions of this trope. The reason that it's mandatory in this series is that quite simply if the public knew these transformations were happening [[{{Understatement}} they would freak out]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Don't mess with Pokextinction.
* OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The [[SpiritAdvisor Dream messengers]] often serve as this (given that they're all linked through the Board). Don't expect straight answers in a hurry.
* PsychicDreamsForEveryone: And we mean everyone, to the point of becoming a PetPeeveTrope.
* RecursiveFanfiction
* ReplacementGoldfish: The clones.
* {{Retcon}}: Originally it was Brandon's Energy Chanelling abilities that meant he could recieve messages in the Dream Dimension, but this was changed and now it's open to all.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: You could find pretty much point you liked on the scale somewhere in the group gallery. Most series are more idealistic, but depending on how much of the dramatic/tragic aspects of the premise the author brought out you could find anything on the cynical end from MindRape to KillEmAll.
* SharedUniverse
* SlowTransformation: It takes a full week.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The spelling of Larry the Loudred MC's surname varies depending on the series: variations include Belowitch, Bellowhich and Bellowich.
* SpiritAdvisor
* TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: Disguised Pokeumans look like totally normal people.
* TheyLookLikeUsNow: See {{Humanshifting}}.
* TomatoInTheMirror: The small number of spin-offs that have had the clone realise their true nature have had one of these moments, and usually a bout of CloningBlues.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: See SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: much personal drama and angst has been brought out in multiple series over this issue.
