* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Happens a lot with [=NPCs=] depending on who's playing them.
* AngstDissonance: As is to be expected from a work involving multiple writers, the assorted traumas that the characters undergo are treated with varying levels of severity.
* ArcFatigue:
** The Unova Arc was the longest arc pre-GC, and it ''dragged on'' for about a month and a half before the group finally decided that enough was enough and did a TimeSkip.
** The GC Arc, as mentioned before, was even longer.
** PMD-R has gained this reputation as well, going on for over ''[[UpToEleven four months]]'' (over 1000 pages)
** It was immediately followed by Kanjoh-2, which went on for a bit over seven months.
** Since Unova-2, Arcs have been generally expected to go at least 3 months, though it's generally been longer since Kalos.
** [=RTAU=] is technically still ongoing.
* ArchivePanic: The RP has been around a few years and has averaged something between 4000 and 5000 pages each year.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments: [[Awesome/WeAreAllPokemonTrainers Has its own page.]]
* BaseBreaker: Herbert/Lucius. Well-rounded and interesting character with [[JerkassWoobie perfectly reasonable justifications for acting the way he does]], or utterly unlikeable JerkSue whose confrontational nature combined with a tendency to hold grudges only ever creates problems and whose CharacterDevelopment [[FlatCharacter never seems to go anywhere meaningful?]]
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Several back when this thread was in Forum Games, mainly due to random people who don't want to participate in the arcs showing up and doing stand-alones. Highlights include:
** [[InsurmountableWaistHighFence "Stupid trees, how do you go around them?"]]
** A Gengar being punched in the face.
** A Guitarist trying to use his Loudred as a Guitar Amp.
** Also the Weavile with the colorful lights that come out of his head somehow. [[ChekhovsGunman Or so it seems at first]]...
** A group of Kecleon having a party inside a large bush (a secret base DS made when she visited Hoenn once) on route 120, dancing to O-Zone's ''Dragostea Din Tei''.
** Someone running onscreen with a giant bomb, it exploding. Though it did go completely unacknwoledged.
** "[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI It's dangerous to go alone! Take these!]]"
** [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12971269370A74820100&page=467#11662 Kyurem accidentally calling DS' Xtransceiver]]. (one has to wonder who it was really trying to call...) Somewhat subverted later on when this leads to the discovery that only those who have Minds of Crystal are capable of understanding Kyurem's speech.
** [[{{Gordy}} The crossdressing madman with red pantyhoes on his head robbing a thrift store]] in Viridian City.
** A giant tortilla attacking Dewford, and after it's defeated, a Gyarados appears, sings an aria and takes the remains with it back to the ocean.
** A Blissey, a bunch of Chansey and Audino, and a Happiny [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12971269370A74820100&page=6326#158128 raid Spinda's Café.]]
** [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12971269370A74820100&page=10408#260200 How Akim'bleer's egg got where it did]]
** Zeal's April Fools Day 2014 posts, introducing several characters and concepts out of the blue and not having referred to them since.
%%* CompleteMonster:
%%** 'M.
%%** Napoleon, ''Napoleon'', '''NAPOLEON'''!
* DieForOurShip: Quite a few in-universe fanfic writers had this in mind when shipping the trainers.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Goggles, due to his hilarious non sequiturs and overall goofiness. Also, the fact that he [[ObfuscatingStupidity may]] be [[MetaGuy Fourth Wall aware.]]
* FunnyMoments: [[Funny/WeAreAllPokemonTrainers Has its own page]].
%%* GeniusBonus:
%%** Most of Tagg's Pokémon have this.
* GrowingTheBeard: This RP probably really started to get good once the PMD arc started and the Pokemon started getting personalities, and has been getting better as every year goes by.
* HeartwarmingMoments: [[Heartwarming/WeAreAllPokemonTrainers Has its own page.]]
* HarsherInHindsight:
** Crewe telling Allen that "If they have equipment here to fix her, I'd rather trust her to scientists we absolutely know aren't evil." becomes this after he's revealed as Alexiel.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** While inside 'M's organic core, DS has to hold Anom's hand in order to help him get through it without freaking out. One of the first things that seem to come to Anom's mind about this is "I hope Wolf doesn't misinterpret this." Later on, Anom and Wolf get heart swapped by a Manaphy at the beginning of the Oblivia arc. Not wanting to tell the others, they decide to pretend to be eachother. This leads to some interactions between Anom-pretending-to-be-Wolf and DS that cause the real Wolf to essentially become jealous of ''himself''.
** Cilan dyed Anom's hair green at one point early on in the Unova arc. And as mentioned above, Anom later ended up switching bodies with Wolf, who has green hair.
** A lot of meta-conversations and in-RP conversations have subjects that become this trope later on.
** Some of the events back during the Unova arc seems to predict some of the things that would later be revealed to be part of the plot in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2''.
** Zero remarks [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12971269370A74820100&page=4367#109166 here]] about Dittos having twins. Later, Straw meets Eskay's Ditto, Doopliss, who looks exactly like Straw in human form, only with a goatee.
** After completing a Wipeout-based challenge in Unova-1, Tagg makes a comment about [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12971269370A74820100&page=747#18653 being surprised about how well he did on it]]. Contrasting that with his athletic prowess now...
* HoYay:
** [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12971269370A74820100&page=9665#241611 Sam deciding to troll the fangirls]] at J-Con 2013.
** Herbert and Duke's bromance has many, many of these moments. Duke thinks of Herbert as a little brother and Herbert himself thinks of him as a big brother, even if he's not as likely to say that out loud, but he often acts as if he has a crush on his "big brother". Made more obvious by the scene where Herbert was upset with Duke ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext because he liked]]'' ''[[OfficialCouple Lyuri]]'' ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext more than him]]'', which sounds awkward even in context.
* IdiosyncraticShipNaming: Names for some of the ships exists in the meta. Some examples:
** [=BlueFiendShipping=]: Nadia♥Lake.
** [=CarefulShipping=]: Woolly♥Unite.
** [=GuardianShipping=]: Teala♥Maekrite.
** [=HarvestShipping=]: Basket♥Barley, Basket's mate in the AU.
** [=PechaShipping=]: Basket♥Maekrite.
** [=PurpleShipping=]: Flare♥Wulfric.
** [=BlueSkyeShipping=]: Lake♥Skye
** [=DesertShipping=]: Goggles♥Spectrum
** [=SproutShipping=]: Marceline♥Lily
* IdiotPlot: Just try to make sense of Pies' plot.
%%* JerkassWoobie: Herbert has moments like this.
* LesYay:
** When Mira the Mienfoo first meets DS and her team, and witnesses Artemis the Liepard fight off a Beartic, Artemis has BishieSparkle from Mira's point of view. Artemis later sees Mira the same way after Mira evolves into Mienshao.
** When DS is trying to figure out her feelings after Wolf kisses her Mira talks about how one sometimes have to deal with discovering feelings one has never felt before when they meet someone special. While Mira is talking about this, she's staring at Artemis.
** Marceline the Gardevoir had a kinda PrecociousCrush (It's complicated...) on Lily the Lilligant almost since she evolved into a Kirlia, which was at some point reciprocated.
* LauncherOfAThousandShips:
** Psyche had three ships sailing with her within her first few weeks of joining, one of those three Eskay x Psyche became canon.
** Skye has also become one, having various ships with several others, notably, Luke, Caliburn, and Diane, the last of the three eventually becoming canon.
** Herbert, as a new PC, had already gained three ships: Herbert x 'Sarah', Herbert x Sakura, and Herbert x Carol. Later, Crewe X Herbert also became a thing. To say nothing of his HoYay with Sam and Joseph...
** Crewe has an incredibly good name for {{Portmanteau Ship Name}}s; Crab, Craw, Crowe, Cruke, Crouch, Creddler, Mewe, Craisy, Cryche, Viewe, Crewebert, Creskay, Skewe, Criane, Crent...
* MarySue:
** Defied. Daisy ''tries'' to be this, and Gamer sometimes lapses into this, but the rest of the group keeps it under wraps well enough that they have their losses and flaws just like everyone else.
%%** Leena
%%** Lampshaded with Snowman the Mew.
* MemeticBadass:
** Lake, who after all is a mon on his own and has defeated ''Red'' twice. Since he's his own mon now, he can also ''speak in the discussion thread''. And in the PEFE Chatroom, where he is the most badass (and adorable) creature imaginable, capable of using Judgment among other equally incredibly and fictonal attacks.
** Mike the Techie. He's basically the WAAPT equivalent of Creator/ChuckNorris now.
* MemeticMolester: Cynthia's Milotic. Very coyly referencing DS.
* MemeticMutation:
** Shahinne's "Silly Pidgeys~"
** Whenever two characters with the same name meet each other, they are referred to as [NAME] 1 and [NAME] A
** X x Y OTP!
** Love Seat ([[CrackShip Jacob X Argentum]]) for life!
** luke_how_wonderful.ogg[[labelnote:Explanation]]"Ohohoho, how ''wonderful''", as uttered by Luke.[[/labelnote]]
* MemeticSexGod: Herbert/Lucius, his [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys sort of dark and brooding nature may have helped.]]
** Jason Maxwell, big time. A possible factor might be his NiceGuy demeanor as well as being slightly [[{{Adorkable}} goofy,]] which make him out to be TheCharmer.
** Duke, [[CluelessChickMagnet for]] [[{{Hunk}} a]] [[ShirtlessScene variety]] [[PrettyBoy of]] [[NiceGuy reasons.]] Bonus points for being a mentor figure for the other two above, unlike them though, he has no problems staying loyal to his girlfriend.
** Interestingly, Joseph is becoming this, what with having at least three EldritchAbominations after him.
%%* {{Moe}}:
%%** Portales.
%%** Snowman the Mew, [[VerbalTic Tee Hee~!]]
%%** Sakura, for quite a few reasons.
%%** Sylva
* MoralEventHorizon:
** What 'M did to the children that it abducted from the daycare.
** AU!Fool brutally killing several Pokemon and their trainer Samuel, mainly because he refused to join.
* MostAnnoyingSound: Valkon's stupidity to Hax.
* NightmareFuel: [[NightmareFuel/WeAreAllPokemonTrainers Has its own page.]]
* NoYay: Luke and DS' reactions to being shipped with their respective archenemies [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Proton]] and [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Cyrus]].
* OneSceneWonder:
** Bonnie the Weavile showed up for a very short time.
** Tagg's Lanturn made one appearance during the Unova arc.
* ParanoiaFuel:
** Ribbon's Pokédex entry seems to had created this for Chase back when she was a Gothita. He got over it pretty fast, though.
** Copahue's poor movepool initially makes him afraid that he will be an HM Slave.
** Cipher in general is this for Sakura as well as NightmareFuel
** Nightmare and Spirit, a pair of Delta Stantler with Illusion. They're able to hide themselves from even trained Aurics and Psychics.
* PortmanteauCoupleName: Quite a few were thought up during the shipping discussion. Some examples:
** Kenny -- Kensei♥Sunny
** Jamer -- Jane♥Gamer
** Mezzery -- Mezzopiano♥Every
** Vinoa (or [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Rinoa]]) -- Vinollo♥Roa
** Crab -- Crewe♥Jab
** Treelip -- Treeo♥Tulip
** Psychay -- Eskay♥Psyche
** [=MarceLily=] Marceline (Psyche's Gardevoir) ♥ Lily (Trip's Lilligant)
** Duniree -- Dune♥Deziree
* RealWomenNeverWearDresses: Eliza is by ''far'' the most feminine member of Jane's Unova team.
* {{Squick}}: A lot of Jane's reactions to Gamer.
* TearJerker: [[{{TearJerker/WeAreAllPokemonTrainers}} Has its own page.]]
* TheWoobie: [[{{Woobie/WeAreAllPokemonTrainers}} Has its own page.]]
* ViewerGenderConfusion:
** Daisy didn't realize that Josie the Medicham was male. To be fair, 'Josie' is a [[GenderBlenderName rather feminine name]].
** Happens again, this time with Virizion. The Mysterious Old Man claimed that it is male, but after an extensive debate between everyone, a verdict was found and now Virizion has been decided to be female.
** Pentigan's Pokémon form is a Lopunny.
** Most of the team was confused as to whether Mezzo was a boy or girl when she first joined. During the GC Arc, she invoked this in the fanbase by making contradictory claims about her gender.
** Carl (A male Panpour) tries to avert this by not evolving.
** Pankaja is male, despite being a female name.
