Blood Knight: He almost never runs from a fight, even when he should. AJ doesn't believe in backtracking to heal, and often pushes himself to the point of blacking out. He'll even jump down ledges just to beat up random Hoppip that he spots below.
Cannot Talk to Women: It takes him a ridiculous amount of time to heal with the lady at the Route 26 house, and when a Cooltrainer at the Victory Road gate offered her number, he blew her off and ran off the ledge. It's no wonder he only gets guys' phone numbers.
Can't Use Stairs: During his attempt to leave home, he would attempt to go downstairs, only to immediately go back upstairs. This also happened when he entered Red's house.
Cursed with Awesome: The voices of the mob have lead AJ to heartbreak and hardship, but have also aided him on his quest for vengeance, leading him to victory and the source of his pain: the Helix and Red.
Dancing With Myself: The movement animations have changed slightly in Gen 2: A quick tap of the D-Pad (which is what the chat-to-emulator program does) in a direction the character isn't facing will make him face that direction instead of moving, but while Red's sprite just changed directions, AJ's sprite shuffles its feet in a brief "walking" animation. This leads to him dancing in place more often than making any sort of progress.
Deal with the Devil: On interpretation is that AJ's made a deal◊ with a mass of Unown in order to fight Red and Lord Helix.
Death Glare: Gave a particularly lengthy one to Morty during the Ecruteak gym battle.
Determinator: He's lost 30+ times to the Elite Four, and keeps getting up for more.
Narcissist: When encountering his reflection he has a tendency to stare at himself for ages before moving on, thanks to the chat spamming A. Lookin' good!
Nature Lover: Given how much time he spends in routes, he can be interpreted as this.
Never My Fault: He blames the voices for his poor actions and takes his frustration out on Red and his Pokemon.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: So you beat Lord Helix, but failed to beat the rest of Red's team? Congratulations! You just disrupted the balance of the universe, and now the Hoenn region is in danger of being destroyed within 7 days unless you fully defeat Red.
Did he save the world or just allow for a new host to be claimed by the mob?
Sticky Fingers: AJ sadly has a habit of compulsively trying to catch the Pokemon of other trainers.
Super OCD: Constantly goes back and forth to check on his room when he just left it. AJ also has a habit of checking his empty pockets every so often, and, like Red, updates his Save Journal frequently.
His menu border is one with a lot of symmetry involved.
He's moved on to organizing his Pokémon's moves as well.
Took a Level in Badass: Became the Indigo League Champion, proving his status as the most skilled Trainer in Johto.
Unwitting Pawn: To the voices. By stopping the seven day countdown, AJ only ensured that the voices may continue on to a new host in Hoenn.
Villain Protagonist: From a certain perspective, AJ can be considered this in his quest to destroy the gods.
Weaksauce Weakness: Stairs. He's also terrible at ice skating, which proved troublesome during the Ice Path puzzles.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: He's willing to wipe all Pokémon Gods from the world in his attempt to be rid of the voices for good. When not practicing deicide, AJ is a generally nice guy who loves his mother and is admired by several trainers.
Wild Child: Let's see: He loves nature, is ferocious in combat, and pretty unstable in general. Not to forget that he seems to be adopted, implying that his true parents may have actually dropped him off in the wild.
AJDNNW's rival and a Pokemon-stealing jerk. In the remakes, he's revealed to be Giovanni's son. Like his father, Silver causes great trouble for AJ and the Mob.
Aerith and Bob: The mob was furious when they didn't get to give him a silly name like AJDNNW.
Badass: He gets a little harder to beat with every encounter and understands the weaknesses of the mob.
Break the Haughty: Getting plowed over by Lance has finally taken him down a peg or two.
Hypocrite: He chastised AJ for being a thief after he threw a Lure Ball at his Gastly.
Irrational Hatred: He blames AJ for not being able to find a legendary Pokemon and battles him to vent his anger.
Jerkass: Treats his rival like crap and his own Pokémon even worse.
Kick Them While They Are Down: Like his predecessor Blue, he knocks out his rival before he reaches his goal (Blue knocks him down while Red tries to become Champion, while Silver knocks him down before he reaches the League).
Knight of Cerebus: He's far more threatening than Blue, and controls a party tailor-made for destroying the mob.
My Name Is ???: Initially. When AJDNNW talked to the police officer looking for him, he told them the boy's name was Silver. note The Mob accidentally cancelled the naming progress, causing the game to result in his default name.
Overlord Jr.: The son of the previous Let's Play's Big Bad and no less imposing despite wanting nothing to do with Team Rocket.
The Rival: A bit one-sided on Silver's side. AJ doesn't really want anything to do with him.
What Happened to the Mouse?: The last time AJ saw Silver was in Victory Road. After their battle, Silver set off to discover why he cannot obtain the power he desires.
The Elite Four and Champion
Tropes applied to all:
Badass: Along with the Champion, they are the strongest trainers in Kanto and Johto.
Boss Bonanza: 5 elite trainers, one after another, no healing.
Luck-Based Mission: Certain steps have been made in advance, but it's really up to luck that the mob can choose the right attack, switch at the right time, and hope that their Pokemon do not hurt themselves in confusion.
The first member of the Elite Four. He is a master of Psychic-type Pokemon. He replaced Lorelei.
Butt Monkey: The mob beat him the first time, then 30+ times after.
Jobber: Although he beats on the party, and usually sets them up for a loss to Koga, Will has been about as big a wimp as Bruno was in gen 1.
Seems to be in the process of an upgrade now that he regularly leads fights with Confuse Ray to take down Espeon.
3 years after the events of Twitch Plays Pokemon Red, the Fuschia City Gym Leader was promoted to the second member of the Elite Four. Just like before, Koga is a master of Poison-type Pokemon.
The Dreaded: He is most certainly NOT the pushover he was from 3 years ago. His new Pokemon have several moves that the team is weak to, and they also love to inflict status effects as well as boosting Speed and Evasion.
Spiritual Successor: To TTP Red's Agatha. Both have the best win/lose ratio among the Elite Four, no doubt due to both having a mid to late position in the lineup and being able to exploit the mob's weakness to ghost types.
Taking You with Me: With moves like Curse and Destiny Bond, her Gengar specializes in crippling AJ's team before his match with Lance.
Returning from Red, Lance is now the Champion of the Indigo Pokémon League. And Batman.
Badass: He rampages through Rockets like it's nothing, and has beaten Silver without breaking a sweat.
Badass Cape: When he was first seen from the back, his cape made the Mob think he was Batman.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: Probably not from AJ's perspective, but a Charizard on his team would make him hell against bugs like Red's Venomoth.
Disc One Final Boss: He's the Champion, but beating him will serve only to unlock the Kanto portion of the game, after which AJ can finally face Red.
Good Is Not Soft: Lance has had his Dragonite directly Hyper Beam a Rocket member because he refused to surrender.
The protagonist of Twitch Plays Pokémon Red. Three years after becoming Indigo League Champion, he now resides atop Mt. Silver. He is the final boss of the game and, under one popular interpretation, the hated nemesis of AJ.
A God Am I: One possible interpretation of his reason for ascending Mount Silver.
Anti-Villain: Renowned as the brave hero that stopped Team Rocket 3 years prior. However, because he sides with the Helix, he is inherently in opposition to AJ.
Some believe that, after his adventure, all Red wants is silence, only for someone else communing with the mob to come after him.
Curb-Stomp Battle: The first two encounters with him involved Zapdos obliterating the entire team.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: He leads his team with his level 81 Zapdos, making sure that even if AJ would take it down, it would greatly injure his team so that rest of Red's team can finish them off. On top of that, he knows that Zapdos is the Kryptonite Factor to Godslayer Lazorgator, who doesn't like getting struck by lightning at all...
Dragon-in-Chief: While the Helix is the Big Bad from AJ's perspective, Red and the remaining five mons are the greater physical threat overall.
Hero Antagonist: Can be viewed as this, depending on how you see it. Particularly once it was revealed that his victory would prevent the Mob from advancing beyond Johto on to Hoenn.
Hero Killer: His Archangel of Justice made very short work of Lazorgator and Brian.
Mirror Self: Can be seen as this for AJ. Both have a hodgepodge of Pokémon that ultimately grow into a Band of Brothers, and both have been through hell and high water to reach their endgame. Like AJ, he wants to be rid of the Mob's stranglehold, and both resort to murder to solve their problem: Red thinks killing AJ will free him of the voices, while AJ thinks killing Red's Pokémon will free him of his.
Morally Ambiguous Counterpart: To AJ. His favored two Pokemon were Helix, his symbol, and Bird Jesus, his loyal companion, compared to AJ's Lazorgator as his symbol and Brian as Lazor's loyal companion. Both have been tortured by their adventures, and both have been brought up to murder their sworn enemy.
Load-Bearing Boss: Defeating Lord Helix the first time caused a 7 day countdown. If AJ can't win, the world is doomed and Emerald will not happen.
Nightmare Sequence: Lives through several if you believe the interpretation that the alternate games played between the main generations are Red's dreams. A Pokemon styled texture mod of Super Mario Land, where the mob repeatedly drives Red to fall down pits is seen as some sort of Ledge-induced PTSD. As for Link's Awakening...
Doubly troubling if you believe that the mob having control during these sequences means Red's not fully escaped their influence.
Olympus Mons: In Pokémon canon, Zapdos is this. In TPP's canon, Lord Helix and Bird Jesus are as well.
Timed Boss: The Mob has a week to defeat Red following the defeat of Lord Helix, or else Pokemon Emerald will never happen. And to make matters worse, Democracy has been disabled, although there are rumors of a Cheat Code that can re-enable it.
Took a Level in Badass: Red clearly hasn't been slacking off these past 3 years. The levels of his entire team are now in the 70s.
Tragic Villain: One could imagine that the voices have finally gotten to him.
True Final Boss: Like in the games, Red is the unexpected final challenge after becoming Pokémon Champion.
The Big Guy: Metal Gear: Able to tank explosions and no-selling both poison and electric attacks, while Dishing Out Dirt and pain in great amounts
The Chick: Breakfast Burrito, being The Heart of the team, but by no means a slouch in combat.
The Sixth Ranger: Raticate, filling the sixth spot during the Elite Four, but lacked a useful reason to stay on the team and was eventually Put on a Bus when they challenged Red.
Kill the God: Their goal is to defeat the champions of the Helix Fossil, and the god itself.
Power Trio: The story focused more on LazorGator, Brian, and Espeon after getting Brian from the Daycare. The other three slots rotated for a while until KT became a regular at Dragon's Den and Solid Snake/Metal Gear joined the fray at Victory Road making a Five-Man Band (see above). A the Raticate also signed on at Victory Road and stayed throughout Kanto, but was only just beginning to develop as a character before being deposited with no one being vocal about rescuing him.
Breakfast Burrito to AA-j the Zapdos. Both had to atone for something in order to be accepted: AA-j was blamed for the massive carnage of Bloody Sunday, Burrito was called the scion of Flareon, the False Prophet. To redeem himself, AA-j solemnly swore that for every fallen ally, he would destroy a hundred enemies, and thus became Archangel Of Justice, The WrathOf Helix. Burrito took a more subtle path - while no slouch in combat, he is a peaceful soul who embodies the virtues of love and friendship.
Katie to AATTVVV. A Dragon stands opposed to a Dragon Slayer who humiliated one of her kind - perhaps even a member of her family.
AJ's first and strongest Pokémon. As a Totodile it was dubbed "Lazor Gator" for its frequent use of Leer, whose Gen II animation resembled Eye Beams. AJ's starter was a frequent battler and thus quickly leveled up, but the Mob grew restless as the croc turned into an experience sponge while the rest of the team remained weaker. Frustrated by his overachieving, and remembering how the loss of Red's starter galvanized the previous team, the Mob turned against Lazor (now a Feraligatr) and tried to kill him by deliberately releasing him through the PC.Lazor Gator narrowly survived, but Prince Omelette the Togepiwas caught in the crossfire. This, coupled with the previous death of his mentor Admiral Sentret, turned Feraligatr wrathful against the Mob, and the Helix gods they worshipped. In vengeance he swore to climb to the top of Mt.Silver and kill the pantheon there, so no more 'Mons would be lost by the so-called will of the gods.
The Ace: LazorGator has always been the highest-leveled Pokemon on AJ's team by a considerable margin. Needless to say, most of AJ's major victories are heavily reliant on this Pokemon.
Broken Ace: According to fan lore, Togepi's release and the conflicting voices within AJ telling him to "kill/release the Gator" have started taking their toll on him. Coupled with the release of the Admiral he looked up to when he was a Totodile, this may be part of his motivation to take down the Gods of the Pokemon Red stream.
Poison, which is the reason why Koga especially is so deadly.
Destiny Bond by Karen's Gengar doomed several runs against the Elite Four, being a move that his sheer bulk couldn't merely tank through like any other attack.
All of the Other Reindeer: Inflicted by the Mob, much like Flareon before it. The difference is that Feraligatr is hated because it's seen as too powerful and is acting as an experience sponge, meaning the other party members Can't Catch Up. This eventually diminished as the rest of the party caught up, although Feraligatr still remained the highest leveled member.
An Ice Person: He knows the move Icy Wind, which has come in very handy against Flying types.
Apple of Discord: His overleveling makes him very contentious. Arguments abound as to whether he should be released, stored in daycare, or kept. Said arguments have wasted entire days of game time.
Badass: With his final victory over most of Red's team (including Bird Jesus and Lord Helix), he's undoubtedly the strongest Pokemon in the entire game.
Abby was Red's starter, but became Overshadowed by Awesome soon into the stream and was largely underpowered. She was then unceremoniously released while the mob was trying to release Flareon, giving her the status of Decoy Protagonist. Meanwhile, Lazorgator started off and continued to be the strongest member of AJ's party, and lost his allies while the mob tried to release him, solidifying his place as The Hero.
Bird Jesus was an overleveled Crutch Character who swept most of the early part of the game sans a brief Weaksauce Weakness moment at Pokemon Tower, and was hailed as not just a hero, but a savior. Lazor, on the flipside, has largely been derided for making his play through too easy, to the point where streamers have actively tried to get him released to spice the game up and give the rest of the party some screen time.
Cool Sword: Artwork sometimes depicts him with one, because he knows the move Cut. Most depict it as taking up the late Admiral's sword, who was the party's main Cut-user before being released, with Lazor learning it soon after.
Crutch Character: He's eaten all the experience due to being the mostly heavily relied on, resulting in Lazorgator being overleveled while most of the others are barely in their teens.
The Determinator: Will fight to his last HP if it means victory. His solo run against Lance's team deserves special mention. Paralyzed and bombarded with Hyper Beams and Outrages, he takes one final Hyper Beam from Aerodactyl...and barely survives with only 6 HP remaining, using the last ounce of his strength to defeat Aerodactyl and Lance with Icy Wind.
Similarly, the final showdown between him and Bird Jesus sees him pummeled by Bird Jesus's Sky Attack and knocked into the red at 57 HP. The next move would determine the victor, one way or another—and the Godslayer takes the win.
Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He killed Suicune, which led to a very hilarious freakout in the chat. Half the mob was thrilled and branded him Godslayer, while the other half attempted to revive the "Dock the Croc" campaign. So far more people are impressed than outraged, so he's probably not going to break his arm anytime soon.
Aerodactyl brings him to the brink of death with a Hyper Beam, but he survives and delivers the finishing blow with Icy Wind.
And now he's beaten Lord Helix himself, though Air Jordan took the weakened Gator down.
Happens again in the final run—the Godslayer personally takes on Lord Helix and Bird Jesus all on his own, AND WINS.
Eye Beams: His Leer, which in Gen II looks like beams coming out of Totodile's eyes (well, one eye and his mouth) resulting in the nickname of "Lazorgator". Leer was eventually forgotten, and Scary Face, which has the same beam animation but with more special effects, was learned, only to eventually be replaced by Surf.
Beam Spam: When he would use Leer or Scary Face multiple times in a row.
Hero with Bad Publicity: A large portion of the viewer base hates Lazorgator for being a Spotlight-Stealing Squad and certified Ace like a lot of run through's starters become, compared to the previous stream where a Crutch Character ended up becoming the most iconic member of the party. It's gotten so bad that some players have actively tried to release him.
Now may well no longer be the case; when the Gator was accidentally boxed after AJ reached Indigo Plateau, the Mob voted overwhelmingly to save him.
He Who Fights Monsters: From the most cynical perspective. Only with the destruction of the gods can he know peace.
Invincible Hero: With his immense strength, Lazorgator has managed to turn hopeless battles into victory, always being the last one standing when it counts. He has a lost a few times, but all loses were a case of Worf Had the Flu.
It's Up to You: When all others fail, Lazorgator prevails. This situation comes up often.
Kill the God: In a lot of fanart, his ultimate goal is to destroy Lord Helix and his chosen, the Gods of old who have forsaken his trainer and his team. He has already slain Suicune and the Old Amber (Lance's Aerodactyl) to prepare himself for this daunting task. One of his nicknames is not "Godslayer" for nothing. Then he slays Lord Helix himself.
Knight in Sour Armor: A bitter and tortured soul who wages war against the Gods, and all for the sake of a better tomorrow for his friends.
Large And In Charge: He's the strongest and one of the biggest of AJ's Pokémon, and is popularly considered the leader.
Legacy Character: After displaying a tendency to Leer repeatedly, some members of the chat proclaimed him the successor to "King Leer" (AKA Dux), the Farfetch'd from Red Version with a similar habit.
Magnetic Hero: Lazorgator is popularly depicted as the one who draws new recruits to his cause.
One-Man Army: He blows through trainers and gyms like a house of straw.
Most evident in the final battle. Once Zapdos and Lapras (who can kill him in one hit and can easily weather his attacks, respectively) are taken out by the sacrifices of his teammates, the Godslayer goes on to obliterate the remaining four members of Red's team (including Bird Jesus and Lord Helix himself) all on his lonesome.
Take Up My Sword: Cut, the move and HM needed to progress, was originally taught to VV, The Admiral. When the Admiral was released, the mob was without a Cut-user. Lazorgator was promptly taught Cut, picking up The Admiral's sword. somethingthe fandomhas noticed.◊
Tortured Monster: Became so because of his comrades' deaths. As such, Lord Helix fears the Croc will become a terrible beast to unleash its fury upon the world, and so has orchestrated his own death in hopes that it will satisfy the Gator's wrath.
Undying Loyalty: Whilst Bird Jesus was eternally loyal to his trainer Red, Lazorgator is eternally loyal to his teammates and will fight to the last to protect them.
Unstoppable Rage: He knew the move Rage, but it was later replaced with Icy Wind out of necessity. This can be interpreted as Lazor having tempered his own rage somewhat.
AJ's first caught Pokémon. A normal pidgey hailed as the Second Coming of Bird Jersus in spite of his own wishes. Determined to become his own identity and break free from the shadow of his predecessor.
Be Yourself: A lot of fanart depicted his evolution to Pidgeot as this; originally filled with doubt for being in the shadow of Bird Jesus, but decides that he's fine as being just another Pidgeot.
Combat Pragmatist: He uses Sand Attack often, reducing the opponent's accuracy to the point where they can't land a hit. This tactic earned it one of its nicknames, "Private Sand-Thrower".
Force And Finesse: With the evasive Fly, gimmicky Mirror Move, and instantaneous Quick Attack, Brian is the Finesse to LazorGator's Force.
Genre Savvy: Against Lt. Surge's Double Team spamming Electrode, he Mirror Move-d its Swift attacks back at it.
I Just Want to Be Normal: Most fan depictions of Brian depict him as struggling to emerge from the shadow cast by Bird Jesus, with his dream being to become his own person rather than act as a messiah for the group.
The Lancer: To Lazorgator - when Gator needs aid, Brian is always there.
Fan-Preferred Couple: Some of the mob have taken to pairing Brian and Katie together (see last panel◊), which the above seems to re-affirm. It helps that once Katie evolves, they'll be the only two flying types on the core team.
An Espeon who was originally obtained from Bill as an Eevee. Like Brian he too had to overcome the prejudice of the Mob due to hatred of Red's Flareon from the previous run, as well as being a gift from Bill, the creator ofthe PC. Eventually he became more liked and accepted by the community, and took on the role of The Heart of the team.
Ambiguously Bi: He sometimes attempts to seduce males with Attract, although it will always fail. He also resisted a Lovely Kiss from Will's Jynx. Breakfast Burrito might be Ambiguously Gay, or maybe she just wasn't his type.
Dude Looks Like a Lady: As an Espeon, Burrito is naturally very dainty looking. His gender often causes some initial confusion among fans.
Embarrassing Nickname: "Burrito" came from a random suggestion in the Twitch chat, and has nothing to do with anything. He later became "Breakfast Burrito" when he evolved because of Espeon's association with the Sun.
Kill the God: He is learning from Lazorgator to be a Godslayer too, and he's becoming exceedingly good at it. Case in point: during the battle with Dome Cultist Brock, it took down not a third-rate Suicune, but a bona fide Kabutops, avatar of the God of Order and rival of Lord Helix!
Light 'em Up: Burrito was taught Flash to get through dark caves, replacing Sand Attack. He was immediately hailed as "Lightbringer".
Light Is Good: His evolution was triggered by sunlight and friendship, and happened during Operation Love, so this is how he's being interpreted.
Lightning Bruiser: Is fast and has two nasty moves, the flinch-inducing Bite and the STAB-powered Psychic, letting him sweep both Will and Bruno's teams with ease.
Mon Bites Mon: Occurs frequently since Burrito's only offensive move for a long time was Bite.
Bite was accidentally replaced by Morning Sun while in Anarchy Mode after beating Misty.
No Sell: When he was an Eevee and thus Normal-type, Silver's Haunter couldn't hurt it.
The Pornomancer: He was accidentally taught Attract in anarchy mode. Even though it took the planned spot for Morning Sun, and is not as useful, the mob thinks it's too appropriate (considering his associations with love) to remove.
It's also quite funny considering his trainer's noted struggles with women...
And now that he's learned Flash, he has combined his associations with light and his associations with... er... something else... into one move.
Flareon evolved because the Fire Stone was forced upon him, whereas Burrito willingly evolved himself, powered by the bond with his Trainer.
Flareon's presence caused the Mob to become furiously aggressive and hateful, whereas Burrito has actually made them more peaceful and compassionate, sending AJ and his team loving messages of support, something that has never happened before.
Flareon's evolution shamed the entire Eevee line (causing many to view the Eeveelutions as evil) and embittered the Mob; Burrito's evolution in to Espeon restored honor to the Eevee line and made the Mob much more understanding and kind as a whole.
Flareon was often considered the scion of the Dome Fossil. Burrito destroyed the avatar of the Dome with his own mind.
Arch-Enemy: Venomoths... more specifically, one Venomoth - Red's famous AATTVVV, The Dragon Slayer. One of her main reasons for joining the group is the hope that she can meet AATTVVV in battle and slay him, restoring honor to her kind. She finally managed to slay the Dragon Slayer when the team fought Red, but decided to stick around to help her friends with the rest of their mission.
Super Speed: Averted - could potentially have known the move Extremespeed instead of Leer at the start, but the mob didn't answer all of the Dragon Master's questions correctly so they just got a regular Dratini instead.
You Killed My Father: Seeks revenge against ATV for his legendary humiliation of Lance's Dragonite from Gen 1, implied to be an older relative of hers or her father. She got a bit of revenge during the battles against Koga, who owns a Venomoth that frequently spars with her. She eventually managed to defeat ATV.
A Steelix caught in Victory Road as an Onix. In his first form he was often quickly defeated in battle, but then was given a Rare Candy given in a Democracy period during the Elite Four, allowing him to evolve. Steelix subsequently gained a ton of resistances and immunities, letting him take the role of team tank. He is the only member of AJ's team to not have an It's Personal motivation for confronting Red, leading to interpretation that he just likes to battle or is merely along for the ride.
Badass: How badass is he, exactly? The kind of badass who squares off against a significantly stronger Archangel Zapdos, effortlessly resists his infamous GIGA DRILL PECK over and over again (nanomachines, son!) and methodically whittles the terrifying entity's health down, and when his target is healed by the Helix' power, just does it all over again. And again, until at last his foe bit the dust.
The Big Guy: The current Strength man on the team, and easily the largest member.
Eleventh Hour Ranger: He is the last Pokémon to join AJ's party (shortly before the Elite Four), and actually becomes useful even later (while trying to defeat the Elite Four). But once he does, he really pulls his weight - after Lazorgator, he was probably the most crucial character of the run, combat-wise. Notably, he was the one and only member of AJ's team able to stop Red's unstoppable ArchangelOf JusticeZapdos.
Subverted in that she actually didn't learn any new moves. She still only had Tackle, String Shot and Harden. With a 2/3 chance to not do any damage and a 1/3 chance to do little damage, she was still severely outclassed by AJ's entire team.
Put on a Bus: Oxxy is currently chilling at the daycare. She was deposited after receiving the Mineral Badge. Our bill must be huge.
ABBBDDDDDD the Raticate ("Abed", "Abdullah", "Abdicate")
A Raticate caught in the Burned Tower.
Recurring Element: This is the third time in Twitch Plays Pokemon where a Pokemon from the Rattata line has been added to the party, the former two being Jay Leno and DigRat from Twitch Plays Pokemon Red.
Hatched from the Mystery Egg given to A.J by the Daycare Couple. It could have been any one out of the seven non-Togepi baby Pokemon in the game, and was very likely to be Shiny.note In the international versions, Odd Egg has 7 in 50 (or roughly 1 in 7) chance to be a Shiny; in the Japanese it is a whopping 1 in 2. A normal wild Pokémon has 1 in 8192; in case of breeding it is possible to raise it to 1 in 64 under specific conditions.
Gender-Blender Name: Both Duke Smoochum and Dylan are male names on an exclusively female Pokémon.
Fridge Brilliance / Accidentally Accurate (?): Nicki Minaj, the basis of one of the Smoochum's potential nicknames, has a male persona named "Roman". "Duke Smoochum" and "Dylan" could simply be male personae of Smoochi Minaj.
Megaton Punch: Was taught DynamicPunch, though it's so underleveled it doesn't get to show it off.
The Mob never fulfilled this promise; but others have after the Streamer released the final save file. As it turns out, Mania doesn't want Shuck back because it likes us too much.
Stone Wall: Of the turtling variety; he has tanked blows from Pokemon a dozen levels higher. Multiple times. Fitting, as his defense stats are actually the highest of ANY Pokemon.
This is the main reason this level 25 is still in the party. The Mob believes that, since traded Pokemon gain twice the experience, Shuckle can quickly be grinded into a tanky Pokemon that can wear down opponents.
A the Raticate ("Eh", "Mountie", "A Raticate", "Ace")
Can't Catch Up: Already underleveled but denied the Exp. Share which is always on another Pokemon, Ace only gets 50% of the experience for any opponent he manages to struggle through. Tied in with Morton's Fork below.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: His stint against Slowbro during the final Elite Four run showed that while he is far from strong, he can still dish out considerable damage if he has to.
He's also managed to hold his own in battles against regular trainers during the Unit's Kanto Tour.
The Generic Guy: With 2 other Raticate waiting in the PC, and TPP already having a history with Raticate, A doesn't bring anything new to the table. In fact, it's Reconstructed in that his sheer genericness could be considered his struggle.
One of the nicknames simply calls him "A Raticate".
He was also the first of many Pokemon (plus two player characters) to share his name.
So Last Season: Level-wise, this guy is as strong as Red's Venomoth ATV, which managed to kill a dragon. Still, he gets tossed around more than often.
Shoo Out the Clowns: Gets deposited after the first couple attempts against Red and is not present during the final confrontation.
Yank the Rat's Chain: Is finally given the Exp. Share before the eighth gym and it looks like he might get a chance to catch up to the rest of the party. Not even a day later, that gets replaced with a Metal Coat and Ace gets unceremoniously dumped in the PC.
Various Pokémon that AJ caught and haven't had much effect on the game or the players since.
A second Hoothoot caught immediately after the first. Sent to Bill's PC the instant it was caught.
A Zubat caught in Burned Tower and immediately sent to the PC. Currently in the Daycare
A Tentacool which was captured on AJ's way to Victory Road.
A Tentacool which was also caught on AJ's way to Victory Road, what was left without a nickname
AA the Noctowl
A Noctowl caught on Route 27.
I the Raticate
A Raticate caught on Route 27.
A Graveler caught in Victory Road.
AAAAAAAAA the Ponyta
A Ponyta caught in Route 27
A Doduo caught in Route 27
I the Doduo
A Doduo caught in Route 27
A Golbat caught in Victory Road.
S -c the Golbat "Sergeant C"
A female Golbat caught with a Pokeball at full health in Victory Road.
Released Team Members
VV "The Admiral"
VV the Sentret, formerly ADiiiiihhh ("The Admiral", "Adidas", "Addy", "Vendetta", "Admiral Vivi")
AJ's second caught Pokémon. Sentrets had been a surprisingly tough enemy for AJ's team despite being mere Com Mons, as under the Admiral's leader they were honed to be a disciplined army. Eventually, though, he called a truce with the team and joined their ranks, being the Cut user and mentor to AJ's young Totodile. Sadly his stay with the team was short, as he became the Crystal run's first victim of the PC.
Artistic License - Military: Admiral is a navy rank (coming from the Arabic word amir-al-baHr أمير البحر, "commander of the sea"), but this admiral led an army.
Cynicism Catalyst: Prince Omelette's release is what set AJ and his team on the path of vengeance.
David Versus Goliath: Pulls off climactic victories and near-victories despite his level disadvantage. In a literal sense, Togepi is 30cm tall, and often matched against Mons five or more times his size.
The Heart: Despite not being used in battle much, he was one of the most beloved members of the party. His release is considered the moment where Lazorgator swore vengeance against the gods for trying to kill him.
Heroic Sacrifice: One interpretation of his death was that he gave up his own life in exchange for Lazor Gator's survival.
Kill the Cutie: Only a baby, and one of the most beloved on the team, yet was released during the schism over Lazor Gator.
Mighty Glacier: Knows Charm, which lowers the opponent's Attack by half with each use. Thanks to this he has endured hits that would have otherwise knocked him out in short order, and buying him enough time to let loose Metronome-induced devastating attacks.
Mundane Afterlife: The Google Maps Pokemon Challenge on April Fool's Day 2014 depicted a Togepi arriving at the gates of Walt Disney World. Since the game also referenced Bird Jesus, some have suggested that this is the Prince being given a nice place to go after his release.
Murder by Mistake: Released accidentally in the mob's attempt to take out Lazor Gator.
Other great early examples of Metronomes awesomeness include landing a freezing Ice Beam right after a Leech Seed (allowing it to suck the life from/outlast a stonewalling, and by then struggling, Gastly) and landing a 5 hit Fury Attack that took away half the opponents health (the other half being eaten up by the aforementioned Hyper Beam.) Togepi makes for a great Scrambled Omelette!
Prince Omelette pulled it off yet again against Morty's Haunter, using SacredFire of all things. It may have fainted moments later, but it didn't go down without unleashing Ho-oh's signature move and burning Haunter.
invokedName's the Same: Since "Wooper" is very similar to the Burger King sandwich the "Whopper", some people have started calling it "Burger King" or "BK", which is the name of of the Venonat caught in the Safari Zone during Twitch Plays Pokemon Red.
The Coup: Calls completely halt Democracy's movement for a good minute until the lag picks up. Anarchists will gleefully bring up this fact as an excuse to spam anarchy and take over, regardless of the most convenient input method at the time.
Break Up Make Up Scenario: AJ accidentally deleting Joey's phone number is interpreted by some to be them having a falling out, while their subsequent rematch is seen as reconciling.
The Bus Came Back: Though his calls have been a thing throughout the whole story, his few major appearances in person were the initial battle with him, the move to regain his number after accidentally deleting it, and a much later rematch. Finally, AJ visited him after beating Red.
He (or another youngster with the same name as him) also made an appearance during Twitch Plays Pokemon FireRed, this time with a team of Poochyena.
Call On Me: When AJ is lost or bumbling about, the mob always suggests calling him for advice or directions.
Accidental Hero: Todd called once while AJ was maniacally pressing buttons on the PC (the mob screaming out in horror all the while), causing AJ to come to his senses and skedaddle without any loss of life.
An aspiring juggler who AJ misguidedly gives his phone number. His balls dropped after AJ defeated him.
Abhorrent Admirer: He's quite the fan of AJ and his adventures. While his character class isn't necessarily bad-looking,◊ the Mob tends to be annoyed by his frequent calls. He also has a bizarre habit of apparently following AJ everywhere he goes, just a few steps behind him.
Almighty Janitor: AJ was actually defeated by Irwin during their first encounter.
The Violet City Gym Leader, specializing in Flying-type Pokemon.
Ancient Tradition: It is widely believed that he and possibly the other denizens of Violet City, including the Sages of Sprout Tower, are a part of a secret order that follows the legends of the Helix and the Dome.
"GUYS WE NEED TO MILK WHITNEY"
The Goldenrod City Gym Leader. Since the beginning of Twitch Plays Pokemon Crystal, a portion of the mob gained an odd obsession with 'milking' her, similar to their obsession with Misty in the first game.
The Dreaded: Averted. Despite being That One Boss for normal players, after beating AJ once, on the second try she went down quite quickly without much effort on the mobs part.
The Ecruteak City Gym Leader. Both he and his gym represent some of the mob's biggest weaknesses.
The Dreaded: Since the beginning of TTP Crystal, people have brought up how the precise steps needed to navigate the gym would be nigh impossible without Democracy, not to mention the mobs traditional weakness to ghost types.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: Unlike with Whitney, in this case the mob was perfectly right. Even with Democracy, the gym is challenging to navigate. At one point resulting in the mob attempting elaborate strings of commands to try and beat the maze with one vote. It went about as well as you'd expect◊... The problem was that Democracy would input new commands before the old string was finished, locking AJ in the corner. Even after they managed to get through the maze, Morty's Gengar took out LazorGator due to the mobs inability to choose an attack that can hurt it consistently, and then took so long taking apart the rest of the team, that Democracy came and went, forcing the mob to wait another hour before attempting the gym again.
Dream Stealer: His Gengar's signature move. And indeed it stole both Lazorgator and TPP's hopes and dreams. Several times.
Tactical Suicide Boss: Switching Pokémon constantly caused several of Morty's monsters to KO themselves from Curse abuse.
"GUYS WE NEED TO BEAT MISTY"
The Cerulean City Gym Leader returns in Gen 2, as does the Mob's obsession with beating her. Is not fond of having her dates interrupted.
Brick Joke: In the previous run, she was beaten early on in the game and the mob gained an obsession with beating her again throughout the lategame. One playthrough later and the mob finally gets to beat Misty.
The former Champion of the Pokemon League whose glory was snatched away almost as quickly as it came when Red defeated him and became the new Champion. 3 years later, he is the Gym Leader of Viridian City, now that Giovanni has left.
Badass: As a former Champion, this is to be expected.
Why Did It Have to Be Sentrets: 70 levels later the Mob still has a fear of these things. They sent their level 72 Lazor Gator out against one and immediately ran in fear.
The Legendary Doge
A trio of Legendary Pokemon heralded as gods in Ecruteak City, and awakened by AJ when he fell into the basement of the Burned Tower. This, naturally, makes them a target of interest in terms of either capturing or killing them.
The Legendary Doge of Water, representing the North Wind. Upon his awakening, he takes an interest in AJ and his Pokemon. After being encountered several times, and after AJ has collected all 8 badges, Suicune appeared with his brethren at the Tin Tower. While the other two flee, Suicune deemed AJ a worthy opponent, and challenged him to battle.
Ambiguous Situation: Fleeing from Suicune's battle is impossible, so AJ's only option was to either capture it, or kill it. One interpretation could be that it was giving AJ one last chance to turn away from his quest for vengeance.
Killed Off for Real: Meets his end at the hands of Lazorgator, who trapped him in a Whirlpool prison before executing him with Surf.
The Legendary Doges of Lightning and Fire. AJ has yet to encounter them, but he will soon find that capturing or killing them will not be an easy task, as they flee on sight. When they are prevented from fleeing, their Roars are loud enough to strike fear into the hearts of even the strongest-willed Pokemon, forcing them to retreat.
Cowardly Boss: They will run away as soon as they are encountered.
Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: AJ never encountered them again while the Mob was in his head, suggesting the remaining two Doge knew it was better to run and stay alive than face off against this team on a god-slaying quest.
The Unfought: Ultimately, Lugia remains beneath AJ's notice due to his focus on defeating Red.
High atop Tin Tower lies Ho-Oh, the guardian of the skies. It is said it will only appear to a trainer who is truly worthy, after AJ has defeated the Elite Four. Unfortunately, AJ failed to meet certain conditions, and was judged as unworthy.
Killed Off for Real: One interpretation is that the Doge are linked to his life force, and Suicune's death killed him as well.
Only the Pure of Heart: One of the requirements was for AJ to capture all three Legendary Doge. Unfortunately, AJ killed Suicune out of dark desires, automatically failing him.
Suspicious Video Game Generosity: A guy who can teleport you back to your house in case you don't feel like challenging the Elite Four? That might be helpful IF this weren't TPP.
Kris ("The Girl Who Never Was")
After beating the Elite Four, the Mob accidentally chose to start a new game. A new female character was created for a short time before the game was reset to its previous save state, thus creating the legend of 'The Girl Who Never Was'.
Alternate Universe: One theory is that an alternate universe now exists where Kris was chosen by the voices, not AJ.
invokedAuthor's Saving Throw: The Admin intervened to cancel the game's reset, either erasing her existence or saving her from becoming another victim from the Mob.
Continuity Reboot: Had the Streamer not intervened before we saved or the bot re-wrote the save state.
Foreshadowing: A new girl protagonist is created then suddenly wiped out of existence. Seems like an early warning of what would occur seven times at the very beginning of Twitch Plays Pokemon Emerald.
Hero of Another Story: We'll likely never know what happened to her or what her journey would have been like.
Ret Gone: If one takes the interpretation that the reset created her and its subsequent reset erased her, hence her nickname "The Girl Who Never Was".
