Pokemon Squad is a fanfic series created by Raquaza Master ("RM"), and his friend, Sailor Pikachu (known as MickeyMouse here, though she quit at the end of 2010) based on the Pokémon anime. It focuses on the not-so-typical lives of RM and his friends living in his mansion. Living there are otaku RM's Friend, classic Nickelodeon junkie Sailor Pikachu, and all the main humans in Pokemon. Also there are Henry and June of KaBlam!!, and The Penguins of Madagascar. Later arrivals are Dawn from KaBlam!!, RM's Other Friend, RM's Friend's Twin, among others. They live next door to the Yaoi House, which includes Dora the Explorer, Barney, Baloney, Harley, Elmo, Roger Klotz and the home's main couple, Rudy and Snap. Other characters such as Doug Funnie, the Recess gang, Barbie, The Annoying Orange, and Loopy and Larry, are in it too.All the characters have their Pokemon, but Pikachu and RM's Mudkip, Sqirt, are evil and want to rule over earth.Most of the non-original characters have been Flanderized, but to a funny extent.Now on 77 episodes and several shorts located here.
Brock could also classify, seeing as it's his "juice" that gets her drunk. Yet, we never see him drinking it, so probably not.
It was only confirmed to be his "juice" the first time. Also, June was an alcoholic long before episode 4. According to the real RM and Sailor Pikachu, there are plans for a scene at Alcoholics Anonymous
Apparently, Alcoholics Anonymous banned June for life when she attacked the leader of the group for telling the group members to try to go a week without drinking.
Aloof Big Brother: Inverted with RM's Friend's Twin. RM's Friend fits the description of the trope, but he's the younger sibling.
An Ice Person: RM's Abomasnow. Also Sqirt when using an Ice type attack.
And Red's Lapras.
Artifact Title: It really was only in the pilot (which the real RM and Sailor Pikachu both like to pretend didn't exist) that all of the main characters except for the Author Avatars were Pokemon and only the background characters were from other series. Very next episode? We get Henry and June and the Penguins as main characters, while dropping a surprising number of the non-Pokemon background characters. The episode after that, most of the Yaoi House cast is introduced, and a few episodes later they become really major as it's shown they live next door to the Mansion.
The real RM has recently stated, however, that due to Sailor Pikachu's prompting, he'll be trying to write out some of the non-Pokemon characters except the Yaoi House to make it more of a Pokemon series again.
Ascended Extra: Pretty much everyone in the Yaoi House, Doug Funnie, and some others.
TO THE EXTREME with the Yaoi House. They first appeared in episode 3 as the prison guards when RM took over the world. Then it's revealed that they live next door (though it's not revealed until episode 6, and it's only actually shown that Barney lives there). They quickly become important parts of the cast (in more ways than one), and even have several episodes centered around them. Additionally, Word of God says that after Pokemon Squad is finished, RM (the real one) plans to write a new series completely centered around the Yaoi House.
England. He starts with just a cameo appearance in a scene that had little to do with the plot of an episode, but then in a short he's revealed to have a past with June, which is demonstrated in several episodes.
Author Appeal: "Eliza Thornberry"'s OTP of Buzz Lightyear and Woody. The real RM ships Buzz and Woody, as does the real Sailor Pikachu.
Author Avatar: RM and Sailor Pikachu ARE REAL PEOPLE. They have different names, that's all.
Ditto for RM's Friend, RM's Other Friend, RM's Friend's Twin, and Flashbacks37 (though he ended up being written out). They don't write Pokemon Squad, though.
Bad-Guy Bar, Good Guy Bar: Elmo's Tavern could qualify as a strange combination of the two. Doug often develops his schemes to kill Barney there, and June spends long nights in bar fights, but as mentioned by Barney just about everyone in Unnamed Town who is a heavy drinker goes (except, ironically, Barney, as he's banned from it for life by Elmo himself).
Beach Episode: Appropriatly titled, "Pokemon Squad Goes to the Beach".
Camp Gay: James, Harley, and seemingly Barney, though some evidence implies that he's actually pansexual but just for children.
Camp Straight: RM. He acts ridiculously flamboyant at times, but he's in a relationship with May.
However, he does seem to have a thing for RM's Friend, who he calls "Onii-sama," and RM's Friend's Twin, who he calls "Nii-chan."
He also enjoys being genderbent a little too much and has asked his "Nii-chan" several times to marry him (and it's implied he's done this with RM's Friend even more times). No word yet on whether he's joking or not about this...
He likely isn't joking (at least about enjoying being genderbent), since he more or less says in the episode where Pokemon Squad is bought by Saban that he enjoys being genderbent so much he's willing to let Pokemon Squad stay the property of Saban.
Deserted Island: On two occasions. In one, all main characters get stranded on a Castaway Island. In the next, RM gets stranded on another Castaway Island while Ash and June get stranded on a nearby "Far Side" Island.
Although size-wise the deserted island Ash and June are on the second time is somewhere between "Far Side" Island and Castaway Island.
Dirty Old Man: Barney. He's two hundred million years old (if anyone remembers his birthday episode in 1992). Plus, Word of God says he cosplays as Rei's grandpa (from Sailor Moon) with George W. Bush, his best friend.
Dumb Blonde: Completely averted. RM is one of the smartest characters. Sailor Pikachu is also relatively smart, and RM's Other Friend is another very smart character.
In RM's case, it's averted so much it's scary... Such as his rounding π to 1120 digits...
Even Nerds Have Standards: Max is arguably on the second highest tier, and ditto for RM (arguably, anyway, since they both work in the lab together and invent stuff together). Next tier: RM's Friend, RM's Friend's Twin, and Sailor Pikachu, and arguably RM's Other Friend.
Fire, Ice, Lightning: Fire: Ash's Infernape, Red's Charizard, and RM's Rayquaza if it uses Flamethrower. Ice: Ash's Buizel is it uses Ice Punch, RM's Abomasnow and Red's Lapras. Lightning: Ash's Pikachu, Red's Pikachu, Sailor Pikachu's Raichu, Henry and June (Sailor Pikachu's Minun and Plusle, respectively), and RM's Pachirisu.
Not only have non-original characters been Flanderized, but there's a fair amount of in-series Flanderization, for both original and non-original characters. Ash just keeps getting stupider, June keeps getting crueler, Max keeps getting smarter, and Barney keeps getting more child molestation obsessed.
RM's dislike for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is HEAVILY Flanderized. He's become paranoid of a brony uprising to the point where he even has invented many things specifically for that occasion. He seems to think bronies are behind nearly everything, which is extremely odd for him as he's extremely smart.
Interspecies Romance: RM's Pachirisu has a crush on RM and is sometimes willing to outrageous extents to win RM. In fact, when RM became king Pachirisu volunteered for jail guard duty and chased Ash halfway to Egypt.
Also, whenever the Recess gang speak, it's usually T.J., Vince, or Spinelli. Gretchen, Gus, and Mikey don't have as many.
Rags to Royalty: Everyone in RM's Mansion in the episode "The RM Who Would Be King." Although, they weren't really in rags, seeing as they lived in a MANSION.
Real Life Writes the Plot: Sailor Pikachu was going to stay single in the series. Once the real Sailor Pikachu got a boyfriend, he was slated to appear in a future episode, but by Sailor Pikachu's request, he won't be appearing.
Sailor Pikachu is slated to leave the series soon so (in-universe) she can persue a solo career in music. In real life, the real Sailor Pikachu admitted on another site that due to depression and other things going on in her life, she needed to move on.
Cameron the Photographer appearing out of nowhere at the worst times.
"I just gotta sketch this!"
The creepy laughs of several characters.
Gary saying "Nyeh."
This actually could count as a Shout-Out to Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series, but most likely is a reference to Gary's dub voice being one of those voices that makes you think "Nyeh" due to being somewhat nasal.
RM being mistaken for a girl has turned into this, as has much of his camp behavior.
Fanboy and Chumchum being grotesquely killed. Being eaten (especially by June) seems to be the most common now.
Actually, so many it's insane, but somewhat Justified as this is a crossover fic.
"Hey, Brock!" Ash said, tapping Brock on the shoulder. Brock was reading a hentai manga.
"What, Ash? What?!" Brock yelled. "What could possibly be so important that you would distract me from reading my hentai manga just to tell me about it?!""I just had my first successful bowel movement in 2 years!"Brock hit Ash on the head with the manga."Ow..." Ash cried. "Brock, that was just a joke and a well timed Yugioh Abridged reference!"
During one of the scenes where the Recess gang are in school, Miss Grotke teaches them about the difference between flying and falling...with style. Finding the entire concept ridiculous, she says "Man, this lesson is a load of sh-" and then the bell rings.
It seems RM thinks of him as a Cute Mute, which is just one example of the huge amount of Ho Yay between them. Interestingly, much of the Ho Yay seems to be stemming from RM's Friend talking so rarely.
Sailor Pikachu and June are the standard Those Two Guys, as well as Ash and Henry.
There are SEVERAL Those Two Guys groups with RM. RM and Brock, RM and Max, RM and RM's Friend, RM and RM's Friend's Twin, RM and RM's Other Friend (who practically have an ongoing comedy routine involving her height), RM and Kowalski, need I go on?
Title Drop: Parodied when the Recess gang are in class. After the bell rings, Miss Grotke mentions, "Okay, it's time for...oh great, I'm going to end up doing a title drop to the show we're usually on, aren't I?"
Toilet Humor: Though not used that often, when it is used, it's HUGE.
