YMMV: We Are All Pokémon Trainers
  • God-Mode Sue: Einroth is an in-universe parody of such characters.
  • Growing the Beard: 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.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Has its own page.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • 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.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • 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 Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
    • Zero remarks here about Dittos having twins. Later, Straw meets Eskay's Ditto, Doopliss, who looks exactly like Straw in human form, only with a goatee.
  • Ho Yay:
    • 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 because he liked Lyuri more than him, which sounds awkward even in context.
  • Idiosyncratic Ship Naming: 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
  • Idiot Plot: Just try to make sense of Pies' plot.
  • Les Yay:
    • When Mira the Mienfoo first meets DS and her team, and witnesses Artemis the Liepard fight off a Beartic, Artemis has Bishie Sparkle 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 Precocious Crush (It's complicated...) on Lily the Lilligant almost since she evolved into a Kirlia, which was at some point reciprocated.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships:
    • 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 Ho Yay with Sam and Joseph...
    • Crewe has an incredibly good name for Portmanteau Ship Names; Crab, Craw, Crowe, Cruke, Crouch, Creddler, Mewe, Craisy, Cryche, Viewe, Crewebert, Creskay, Skewe, Criane, Crent...
  • Mary Sue:
    • 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.
  • Memetic Badass:
    • 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 Chuck Norris now.
  • Memetic Molester: Cynthia's Milotic. Very coyly referencing DS.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • 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 (Jacob X Argentum) for life!
    • luke_how_wonderful.oggExplanation 
  • Memetic Sex God: Herbert/Lucius, his sort of dark and brooding nature may have helped.
    • Jason Maxwell, big time. A possible factor might be his Nice Guy demeanor as well as being slightly goofy, which make him out to be The Charmer.
    • Duke, for a variety of 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.
  • Moe:
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • 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.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Valkon's stupidity to Hax.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Has its own page.
  • No Yay: Luke and DS' reactions to being shipped with their respective archenemies Proton and Cyrus.
  • One-Scene Wonder:
    • Bonnie the Weavile showed up for a very short time.
    • Tagg's Lanturn made one appearance during the Unova arc.
  • Paranoia Fuel:
    • 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 Nightmare Fuel
    • Nightmare and Spirit, a pair of Delta Stantler with Illusion. They're able to hide themselves from even trained Aurics and Psychics.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: Quite a few were thought up during the shipping discussion. Some examples:
    • Kenny — Kensei♥Sunny
    • Jamer — Jane♥Gamer
    • Mezzery — Mezzopiano♥Every
    • Vinoa (or Rinoa) — Vinollo♥Roa
    • Crab — Crewe♥Jab
    • Treelip — Treeo♥Tulip
    • Psychay — Eskay♥Psyche
    • MarceLily Marceline (Psyche's Gardevoir) ♥ Lily (Trip's Lilligant)
  • Real Women Never Wear Dresses: Eliza is by far the most feminine member of Jane's Unova team.
  • Squick: A lot of Jane's reactions to Gamer.
  • Tear Jerker: Has its own page.
  • The Woobie: Has its own page.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion:
    • Daisy didn't realize that Josie the Medicham was male. To be fair, 'Josie' is a 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.
