* HopeSpot: The mob tricks [[BiggerBad Bill]] into sealing himself (while still in [[SealedEvilInATeddyBear Clefairy]] form) inside [[HoistByHisOwnPetard his own vile system]], and immediately has A stroll out the door like a badass. Unfortunately, re-entering his house shows him standing in the middle of the room as if nothing had happened, having somehow [[OffscreenTeleportation escaped offscreen]]. A ''literal'' KarmaHoudini.

Following ''LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonEmerald'', the game, a remake of VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue, began on April 11, 2014, with the protagonist once again being a girl named [[OneLetterName A]]. Before the game started, the streamer ran the game's data through a randomizer, resulting in a Machop being the chosen starter Pokémon. ...A Machop that has the [[EpicFail Truant]] ability. With Pokemon in the wild such as punching birds and Surskit with Hyper Beam, this is sure to be a run to remember.

Come April 2016, in the lead up PBR 2.0's debut, several older run saves were played. [=FireRed=] was the first, almost 2 years after it's end. It's brief presence was soon followed by [[LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonEmerald Emerald]].

'''LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon''' (TPP) is a series of social experiments that started in February 2014 in which commands representing buttons on an original Game Boy Advance (up, down, left, right, A, B, L, R, and start) are entered into a chat on Twitch, and then translated into a game of Pokémon via an IRC bot. In short, thousands of people are fighting over a controller. Throughout its life, Twitch Plays Pokémon has spawned hilarious characters, memorable moments, and even a few religions.

* TheDogWasTheMastermind: The dome fossil, that ancient idol of evil, turned out to be... an Ariados. It had no prior role in the lore whatsoever. The mob collectively shrugged and began arguing over whether to use the Charizard they got from the old amber. In all fairness, according to someone who figured out the randomizer's algorithm accurately, the Helix Fossil would not have been much better - in this world, it's a Qwillfish.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the rest of the Bill saga; Alice is considered one of the most well-adjusted Season 1 protagonists and the overall mood of the run is a lot lighter, and there was only one release the entire run, which fanon has commonly accepted to be an agent of Bill and not actually killed by the release (the first example of non-fatal releasing in the series.) Though it's still darker than the runs that don't contain either of the series' major villains (except maybe ''Black'', which was still dark in its own right.)

* AlternateContinuity / TheFarFuture: The Mob speculated before the run started that it would be one of these.

* EldritchLocation / WorldOfChaos: '''Oh yes.''' Given the presence of punching birds, bugs with death lasers, and a pangolin being called a ''fish'', this is damn-well anticipated.

** Also inverted: It's been theorized that the MAIN CHARACTER is a [[BossInMookClothing PC in Mook Clothing]] due to the fact that her 'starter' is a commonly found Pokemon, not the special starter one normally gets in the game. Most trainers' 'first Pokemon' is generally a common Pokemon. This might be considered a case of {{GMPC}}.

** In a way, randomizing everything in the game the way the streamer has done is the greatest anarchy the Mob could have asked for. But people wasted it.
** The Mob picked the Dome Fossil, but Democracy remained disabled until the Rocket Hideout. Then, Dome was locked forever in the PC.

* HollowVictory : The abuse of Democracy led to an unsatisfying victory after only 8 runs at E4.
* BoringReturnJourney : After the difficulty of Red, the return to Kanto turned incredibly uneventful.
