!!Tropes pertaining to the first game ''Black & Blue'' include:



* BadPeopleAbuseAnimals: Essentially all trainers and professors. The game treats Pokémon battling as if it's a socially acceptable version of abuse and that humans only see Pokémon as tools to be used. It even says Pokémon battting caused many kids to start [[TheBully bullying each other]].
* BatterUp: Cheren has a bloody bat that he beats Pokémon with.

** In addition to once again accusing the ''Pokémon'' franchise of encouraging cruelty to animals, the game is itself an attack towards [=McDonald=]'s, accusing the fast food corporation of teaching children that it's okay to torture and kill animals.
** The opening description of the game accuses Nintendo of releasing two versions of the same ''Pokémon'' game and having the audacity to release a slightly different version a year later. Made even more explicit in the ending, where it is facetiously stated that a sequel with minimal differences called ''Pokémon Purple - A PETA Parody'' will come out because it wouldn't be ''Pokémon'' if they didn't (soy)milk this thing for all it's worth.
** The [=McDonald=]'s customer complains about his childhood being ruined and accuses the Pokémon of taking things too seriously after being defeated, a not-so-subtle jab at [[TakeThatCritics the people who criticized]] ''Pokémon: Black and Blue'' (and presumably PETA's other video game parodies).
