Added DiffLines:

** The EV Training episode came out just over a week before ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' were released, which dramatically simplified the EV Training process and addressed most ([[StopHavingFunGuys though not all]]) of the issues being parodied.


* BrokenBase: The GrandFinale was rather divisive among viewers, with some seeing it as a good ending that managed to tie up the loose ends (and give [[spoiler:Future]] Rusty the punishment he deserves) while others found it anti-climactic and just generally not very satisfying.

* EarWorm: "''EV training, you're suckin' the fun out! EV training, you're too OLD for this...''"


** Pikachu the Beedrill became a hate-filled sociopath because of Rusty's extremely poor handling, which included being dragged around on a leash instead of in a Poké Ball and trying to make Pikachu evolve by throwing rocks at him when he was still a Kakuna in hopes that one of them was a Sun Stone (which doesn't even evolve Kakunas in general). Not helping was the fact that Professor Tree, who "owned" Pikachu before Rusty took him, apparently thought that he was a paperweight.

Added DiffLines:

** Rusty's true talent of being a cook instead of being destined as a Pokemon trainer foreshadows Uwe Boll's real talent of being a chef by opening his own restaurant after his retirement of film-making (which he had a lack of talent with).


* UnpleasableFanbase: There are some fans who actually ''harassed and bullied'' Dorkly's employees for a new season of Rusty, [[https://youtu.be/U7GX_dWlMVw?t=156 as told in this documentary of making the show]], and it got so bad that the editor-in-chief had to beg the cast of Rusty to come back for one final season, just so said rabid fans would stop bothering Dorkly about Rusty. There were those who were satisfied with the series finale... and those that were not.


* IdiotPlot: Pretty much the whole series, which can be excused considering the main character is ''beyond'' stupid.

* ContinuityLockout: For a BlackComedy web series, there's quite a lot of continuity. Most of the videos tend to be non-episodic and feature a lot of ContinuityNod[=s=] and CallBack[=s=] with little-to-no explanation.

** In the Battlehaus episode, the owner teaches Rusty about 'Stacker Battles' as one of the many battle styles available in the facility. It involves stacking 3 Pokémon together, then having them battle against one another... which is essentially the concept behind the battle system for ''VideoGame/WorldOfFinalFantasy''.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Rusty on account of his complete and utter stupidity getting in the way of his dreams of wanting to be a Pokémon master has made him look sympathetic to some fans even though the series doesn't want you to feel for him. [[spoiler:Then there was the fact he was going to prison for the rest of his life at the age of ''ten'', before eventually being forced to work at his father's deli (which he hated doing) for the rest of his life]].
