1%%* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Prof. Ilk iz liek, prof of da pokaymanz in Prism.* BaseBreakingCharacter: ** The [[FanNickname Fakemon]] Legendaries in Prism. People either think they're well above usual Fakemon standards as far as hacks go and don't look too far off from regular Pokemon, or they get accusations of falling into the same cliches Fakemon use and/or don't look like Pokemon to begin with.** Earlier, the same criticisms were made about the now-scrapped Prismeon, which would have been [=KoolBoyMan=]'s original contribution to the [[EnsembleDarkhorse ever-popular]] [[FanNickname Eeveelutions]]. The WalkingSpoiler nature of this Pokemon also magnified the fans' reaction to it when they found out about it. Eventually, it was scrapped sometime before the aforementioned Legendaries.* BreatherBoss: ** The third gym leader of ''Prism'', Brooklyn. She has only three Pokémon, one of which is a pre-evolution of the other, and all of which the player has faced earlier in the game.** The sixth gym leader of ''Prism'', Ayana. Like Brooklyn, three of her four Pokémon are ones the player has already encountered, two of which are used by her own trainers. Furthermore, because of their weakness to Fire-type moves, a faster Fire-type Pokémon could sweep all three of them. This isn't so much of the case of her wild card: Drapion, a LightningBruiser which ''doesn't'' have a weakness to Fire, and in fact can use [[DishingOutDirt Earthquake]] to counter them.* EarlyBirdCameo: One of the legendaries from Prism, Phancero, made a fully-playable appearance as a BraggingRightsReward on [[LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemonCrystalAnniversary another popular Pokémon Crystal fanhack]] earlier in 2016, as the only Fakémon available there. [[spoiler:Granted, it ''is'' the pokémon form of [[CreepyPasta OLDEN]], so in a meta sense it's justifiable.]]* EnsembleDarkhorse: Phancero, thanks in part to ''Twitch Plays Pokemon'', has gained a decently-sized following. To the point where it's become a mainstay in ''TPP'' lore and even appears in their dev team's own ROM hacks.* HilariousInHindsight: ''Rijon Adventures'' features a female professor named Jen. Years later, ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Pokémon Black and White]]'' would introduce its own female professor, Juniper.* SequelDisplacement: Being a more developed, expansive game, ''Prism'' gets more attention than ''Brown''.* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel:** ''Pokemon Brown'' [[SpiritualSuccessor was supposed to be a sequel]] to [=KoolBoyMan=]'s earlier ''Fukemon''. Whereas ''Brown'' and ''Prism'' are one of the most innovative {{ROM Hack}}s of their kind, ''Fukemon'' has been relegated to OldShame.** While the quality of ''Brown'' had few doubting that ''Prism'' would be a solid production, the sheer scope of the changes and the vast amount of new features ''Prism'' packed in resulted in thoroughly-impressed adulations from players after the leak.* ThatOneBoss: Fighting-type gym leader Andre comes at the end of a tough segment of the game, and uses a well-rounded team that covers the typing's weaknesses and capitalizes on its strengths. Three of his four Pokémon - [[MageKiller Gallade]], [[LightningBruiser Lucario]], and especially [[MightyGlacier Machamp]] - are top-tier threats that will be a nightmare to unprepared players. Thankfully, he doesn't appear in the final Naljo gym's BossRush (probably because his [[CrazySurvivalist anti-civilization outlook]] wouldn't allow for it).* ThatOnePuzzle: ** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by one of the sages in Magikarp Cavern, who turns you into a Magikarp and puts you in a brutal rapids puzzle to show you the trials wild Magikarp regularly face.** The jewel puzzle in Naljo Ruins has tripped up some players, as it's impossible to proceed unless [[spoiler:the player remembers that they can jump over small gaps with the Jumping Shoes]].


How well does it match the trope?
