Major Humans

    Evan 

Evan (ECBB9CBB1CBA9CB682807CB78200336F0231ACB37CD03391ACD03, Io, Venom Evan)

Twitch's Host for Anniversary Crystal. A boy from Pallet Town. His starter was a Bulbasaur.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Occasionally portrayed this way by certain fan artists. Perhaps to differentiate him from Red and Abe, who look very similar to him.
  • Break the Cutie: Early on, Evan was drawing comparisons to Jimmy C, the ultimate Nice Guy host. Then the S.S. Anne crash and OLDEN happened, and by run's end, a lot of people considered him insane and/or evil, or at least mentally scarred at best.
  • Chick Magnet: Had a pair of twins admiring his raw strength for hours.
    • Lass Dana seems interested as well, giving Evan gifts.
  • Cloning Blues: Evan from the Kanto prologue and Evan from the rest of the run might not be the same person, depending on the headcanon: it is speculated that the latter is a clone of the former after he died.
  • Heroic BSoD: After surviving the SS Anne crash and getting thrown into a PC War over Cyndaquil he literally froze in place.
  • Humanoid Abomination / Tomato in the Mirror: During his fight with the glitch trainer, Evan's name was replaced with a very long string of letters and numbers (seen above), potentially outing him as a glitch himself.
  • Jerkass: Evan is quick to reject almost any request for his number from a Trainer, and even asks them multiple times only to promptly reject each and every single one afterwards.
  • My Greatest Failure: Failing to save Azure from the S.S. Anne was his, to the point that he has nightmares about it.
  • Rail Enthusiast: Much like both A and Arty with the Mt. Chimney Cable Car, Evan has a tendency to take the Magnet Train back and forth between Goldenrod and Saffron multiple times in a row.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Is already showing signs of this.
  • Staring Contest:
    • With a Gentleman in Cherrygrove Pokemon Center.
    • With a Pineco when making the switch to Military Mode.
  • Uneven Hybrid: Celebi is theorized to be a distant ancestor of Evan, due to how Evan's mother can change the time and how easily Evan caught Celebi.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Evan's not good with blue Pokemon or blue rivals. He released Z, Wooper, QH, and Horsea and lost blue-haired Azure on the S.S. Anne. He's also terrified of Suicune.
    • Later his releases become far more numerous (the four listed there were among his first five, but it should be noted that he's released both Omanyte and the Omastar he obtained.

    Azure 

Azure

Evan's neighbor and rival. Professor Oak's granddaughter. Her starter was a Charmander. According to the Mob, she was killed when Team Rocket sunk the S. S. Anne. Her design is based on the scrapped female player character from Red and Blue.

  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Possibly. At one point on Day 6, Evan got a call from Lass Dana, and after the Mob reacted in their usual fashion, the screen turned completely blue obscuring all visuals, which the Mob interpreted as her getting mad at Dana for calling Evan, or possibly at Evan for having moved on. He hasn't shown interest in another girl since then, though, so it seems to have worked.
  • Final Boss: The first time we see her after the S.S. Anne crash is when we fight her after Lance.
  • The Lost Lenore: After the S.S. Anne crash. Her memory still haunts Evan.
  • Love Interest: Official Couple with Evan in most lore.
  • One Steve Limit: She shares her name with one half of the Stadium duo. On the other hand, they may be the same person.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: The chat believed she met a watery grave on the SS Anne, and is affecting the glitches with the display and the stream from beyond, perhaps even as part of OLDEN.
  • Put on a Bus: Was last seen on the SS Anne prior to its sinking, and none of the Devs are saying if she's ever going to be seen again.
    • The Bus Came Back: She survived the sinking and made her way to the top of the Elite Four.
  • Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Has a much nicer personality than Blue or Silver, but is much more brutal due to the advanced AI.

    Silver 

Silver

A young boy from Johto who steals a Totodile from Professor Elm, becoming Evan's new rival.

  • The Rival: His Croconaw fought Lord Helix, echoing the fated battle from two years ago.

     Simon 

Burglar Simon

A petty thief from Kanto who stole Evan's Boulder and Cascade badges. In the original Red run, he trapped Red for hours in a two-square space in Cinnabar Mansion, and then he did the same to Abe in Anniversary Red. Evan finds out his name by battling him at Azalea Gym. He then appeared again at the Olivine Lighthouse and in the Goldenrod Underground, at which point he was officially declared to be a third rival. He made another appearance in Vermillion City, then another in the Battle Tent Ruins and in front of the Pewter Museum. His final encounter was at the Cinnabar Volcano, where he does not battle Evan but instead gives him the Research Notes he stole from Blaine.

  • Ascended Extra: In canon, he only appears in the Generation I games and their remakes (and is only named in the latter as regular trainers weren't given names until Generation II). Because of an oversight by the developers allowing him to box trainers in with no escape other than Dig/Escape Rope or blacking out on wild Pokémon, however, he made a lasting impact on both Gen I TPP runs, so the TPP Crystal hack turned him into a recurring antagonist.
  • Not So Different: In a shocking and sad way, he is this to Evan. Both searched high and low for their friends, yet Evan's story had a happy ending. Simon's journey, however, ends in tragedy when he returns to the Cinnabar Volcano, the site of the Pokemon Mansion's destruction, and finally realizes and accepts that his partner died in the eruption 3 months ago.
  • The Lost Lenore: A variant. The Lenore in question is his partner. He was killed when the Cinnabar Volcano erupted and burned down the Pokemon Mansion.

    Gym Leaders 

Jasmine

The leader of Olivine Gym. She was the most challenging Gym Leader initially, taking six attempts to defeat. When Hard Mode was unlocked, her change was to utilize her own personal Pokemon, having nicknamed them to show her bond. During the catching portion of the run, Evan repeatedly went back to talk to her whenever they passed through Olivine, including specifically seeking her out post-game in the vein of Crystal's trek to talk to Joey.

  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: All rematch Gym Leaders had full teams of six, but there are only five fully-evolved Steel-types in Generation II (Steelix, Scizor, Forretress, Skarmory, and Magneton). The sixth slot in her team was filled by Amphy, the Ampharos from Olivine Lighthouse.
  • The Nicknamer: During her rematch, all of her Pokémon had nicknames. Two of these were actually canon to the games (Rusty the Steelix, as seen in contests during DPP, and Amphy the Ampharos)

Janine

The leader of Fuchsia Gym, and the daughter of Elite Four member Koga. A kunoichi who uses Poison types like her father. When Hard Mode was unlocked, her change to challenge Evan was that she and all of her trainers became invisible, forcing the Mob to navigate through her maze of invisible walls by memory.

Sabrina

The leader of Saffron Gym. Uses Psychic types. When Hard Mode was unlocked, her change to challenge Evan was to remodel her Gym. Originally, her Gym consisted of several rooms with teleporters and trainers in them. Now, there are no trainers, but the teleporter rooms have been converted into a single, central room with many teleporters in it, acting as a maze. A somewhat challenging yet doable task for one person, but an infuriating nightmare for many at once.

    Team Rocket (MISSILE BOMB) 
A dangerous criminal organization. They attacked and sunk the S.S. Anne.

Minor Humans

    Trainers 

Youngster Joey

A boy on Route 30 in Johto. He gave his phone number to Evan after he won the battle. Has had a shipping with AJ in the original "Crystal" run. His phone number has since been deleted, but was reacquired.

  • Yandere: Portrayed as a clingy stalker who subtly threatens Evan whenever he mentions Azure.

Hiker Anthony

A Man on Route 33 in Johto. He too has given his phone number to Evan. Has a Cyndaquil that is most likely the one that Evan released.

Fisherman Tully

A man on Route 42 in Johto; another of Evan's phone contacts. Somehow manages to reel in non-Water types like Sneasel, Sunflora, and Girafarig. Also was the source of the Water Stone used to evolve SSRJDM into a Vaporeon.

Lass Dana

A girl on Route 38 in Johto who gave Evan her number. She also gave him a Thunder Stone as a gift, which he used to evolve his second Eevee into a Jolteon.

    Special TPP Characters 

The Helix Choir Biker Gang

In Anniversary Crystal, the Biker gang on the path to Lavender Town has been rewritten into "The Helix Choir". All of them use Pokemon from TPP Red. The first member uses DUX, Cabbage, Digrat, and Abby. The second used Lord Dome and the False Prophet. The third and final one used Lord Helix. The Mob themselves called them the Forced Lore Gang.

Bird Keeper Bob

A Bird Keeper who rambles on about "happy little clouds and trees".

Pokefan Joshua

A man (and his son) from another region. His team consists of a Graveler, Tentacruel, Azumarill, and Vileplume. Has a fondness for cabbage.

Fisherman Revo

Sage Streamer

    Non-Trainer Characters

Evan's Hall of Fame Party

    As a Whole 
Evan's team since Morty up until the end of the game. It has entered the Hall of Fame three times. Deposited, released and/or returned to its owner during the post-game, after the last save.

  • Badass Crew: The second team in TPP history where all Pokémon managed to reach level 100.
  • The Fellowship Has Ended: The team who accompanied Evan through thick and thin for most of the run disbanded after overcoming the last challenge of the game.
    • Queendra, being a queen, went back to rule her country.
    • Lord Amber went to sleep, waiting for the moment the world would need him again.
    • Sailor Moo broke up with Tux and became a nurse of sorts, taking care of other Pokèmon in need.
    • Kenya Jr. ended her journey by delivering her mail and reuniting with her owner.
    • Fox and Tux stayed behind and took up raising the next generation of possible champions.
  • Order Versus Chaos: The team is usually symbolically balanced in a variety of ways.
    • Having an even number of Special and Physical oriented attackers.
    • Having an Omanyte (Helix) with Gen II Leer (Lazor Gator)
    • Resurrecting Amber and keeping him onboard to the Elite 4.
    • Started in Kanto, then switched to Johto.
    • The first team to favor Jolteon, over Flareon's Curse or Vaporeon's Will (though it had a Vaporeon for a little while)
    • The most stable team so far includes three male Pokémon from Kanto and three female Pokémon from Johto.
  • Plot Armor: Enforced after mail was given to the team post-E4, leaving them immune to PC troubles.
  • The Team:
    • Lord Amber is Big Good, the fossil leader of the first run of the season.
    • Tux is The Leader, the original team carry, and first grass starter to make it to the Elite 4.
    • Kenya Jr. is Number Two, staying on the team the longest, and one of the most reliable in battle.
    • Sailor Moo combines The Big Guy with The Chick, a heavy hitting physical attacker, but an Adorkable love interest for The Leader and the team's healer.
    • Queendra is roughly The Smart Guy, acting as a judge.
    • Fox is the Sixth Ranger, a late comer who started as The Load, but then went on to be as strong as any of the others.

    ul:::utx (Tux) 

ul:::utxx the Venusaur (Tux, Ultimax, Ultrasaur)

Evan's starter. A Bulbasaur obtained from Professor Oak. Evolved into Ivysaur at Level 19 on Route 3, then evolved into Venusaur at Level 41 at the Dark Cave. Sturdy body.

  • Crutch Character: Was once the most high leveled 'mon on the team, vastly outleveling the rest up the team by at least a dozen levels. Which predictably became a sticking point for members of the mob who want a challenge. Subverted, though, as once the party stabilized the others gradually caught up to him before the first E4 challenge, and he's stayed on the team long after that.
  • Dance Battler: Petal Dances away the Elite 4, and much more.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Fury Cutter used to destroy Will routinely. He's since lost Fury Cutter, and later Cut, as well, but due to his heavy usage of those moves he's still usually depicted with a cane-sword.
  • Green Thumb: Tux's main type. His Grass moves have always been his main attacks, too.
  • The Leader: The starter, and the team's main carry through the first 8 (technically 10) badges.
  • The Paladin: Has shades of this, in the Role-Playing Games sense of the term. During the E4 rematch, the mob's main tactic was to have him out to take hits so that the party could be revived and healed. Thanks to his almost unrivaled bulk, and the mob exploiting Bruno's AI, they were able to cure the whole team, while taking little to no damage.
  • Poisonous Person: Tux's secondary type. Finally learned Sludge Bomb on Day 19.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Almost always rendered in a tuxedo, befitting his name.
    • Sometimes given an association with Tuxedo Mask to go along with "Sailor Moo".

     JHH (Lord Amber) 

JHH the Aerodactyl (Jihad, Lord Amber, Olden Amber)

A male Aerodactyl revived from the Old Amber. The similarity of this fossil's name to the Eldritch Abomination that has currently been plaguing the run has not been lost on the chat.

  • Big Good: The Fossil God of the first run of a season, like season 2's Dome and season 1's Helix.
  • Death-or-Glory Attack: Learned Sky Attack, Bird Jesus' Signature Move, over Hyper Beam.
  • Determinator: In the final battle against the champion, Azure, JHH went up against their entire team and took hits from almost all of them. He didn't just survive, he won with a complete sweep.
  • Grail in the Garbage: Well, not exactly in the garbage, but given the status that fossils have in TPP, finding the Old Amber as a prize in the Bug-Catching Contest was rather unexpected.
    • Fridge Brilliance: The concept behind the Old Amber as a fossil stems from the idea that a mosquito frozen in Amber that had drank blood from a dinosaur could be used to extract viable dinosaur DNA. Therefore, implicitly the prize for the Bug-Catching Contest was, in fact, an ancient bug.
  • Use Your Head: Knows Iron Head.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Came fully equipped with Hyper Beam when revived, though he's since lost the move.
  • Unfortunate Names / Unfortunate Implications: One of the names that the Mob assigned Evan's Aerodactyl is Jihad. Yeah...

    —-sxjx KKK (Queendra) 

---sxjxKKK the Kingdra (Queendra, Justice Scalea, Sexy KKK)

A female Seadra captured on Route 40 near the end of Day 6. She was added to the team shortly afterwards in place of Sergeant Doom. She evolved into Kingdra on Day 11.

  • An Ice Person: Now knows Ice Beam thanks to the Move Relearner.
  • Making a Splash: Her primary type. She's also always had at least one water move, and she's currently the designated Waterfall and Surf user.
  • Unfortunate Names: "Sexy KKK".
  • Soap Box Sadie: Its 'Social Justice' nickname. If not being an actual judge.

    FOX,/!!!)u (Fox) 

FOX,/!!!)u the Jolteon (Fox McClutch, Spark Fox, Prophet of Amber)

An Eevee received from Bill at the start of Day 7, added directly to the team. Having received a Thunder Stone not even an hour before getting him, the chat stopped everything else in order to evolve him to Jolteon as soon as possible.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": "FOX" was obtained as an Eevee, which is based on a fennec fox.
  • Butt-Monkey: Players and trolls alike switched in FOX during battles back when it was severely underleveled, causing it to faint instantly and wasting a turn. Whether it's because of the fact that it was an emergency replacement for Vaporeon or because it had a terrible moveset, many saw as evidence of it not worth being trained, and FOX was almost universally hated.
    • Throw the Dog a Bone: Day 10 was dedicated to leveling him up. While he was still the lowest-leveled member of the team, he became a lot closer to the others now and has Thunderbolt.
  • Lovable Coward: Often used Baton Pass to escape from battles.
  • The Dragonslayer: Like ATV before him, went from being a nobody to destroying Lance's Dragonite. Three of them with actual attacking moves instead of exploiting the AI to get one like his predecessor.
  • Took a Level in Badass: From being the team's butt monkey and support unit to being a heavy hitter during the Elite 4 runs. Up to and including felling 3 of Lance's Dragonite in one go.
    • Happened again in Kanto against Blaine. After Blaine had taken out everyone except for him, he pulled through and made an incredible comeback with a combination of clutch Thunders and missed Fire Blasts.
    • And once more against Blue, where he was once again the only Pokemon left against 3 of Blue's remaining team members. With only 5% health remaining, FOX swept the remainder of Blue's team with Thunder.
  • Shock and Awe: His type, and the type of three of his moves (Thunder, Thunderbolt, and Thunder Wave).
  • Support Party Member: His early moveset seemed geared towards this, with him learning Growth, Baton Pass, and Charm. While actually using the first two to pass off buffs to other Pokemon didn't often pan out, Charm proved to be valuable in debuffing several gym leaders' Pokemon and allowing his teammates to survive their attacks. After a trip to the Move Relearner, he now knows Thunder Wave, which can downright cripple any Pokemon that could pose a potential threat due to higher Speed.
  • The Heart: His most-used moves were Baton Pass and Charm: the former lets him switch to another Pokémon while still taking the hit for them if slower than the opponent, the latter simply charms the enemy into greatly lowering their Attack. Both can make battles much easier on the rest of the party.

    !L (Sailor Moo) 

!L the Miltank (Ellie, Dame Miltank, L, Sailor Moo)

A Miltank that joined the party after losing QH. She's a little quick tempered. She was an integral member of the team throughout the run, but was boxed during the postgame.

  • Action Girl/Stone Wall: Thanks to her combination of conservative attack moves, flinch-inflicting attacks and self-healing, she has a survivability on par with Tux.
  • The Big Guy: A heavy hitter who has maintained a pretty good movepool throughout. Being a cow helps also.
  • Cursed With Awesome: Was given the usually nigh-useless Bide move by leveling up. However, in this version Bide actually lets Pokémon use other moves while storing power for Bide, meaning she gets a free retaliation attack.
  • Making a Splash: Learned Surf, which was the source of her "Sailor Moo" nickname, and later learned Whirlpool. Both were eventually deleted, though.
  • Otaku: In between being called L and being nicknamed Sailor Moo, she's been accused of being a weeamoo.
  • The Bus Came Back: May be Whitney's Miltank, if you consider Tux and Miltank as a potential couple because of Attract.
  • The Medic: Knew Milk Drink, making her able to heal herself and the team. Eventually overwritten using a TM, and then relearned via move tutor.
  • Utility Party Member: Spent some time as this due to her moveset including Strength, Surf, and Whirlpool. This came at the cost of severely limiting her effectiveness in battle, especially since she didn't have the Special Attack to back up Whirlpool and Surf. Eventually Surf was moved to Queendra and Whirlpool was temporarily deleted, though it's since come back.

    KENYA (Kenyowl) 

KENYA the Noctowl (Kenya Jr., Kenyowl)

A female Noctowl received from an NPC in Goldenrod City. She holds Mail and cannot be deposited or released as a result.

  • But Now I Must Go: After defeating Elm, she delivered her mail to the requisite NPC, leaving the party forever.
  • Name's the Same: As Aooo's Groudon, invoked since both were received from the same particular NPC. (Though the capitalization is different since default names were no longer in all-caps by Generation IV). note 
    • Call-Back: In addition, Aooo also received a Noctowl from an NPC. In her game, Shuckie the Shuckle was randomized to a Noctowl.
  • Number Two: An early game bird like Brian and Bird Jesus. The most consistent member, possibly because it has to stay on the party until its mail is removed or it completes its mission.
  • Required Party Member: Couldn't be removed from the party as long as she holds on to her Mail; since then, the rest of the party has started using this.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: After she was taught Hyper Beam, it grew into her signature move.

In Daycare

    BCCCCC Cu B? 

BCCCCCCuB? the Ariados (B-Cup)

A male Spinarak captured after the shuffle at the Daycare. It later evolved to Ariados.

  • Poisonous Person: Poison-type and is equipped with Sludge, which has a 30% chance of poisoning the opponent.
  • Support Party Member: Has Baton Pass and a Status Buff (Growth), as well as the speed-lowering Scary Face and the aforementioned poison-inducing Sludge.

    Squirtle 

Squirtle the Squirtle (SquirtLee)

An Egg obtained after losing QH. it eventually hatched into a male Squirtle named Squirtle. He was almost named XOOOF and is quick to flee. Was sent to the Day Care in order to bring Amber onto the team without having to use the PC.
  • Interface Spoiler: Again averted; the same glitch that turned Qoof into a Fletchinder had Squirtle rendered as a Flaaffy.
  • Put on a Bus: Sent away in order to make space on the team for the revived Lord Amber.

On Standby

    RRRHHQZ 

RRRHHQZ the Togepi (Rayquaza)

Hatched from the Pokemon Egg given to Evan by Professor Elm. Has good endurance. Deposited in the shuffle at the daycare, only to return during the postgame.

  • Our Fairies Are Different: Unlike in the original Generation II games, Togepi is now a Fairy-type, like in Generation VI.
  • Put on a Bus: Spent most of the run in the PC, but was brought back after all the bosses were defeated.

    SSRJDM 

SSRJDM the Vaporeon (Super Saiyan Jaden, Sergeant Doom, the True Prophet, Anarchic Vaporeon)

A male Eevee received from Bill. Joined the party after QH was released. Later evolved into Vaporeon in Goldenrod City in Anarchy and was boxed late on Day 6.

  • Foil: To the Flareon from the original TPP Red.
  • Making a Splash: Water-type and has Bubblebeam and Surf.
  • Put on a Bus: Part of the team from early Day 4 to late Day 6.

    TBA Ap QP 

TBAApQP the Ampharos (TBA)

A female Flaaffy that was withdrawn after losing QH. She evolved to Ampharos at Level 30.

  • Actual Pacifist: Had a moveset with no offensive moves at a certain point. She has since learned Strength.
  • The Medic: Knows Heal Bell, which can heal the party's status problems, and has used it to help her teammates more than once.
  • Put on a Bus: Like Sergeant Doom, she joined the team early on Day 4 and was boxed near the end of Day 6.

    Swinub 

Swinub the Swinub

Caught at Dark Cave. Withdrawn from the PC during the PC shuffle that ended up boxing Hoothoot and Oddish and deposited during the shuffle at the daycare.

    SPOOKS 

SPOOKS the Gastly

A female Gastly traded for Farfetch'd. Impetuous and silly. Deposited in the shuffle at the Daycare.

    KJJKLLLLLL 

KJJKLLLLLL the Venonat (Dr. Jekyll)

A female Venonat.

    Shuckie 

Shuckie the Shuckle

A Pokémon picked up at Cianwood City after the end of the run proper. Deposited shortly thereafter.

    QQOOOOOOOF 

QQOOOOOOOF the Pichu (Fletchu, Qoof)

A female Pichu hatched from the Odd Egg received from the Daycare Man.

  • Interface Spoiler: Averted for once. In the original Crystal run (and even earlier in this run when RRRHHQZ was in his egg), the HUD revealed the identity of the Pokémon in an egg as well as what its moveset would be upon hatching, but for some reason she was displayed as a Level 0 Fletchinder (which isn't even in this game, as far as we know) until hatching from her egg.

     B-List Pokemon 

/UluUDCC?T the Rattata (C'thulu, Uluu Duct, Ultrarat)

A Rattata caught on Route 1 with Evan's last Pokeball. Deposited during a PC shuffle for Cyndaquil.

VVvvv:;;; the Magikarp.

Deposited during a PC shuffle for Helix.

  • Famous Last Words: Surf you fools.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Willingly went into the PC for Helix to make it into the party.
  • Making a Splash: A Water-type. Unlike most Magikarp, it actually managed to learn a Water-type move (Bubble) despite not evolving.

ZQR the Oddish (Zuckerberg)

Caught in Route 25. Boxed when Evan needed the egg from Professor Elm.

Hoothoot

A Hoothoot captured on the way to Sprout Tower. Boxed when Evan needed the Egg from Professor Elm.

ZQRAA the Umbreon (Zecora)

A female Umbreon caught on Route 38, just after B-Cup's evolution.

VW ZXSJTJ the Scyther and VVWVV///Mx the Beedrill

Two female Bug-types caught on Day 5.

  • Herald: VVWVV///Mx could be considered this in the Biblical sense, as it was her capture that allowed Evan to win the Bug-Catching Contest and acquire the Old Amber.
  • Punny Name: They're VW Bugs.

Snorlax (Master Snorlax)

A Snorlax notable for being caught with the Master Ball.

Forretress

The leader of the KAPOW Patch. Was captured at Level 49 as a Pineco and withdrawn and fed a Rare Candy in Democracy, allowing him to evolve, in order to get Forretress's Pokédex entry.

Released

    Z 

Z the Cyndaquil (BEZT, Pokemon Z)

Evan's Johto Starter. Barely lasted over 5 hours...

    Wooper 
A Wooper that was caught at Slowpoke Well. It was released in the first Daycare Shuffle.

    QH 

QH the Omanyte (Queen Helix, Lazor Helix)

Another incarnation of Lord Helix. Likes to thrash about.

    Ylljiii/// 

Ylljiii/// the Chansey (Yuji, Jelly)

The second of two Chansey caught in rapid succession on Day 4. She was released after just 1 hour and 7 minutes.

    VVMLVV,,Qx 

VVMLVV,,Qx the Horsea (Velma, NotATK)

A Horsea caught late on Day 6. Two hours later, she was released during an attempt to retrieve Sergeant Doom after accidentally boxing him.

  • Red Shirt/Sacrificial Lamb: A longstanding member of the team gets deposited in the PC, and the only casualty is a Pokémon that had been caught just two hours prior, whose evolved form had also just been captured and actually added to the team.

    DDCC(llsjj 

DDCC(llsjj the Caterpie (DLC, Downloadable Caterpie)

A Caterpie released on Day 16.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: The Mob absolutely needed the ability to capture Pokémon again to progress, as Celebi needed to be captured to fulfill one of the Gym Leader rematch sidequests. This Caterpie was the only casualty, and Celebi was captured, followed by a successful auto-box-switch since Celebi's capture refilled Box 2.

    WWWXXXXXWW 

WWWXXXXXWW the Primeape

A Primeape released on day 17.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Same as DLC, since upon filling Box 3, Evan once again declined to auto-switch the first time it was offered.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Released just 18 minutes after capture.

    XXYYYY 

XXYYYY the Porygon

A Porygon captured and released as part of a catching spree on Day 19.

Traded Away

    zzqqqqqh 

zzqqqqqh the Farfetchd

A Farfetchd that was traded away for SPOOKS.

Wild/Legendary/Other Mon

    The Legendary Doges 

Raikou (Thunder Entei, Yellow Entei, IIIIIII)

Grrraaasshh!!

The Legendary Doge of Thunder. After being awakened within the Burned Tower, it roams the land of Johto along with its fellow trio members. It eventually came under the control of Lt. Surge in his rematch with Evan, but after his defeat continued to roam Johto. It occasionally makes stops on the rooftop of the Goldenrod Radio Tower, accessible via a secret panel in the Director's office on the 5th floor. It was captured using the third Master Ball on Day 25.

Entei (TriHard, Master TriHard)

Gurooahhh!!

The Legendary Doge of Fire. Unfortunately, it fails to live up to that title in the eyes of the Mob, who view it as one of the weakest Pokemon in existence due to its incredibly awful record during intermissions. It has become the butt of many jokes and is hated by all. On certain days of the week, it can be found inside of Cinnabar Volcano. Caught with the second Master Ball on Day 21.

  • Ascended Meme: Since it was captured in Democracy, the Mob was able to actually name it "TriHard".

Suicune (Don, Dong, Water Entei, Blue Entei, VVVVVVVVVV, Vong)

Furoooooh!!

The Legendary Doge of Water, representing the North Wind. After being reawakened in the Burned Tower with its fellow trio members, it eventually arrived at the Tin Tower and challenged Evan, but due to the Box being full it could not be caught, so the Mob ran from it. However, it still continues to relentlessly pursue Evan and the Mob, appearing when they least expect it, for reasons unknown. It later reappeared as a part of Misty's rematch team, and later as a part of Baba's team under the name of DONG. It can be found on certain days of the week in Tohjo Falls.

  • An Ice Person: Aurora Beam.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy/The Dragon: Theorized that the infamous "purple health" glitch may indicate that it is being possessed by OLDEN, or working for OLDEN.
  • Increasingly Lethal Enemy: The Mob ran from it twice. Suicune's response? Appear again, with additional purple health. Once Hard Mode was enabled, it became Level 100.
  • Making a Splash: Bubblebeam.
  • Stalker Without A Crush: Has appeared at some of the most inopportune times to challenge the Mob, such as at Tohjo Falls after Giovanni's defeat, and shortly afterward when it attacked again on Route 29.
  • Unknown Rival: Consistently appears before Evan to challenge him, even in Kanto.

    The Guardian Beasts of the Sea and Sky 

Lugia (vuukccccc)

Gyaaaaas!

The Guardian Beast of the Sea, Master of the Legendary Birds, and part of a duo along with Ho-Oh, being the dragon to its phoenix. Long ago, Pryce witnessed it and managed to acquire one of its feathers, the Silver Wing. After being defeated in a rematch, Pryce gave the wing to Evan, telling him to find and challenge Lugia. It lay dormant in the Whirl Islands until Evan captured it.

  • Leitmotif: Unlike the original Crystal, its theme from the Gen IV remakes has been ported over and given a new 8-bit rearrangement, albeit with its extended intro cut, which is justified due to potential issues with its tempo and instrumentation.

Ho-Oh (UUUUUUULL)

Shaoooh!

The Guardian Beast of the Sky, Master of the Legendary Doges. It landed atop Tin Tower when Evan captured said Doges, and Morty refused to rematch Evan until he captured it.

    The Voice of the Forest 

Celebi

The guardian of Ilex Forest. After defeating Burglar Simon in the Rocket Hideout, Evan received the GS Ball. He headed to Ilex Forest and placed the Ball into the shrine, summoning a Level 100 Celebi which he caught.

    The Ancestor of All Living Pokemon 

Mew (-----, Dash, No Name, K', Nameless)

Mew!

Returning from Anniversary Red is Mew, the 151st Pokemon said to be the progenitor of all others. Instead of hiding underneath a truck in the docks of Vermilion, it moved to Bill's Secret Garden on Route 25, hiding inside of a tree. It no longer resides on Unknown Island, but rather Guyana, its true home. The pathway leading to it is a cave similar to the one it lay dormant in during Anniversary Red. Its home is a secret spring found only by navigating through a series of ladders within the cave. The Mob caught it at Level 99.

  • The Missingno.: Potentially named after one. It has the exact same name as a glitch Pokemon from generation IV.

    The Legendary Birds 

Articuno (Ice Boyd, In Anarchy)

Fuoooh!

Hidden within the Seafoam Islands is Articuno, the Legendary Bird of Ice. It was caught in Democracy, and given the name that the Mob had originally wanted to give to Mewtwo: "In Anarchy".

  • Who's on First?: The point of its nickname. While the mob initially wanted to name Mewtwo In Anarchy, it was named in anarchy, so Articuno was named In Anarchy instead.

Zapdos (Bird Raikou, !!!!!?????)

Bizaaaaah!!

Hidden within the Power Plant's secret underground caves is Zapdos, the Legendary Bird of Thunder. This Pokemon has held a long standing of symbolism and renown throughout the history of TPP, having been present within the first runs of each season.

  • Leitmotif: Instead of simply using the Kanto battle music, it uses a rearrangement of its theme from X & Y which it also shared with Mewtwo, itself a remix of the Kanto battle theme.

Moltres (Bird Entei, RQQQQQQQQH)

Gyaoooh!

Hidden within the Cinnabar Volcano is Moltres, the Legendary Bird of Fire.

    The World's Strongest 

Mewtwo (—-__, Dashtwo)

Mew!

The so-called "World's Strongest Pokemon", the 150th to be discovered, and a genetic clone of Mew. Once Evan had defeated Blue, he was told of Mewtwo's existence - that it was so powerful and vicious that it was deemed too much of a threat for ordinary trainers to handle, and thus it was sealed inside of Cerulean Cave so that it would never get the chance to cause an unfathomable calamity. However, Evan had proven himself to be no ordinary trainer, and Blue notified the guard watching the cave to unseal the entrance to allow Evan inside.

  • Leitmotif: Mewtwo uses its battle theme from X & Y, along with all of the other Kanto legendaries.

Other

    OLDEN 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/olden_wutface_6.png

A glitch that manifested in Bugsy's gym. Or is it something else entirely...? May also be named INOL. It manifested again as a trainer version of Hex 00 out of improperly loaded map data. After being seemingly left behind in Johto, it appeared once again in Kanto due to Evan's box being full while doing the Old Man tutorial in Viridian City. It later incarnated itself as a Ledian in Johto's National Park, which the Mob later caught. Although the Mob had hoped that it would never again torment them now that it is sealed within the PC, its power continues to seep out.

  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Took the form of a Ledian in Johto. After being caught in a Bug-Catching Contest, Democracy was activated, and they acknowledged it as OLDEN, naming it as such. It ended up being the lone Pokémon on Evan's team when the stream finally ended.
  • Big Bad: Probably this for Season 3.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Ledian is assumed to be its harbinger, and after the switch glitch was repaired it was revealed that the other Pokemon on the trainer's team was an Ariados.
  • Confusion Fu: In the trainer battle it had a physically oriented Gastly with Extremespeed and Tackle. It also used a Golbat with Wrap and Rollout.
    • A full list of its team can be found here, and it only gets more bizarre.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The stream crashed the instant it appeared, and some assume it to be an "outer god" not of the Twitch Plays Pokémon world.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Some see them as this for the entirety of Twitch Plays Pokemon up to this point, given their apparent control of both the Glitches in Season 2, and more than likely having some influence over the events of Season 1.
  • Leaking Can of Evil: It seems the PC isn't a well-made can, as OLDEN continues to wreak havoc upon reality. For one, it briefly froze the game after Morty's puzzle was cleared, trapping Evan in a void of darkness as the original map of Morty's gym appeared behind him.
  • Reality Warper: Military mode was briefly destroyed after OLDEN appeared.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The Mob caught it as a Ledian and sealed it within the confines of the PC, hoping that it would never again torment them.
  • Stealth Pun: The Bug-type gym was the site of the most glitches, aka bugs.
  • Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: Appeared as a female trainer with level 100 glitch mons. Possible the ghost of Azure.
  • The Missingno.: Spawned from a glitch in the custom AI's switching mechanisms.

Secret Characters and Locations

    Secret Area # 1 

Battle Tent Ruins

The site of many, many glitches in Anniversary Red, but also a source of income as it allowed the Mob to gain money easily. It has become almost completely destroyed, having been out of commission for quite some time. The facility still has secrets, however, and can be brought back to somewhat-operational status. Unlocking the door in the entrance leads to the Arena, where Bill can be fought. However, above the Arena is the Storage Room, which houses a PC that acts as a battle simulator.

    Secret Area # 2 

Rocket Hideout Ruins

The ruins of the original Kanto Rocket Hideout in Celadon City. Boulders now block the paths to the elevators, and one area has been almost completely flooded due to extensive damage. There is, however, a power generator which controls the power to the Battle Tent. Unfortunately, the infamous spinning tiles are still there. And they're active.

    Secret Area # 3 

Mt. Nightmare (Mt. Dream, Mt. Twitch)

A recreation of the Mt. Silver Peak, but without an entry point. Once the place where Dream Red was fought, it now serves as the residence of Elf Coach's Baba. A once seemingly-peaceful dream world has now become a nightmare of grammatically-incorrect English.

  • Eldritch Location: Much like in Anniversary Red, reality seems to bend and twist according to its occupant, a former host of the Mob.

    Secret Area # 4 

Guyana

Guyana is a country along the northern coast of South America. It's also Mew's natural habitat thanks to Early Installment Weirdness where real-world locations were mentioned in Generation I games. Past a series of ledges is a cave known colloquially as "Mew Cave" or "Unknown Cave", the former being an informal name used by the Mob and the latter being a reference to the development name for Mew's island in Anniversary Red: "Unknown Island".

    Secret Area # 5 (Final Area) 

Mt. Silver Ruins

When Abe was defeated, the mural behind him opened to reveal a mysterious cave similar to the Ruins of Alph. It appears to have strange, yet familiar messages on the walls, and holes. Lots of holes.

  • Easter Egg: If you look closely at the Unown on the walls, you can see that they spell out phrases that are quite familiar to TPP chat, such as "RIOTRIOTRIOT", "TEHURN", and "WOWDEKUONEHAND".
  • Eldritch Location: No one knows exactly what this place is.

    Secret Boss # 1 

Pokemaniac Bill

Hidden within the ruins of the Battle Tent was the creator of the dreaded PC himself, Bill. He uses a team of every single Eeveelution at Level 100.

  • Bonus Boss: Seems to be intended as an optional boss given that his team is all at Level 100 and that finding him requires a complicated (at least by TPP standards) method of unlocking him.

    Secret Boss # 2 

Pokemon League PC

Yes, the feared PC that replaced Giovanni as the leader of the Viridian Gym returns from Anniversary Red. Now, there are two options when battling it: face a stronger version of your own team, or some of the strongest Pokemon known to man. The Mob managed to defeat the team they created; after many tries, they have also beaten the Ultimate Team, proving that they are superior to a machine that has killed so many of their Pokémon.

  • Bonus Boss: Can be fought directly after Bill by heading into the next room
  • Mirror Match: One of the options it gives is to fight Your Own Team. The Mob beat it just to prove that they are better than a machine, especially a machine that is their Arch-Enemy.
  • SNK Boss: The Ultimate Team. Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Lugia, Ho-Oh, and Mewtwo. That is all.

    Secret Boss # 3 

Pokemon Trainer AJDNNW

brightbastart

The protagonist of Twitch Plays Pokémon Crystal. The Mob found him in the Viridian City Trainer House.

  • SNK Boss: His team isn't called "The Godslayers" for nothing.

    Secret Boss # 4 

Elf Coach's Baba

select

The protagonist of Twitch Plays Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal. She is the replacement for Dream Red, only available to be fought after all 16 Badges have been collected. Evan encountered her after falling asleep in his old bed at his original house.

  • Bonus Boss: Her entire team is Level 100 and includes Suicune.
  • Time Travel: Of the dream variety, if you subscribe to the idea that this run takes place before Vietnamese Crystal.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the Vietnamese Crystal run proper, EVER, ORGY, and DEKU were woefully underlevelled HM slaves. Here? They're all fully evolved (ORGY into a Politoed) and at level 100, on par with BEST, DADA, and DONG.

    Secret Boss # 5 

Professor Oak

After the Mob had defeated all 16 Gym Leaders again, they went to confirm it with Professor Oak, only for him to initiate a surprise battle. He uses a modified version of his Anniversary Red team, ported over from his unused trainer data in Yellow.

    Secret Boss # 6 

Red

start9

The original host. Unlike in Anniversary Red, where he was merely a dream, this is the real deal. As the Mob approached the entrance to Mt. Silver, Red suddenly emerged from the cave and engaged Evan in battle.

    Secret Boss # 7  

AIIIAAB

wait4baba

The starting host of Season 2, and the first to catch every Pokemon in the Kanto Pokedex. He awaits at the top of Mt. Silver, apparently having kicked out Red. It also appears as though he's made some...interesting design changes to the Mt. Silver Peak.

  • Final Boss: Of Anniversary Crystal. But of course, it wouldn't be an Anniversary run if there wasn't one last surprise waiting...

    Secret Boss # 8 - True Final Boss 

Professor Elm

Deep inside the Unown Dungeon, after an encounter with a mysterious bird Pokémon, Professor Elm appeared out of nowhere and congratulated Evan on completing the Pokédex... before challenging him to battle.

  • Ambiguously Gay: According to some chat interpretations, Elm hits on Evan when Evan shows him the Togepi hatched from the Egg received in Violet City. It's also noted that Togepi is a Fairy-type in this hack.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: Nobody expected Elm would appear as an opponent in game, let alone in the final dungeon! Oak in Anniversary Red at least had an excuse of having unused battle data in original Red & Blue, but that hasn't happened with the Professors in any later titles.
  • Leitmotif: Uses remixed version of Kanto Champion theme, based on the version included in Pokémon Black & White.
  • Original Generation: Unlike every other character in the game - including the secret bosses and even Professor Oak - Professor Elm had no pre-established preferences for a Pokémon team, so his party was made entirely from scratch.
  • True Final Boss: Of Anniversary Crystal.
