  • Allofthe Other Reindeer: Downplayed for the Eds as the fic goes on, since Kevin and Rolf are part of the main group, but Edd's Pichu and Eddy's Pikachu were like this for a pikachu colony due to their different colors.

  • Translator Buddy: Roto-Z, Double D's Rotom Dex and the team rocket Meowth serve this purpose.

  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Many of the groups pokemon fit this bill to a T.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Eddy's Bunnary Jill due to being shiny.
  • Reality Ensues: In chapter 33 Eddy faces off agianst his brother Edmund, considering Eddy is still a newbie trainer with none of his pokemon aside from King (Who he didn't have at the time) or Volty evolving once and Edmund being a top rainbow rocket grunt and earning an ultra beast from Giovanni due to his progress as one, it predictably goes horribly for Eddy.
  • Right-Hand Cat: Giovanni's Persain makes an appearance, but isn't owned by the Boss in the Eds world, coming from the Anime universe.

    • Volty and Fangweed are kanto native pokemon.
    • Jill and Screamer are powerful normal types.
    • Pecky and Skystrike are flying fossil pokemon.
    • King and Bubba are powerful fighting types.
    • Torchy and Fido are fire dog pokemon.

  • Theme Naming: Double D usally names his mons something scientific (Ex: Gallieo the Noctowl, Watt the Pichu, Galapagos the Tirtoga.) and Eddy likes more simple names, (Ex: Wotter the Oshawatt, Pecky the Archen, and Volty the Pikachu.)
  • Talking Animal: Roto-z and the Team rocket trio's Meowth obviously also Grey's Meowstik, Mystik.
  • Take That!: The Gym leader Preston doesn't think fondly of Dynamaxing.
