After a long hiatus, it returns from 27th February 2019.

  • Bladder of Steel: Post-hiatus, the 22/11 stream will air episodes 1 through 44 of of the first season, alongside Pokémon: The First Movie, which is astonishing considering episodes were aired in 12~ episode chunks daily. assuming regular episodes lasts about 15-20 minutes each with 5 minute breaks, it'll total over 18 hours, and this isn't even considering Pokémon: The First Movie.
    • From the 28th Febuary 2018, the Sinnoh seasons are being aired in 51-episode chunks with about 5 minutes of downtime between each one, inflating it to around 17 hours (based around 20-minute episodes alone)
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Gligarman, and to an extent Duplica, where people will note her absence during episode breaks. tends to be a common thing involving female characters for reasons.
  • Fan Nickname: Yami/Yugi Birch because of his voice. Also The Phantom as Tuxedo Sonic or Sonic mask, for the same reasons, Harry Potter for Clark.
  • Gotta Catch 'Em All: premise of the series, however Twitch implemented an extension where Pokemon will pop up during the screen, enabling the viewer to catch them.
  • Intermission: during their Friday-Saturday downtimes, they aired Thunderbolt Fantasy on 28/9, ALF on 29/9 (US-only). it also hosted part of their TV Classics' stream of [[Series/Andromeda]] from 5-6/10. whilst it's under hiatus, they'll be airing Bob Ross': The Joy of Painting from 29/10/2018 to 21/11/2018, with College Humor's Dropout block during 09/11-11/11.
  • Missing Episode: Movies 4 through 7 were not aired. as well as earlier episodes that features the Pokemon Jynx. also episodes were to air but were cancelled due to being Too Soon. strangely, they note Ash and Passimian! Friendly Touchdown!! as being one of the omissions, despite the stream not going up to Pokemon Sun And Moon. as a result, it can be pretty jarring to see Ash's companions, pokemon roster and voice changing.

    • This also counts all Pikachu movies that aired alongside their movies.
    • Averted for Pokemon Chronicles, Generations and Origins. which'll debut with all 18 episodes of the former, as well as the latter 4 from 27/11/2018.
  • Running Gag: Plenty.
    • Whenever Team Rocket reuses technology, disguises and schemes from previous episodes, the audience will scream afoul of it.
    • Whenever Victreebel is called out. the Chat will spam AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
    • Whenever an episode break occurs, clips from the current season plays, people will mass quote it, with emotes interspersed through it to avoid chat filters.
      • CATERPIE. THAT GIRL. I KNOW I KNOW. IM STUPID. DUPLICA. DONUT. NOT YOU PSYDUCK. PITY BADGE. (Season 1)
      • HOLD IT. HOW PREDICTABLE. THIS IS BORING. NOT MY SHOULDER. VERY SCARY-O. THIS IS BORING AGAIN. UNINTELLIGENT. ??????. WANNA SHARE MY BLANKET (Season 2)
      • IT'S HERACROSS. THIS LOOKS BAD. WINDS OF NEW BEGINNINGS. GLIGARMAN. LOOK, TOGEPI. RETURN EVERYBODY. IT'S SUPER EXPENSIVE. (Season 3)
      • THEM'S THE RULES. NYAA NYAA NYAA. LUDICOLO. PHANTOM. GULP GULP. ITS WING MUST BE INJURED. THEM'S THE RULES. NYAA NYAA NYAA. (Season 7)
      • FOOLISH CHILD. DODGE IT. WORLDS COLLIDE. LOST CLEFFA. UNHAPPY PSYDUCK. TIME FOR PLAN B. DODGE IT AGAIN. (Season 8)

    • Again, Team Rocket. whenever they appear, people will say the motto, regardless of changes depending on the episode.
    • Whenever anything particularly Tearjerking occurs, everyone will respond with Biblethump emotes, such as Ash taking both Mew's and Mewtwo's blasts, turning to stone as a result in Pokémon: The First Movie.
    • NEVER SEEN AGAIN, frequently used for Characters of the Day.
      • subverted with ACTUALLY SEEN AGAIN with characters like Duplica, though it was just for one episode.
    • MILLIONS DEAD/MILLIONS SAVED, whenever some collateral damage occurs (or been prevented) that realistically should have killed people.
  • We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties: During the 07/10 movie stream, Pokémon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior started off around close to the end *twice*, and again sometime before that, there was also strange audio issues affecting pokemon. it wound up being rescheduled to 12/10.
    • During the 08/10 stream, the Season 7 bumpers had audio from one of the previous seasons.
    • During 15/10, the initial stream of The Scuffle of Legends broke mid-stream, missing a few minutes of footage.
    • During the 22/10 stream, part of the season 9 bumpers had audio from season 8.
