A quality ROM hack. note 

Pokémon Clover is a ROM Hack of Pokémon Fire Red collaborated by the various anonymous members from the /vp/ board in 4chan. Pokémon Clover started out in 2014 as a simple ROMhack, before evolving into a overhauled game.

The game can be found here. The game's soundtrack can be found here. The composers for Pokémon Clover are Dimbus Maximus and Le Ruse Bird of SiIvaGunner fame.

Tropes specific to a key character should be in the Characters page.

Tropes present in Pokémon Clover

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Female memers have purplish-pink skin.
  • Anti-Frustration Features: You are given the option to auto-enable HM moves.
  • Black Comedy: It is a 4chan project after all. Getting five minutes into the game only to be offered a choice of a thingy with a plant sprouting out its anus, a used condom and a Muslim suicide bomber as your starter is all you need to know. The game actually opens on a proud disclaimer that it's going to be offensive as hell.
  • Chest Monster: Some of the item boxes in Mt. Moot and Rock Tunnel are Chompest in disguise.
  • Character Tiers: Discussed in-universe. In one of the houses in the Battle Channel, an NPC asks for the Pokémon tier list so that he can choose only those that are in OU.
  • Forced Tutorial: Inverted. The person who's supposed to teach you how to catch a Pokémon will tell you to look it up in the internet instead.
  • Advertisement:
  • Greedy Jew: The Merchant class. They don't give any Pokédollars when you beat them, they give you the TM for Thief, and they use Pokémon related to money, including the similarly-designed Chantruth.
  • Kaizo Trap: After clearing one of the more complex Victory Roads around, defeating the other PC rival one last time, you get ready to head for the League only to get assaulted right at the exit by "Fucking L. Jackson", who quotes Pulp Fiction before throwing at you a team of six Motherfucks with ridiculously high Speed and Explosion as their only move. If you didn't heal after the previous fight, have a Pokémon with Protect on your team, or simply enough HP to survive the onslaught (notably, this fight also disables your items and is even an Inverse Battle from Generation 6, meaning the Normal-type Explosion can hit everything with at least normal effectiveness) you'll have to go through the cave again. He was apparently added there just to screw over Nuzlocke players.
  • Lethally Stupid: Trainers can invoke this on their Pokémon knowing Shitpost, where the user uncontrollably spreads idiocy to deal heavy Ground-type damage for 3 turns.
  • No Fair Cheating: Cheat in the game, and after beating the champion, you will be arrested, just before you register your team in the Hall of Fame.
  • Non-Elemental: The ??? type is used as one of the elemental types which has neither weaknesses nor resistance; in addition to Curse being this type, Meme and An Attack are two ???-type moves unique to this game, and Adesign is the sole ???-type Pokémon.
  • Pressure Plate: Victory Road and Rotting Pit have puzzles that requires you to push boulders into switches.
  • Shout-Out:
    • With the game having a SiIvaGunner contributor, a great number of music in Pokémon Clover are RSE soundfont remixes of songs; the most notable one being the Gym Leader battle, a remix of Darude - Sandstorm.
    • A house in Vitlya City contains a nerd angrily ranting on how terrible this game is, he'd rather circumcise a rabid cat than to play this game.
  • Spin-Off:
    • Clovermon Hunter, a shooting game starring Edgie.
    • Balloofang Fight, a Balloofang-based hack on Balloon Fight.
  • Starter Mon:
    • As you start out in the Fochun region, you can choose between a Grass-type Grasshole, a Fire-type Arabomb and a Water-type Ejacasm.
    • In the Ebin region, the following set can be chosen by starting trainers instead: a Fighting-type Reptyke, a Rock-type Faeriock and a Flying-type Cloucat.
    • In Kekkoh, the starters are a Grass-type Sadrog, a Fire-type Hodtog and a Water-type Gnarrk.
  • Take That!: By the truckload. The villainous Team Karma is themed around Reddit and Know Your Meme, with the former also getting a mon parodying its mascot that is stated to never do anything except steal or copy other people's stuff. The Smoxilon line throws one at Smogon and their metagaming obsession, called toxic, predictable and mostly popular with children. The list goes on.
  • Torpedo Tits: With the user's milk used as ammunition, Lactose Shot is essentially this, somehow functioning like Margearna's Fleur Cannon.
  • Vulgar Humor: There are quite a few moves unique to Pokémon Clover that weaponize bodily taboos like Enema, Cum n' Go and Lactose Shot.

Tropes specific to Pokémon in this game

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: The strongest Armando leads its pack.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Muscledude will tear those apart who bothers it.
    • Mennopaws goes on a rampage if its see a pregnant woman. Justified, as she reminds her of her inability to lay eggs.
    • Chasumo starts a destructive outrage when someone mocks its face.
  • The Blank: The Galavik line has Poké Balls over where their faces should have been.
  • Character Tiers: Smoxilon has been described in-universe as an highly-used Pokémon. Not only its classification is the OU Pokémon, its level-up moves are made up of those popularly used.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Ebolable enjoying watching people getting infected with ebola by the water it contaminates.
  • Cute Monster Girl:
    • Lasslee and Wifemin, which strangely have a higher chance of being male than female, similarly to starters. This may be in reference to Primarina, another feminine-looking Pokemon that is usually male.
    • Chezetta and Mozzamazel are a combination of slime girls and pizza cheese. They are predominantly female, but have a chance of being male (ironically as high as Wifemin has of actually being female).
    • Legendary Pokémon Demiwaifu is appropriately a mashup of many female-looking Pokémon that are often sexualized by the fanbase. Unlike most Legendaries, it has a gender (100% female). (It also has some traits from Blaziken, because it's such a hot chick.)
  • Eldritch Abomination: Hanginy and Chancer are creepy, being bloody re-animated corpses of Happiny and Chansey, but they're ultimately just that. Their final evolution Unjoy, on the other hand, is supposed to be the decapitated head of Nurse Joy but mostly appears as an otherworldy mass of glitchy pixels that looks like it's staring at you even when you're behind it.
  • Gender Bender:
    • Due to the different gender ratios, the majority of female Flowre would inevitably evolve into male Florious.
    • For the same reason above, female Inbitween will evolve into male Geigh, while male Inbitween will evolve into female Dragking.
    • When Slughug evolves into Slugfugg, its gender changes from female to male. Shockingly, this is somewhat of a case of Truth in Television and Genius Bonus - snails in Real Life are sequential hermaphrodites, which means they can change their gender as they please.
  • Glass Cannon: The Glassshot and Glassannon, its evolution, are literal examples.
  • Goddamned Bats: The purpose of the creation of Motherfuck, a hybrid of Tentacool, Graveler, and Golbat, in-universe.
  • Godwin's Law: Toxiraptor was apparently hunted to extinction for being worse than Hitler, even though its meat is poisonous.
  • Groin Attack: Legends has it that if you don't talk about it with 9001 friends, Jewipede will eat your dick.
  • Greedy Jew:
    • Chantruth, incidentally used by the Merchant class.
    • Jewipede, learns Swindle and Pay Day by levelup, Thief and Snatch by TM, and uses a tricky-feel motif when encountered. Hmmm...
  • It Amused Me: Hofucno and Motherfuck love torturing people and Pokémon alike, and they find great joy in doing so, although they faint in the process, which doesn't bother them.
  • Jerkass: After scarring people who see it hanged on the tree at night, Hanginy follows them until they cry.
  • The Juggernaut: Once Tripecs start rolling, it becomes an unstoppable force—it will punch through everything that's in its way.
  • Kid-Appeal Character:
    • Pikotton was created to be sold to children as a pet.
    • According to its Flavor Dex, Smoxilon is very popoular with kids.
  • Large and in Charge: In addition to being the strongest, the leader of Armando also tend to be the largest.
  • Magikarp Power: Clovour. You can use a Leaf Stone on it to evolve it into Chanolour, which is easily more than decent with high Attack and Speed, decent defenses and an amazing defensive typing of Grass/Steel. Or you could keep training it normally, until at level 60 (!) it finally evolves into Kuuroba, which has an arguably worse typing and stats that would leave it a Master of None... if it didn't have Huge Power, which more than doubles its already decent Attack to monstrous proportions. Unlike Chanolour, it doesn't learn Swords Dance, but it arguably doesn't need it.
    • Iplora as well. It starts as a terribly slow mon (with Truant as its ability) based on Internet Explorer. When it evolves (with an Upgrade), it becomes Chromox, based on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Chromox has incredible speed and its ability is Speed Boost.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters:
    • Pikotton is a crossbreed between a Pikachu and a Swirlix.
    • Motherfuck is a combination of Graveler, Golbat and Tentacool.
    • Demiwaifu uses elements from Gardevoir, Meloetta, Lopunny, Roserade, Mawile, Lilligant, Diancie, Florges, Misdreavus, and Blaziken into its design, and it's worshiped as the goddess of beauty as the result.
    • Hofucno is a fusion of Wingull, Horsea, Tentacool and trumpets.
  • Mythology Gag: Several Pokémon are jokes around details of the main games. Among the silliest are Elephas, an Hinduism-themed elephant based on Fire Red/Leaf Green's Dex and its weird fixation on using "knocking out an Indian elephant" as a measure of power, or Krokling, who is designed to look like a certain sprite from Red and Blue.
  • Nipple and Dimed:
    • Averted with Mennopaws, whose drooping breasts are detailed.
    • Also averted with the Tittai family, who have detailed nipples on top of their heads.
  • Overly Long Name: Futabafont's Japanese name is many times over what character limit a Pokémon's name should have, and that's without converting the kanji into katakana.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Notridley. No, that's not Ridley. He's clearly got a mustache!
  • Personality Powers: Toxiraptor got its secondary typing by having such a toxic personality.
  • Pokémon Speak: Some Pokémon's cry are made up of them saying their names, such as Pengas.
  • Poor, Predictable Rock: Although Smoxilon is powerful, it is easy to predict.
  • Rated M for Manly: Kuuroba's dex entry emphasized its exaggerated masculinity.
  • Slime Girl: Chezetta is a girl-on-a-pizza slimy due to being cheesy. Mozzamazel is this times two.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Notridley may look mindless, but he is intelligent.
  • Sore Loser: Smogaroben cries for days when it loses.
  • Stealth Pun: Vandash is based on a black person, and can learn learn all the HM moves. In other words, it's an HM Slave.
    • Fishnism is a feminist fish. Feminists are known for being triggered. So Fishnism is a triggerfish.
  • Talking Animal: Some of the Pokémon have recorded dialogues as part of their cries.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Sapleaf love to sunbathe in open fields. In fact, they love it so much they ignore elders' warnings about sunbathing too long, making them become Ignut, a Pokémon who is forever being burnt alive. They then evolve further into Phantash, the ones who tried to warn Sapleaf about excessive sunbathing, which gets ignored, and the painful cycle begins anew...
  • [Trope Name]: Adesign is perhaps the most generic Pokémon design ever created. It's literally a white square with "A DESIGN :^)" written on it. Its type is ???, as is its signature move "An Attack." Its Pokédex entry reads, "This is a design."
  • Worth It: Motherfuck enjoys annoying others even when it would faint in the process.
