The rock that the Clefairy throws in this strip is a moonstone.
It's shown that Pokemon can resist evolution, and some Pokemon can't even evolve under normal (if any) circumstances. This works well for several reasons: Red contrasts Blue and Green, Ash was originally going to have a Clefairy (and Pikachu has come into physical contact with at least one Thunderstone but refused to evolve), Clefairy have a 1-in-20 chance of holding a Moon Stone in the wild, and it would be funny (especially considering the way Red "found" the Moon Stone [getting clocked in the head with it] would fit well with the way Red "found" the Clefairy).

Red and Green will eventually battle.
Of course, Green, being the little cheater that she is, will have pumped up her entire party full of Rare Candies, which will put all of her Pokemon at a higher level than that of Red's Pokemon. Despite this, Red's Pokemon will still be stronger, even if they're at a lower level, because Green's Pokemon's stats would have no EVs to speak of. Green then begins to understand the importance of hard work, and undergoes some Character Development as a result, ending up being a better trainer for it.

Red and Green will never meet each other.
Akin to the remakes, chosing one character will make the other one non-exsitent on the game itself.So in the comic they will never cross paths to lampshade this.

The evil Pikachu will cross paths with Red and "join him" like ash's Pikachu.
Resulting in a Team Rocket situation between Red and Officer Jenny. Possibly resulting in Pikachu getting a
Heel–Face Turn.
  • Jossed. Green catches it.

There will be a Slowpoke joke on Yamauchi's passing.

How well does it match the trope?
