- Adorkable: Lillil is a little plant bulb who sometimes mistakenly attacks her partner in a double battle. She also wears Nerd Glasses, which makes her even cuter.
- Alternate Character Interpretation: GMYC. Is he a naive Ascended Fanboy, an Extreme Doormat, a Horrible Judge of Character, somewhere in between, or just an amoral person?
- Anticlimax Boss: N and Ghetsis were defeated on the first try, without Reshiram.
- Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Viewing numbers had taken a noticeable drop in this run following the Monday Massacre, viewed as trolls gaining control over the run. Some have decided that there's no point in progressing if all their effort will be easily negated. Others, however, have stayed on, viewing the releases as part of the narrative involving Team Plasma and their intent to release all Pokemon. Ultimately, the game was completed.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: This isn't the last time A protagonist has been named Jimmy.
- It's the Same, So It Sucks: The starter was released early. Although it's common enough to happen, a lot of people were annoyed that it happened again, like in almost every single Twitch Plays game.
- Sidetracked by the Gold Saucer: Battle Subway (with Hilda) and Pokémon Musicals, The Mob's two favorite not-plot-important activities. It is thought that the latter was so much fun that Lord Cover and Lillil left GMYC's team to stay in the theater.
- That One Boss: 4 of the five individual trainers with the highest Wattson Ratings came from the unit-naming run: Elite 4 Drake, Elite 4 Glacia, Champion Wallace, and Wattson himself. (Yes, only four Elite Four members have more wins over a host than Wattson did.) The fifth, and coming in ahead of all of them except Drake? Caitlin, right here, who put up a 25-8 record against Jimmy C, easily one of the best among pre-champion Elite Four members.
