Character mistake: As Team Rocket discovers the cloning machine made by Mewtwo, they start naming the shadows of each Pokemon as they appear on the screen. As the first Pokemon appears on screen, they say "Alakazam" but it is actually an outline of "Scyther" who is a different type of Pokemon.

Trivia: In Japan, the main character (Ash) is known as Satoshi, while his main rival (Gary) is known as Shigeru. These Japanese names were taken from two game designers :- Satoshi Tajiri (original creator of Pokemon) and Shigeru Miyamoto (one of the head game designers at Nintendo Co. Ltd) who are in reality good friends, for it was Miyamoto who pushed Tajiri's ideas to Nintendo CEOs and got the Pokemon game franchise started.
