The Promise with Lugia! - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When Cassidy, Butch, and Dr. Namba are looking at the parent Lugia before Dr. Namba steps forward, Cassidy and Butch and Dr. Namba are one metre away from each other, but in the next shot, they are 0.3 metres away. Also, there is a blue control panel with nine keys, but in the next shot, it is a yellow control panel with eighteen keys. (00:02:03)

Season 5 generally

Continuity mistake: In the Japanese version of the intro, the first shot showing Ash and friends shows Ash's bag with the label green. However, the label is white instead outside of this intro. Also, the front of Ash's hat goes from white to black and back to white. Additionally, part of his right glove goes from green to skin colour. (00:00:19)

Suggested correction: It's because these episodes were aired out of order.

Show generally

Other mistake: During the Poke-rap when the Poliwrath name is said, the Pokemon shown is actually Poliwag. Also, when the Graveler name is said, the Pokemon shown is actually Geodude.

Dig Those Diglett - S1-E31

Character mistake: Brock states that the Diglett are plowing the ground and the Dugtrio are planting the trees, but the opposite is true (The Dugtrio are plowing, and the Diglett are planting).

The Ninja Poke-Showdown - S1-E32

Factual error: When Venonat uses Stun Spore, Ash tells Bulbasaur to use Whirlwind. Bulbasaur just blows the powder away with his mouth, but he doesn't use the Whirlwind attack. He can't learn Whirlwind in any of the games, and what Whirlwind is supposed to do is to blow the opposing Pokemon away. Ash could have just as easily told Bulbasaur to blow it away, but he instead chose to tell him to use a move that he can't possibly learn. The only Pokemon that can learn Whirlwind are either Flying types or Bug types; i.e., Pokemon with wings (with the exception of Makuhita and Hariyama, which weren't introduced until generation III, and did not exist at the time this episode aired). In The School of Hard Knocks (Season 1, Episode 9), a character mentions information regarding a Pokemon's levels, attacks, and information which is taken straight out of the game, so it's very clear that Bulbasaur should not be able to use Whirlwind. [This is a result of mistranslation. In the original, Japanese version Ash orders Bulbasaur to "blow it away." He didn't say Whirlwind. Still a mistake in the English version.]

Trivia: During the Pokerap that appears after some episodes, nearly all of the pokemon shown are the actual creatures, but the Zapdos that is shown is a machine from Pokemon Island.

Answer: There are a lot of fan theories around this, but the most comman theme is that Pikachu had another trainer before Prof. Oak, who gave him to Ash. Pikachu didn't appreciate being handed over.

Answer: Well he had just caught him in the wild. Didn't even catch him with a traditional poke ball but like tied him up with a rope. So I would imagine so, yes.

You would imagine yes what? What are you talking about).

Sorry, I misread the question. I thought you were asking "DOES" he dislike Ash, not Why. It's been a while since I've seen the full episode. But from what I recall, Pikachu was wild, and Ash caught him through unconventional means without a pokeball. Tying him up with rope and stuff. So that's a good reason for any animal to not like someone when forced into a captive state in such a way.

That doesn't answer my question.
