Show generally

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

Show generally

Other mistake: Larvitar's weight is 158.7lb, but Ash can carry it in his backpack.

The March of the Exeggutor Squad - S1-E41

Other mistake: The Pokemon Exeggcute is shown evolving in to an Exeggutor naturally. But the Pokemon Exeggcute can only evolve into an Exeggutor with the use of a leaf stone.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: In the Japanese version, there is a mention that something in these woods causes Exeggcute to evolve without using the Leaf Stone (when Exeggcute evolves, James even mentions that there is no stone). However, as this was skipped in the English version, it creates a plot hole.

Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village - S1-E10

Other mistake: In the scene when Team Rocket tries to steal the Pokemon, Bulbasaur saves Oddish. Ash comes to help push Bulbasaur, and for a few frames you can see 2 sets of hand prints cut out where Ash's hands go.


Wherefore Art Thou, Pokémon? - S2-E19

Other mistake: In the recap it says that Ash won a "big victory over Pokemon Master Prima", but it was actually a crushing defeat. (00:01:08)

Round One: Begin! - S1-E75

Other mistake: Krabby evolves into Kingler during the match, and is somehow able to use Hyper Beam. Krabby can't learn Hyper Beam, and Kingler can only learn it via a Technical Machine.


So Near, Yet So Farfetch'd - S1-E47

Continuity mistake: When Team Rocket takes off in the boat, it sinks. Their pokeballs float away, and Jessie says "Arbok and Lickitung are floating away!" But she doesn't catch Lickitung until Princess Versus Princess (Season 1, Episode 52).

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.
