Continuity mistake: In the early episodes of the Advanced Generation series, May is portrayed as being slightly taller than Ash. As the series moves on, May is consistently portrayed as being slightly shorter than him.

Trivia: During the Pokérap that appears after some episodes, nearly all of the Pokémon shown are the actual creatures, but Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Rhydon, Zapdos, and Kabutops that are shown are machines from Pokémon Island. Also, when Kabuto is shown, it isn't actually a Kabuto but Bill in Kabuto's costume.
