Trivia

The rage attack that Charmander uses continues to be used until the battle is over. This is true in the game as well. Once it is selected you can not break the attack cycle until one of the Pokémon faints. See more »

Goofs

During their phone call in the first three minutes, Professor Oak tells Ash that Gary Oak has caught 30 Pokemon. In a previous episode (1.13 "Mystery at the Lighthouse"), Oak told Ash that Gary had already caught 45 Pokemon. See more »

Quotes

Brock: [about the hat] It's official.
Misty: I didn't know it wasn't an official Pokémon Leauge hat. I remembered I entered the same contest too.
Ash Ketchum: I had to send in about a million post cards to win that hat!
Misty: [Misty turns around embarrassed] No wonder I didn't win, I only sent in one.
Brock: Poor Ash, losing an official hat, is like losing your best friend.
