* AccidentallyAccurate: Shockingly for this awful translation, it actually gets one thing right. It translates the surviving tower in Ecruteak City as the "Bell Tower", one of the two possible translations of the Japanese name (the other being "Tin Tower", as in the official Generation II translations) and the one that would be made official in ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]''. Of course, this is said in context of [[LargeHam Silver]] giving one of his famously hammy rants (including calling the player character a [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext "WEAK WORM"]]), so the translator clearly got this one right just by sheer luck.

* ShoutOut: [[BlindIdiotTranslation Intentional or not]], some lines of dialogue reference the memes, such as Sabrina saying "The Gole-Badges Are All Belong To You".
** Another unintentional one, but at the beginning of the game, it asks you if you are a BOY or a [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim GIR]]. This game probably would have been made around the time that WesternAnimation/InvaderZim was popular, too.

* StockPunishment: Sometimes when switching out Pokémon, the game will say "(Pokemon) HAVE A PILLORY." A pillory is pretty much the same things as stocks, implying that this might be happening to them. But it's [[TranslationTrainWreck this game]], so who knows?

* {{Pluralses}}: This happens on occasion due to the TranslationTrainWreck nature of the game and its many misspellings. Many of these likely stem from the fact that nouns are both singular and plural in Japanese, and they frequently are in Chinese as well. The most common mistake is referring to plural Pokemon as ELFS.

* Magitek: seems to be a thing in this world, considering that using your PokeGear requires you to "select the Holy Figure" and power plant seems to be running on jade stones.

** Portraying monks in Sprout Tower as war-mongering buddhists land somewhere between this and {{Truth in Television}}, since bands of overly-aggresive monks used to be a common thing in medieval Japan.

** Many of the especially nonsensical translations seemingly happened because they mixed up a lot of the names and descriptions. For example, there's a move called "EG-BOMB" but it isn't Egg Bomb, it's Sludge (Egg Bomb is WFING). Tackle is called PRIZE, which is likely the name they intended to use for Present. GOODROD is Max Ether, and 21 completely random items are ''all'' called POLE. One of the [=POLEs=] is the Good Rod... but Old Rod is CLOTHBAG and Super Rod is BAD ROD.

Cross Chop is SUNRIS, which is likely meant refer to Morning Sun; Morning Sun is TASTE, which is probably meant to be Lick; Lick is AGAIN, which could be any multi-hit move. There's a move called AURORA, but it's not Aurora Beam - it's Drill Peck. Tackle is called PRIZE, which is likely the name they intended to use for Present.
