* {{Expy}}: Accidentally Satoshi to [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash]]. They both have Pikachu, both have Charizard, and both have had Lapras. [[NamesTheSame They also have the same exact name in Japan]], often do not even beat gym leaders yet win, and when his hat is removed Satoshi looks exactly like Ash without his birthmarks. [[note]]This is because Satoshi and Ash are both based off of the main playable trainer in Gen I, later to be known as Red.[[/note]] Scenes even parallel to the anime at times. For example, Ash got a badge from Erika by helping her during a fire. Satoshi got a badge from her by helping her when his Charmeleon accidentally ''[[NiceJobBreakingItHero set her kimono on fire]]''.
