** The [[FeatheredFiend lead Spearow]] from the first episode (a Fearow here) gets a DefeatMeansFriendship in this version and actually proves to be more loyal to Ash than ''Pidgeotto''.



* CompositeCharacter: Ash's pre-redesign look is more influenced on Red from ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' than Ash of the anime.

Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfBuxom: Every female has massive bust sizes in the uncensored manga. Common ones are Jessie who has breasts bigger than her head and [[MsFanservice Misty]] who's breasts are big enough to [[{{Stripperiffic}} make the outfit go very revealing]].

* DistractedByTheSexy: Ash can get rather preoccupied with cute female trainers and [[Male Gaze it's shown that he loves looking at Misty's body in the uncensored version]]. Of course, with Brock, it goes without saying.

* AdaptationNameChange: Daisy Oak is renamed "May Oak" in the English translations.



* BelligerantSexualTension: Ash and Misty are constantly at each other's throats, a fact which [[ShipperOnDeck quite amuses Brock]].

** Confirming a popular piece of FridgeBrilliance for the main games, the Gym Leaders do in fact modulate their challenges to fit the Trainer's level. When Ash arrives at Cerulean Gym, Daisy asks if he's planning to compete at the Cascade (2nd) level.

** One chapter actually drew together elements from a half-dozen episodes all at once: Ash's Pikachu, a rebellious Squirtle, and a Charmander loyal to its long-lost trainer all go on a journey with Khangaskhan and Tommy the Khangaskhan Kid to find a rumored Pokémon preserve watched over by a farmgirl and a rough Bulbasaur; along the way they are joined by Team Rocket, having adventures involving Koga and Aya, a collection of persecuted Dugtrio, and the relics of a nation that extolled Meowth. All that. One chapter.
*** However, just to shake things up: the Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur all part ways with Pikachu; Charmander even ''returns to his trainer'' (who is [[AdaptationalHeroism not the same creep]] as his anime original). A later chapter shows that Ash has nonetheless managed to collect a ''[[InSpiteOfANail different]]'' set of Charizard, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And an Oddish]].
* AdaptationDyeJob: While hard to tell with most characters and the monochrome art, this is apparent in color art. Most obviously Misty has brown hair instead of red, and Ritchie has a completely different design (with blonde hair, even).

* AdaptationalHeroism: Sabrina when compared to her anime counterpart who, instead being of the [[IceQueen cold psychic]] who was too focused on her powers with a CreepyChild LiteralSplitPersonality, is a kind, warm-hearted {{miko}} [[spoiler:that wants to avenge the deaths of her Pokémon at the hands of a Haunter]].

* BattleCouple: [[OfficialCouple James and Jessie]], of TeamRocket!

** WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: One chapter in the third volume features Florinda and Potter from the anime Filler -- with a much more badass Potter. This version of Potter can leap a hundred feet into the air out of a lake and can do battle with Gyarados. He just happens to have a paralyzing fear of snakes.



* StationsOfTheCanon: Averted. It's an adaptation of the anime, sure, but there are notable deviations and reinterpretations.
