** In development, the game was called "Capsule Monsters" and there was a number of creatures designed that never made it in any generation; the Gold/Silver demo also had different starters than what we ended up with. (These designs are discussed and guesses are made as to what they may have become [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s48mUgrEQIA here]].) The unused fire starter started an early UrbanLegendOZelda about "Pikaflare".

* AdaptationOverdosed: The [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]], various {{spinoff}} games, [[VideoGameRemake remakes of certain main games]], multiple book series, a trading card game, a set of marbles, two handheld game consoles, and currently '''39''' [[{{Manga/Pokemon}} manga]] (but most people act like only [[Manga/PokemonAdventures one exists]]). The spinoff games include dungeon crawlers, a rail shooter, a {{slice of life}} simulator, ''Tetris Attack'' clones, pinball, mobile puzzle games, an augmented reality game and even a visual novel.

** The Alolan form of Sandslash has been associated with VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog due to physical similarities. However, once Alolan Sandslash's Ice/Steel typing was revealed, they quickly shifted to calling him Coldsteel (named after an infamously memetic Sonic fan OC)

* AdaptationExpansion
** In the anime, battles can be even more nuanced than the mechanics of the game allow for. For example, in an episode of ''Pokémon XY'', Ash's Pikachu uses his hearing to overcome being blinded by Inkay. Although the game has several in-battle impairments such as temporary paralysis, confusion, or poisoning, blindness is not one of those temporary impairments.
** In the anime for ''Pokémon Sun and Moon'', several other species can be used as Ride Pokémon besides the ones available in the games. Wailmer has been used in lieu of Lapras and Sharpedo for riding on the water, and Pelipper has been used in lieu of Charizard for flight.

* Longtime fans may remember back in Generation I when bogus rumors were flying about the infantile internet speculating on a possible secret/glitch that would allow you to catch the most elusive of all Pokémon: Mew (No.151). Surprise surprise, there really IS a secret glitch that allows you to catch a Mew! For real this time! Now the bad news: you will probably have to restart your game in order to pull this off, since the easiest method for getting Mew requires you to have not battled a certain trainer on the route north of Cerulean City. Mew is actually only a small part of a game-breaking glitch which can be activated as soon as you have Teleport/Fly and meet a trainer who will try to battle you as soon as he appears on-screen (near Lavender/Saffron). Fly away before he battles you, but after the "!" appears over his head, and you will soon find yourself battling strange glitch Lv.7 Pokémon determined by the Special stat of the last Pokémon you fought.
