* DevelopmentHell: While the series itself didn't suffer this, FanSub efforts are another matter entirely: ''[=YPC5=]'' seems to somehow repel attempts at translation. The first season, which ran from February 2007 to January 2008, was finally fully translated in ''October 2012'', and even then only as a hodgepodge of several distinct translation efforts. The second season, which ran from February 2008 to January 2009, remains unfinished as of June 2013. Fortunately there are only four episodes unsubbed thanks to the work of two separate translation groups, with one of them subbing the series ''backwards'' so that the whole series can be subbed faster. And as of December 2013... it's ''finally subbed fully''

* PortmanteauSeriesNickname: Though it was common before, this series, particularly with its caption-less logo, made it look quite likely that both "Pretty Cure" and "Precure" are canon, both for the name of the series and for the name of the group. Later seasons of ''Pretty Cure'' actually use "Precure" in the English caption.
