Trivia / Pokémon 3

  • The Danza: Lisa Ortiz as Lisa.
  • Executive Meddling: The movie's entire premise is a result of this.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • According to IMDb, Sean Connery turned down the role of Professor Hale in the English dub.
    • The DVD Commentary mentions that, seeing how upset fans got over the fourth-wall jokes in the previous film, they decided against anything that might suck them out of the fictional world, including celebrity voices.
    • An early script had an entirely different story addressing the question of "What happened to real animals in the Pokemon world" in the form of the discovery of a fossilized Tyrannosaurus rex. While the fossil is being studied, it comes to life and starts rampaging across the countryside eventually hitting Team Rocket base and bringing them into the mix.
  • Working Title: Prior to release, this movie was known both in Japanese and English (for some strange reason) as The Lord Of The Unknown Tower.
