** Gary Oak's rivalry with Ash is much more subtle in the original as he doesn't really antagonize Ash beyond the typical "you're falling behind," and comes off as simply being arrogant. The dub [[AdaptionalJerkass amplifies]] Gary's {{Jerkass}} nature and made him into an outright bully, putting down Ash and directly calling him a loser.

** Delia Ketchum is a lot more strict with Ash in the original version. When she gives him his backpack and belongings, she weeps in tears because of how much trouble Ash put her through. The dub changed it to her just simply weeping over the fact that her son is leaving the nest to become a Pokémon trainer.
