* RelationshipVoiceActor: Surprisingly, there have been a lot of examples of Japanese voice actors from ''Anime/MyHeroAcademia'' that have also voiced characters in Pokémon, including Tsuyu Asui as Iris, Shoto Todoroki as Clemont, Tenya Iida as Kiawe, Kyoka Jiro as Lillie, Saiko Intelli as Mallow, and Yuga Aoyama as Molayne. And you know it’s both amusingly and ironically hilarious when you find out that two of the school’s heroes, All Might and Thirteen are voiced by the same seiyuus who voice Giovanni and Meowth.

* FranchiseZombie: The animé was intended to only last one season, with head writer Takeshi Shudo even planning a GrandFinale episode in which Ash would beat Lance and achieve his dream of being a Pokemon master, but the series was extended past that and continues to this very day, although it has had many ups and downs.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: "Electric Soldier Porygon" was permanently removed from the air and never given any sort of legal release due to the seizure incident it caused. Stories vary as to whether an English dub of this episode was ever made, but either way, it's gone for good. Also see BannedEpisode.

** How some Pokemon captures went down in later seasons usually gets this reaction. Turtwig's capture for example, was seen as an exact copy of how the Bulbasaur capture went about where both grass-starters were trying to protect Pokemon from humans. Not to mention the fire-Pokemon Ash has captured over the seasons all having [[TheWoobie rough backgrounds]].

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Creator/UnshoIshizuka, the voice actor for Professor Oak and the Narrator since the anime's debut in 1997, passed away in August 2018. In September 2018, it has since been announced that Professor Oak (along with Samson Oak) will be [[TheOtherDarrin recast]] with Kenyuu Horiuchi taking over the role. When Sophocles’s Charjabug, voiced by Ishizuka, evolved, Yuji Ueda took on the character, and Risa Shimizu took on Tapu Bulu.

** International versions of the TCG are often accused of having lower-quality cards than the Japanese. This has gotten quite obvious with the XY era sets; the Japanese ''regular'' holos have a glossy finish and retain their shiny borders, while their English counterparts still have their matte finish and yellow borders.
* BannedEpisode:
** [[Recap/PokemonS1E19TentacoolAndTentacruel "Tentacool and Tentacruel"]] features an enraged Tentacruel wreaking havoc on a large city in an act of revenge against construction crews destroying the Tentacool pod's reef, including destroying skyscrapers. This episode had been pulled from most television markets due to the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. The ban has since been lifted.
** [[Recap/PokemonS1E23TheTowerOfTerror "The Tower of Terror"]] was also temporarily banned following 9/11, but in this case it was due to the title. It has since been lifted.
** [[Recap/PokemonS1E35TheLegendOfDratini "The Legend of Dratini"]] was banned in the U.S. for it's use of firearms throughout the episode. Unlike other examples, the unairing of this episode ended up causing a major DubInducedPlotHole since this was the episode where Ash caught his 30 Tauros from the Safari Zone.
** [[Recap/PokemonS1E38ElectricSoldierPorygon "Electric Soldier Porygon"]] is the most well known one. It only aired once in Japan, but sequences involving continually strobing blue and red lights caused several Japanese viewers - both kids and adults - to experience terrible seizures, with more following after [[FromBadToWorse news programs showed clips of the exact scene that had caused the seizures]]. While it was removed from Japanese reruns for a period of time, the episode has never seen the light of day in American markets, nor anywhere else in the world, and likewise, has never seen any official commercial home video releases. Porygon and it's evolutions in turn were banned from ever appearing due to [[TheScapegoat being associated with the seizures simply for being the featured Pokemon of the episode]]. The incident caused the anime to go on hiatus for four months, and ultimately cancelled an episode that was intended to have been aired on New Year's Eve of 1997. To this day, TV Tokyo and the Pokémon Company International are legally barred from ever airing the episode or distributing the episode worldwide. 4Kids wasn't even allowed to air their dub of the episode, even though they edited the infamous seizure-inducing scene to make it safe.
** Episodes featuring Jynx were known for being banned due to {{Blackface}}, until the anime finally changed its face to purple in the ''Advanced Generation'' episode "Mean With Envy", due to the important plot.
** [=AG101=] was never aired due to a terrible earthquake striking Japan before the intended airdate. The episode featured Pokemon using the move Earthquake, which was also banned from the anime due to likely being too sensitive towards earthquake victims.
** The ''Best Wishes'' Team Rocket vs Team Plasma two-parter was left unaired following the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear breakdown. One scene depicted Castelia City getting destroyed, which would have been in bad taste to victims of the disaster. The episodes have been ExiledFromContinuity.
** [[Recap/PokemonS21E21SatoshiAndNagetukesaruTouchdownOfFriendship SM064]] was banned from airing in the US because Ash, at one point, dresses like a Passimian, a monkey Pokémon, which causes it to look like he’s wearing blackface.

** The UK broadcast has also bounced around a fair bit - the show originally launched on Sky One in 1999, and it aired all seasons up to ''Advanced Challenge''. Cartoon Network then took over, airing ''Advanced Battle'' through to ''Diamond & Pearl'', as well as repeating the older seasons on its sister channel Toonami (Later Cartoon Network TOO). The show then hopped once again to Jetix, which started with ''Diamond & Pearl: Battle Dimension'', and it continued to air when the channel was rebranded as Disney XD, but it was pushed into a graveyard/early morning slot by the time that the ''XY'' season started airing, eventually vanishing from the lineup. Pop MAX (A Sony-owned kids TV channel formally known as Kix! that shows cartoons that used to air on other networks alongside newer seasons of Power Rangers) started showing episodes from ''Black & White'' onwards since the start of 2018. On the terrestrial side of it all, it used to air on ITV's CITV kids block, but in its original run several episodes were awkwardly cut into two ten-minute segments. It aired on and off, originally only showing the first couple seasons and a small handful of ''Pokémon Advanced'' episodes. Around 2009/10, it started airing on the dedicated CITV free-to-air channel, where new episodes aired long in advance to those on satellite networks, with some episodes airing weeks ahead of their US broadcast. Whilst it focuses on showing the current season, they air older seasons from time to time, with ''Advanced'' getting a proper run back in 2015.

** The Japanese OST has not been officially distributed overseas post ''Best Wishes''. This is likely because of the change of music companies to Sony Music Japan, who is notorious for their tight hold on the properties they own.



** One notable example is that all four main casts have gone through an episode where the majority of the cast and/or their Pokémon get paralyzed with Stun Spore, and the unaffected cast must search for the only plant that can cure the ailment. This usually also leads to the focused Pokémon (always a Water-type) of that episode either joining the cast or learning a new skill and overcoming its own problem.[[note]]Black and White did both, even![[/note]]

** Creator/EricStuart, the dub voice of Brock, was initially accepting of his role; but he grew tired of how people would seldom acknowledge his other work and only talk to him about voicing Brock. This was seen as a significant decision of his to retire from anime voice acting to focus on his music career. To a lesser extent, Creator/VeronicaTaylor (Ash) and Creator/RachaelLillis (Misty) were also weary of how fans would bring up voicing Ash and Misty when they both had many other anime roles; they, however, at least seem pleased that people enjoy watching ''Pokémon''.

* IKnewIt: During the ''Diamond & Pearl'' saga, the hints were pretty obvious that Ash and Dawn were eventually going to trade their respective Aipom and Buizel. It was always really questionable why Dawn was the one that captured Buizel when she already had Piplup as her team's Water-type, and Buizel being battle-hungry while Aipom enjoyed Contests just seemed like a better fit if their trainers were swapped.
* {{Jossed}}: Many fans thought ''Sun & Moon'' was a ContinuityReboot, between how drastically it departed from the series formula and an art director's comments that ''Sun & Moon'' "is not a continuation of ''XY''". The ContinuityPorn of "Alola, Kanto!" puts this theory to rest.

* NoDubForYou: Inverted, as the series has never been officially released with Japanese audio and English subs. Most likely due to the fact that the licensor believes the TargetAudience wouldn't be interested in watching it in a language they don't understand, and likely not helped by Japanese home video releases being very incomplete, with a whopping ''four'' episodes of the ''Advanced Generation'' series getting a DVD release.
