* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Giselle or really any of the major Pokemon Tech students from this episode could have been a nice reoccurring {{Foil}} to Ash and his friends, helping them both learn from each other and indirectly push each other to improve. A later episode [[Recap/PokemonS1E56TheUltimateTest even focuses on an examine people can take to get in the League as opposed to the traditional badge system]], allowing for the perfect opportunity to bring one of them back. Heck, Giselle is one of the few girls in the entire anime Ash shows any form of attraction to. However, since the anime at that point worked on a StrictlyFormula [[OneShotCharacter character of the week format]], no one from this episode has been seen in the anime since.

* HilariousInHindsight: This episode, one of the earliest in the entire anime, is based around the concept of a Trainers' School where the students who enroll in it, complete all it's courses, and graduate are allowed to compete in the Pokemon League Tournament, making the school an alternative to having to go on a badge collecting quest all over the region. Year later in the ''Sun & Moon'' series, Ash enrolls in Trainers' School and he and his classmates are ultimately allowed to compete in the Alola League. [[spoiler: And after six regions of badge collecting ended in failure at their respective League Tournaments, this is the League that Ash ended up winning.]] So ultimately, it's like Giselle and the other Pokemon Tech student's approach was VindicatedByHistory.
