[[Pokémon manga samplers ]] of [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]] were included with some of the original individual releases. The first sampler, included with ''I Choose You! Pikachu!'', was actually released before the first issue of the regular [[List of Electric Tale of Pikachu monthly issues|monthly issues]] of the manga, making it the first appearance of any [[Pokémon manga]] to English-speaking audiences.
* On retail websites, the second North American boxset image shows [[Jessie's Arbok]] right next to her. However, on all actual boxsets it is Ekans that appears.
