==Trivia==
* Bill being mixed with a Pokémon during a teleportation experiment seems tomay be a direct reference to the movie ''{{wp|The Fly}}'', where a scientist experimenting with teleportation pods ends up combined with a fly.
* In [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions|FireRed and LeafGreen]], if a player declines to go to the [[Sevii Islands]] after defeating [[Blaine]], Bill will wait in [[Cinnabar Island]]'s Pokémon Center. During this period, he iscan bothbe backfound both at his home on {{rt|25|Kanto}} and on Cinnabar Island at the same time.
* In the anime, Bill has green hair, and appears to be wearing formal clothing. In the games, his appearance differs greatly.
* Many rumors sprouted up during the time of Generation I where if the player could travel to the gap which appeared at the back of Bill's House, they would encounter Mew. This proved to be false and to stop further rumors, the gap was removed in the Generation III remakes.
* In Generation II and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, a fan of Bill's named Brent will reveal trivia about Bill via the [[Pokégear]]. The information shared include the fact that Bill's younger sister can't wink, Bill's first Pokémon caught was {{p|Abra}}, his mother used to be a [[Kimono Girl]], Bill is lactose intolerant (also claimed by Celio in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}), he isn't very good at Pokémon battles, and that Bill is attracted to the Goldenrod Flower Shop owner's daughter.
* In the English dub of the anime, his {{wp|Kansai dialect}} is portrayed as an {{wp|Regional accents of English|British English accent}}, while in the Pokémon Adventures manga, this becomes a southern American accent.
* The Pokémon Bill is mixed with is different in each canon: in Generation I he is mixed with an unknown Pokémon, in Generation III he is mixed with a {{p|Clefairy}}, in the Pokémon Adventures manga he is mixed with a {{p|Rattata}}, in the Pokémon Zensho manga he is mixed with a {{p|Nidoran♂}}, and in the anime he is trapped in a {{p|Kabuto}} costume.
