In the anime
** Hamilton's appearance and even the Japanese names of both himself and Craig were changed shortly after the episode's initial airing in Japan, possibly to avoid a lawsuit from the producers of Dokonjō Gaeru.
* In ''[[DP077|Staging a Heroes' Welcome!]]'', two girls near the beginning look like {{wp|Sakura Kinomoto}} and {{wp|Tomoyo Daidōji}} from {{wp|Cardcaptor Sakura}}. This is most likely a joke on how their hats resemble the one [[Wallace]] wears.
* In the {{pmin|Brazil|Brazilian dub}} of ''[[DP115|Stealing the Conversation!]]'', {{p|Chatot}} calls Jessie "{{wp|Lassie}}." When Jessie tries to correct it, Chatot says "''Lassie ran away.''"
* In ''[[DP133|Uncrushing Defeat!]]'', before the group attack, the way Ash and his Sinnoh team ({{TP|Ash|Pikachu}}, {{TP|Ash|Staraptor}}, {{TP|Ash|Grotle}}, {{TP|Ash|Monferno}}, {{TP|Ash|Buizel}} and {{TP|Ash|Gliscor}}) pose, strongly resembles the {{wp|Super Sentai}} pose.
* The plot of ''[[BW022|A Venipede Stampede!]]'' references the story of the {{wp|Pied Piper of Hamelin}} when [[Burgh]] uses his bug flute to lead the {{p|Venipede}} out the city at the request of [[Mayor of Castelia City|the mayor]].
