Trivia
* Maylene is the only Sinnoh Gym Leader in {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}} to not appear outside her Gym at least once in the game. She makes several appearances outside of her Gym in {{game|Platinum}}, however, when the player reaches {{rt|217|Sinnoh}}, at the Pokémon Center in [[Snowpoint City]] before beating Candice, and at the [[Battleground]].
** She also appears in Celadon City in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}.
* Maylene's Japanese name is shared with that of one of the [[Kimono Girl]]s of [[Ecruteak City]]. That Kimono Girl's name was changed to ''Komomo'' in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, possibly not to conflictavoid it conflicting with Maylene's Japanese name, as Maylene herself appears in those games.
* With the release of Pokémon Platinum, the order of three Gym battles in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl are now shifted: instead of being third, Maylene is now fourth in the line-uplineup.
* SheMaylene is also the only Gym Leader in Sinnoh to have more Pokémon of the opposite gender than of the same gender as her; in the Veilstone Gym, two out of her three Pokémon are male, while at the Battleground, three out of five are.
* Of all of the Trainers that can be fought at the [[Battleground]], Maylene has the strongest Pokémon of any of them. Her Lucario, at level 66, is one level stronger than the rest of the Trainers' strongest Pokémon, as all of the rest are at Lv. 65.
** However, Maylene compensates for this, since her strongest Pokémon doesn't hold a [[Sitrus Berry]] unlike the other trainers at the Battleground.
* In {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, her {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} are the same levels that Pastoria Gym Leader [[Crasher Wake]]'s Pokémon are.
** This is most likely due to the fact that the player can choose to visit Veilstone or Pastoria simultaneously without affecting the progression of the storyline, meaning Wake and Maylene could be battled in either order.
