* The Pokémon {{Ash}} uses in the exam are the same species as those that {{TRT}} uses to battle him on an everyday basis: {{p|Arbok}}, {{p|Weezing}}, and {{p|Meowth}}. [[James]] does almost the same, in reverse: he gets a {{p|Pikachu}}, {{p|Ivysaur}}, and {{p|Charizard}} to use; it would have been an exact correlation had [[Ash's Bulbasaur]] not refused to evolve [[EP051|five episodes prior]].
* James receives a team similar to the one that {{SSB|Pokémon Trainer}} has in [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]], except with a Pikachu instead of a Squirtle.
* This episode was parodied a few times in the US commercial for Pokémon that is aired on [[Kids WB!]]..
* The theory test of this episode seems to be a reference to the questionnaire on the games' [[Cinnabar Gym]], which the player can use to bypass the Trainer battles up to [[Blaine]], the Gym Leader. In the anime, Blaine just happens to be the Gym Leader who {{Ash}} is supposed to challenge next. However, unlike in the games, passing the tests results in instant qualification to the [[Pokémon League]], bypassing the requirement of eight Gym Badges to enter.
* When Ash hands over his [[Poké BallsBall]]s to the Pokémon League entrance exam instructor, there are five. When the instructor closes his hand, there are six.
* When James hands over the exam form, he doesn't have a number pin. When he turns to look at [[Jessie]] in the next shot, however, he is shown wearing a number pin.
* When Meowth{{MTR}} scratches both Jessie and James, there are four lines of light. ButHowever, Jessie and James's faces have only three marks.
* In the English dub, the instructor shows an image of a {{p|Poliwrath}} and {{p|Poliwag}} but calls them {{p|Poliwhirl}} and Poliwag.
* The instructor says {{type|Electric}} moves do not work on {{t|Rock}} Pokémon, in reference to Pikachu's Thunderbolt failing to affect his {{p|Graveler}}. In reality, {{type|Electric}} moves don't work on {{t|Ground}} types, which Graveler is also, but have normal effectiveness on Rock types.
* In one scene where the gang talks to [[Nurse Joy]] and {{Todd}} takes pictures of Pokémon, there is a Trainer with a green-colored {{p|Weedle}}. Coincidentally, Weedle is green when {{Shiny}} in {{2v2|Gold|Silver}}, albeit a different shade.
* The computer's image of a {{p|Caterpie}} leaves a section of its body colored the purple on the screen.
* When Ash cheers for his victory over {{p|Jolteon}} with his Weezing, the number seven on his jacket dissapearsdisappears in one frame.
* When Ash is returning Arbok to its Poké Ball, the number seven seen on his jacket has vanished.
* After Ash answers the tail flame question, and the view reverts to the big screen, the picture on the screen shows a flame from Ponyta's mane, not tail, but before Ash is answering, it shows the correct flame.
* In the last scene, the Meowth that does not talk has scratching sounds similar to that of wiping a window.
* [[PokéRap]]: Day 1 (Version 2)
* The excuses Jessie and James gave Meowth to go take the test were different:
** Jessie in the Japanese version was going to attend a relative's wedding, while in the dub, it was a visit to an uncle's deathbed;
** James in the Japanese version was going to attend a relative's funeral, while in the dub, it was a dentist appointment.
* Similarly, Jessie's resume listing that acted as her motive for taking the test was also different:
** In the Japanese version, she had tea-maker, flower arranger, kimono fitter, Sommelier, beautician, and shoe fitter;
** In the dub, she had hostess, florist, costume designer, beautician, and style consultant;
* Two of the slides were different in the original Japanese version. The question of Vulpix evolving into Ninetales via use of the Fire Stone was concocted by the 4Kids staff. The original question was whether the saying, "a {{p|Ninetales}} live for 1000 years, a {{p|Wartortle}} live for 10,000 years" is correct or not. The Poliwag slide with Poliwrath on it originally had the correct Pokémon (Poliwhirl) next to Poliwag.
;Test 1<nowiki>:</nowiki> 2nd Question
PoliwagWrongEvolution.png‎|English version
* When going over the results scores, the dub has {{an|Misty}} stating what occupations each column represents, while originally she was originally silent during this time. This was presumably to compensate for removing the headers during localization.
* {{an|Brock}}'s photo request in the Japanese version specifically noted that it was a good time to photograph Nurse Joy due to her sweating.
* The Japanese version has Ash and his friends learning he prefers battling to taking tests, something that's not directly indicated in the dub.
* In the Japanese version, Todd mentions he had been blasted off alongside Team Rocket from Ash's Weezing's Explosion when bringing Team Rocket's Meowth to the instructor, thus explaining why he was covered with dirt and why he was separated from Ash and Co.. This was omitted from the dub.
