110 bytes added, 3 January
** Ash does not catch all of his [[starter Pokémon]] consecutively (of the series in which he catches more than one).
** [[Nurse Joy]] and [[Officer Jenny]] are not distributed by city, with only one Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny per island instead.
** None of its {{pkmn|movie}}s (''[[M20|I Choose You!]]'', ''[[M21|The Power of Us]]'', and ''[[M22|Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution]]'') take place in the same timeline or region as that of the {{pkmn|anime}}, or introduce any Pokémon from a future [[generation]].
** Other main characters besides Ash, members of a [[villainous teams|villainous team]], and a [[Pokémon Professor]] participate as competitors in a regional {{pkmn|League Conference}}.
** Ash is the winner of a {{pkmn|League Conference}}.
** Every Pokémon introduced in the concurrent generation has made an appearance in the series they were introduced in the main series of the {{pkmn|anime}}.
** One of Ash's Pokémon evolves off -screen after being caught.
** All of Ash's Pokemon he had on hand besides Pikachu are left somewhere other than Professor Oak's Lab.
* Out of all the series, this has the most:
** He caught his first {{type|Steel}} Pokémon with his {{AP|Meltan}}.
** He caught his first [[Mythical Pokémon]], also his Meltan.
* Ash took longer to catch a full team of six Pokémon in this series than any other. He caught his sixth Pokémon when his previously released {{AP|Naganadel}}, then a {{p|Poipole}}, rejoined his team in ''[[SM141|Exhibition Unmasked!]]''.
* This is the last series to air in the {{wp|Heisei}} period, and the first series to air in the {{wp|Reiwa}} period.
