* 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}}, at the Pokémon Center in [[Snowpoint City]] before beating Candice, and at the [[Battleground]].
* Maylene's Japanese name is shared with that of one of the [[Kimono Girl]]s of [[Ecruteak City]]. Though that Kimono Girl's name was changed to ''Komomo'' in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, possibly not to conflict with Maylene's Japanese name.
* Maylene is one of the youngest Gym Leaders in Sinnoh. However, the youngest [[Gym Leaders]] in the Pokémon world seem to hail from [[Hoenn]], being the twins from [[Mossdeep City]], [[Tate and Liza]].
* 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-up. Had {{Ash}} fought [[Fantina]] previous to Maylene, he would have inadvertently gone out of order compared to the Diamond and Pearl line-up, but in order for the Platinum line-up. Ash battled the three shifted Gym Leaders in the order designated by Diamond and Pearl, as Platinum was not released until after Ash fought [[Crasher Wake]], but before Fantina.
