Major events


Pokémon debuts





  • Jun's first appearance to Ash in this episode features the two literally running into each other. This is borrowed from Jun's game counterpart, Pearl.
  • Turtwig is replaced by Grotle in the opening.
  • As of this episode, Infernape is the only member of the Sinnoh starter families to not debut in the anime.
  • Interestingly, while Ash's Badge Case has all 8 places shaped ready for the badges he will eventually receive, Jun's badge case has at least one space different as he has a badge that is not present in the games, which shows that there are at least two types of Badge Cases.
  • Jazzlike music is used as a theme for Jun.
