Errors

Dub edits

  • The flashback about the good times Misty spent with her friends is different in both versions: the dubbed English flashback focuses on Misty's relationship with Ash, while the original Japanese flashback focuses on Misty's accomplishments as a Pokémon trainer and as a friend, and even ends with a group shot of Ash, Pikachu, Misty, Togepi, Brock, and Tracey (specifically created for this episode). The original flashback plays a really dramatic piece of music, while the dub flashback plays a brand new vocal song:
Goodbye, funny how that's such a hard thing to say.
Now it's time to let go but...never thought I'd feel this way.
Promised not to be sad but...we both knew I was lying.
Gotta fight back the tears cause can't let you see me crying
You're more than just my best friend
What makes me misty most of all,
In our final curtain call,
Is knowing that I won't see you again.
