The Electric Tale of Pikachu references

To games
  • Gary's sister's existence (in the anime he was never revealed to have one).
  • May gives Ash a town map, much like her game counterpart does to Red.
  • TMs (which come from games and have never appeared in the anime) are shown in this manga.
To anime
  • This series is loosely based off the anime.

Pokémon Zensho references

To games
  • This manga is the most direct adaptation of Generation I games. It shows some events from games, which were omitted in other canons (e.g. Brock having a Camper as an apprentice, S.S. Anne's captain's sea sickness, the hunt for the Safari Zone Warden's dentures).
  • The main characters' names are Satoshi and Shigeru, rather than Red and Green, however it's likely that these names are directly taken from optional names of the game characters, rather than the anime.
  • When Brock's apprentice mentions the Elite Four, they appear as shadows in the same poses they had in their Generation I sprites.
To anime
  • Satoshi without his hat looks a lot like Ash.
  • Satoshi has a Pikachu, it however doesn't seem to be an intended reference, as this one wasn't Satoshi's starter and it eventually evolved.
  • The Cerulean Gym building has a picture of Dewgong on the outside wall.
  • Satoshi gets the Rainbow Badge from Erika, rather than winning it in the battle.
  • Satoshi has a Lapras. However, as the manga was released before the start of Orange Islands saga of anime, it's likely a coincidence.
