The Pokémon series is noted for having multiple, distinctly different canons. They often will make references to one another.

Manga references

Pokémon Adventures references

To games
To anime
  • Red's French (Sacha), German (Ash), Korean (지우 Jiu) and Chinese (小智 Xiǎo Zhì) names are the same as Ash Ketchum's names in the same languages.
  • Misty's crush on Red is similar to the one the anime's version of the character has suspected to have on Ash.
  • Armored Mewtwo appears in The Fifth Chapter. However, the armor (called "M2 Bind" in this canon) was designed in order to restrain Mewtwo, rather than concentrate its power, though it could be argued that Giovanni's statement to Mewtwo was a lie.
  • Deoxys has an ability to duplicate itself, much like in the seventh movie. The duplicates look like those from anime.
  • Latias has a human form who looks a lot like the one from the fifth movie.
To TCG

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 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.
  • 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.
