Golbat's "Mega Drain" and Exeggutor's "Egg Bomb"
After learning of the Protect/Harden mistake made with Ash's Snorlax, something occurred to me. Mandi orders a Mega Drain attack, yet when executed, it seems to involve Golbat swooping down on the opponent and biting it, something that to me seems more suited for an attack like Leech Life. Seeing as no other instance of Mega Drain in the anime looked even remotely like this, is it not a possibility that this Mega Drain was in fact Leech Life, albeit incorrectly labeled? To add to that, I'm inclined to believe that Exeggutor's Egg Bomb is actually Barrage, and therefore the victim of a similar error. I don't know if it's just me, but those things did not look like eggs, not to mention it looked nothing like Rudy's Exeggutor's Egg Bomb, as seen in an episode not very far away from this one. In fact, at one point, the announcer refers to Exeggutor's attack as Barrage.
Unfortunately, I don't have the means to view the Japanese version of this episode, and so I can't verify if the attacks were labeled the same in the original, nor if the announcer's Barrage error was present there. - unsigned comment from Missingno.

- Sorry to be bumping this discussion, but I really would appreciate it if someone could see if the same attacks were ordered in the original, and maybe if, if they were the same in the original, these instances might qualify as similar circumstances to the Protect/Harden goof. - unsigned comment from Missingno.
