Who's That Pokémon?

Who's That Pokémon?: Carracosta


  • Professor Oak's Pokémon Live Caster: Vanillish
  • When Team Rocket attacks Ash and the group under a tree, Jessie has a communication device over her eye. After Ash and Ferris refuse to give up Tirtouga, Jessie says "Resistance is futile." Saying this line with a comm device over her eye is a reference to the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation.


  • Before Ash and his friends are in the cave confronting Team Rocket, there is a moment prior to when Jessie speaks that James moves his lips but does not say anything.
  • Right after Ferris and Ash get into Sierra's truck, Ferris's right hand is drawn backwards as he's holding Tirtouga just before Ash scans it with his Pokédex.
  • While Ferris is talking, his reflection can be seen in the car's windshield. During this time, his expression changes and he closes his eyelids slightly, however, this was not seen in his reflection. Also, the reflection was at the same angle as him despite the slope of the windshield.
  • The fruit Tirtouga is eating disappears after it yawns and the scene zooms out. The fruit reappears when Team Rocket zooms in on it.
  • During the battle with Team Rocket, which takes place inside the Twist Mountain caves, Team Rocket appear to suddenly be inside the Time Gate in one shot. They are back outside in the next one.
