  • This series of books has a notable similarity to the Where's Wally? series of books.
  • At least three real-life animals can be seen in the books: a dragonfly and a worm in Let's Find Pokémon!, and a fish on a dinner plate in Let's Find Pokémon! 3.
  • Viz Media's Viz Kids page (Archive) showing the Pokémon books on sale uses a slight variation to the cover art usually seen in releases for the first of the series. The cover shown on the site uses an illustration of Pikachu looking over his shoulder behind him sitting while the retail release of the book uses different artwork of him looking forward and standing.


  • In Let's Find Pokémon 3, two dialogues in story puzzle #2 are mixed up. These two dialogues are from scenes 4 and 9.
