Major events



Pokémon debuts





  • The book describes the ghost girl as possessing blue eyes with "an eerie gleam in them". This may or may not be true, as the ghost girl's eyes, if she possesses any, were not actually visible or discernible in her appearances in the episode. It may be noteworthy that the description of the ghost girl's eyes is detailed at a behind-the-scenes point in the book, preceding to the anime scene of Conway being found to be following the ghost girl, so it may be possible that the ghost girl possesses blue eyes only in the "canonity" of that moment in the book specifically.


  • The book also describes the ghost girl as having bare feet; however, in the episode of which the book is based on, the ghost girl wore sandals. Since the wording was "bare feet" instead of "barefoot", however, this could merely mean she did not wear socks, etc., thus leaving her foot exposed, which it was in the sandal.
