  • Old Gateau's name in both English and Japanese is a pun based on the location it is found. In English, the French word gateau ("cake") plays on Chateau. In Japanese, the Chateau's name is "Forest Manor" (Japanese: もりのようかん) while the Gateau's name is "Forest Yōkan" (Japanese: もりのヨウカン); the two terms are homophones and are pronounced as mori no yōkan.
  • According to the anime, the Old Gateau is also known as the Mirage Gateau.
  • In early appearances, the Antidote and Full Heal were depicted as a vaccine inside of a syringe-type device; this was later changed to being a "spray-type medicine" in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
  • All "local specialty" items introduced since Generation III — the Lava Cookie, Old Gateau, and Casteliacone — are variants of the Full Heal. The RageCandyBar, introduced in Generation II, is a variant of the Potion instead.
  • In Pokémon Adventures, Blue is healed with a Paralyze Heal, the first time a status ailment healing item besides local specialties is used on a human.
  • In the games, "Old Gateau" is pluralized in two different grammatically correct ways. When buying the Souvenir Set in Join Avenue, the description says "A set of two Old Gateaus. The cake heals all the status problems of one Pokémon." However, when purchased, or received from fans at Pokéstar Studios, the game says "You put away the Old Gateaux in the MEDICINE case."
