Bonuses

Mini-comic sampler cover
Lenticular Pikachu card included with the Water Blast! video

Various manga samplers of The Electric Tale of Pikachu were included with some of the original individual releases. The first sampler, included with I Choose You! Pikachu!, was actually released before the first issue of the regular monthly issues of the manga, making it the first appearance of any Pokémon manga to English-speaking audiences.

Some videos also had lenticular trading cards included.

  • On retail websites, the second North American boxset image shows Jessie's Arbok right next to her. However, on all actual boxsets it is Ekans that appears.
