From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
* This is the first episode in the dub where the
first section of an episode starts followed by the opening theme, and the title card comes right after it. The original Japanese version wouldn't have a cold opening until [[ AG146]] , 262 episodes later.
Because of the above edit, a final commercial eyecatch was introduced in place of the music video segment. This split is placed between the scene where Ash chooses Pikachu to battle Whitney's Miltank and him commanding it to use Thunderbolt. However, a one-second scene of Pikachu running towards the battlefield was cut.
* The dub introduces a new title card, replacing the original one used in the first three seasons. However, the original title card remained in use until [[EP191]].
* A 33-second scene of Team Rocket "admiring" 2 young kids carrying a Clefairy doll while they're selling food inside the [[Goldenrod Tunnel#In the anime|Underground Path]] was cut in the dub. Because of this edit, the scene where James first spotted Whitney's Clefairy and pointing it to the right was also cut. As an alternative, the scene of him holding a chicken drumstick and looking towards the left before the above cut was flipped, to make it look like he spotted Clefairy immediately.
