Air date

Wait, did this episode air on January 1, 1999? That was... a Friday. Unless they didn't want to do one on December 31? Anyone know? TTEchidna 04:28, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Banned in South Korea???

Er, any reason why this episode is banned in South Korea? - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 17:45, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I don't see why it would've been banned in South Kotea. Any confirmation about this ban? 17:02, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it was banned for the same reasons all the other banned episodes in Korea were: because it depicted heavy Japanese themes, namely Jeanette Fishers outfit, and the way she made her entrance at the beginning of the match. TheFatPanda (talk) 17:29, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

James's Victreebel

Doesn't this mark the third appearance, not the second, of James's Victreebel? First in The Breeding Center Secret, next in All Fired Up (briefly, in an attempt to extinguish Meowth) , and then this episode? --Scottyghost 06:58, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I made sure this is true, then added it to the errors section. Nice catch! ;) HarmonytheRocketEeveon (talk) 22:55, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
