    Notes (4)

    • Who's That Pokémon: Farfetch'd

    • This episode was aired out of order in all countries, and technically takes place after "Princess vs. Princess".

    • According to some sources, the Farfetch'd trainer is named Keith. However, his name is unconfirmed in the episode. Because his dub name is unknown, this guide refers to him by his Japanese name.

    Allusions (2)

    • Title Pun: So Near, Yet So Far

    • In Japan there is a legend that if you are lost and starving in a forest, a duck with a leek will appear, and let you cook and eat it. This is why Farfetch'd carries a leek.
