Brock's Forretress uses Explosion for the first time.
Ash captures a Taillow.
The handkerchief Ash wipes Taillow's mouth with is the same one Misty gave him in Gotta Catch Ya Later!.
Brock's has a new outfit, and it is similar to the one he wears in the FireRed and LeafGreen games.
After Ash mentions Brock's cooking, May pulls his hat over his eyes. When she does this, the white part of one of her eyes is tan like the rest of her face.
Team Rocket said they never ate lunch when they were blasting off, when in fact they did when they were spying on the Taillow.
May: Wait, Torchic I haven't told you what to do yet!
Brock: Hey, Ash. What's with her?
Ash: She just got Torchic and doesn't know how to use it yet.
(May's Torchic fails an attack)
May: Aaaah! Torchic, return! I've never been so embarrassed!
Brock: (cooking soup) Just about ready!! (He turns and sees Ash and May staring at the soup with starved expressions.) Guys, you're drooling on me!!
Brock: The soup's ready!
May: And I'm ready to eat it!
Max: Smells good...
May: Looks good...
Ash: And if I know Brock, it tastes good!
