Revealing mistake: When Molly sits on the floor as she begins moving the tiles with Unown around, her onion skin effect appears intermittently. Also, the pile of the tiles and its container's position change. (00:04:38)

Factual error: In "Pikachu and Pichu," when Pikachu and the Pichu brothers come to the big play structure thing, there are a bunch of Pokemon around, including a red-and-white, ball-shaped Pokemon called Voltorb. The dubbers for the English version made a very noticeable error here: instead of Voltorb saying "Voltorb," (almost all Pokemon say parts of their names when they speak) it says "Electrode," which is the name of a similar-looking, but different Pokemon. The two are both red and white, but the difference is that Voltorb has eyes on the red part of its body, while Electrode has eyes on the white part of its body.

Continuity mistake: When Entei is running off with Deliah, Ash yells "Mom! Pikachu!", and then the cameraman notices Ash as he runs by. However, when Charizard is viewing the TV broadcast, Ash says the line as he is passing by the camera, not before.

Continuity mistake: During her battle with Ash, Lisa jumps over a patch of flowers and sends out her Girafarig. During this shot, the flowers are considerably higher than the fence that surrounds them. However, a few shots later, the flowers are seen again, but this time they seem to be lower than the same fence. (00:28:05)

Continuity mistake: When first showing the door of the room Molly is in from the outside, it is two metres long, but in the next shot, it is one metre long. Also, the highest point of the crystals there is one meter above the floor, but in the next shot, it is two metres above the floor. Additionally, the crystals are on the door, but in the next shot, they are not. (00:06:16)

Continuity mistake: When Spencer picks up Molly after he says, "And I'll miss you," Molly's right hand is next to his left arm, but in the next shot, it is not. (00:01:54)

Continuity mistake: When Spencer says, "Lots of people believe in them, even though they never see them," Molly's bed does not have a headboard, but in the next shot, it does. Also, Molly is looking straight, but in the next shot she is looking towards Spencer. (00:00:27)

Continuity mistake: When the computer turns on, it has five green dots, but in the next shot, it has four. Also, the first two books to the left of the green book are blue, but in the next shot, they are grey. (00:01:25)

Continuity mistake: When Molly says, "You're Entei!" the book on the bed is in the middle of it, but in the next shot, it is on the left side of it. (00:01:06)

Meowth: It looks like alphabet soup but without the soup.

Trivia: In the original Japanese trailer, most of the scenes were fully animated, yet not used in the final cut. Some of the shots were Ash standing on top of a crystal pillar, as the camera pans around him and he is searching for something, a bunch of random wild Pokémon running away from the crystallization, and a shot of Mewtwo standing at the entrance of a cave with lightning cracking behind it. Supposedly, the 3rd and 4th movies were to inter-connect, with Mewtwo being the one who connects them. Perhaps the anime producers decided to throw that away and instead advertise the then-new Pokémon Crystal game? After all, several elements from the game (the Unown, Suicune, Celebi) appeared in both movies.
