Episode Goofs
Although it was left at Oak's Lab, Ash's Phanpy is nowhere to be found.

The running gag of Professor Oak trying to find a word that rhymes with Tauros in order to create a love poem for Delia exists only in the English dub, it is nowhere to be found in the original Japanese version.

The dub has Butch refer to Jessie and James as "Messy and Lames", which were names used in the Mad Magazine parody of the anime in the late 1990s.

The narrator's line at the end of the episode is different in the Japanese version, where he just says that all the Poké Balls have been returned, and the daily peace the Pokémon enjoyed before Butch and Cassidy's attack has returned to Pallet Town.

For some reason, the Magikarp Salesman in this episode was voiced differently than how he usually sounds in the main series. This is the only 4Kids dubbed episode where this has happened to the character in question.

When Butch's Hitomontop gets up to use its Rapid Spin attack, look at the Tauros behind it. It's mane is the same color as the fur on it's head, but it is supposed to be darker.

Cultural References
The bottles of food that Tracey is using to feed the Pokémon have symbols of various Energies from the Trading Card Game.

Title Pun: Showdown At The Ok Corral

Showdown At The Ok Corral refers to the famous 1881 gunfight which included Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday the same as to the episode Showdown at the Poké Corral.
