If you’ve played Pokemon, you know that each Pokemon is numbered in the Pokedex (the encyclopedia that has basic Pokemon information). Bulbasaur is 1, Ivysaur 2, Venusaur 3 etc.
Anyways, Pikachu’s number is 25:
And Meowth’s number is 52:
THE NUMBERS ARE REVERSE OF EACH OTHER. CAT AND MOUSE. FRIEND AND FOE.

Other facts of interest:
Kirby’s sprite was originally meant to be a placeholder.
All the maps of the Pokemon handheld games(no spin offs) are based on parts of Japan (with Diamond and Pearl’s Sinnoh region similarity to Hokkaido being the most obvious)
Pac-Man was originally going to be called Puck-Man, but there was worry that the arcade cabinets could be vandalized to have the title end up as something very vulgar.

The bushes in Super Mario Bros. were just recolored clouds.
Ekans backwards is snake.
Girafarig backwards is girafarig.
