In the episode entitled "The Misty Mermaid," text on the outside of the Hanada Gym as well as the text on the poster advertising the Gym's underwater ballet get changed.

The original Japanese version is on the left, while the edited dub version is on the right.  Click on each image to view a larger version.

The paint edits start when our heroes arrive in Hanada City.

The text that says HANADA GYM in English letters gets changed to CERULEAN GYM.

The Japanese in the poster says Suichuu Baree Shoo (水中バレエショー), or "Underwater Ballet Show." At the bottom left are just random blobs but the bit on the right there says Hanada Jimu Tokusetsu Puuru (ハナダジム特 設プール), or "The Hanada Gym Special Pool."

The English version of the poster adds a bunch of extra text ("Exciting!" and "Fantastic!" can be seen over the Underwater Ballet text, and there's a bunch of new text in red at the bottom that's hard to make out) as well as two images of PokéBalls.

The same poster is located inside the Gym as well.

The shot used at the end of the episode is just recycled footage from earlier in the episode but, as you can see here, 4Kids actually re-edited the shot rather than recycle their previous edit. The CERULEAN text is a dead giveaway; in this shot you can see more of the L and E than you could in the previous one.

The back of what I assume is the gate leading up to the Gym says Mata kite ne (またきてね) HANADA GYM, or "Come back again! Hanada Gym." It gets its text removed, leaving the two Nyoromo on the sign there all by themselves.

Finally, the "Metamon" in "Metamon Coffee & Tea" gets erased. 4Kids should have replaced "Metamon" with "Ditto" here, but nope!
