- This marks the first time in the anime that:
- Type: Wild is used as an insert song when Gladion, Hau, and his classmates each use a Z-Move on one of the Shiny Guzzlord.
- Professor Kukui narrates the preview for the next episode.
- When Lucario is about to use Close Combat on one of the Shiny Guzzlord, one of its paws is briefly colored blue instead of black.
- In a similar error from another episode, when Lana performs her pose for Oceanic Operetta, there is a split-second shot where storyboard outlines can be seen on her right.
