  • During the animation of Oceanic Operetta, Primarina's body is reversed symmetrically, with its tail on the right side of its body instead of its left. This change is not apparent for any other Pokémon or Z-Move.
  • Despite its name and the fact that it is an upgraded version of Sparkling Aria, Oceanic Operetta is not a sound-based move.
