*Similar to Hey You, Pikachu! and Pokémon Channel, this game features the anime voices rather than the game cries. Also, despite Porygon-Z will never make a anime appearance, it receives a voice in this game as well.
* This is the first spin-off game to feature genders. Interesting enough, several Pokémon have the same gender as their anime counterparts as seen on several dialogue strings and descriptions.
