* In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, HM05 has the item sprite of a {{type2|Water}} HM, even though {{m|Defog}} is a {{type2|Flying}} move. It is possible that thisa isWater-type becauseHM Defog'swas HeartGoldconsidered andfor SoulSilverthe counterpart,position before Defog was finalized. {{m|Whirlpool}}, is a Water-type move itself, takes the spot in HeartGold and SoulSilver, though this is likely unrelated, as HeartGold and SoulSilver came out more than three years after Diamond and Pearl were released.
* HM05 is the only HM and only machine move so far that has changed moves within a generation, from Defog in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum to {{m|Whirlpool}} in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
* HM05 has contained the most different moves of any HM, teaching four different moves throughout the series. Due to its changing moves mid-generation as mentioned above, it is also the only machine that has contained four different moves (the maximum possible at present) that contained the same move for more than one generation.
** Interestingly, two of the moves it has contained are the two HM moves which first appeared as HMs in [[Generation II]].
