*This set completes the transition of all the {{TCG|Unown}} to card form, with the exception of Unown R. Like {{TCG ID|Wizards Promo|Unown J|38}}, Unown R was a Promotional card in Japan, but was not translated by Wizards. An English Unown R did not appear until {{TCG|EX Unseen Forces}}.
*{{TCG|Shining Pokémon}} once again featured in this set - 8 as opposed to 2 in {{TCG|Neo Revelation}}. Unlike their predecessors, these cards got a unique foil treatment; the backgrounds remained non-holographic while the Pokémon themselves were given a metallic look.
*Each of the shining Pokémon released in this set is of a different {{TCG|Elemental types|type}}s; the only one not represented is {{TCG|Water}}, which is represented by the two shining Pokémon released in the previous set.
*Neo Destiny was also the last set that [[Wizards of the Coast]] made that featured the {{TCG|1st Edition}} symbol. The use of the symbol was eliminated due to the fact that sometimes the 1st Edition run would be released after the unlimited run (thus defeating the purpose), and the secondary market wasn't affected by them any longer.
*No {{ct|Darkness}} Pokémon are released as {{TCG|Dark Pokémon}}. Pokémon that appear as dual-typed {{type2|Dark}} Pokémon in the games are given the TCG type corresponding to their other type as Dark Pokémon, with the examples of {{TCG ID|Neo Destiny|Dark Houndoom|7}}, a {{ct|Fire}}, and {{TCG ID|Neo Destiny|Dark Tyranitar|11}}, which is {{ct|Fighting}}, while single-type Dark Pokémon (at the time there was only {{p|Umbreon}}) do not feature as Dark Pokémon. This "rule" was later completely reversed in the EX series, where ''most'' Dark Pokémon are dual-typed with their normal type.
