* Instead of [[Professor Oak]]'s Pokémon lecture, the end of the episode featured a memorial to ''[[M08|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]''. This is part of a countdown to ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''.
* Details of this episode were actually made known in [[K-Zone]], a children's magazine, before any official Japanese episode listing.
*Instead of [[Professor Oak]]'s Pokémon lecture, the end of the episode featured a memorial to ''[[M08|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]''. This is part of a countdown to ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''.
* This episode shows how James and Carnivine met and possibly explains why Carnivine is so affectionate.
* ''[[Pokémon Ondo]]'' is used as background music.
* The background music from ''[[EP039|Pikachu's Goodbye]]'' is also used in this episode.
* The diamond and pearl on the crown are references to {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}.
* The segment where Brock fantasizes about marrying Nurse Joy and his Croagunk marrying hers echoes that of a similar fantasy he had in ''[[EP165|Hassle In The Castle]]'' where he dreamed of marrying [[Dr. Anna|a woman]] while his {{TP|Brock|Zubat|Crobat}} married her {{p|Zubat}}. Coincidentally, both Croagunk and Zubat (now Crobat) are Brock's only {{type2|Poison}}s and, after the fantasies, confirmed males.
* During the {{m|Brick Break}} contest, only [[Brock's {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}}]]'s hands glow white.
* The dub title refers to the phrase "the cream of the crop".
* James caught his {{TP|James|Carnivine}} in the [[Great Marsh]] (which makes sense, since it is the only known place to catch a {{p|Carnivine}} in [[Sinnoh]]), yet he keeps it in a regular [[Poké Ball]], rather than a [[Safari Ball]], though this may be because he officially captured it outside of the Marsh. A similar situation was made with Ash's Tauros where, despite their being captured in Safari Balls, they occasionally appear in Poké Balls.
