* 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.
* During the {{m|Brick Break}} contest, only [[Brock's 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 [[{{ball|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.
* Hamilton's hair, eyes, eyebrows, and face shape were changed sometime after the character was first seen, and he no longer has sunglasses; his own Japanese name as well as Craig's were also changed. Contrary to popular belief, the changes to his appearance are not dub-exclusive changes, but changes made by the Japanese producers to avoid lawsuits from the makers of {{wp|Dokonjō Gaeru}}. As a result, several scenes needed to be completely reanimated and Yuriko Yamaguchi, [[Yōko Sōmi]] and Tetsu Inada (the respective voices of [[Nurse Joy]], [[Hamilton]] and [[Crasher Wake]]) had to re-record a few lines due to the name changes. Hamilton was meant to be a direct parody of the main character of the series, Hiroshi.
* This is the first episode in which two voice actors return to the series - [[David Brimmer]] and [[Jason Griffith]].
