* When ''[[Pokémon: The Johto Journeys|The Johto Journeys]]'' went on a two month hiatus on [[Kids' WB!]] in 2001, this episode was promoted as a "lost episode." Even though it was classified as a lost episode, it was rerun four more times after its premiere. (October 19, 2001; December 10, 2001; July 9, 2002; June 3, 2008)
** This episode aired April 20, 2001 in Italy. Because of the "lost episode" incident, this is the longest distance between a European airdate and the correspondent American one with the European coming first: 113 days.
* This episode, along with ''[[EP018|Beauty and the Beach]]'' and ''[[EP157|The Fortune Hunters]]'', has never been released on VHS or DVD in the United States.
** Both the {{pmin|Portugal|European Portuguese}} and the {{pmin|Spain|European Spanish}} versions of this episode and ''[[EP157|The Fortune Hunters]]'' were released by Salvat, the company that distributes DVD versions of the episodes in the Iberian Peninsula. Both of these episodes were also included in the Australian [[Pokémon: The Johto Journeys|season 3]] box set.
* During this episode, it is mistakenly stated that {{type|Psychic}}s are strong against {{type|Ghost}}s, when, by Generation II (the time of this episode's airing), the reverse was true (though Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar were weak due to their {{t|Poison|secondary type}}). Similarly, in the Generation I episode ''[[EP022|Abra and the Psychic Showdown]]'', it is said that Ghost-types are strong against Psychic-types, although Psychic-types were actually immune to Ghost-type attacks at the time.
** Ghost- types that are immune to Psychic-type attacks were later introduced as actual Pokémon, in the form of {{p|Sableye}} and {{p|Spiritomb}}.
* The sign that the group encounters is based on the [[List of Trainer tips|trainer tips]] from the games.
* When Team Rocket is driving with their mecha, they chant, "We've [[gotta catch 'em all!]]"
