* The instrumental version of 小さきもの ''[[A Small Thing]]'' from ''[[M06|Jirachi: Wish Maker]]'' was used as background music.
* [[Ash's Aipom]] remains outside of her [[Poké Ball]] throughout this episode.
* In one scene, one of the Weavile's ear feathers is blue instead of the usual red.
* Ash's Aipom takes damage from Weavile's Shadow Ball even though Ghost-type moves do not affect Normal-type Pokémon. This is an example of [[anime physics]].
