Trivia
* This and [[SM042|the previous episode]] feature thirteen main characters, the most amount in the entire {{pkmn|anime}}.
* A new [[Mega Evolution]] effect is introduced in this episode.
** {{TP|Brock|Steelix}}'s [[Steelixite]] and {{TP|Misty|Gyarados}}'s [[Gyaradosite]] are only visible when {{an|Brock}} and {{an|Misty}} proceed to Mega Evolve their Pokémon.
** This episode marks the first time that one (or more) main characters use Mega Evolution in the anime.
* {{an|Brock}} uses [[Counter Shield]] in this episode, a tactic he learned from Ash during the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}.
* When Brock and {{an|Misty}} Mega Evolve their Pokémon, they perform poses similar to the ones their [[Brock|game]] [[Misty|counterparts]] make in {{game|Red and Blue|s}}.
** In addition, Brock taking his shirt off while doing this is another reference to Red and Blue, where his counterpart is also depicted without a shirt.

* [[Pokémon.com]] [http://web.archive.org/web/20171123194819/https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-news/ash-returns-to-where-it-all-started/ mistakenly stated] that the episode would debut in the United States on December 2, 2017, which was one week before the actual US debut.
* This is the season finale of ''[[S20|Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon]]''.
