* Had this episode aired, it would have marked the final appearance of [[Pierce]].
* Coincidentally, the [[XY024|24th episode of the XY series]] was also skipped. However, unlike this, it eventually aired.
* The depiction of [[Team Plasma]] in these episodes differs significantly from how they would be depicted from their official debut in ''[[BW112|Team Plasma's Pokémon Power Plot!]]'' and onward. While they still want to put Pokémon under mind control, the Team Plasma Grunts in these episodes state their desire is to liberate Pokémon from their Trainers and that they're doing this in service of "[[N (anime)|the hero.]]". This suggests a different story arc based on the first games of Generation V was planned for the first incarnations of Team Plasma to feature in but it got scrapped as of the release of the sequels, the anime using the second incarnation of Team Plasma instead.
* The scene with Liepard attacking a skyscraper with {{m|Hyper Beam}} with two Team Plasma Grunts alongside it on a helicopter is reused for the ''Best Wishes! Season 2: Episode N'' opening, ''[[Be an Arrow!#Opening animation: Version 2 (BW109 - BW122)|Be an Arrow! 2013]]'', although it is newly animated rather than taken directly from the episode. The differences is that [[Aldith]] and [[Barret]] are in the scene (who have their uniforms designs from {{2v2|Black|White|2}}) instead of one Team Plasma Grunt with the original {{2v2|Black|White}} uniform.
** In addition, the shot of Liepard firing Hyper Beam is later recycled for use in ''[[BW106|Strong Strategy Steals the Show!]]'' when [[Stephan]]'s Liepard uses the move during a battle against {{Ash}}.
