* The ending of the episode is a direct callback to the ending of ''[[EP080|Friends to the End]]'', as Ash stands in the middle of the arena and has flashbacks of his journey while the sun rises over the league torch and the full [[Pokémon Theme|theme]] [[Be an Arrow!|song]] plays.
* The scene where Ash is staring at the sun rising is similar to the final scenes of [[Aim to Be a Pokémon Master]].
* Before showing Professor Oak's Pokémon Live Caster, this episode was followed by a trailer for the upcoming ''Episode {{an|N''}} saga.
* This episode is the first time where the final round battle is shown on screen.
* This is the first time a different animation for {{AP|Snivy}}'s {{m|Leaf Blade}} has been used.
* This episode begins the shortest gap between the original Japanese airing and the English dub airing, with 93 days. This beats the previous record of 99 days for ''[[DP052|Smells Like Team Spirit!]]''.
* This is the last episode in the ''[[List of Best Wishes series episodes#Best Wishes! Season 2''. The next episode starts off the ''|Best Wishes! Season 2: Episode {{an|N}}'']] arc.
* This episode marks the final appearances of {{an|Bianca}}, [[Stephan]], {{un|Cameron}}, and [[Virgil]].
