* Despite the [[Sumo Conference|Pokémon Sumo Competition]]'s weight requirement of at least {{tt|80 kilograms|176.4 lbs}}, many of the competing Pokémon's listed species weights are below the requirement, such as {{p|Arbok}} (65 kg) and {{p|Nidoking}} (62 kg). This is most likely because each species of Pokémon can vary in weight in the anime, as opposed to the {{pkmn|games}}, where members of a species almost always weigh the same.
* The idea of Pokémon sumo wrestling would later be revisited in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} with the Ring Drop and Circle Push events of the [[Pokéathlon]] and in ''[[BW134|The Journalist from Another Region]]'' with the [[Pokémon Sumo Tournament]].
* Music from the ''[[M02|secondThe Power of movieOne]]'' can be heard in this episode.
* The [[King's Rock]] {{Ash}} acquires in this episode is later used in ''[[EP247|Outrageous Fortunes]]'' to evolve {{an|Misty}}'s {{p|Poliwhirl}} into a {{TP|Misty|Politoed}}.
* This episode was [[banned episodes|banned]] in {{pmin|South Korea}}, likely due to it being focused on sumo wrestling.
