* When a Bronzong blinks or falls asleep in Gen V, its "eyes" turn white.
* [[PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond]]'s PokéPad entry describes a male Bronzong, despite Bronzong being genderless.
* Bronzong is the only Pokémon able to learn {{m|Rain Dance}} by leveling up that cannot learn any moves or have any Abilities that benefit from {{Weather|rain}}. This may be related to its Pokédex entries, several of which mention Bronzong's natural power to summon rain clouds. The move can still be useful to decrease the damage it takes from {{type|Fire}} moves.
