* This is the second time [[Animals in the Pokémon world|real animals]] are shown. Fish are seen behind the glass when Ash walks into the aquarium.
* During this episode, the [[Cerulean Gym]] initially offers Ash a {{Badge|Cascade}} without a fight. This is the first time the [[Cerulean Gym]] was shown surrendering a Badge without a fight, the second being when {{OBP|Jimmy|AG092}} challenges the Cerulean Gym in ''[[AG092|Judgment Day!]]''. Instead of a battle, his Badge was awarded by {{an|Daisy}} for cleaning the pool. The sisters imply situations like these were very common when the Gym was under their leadership in ''[[EP273|Gotta Catch Ya Later!]]''.
** This was the only Gym which had ever offered Ash a Badge without a fight until ''[[DP165|Flint Sparks the Fire!]]'', 624 episodes later.
* The book ''[[Splashdown in Cerulean City]]'' is partially based on this episode.
* This episode is tied for the shortest time ever between two episodes where Ash has obtained a Badge, having earned his previous Badge only two episodes earlier. The next time this happens is between ''[[EP024|Haunter versus Kadabra]]'' and ''[[EP026|Pokémon Scent-sation!]]''
