* Instead of [[Professor Oak's Big Pokémon Encyclopedia]], the end of the episode featured a memorial to ''[[M08|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]'' called [[Pikachu the Movie Memorial]]. This is part of a countdown to ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''.
* [[Jessie's Wobbuffet]] doesn't appear in this episode.
* Details of this episode were
actually made known in [[K-Zone]], a children's magazine, before any official Japanese episode listing.
* This episode shows how James and Carnivine met and possibly explains why Carnivine is so affectionate.
* [[Pokémon Ondo]] and music from ''[[EP039|Pikachu's Goodbye]]'' are used as background music.
