* This is the first time since [[S01|season 1]] that Ash has caught three Pokémon in three consecutive episodes. Coincidentally, the aforementioned three consecutive catches were also the regional [[starter Pokémon]].

** This is also one of the very few times that Ash, or any main character, uses the Pokédex manually to find a Pokémon's information, rather than scanning it in the flesh.
* The female Trainer in this episode [[Anime character recycling|looked just like]] [[Alanna]] from ''[[AG039|A Poké-BLOCK Party!]]'', only with pink hair. Another Alanna lookalike appeared in ''[[DP175|Opposites Interact!]]''.
