* The prologue for this movie shows some of the main {{pkmn2|Legendary}} and [[Mythical Pokémon]] from the first five movies: {{OBP|Mewtwo|original series}}, {{p|Lugia}}, {{p|Entei}}, {{p|Celebi}}, {{p|Latios}}, and {{p|Latias}}. However, {{p|Mew}}, the [[Legendary birds]], and {{p|Suicune}} were absent.
* This is the first Pokémon movie to go directly to video for its American release.
* The ending song, ''[[Make a Wish]]'', is the first time that the English dub left the Japanese ending theme in. It was also combined with English lyrics performed by Cindy Mizelle.
** May's singing voice is also retained in the dub.
* This movie is referenced in Pokémon Colosseum by way of a Trainer named Rider Zalla who owns a Jirachi (the star), Flygon, Absol ([[wild Pokémon]] befriended during the movie), Kirlia, Mightyena, and a Dusclops (Pokémon belonging to [[Butler]]). She can be found as the 77th Trainer on Battle Mode's Single Battle on Mt. Battle.
* There were unusual changes made in several dubs for this movie and ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]'', leaving many fans intrigued by the reasons:
** In {{pmin|Latin America}}, both movies were dubbed in Argentina (the usual dubbing is located in Mexico), by an entirely different voice cast and were aired only in some local channels.
** The voice cast also changed completely in the {{pmin|the Netherlands|Dutch}} and {{pmin|Finland|Finnish}} dubs (in Finland, the same cast was also in the [[M05|fifth movie]]).
** In {{pmin|Spain}}, the two movies were not dubbed at all.
* This is the first movie in which a [[villainous team]] other than [[Team Rocket]] makes an appearance.
* This is the first movie to distribute Mythical Pokémon as event Pokémon rather than just feature them.
* Until ''[[M15|Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice]]'' nearly a decade later, this was the last Pokémon movie to air [[PK12|a Pikachu short]] alongside the filmmovie.
* This episode marks the {{pkmn|anime}} debut of the [[Repeat Ball|Repeat]] and [[Luxury Ball]]s.
