* This movie was released between [[EP256]] and [[EP257]] in Japan.
* This movie uses the exact same intro as ''[[M04|Celebi: The Voice of the Forest]]'' in the dub.
* ''Celebi: The Voice of the Forest'' was released internationally after this filmmovie was released in Japan.
* Like the previous movies, this one briefly displays {{p|Porygon}} at the beginning.
* This is the first movie not to feature a remixed version of the [[season]]'s theme song during the opening credits; instead, an extended version of [[Believe in Me]] with no new lyrics is played.
* This is the first movie to feature the permanent death of a Pokémon, in this case Latios.
* Misty refers to the [[Pokémon world]] as Earth during Latios's final sight sharing.
* Images of {{p|Mewtwo}}, {{p|Lugia}}, {{p|Entei}}, and {{p|Celebi}} are hidden in this movie, referencing Pokémon featured in the previous filmsmovies.
* ''Pokémon Heroes'' was the last Pokémon movie to receive a theatrical release outside Japan until ''[[M14|White—Victini and Zekrom]]'', nearly nine years later.
* This is the fourth [[Pokémon movie]] to air on {{DL|Pokémon in the United States|Toon Disney}}. The first three were ''[[M06|Jirachi: Wish Maker]]'', ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]'', and ''Celebi: The Voice of the Forest''.
* This is one of the first two Pokémon movies to be available on Blu-ray, in a two-pack with ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]'', in May 2011.
* Although the main series switched its animation process to {{wp|Computer animation|digital animation}} by this point, this filmmovie, along with the entirety of the {{series|Advanced Generation}} movies, were still made with {{wp|Traditional animation|inked-and-painted cels}}. This changed with the release of ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'' in 2007, which was the first movie to be completely made with digital animation.
* The covers of VHS and DVD releases of the movie refer to the movie as ''Pokémon Heroes: The Movie''.
* The events of this movie are potentially referenced in ''[[DP189|The Semi-Final Frontier!]]'', as in that episode, Ash immediately recognized Latios.
