** Earlier episodes of the {{series|Best Wishes}} showed that the final slot in Ash's badge case was intended to hold the Legend Badge, implying that he was originally intended to challenge [[Drayden]] last, just like in {{game|Black and White|s}}, only for this to be changed with the development of the sequels.
* This is the first time [[Ash's Palpitoad]] has appeared on-screen since ''[[BW050|Dazzling the Nimbasa Gym!]]'', 34 episodes ago, when he previously fought in another Gym battle.
* This episode marks the first time Ash battles a Gym Leader prior to their debut in a game, with this two-part episode debuting just over a week prior to the release of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
* This is the last episode of Best Wishes season 1. The following episode starts "Best Wishes! Season 2" arc.
* Iris and Cilan's face paint used motifs of fire and lightning; possible references to {{p|Reshiram}} and {{p|Zekrom}}. In addition, Iris is assigned the motif of lightning - in the games, Iris is the Gym Leader faced in Pokémon White version, of which Zekrom is its mascot.
