* This episode has the first [[Double Battle]] in the {{pkmn|anime}}Pokémon [[canon]], if some of the {{pkmn|battle}}s with [[Jessie]] and [[James]] are excluded from earlier in the {{pkmn|anime}}. However, it should be noted that this battle ends when either one of the {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s Pokémon [[Fainting|faints]] as opposed to future Double Battles when both Pokémon would need to be knocked out to earn the win.
* This is the first of two episodes that featured {{Tracey}} without his headband on.
* This is the first episode to have a [[Battle judge|referee]] in a [[Gym]] battle. Almost every Gym battle has a referee from this point on.
* Although [[James]] reveals that he had intended to teach his {{TP|James|Weezing}} {{m|Hyper Beam}}, he never does get around to actually teaching it.
* After [[Luana]] reveals her status as [[Gym Leader]] in the English dub, [[Jessie]] comments "I don't care if you're in the Orange Crew or the Grapefruit League", quite possibly a stealth reference to Major League Baseball's Spring Training league in Florida.
* This is the second episode in which {{Ash}} is mistaken for a woman's son, the first being ''[[EP027|Hypno's Naptime]]''.
