* The Japanese title of this episode is a reference to the series ''{{wp|Dash! Yonkuro}}''. When cheering {{TP|Sophocles|Charjabug}} on as it crossed the finish line, the faces that {{Ash}}, {{an|Sophocles}}, and {{an|Kiawe}} made referenced some of its main characters (Sophocles as Dankuro Toda, Ash as Yonkuro Hinomaru, and Kiawe as Shinkuro Minami).
* The disguises which [[Jessie]] and [[James]] wear in this episode are a reference to the series ''{{wp|Bakusō Kyōdai Let's & Go!!}}'', with Jessie's outfit based on the character of Retsu Seiba, and James's outfit based on Gō Seiba.
* The contraption that Kiawe wears on his body during the montage scene of Ash, Kiawe, and Sophocles preparing for the [[Charjabug race]] is a reference to the seriessports anime ''{{wp|Star of the Giants}}'', where the main character wore a similar contraption on his body, in order to straighten out his arms, making him better at playing baseball. {{MTR}} wore a similar device during a flashback in ''[[SM028|Pulling Out the Pokémon Base Pepper!]]''.
* [[Pose]] is used as an insert song during Charjabug's training montage for the race.
* This episode marks the first instance of Natures being mentioned in the {{pkmn|anime}}.
