**Constant flashbacks which serve some importance to the plot. (''[[Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]'')
**Solving a riddle. (''[[Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea]]'')
*Oddly enough, themes from ''[[Pokémon 4Ever]]'' are not used in this movie.
*This is the first movie to have a hint towards it being canon made BEFORE it was released (most movies have them being hinted at being canon AFTER it's release, even Mewtwo Strikes back)
