Trivia

Porygon's cameo
  • This clipshow was previously shown on TV as part of the Pocket Monsters, Fall Special!. However, at that time, it had no individual titlecard.
    • Text on the final scene stating "It's not over yet! Coming up next is Rokon! Breeder Showdown!!!" was also replaced with a zoom-out and "To Be Continued" message.
  • Despite being released after the EP038 incident, footage of Porygon was retained, in a "World of Pokémon" segment similar to those seen at the beginning of movies.
  • As the episode is approximately 50 minutes long, it has four Dare da? eyecatches.
