* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: ''Two Perfect Girls.''
** ''What Kind of Pokémon are You?'', a song performed by a man representing Dexter, Ash's PokéDex.
** Psyduck's cameos, which are used to change sets.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: ''You Just Can't Win'' for all the fans who would've liked to see Ash and Giovanni actually face each other. This was the closest they'd come to a fight until the ''Best Wishes'' series 13 years later. The song is made even cooler in context, as it takes place after [=MechaMew2=] defeats Pikachu, so Ash tries to fight Giovanni himself.
** ''Team Rocket's Rockin' (Double Trouble)'' is pretty damn awesome. As is Giovanni's VillainSong.
* EvilIsCool: Giovanni, Team Rocket, and even the Rocket Grunts completely steal the show.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: "My Best Friends" is a little awkward since Misty and Brock have left the show.
* HamAndCheese: Darren Dunstan's performance as Giovanni is reminiscent of Raul Julia in the [[Film/StreetFighter Street Fighter live-action film]].
* HilariousInHindsight: Delia's reluctance to watch Ash grow up, since Ash in the anime is still 10.
* {{HSQ}}: The last 15 minutes have, in rapid succession:
** Ash and Giovanni facing off in a Pokemon battle. While short, this was the closest they'd come to a fight until the ''Best Wishes'' series--and in the anime their fight was even shorter.
** Ash trying to fight Giovanni ''physically'' after Pikachu is defeated. Giovanni responds in kind.
** The real Mewtwo showing up and saving Ash from [=MechaMew2=]'s Hyper Beam, then attacking [=MechaMew2=] [[spoiler:with Ash's memories]].
** [=MechaMew2=] gaining sentience and giving a touching speech about what it learned from Ash before putting Giovanni in a headlock and blowing itself up.
* LevelBreaker: Most of the songs are well-sang, and many are quite heartfelt, but as soon as the word "Pokemon" pops up, you can't help but laugh a little bit.
* MoralEventHorizon: Giovanni orders [=MechaMew2=] to attack Ash, a 10 year old boy whom he ''knows'' is the child of his ex-girlfriend, directly.
* OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow: If [[spoiler:Mewtwo had not shown up]], there is no way that Ash would have been able to beat Giovanni on his own.
* SoBadItsGood: Again, it probably would have been just plain good if Pokemon ''hadn't'' been involved.
