- Contrived Coincidence: Not only do Brock and Cilan meet in a completely random situation, they even make friends with a girl who owns a Pikachu.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Brock and Cilan meet up. If Cilan would have learned the "Lady Sommelier's" name, they both might have actually found out that they have a couple of mutual friends.
- Rampage from a Nail: The Gyarados' rampage was because of an injury near its tail.
- Running Gag: Croagunk appears at the end to put a stop to Brock hitting on Nurse Joy.
- Title Drop: Cilan's parting words to Brock? "Best wishes."
