- First Appearance: This is the first appearance of Hilbert, Calem, Emma and AZ in a Pokémon animation.
- Milestone Celebration: The series was released as part of the Pokémon franchise's 20th anniversary.
- Real-Life Relative:
- Lex Lang and Sandy Fox, the respective English voice actors for Maxie and Courtney, are married in real life. Though this isn't the first time their relationship was ironic.
- In the Japanese version, the mother and daughter in the final episode were voiced by Kikuko Inoue and her real life daughter Honoka respectively.
- Role Reprise: In the Italian dub, Mario Zucca reprises his role as Clay from the regular anime.
- The Other Darrin: Perhaps to emphasize the different continuities, any characters shared between this and Origins are played by a different cast in both Japanese and English. Incidentally though, Giovanni's previous voice actors in both languages are both present, as noted in Casting Gag.
