Trivia

  • The Japanese name of this move, つばめがえし Swallow Return (more commonly known in English as the "Turning Swallow Cut"), is probably taken from the signature technique of the legendary swordsman Sasaki Kojirō (the namesake of Team Rocket's James). It is widely believed that it consisted of first a rapid downward slash from above, immediately followed by an upward slash on the same line (this same motion is used for the move's animation in Generation IV). Its name came from Kojirō's observations of the motion of a swallow's tail in flight.
  • Heracross is the only non Flying-type Pokémon able to learn Aerial Ace naturally.
  • Although Kabuto can learn Aerial Ace in Generation III through TM, it can no longer capable of learning this move in later generations with the same TM.
  • For unknown reasons, Fearow couldn't learn Aerial Ace naturally, while its pre-evolution could in Generation III.
  • Despite Winona's post-battle claim in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Aerial Ace is not an increased priority move.
  • Diglet and Dugtrio can learn this move despite being known for never leaving the ground, which contradicts with the move's typing.
