Who's That Pokémon?: Charmander (Japan)
- This is the first appearance of Ash's Charizard since Pace - The Final Frontier!, 309 episodes ago.
- This is the first time Misty had a speaking role since The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon.
- This episode features the following flashbacks, which have all been reanimated to match the style introduced in Best Wishes series:
- This episode marks the first time since the episode it was first used in where Seismic Toss is not a part of Charizard's moveset.
- This is the first time when Ash has sent a Pokémon from his Unova team to Professor Oak's Laboratory, namely Unfezant.
- Although Jessie, James and Meowth only appear briefly in a flashback, they are barely visible as in the scene they appear at they are being burned by Charmander's Flamethrower, leaving only their weak silhouette visible.
- The Magikarp salesman makes a cameo appearance in this episode as one of the vendors at the Kanto Fair, meaning he has now appeared at least once in every anime series so far.
- This episode marks the first time that Ash has had two Fire-type Pokémon in his party at one time.
- Ash's Sinnoh attire is the only one he was not shown wearing during this episode, as his Charizard does not appear throughout the Diamond and Pearl series.
