Revision as of 01:16, 27 September 2013 by Gabo 2oo (Talk | contribs) (Deleted the "first time all the Pokémon at Oak's lab are seen together" thing because this would end when Ash sends another one to Oak, and also, this can't count because the first time would be technically in EP001 as Pikachu was Ash's only Pokémon.)

Pokémon debuts




Who's That Pokémon?: Zekrom (Japan)


  • This episode was followed by a preview for SS027, narrated by Cilan and Brock, and a preview for the XY series, narrated by Ash.
  • Similar to the final episodes of the previous three series, the usual To be continued is replaced with Next Time... A New Beginning!.
  • This is the first time where the Dare da? Pokémon in the Japanese version doesn't make an actual appearance in the episode itself.
  • The jingle that previously played from BW001 to BW019 during the title cards is used again in this episode.
  • The background music used for Team Rocket's motto is the original Unova motto music that previously played from BW002 to BW006, instead of the usual Sinnoh motto music re-arrangement that has played from BW035 onwards.
  • This episode is, to date, the largest gathering of all of Ash's Pokémon at one time. It should be noted that with the exception of Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Tauros and the ones he travelled with in Unova, Ash's Pokémon only appear in a photograph shown during a post-credits scene.
  • All of Ash's Unova Pokémon are seen together for the first time.
  • As of this episode, Palpitoad renews its record for being Ash's Pokémon with the most episodes absent while still being in rotation.
  • As of this episode, Ash's Charizard permanently returns from training in the Charicific Valley, staying behind at Professor Oak's Laboratory with the rest of Ash's Pokémon, rather than going back to the care of Liza. It marks the first time Charizard has stayed at the lab under the care of Professor Oak.
  • This episode confirms Ash's Gliscor was sent to Professor Oak's laboratory following the Lily of the Valley Conference.
  • Giovanni appears in this episode wearing his new XY series clothes.
  • During one of Ash's fantasies, Misty is shown in her original series outfit instead of the clothes she wore in her later appearances.
    • However, in another of Ash's fantasies, May is wearing the outfit she used after parting ways with Ash instead.
