TV episode debuts





  • Professor Oak's Pokémon lecture: Donphan
  • Team Rocket narrates the preview for the next episode.
  • As of this episode, Ash, Paul, and Barry have all three final forms of the Sinnoh starter Pokémon between them.
  • This episode's preview did not show Monferno evolving, as most previews give away Pokémon evolving in the next episode. This might be because the episode's title itself revealed the evolution.
  • This marks the first time since the Original Series that a rival of Ash's shows off all his badges and shares a few of Ash's but also shows some unknown named Badges.


  • In an initial announcement for this episode, TV Tokyo's website incorrectly stated that Barry had won the Coal Badge from the Sunyshore Gym. This was corrected a day later, stating instead that Barry won the Beacon Badge from the Sunyshore Gym.
