Who’s That Pokémon?: Gengar
- The episode was temporarily banned from re-airing on Kids' WB! after the September 11 attacks, as the title was reminiscent of the incident. It was later aired on January 29, 2002.
- Due to the nature of the episode title, Kids' WB! refused to give the tape to Cartoon Network for them to air this episode back in 2002. They have since given up the rights to air it, officially re-airing on October 19, 2007 at 6:30 AM ET. The episode is also currently available on VHS and DVD.
- This episode's dub title is a reference to the theme park ride, Tower of Terror.
- When Pikachu shocks Ash in one scene, Ash's Japanese voice can be heard.
- In the last scene with Team Rocket on the Merry-go-round, Gengar's eyes are white instead of the normal red.
