Brock's missing shirt
  • This episode's dub title is a reference to the popular saying, "thanks a lot!"


  • In one scene, Brock's shirt is not showing underneath his army clothing.
  • Just after the scene in which the Arbotank digs a tunnel through the mountain, Ash, Misty, Brock, and Team Rocket are seen standing in front of the newly-created tunnel. Pikachu is also shown standing with them. However, this shouldn't be, since Pikachu was trapped inside the Arbotank at this time.
