Major events


Pokémon debuts





  • The episode was originally believed to be called 教えて!ポケットモンスター!! Teach me! Pocket Monsters!. Then it was announced that it was to be a special aired with DP119 and that the episode's title was really さびしがりやのユキカブリ! The Lonely Yukikaburi!. It was then revealed that the former was actually DP121 set to air on April 2, 2009 and that this episode's title was changed yet again.
  • This is the anime's third clip show, after AG120 and DP048.
  • Due to not having a Professor Oak's lecture or similar segment following it, this is the shortest episode in over ten years, last matched by EP060.
  • Aim to Be a Pokémon Master, By Your Side ~Hikari's Theme~ and Pokémon Symphonic Medley are used as background music.
  • This is the final episode to be broadcast in Japan in a 4:3 Aspect ratio. As of the following episode, all episodes are shown in a 16:9 aspect ratio.
    • However, Cartoon Network's standard-definition feed continued to air the show in a 4:3 aspect ratio for another five episodes after this, not switching to 16:9 until Classroom Training!; Cartoon Network would start switching back and forth between 4:3 and 16:9 for standard-definition airings starting five episodes afterward, before the network stopped its cropping practices during the week prior to the initial dubbed airing of Sticking With Who You Know!; high-definition presentations were maintained in all instances.
