  • Power Gem is notable for being exclusive to Pokémon with designs that incorporate gemlike features, thus being distributed among Pokémon independent of type.
  • It is the only Rock-type Beauty move.
  • Despite not being able to learn it, Diancie is seen using Power Gem on X and Y's official website. However, since the battle takes place in a cave, it is possible the move Diancie used was actually Nature Power.
