Pokémon seen on scoreboards
- This is the first time when Ash's league placement has regressed compared to the previous tournament.
- The full version of Be an Arrow! was played during the flashback scenes close to the end of the episode.
- The ending of the episode is a direct callback to the ending of Friends to the End, as Ash stands in the middle of the arena and has flashbacks of his journey while the sun rises over the league torch and the full theme song plays.
- The scene where Ash is staring at the sun rising is similar to the beginning of Pokémon Theme.
- Instead of a preview of the next episode, this episode was followed by a trailer for the upcoming Episode N saga.
- This episode marks the first time outside of a flashback where a Lucario is seen being defeated on screen.
- This episode is the first time where the final round battle is shown on screen.
