  • The title is based on the phrase "catch me if you can," which also happened to be the title of a movie released around the time the episode debuted in English-speaking countries.
  • This is the first time where Ash has seven Pokémon in his party at one time (although it should be noted that Ash never officially captures Larvitar).
