  • Smeargle is the only Pokémon that is not a Grass-type starter Pokémon able to learn Frenzy Plant, due to Sketch.
  • Mew, though repeatedly said on the Pokédex to be able to learn any move, is not able to learn Frenzy Plant because it can only be taught to Grass-type starter Pokémon.
  • In Pokémon Colosseum, this attack was erroneously named Solid Plant.
