  • On the original CD track listing, the song "All Good Things Must End" was misspelled "All Good Things Must Ends". This was corrected in the album's re-release on the American iTunes Store.
  • The track "Adventure in Paradise" contains music that was replaced in the movie by "Catch Me if You Can".
  • Most of the tracks used here are reused in Mewtwo Returns, an anime special that serves as a sequel to the first movie.
  • European releases of the CD listed the Pokémon Theme as a bonus track on the CD. Pokémon World, the theme for the show's second season, is featured rather than the correct theme music.
