Trivia

Porygon2 in the Pokérap GS
  • The credits included with the Pokérap GS as a bonus feature on the Spell of the Unown: Entei DVD release say "... and will be added to the end of Season 4 TV episodes ...", which means that it was originally planned to be included with TV airings of the fourth season of the anime.
  • The Pokérap GS marks the only post-EP038 appearance of Porygon2 in the anime before Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice.
  • While Celebi was omitted, the space where the lyrics say "Pokémon!" instead of something rhyming with Togepi implies this is where it was meant to be placed.
  • If one was to rearrange the Pokérap so all of the Pokémon are in National Pokédex order, Remoraid would remain in its position in the song.
