Trivia

  • This is the first major battle tournament since the Whirl Cup that Ash has entered with any of his friends, and the first one that he has entered with more than one of them (Iris and Cilan, in this case).
    • Similar to the Whirl Cup, Ash is outlasted by one of his friends.
  • This is the first major battle tournament where Team Rocket aren't selling merchandise or snacks (due to them being busy preparing for their operations in Nimbasa City).
  • The Pokémon Ash entered for the tournament were all used in Ash's then-upcoming Gym battle against Elesa in Dazzling the Nimbasa Gym!. Indeed, Ash said he would use the tournament as a warm-up for his Gym battle. However, he was not planning to use Snivy and Pikachu in his battle with Elesa.
  • On Pokémon.com, this tournament is also referred to as the Nimbasa Town Pokémon Battle Tournament, Pokémon Club Battle Tournament, Nimbasa Pokémon Battle Tournament, and the Nimbasa Pokémon Club Battle.
