- The Japanese title of this episode is a reference to William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
- Ash makes an indirect reference to Tobias when Goh asks him if he's met a Darkrai before, with Ash saying that it is strong in battle.
- This episode reveals that there are Pokémon Contests held in the Unova region.
- Piplup gains a redesign, now having blue eyes like the games instead of having black eyes as it was depicted from Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl to Pokémon the Series: XY. Although this seems exclusive to Dawn's Piplup, as another Piplup shown earlier in the same series had its original design.
- Chloe attempting to take along an overpacked suitcase and Talia giving her a more reasonably sized bag instead are references to how Dawn and Johanna did the same in Following A Maiden's Voyage!.
- Chloe, Dawn, Ash, Piplup, and Pikachu narrate the preview for the next episode.
