  • The Latin American version of this soundtrack included a hidden bonus track: the Spanish version of Pokémon Theme performed by Álvaro Véliz.
  • Tracks 1 and 16 are featured in the actual film, while tracks 2, 4, 8, and 15 are featured in the film's end credits. Tracks 11 and 13 are featured in Pikachu's Vacation, which accompanied the film in theaters and home video releases. The remaining tracks are unrelated to the movie.
  • This is one of the few English Pokémon soundtracks not available in the iTunes Store, possibly due to difficulty with licensing as many contemporary pop stars performed on the album.
  • Copies of the soundtrack CD sold in the United Kingdom had the Jigglypuff promo card packaged in with it rather than have it be a mail-in offer.
