  • Revival Blessing is one of two moves (excluding Struggle) whose base PP is not a multiple of 5, the other being Sketch.
    • Additionally, both Sketch and Revival Blessing cannot have their maximum PP increased.
  • The only Pokémon that can learn this move learn it upon evolution, with the condition for their evolution being leveling up while outside of their Poké Ball after walking 1000 steps using the Let's Go! feature. Not even Smeargle can learn this move, because Sketch fails on it.
  • Revival Blessing is the only game mechanic that can revive a fainted Pokémon during a battle without using the Bag. Consequently, it is the only game mechanic that can revive a Pokémon in standard link battles or Video Game Championships.
