Who's That Pokémon?: Charjabug (Japan)
- Poké Problem: What is my Charjabug's Nature?
- Host: Sophocles
- Choices: Calm, Timid, Gentle, Mild
- Answer: Mild
- The car that Hayate's Shiny Charjabug drives is based on the high-speed flight form of a Shiny Genesect and the Red Zaku II from Gundam, from the horn on top of Charjabug's head and the team that it belongs to, being called "Red Comet".
- The Japanese title of this episode is a reference to the series Dash! Yonkuro. When cheering Charjabug on as it crossed the finish line, the faces that Ash, Sophocles, and Kiawe's made referenced some of its main characters.
- The disguises which Jessie and James wear in this episode are a reference to the series Bakusō Kyōdai Let's & Go!!, with Jessie's outfit based off of the character of Retsu Seiba and James's outfit based off of Gō Seiba.
- The contraption that Kiawe wears on his body during the montage scene of Ash, Kiawe, and Sophocles preparing for the Charjabug Race is a reference to the series Star of the Giants, where the main character wore a similar contraption on his body, in order to straighten out his arms, making him better at playing baseball. Meowth wore a similar device during a flashback in Pulling Out the Pokémon Base Pepper!.
- Pose is used as an insert song during Charjabug's training montage for the race.
- This episode marks the first instance of Natures being mentioned in the anime.
- Mallow, Ash, Lillie, Kiawe, Lana, and Sophocles narrate the preview for the next episode.
- When Charjabug first used String Shot, Sophocles was hit despite him standing behind the Battery Pokémon.
- Right when Castform is about to change from its Rainy Form to its Snowy Form, it's colored as its Normal Form.
