Major events


Pokémon debuts





  • Several of the Pikachu wear hairstyles similar to the hairstyles that can be given to the starter Pokémon Pikachu and Eevee in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!
  • From this episode onwards, the anime moves from its Thursday 6:55 PM timeslot to a Sunday 6:00 PM slot. This marks the first time the show has changed its airing day since returning to the air following the EP038 incident over 20 years earlier.
    • Coincidentally, this episode, like Pikachu's Goodbye (the first episode to air after the show switched from Tuesdays to Thursdays), also concerns a valley where a large number of Pikachu live.
  • The Japanese title's inclusion of "大量発生チュウ", which translates to "Infestation-chu" may be a reference to the title of the event in Japan where people in Pikachu costumes walked through the streets, "ピカチュウ大量発生チュウ", which translates to "Pikachu Infestation-chu".
