* Despite the sumo competition's weight requirement of at least {{tt|80 kilograms|176.4 lbs}}, many of the competing Pokémon's listed species weights are below the requirement, such as {{p|Arbok}} (65 kg) and {{p|Nidoking}} (62 kg). This is most likely because each species of Pokémon can vary in weight in the anime, as opposed to the games, where members of a species almost always weigh the same.
* The idea of Pokémon Sumo Wrestling would later be revisited in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} with the Ring Drop and Circle Push events of the [[Pokéathlon]].

* Music from the [[M02|second movie]] can be heard in this episode.
* The King's Rock Ash acquires in this episode is later used in ''[[EP247|Outrageous Fortunes]]'' to evolve Misty's Poliwhirl into a [[Misty's Politoed|Politoed]].
