Trivia

  • Zinnia replaces the Rayquaza's move Fly in the delta episode for Dragon Ascent, while Fly is a HM.
    • HMS aren't normally able to be replaced by other moves in this way.
  • Despite having dragon in the name, it a Flying-type move instead of a Dragon-type move.
    • This might have been intentional due to the Flying-type being super-effective against more types and the Dragon-type is super-effective against one (Dragon is only effective against itself).
