- Who's That Pokémon?: Mimey
- Mimey protecting Pikachu from a flock of Spearow is reminiscent of the moment Ash defended Pikachu at the beginning of their story.
- Pikachu feels a similar jealousy to what Lauren's Piplup felt in "The Sinnoh Iceberg Race!", Ash's Bayleef when it was a Chikorita in "Chikorita's Big Upset" and Dawn's Piplup in "Piplup, Up and Away!".
- Chloe made a reference to the previous episode.
- Pikachu felt neglected the same way in "Pokémon the Series: Black & White" in "Dazzling the Nimbasa Gym!"
- This episode was the first episode that was announced post shutdown.
- Both Ash and Delia sing Goodnight, My Pikachu as a lullaby to Pikachu.
- This is the first time Pikachu was not used in a 1v1 World Coronation Series battle. Due to this, Pikachu felt neglected, as Ash was more focused on Riolu that episode.
- The English dub title is a reference to a song Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.
