  • Who's That Pokémon?: Zapdos
  • This is the first episode to air on a Friday timeslot.
  • Similar to Ash in "All Fired Up!", Goh expresses a desire to catch a member of the Legendary Birds.
  • This is one of the rare occasions Jessie and James don't recite their motto.
    • Speaking of which, this episode and the aforementioned one from the original series are the only episodes which a character other than them wants to catch a legendary.
  • When Goh battled Zapdos, the opening theme is used as an insert song near the end.
    • For some reason, its production team was only revealed after its premiere in Japan.
