- The last season of the English dub of the Pokémon anime to be aired on Cartoon Network.
- The first season where the villain Team goes after the third member of a Legendary Trio instead of the first two. Unlike the games, Team Flare goes after Zygarde.
- The first season to not have any of the main characters catch or obtained a new Pokémon.
