Noctowl is the only Pokémon in Ash's team that is capable of using damaging Psychic-type attacks.
Noctowl is also the only shiny Pokémon in the anime to sparkle when it leaves its Poké Ball.
Noctowl is the only one of Ash's bird Pokémon to have been fully evolved when it was captured. As such, Noctowl is also the only Flying-type Pokémon currently owned by Ash that did not evolve under his ownership.
Despite Pokédex entries in the games stating how Noctowl can fly without making a sound, Pikachu was able to beat Noctowl by listening to the sound of its wings.
