  • Jessie, disguised as Jessilina, dresses up like Fantina for this episode's Contest. She also uses a French accent similar to Fantina's.
  • Dawn's appeal corresponds May's Appeal in Lessons In Lilycove as it was their third Contest and both had some type of unintentional effect in the appeal.
  • James and Meowth wore the same outfits they wore in Gymbaliar!.
  • This episode contains the anime's first representation of Substitute, an attack that has existed since Generation I.
  • The dub title for this episode is a reference to the phrase "bridging the generation gap".
  • Team Rocket doesn't blast off or recite their motto in this episode.


  • In one scene, when Lila's bodyguard pulled her away, the ribbons on Dawn's dress disappear.
  • At one point after Lila made her appeal Cherrim posed, the viewer can see a line running down its flower petal giving it the impression it has two flowers on its head instead of one.
  • The status ailment Attraction does not wear off on its own in the games: the afflicted Pokémon must be switched out or the one who inflicted it must be removed from battle.
