  • As of this episode, Together 2008 is replaced by High Touch! as the opening theme.
  • This episode marks exactly 60 episodes since Team Galactic's first anime appearance. In it, however, they hired Jessie, James, and Meowth to nab the Adamant Orb from Eterna City, while this time around the group itself nabbed both it and the Lustrous Orb from Celestic Town, which lies on the opposite side of Mt. Coronet and Route 211 from Eterna.
  • It is revealed in this episode that Brock's Croagunk is able to sense when Saturn's Toxicroak is nearby, possibly an allusion to its Anticipation Ability.
    • Due to this, it is the first time Brock's Croagunk does not stop him from flirting a girl.
  • During the title card sequence, the former title card music from the Battle Frontier portion of the Advanced Generation series is played. The same applies to Double Team Turnover!.
  • The dub title for this episode is a reference to the phrase "losing its luster".
  • Prior to the next episode's actual dub title being revealed, Cartoon Network had listed this episode's dub title with a "(Part 1)" attached, causing some confusion over the next episode's dub title.
  • Team Rocket doesn't blast off or recite their motto in this episode.


  • During the episode in a one-second frame, an animation error takes place where Officer Jenny disappears as Ash moves in front of her.
  • Croagunk's Japanese voice can be heard in one scene.
  • After Team Galactic announces the completion of phase four, Cynthia's Garchomp is nowhere to be seen, despite had been called out of his Poké Ball a bit more than a minute before.
