This episode is the final part of the Blackthorn City Arc.
Wynaut was never seen by any human throughout the entire Blackthorn Arc.
It was also the second Generation III Pokémon to be seen before the digital transition. The first being Kecleon.
This is the first episode in which, though in flashbacks, all the Gym Leaders in one region were present.
