- This is the first time that a season of Pokémon's English dub has a sneak preview, ever since Pokémon: Advanced, which was three generations ago. This is also the very first time in the anime where the gap between an episode premiering in its normal original Japanese form, and arriving dubbed into English, occurs on the same week as the original Japanese premiere, therefore making it just two days between the original premiere and its dubbed English release.
- This season was the first to include the VS. player overview images before the battle.
- This is the second time in the Pokémon anime season that two of Ash's traveling companions that includes an older and younger sibling. The first time was with the Pokémon: Advanced with May and Max.
- However, both of the siblings, Clemont and Bonnie, are based on their game counterparts. May was based off of hers, but Max never had a direct game counterpart (he was indirectly based on the School Boy trainer class).
- An Undersea Place to Call Home! was originally scheduled to be the 24th episode of this season. However, due to a ship sinking in Korea which caused this episode to be postponed in Japan, it is instead the second episode of the 18th dub season, Pokémon the Series: XY Kalos Quest.
