Melody's sister Carol looks like Neesha from "Pokemon the First Movie".
This movie revealed Delia, Professor Oak, and Professor Ivy's first names.
When Professor Oak and Professor Ivy are being interviewed on the helicopter, an Ekans can be seen swimming in the water. However, its evolution, Arbok, is seen stranded on the land despite the fact that Jessie's Arbok was able to easily swim in "The Misty Mermaid".
When Ash and Maren are heading to Fire Island in her boat, the rudder starts falling off before they hit the rock.
Melody calls Misty by her name before the two are ever introduced.
Lugia: The song, the song has restored my strength. But it alone cannot bring harmony to the three waring ones.
Ash: What do you mean?
Lugia: When the islands of fire, ice, and lightning are aligned, my song shall tame the beasts both above, and below the sea. But this can only come to pass with the help of the chosen one.
Ash: But what can I do that somebody else can't?
Lugia: Only in the hands of the true chosen one, will the ice sphere glow like the others, it's power awaken. (Lugia points to Ice Island, where Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are fighting)
Ash: I have to go...there?
Lugia: The choice is yours. You must go only where your heart leads.
Ash: I hope this ceremony doesn't come with...a funeral.
Jessie: He's always the hero.
James: We're always the zeros.
Meowth: We could be heroes too if we ever caught a break.
Jessie: I'd hate to get burned by their fire.
James: I'd hate to get zapped by their lightning.
Meowth: I'd hate to get hit by...their droppings!
Lugia: This day,the one that can make all the difference is you.
James: If the legend is true, then all intelligent life will be destroyed.
Jessie: That's right.
James: And I'll be...
Meowth: You will be fine.
Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice, and lightning.
Lest these titans wreak destruction, in the world in which they clash.
The water's great guardian shall rise to quell the fighting
But alone, his song shall fail, and the world will turn to Ash.
Oh, Chosen One, bring together all three.
Their treasures combined, tame, the Beast of the Sea.
Lawrence III: (picks up his Ancient Mew card) How it all began...and how it will all begin...again.
(falling out of sky)
Jessie: Think we did the right thing?
James: I know we did the right thing Jessie, and it feels great.
Jessie: Well, let's not say goodbye
James: Let's just say
Meowth: We're gonna die (all three splash into the ocean)
Jessie: Prepare for more trouble than you've ever seen!
James: And make it double we're on the big screen!
Melody: What are you coming for?
Misty: To find Ash! And before you start saying it's because I secretly like him, don't because I don't!
Melody: Chill out. You sure are sensitive about someone who's not your boyfriend.
Misty: He's not my boyfriend! He's a boy, and he's a friend, but he's not my boyfriend!
Tracey: Hey, you talkin' about me?
Jessie: If that kid thinks we're here for trouble...
James: We're certainly going to burst his bubble!
Jessie: Instead of causing tribulation
James: We've undergone a transformation
Jessie: Though it's way outside our usual range.
James: We're going to do something nice for a change.
Jessie: Aha! Jessie!
Jessie: Up till now, Team Rocket's been quite unscrupulous
James: being good guys for once would be super dupulous!
Meowth: Dat's right!
Ash: What are they doing here?
Misty: Lets find Ash.
Melody: Yeah, and if he needs any help, his girlfriend's here.
Misty: but I'm not...
Melody: Well, like you said, you are a girl and you are his friend, isn't that right?
Ash: I feel more like the frozen one!.
Slowking: I could use pants.
Melody: Take this (referring to the flute)
Melody: Legend or not, Ash can't do this alone. (Melody and Misty stare at each other, then Misty shakes her head)
Misty: You'll have to play Lugia's song. I'll go look for him, and Ash is never really alone 'cause he's got, me.
Jessie: So then we're not bad?
James: That's good!
Meowth: What if the boss finds out?
James: That's bad.
Jessie: We'll start our own team!
James: That's good!
Meowth: But we got no money...
James: That's bad.
Jessie: Then we'll just steal some!
James: That's good, or is that bad?
Jessie: We're slowing Lugia down, the three of us are too heavy.
James: Let's try weight watchers.
Jessie: It's too late for that.
Meowth: I heard it's never too late if you really stick to the program!
The movie was published in the book Pokémon The Movie 2000.

Pokémon Debuts: Slowking, Lugia, Articuno
During the scene when Ash and Team Rocket are trying to free Moltres and Zapados, Tracey is doing a quick equation, thinking out loud about what happens when you mix fire water and electricity, and the fact that it will cause a huge explosion. This scene is cut from the English dub of the film.
The entire musical score for this film was replaced from its original Japanese version, including Lugia's musical 'cry', and the original song that played during the ending-credits of the film which was sung in Japanese.
