Continuity mistake: In the scene where they first visit the lake of life, Sam wades into the water (all the way up to his waist). As he steps out there is only water at his ankles and moments later there is no water.

Character mistake: When they find a Suicine, they ask Oak and he says it's a Swecon.

Trivia: Back when the movie was in the pre-planning stages, the story was supposedly going to revolve around the GS Ball, which Ash and company carried all throughout the Orange Islands and 1/3 of the way through Johto. Evidentally, the GS Ball was going to be finally opened to reveal that Celebi was hidden inside. This may have been the movie's plot had Pokémon Crystal not come out for the GameBoy Color.

Trivia: In the early reports when Movie 3 was still being made, there were rumors that Movies 3 and 4 were going to be interconnected, with Entei working with Mewtwo or something and then finding Celebi. Obviously, the creators abadoned this idea.

Trivia: Because Miramax is now the distributor (and maybe because of the lower budget), the original Japanese score is used in this film (except during the three US-only scenes). In the previous movies, all the music was changed, as is now being done on the TV series.
