1)  The word "bakudan" (爆誕) used in this title is the same made-up word that was first used for the title of the second
Pocket Monsters movie, "The Mythical Pokémon Lugia's Explosive Birth."  The working title for that movie was "X's Explosive Birth."
2) "I Got Some Experience Points!" (経験値いただきます!) is Shota's catchphrase.
