With the airing of [[bp:AG152|AG152]] in Japan, viewers were surprised to come across an unexpected update to the ''[[bp:Battle Frontier (song)|Battle Frontier]]'' intro sequence.
 
* [[bp:Jessie's Dustox|Jessie's Dustox]] makes an appearance in the Team Rocket segment. However, there is no longer a blur of [[bp:Manyula (Pokémon)|Manyula]] rushing throughacross the screen.
 
* Replacing the scene of [[bp:Lucario (Pokémon)|Lucario]] resting on a tree limb and [[bp:Mew (Pokémon)|Mew]] flying by, is a new scene based on the boxart of the games ''Pokémon: Dungeon of Mystery - Red and Blue'', which went on sale on the same day this episode aired. While the Red version's boxart is closely depicted, the same cannot be said for the Blue version's boxart, with [[bp:Ash's Pikachu|Ash's Pikachu]] and, [[bp:Ash's Corpish|Ash's Corpish]], and [[bp:May's Squirtle|May's Squirtle]] and [[bp:May's Munchlax|May's Munchlax]] appearing instead of the original characters (specially-equipped {{p|Pikachu}}, {{p|Squirtle}}, {{p|Totodile}} and {{p|Mudkip}}).
 
FansMany concludefans haved concluded that the last portion of the Battle Frontier intro is dedicated to advertising Pokémon attractions in Japan (the debut of the original intro followed the premiere of the [[bp:Mew and the Wave-Guiding Hero: Lucario|eighth movie]], accounting for Manyula, Mew and Lucario), and so it will be updated accordingly. Much like Manyula's appearance was rendered misleading (many fans assumed Team Rocket would acquire it), such will likely be the case with the inclusion of the cast's Pokémon in place of the Dungeon of Mystery characters.
It is further speculated that the sequence will eventually be updated in honor of both the ''Pokémon Ranger'' game and movie.
 
Also deserving of note is that prior to the first scene of the episode, there was a countdown featuring altered clips from ''[[bp:Advance Adventure|Advance Adventure]]'' and a clip from ''[[bp:Pokémon Symphonic Medley|Pokémon Symphonic Medley]]''. It is as of yet unknown what this is meant to mark.
