- Although Olimar claims he has never seen a potato before, it is clear that potatoes are known to Hocotatians, given that Louie's notes for the Emperor Bulblax mention the vegetable. It is, however, possible that potatoes on Hocotate are different from those on Earth.
- The name is likely a reference to the French word for potato, pomme de terre, which translates to "apple of the Earth".
