We're Going on a Bear Hunt reference in Pokemon Sun & Pokemon Moon.

  • There is a reference to We're Going on a Bear Hunt in the Nintendo 3DS games Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon as well as Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, an NPC in the game sings "We're going on a berry hunt, We're going to find a big one!"
  • When Michael talks about the book, he never says that he wrote it, he says that he helped make it. This is because the words are adapted from an old folk song.
