Of the Yo-kai who became jealous for not being summoned, the only one who wasn't summoned subsequently is Peckpocket.
The fact that Roughraff was jealous may mean that he only gets angry when summoned to appear rude.
Minochi didn't give his medal to Nate and wasn't registered in the Recap Time, most likely due to making Katie Forester jealous of Nate, making several Yo-kai jealous, and being eaten by Hungramps and Grubsnitch.
This is the first time where Hungramps and Grubsnitch ate a Yo-kai together.
Pittapatt is the first Yo-kai to apologize to someone he has previously inspirited.
