COMMENTS

No other terms below 10^41.
The sequence is probably finite.
The two distinct digits of a term cannot both be in the set {0,2,3,7,8}. Looking at the digits (with leading zeros) of i^2 mod 10^4 for 0 <= i < 10^4 shows that there are no repunit terms > 10 and the two distinct digits of a term must be one of the following 21 pairs: '01', '04', '09', '12', '14', '16', '18', '24', '25', '29', '34', '36', '45', '46', '47', '48', '49', '56', '67', '69', '89'.
