I remember in the 1st few episodes, Pikachu seemed really fat. When did he start looking like he is now?

The animation changed and the art changed, so Pikachu's appearence would seem a little different.

Either that, or Pikachu just went on a diet. :P

I'm gonna go with what Satoshi said. Ash, Misty, Brock, and some other characters and Pokemon have changed slightly too. If you pay attention you'll notice it.

I think that Pikachu went on a diet after the episope where he almost chokes on an apple.

I think that Pikachu went on a diet when he was choking on the apple in that one hospital episode.
No. I don't think that was it. He was thin then too if I remember right.

Well, even in the new Sugimori art for Pikachu, he looks much thinner than he did in the original ones. Maybe someone could post some before/after shots from the show?

Because used to look pretty fat, yes. Which is one of the reasons I didn't like Pikachu alot few years ago, Pikachu looks slightly better new episodes.

Changes in animation is the logical reason.

Although you could say that Pikachu got thinner as Satoshi began to train it more and more. Guess those battles against the Rocket Gang helped afterall. :P

I agree with what Satoshi and some other people said about animation changes. Ash and Misty has changed a little, so did Brock, I think. Lol.

Besides, even if the animations didn't change, Pikachu battles a lot, he could lose weight from exercising.

The reason is because the different animation they use now. It happens all the time in anime's that were around about 5-6 years ago. If you look at some of the ones that have been around that long, look at the differences.

If I remember correctly, Satoshi was STILL a little tan in the first episodes, his tan just got darker, tis' all.

Guess all those Thundershocks from Pikachu really did him in. LOL

He was replying to me, Ed. Either way, there wasn't any reason for him to reply to my post.
