    I loved this episode cos it was Dawn, it's all about Dawn.

    And I think she will forever be remembered as one of the most influential characters the series ever brought to us thanks to some Ash similarities.

    FYI the Staraptor seen in this episode was shown to be around the size of Staravia.

    One of my favourite episodes!
    I love Dawn and Piplup and it was cute how they eventually made friends and Piplup wanted to save her life.

    I found myself bored with this episode. Maybe it's because of the whole starter non sense that didn't need to happen. I also wanted Dawn to wear some of those outfits in the contests instead of that same aweful pink dress that seems to never gets thrown out. Turtig could have been given to her as well but the cooler starters always go to the girls, don't they? 8/10


    Alder: You wanna know what's better than battling?
    Ash: What?
    Alder: Eating hotdogs and battling!
    Trip: My God, It's like looking into the future.

    Turtwig is the coolest starter, bro. Your statement is flawed.

    I was bored mainly because the entire episode was about Dawn and we only see Ash in the end.

    Yeah but Piplup could have been Ash's then if it was so. I like all of the sinnoh starters. If Aipom wasn't here then I could have totally see Ash with Chimchar instead of waiting about 15 episodes ahead to then get it. But again, the writer do whatever they want.

    I just rewatched this episode. I still love that most of the episode focuses on Dawn. Also this episode is awesome because 1 of the best characters in the anime debuts here
    I give it a 10/10!

    The episode was alright. Not too great, but it's nice to see a new trainer who wasn't an idiot in the beginning. That's one of the things I liked about Dawn. Ash should have gotten more screentime though.

    This is the episode that began the DP saga, and it was mostly focused on the new main female lead Dawn .... Who wants to become a top Coordinator like her mother, Johanna. It's interesting how the beginning of Dawn's journey was very similar to Ash's. The part when Dawn imagines about performing contests each of the three starter, was very similar too Ash's dream in the first episode. Dawn and Piplup's encounter with Ariados also reminded me of the very first Pokemon episode, where Ash and Pikachu encountered a folk of Beedrill.
    And also, Dawn seeing Mesprit in this episode was similar to Ash seeing Ho-oh in the first episode.
    When I watched this episode for the first time, I thought Dawn replaced Ash in the anime ...... Until he appeared at the last moment. Team Rocket, once again was trying to steal Pikachu ... But they blasted off and Pikachu got seperated from Ash. I thought It was suspenseful way to end this episode.

    If you're studying the evolution of a Pokemon, wouldn't it make sense to have all three of the same line? Meh, doesn't matter too much.
    Neat little throwback to the very first episode with Dawn imagining entering contests with the three starters, like Ash and him starting his adventure with the three Kanto starters.

    I cackled when Dawn packed all her clothes in the beginning, and I thought it was cute that her mom gave her a ribbon; it was a symbolic gesture. I was really creeped out by that wild Ariados that had various wild Pokemon in its web, and I cackled since Dawn left them there and didn't save them. Lake Verity was pretty though and omg Mesprit.

    Pretty great episode and pretty much all of it focused on Dawn starting her journey with Piplup. Loved all the nice moments between Dawn and Piplup and it was nice that both got to see Mesprit. 10/10

    Almost all of the episode focused on Dawn which was a nice refreshing change for once.

    Kind of nit picky but why did Dawn leave those wild Pokemon behind in the Ariados webs?? They probably died and she showed no remorse which is strangely funny. 7/10

    Dawn getting a whole episode for her debut was unexpected, but her and Piplup's troubles with the Ariados wasn't exciting until we saw Bide's power.

    Dawn seemed so quirky here and I liked that she bonded with Piplup after saving him from the Ariados web, tho it's kind of messed up how she left the wild pokemon on the web ha ha. And cool, Mesprit made a cameo. :3

    Chimchar would've been awesome as her Starter in place of Mr. Steals Screen-time, aka Piplup. Too bad she chose him instead.

    I love that Dawn got a whole episode to herself right off the bat. It kind of hinted that she would be one of the stars this season.

    This was a really good introductory episode.
    Makes me think I may like this season a lot -just coming back to Pokemon after quitting about half way through AG because "real life happened", which I rewatched and this time did finish- but I'll have to wait and see.
    Hard to grade it but I'd say 9.5/10. Team Rocket's bit, while good, felt forced, as contradictory as it may sound.

    Dawn was such a scatterbrained and amusing beginner trainer and seeing her save her brand new Piplup from the web was my favorite moment here.

    I thought Piplup was perfect for her despite his flaws. I liked seeing Piplup chase Chimchar however, plus how Staraptor went and got Chimchar back with its talons. :]

    First off, I liked Dawn's mother a lot even if her hair was an awkward afro. She was realistic though, which was nice enough. I liked Dawn too: she was very easy to like, although her picking Piplup as her Starter doomed DP's future.~
