    After seeing the pics of this episode, I can tell that the show's writers have really lost it. Naetoru is just a fake as# Bulbasaur.

    How? Because it can solve a dispute by tackling pokemon causing them to faint. It's personality isnt much like Bulbasaur's. The only similarity between it is it knows how to solve a dispute just like alot of Ash's pokemon are capable of doing. Its' moveset is fairly different and has very non-bulbasaur quirks to it.
    This best part of this episode was when Naetle's Tackle attack managed to send Maskippa flying into Team Rocket, resulting in an explosion, of all things.
    I dont know ever since the start of D/P random things have happened. Pocchama's bubblebeams cause smoke and explosions, Ariados' sludge when it hit the ground caused fire to erupt, Pocchama flew a tiny bit above the ground shooting bubblebeams at Seviper, Cacnea and Dustox and that somehow caused them to get damaged heavily.

    Considering the writers seem to be ignoring Team Galaxy and don't even want to introduce them, they have to make JJ&M a tad more violent than usual to make it seem like they're under a real threat.
    To be fair TG doesnt appear till after the first gym badge and then in nearly every town. If appear in a blue moon and they only show up about as often as TM/TA did then I'd say ignoring them. Also TR isnt being more violent at all remember the Kanto days. Remember all the times when they'd throw bombs at Ash & co. Remember Squirtle's episode when the Squirtle Squad betrayed TR and TR dropped bombs down at Squirtle and it couldnt get up so Super Ash had to run back and save it.

    So it looks like Ash is getting pokemon one after the another again. Interesting.

    He won't be making another capture for a long time, so get used to this team of 4.

    Aww - I love Naetle, lol. I think I may pick him as my starter on Diamond and Pochama on Pearl.

    LOL - there's that Team Rocket in a Magikarp ship again, lol..I was wondering when that was going to return. (I wonder when Team Galaxy will ever be brought in to the series...what exactly are their "evil" plans?)

    Aww - Ash immediately ran to the Linoone, he showed Hikari how he cares for Wild Pokémon

    This was a good episode - even though I already knew Ash was going to get Naetle from the opening ~ it's sorta Cliche, but atleast Naetle doesn't act stuckup like Treecko did.

    Aw, I think Naetle's pretty cool. It's clear he doesn't trust Ash at first(I think he thought Ash was wth TR. That, or he didn't really trust humans.), but once he convinces Naetle that Pikachu is his Pokémon, he 'Naetle's what is pretty much Poké-speak for "gomennasai...;_;". Kawaii~ ^^ He also seems to have a bit of a justice issue, as the dispute with Geodude and Mankey showed.XD

    Poor Ash, he temporarily forgets twice that he's in the water in order to tell Pikachu to Thunderbolt and Iron Tail.XD Also, he's gonna have a Psyduck-sized headache if Naetle keeps biting him on the head like that!

    Jesus, upon watching this episode again, Hikari and Brock were awfully bland in this episode.

    Hikari is acting like May at the worst point of her run, when she was somewhat bland in the fillers of BF. Jeez, it isn't a good sign when we're only 5 episodes in and Hikari reminds you of the blandness of Johto Misty and filler episode May.

    She showed a lot of spunk and promise in D/P #1-3, what the hell happened to it?

    Naetle was so damn adorable. It seemed to project a wide range of emotions - being tough when trying to protect Pikachu from Rocket Gang, showing guilt when he finds out that Satoshi is Pikachu's trainer (it beat the crap out of him when he was trying to get Pikachu back...), and showed its appreciation by biting Satoshi's head...in appreciation! ;P I admit that this episode seemed to remind me alot of the episode where Satoshi caught Fushigidane (maybe because it's a grass type starter, and it originally belonged to someone else?), though. But really, personality-wise, he's actually nothing like Fushigidane (Fushigidane was protrayed as a tough protector of orphaned Pokemon when it was introduced. Naetle is more of an energetic, emotional, "I'll act tough because I want to" kind of Pokemon). I guess I liked the battle at the end (Naetle seems to be a good and capable fighter. I think it's kind of interesting that Satoshi has a Pokemon that knows a recovery move, Synthesis, in his party now).

    ...AND I'VE HAD IT WITH THESE F*CKING RANDOM EXPLOSIONS. ;_;



    :\
    Thank you that was by far the lamest freakin excuse for an explosion in the history of the anime

    i thought that the use was synthesis was cool though considering its a first for ash

    hate how they totally copied bulbasaurs capture shows they're running out of ideas plus the fact that pikachu seemed completely helpless in the beginning sucked 2

    Naetle will be cool when it evolves, but right now, its nothing but a poor mans Bulbasaur.

    And I see Ash's flying type keeps up the tradition of having zero personality. Jesus Christ, and its already going to pop TR's balloon.

    Thank god that thing evolves twice.

    Mukkuru actually showed some emotion in this episode. Which is more than I can say for the other birds.

    Also, I never remember Bulbasaur having Bite.

    All the birds have had that 'OSNAP!' expression of surprisitude before, so it's not like our little drain-bamaged fowl is faring any better than Ash's other feathered friends thus far. Try saying that 5 times fast!

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to GET NAETORU!™

    What ever happened to Swellow being spoken of as having been treated best out of Ash's birds in terms of battle time and personality?

    I don't recall people ever claiming that Swellow had a great personality. Just that it was an excellent battler and was actually treated as a strong Pokemon unlike Pidgeot and Noctowl.

    Pretty standard capture episode, I liked the iron tail on the tree in the battle even though I expected it, it still looked damn cool. I am glad Naetoru has the ability to be the next Sceptile.

    Naetoru is awesome. Ash seems to like the Grass Type Starters.
