    This is probably my favourite episode of the entire Pokémon anime because it's the ep where Ash obtains Pikachu, the ep that begins the Pokémon anime and where he fails to capture a Pidgey.

    Since Pikachu clearly didn't want to go with Ash,why didn't he make run for it after shocking everyone outside while he had the chance?
    Surely he could have got away before anyone recovered.

    Maybe secretly he did want to go with Ash, but Pikachu has been hurt in past relationships so he didn't want to open himself up to heartbreak again.

    When I watched it, I was quite confused how sudden Pikachu liked Ash from disliking him. Such as being laughed at when failing to catch Pidgey and then hugging (I think) him at the end and seeing Ho-Oh.

    I re-watched this recently and I wondered, do you think the anime would be better if the dex had kept up all its snarkiness? Like Dizzi from the original and early Beyblade or something. I mean it was quite a fun character but after a while insulting ash might be too cruel a running joke

    This first episode of the anime was awesome especially when Ash met Pikachu since they didn't get along at all ha ha. The Spearow chase scene on the bicycle was intense and the music that played when the flock charged at Ash was gorgeous.

    I actually really enjoy this episode and it premiered your first Jhoto Pokémon, Ho-Oh, before they even knew it. To this day is my favorite legendary. The quote in my biography is straight from this episode, when he yells at the Spearow. Definitely the beginning of something great.

    I was surprised when Ho-oH flew by cuz it wasn't native to Kanto. I recently found out that it was designed already by the time this episode aired however which is cool. :3

    I would say probably not. I tend to find gags funnier when they only happen once or a few times. Plus I don't think one gag would be enough to "make the anime better".

    I think maybe, in moderation, it would be better. If it was done too much, then the dex wouldn't be a very enjoyable part of the anime. I think the instance in this episode was alright enough, because it was pretty brief.

    Good 1st episode of the show. I loved how Ash overslept and Pikachu being Ash's last resort as a starter was hilarious. Pikachu was such a brat though.

    Yea there were even times when I really disliked how he acted toward Ash here, although I found his design much more appalling. I prefer the current slim Pikachu over the fatter design used here. ^^;

    I really liked the design of Pikachu here. I have nothing against the newer look, but I think that Pikachu looks much cuter when it's chubby

    I also don't like the way it acted toward Ash here, though. I thought that it was completely unnecessary, especially since Ash did absolutely nothing wrong to Pikachu.

    I might've thought he looked cute if he had acted cutely at least, but just seeing him be defiant and obstinate with Ash didn't exactly help in my opinion hee hee. I'm probably just nitpicking tho. ^^;

    Yeah, even Pikachu was a bit of a nuisance here, refusing to get into its Poké Ball, electrocuting Ash and laughing at Ash's failures. Or I'll consider the possibility that he just started as a Trainer and didn't have much experience.

    He was a brat because no other trainer had picked him as a Starter. Clearly he had trust issues and behavioral issues due to that.

    That's prolly it and Oak did show reluctance in letting Ash get Pikachu hee hee. And tho this is a minor thing, I liked how Pikachu's Poke ball had a lightning bolt symbol on it here. :3
