Actually, the animation in this episode impresses me. The opening transformation from game/to cartoon is cool, as is the scene where the camera zooms in on Spearow's eye. Today, stuff like that would be done with computers, but when this was made, it had to be done by hand. That impresses me.

This is a great episode if you consider it is the first one. It introduces Pokemon in a marvelous way. Quality is the only problem, but it is still good if you consider the time it was designed.
-Why is Marill also fairy type?
-Because it is in fairy group.
-Okay, then Pikachu will be electric/fairy type.
-Hum... no, Pikachu no.
-And all the 'mons in dragon group will be also dragon type.
I like the start of this episode. The first time I watched this pokémon episode I had no idea what the theme song had to do with it
Pokémon Emerald Forever Team:
Ah, when this show wasn't a cyclic, repetitive, annoying, painful, somewhat nostalgic, and fond memory to me.
I loved it. Everything about it. The intro, the voices, the acting: I really could immerse myself in the Pokémon world and I had such fun.
Veronica Taylor's Ash voice is the only complaint I have looking back, but it's a moot point, considering after about 14 episodes she really settled in and became excellent at the voice. The acting behind the voice is superb and more than makes up for it, though.
Her Delia voice was perfect and motherly (in sharp contrast to the voice Sarah has given her in the TPCi dub, which even now, is simply terrible).
Rachael Lillis' Misty was awesome. Nothing else to be said.
Stuart Zagnit perfectly complemented Professor Oak to me.
