    I couldn't help but laugh when Junsa drove Satoshi to Tokiwa City's Pokemon Center, and when Kasumi appeared in the lobby carrying her broken bicycle. The Rocket-dan seemed so menacing here, and I liked how despite her anger at Satoshi, Kasumi was willing to help out against the Rocket-dan with her Tosakinto.

    I liked this episode, but it wasn't great. I felt bad for Pikachu in the emergency room and Team Rocket broke in and caused havoc even when Pikachu was hurt, it seemed wrong. Team Rocket seemed so much more sinister in this episode then how they are now it's amazing!

    Lol, yep. TR seemed evil here, not all spazzy and incompetent like later on. I don't know why Shudo decided to change them after this episode.

    I didn't notice this when I watched the episode the first time, but when Ash's mom tells him she loves him, he responds with "me too". I thought that was pretty weird, but I got a chuckle out of that for some reason.

    Funny how Ash's dad was only mentioned in passing here, yet fans keep thinking he has relevance and will show up eventually...

    Lol, Ash was so conceited back in Kanto.

    The Rocket-dan acting like genuine villains here was what I liked the best, especially since they managed to corner Satoshi, Kasumi, and Joi on their own, and they would've succeeded in stealing all the Pokemon in the Pokemon Center if Satoshi hadn't charged up his Pikachu with the help of those other Pikachu.

    I still don't get why the Pokemon Center even kept those Pikachu in reserve.

    I also believe that Delia doesn't want to reveal that Ash's father is really the boss of Team Rocket, Giovanni, because she is ashamed of this fact.

    If this turns out to be the case, then a lot of things would change - you don't steal from the boss's kid for instance.

    They were the PC's back up generators.

    I don't think she was purposely hiding anything regarding the identity of Satoshi's father in this episode, though. The fact that she only mentioned him once kind of proves that Satoshi's dad was never going to be important.

    Funny how menacing the TRio was here, then suddenly they turned silly. When Ash was sitting in the waiting room, I didn't get why he misidentified that Articuno painting.

    Jenny and Joy were both awesome here and I'm confused about how Ash mixed up Articuno and Ho-Oh. I get that he was a noob but it just seems a little odd.

    Houou looked incredibly similar to Freezer in the wall mural that Satoshi saw in the lobby, so he can't be faulted too much for his mistake given his inexperience here.

    They're not that similar but fine. I guess I should be more curious about why Nurse Joy knew about the Legendary Birds since she had the painting on the wall.

    Just because she's the nurse doesn't mean she has any say in the architecture.

    And the bad cave drawing of Articuno did vaguely resemble Ho-Oh was Leon's point? Not that the actual Pokemon are similar.

    This was a pretty important episode. We're introduced to Team Rocket who will end outlasting both Misty and Brock all the way to the current Sun and Moon series and Misty joins the party under the pretense that Ash owes her a new bike. We're also introduced to the marxist wet dream Pokemon center and Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy.

    Speaking of Team Rocket they get a bit of early installment weirdness here. While still a bit of a joke especially in their defeat they act more serious than they will later on. Two of the three members will also get new voices in the English dub (though honestly Nathan Price and Maddie Blaustein sound similar) Meowth has this verbal tic of saying Meoooowth after every sentence that gets dropped I think after this one episode? And Meowth acts like the leader even though that will later default to Jessie.

    And how dumb is Team Rocket for thinking Pikachu was special when it was clearly getting a power boost from Ash right in front of them?

    There's a bit of dumb localization where 4kids ignores that Professor Oak is cooking ramen right on screen and says he's ordering a pizza. Stupid because ramen is incredibly common in America so its not like kids wouldn't know what it is.

    Giving this episode B+ for being more developed than the first episode though the show doesn't really get into the groove just yet.
