    All capture and evolution episodes in every season are my favorites, along with Gym Leader battles. This was my favorite pokemon capture episode! 1 thing I wasn't happy about, was it was stereotyping girls as hating/fearful of bugs. Overall great episode. 80/100.

    I loved Ash's reaction after he caught Caterpie. He was outrageously happy. ^_^
    And Caterpie was so cute in this episode, it was probably the first time I ever considered a bug cute. =)

    The only thing I didn't like about this episode was its totally unoriginal dub name.

    rofl James's voice is so menacing compared to what it is now.

    Man, when Misty was yelling at Ash about how he wasn't using strategy...
    You could tell he was on the verge of tears, just by the tension in his voice. :S

    She chilled out after a while, but Misty was really mean back then.


    Also I miss Caterpie. :<
    Ash carrying a totally apathetic Metapod in his backpack at the end amused me.

    Misty being freaked out by the Caterpie makes me feel bad for the Pokemon. Look at its cute face? Even though I don't like caterpillars, I still feel bad for it.

    I love Ash's animation when he's having a rant at Misty and says 'mouth'. It's a brief shot but it's hilarious. Still cracks me up after 12 years!!!

    I'm rewatching pokemon from the beginning. God, Veronica Taylor sounded horrible as Ash back then. And I forgot that Eric Stuart isn't James for a while. He's too menacing and doesn't sound camp at all!!! *cries*

    I still would like to know what and were talking about that night.
    And I thought Caterpie was cute. Misty's such a scaredy-Meowth.

    In all, excellent episode.

    Caterpie should have used String Shot on Misty and then left her there.

    This was such a great episode. Ash catches Caterpie and Pidgeotto, and we even get to see the show's first evolution. Team Rocket's presence automatically makes it an even better episode, of course. ^_^

    Caterpie (Butterfree) is the only bug Pokemon I love, which is largely down to this episode. The fact that it was Ash's first catch makes this episode so incredible that no other capture can compete IMO.

    I didn't remember Caterpie being so cute in this episode but I couldn't stop thinking how cute it was. Misty being mean to me actually has me hating her a little right now but it'll pass. Anyway, I liked this episode mainly because of Caterpie's capture and it's battle with Pidgeotto. Seeing Misty lecture Ash about Pokémon battling was pretty funny.

    I like how cute this episode is with Caterpie being all sad and Pikachu comforting him. Misty sure was mean to it. We also see how much of a bad master Ash is by sending in Caterpie on Pidgeotto when he has a Pikachu. But he still manages to catch it. o: 2 Pokemon in one episode! And yay Team Rocket again. =D
    I don't understand why Misty didn't use her Pokemon to help Ash out. She never catches Starmie or Staryu if I remember correctly so that means she always had them. And I'm sure Starmie could have easily taken care of Ekans and Koffing.
    This episode also teaches us an important lesson. The move String Shot is broken. o:

    The scene where he looks directly in the camera, which is in the PokeRAP is really cute too.

    This episode title is so misleading. It should be: Ash Catches Two Pokemon And Then One Evolves.

    The dub cut out the best scene in the episode.

    If anyone remembers this scene:


    I watched the sub online some time ago...and loved that scene.

    But other than that, I liked the rest of the episode. Ash gets his Pidgeotto.

    Dub gets a 7/10 for the cut scene.

    Sub gets an 8/10.
    Help Staryu, will you?

    I have claimed Houndoom.

    I never realised she slapped him in the Japanese version. That was fun to watch. lol
    Misty is a bit extreme with how she treats Caterpie in this episode, it is so small and cute after all. And I agree it was fun to watch Pikachu and Caterpie being good buddies. The way Ash catches the Caterpie was boring...

    The episode was ok. I like Pidgeotto, but that's about it... The rest is Misty yelling at Ash and Caterpie, and then Team Rocket come along. 6/10

    I remember this. Good to see Ash catch is first Pokemon. I also liked the part where Team Rocket is walking in a cardboard van, I laughed at them for being mad at Meowth.

    Ha, String Shot is one of the worst moves ever, yet it was the move that saved the day. Go figure. How can Ekans and Koffing even breathe like that?

    Here, we return to Ash after he successfully catches Caterpie, and subsequently Misty reveals her fear of Bug-Types. Ash tries to use it to catch a Pidegotto, but it's too weak and Pikachu ends up finishing the job. Team Rocket shows up and cripples Pikachu, forcing Ash to use his new Pidgetto which, while strong, ends up losing because the fight was 2-on-1. Caterpie saves the day with a great combination of String Shot and Tackle, and at the end of the episode evolves into Metapod.

    8.7/10
