This episode was basically just a big argument in a forest and little more. Admittedly the argument was comical but watching this episode could make one bored easily. Pidgeotto and Caterpie were caught in this episode which was good. They weren't terribly interesting members of Ash's team, but it was good to see him slowly improving his catching skills.
Before this episode, I didn't really expect Ash to catch a Pidgeotto in that episode but did expect him to catch a Caterpie.

I loved how Ash caught Caterpie here and that Misty was scared of it ha ha. Caterpie's scene at night with Pikachu was so cute plus I liked that Caterpie fought Team rocket on his own and won while Pikachu was incapacitated. ^^
I wonder why there aren't more examples of the Pokemon food chain outside of OS. We know it exists, because Pidgeotto tried to eat Caterpie here.
This was a cute episode with Ash catching two new Pokémon and evolving one. I really like how Ash is maturing and seeing what being a Pokémon trainer is really about.
Also, I love how Misty blatantly makes up the bike excuse just to travel with Ash. I found that pretty funny.
It kind of sucked that Pidgeotto was the fall guy for Caterpie here. I wish he had defeated the TRio instead of a weak little insect doing that.
My favorite scene was when Misty tried petting Caterpie and he just began spitting silk and evolved and scared her to death.
