    I'm pretty sure that was heavily implied, especially when we saw Caterpie imagine itself flying as a Butterfree during that interaction scene with Pikachu.

    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.

    Well Pidgeotto was weak from his match with Pikachu so that's prolly why he didn't do so well. And looking back Ekans and Koffing were kind of impressive and competent here. ^^;

    Yeah, it was pretty awesome to see Team Rocket's Pokémon battling so well. I also think it was impressive how Caterpie was able to hold its own like that.

    Yes, I was happy too and I totally didn't expect Caterpie to be that sturdy against Team Rocket's Pokémon.

    I had just forgotten that early Team rocket was good at keeping up with Ash's pokemon at first and I kind of miss times like these when they didn't just lose to Pikachu in five seconds and actually held their own.

    But the point was to show that Caterpie wasn't what he seemed and portray him as a useful Pokemon rather than a weak little insect....

    Caterpie was interesting since he showed personality here as well as a dream. Pidgeotto on the other hand...

    Well that's true, not that I dislike Pidgeotto tho. He just wasn't as interesting as Caterpie mostly because Caterpie was handled as the star and the one we had to root for.

    My favorite scene was when Misty tried petting Caterpie and he just began spitting silk and evolved and scared her to death.

    Good episode, but man, poor Kasumi. She had to endure a forest filled with insects. When Satoshi succeeded in catching Caterpie, I thought he was done catching Pokemon for the time being, but then he captured Pigeon. The Rocket-dan being sillier here was enjoyable, too.

    Pokemon Episode 3: "Ash Catches a Pokemon"
    Wow, the title was fulfilled 10 seconds in! That must be some kinda record
    He caught it! Now it's enslaved for the end of time! Some hero.
    ** Pikachu fainting from watching them.
    Nice use of dripping purple backgrounds. Very avant-garde.
    * Misty's facial expressions
    Caterpie doesn't seem to have a mouth. That's kinda strange. Or maybe it's perpetually open.
    ** Ash's facial expression was also funny.
    Pikachu comforting Caterpie was pretty cute.
    Wow, such a deep, meaningful conversation. If only I knew what they were saying.
    Like the artistic, hand-painted backgrounds.
    Wow, Ash's gonna catch TWO Pokemon! The title lied.
    * More great facial expressions with Ash.
    Yay, I got it right!
    Woot, the classic "replay the last 5 seconds before the commercial break".
    ** Great battle scene, the first of it's kind!
    Yay, Ash enslaved a second helpless animal!
    * Pikachu's random screamed "PIKA-CHUUU!"
    * The gang beating up Meowth
    Why doesn't Caterpie say it's name? All the others do.
    Classic anime split-screen.
    Wow, they just used the same animation they used 15 minutes ago.
    ** Another great battle scene.
    * "We're gonna get a Pokemon"
    Another classic anime technique, repeating the same scene over and over!
    Wow, Caterpie evolves into Metapod. It's pretty ugly.
    Closing Thoughts:
    A great episode!
    The story was great. Ash catches two Pokemon, a Caterpie and a Pidgeotto, and battles Team Rocket who try to catch his Pikachu (A major first!). Misty doesn't like Caterpie, though. Fast-moving, exciting, and lacking filler.
    The action was top-notch, both scenes were great.
    The humor was excellent, funny facial expressions and cutaway gags aplenty.
    Overall, the best one i've seen! 8.5/10.

    Was it really an excuse? Because her anger over Pikachu frying said bicycle seemed genuine to me.

    I got the jist of what Caterpie and Pikachu were talking about at night, but I think it would have been better if subtitles were provided, but that probably wouldn't add to the mystery of Pokemon. The two things I really loved in this episode were Pidgeotto eating a real worm and Caterpie's evolution.

    Good episode. I liked how Ash caught two Pokemon of different species in one episode. I also liked the fact Pikachu had to weaken Pidgeotto before Ash could catch him. Misty was rude to Caterpie, but at least he evolved. Too bad both Pikachu and Pidgeotto lost to Team Rocket's Pokemon.

    Misty freaking out over bug types is always hilarious. I also liked the bickering that went on in this episode as well as Ash catching 2 Pokémon and then having 1 of them evolve all in the same episode.

    Well, I guess you have a point, lol. Still, I think that the fact that she traveled with him for so long after the fact is kinda funny.

    I loved how we saw Ash catch Caterpie and its scene at night with Pikachu was cute even if we didn't understand what was being said, though I assume that Caterpie wanted to evolve.

    The night scene was pretty much one of the most adorable things in the anime. You don't even need to understand what they're saying. Caterpie clearly has dreams of flying one day and the Moon also seems rather important to it. Pikachu is fully supportive of Caterpie as well.
