    Caterpie evolved pretty fast, similar to in the games. And Samurai is now on my list of people who I want to return.

    I do love the episodes that seem to have a real purpose, meaning they wanted metapod to somehow to get to butterfree and having him in a no-win/no lose battle was the perfect way to do it.

    I liked how once Samurai took off his armour he was clearly just a bug catcher...

    I dunno why, but I really liked when he was talking about battling Gary and the others... He says something like "those were three spectacular matches", and the pictures they showed made it seem like the others' starters were all top notch.

    Beedrill rocks too. I liked how they managed to break holes in his cabin, but yet stopped trying to get in...

    This episode cracked me up, when Ash and the Samurai had a Metapod battle, all it could do was harden so no-one was ever going to win.

    Heh, Samurai... always calling Ash "novice" XD

    They spent an entire day trying to see whose Metapod could harden more. terrible innuendo, anyone? *shot*

    But I'm glad Metapod evolved ^_^ Butterfree is awesome! Episode is definitely a classic.

    I liked the metapod vs metapod. Back in the day, this was how I found out that metapod evolved. I also remember not knowing what a novice was. When I found out, it made a lot more sense.

    The funnyest part of that episode is Metapod Vs. Metapod battle. I died laughing when I saw Ash and Samurai falling

    Samurai is a joke. First he tries to kill Ash with that sword than said it was Ash's fault that weedle got away, then he blames him for leaving metapod when a swarm of bees tries to kill him. He's the worst character.

    My ideal battle ever!

    I must agree that some of his antics were a bit ridiculous. Samurai probably is one of my least favorite characters of the day. I mean, they didn't even bother to give Samurai a real name!

    Aside from my complaints about the character of the day, this episode was okay, but a little on the boring side. However, I did think the Metapod battle was pretty funny. All in all, this episode was alright, but definintly nowhere near one of my favorites.

    Even though Samurai was a not so good character, I thought his Pincer was awesome. Why he only used it in one battle I'll never know.
    But Butterfree was awesome, and I like how they made the evolutions more realistic in this episode.

    The battle between Metapod & Metapod was.....interesting. Lol. I also found it amusing that Misty & Pikachu took advantage of it by sun-tanning. Haha. IMO, the Samurai was a great first trainer for Ash. IIRC, Ash won, no? & by the way, it freaked me out the way Metapod evolved 0_o I remember when I was little, I thought it was broken & died. Lol, but then it transformed into a beautiful Butterfree xD

    I give this episode a:
    7/10

    Did Ash and the samurai actually think that the battle between the two Metapods was actually going somewhere? It was a good thing they didn't try to finish that fight. They'd still be fighting to this day if they had, but the Metapod's would be stronger than diamonds.

    I loved this episode.

    So far, i think Kanto and DP have the best episodes, but Kanto has something that DP dont have, that is nostalgia and more importantly great characters. They NEED to bring Samurai, AJ and Giselle back. Seriously. Atleast an episode. And i believe its not impossible thanks to everything going on in DP. And Duplica, even though she appeared in Johto once.

    But DP has Paul

    The Samurai, who apparently had no other name and therefore kept that nickname, was annoying. With his Metapod not being able to attack, it was just a stall tactic.

    Loved that Ash's Metapod was "bug-napped" by a Beedrill and taken to it's nest. Those Kakuna were scary though. They could still see even in their cocoon state.

    Great evolution at the end though 7/10

    Yeah then battle between their Metapod was really strange... they even didn't move so I don't know how the battle was over. if they were standing there hours the battle was never ends.

    lol, worse battle ever. Two Metapods. That had the potential to go on forever.

    Seriously, who actually battles using a Metapod, Kakuna, Silcoon, or Cascoon? They can't use any physical attacks in the game unless you catch them as their stage 1 forms and evolve them, and in the show it seems they don't even have that luxury.

    This episode was kind of funny to me, mainly because of the FAIL that was the Metapod vs. Metapod battle. I also liked the flashbacks and for the longest time I was trying to figure out which starter was Gary's.

    Me too! Then I remembered that it was squirtle! I loved this episode. Misty and Pikachu getting bored during the Metapod vs Metapod battle. When butterfree came out of that shell, it was pretty epic.

    When I first saw this episode when it was dubbed in English, I thought that metapod had died when I saw that huge crack haha.
