    Maybe it was because at that time, the writers may not have expected the anime to air outside Japan yet. Which might have caused some language barriers when the dub translators translated it to English but I thought the 'cowterpie' thing was really irrelevant because Ash's Caterpie had already evolved and also about the pun, 'bug' doesn't even close to 'cow'.

    Yea and I think 4kids should've prolly skipped that scene cuz it wouldn't have made much sense no matter what they tried to do.

    I think he was too formal and serious for a kid, tho I guess that was because of his samurai theme or something ha ha. :3

    Lmao so Ash's Metapod versus Samurai's Metapod ended up as a stalemate. I liked how Metapod evolved by breaking through his cocoon as a Butterfree since that looked awesome at least.

    I thought that the Kakuna evolution scenes were awesome back when I was a kid. The Weedle were harmless but those Beedrill were like serial killers. 8/10

    My favorite scene was when Ash fought Samurai and how Metapod vs. Metapod went nowhere. Also Team Rocket's cocoons were ridiculous.

    It was nice to see more of the Tokiwa Forest, and it seemed like Kasumi's insect phobia was a recurrent theme. Samurai lacked personality, but I liked his stalemate match with Satoshi. Transel's evolution happened much faster than anticipated, but I thought Butterfree saving the day was a great climax.

    This was a good episode, but I really didn't like that Samurai kid. Like, he's the one that made Metapod get captured, just like Ash said, if he never had stopped Ash from catching Weedle, none of that would have happened. :x
