    Watched the dub version and the sub version again.

    The only notable changes were the riceballs/onigiri being called eclairs and stuff (I lol'ed at this for some reason), bombs being called blaster balls (eh, good enough for me-- silly change, but meh), and Misty's hair color being threatened to be colored purple instead of death (biggest change, but I think it was funny).

    4Kids kept the guns intact, which was nice.

    Aside from that, the voice acting was great in the dub and the sub, the script writing was awesome in both versions, and overall this was a very good and enjoyable episode.

    Sub: 99.2/100
    Dub: 91.5/100

    I find it stupid but funny at the same time that the big threat was Misty's hair turning purple, she can wash it out!

    Still, I think this was the best of the starter Pokemon episodes.
    So much credit to Sworn Metalhead for the banner!

    In Japan, the threat is Misty getting killed.

    Wow, the dubs took the threat of Misty getting killed out, but left in the guns pointed at ash. Wow.

    Yikes!

    When I saw James holding a gun, I was thinking "Um... James is holding an assault rifle, why?"
    Then more weaponry was shown, then some bombs. That was quite a bit of artillery shown in a (approximate) minute-and-a=half time frame.

    Neat that Ash get's his final starter Pokemon, giving him a full team of six Pokemon.

    I liked how the Squirtle Squad went after Team Rocket's food and that Meowth negotiated with them to set him free. I thought that the scene where Pikachu was attacked by a wild Goldeen was so contrived though. Gary's cameo was neat though, as was seeing actual rifles in the show. I'm surprised 4Kids kept them in.

    I'm extremely glad that this episode wasn't banned in the US, otherwise I would not have been happy at all. I didn't care too much about the presence of weaponry anyway, since I was mainly focused on the Squirtle Squad the whole time for the most part.

    After all, they partially swayed my choice of which Kanto Starter I was going for back in the good old days, even though I was aiming for Squirtle at the very beginning in the first place.

    I thought the Squirtle squad was really disrespectful and I was upset that they teamed up with Team rocket but hey at least we saw them turn over a new leaf by the end when they stopped that wildfire that Team rocket caused.

    Never really found this episode particularly enjoyable. The good thing was that it introduced Squirtle, one of Ash's most iconic pokemon, and he was captured here so the episode was good in that regard.

    Line of the day: "These are ice packs we're gunning, I mean ice guns we're packing."

    The Squirtles were really rude and messed up but given their pasts I don't blame em too much. They were just acting out to get attention.

    Well I know they got abandoned by their trainers but I didn't think that was a good excuse for holding Misty hostage and stealing from people. ^^

    Well the point is they are distrusting of humans, so if they don't trust humans to help them, they obviously wouldn't go and ask politely for something they would need; they would resort to stealing right away.

    What I liked about this episode is that it debuted the Squirtle Squad, which Ash caught the Leader later. The Squirtle Squad was fairly troublesome in this episode, otherwise, nothing much.

    That sounds true I guess I was just upset that they assumed every human was bad, but thinking back their experiences with humans must've been really traumatic so it's understandable I suppose.
