    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.

    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.
