    Heh, I remember seeing this episode a very long time ago and actually thinking that Pikachu would actually leave Ash... as if.

    I think this could be considered one of Pokemon's rare sentimental episodes along with Butterfree's and Misty's departure episodes. I wonder how Ash would be now if Pikachu actually left him... Not too good, I believe....

    I remember crying through all of the episode, thinking he was going to leave. It made me so sad. It's one of my favorite episodes of the entire series.

    This is the only episode of "Pokémon" my sister ever cried at. I, however, never shed a tear because I knew Pikachu wasn't goin' anywhere.

    Another touching episode, I liked it. The song was exceptionally good as well(not to mention touching).

    I really thought Pikachu was leaving for good...foolish Ash. He wanted to leave Pikachu on purpose.

    This was a pretty good episode, but I do wish Pikachu would have left for awhile. That way they could make a bigger deal out of it. ^^

    Oh yes...and how could I forget? This is also the episode that throws the whole "Pikachu being Pichu" first out of the loop.

    this is the first episode that made me cry in the series. Mewtwo Strikes Back almost made me cry, and...well...that's it, but this is the first one out of all that made me cry.

    After I first saw it, I used to not watch it because it made me so sad, even though I knew Pikachu was staying.

    Brock seemed like such an insenstive jerk to me. Misty too. The comments they made saying it would be better for Pikachu get on my nerves everytime I hear them.

    The song was nice, and I loved the Pikachu, especially at the end.

    Lightbulb Pathos

    Anyone acquainted with the works of Charlie Chaplin is well aware of how pathos is a prime aspect of any of his works. Pathos is a classic plot device that sets a story far above the ordinary. It is leaven to the bread, so to speak. Again, we see classic elements from Japanese theatre cast in a whole new setting. This should be required viewing for anyone considering a career in film-making.

    This HAS to be the most pointless episodes ever. I hate any episode that CONFIRMS something will never, ever happen. Pikachu leaving OR evolving, Bulbasaur evolving etc.
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

    The first proper chapter will be posted in October, shortly after the release of XY.

    My eyes were dry the first time I saw this episode. Ironically, years later, when I found the old tape with this on it, it made me tear up a bit mostly out of nostalgia. Yeah, that's pretty cheesy, but it happened.:P

    The part that gets me isn't the little song that plays while Ash is running through the forest, but after he stops and Misty and Brock cath up with him. When Pikachu's shadow comes up next to him and he looks up to see him standing on the hill with the sun rising dramatically behind him. Not only is that a touching moment, but the music that plays there is great, and I'm a sucker for the music, especially in these old Kanto eps.:P

    Also interesting to note James' comment as they're stealing the Pikachu. "Your electricity is no match for our Pikachu-proof seizure net!" Pretty funny considering this was the first episode to air after "A.I. Warrior Porygon".XP I also liked how Ash was imitating Tommy from the safari zone at the beginning of the episode.XD

    I like is because it was the first time you give to hear a pokemon song "the Time has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye)
    I close my eyes
    And I can see
    The day we met
    Just one moment and I knew
    You're my best friend
    'Do anything
    For you

    We've gone so far
    And done so much
    And I feel
    Like we've always been together
    Right by my side
    Through thick and thin
    You're the part of my life
    I'll always remember

    The time has come
    It's for the best I know it
    Who would've guessed that you and I...
    Somehow, someday
    We'd have to say goodbye

    You've helped me find
    The strength inside
    And the courage
    To make my dreams come true
    How will I find
    Another friend
    Like you

    Two of a kind
    That's what we are
    And it seemed
    Like we were always winning
    But as our team
    Is torn apart
    I wish we could go
    Back to the beginning

    The time has come
    It's for the best I know it
    Who could've guessed that you and I...
    Somehow, some way
    We'd have to say goodbye

    Somehow today...
    ...we have to say goodbye

    Post Pikachu!!!

    This episode was one of the most sensible and sad episodes of all, but of corse could not possible leave Ash, it's his best friend, his partner and of course at the end I was not surprised that returned, Ash and Pikachu will be friends forever!!

    keh the thing didn't make me sad nor cry at all in fact the whole episode was predictable from beginning to end. The day Pikachu leaves Ash is the day pigs have wings. Second IF Pikachu did leave Ash I don't think he'd be the same person again. This kid can't make it without that little yellow rat. Third IF Pikachu left ratings would plummet. IMO neither one of them are good without the other. Ratings would go down either way if Satoshi/Ash or Pikachu left. Their just a team.

    HEh, I remember watching this episode the very first time I saw it. Sentimental, but I knew that Pikachu wasn't goin' anywhere.

    My brother, however, cried his eyes out. Which is quite strange considering he thinks he's so tough and everything.

    If I know Ash/Satoshi he might've had the intention of leaving Pikachu but you know he'd probably end up going back for Pikachu even if it didn't show up at that moment. You saw how he ran through the forest and then stopped. I don't think he could bring himself to leave that forest or ever leave Pikachu for good. He might be able to make it without Misty and Brock as we've seen but can he make it without Pikachu? I think not.

    I've watched this episode before awhile ago , when Ash left Pikachu and he ran after him I thought he was going to leave Pikachu there I found it said but was quite happy at the end when they were back together.

    This episode didn't make me cry, because I already knew ash was going to keep Pikachu.
    Although I like Pikachu I hate this song, since it's just another of this "OMG WE CAN'T SEE EACH OTHER ANYMORE AND THIS IS SOOO SAD" crap.
