    One word: Ketchup! XD

    Pikachu showing it's undying love for Ketchup was enough to make this episode memorable in my opinion. XD I also loved the whole "Tom Ato, Caesar Salad, and Ann Covy" scene. *lol* Great times...

    I can't believe I was once so naive thinking that Ash would get a Gym Badge in this episode. I was very surprised that the Nurse Joy was actually the Pokemon League Inspector - that was a nice twist. The best part was all the ketchup references; Pikachu's love for that bottle of ketchup was hilarious - too bad that it was never mentioned again.

    It was good episode.

    They have had Pikachu eating ketchup a few times since then, one episode in particular that I can remember is "Air Time", but I know they've done it in AG too. Anyway, this is one of my favorite episodes. This particluar period in Kanto produced some really good ones. Both Elactabuzz and Scyther made their debut in this one, and that's saying something because they're really cool pokémon. The ketchup thing was hilarious, and it was really cool to see Brock use Vulpix since it was severely neglected most of the time. The Nurse Joy inspecting the two gyms for the pokémon legue was a cool idea, and I actually didn't see it coming. The fight between the Yas and Kas gyms was cool, and I thought the animation on Pikachu's thunder attack was really awesome. There's also so much comedy in this episode, like Ash saying his name was Tom Ato.XD I also like Ash's lecture to the Yas and Kas gym leaders. It was something like this:

    Ash: You battle with all your strength trying to win.
    Kas Gym Leader: With all your strength? Isn't that the same as fighting?
    Ash: No, it's completely different. Of course you try to win, but you don't try to beat each other!
    Gym Leaders: Huh?

    I thought this episode was so funny too. The name switching scene made me so confused when I first saw it. I'm a little slow at jokes until I realized what they said and I carcked up. piachu's love for Ketchup was funny too, with his eyes=XD.

    It was nice seeing how they tried explaining how one becomes a Gym Leader. Not to mention, Electabuzz's voice was incredibly hilarious. @_@

    I love Scyther and Electabuzz! This is the BEST Season 1 ep, and definitely a top ten favourite!
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

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

    Yes! One of my favorite episodes ever.

    Yup, Pikachu and his ketchup was great.

    Nice names too.

    I felt sorry for the restaurant owner when he was being harassed by Team Rocket.

    It was cool when Ash lectured the Yas Gym owner, then as he was leaving he thought, "That was dramatic", but then tripped and said, "That was pathetic"

    I loved Electabuzz's voice too.

    The Yas Gym is so much cooler than the Kas Gym. Yup...

    I didn't expect Nurse Joy either.

    This was the first episode I saw and it got me so interested at the end when Team Rocket got trapped by Scyther and Electabuzz. Made me want to see the next episode but thenat that time I never knew every episode was "To be Continued.."

    This is another early episode that I can't stand. Yes, the ketchup bit is cute, and the "aliases" are pretty funny (Caesar Salad LOL ), but apart from that I really don't like it. For one thing, I don't like electabuzz, it's incredibly annoying, and my third-least favorite pokemon (after Lickitung and sudowoodo). For another, I can see the change in animation with this episode, getting away from the strobe lighting, and it looks really awful, especially with Pikachu's thunderbolt. I know it was because of "Electric Soldier Porygon" that they changed it, but it wasn't the only time a change in the show's animation looked awful the first time it was used. "Here's Looking at You Elekid" (the first with Jessie's mauve hair) also looks awful.

    We didn't get to see much of the Kas gym because all we got was a close up shot and a scene of one room with all the peons.

    I don't know why they needed to fight in the city. They seemed to have tons of open space to beat the snot out of each other around it. I guess to make them look bad. I'm surprised any self-respecting trainer would agree to join something who seems to only bring violence and dispair.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Not one of my favorite,but still great episode.The scene with pikachu and bottle of ketchup was hilarious,and i was really surprised when it was revealed that Nurse Joy is pokemon league inspector.That kind of twist i didnt espected at all.The battle between Kas and Yas gyms was entertaining to watch,and it was interesting to know how Scyther and Electabuzz get out of control when they see red.Overall a solid episode.

    Pikachu and the kecthup were meant to be ^_^ I loved that bit so much! <3

    Electabuzz & Scyther made me wonder if all Pokemon can see in black and white, since apparently only those two can distinguish the color red.

    Decent episode all & all ^^

    It is possible, the Spearow in the first episode saw in Black and White.
    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes, confirmed.

    This was such an epic episode!
    Pikachu and the Ketchup bottle, the funny mixed up names, and the "That was dramatic....That was pathetic!" line... 'nuff said!
