    Bulbasaur is the most promotable member of that evolutionary line, they could happily keep him in that stage forever, just like they've done with Pikachu.

    It was nice to see the whole evolutionary set of Bulbasaur. I really don't understand why some of Ash's Pokémon don't want to evolve. Evolution isn't supposed to change the Pokémon mentally, only physically. Although somehow that wasn't the case for Charmeleon... Anyway it was still a bit of a boring episode. Nice to see Team Rocket being Solar Beamed!

    This is a great episode. Cool to see how Bulbasaur can surpress the evolution process. The garden full of Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur was nice as well. A good episode for Bulbasaur to learn Solarbeam. I love Ivysaur more than Bulbasaur, but I'm happy about the fact that Bulbasaur is still a Bulbasaur. I can't describe it well, but Ash's Bulbasaur just feels better as a Bulbasaur. Also good to see that unevolved Pokemon can be just as good as fully evolved ones, that's the lesson from this episode.

    I enjoyed this episode - solely on the fact that this episode was meant for Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur is probably the most strongest un-evolved Pokemon Ash has, and in my opinion, Bulbasaur remains to have that position all up to this day

    A nice episode focusing on Bulbasaur. I love how it didn't wanna be like everyone else who was evolved already. It doesn't have to be forced to do something it doesn't wanna do, which is why I liked this episode.

    A great episode. Loved how it was mainly focus on Bulbasaur, since its pretty much my favorite starter. I wish it would have evolved, but I understand it didn't want to.. so I still enjoyed it. He is cute :3 I liked how Solarbeam was portrayed. It looked so powerful ^_^

    Nice to see all the double standards people have. bulbasaur chooses not to evolve and everyone loves him. Piplup decides not to and its the worst thing in the world.

    Bulbasaur's decision not to evolve was a real character-defining moment. Piplup merely copied Bulbasaur later on, so it wasn't as great a moment then.

    Being tackled by a Rhyhorn must not feel so well does it? But, it was cool seeing Bulbasaur use Solarbeam. I loved it when I was younger "Bulba bulba bulba bulba bulba bulba bulba"

    Really liked this episode too!
    Bulbasaur is one of my favorite Pokemons so ofc I liked to see him get this episode. But I also really like a few things I would like to mention.

    1: Even though EVERYONE expect him to evolve and Venasaur/all Ivysaur is getting really mad at him he is still doing what he thinks is the right choice. If more humans actually could stand up for what they truly want and not follow what the group thinks

    2: The fact that even though Ash wanted Bulbasaur to evolve (at first) he did developed as a char here. He wanna become the best trainer ever but he see those Pokemons as so much more then just a tool to get him to the dreams he has. This special bound is very nice to see!

    3: Pikachu trying to imitate Bulbasaur is so hilarious =)

    This was a great episode. The mysterious garden of Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur was nice, I liked how Bulbasaur was not willing to evolve.

    Bulbasaur learning Solarbeam was great. It was cool to see Bulbasaur proving that he could do well without evolving. Bulbasaur is the best of Ash's unevolved Kanto Pokémon in opinion, so it's nice to see him getting some character development.

    This episode was alright. I found Team Rocket to be hilarious in this episode, and they also broke the 4th wall which was nice. I wish Bulbasaur would have evolved though.

    I still applaud Bulbasaur's decision not to evolve here. I personally prefer un-evolved Pokemon, so I was pleased that Bulbasaur made himself an individual by deciding his own path. Aside from his choice and him learning Solar Beam to beat Team Rocket, I really liked how the mysterious garden looked.

    a shame that bulbasaur decided not to evolve, would've been nice to see ivysaur or better yet venasaur in ash's team alongside charizard, but then again, going with my older brother's theory/interpretation, it probably didn't want to evolve because it didn't want to end up like how charizard was at the time, a disobedient jerk, putting it lightly

    I felt bad for Bulbasaur when the other Bulbasaurs kidnapped him, plus him learning Solar Beam was cool. The garden looked pretty as well and Ash getting hit by Venusaur's vines was scary.

    I like Ivysaur so I was anticipating Bulbasaur becoming one but then nothing happened. This episode should've included that and not just him learning Solarbeam. 6/10

    I thought that it was refreshing how things didn't go that way however cuz we had never seen a pokemon reject evolution before except Pikachu, but even then we didn't see him struggle like Bulbasaur did here.

    The real reason why Bulbasaur did not want to evolve because did not feel ready yet & will only evolve when it feel ready

    Bulbasaur not wanting to evolve pissed me off since that's what Pokemon is mostly about. Meh, Ivysaur looks so much better too.

    I hope so.

    Bulbasaur being harassed by the other ones made me feel bad for him, but I thught his Solarbeam looked great even better than in the games.

    I've always wondered why his decision here was left open ended however given how he's never changed his stance on evolving since this episode. I think he should've been against evolving at all 100% here and given us closure. ^^
