Not much love for Charizard in this thread, eh?
I must be in the minority, because I liked the Charizard half of this episode more than the Pidgeotto/Pidgeot half. Let's face it, Charizard has some of the most personality out of all of Ash's Pokemon in the first season. That personality means it can come of in two ways, either positively or negatively. Charizard is definitely its own Pokemon, and I see that as a sign of strong character. As mentioned by others, Charizard's reaction to seeing the food and then it getting blown up by Team Rocket is the funniest part of this episode. Some people find Charizard to be a jerk, but I think he's awesome.
One thing that sort of bothered me about the Pidgeotto/Pidgeot voice work is that Pidgeot said the word "Pidgeotto" in its...dialogue way more than the actual evolution. Like, Pidgeotto used to say "Pidgeot" a lot, and now the final evolution is all backwards when it speaks too? Kinda strange.
