A excellent episode it was nice how they tied the beginning of the season with the end by having the Spearow Ash threw a rock at evolve and get revenge on him in this episode. Also great seeing Pidgeotto evolve in this episode to Pidgeot to fend off the Fearow, it's to bad the writers don't show Pidgeot again in the entire series even though theirs been plenty of times to do so, I guess they just forgot about Pidgeot. I can understand Ash leaving Pidgeot if he had caught the Fearow to add to his team but since he doesn't he should've kept Pidgeot with him at least until part way through Johto. Any one else catch the apparent dub flub in this episode Prof. Oak calls Ivy a "he" but Misty just a couple seconds later calls Ivy a "she".
