I never really liked Chikorita in general; they're all so vain and stubborn. However by the time I watched this episode, I found some respect for the species. This episode was ok in general. At least Chikorita got some character development unlike Cyndaquil and Totodile got in their debuts. This one took place somewhere cold, that was a nice twist since Johto usually has average temperature. An ok episode, 6/10.
