This episode was good. Nice to see Casey again and to see Her Chikorita evolved. Misty in this episode was pricless. Cool Ash gave Casey Beedrill in the end.
One of my favourite episodes, I really liked this one. I am a big fan of Casey, with her funny Electabuzz-song. Also, Bayleef is one of my favourite Pokemon (and has always been), and this was the first episode with a Bayleef appearing in it.

Ash is so nice! I liked this episode I wish it was longer dealing with another type of Pokemon than bug catching though. However, I liked that Ash won and that Casey got her stripes.
Loved seeing Casey again! She is one of my Johto favourites! And her Chikorita is too cute. Her Bayleef should wear that headband! And it was really sweet of Ash to give her that Beedrill. Love the Electabuzz song at the end!
A good episode, when I read the title I knew it was gonna be funny. Episodes with bug Pokemon and Misty are always hilarious. Close to the end I felt sorry for Casey until she proved herself to be strong. I'm glad Ash didn't keep the Beedrill for Misty's sake.
Alder: You wanna know what's better than battling?
Alder: Eating hotdogs and battling!
Trip: My God, It's like looking into the future.
A strong point of Johto was that multiple characters were recurring in the anime. Seeing Casey again was nice and overall better for the entire episode. Also good thing Ash gave her that Beedril. She will certainly like that color.
I'm glad they got on Casey's case. But that makes me wonder if Pokemon were real, would I be doing the same thing she was doing? Just trying to win and forget about my Pokemon?
I have never seen that Itomaru's back stripes can change into a laughing face. Very funny to see that Kasumi fear of bugs. I have no idea why Satoshi wants to catch a Beedle here because it was a slot wasted if he catches it in my opinion. If he wants one then he should get it way back in the beginning where he got a Caterpie. Overall this episode was interesting but not fantastic.
It was nice of Ash to give Casey that Beedrill at the end. Now she has another yellow-striped Pokemon.
Neat that her Chikorita evolved, but her Bayleef's voice sounds kind of weird.
Just realized something, if Casey likes yellow/yellow-striped Pokemon so much, I wonder how she'd react if she got the chance to own a Raikou?

My top favorites
Claimed by me!
Sigh. I still wish Ash had kept the Beedrill that he caught here instead of just giving it away to Casey. He could've Oak'd it at least. Anyway, I cackled at Jessie and James's school kid outfits as well as Meowth's baby disguise. Seeing Misty's Bug Pokemon phobia return was funny as well. Overall, the Bug-Catching Contest could've been better imo.
I liked seeing Casey again even tho she was as arrogant as usual. I wish that Ash's Chikorita had evolved here instead, but hey at least Ash gave Casey his Beedrill which he didn't need any ways. ^^
Lame. Ash shouldn't have given his new Beedrill away. Casey should've caught her own instead.
Casey evolved her Chikorita which pleased me although I also wish that Ash had kept Beedrill since it might've been useful in the future. 7/10
My favorite scene here was Misty getting spooked by Spinarak + Casey should've captured a strong Bug-type like that Scyther that Chikorita fought, not Weedle.
Nature Park's Bug-Catching Contest seemed very different here compared to the in-game version, in that only the winner could keep their captured Bug-type. Adaptation differences aside, I liked seeing Nanako again, especially watching her Chikoriita evolve. Satoshi giving Nanako his Spear was nice, too.
Wtf @ Ash gifting Casey his Beedrill. It was good to see her Chikorita evolve into Bayleef, though. I do think that she was pushing Chikorita a little too hard during the contest, but everything turned out okay.
