Team Rocket annoyed me in this episode, but it was saddening when Phanpy was scared of Ash. But, Ash should have known that it was playing with him at first. He needs to stop losing his temper so fast.

Amazing episode! This is why I love the Animé!

In this episode, Ash's egg finally hatched into a Phanpy! Phanpy was a little scared of Ash and Pikachu at first, but I liked how it became friends with them later in the episode. It's cool when Ash rescued Pikachu and Phanpy when they're heading towards the waterfall. It's cool when Phanpy used Rollout and knocked out Team Rocket's Pokémon.
Overall this was a good episode, I'm glad Ash finally got a Ground-type Pokémon. It's a nice addition to his team.

Gomazou was cute and I think it will be a powerful partner of Satoshi. One thing that does not make sense is Gomazou took damage from Pikachu's Juuman Boruto/ Thunderbolt since it is a ground type which is immune to electric attacks. This episode was all right but not fantastic in my opinion.

Something I noticed about this episode was how not on the ball Brock was at one point.
When hanyp first got captured by TR and Ash had Pikachu use Thunderbolt, Brock is usually the one to warn Ash that the current could carry (maybe not saying this exact thing the whole time) and effect another Pokemon, in this case, Phanpy.
Where was Brock with this warning in this episode?

I was glad that Phanpy hatched so soon and it was pretty adorable in my view. I found Team Rocket's entrance in egg costumes really funny, but seeing Pikachu zap Phanpy was sad, even if it was accidental and Electric-type attacks shouldn't have affected Phanpy. Phanpy hanging out with TR and Meowth painting his tail like a Phanpy was funny also.

Finally Phanpy hatched from the egg! I thought it was so cute but to me it getting injured cuz of Pikachu's Thunderbolt made very little sense given how Phanpy's a ground type and should've been immune. ^^;

Phanpy hatching from the egg was marvelous and even though I didn't think it suited Ash at 1st I was looking forward to him having Donphan someday. 8/10

Meh, Phanpy hatching didn't excite me since Ash having a plain Ground-type seemed unnecessary...

Phanpy was such a kawaii Baby Pokemon and I felt upset watching him suffer little setbacks on his first day of life. It was so unfair.

Nice to finally see the egg Ash got hatch into a Phanpy. Phanpy is cute and a very good addition to Ash's team. Interesting that it actually gets electrocuted in this when it's a Ground Pokemon. :/

I'm not exactly a fan of ground types myself, but I liked Phanpy's cuteness regardless of his type hee hee. Plus at least now Ash's Johto team was complete once again. :]

Egg hatching time! I felt bad for Ash's poor baby Phanpy throughout this episode. I think Ash was being a little too hard on it right when it just hatched. It only wanted to play, not fight. I also felt bad that it got electrocuted by Pikachu - even though it's a Ground-type. Meowth making his tail look like Phanpy was very odd. It was nice to see Phanpy warming up to Ash as the episode went on. I am glad that everything worked out for the best. I rate this eight out of ten.
