    I like the part where Lily picked up Pikachu and said 'Oh, Pikachu! You're such an adorable little baby!'. Also, I like the part where Ash was accidently turned into a Pikachu!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHHAHAHA

    I liked that episode, though we never got to see what he did as a Pikachu that much. he just played with his Pikachu and Misty's Togepi, that's all

    Of all the Johto Fillers, this was the Johtoiest.

    Cons-
    Ashachu=lame
    Cardcaptor Sakura spoof=lame
    Attmepts to make Aipom cry=*The Big Al asleep on the couch*
    Guest's obession with Meowth=unoriginal
    Hunting down various common as dirt Pokemon for their secretions=Yuck

    Pros-
    They never made another episode like it=Yay

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Personally, I think that Ash should have stayed a Pikachu longer. XD

    I love this eppie. Ashachu was so kawaii, plus I liked Lily. Her voice was...interesting(English accented fangirl type). BTW; was anybody being reminded of Harry Potter(or should I say Snape?) with the potion ingredients? I was...kinda.^_^; There was one little nitpick I found; and that was when Parasect tried to put Ash to sleep. It wasn't Sleep Powder, Brock; it was Spore!(The Paras family doesn't even learn Sleep Powder!) And...ASHACHU!-^_^- I give this filler...8/10!

    Yay, the Ash-as-Pikachu episode! That had to be one of the best episode endings EVER. It's interesting that they didn't resolve it till the next episode, either.

    My only complaint about the episode is, those spell chants really SUCKED.

    Is Tomoyo from CCS one of the people who work in costume? Any ways I liked the Cardcaptor Sakura spoof, my geuss they made because it was on Kids WB at the time and I geuss they thought kids would get it. "Hey Jessie is dressed like Sakura! That is so cool!"

    Yes. Yes, that's exactly right. The Americans thought that it would be cool to have Jessie in a Sakura costume when CCS was airing on KidsWB.

    You are aware that Pokemon is made in Japan and that they most likely have no idea what programs are airing on what channel in America? Nevertheless, actually *care* about it? The spoof was for Japanese watchers of the show.

    The only good part of the episode was the last two minutes, but that more than made up for the rest.

    No matter how lame and stupid other people thought Ashachu was, I thought it was kinda cool. =) We don't really get that many strange things happening in Johto or Hoenn anymore, so this was welcome.

    Also, I think that the writers wasted a good opportunity with this. It would have been a lot better if he had actually DONE something as a Pikachu, instead of just playing with Pikachu, Murkrow, and Togepi. =/ IMO, they should have left him one for at least the next episode, because it was all about electric pokemon. =/

    This was a pretty good episode; there was a number of funny moments. I think Ash turning into a Pikachu was very cheesey, though... But that's just my opinion...

    Oh, don't you get it, Judai Yuki?

    Never before did they have a storyline where someone, and the main character surprisingly, gets turned into a Pokemon.


    In my opinion, this was one of the BEST Pokemon episodes ever.


    I mean, first of all, the whole episode was just hilarious from start to finish. Also, the girl-of-the-day Lily was really cool. Hehe, I loved how they gave her a British accent! And the way they had to gather each of the Pokemon ingredients was really funny too. The whole scene with Team Rocket trying to get the Aipom to cry was absolutely hilarious! And I also liked how Ash volunteered to be the person to 'try' the Pokemon Mind Reading Spell.

    Poor Ash, he didn't know what he was in for. XD

    I do wish we could've actually seen the transformation, rather than them just hiding it with the yellow smoke (though, the fact that it was yellow smoke actually made a lot of sense).

    Anyway, I like how they didn't show Ash's face right away, and instead, the camera showed us how Misty and Brock looked from Ash's point of view. That was hilarious!

    And omg, the lines! I loved the lines, especially Ash's line, "What? Why are you guys lookin' at me like I've got two heads?". And then of course, there's the amazing, really-freaked-out reaction that Ash had when he saw himself in the mirror! And then he just freaked out even more when he went around in a circle like that, trying to understand how he had been turned into a Pikachu. XD

    Although, I did find it a bit odd how Lily's spell book was, conveniently (for the writers anyway, lol) smudged like that. I wonder, could this mean that Ash and everyone could meet up with her again, in a future episode maybe? Hehe, that would be awesome. XD

    Anyway, I'm definitely gonna have to say that my favorite part in this episode was when Ash found out that the spell would wear off eventually. He was so happy to be a Pikachu!! ^^ And the best part was that he was even saying different variations of the name Pikachu, just like if he were really a Pokemon. XD I found that simply hilarious! LOL.


    So yeah, overall, this was definitely one of my top favorite episodes, just because what happened in it was very unique and had never happened in the anime before ever.

    And of course, Ash was soooooo cute as a Pikachu!! I LOVE Ashachu!!!! <3

    I LOVE this episode....I now own it on DVD (cuz I have one of the Master Quest box sets) and I'm SOOO happy :3

    ...And I STILL think they should've made a whole episode with Ash as a Pikachu in it...instead of just making him change back in the beginning of the next one...

    I agree. I would have loved to see Team Rocket capture Ashachu and be wondering what the heck is going on. LOL

    Yeah!

    Team Rocket's antics with Ashachu would've definitely been hilarious!


    Anyway though, who knows, maybe the writers will hopefully come up with a future AG episode where Ash gets turned into a Pikachu again. I think they would probably bring Lily back, for a reappearence.

    Of course, Ash most likely would not want to go through all of that again (with having to wait for the spell to wear off), so he probably wouldn't wanna get turned into a Pikachu a second time. So, I figure he would have to be 'forced' into getting turned into a Pikachu again. Unless, he really enjoyed being a Pikachu, then I bet he would love the chance to get to be one again. ^^

    Hmm......

    I love this episode, and after having watched it yet again (I've already watched it so many times I've lost count, lol), I found out that this episode leaves you with a lot of questions that somehow or another seem to go unanswered because the episode itself just doesn't go until enough detail about it (I guess that's because the writers either didn't have enough time time to put all those extra details in there, or they just didn't feel the need to do that for some reason). I don't know, but does anyone else feel that way?

    Anyway, this is what intrigues me.



    Okay, for example, one thing I don't understand about this episode, and that I could never figure out exactly, is whether or not the Pokemon Mind Reading Spell actually worked or not. Basically, the ending of the episode kinda contradicts itself. And I'll explain it like this.

    First of all, yeah, the spell turned Ash into a Pikachu, but like Lily said right after the event happened, "Strange...that wasn't supposed to happen.", so with that statement it seems like the spell went wrong somehow. Yet, later on, after Ashachu starts playing with all the Pokemon, Misty says, "Well, maybe the spell worked afterall" and Brock says, "Yeah, Ash is definitely inside the mind of a Pikachu".




    But still, that just left me even more confused, and it doesn't anwer these questions either:


    Okay, since they had all the ingredients right and everything, my question is, if indeed the spell was messed up, then what went WRONG with the spell exactly, and what could Lily have done accidentally to make that happen?


    Also, do you think it could be possible that Lily had the wrong idea about the spell in the first place and how it's supposed to work or something? Like maybe what is supposed to happen is the exact opposite of what she had originally thought? Could this mean the spell was actually SUPPOSED to turn Ash into a Pikachu? O_O *hears gasps from everyone*



    I mean, just the fact that Lily's spellbook was smudged up like that makes me wonder, did the writers do that intentionally? Like, they wanted to keep the 'rest' of the spell a secret from us or something?


    So yeah, those are all the questions I thought of which really stumped me, lol. And I'm not sure if I'm the only one here who has thought about these things or if everyone else has been wondering the same things. But, either way, I'd still like to know all there is to know about this episode, and finally have those questions answered. ^^



    Anyway though, those interesting, deep thoughts about "Hocus Pokemon" aside, I think it would be great if the actual reason the writers smudged Lily's book was so they could bring Lily back in a future episode or something, to maybe explain what the REST of the spell said. Hehe. XD I know it's not very likely to happen (with AG, the P/D region and all) but, that would be really cool if it did happen!!!!!!

    Sorry for the double post......

    But, anyway, so no one agrees with me on this or can give me answers to those questions?

    Or, was my rant too long, so no one read it? ^^o
