    Come to think of it, I think Super Smash Bros. Melee may have inadvertently predicted Ash turning into a Pikachu in this episode. In that game, Pikachu for the first time had Red's hat as an alternate costume - and Ash is based on Red. A few months after the game's release, the episode aired in Japan.

    I feel like this episode was inspired by Harry Potter. Ash turning into a Pikachu was crazy. I wish he stayed that way for several episodes.

    Agreed. This episode was a complete waste of potential and demonstrated an avoidance of creative writing.

    Lily was a fun Cotd hee hee and I liked how she knew how to do magic including how she transformed Ash into a Pikachu toward the end of the episode. It was so different and interesting.

    So was this just a fan service episode, because other than Ash becoming a Pikachu and heading into bad fan fic territory, nothing happened...

    It didn't affect the over all plot in the Johto saga of course, but seeing an actual witch character cast a spell on Ash was still exciting even for a filler. ^^;

    Lily's magic spells and accent reminded me of Harry Potter in a way + I would've preferred if she had a Misdreavus instead of Murkrow.

    Well her owning a Murkrow was likely due to its head feathers looking like a witch's hat hee hee. Although speaking of the Harry Potter references here, I think Lily should've owned a Hoothoot to mirror Hedwig from that series.

    I liked Lily, but I was never a big fan of this episode, although I've always felt Murkrow was an underused Pokemon, so I liked that it was used in this episode.

    Whoa now this was definitely one of better Master Quest fillers without a doubt! The whole idea of Ash turning in pikachu was hilarious and unique. The only thing I didn't like is that they didn't focus on the fact that Ash got turned into a Pikachu. If that had been the focus of this episode, it would've made me like it even more. I kinda wish there was another episode where Lily came back.

    Lily's spells seemed bogus to me until we saw Satoshi change into a Pikachu at the end. Kasumi also showed her vain side again when she asked Lily for help making her skin smoother, which backfired when those Itomaru got involved. This whole episode had a surreal feeling that made it feel like a whole different series to me.

    I thought Lily was going to end up being a fraud by the end, so I was kind of amazed when her spell on Ash worked. I guess magic does exist in the anime.
