Nice episode, a good start from Hoenn
I really liked introduction of May...
Man, this episode was kinda sad. I didn't liked the fact Pikachu AGAIN got sick/hurt
I loved Pikachu's "bite" on Ash, and the bike that was burned again...

I thought that this was a good epidose to start off the new season in Hoenn. I also thought thus was a good introduction for May. I felt bad for Pikachu being sick, and I felt even worse when I found out Pikachu could explode. I found it ironic that Team Rocket was responsible for both making Pikachu sick and curing it. I thought it was funny when Mudkip used Water Gun at May's face. I thought it was cute when Torchic went over and rubbed against May's leg. I thought it was sweet how May didn't bother Ash about her bike (Ash seems to have bad luck with bicycles) when he was with Pikachu. I thought it was interesting how badly May wanted to travel with Ash.
I found it odd how Ash took a boat to Littleroot Town when there is no sea near it.
I <3 May.
I do not do competitive battling and I really do not have any desire to. I also do not go out of my way seeking for shinies because I never really understood why they were so great anyways. All I truely enjoy pokemon contests, breeding, and in-game battling.
I think grass pokemon are the greatest ever and I take great pride in the ones I have raised. I also think that Chikorita is the most adorable pokemon ever!
If you would like to know me send me a message. I'm not shy(:
When pikachu's eyes are red, I were thinking "Ohh god!" O_o
And Pikachu clashed may's bike! Like misty had before XD
Nice way to kick off the new series, imo. It's much better than everyone simply meeting each other and deciding to travel together. And it makes anyone new to the show have to check the original series, just to understand why Pikachu is in such a state. Advertising something said and done, yep.
Hey, it's a reference to choosing the Pokemon in RSE! Next generation of games, the professor needs to be on top of a tree like Birch. That's classic.
I forgot how much of a personality Torchic had - it was nice to see it walk up to May and rub affectionately on her leg, especially after the ordeal she had with the Mudkip the day prior =P
Overall, it's a nice way to kick things off, nothing was really missing in the episode
besides a Misty reference, and everyone starts off with a clean slate. Very enjoyable.
Recently i watched this episode again, after some years, so i have to say i really enjoyed it! I didn't remember about how green May was, and watching how much she grow up in the series and using pokemon is terrific.
Prof. Birch being chased by wild pokemon and May getting a water gun in the face still makes me laugh.
KotoneLyra is awesome kotto ne?!♥
I haven't seen the episode but I have it in annual.
Spoiler:- The rest of my sig:
I have claimed the beast that is Shieldon.
Credits to Geekachu for my amazing licky.
Certainly an exciting way to start off the Saga in Hoenn. It's not everyday that Pikachu loses control of it's powers and goes on a wild rampage. I really liked May's debut part of this episode the most though. She wasn't too "happy" nor too sad, she was just normal. I guess after seeing Misty, I was expecting something crazier haha. She was kinda clueless about Pokemon though. It was entertaining at least, 8/10.

This was a great debut to the Hoenn region, especially May's debut

It's 2010 and I'm finally watching Pokemon Advance, the season where I left the show. I always like the first episodes because it's the start of a new adventure and this one was good. I like how May doesn't really care for pokemon and has no clue what she's doing, the Mudkip part was funny. I always liked Prof. Birch in the games so it was cool to see him in anime form. Ash was pretty crazy for jumping off that cliff to save Pikachu, but then again, he's Ash. Overall, this was a fantastic first episode and I'm looking forward to watching more.
Pretty good start to Hoenn, I am glad that May chose Torchic (Then rather Brock because it wouldn't have much to do) because it's my favorite Pokemon.
When Mudkip sprayed the water in May's face that was funny it was like "Mudkip, water gun" slowly and then Mudkips like "Okay" and shoots it in her face lol.
Burned bike, de va ju lol, and May convincing Ash to let her go with him with a guilt bomb.
May is here. ♥ This is favorite series in the show but I found this episode to be alright. It wasn't amazing or anything like that but it was a good set up episode. Team Rocket wasn't that annoying in this episode thankfully and I really liked Birch in this episode too. He's my favorite professor thus far since he's so outgoing unlike the other ones (Especially Elm).
This was an ok episode... I'm glad it was TR who fixed Pikachu after they were the ones who made him sick in the 1st place. It was cool seeing the Hoenn Starter Pokemon Mudikp, Torchic, and Treecko for the 1st time. Mudkip using Water Gun on May was very funny. It was cool seeing Poochyena for the 1st time. This was a cool way to introduce May into the Anime.
I liked May's introduction at the beginning. It was a nice way to get to know her. Oh, and it was funny when the Duskull scared her.
I liked how they showed all three Hoenn starters, since this was the first time I saw all three of them.
However, I didn't like how this episode re-used plots used in previous episodes, e.g. with Pikachu destroying a bike, Pikachu being sick. They should be able to come up with ideas that are slightly more original.
Thanks to aclover for the trainer card
An amazing start for the Hoenn region. I think May and Birch introductions were nice.
Jesse depressed was hilarious and they healed Pikachu lol.
May choose Torchic as her starter (she disliked Mudkip & Treecko lol), finally Ash & May decide to go to Oldale Town to register in the Hoenn League.
It was an amazing episode. really reminded me of the 1st of the Original Series.
A fairly nice first episode. A new trainer who doesn't even like Pokémon and a veteran starting over. Beginning of another friendship.
I was worried for Pikachu this episode. Following Johto's downer ending of it falling ill, and acting insane in this one, I was glad it ended well. Nice job fixing it, Team Rocket.
And a charred bike. Can't forget that part (not the reason May's traveling with Ash, though.)
I can't even remember why May wanted to travel with Ash, but......whatever.
I still liked the episode, but why does Pikachu have to be injured in the first episode of every new region?
This is one of my favorite episodes, it introduces one of my favorite character's(May). Plus the Pikachu going crazy was just hilarious
Pokemon Black 2 Team:
A boring episode, another girl who has a bike that get's fried by pikachu. -rolls eyes- Overall I like Prof Birch
Best friends forever, Sisters at heart ♥
