Technically they didn't get lost, they were just chasing the bird into a closed area. I actually wanted to see how long Ash could handle on taking care of May and Max. That would be even cooler than Brock's always boring appearance.

This episode was ok... It was cool seeing Tailow for the 1st time. I'm glad Ash caugh a Tailow. It was 1 tough-minded Pokemon! It just wouldn't ever give up or go down during the battle. It was cool to see Brock back, and that he joined the gang on the new journey.

Yay! Brock's return, wow there were 4 episodes without him!
May, Ash & Max couldn't get to survive haha, Taillow was stubborn and a nice addition to Ash's team!
another great episode, Hoenn start has been nice. 10/10

Nice to see Brock back. Tailow was a good addition to Ash's team but I would of prefered him with a Pelipper or Something. 8/10

I just watched this episode. It was great to see that Ash caught such a determined bird Pokemon, Taillow. It was able to take electricity despite the disadvantage. Taillow is even one of my favorites in the Hoenn region.

Poor May, not knowing anything when she brought out Torchic, What a surprise to see Brock make an EPIC return!! love him, Lastly I LOVE that Ash uses Misty's hankerchief to whipe Taillows beak. Good episode.

I was refering to the handkerchief, I am pretty sure this is the only episode it ever re-appeared in. It only took 4 episodes from the previous one to see it.
Also I doubt many people really took notice of it as by the time this ep aired 6 months later people forgot what it even looked like.

I think this episode was great for the awesome return of Brock and Ash capturing Tailow. Those Tailow were really fierce and that made the introduction to the epitome of the flying-type Pokémon in Hoenn quite well. I was really happy when I saw this episode the first time and hearing Brock continuing the journey with Ash. So far, Hoenn started of quite strong and I can say that after Brock joined and Ash finally did something significant in Hoenn (Capturing his first Pokémon) that this is the point were the journey really started.

I was impressed by Taillow's endurance and willpower. The willpower reminds me of Bayleef (her love for Ash must make her totally motivated, maybe even more than Ash's other Pokemon), the endurance is Charizard-like (what he endurned against Harrison's Blaziken before going down was very impressive, not to mention quite some other battles)! Taillow is one of my favourites of Ash's Hoenn team, this was a really cool episode. I was also happy to see Brock coming back! 9/10, one of the best AG episodes that isn't a Contest, Gym battle or Frontier battle!

You Never Can Taillow
Thus the AG group has formed completely, Brock's return was quite epic and the Taillow were equally as badass. The way they kept standing up to those Thunderbolts from Pikachu was simply astounding, especially the leader which endured and sponged so many powerful moves it was ridiculous, yeah Ash gets his first Hoenn capture and a pretty tough one at that. The first personality-having bird, very stubborn nature unlike the other birds. I liked how Max was so eusthiastic about seeing a Pokemon, it was refreshing since he's just a naive kid who really love Pokemon, like young Ash, but smart. I thought May's jab about Ash not having any food was amusing.
Brock's Forretress getting rid of the Taillow with Explosion too. TR trying to convince the Taillow to do their dirty work over for the Taillow to drop them a second later due to Brock's food was pathetic, Pikachu sent them blasting off like they were nothing. Not even a Pokemon battle. Poor May, her Torchic once again is treated like a complete comedic joke. We get it writers, it's very very weak. Shame because I actually got excited when May sent out Torchic to take on the Taillow flock & Team Rocket alongside Pikachu. Max was entertaining and this overall was a solid capture episode and somewhat amusing. Throwing Brock's return, Ash getting a new Pokemon, and group interactions into this worked like a charm. We have May's love of food highlighted again, or rather the entire group's intense love of food. It was fun.

It was a good episode, with funny and interesting interactions between the group, which is now complete with Brock's return in this episode. I loved the battle between Pikachu and Taillow, it never gave up in the battle.

A good episode, I was glad that Brock came back even though that won't change things. Taillow was very strong to endure all of Pikachu's electricity. There were some humor parts which was great and I loved how there was a small Misty reference as well. Pikachu & Taillow battling was fun to see.

Haha, I enjoyed this episode! It was nice to see Brock return and Ash catch his first pokemon. I wonder what the rest of the season will hold.
I am glad Ash caught his first pokemon also!!!
