    What I have learned from this article: Every commenter on GR knows more about Pokémon than the article writer.

    No Dr.Oak was planing on giving pikatchu to ash from the start. They showed that on Pokemon movie 4

    Congratulations GR, you successfully watched the first few episodes of Pokemon and regurgitated it into a slideshow.

    Oh come on..even when I was 10 I knew that Ash took 4 days less than his dad because he skipped most of the trip by river, waterfall, Misty's bike and then Jenny's escort~

    "Ironically, it's with Caterpie that Ash shows his first signs of not being a complete failure, using the bug-type beast to defeat Team Rocket's Ekans and Koffing." But Bug is weak to Poison-types. And Caterpie couldn't learn any moves that'd do much to those two, so that victory leans more on dumb luck/the plot demanding it. Also, I don't really see why this article is here. The show doesn't follow the games much, and a lot of people remember these things from the show, even if they haven't seen them recently.

    First off, bug is not and never was weak to poison. Poison was only ever super effective to grass; before fairy became a thing. In generation 1 bug was super effective to poison, that changed in generation 2 where bug was not very effective to poison. I do agree that Caterpie didn't have any offensive bug type moves in generation 1, but the anime seems to make string shot way cooler than it is in the game.

    Before you say something as righteously as you did, please check your facts. In Generation I (Kanto), Bug types were in fact weak to Poison types. You were right in saying that Poison types were weak to Bug types, but Bug types were also weak to Poison types. If you don't believe me, go to the Bulbapedia and check the Bug type type chart in Generation I.

    Has anyone else noticed that the zoomed in picture of pikachu's mouth has no tongue

    It's probably been over 10 years since I've seen those episodes but I still remember them. Although when you put it that way, Ash is worst than Rusty (from Dorkly's little animated Pokemon series)

    Re-watching as an adult has just highlighted how many times Nintendo copped out on developing Ash's Pokemon for the sake of marketing. I understand Pikachu not wanting to evolve because it wanted to be better than Raichu but using that explanation for all of Ash's Pokemon or not explaining at all why they won't evolve or you baloney. I'll admit Ash rarely used Squirtle so it's okay that it never evolved into Wartortle but Bulbasaur should've been a Venusaur by midway Johto and yes I know there's an episode where Bulbasaur explained he wasn't ready to evolve but two and a half seasons later he's still not ready despite being the only Kanto Pokemon with Ash other than Pikachu? BALONEY. Also, Ash said he'd come back for Pidgeot. BRING BACK PIDGEOT!
  • MidianGTX - July 14, 2014 3:03 p.m.

    I can't get over the fact you keep saying baloney.
  • darkrider105 - March 19, 2014 10:24 a.m.

    I had forgot that they sing the Pokemon rap at the end of every episode. It hurt so much...
  • Shnubby - March 19, 2014 4:21 a.m.

    Funnily enough I still remembered all of this!
  • Shigeruken - March 18, 2014 11:03 p.m.

    How about the Onigiri scene? The one where the characters constantly mention that they're eating 'donuts' because people were apparently terrified of anything Asian.
  • TheTrooper424 - March 18, 2014 8:26 p.m.

    Brilliant article haha
  • pl4y4h - March 18, 2014 7:29 p.m.

    Also, I think they recently got put on Netflix

    My reading skills really suck once school is back in session. Ignore this comment and instead reminisce on how bad ass the squirtle squad is
  • codystovall - March 18, 2014 3:44 p.m.

    people forgot this?
  • J-Fid - March 18, 2014 6:12 p.m.

    This article should be called "8 things you'll never forget about the Pokemon Animated Series, especially if you've seen the first 17 episodes because they are all amazing."
  • RODTheMaster - March 18, 2014 3:23 p.m.

    So I also have been watching a bit of the series for nostalgia's sake, and I found a very odd reference made by Brock. In the episode where the heroes are shipwrecked on a small raft in the ocean, Brock remembers the story of Noah, and uses the information to search for help. Guess that means Brock is a bible man.
