What is your favourite episode from the anime?

There are quite a few good one but for me it is "The Land of Giant Pokemon"
I have no idea why I like this episode so much, I just do!

Though I most certainly haven't seen all of them, my favourite would have to be the one in which Ash's Charizard takes on Blaine's Magmar. That's probably one of the most epic battles in the anime, and being that Charizard is one of the most epic Pokémon certainly contributes to that. It's also the turning point in Charizard's respect toward Ash.

As of now, my current favorite episode is the episode where Misty releases her Togetic. It made me very sad, since Togetic was with her for a long time. That episode was really touching. Coming close is the episode before it. xD

My favorite is "A Poached Ego" - since in the anime Team Rocket trio are my favorite characters [that are not Pokémon] - it was just heartbreaking to see Arbok and Weezing leave, I could feel tears coming down my face while watching them leave.

My favorites are usually some of the more magical, deeper episodes that reflect what makes the Pokemn world unique and wonderful. And also really emotional ones where humans and Pokemon help each other out. Snow way out, Bulbasaur's mysterious garden, A friend in deed, the Joy of Pokemon, just to name a few. There's really too many to count actually, I can't single out an absolute favorite!

My favourite parts aren't really from the show, more from the Pikachu the Movie. Specifically the part where Regirock bursts out of the ground. The way Regirock and Registeel talk is so cool in my opinion.

My favourite episode? I've missed out on a lot of them but I distinctly remember one from the original series where they come across this dig site and while they are sleeping a huge gengar apears and is then beat up by a giant Jigglypuff. Anyone know which one I'm talking about. I like most episodes and any episode which has a Kabutops is instantly my favourite.

Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden is another one of my favourites. I don't know why, but I really love it when Pokémon make their own decisions about evolution like that. And Ash's Bulbasaur's learned SolarBeam in this ep as well, which is cool!

This episode's called The Ancient Puzzle of Pokémopolis if I remember correctly. There's also a giant Alakazam :P

All of my favorite episodes are of the first two generations, I stopped watching after that. Hoenn killed it for me.
The Big Kahuna is at the top of my list. I love Puka, the surfer's blue eyed pikachu and it's mysterious awesome ability to feel waves.
I also love Brock's connection with the little lost stantler in The Little Big Horn. It's probably the only time he's actually managed to impress an Officer Jenny or Nurse Joy too, in this case an Officer Jenny specifically haha. I have always loved Brock both for the humor he brings the show and for his intelligence and compassion towards pokemon. Her's a well rounded character.

Gosh it's been so long I am trying to remember all the episodes I have seen. I also enjoyed The Kangaskahn Kid, a cute George of the Jungle spoof.

I also liked the episode the name of which I can not remember when Ash entered a grass pokemon competition with Bulbasuar along side a little boy named Ethan with a skiploom. I loved that he kicked Ash's ass in the final round and took the win even if it was with an unexpected solarbeam.

I also really liked the episode, once again with a name I can not remember where the kids met a woman named Willamina with a bit of an annoyingly whiny Marril who actually responded well to Brock's flirting and liked him. Being a hopeless romantic I loved the scene where a thunderstorm broke out, and Brock comforted a frightened Willamina. It was interesting to see a girl who was actually attracted to Brock since as great a guy as he is, he tends to come on far to strong which usually intimidates. So I found that unique which is something you don't get much of with Pokemon. Usually they just keep reusing the same basic ideas. Gosh now I am wanting to watch this episodes.

Then I can't help having some sentiment for the Sabrina episode since it was my first. Sabrina's character was also pretty intense and interesting.

I have many favourite episodes an not just one single one. Listing them all would take too much time.

There's been so many episodes, it's really difficult to choose! Especially when I don't remember most of them.

The episodes centered around Team Rocket tend to rank highly with me, along with the League Tournament episodes.

I've seen literally all but 2 episode (the one with Sawsbuck and the one with Sigilyph and Cofagrigus) so I have quite a few favorites.

My favorite though has got to be Charizard vs. Articuno...absolutely EPIC!

Mine is "At the End of the Fray", there was just so many epic moments in that episode. When I first saw it, and I saw Swellow catch Donphan in it's talons, my jaw dropped. Then battle of Grovile and Pikachu against Metagross, all shooting at the same spot was awesome. The final standoff between Meowth and Pikachu...

Ash vs. Tyson was just epic!

I actually draw a blank most of the time when asked what my favorite episode(s) are, but I loved the one with the two Nidoran that fell in love as well as most other Orange Islands/early-mid Johto episodes. Also, although I disliked Sinnoh, I really liked the tag battle competition where Chimchar's fear of Zangoose was revealed (where Ash and Paul teamed up to battle). Super epic episode with lots of awesome scenes. >:

I like the one where Ash caught Bulbasaur. And the one where he let butterfree go. (I haven't seen these since I was a kid, so I only remember the biggest parts)

Most any episode with Ash's Charizard entertains me ("Can't Beat the Heat" immediately comes to mind). The show also really hit its peak during the second season, what with a bunch of cool ideas like a crystal Onix, unique Gym Challenges, well done character-based stories, and a league that Ash actually won (the only time that's ever happened... does the Battle Frontier count?).

Oh, and I almost forgot, "Bulbasaur the Ambassador"! That was a good one!

In order;
1) The Punchy Pokémon - It was the first episode on the first Pokémon VHS tape I had when I was younger, it's been my favourite episode ever since. I must have played it over at least once every day. It starts hilariously with a battle between Pikachu and Hitmonchan, and there's that cool tournament, Team Rocket stealing that Hitmonlee, and Ash saying goodbye to Primeape. D':/:'D
2) Where No Togepi Has Gone Before! - Although the D/P series was pretty weak for my overall, I've not laughed that much from an episode in ages till I saw this. That Togepi was just so adorable, and so evviiilll. It was very much one of those really whacky episodes. Randomly going into Space, attacked by a Rayquaza, and then almost crashing back down into the exact same spot to went up in. xD;
3) Meowth's Scrafty Tactics! - A very new episode, but it just spoke volumes for me. It was very different from a lot of episodes, it featured the start of Meowth joining up with the gang, and that Iris gag. Even if it was short lived, it was very enjoyable. I loved the Scraggy development too, that Scrafty was awesome.

Oh how nostalgic the first five.. seasons, are..
But I would go to a different direction then, and that's the epicness of battles. And no battle looks better than those of the League Finas! That's when Ash shows how strong he really is, unlike in the beginnings of new regions.
Those episodes, like 'At the End of the Fray' mentioned by Obrusnine, must have been planned for great amounts of time!
And so, on one of them there's the most awesome moment: in 'Battling a Thaw in Relations', the rise of Infernape can't look any better. ("Afraid not. ..huh? ohh!.. Alright! Infernape, time to show Paul just how strong you are!")

Due to the fact that my parents banned all pokemon from the house when I was younger I haven't really seen any of the old episodes, just some of the new ones, so my favorite episode I can't remember the name of (naturally), but it was the one where Ash challenges Skyla the flying gym leader to prove that her method of "air battling" was wrong (she would imagine how the battle would go and decide who would win from that, no actual battle took place). The final battle between Swanna and Ash's Unfezant was probably the best flying type battle I've seen.

Piplup, Up and Away! I shall say, there many funny episodes in the anime but nothing beats this one for me xD. It's like a dream come true for me; Piplup mad over Gible's Draco Meteor, and his Dawn Fantasies lol! It was one epic random episode.

Oh my goodness... every time I see an episode it becomes a favourite lol :)

If I had to narrow it down to one, it'd probably be The Legend of Thunder!, all three parts. Jimmy's my fave protagonist, I love his Typhlosion, there's a lot of humour (for me anyways haha) and it made me really warm to Raikou :)

I LOVE the "Squirtle Squad" episode. The sight of a Squirtle wearing shades is so strangely badass. Also, when I watched "Bye Bye Butterfree", MANLY TEARS WERE SHED.

I liked the episode when ash turned evil. I forgot what episode that was.

I also liked the episode of when they go in the SS Anne.

My all time favorite episode is when Charmilion evolves into Charizard.

I'm a fan of the epic 6 on 6 battles in the leagues generally there excited and i love seeing the odd battle styles ash comes up with in each battle.

I liked the episode where pikachu met a bunch of other pikachu in the forest. It was so cute, and I especially like how pikachu saved a baby pikachu from the river.

I love any of the 6v6 battle episodes, especially Ash vs Paul, but I have to say my all-time favourite episode is definitely Camping It Up from the Sinnoh saga. I found Dawn and Grimer to be such an amazing pairing and I loved every single moment of the episode, as well as the rivalry between Ash & Angie and the extremely well personalitied partners they were given. (Shychu was adorable <3) This whole mini-arc of episodes was amazing and they're all amongst my favourites, but this particular episode is top due to this scene:

Their modelling game was just hilarious paha.

I liked the episode Gathering the Gang of Four. It was nostalgic.

I liked the episode where it was May's blaziken vs ashs sceptile.

My most favorite episode was Here Comes the Squirtle Squad

Though I most certainly haven't seen all of them, my favourite would have to be the one in which Ash's Charizard takes on Blaine's Magmar. That's probably one of the most epic battles in the anime, and being that Charizard is one of the most epic Pokémon certainly contributes to that. It's also the turning point in Charizard's respect toward Ash.

My favorite episode was also the one where Ash faces off against Blaine in Cinnabar Island. Pikachu can't defeat Magmar, but Ash finally learns to work together with his Charizard to come out on top. The part where Charizard spun Magmar and they showed an image of him circling the Earth in the background, for the seismic toss attack, was extremely exciting to me when I was a kid. Still brings back great memories.


I can't forget; I was also very choked up by the episode where Ash released his Pidgeot, moreso than with Butterfree, because Pidgeot was with him much longer and was one of his most powerful Pokemon. Can anyone fill me in on if he ever went back for him? He said he would, or so I remember. I tried to keep up with the newer episodes maybe 5-6 years ago but I couldn't get into it. I'm still concerned for the fate of the old characters/Pokemon though, lol.

I got some favorites. One is Gotta Catch Ya Later. Although it marks as the last second-to the last episode of Master Quest, it have this mixed emotions.. part of the nostalgic feeling when I was watching it the second time back then.

One of my most favorite episodes is the Crystal Onyx:) and all of the episodes where Ash, Misty, or Brock would catch Pokemon and add them to their team:)

The episode 20 "The Ghost of Maiden's Speak" has always been my favourite episode. I also really liked the episodes where Sabrina appears. Actually the 1st season have many good episodes, however I don't remember any other episodes from more recent seasons that left their marks on me.

My favorite is Pikachu's goodbye...I couldn't help myself, it was the one of two episodes that made my cry. I consider this episode the queen of all pokemon episodes ever made. The display of the bond between Ash and Pikachu couldn't have been described in a better way.
The second wonderful episode is the famous Gotta catch ya later. I cried like about 10 minutes continuously. I just couldn't bear the end of the original series and original team. There is no substitution for that.

I take back what I said.

My all time favorite episodes are the Battle between Ash and May at the end of the Frontier saga when they split the rebbon.
And the episode at the end of Johto when Ash,Misty and Brock go their seperate ways.

My favorite episodes would be both "Numero Uno Articuno" and "The Symbol Life", the episode when Ash and his Charizard battles against Factory Head Noland. It was the first time that I get to see Articuno actually battle that's not in the games. It was also an interesting match up. Charizard Vs. Articuno...it looked like an epic battle!

Snow way out, Bulbasaur's mysterious garden, A friend in deed, the Joy of Pokemon, just to name a few. There's really too many to count actually, I can't single out an absolute favorite!

My favorite episode is the DP premiere "Following A Maiden's Voyage".

It's because the plot of that episode is focused solely on Dawn, and she's my fave main character from the Pokemon anime.

The one when ash has to go get a ghost pokemon to fight sabrina and he becomes a ghost, either that or the one with the ninja gym leader, or the one when they are in the sunken ship, or the one when they are underground with the ancient pokemon.

'Bye bye butterfree' and 'charizards great ambition' were my favs includeing the first episode.'Bye bye butterfree' was the saddest episode ever and 'pallet party panic' when Ash releases his pigeot was sad too.
