So I feel like this episode was really the true beginning of everything we know about Pokémon. The TRio's pitfalls and failures. The introduction of the multiple Joys. The mentions of the Pokémon League. The first gym leader proper, first gym battle, first loss, first badge get. Showing us that the anime world doesn't quite conform to game-logic. Backstory for a character. And most of all, Brock joining the team. It's silly and dramatic in a kind of dumb way, but even now entertains and sets a wonderful tone for the years to come. I just think this is where the Pokémon anime really began.

And for next week, how does the Chronicles episode "Putting the Air Back in Aerodactyl!" sound? It's about Gary being a hot scientist so you know.
