Here is where you can discuss a tale of sanctuary in "Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village."

My review to come forthwith.

I think you have the wrong episode ShadowDeeps. This is the one where Ash captures Bulbasaur, not attempt to evolve it.

But I had to admit, I liked that tornado scene that Team Rocket was in. Really quite interesting. I also felt sorry for them, after all of the traps they went through.

This episode was alright. One of the weaker capture episodes. Overall, an alright episode.

Rating: 7/10

Indeed, although, the prelude to that scene, oh, boy, it was edited. Anyway, here's the episode comparsion, replete with script changes and a paint edit. Enjoy.

Oh yeah, this was kind of boring excluding Ash going on about pirates XD Seriously, I've just realised (I'm slow XD) all of Ash's starter captures are him just saving them so they like him and want to go with him. Oh well.

I can't remember much else except the animation was TERRIBLE this episode.

Didn't Brock have a knife? I liked that part. Otherwise, yeah, it was pretty disposable. And Dogasu does say on all that in the Squirtle comparison, which I'll get into in a few more days.

And I miss Ted Lewis' James, already. At least, Eric Stuart was fine, as he begins his incredible run here, so let's enjoy it when we can..., again. I know I said this on a prior episode discussion, but it needs to be reinforced.

The introduction of my FAVORITE pokemon, Why is Bulbasaur my favorite pokemon, the funny thing is, it's to nostalgic to remember (weird huh ). Plus, this is the only episode with a girl that Brock actually really liked and was shy about.

Did anyone enjoy the Pikachu/Bulbasaur battle? It actually was expressive, for a cheap, cheap series.

Also, now that I understand what the stadium was really for (that ballplayer reference), I'm rather amused by it. As always, it's the little things that can make an episode worthwhile.

Or, at least, it WOULD have been disposable, had it not been for the fact that it was the episode where Bulbasaur was caught.

Right, the whole "capture = plot" formula. Just because there's a capture, it doesn't necessarily mean an episode will be any worthier than, say, a good filler with no captures. It's how it's scripted, and 90% of this one didn't seem worth it to me. There days, I'd like to avoid "oh, there's a capture in this bad episode, so that means I have to pay attention to it."

At least, the capture wasn't last minute, unlike the following two starters. I had a feeling Bulbasaur would want to come along -- just how to go about it.

Hey guys, so I just came across the idea of Pokémon "hacks" and decided to pick up Ash Gray, because I've always wanted a game that followed the anime. I'm currently trying to get to Vermillion, but can't seem to get there. There's no place for me to head south through the Hidden Village. I can't tell you what version I have, when I acquired the game, it was only named "Ash Gray." I created a map of the Hidden Village to show you guys what I'm working with, but I'm not allowed to post a url until after 15 posts or more.
