This was the best Birthday Gift EVER so this Episode was a complete 10/10 and this has been the BEST EPISODE OF THE YEAR YET.
Oh the old memories ;')
And these two ^^
Platonic Ship Shippings Time!
Nostalgia overload! And it looked fantastic, too! I love the newer animation and the newer eye style. Older material redone that way? Fantastic!
Gotta love Pikachu going to town on that orange juice.
When Ash got Charizard's Poké Ball, the wrist of his glove was green instead of red. Minor, but yeah.
Aw, Iris thought Charizard was part Dragon. Who can blame her, though? How many of us thought Charizard was a Dragon when we were kids? With some Pokémon, it's not easy to tell what their types are. Like Gyarados or Altaria or...Sylveon.
BEST NON TR EPISODE EVER AND I'VE GIVE IT 10/10! and btw another region another appearance of our old friend (albeit for a cameo) the Humble Magikarp salesman

Pidgeotto! Does anyone remember the trainer in the dub of Mewtwo Strikes Back calling his Pidgeot a Pidgeotto? Even the Japanese animators are prone to mixing them up it would seem!
Other than that and a few issues with some of the updated character models, I absolutely loved the flashbacks and seeing Charizard in action again. This was an episode for old and new Pokemon fans alike.
I've smiled so stupidly since this episode aired. All that nostalgia. All those old episodes re-animated (Damien in BW!Style?! Koga? NEVER saw that coming!), it's just.. after all these years, seeing those old episodes again.. it's amazing, I love it. Seeing still-shots of the "old days" in Battle Frontier and DP can't compete with how amazing it is to have entire scenes re-animated.
Seeing Pidgeotto again makes me eager to hopefully see the day when Ash will return to Viridian Forest to reunite with Pidgeot. I may just be drugged with excitement, but maybe the writers will, eventually, tie the loose plot ends together? We even saw Primeape for heaven's sake! They haven't forgotten!
....Anyone else think Unfezant is having a field day among those manly male birds at Oak's?
Araragi's for all that time - she might as well go to Oak's and have some fun. First good decision by Satoshi for once when it comes to taking care of his birds.
Ranma ½ fan. And I never got into shipping flamewars about it either.
Satoshi was really entertaining in this episode for me. I haven't found him to be so fun to watch in such a long time.
I really am in love witht his episode, all the flashback, whats nice is now Dento and Iris can't call him a newbie HA Iris making a mistake and thinking it was a dragon type.
Good to see Tracey and Oak again, never knew how much I missed them till now. Seriously though, all those flashbacks really got to me, they almost made me want to cry. I hope the Mewtwo film has flashbacks of the first film and the special, that'd make me so happy. It was also nice seeing Brock and Misty again, even if in flashbacks kind of made me want them get a cameo at the end of this series. Too bad Team Rocket wasn't in this episode, oh well maybe they'll talk about him in the next one.
Ash fan. Multi Ash shipper =]
