    I think like with any fandom, people appreciate when the writers throw back a reference to an older installment of the series or franchise. I frankly don't see what's so weird about it.

    The problem I'm having with understanding why people made Pikachu + Ketchup a "thing" in the first place. It's a forgettable throwaway gag from an episode that debuted a million years ago. It's not the kind of thing I'd expect anyone to pick out and then remember for years and years after the fact.

    Why is Pikachu + Ketchup a thing when, say, "Nyasu loves round objects" isn't? Why aren't people clamoring for the return of "Satoshi wants to eat Koiking"? Or any other random little one-off characteristic that's brought up once or twice and is then never mentioned again?

    (And, more on-topic...the Pikachu + Ketchup thing in this episode is basically this: Pikachu gets ketchup on his hand and then licks it off. The end. There's little else in the episode more insignificant than that)

    The ketchup gag was a HUGE hit in the North American fandom back in the day. It was a meme before memes were much of a thing. As for why, I can't say exactly - it could just be an "Americans like ketchup" thing.

    - Korrina is a fun character, as well as a bit sadist. She seemed to enjoy her Lucario beating Pikachu way more than she probably should
    - This is the first Lucario to appear in the anime to not have a "look at me, I am so bad ass" tryhard aura. I am still a bit sick of seeing Lucarios everywhere, though
    - Leader: "I am the Gym Leader of Blah City" Ash's crew: "EEEEEEEHH?". Seriously, stop this crap, writers
    - Oh my, Pikachu's likeness for ketchup! This bring back some good memories
    - This show would be much better with Korrina in the cast instead of Ms. Bland Love Interest
    - Why wasn't Team Rocket cut from the show yet? My god

    The episode was far better than the Diantha and Mega Gardevoir one. 8/10.
