Just saw the preview for the episode. Animation looks fine to me. Ursaring looks a little off, but since he's being String Shot, I'll let it slide. I love the chubby Caterpie. And I love the fact that this episode revolves around the Caterpie, Metapod and Butterfree family. Butterfree is my favorite Pokémon and Ash's Butterfree is my second favorite anime Pokémon (first being the 3rd Movie's Entei). We haven't really had a Butterfree-centric episode since "Bye Bye Butterfree" (unless there was one in the Sinnoh saga, which I missed completely :/). So I'm very excited! Can everyone just stop complaining and be happy that 1) Pokémon is still around and 2) that we get to see old relationships re-explored and strengthened in the anime? I personally would love Butterfree to come back this episode, but he obviously won't.
And since they are revisiting the rest of Ash's old Pokémon, and since the gang is on their way to Kanto, I don't doubt that we WILL have a Pidgeot episode. Wether or not he'll see it or help a Pidgeotto evolve into one (like this episode) or some other crazy thing, we WILL have our Pidgeot episode. Pidgeot really needs it, too. He's the only member of Ash's original six not to have any sort of character development at all. Bulbasaur became a leader at Oak's place, Squirtle matured and is now running the Squirtle Squad as a group of firefighters, Butterfree evolved and found a mate, Charizard has gone through the most drastic personality changes and Pikachu has obviously gone through development. So I'd like to see Pidgeot being some sort of Viridian Forest sage or something.
Just something small but not too revealing:

Ursaring will be in this episode. That means: someone will be hunted.
Obey the Emperor!
