It is a very good episode and i beleive it is one of my favorites. Just one look at this episode you'll see why so many people watch pokémon. The episode ends on a cliff-hanger so you will not know what is comming next. the pokémon company only make cliff-hangers in gym battle ep's to make the tension of a result or somthing on those lines.
The fact that The lead character becomes a pokémon is why i beleve this episode is one of a kind and exactly why i watch pokémon. This is just one of the early pokémon episodes which is very good and intersesting. also i did not give it a 10 because it features a stereotypical british person. the british do not have them accsents featured in this episode and the episode "A Staravia is Born!" in the diamond and pearl episodes of pokemon.
