    I loved this episode especially the archive footages of when jesse hated caterpie!I loved the moral to the story!I think Caterpie is adorable!He is 1'0".My favorite part was when Caterpie evolved into Metapod!It had a creepy voice!it was MEDAPOD!(robotic voice) Metapod was huge but luckily caterpie climbed that big tall flight building so it could evolve into a butterfree!So it wont destroy the earth.Love is right i love this little epi.It seemed so short because the commercials were so long!!!!!!! In my opinion the episode was delicious and about only 20 minutes.Please repeat this episode again i would want this more than watching a new episode of danny phantom yes im sure of that hahahahahah!moreless
  • A good episode, but not that good

    8.0
    Caterpie's Big Dilemma is about a Caterpie who eats a special invention of Dr. Gordon's and becomes a giant Caterpie. After Team Rocket finds out about it, they steal some of the invention to make Dustox and Cacnea huge, but they still can't kidnap Dr. Gordon like they wanted too. This episode was not one of my favorites. I found it pretty boring and hard to kepp interested in. It was a good idea, but I don't think the writers did a good job writing out the storyline. I think it should have had a little more action. Overall, Caterpie's Big Dilemma is not a classic, but still good, so I give it an 8 out of 10.moreless
  • It was ok, but could have been better.

    8.0
    I was really looking forward to this episode and was slightly disappointed. I expected more but the episode was still good. The episode had its funny moments like when Giant Cacnea tried to hug James and ending up squashing him, now that's love! Another funny moment was when Dustox shrunk back to normal size in mid-air and just flew away and let everyone fall to the ground. I would have also liked to have seen more of the battle with Giant Dustox and Giant Butterfree. Plus, what ever happened to Cacnea! Overall, this is a good episode but could hae been better ins ome places and it has some funny moments.moreless

    don't get me wrong, pokemon is a great show. but do you really think we need more giant pokemon roaming the earth.

    and why caterpie? i used to love that little worm so much, but they just had to ruin it for me. and what a stupid and pointless use for a rare candy. i thought they were supposed to make a pokemon stronger, not act as a mutating steroid. this is the fourth time ive seen a giant pokemon( look back at a first or second season episode and you'll see a giant alakazam, gengar and jigglypuff battle it out) and it was still pathetic. they have over used this story so many times that i do not recomend this episode to anyone.moreless
