  • Stupid mystery has stupid solution

    This was one of the worst episodes of the first season. Kids are missing... Pokemon fainting... sounds interesting, prepared to be surprised! Might be the most boring criminal case EVER. There ends up being some sort of homo sexual club in the city filled with people who have trouble sleeping. Instead of going to bed or taking medicine like normal people, they use Pokemon to go to sleep. Some how a hypno sitting on top of the building, has enough power to make people on the other side of the city go to sleep. So in conclusion: Stupid mystery. The only point of the episode was Misty catching Psyduck at the end.moreless
  • A Pokemon's hypnotic waves that controls human behavior. Hmm...

    This episode wasn't that bad as two Pokemon, Drowzee and Hypno's hypnotic waves caused strange human and Pokemon behavior. This episode focuses on that said problem. Misty (unfortunately) is one of the affected one, along with other kids in some HopHop Town. It was funny to see Misty act like a Seel, especially since she's fond of the water types. Too bad there wasn't one here for her to capture, lol. As for the other kids imitating random Pokemon during their hypnosis time, I thought it was totally random.

    Usually you would see Team Rocket causing trouble, but they got less screen-time here, which is really sad to me. All they did was quickly plot to steal the Hypnotic Pokemon, and that plot was so rushed they they blasted off since they RUSHED to steal it.

    The best thing that has happened so far: Misty "accidentally" capturing a not-so-bright Psyduck with a headache. Since she's stuck with it, no she forbid anyone to congratulate her generic capture.

    Not ab ad episode, but give Team Rocket some screentime next time.moreless
  • Drowzee and Hypno! Talk about hypnotic...

    This episode is exciting because it featured Drowzee and Hypno using Dream Eater on everyone, causing some Pokemon and small children to react differently. That was until the spell was broken after Drowzee fixed things to normal. Well, I found it weird that other humans was unaffected by this spell.
  • Misty catches Psyduck

    Another episode is like a filler episode with the exception that Misty catches psyduck

    When I see this episode the first time I was thinked when thry aired that episode in wich Ash remember to his mother and she has a trophy? and years later I discovered that episode was banned but backing to the topic I liked that episode especially when James say Why we don't do this before and Jessie says Because the show is only 30 minutes long. Another funny part is seeing the childrens acting like a pokemon. When Misty accidentally catches psyduck I never thougth it was a good pokemon and was only a duckmoreless
