Episode Summary

EDIT
Ash Ketchum is finally 10 years old, old enough to become a Pokémon Trainer. He wakes up late, and arrives to Professor Oak's lab late, and all the Pokémon are gone! Ash has no choice but to take a naughty Pikachu. Pikachu won't listen or go inside it's PokéBall, so Ash must drag it along (literally). After many failed attempts at capturing some Pokémon, Ash throws a rock and it hits a Spearow. The Spearow gets angry and starts attacking them! Soon, the entire flock start chasing Ash and Pikachu! Ash, with no Pokemon that will listen to him, he must escape from the raging Spearow. Can they escape and will Ash ever earn Pikachu's trust?moreless
