  • A Romeo and Juliet version. Only this one has a happy ending

    This was a very touching episode. I liked the whole thing. For starters I was surprised to hear there was Nidoran in this episode (it was their first appearance). I thought the scene where Pikachu spotted that beautiful fruit and calling out the Nidoran's name while creeping towards it was both cute and funny. When I saw those two Nidoran together, I thought it was really cute. What I really liked about the episode was at the end when they battled Team Rocket, those Nidoran were quite a team. When Team Rocket turned on that vaccum and Pikachu used a branch to get up to them, I thought that was funny. What I really thought was touching was when the Nidoran kissed and evolved. This episode showed there might be something between Ash and Misty (one of the reasons I hope she comes back for good). I really thought the ending of the episode was good, with the music playing and church bells ringing (while Team Rocket was trapped inside them).moreless
  • Ash and his friends help out two trainers to understand that both of their Pokemon are in love.

    This episode was so romantic because both Nidorans (male and female) fell in love with each other. As both of their trainers deny that, TR comes in to steal both. As Ash found them, both Nidorans battle TRs Pokemon and wins. They blast off and both evolve into Nidorino and Nidorina. As they leave, the two trainers tell them thanks for everything.
