Episode 1 - Pokemon, I Choose You!|
Ash Ketchum, a very eager 10 year old can hardly wait to start his Pokemon journey. In all the excitement, Ash over sleeps and is unable to get Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle. Pallet Town’s usual pokemon they give to trainers just starting out. Professor Oak, the distributor of these rare pokemon feels sorry for Ash and gives him a Pikachu, an electric mouse pokemon with a bad temper.
Once Ash and his new Pikachu set out, Ash is ready to start catching them all. His attempt at catching a Rattata fails. So Ash tries his luck by throwing rocks at a Pidgey. By mistake he hits a Spearow, a short tempered bird pokemon. Spearow called his friends to help attack Ash and Pikachu. Ash and Pikachu tried to lose the Spearow in a forest and a river but the attempt failed. In the rush Ash “borrowed” Misty’s bike, sister of the Cerulean Sisters, the gym leaders of Cerulean City Gym. While on Misty’s bike the Spearow are still trying to punish Ash and a thunder storm is starting up. Ash, then realizes that he must face the Spearow and he gives an inspirational speech. The Spearow then go in for the attack. Pikachu realizes how much Ash loves him and uses a thunder shock to get the Spearow to go away.
The powerful duo wakes up to find a rainbow and Ho-Oh flying over it.
