I really cried in this episode  Pikachu Crying Plz  Mostly because I thought they really were going to die then I remembered that it would continue but I still cried anyways.

is this from that episode where charizard comes back and ash tells his friends the things they've gone through? I keep hearing about that episode, I seriously want to see it.

my first episode of pokemon was the very first airing of the very first episode. i remember watching it before going to school and loving Pikachu... of course the moment Charmander appeared episodes later he kicked Pikachu out of the #1 spot for my fav pokemon.

Ohmigosh!.... do you mind if I ramble a little bit since you did ask questions?

My first episode.... I barely remember now, but I think it was "Ash Catches a Pokemon". As for my favorite episode.... gosh, I have a few but since Misty is my favorite character "Princess Versus Princess" and "The Misty Mermaid" stick out in my memory. I also like "The Problem with Paras" because the "character of the day" had the same name as me and I also liked "Lights, Camera, Quacktion!" because I enjoyed seeing a female trainer with my favorite Pokemon, Raichu. I already said my favorite character is Misty, and my favorite Pokemon is Raichu (with Keldeo now being a close second favorite for beingvoiced by the amazing Vic Mignonga) but I can't say I have a favorite "anime" because I consider it all ONE anime; the generation doesn't matter to me, I've enjoyed it all from the beginning.
