This was an awesome episode, I really enjoyed watching it. This is the first episode where fossil Pokémon were mentiond. Also, it's the first episode where fossil Pokémon(Omastar, Omanyte, Kabuto, Kabutops)actually appeared in the anime. It's interesting how the explosion of the dynamite awakend the fossil Pokémon, who were sleeping for... who knows how many years? They were already mad .....but they got ever more mad when Team Rocket tried to catch them. Seriously, how stupid Team Rocket are? Ash ran for his life, but a hungry Aerodactyle caught him and started to fly off with him. It was really awesome when Charmender evolved after the Aerodactyle mocked him, sadly he was still disobidient. I really felt sorry for Ash when he thought that Charmeleon evolved into Charizard to save him, but Charizard just wanted to battle the Areodactyle. :/
Misty's idea of getting Jigglypuff to make everyone fall asleep was DUMB! If Charizard didn't saved him, Ash could've died after falling from that high! I hated the scene where that Jigglypuff scrubbled on their face, geez I hate it when she does that. Anyway, I thought It's quite surprising that it took only 3 episodes for Charmelon to evolve into a Charizard, but I'm glad that he finally evolved. Later in the series, he would turn into a powerhouse of Ash's team.
Ash found a Pokémon egg towards the end of the episode, too bad he couldn't keep the Pokémon after it hatched from the egg in EP050.
