Don't die, ketchup!
I liked this episode a lot. I liked how it told the history of Ash's hat.
Excellent episode, grats on ash for filling out his team with a Primeape. Ah Mankey/Primeape the first Pokemon to steal Ashes hat a gag that will run through most of the series. Well other than the stupid riceballs to donuts edit which they beat to death in this episode, I noticed that oak said Gary has already caught 30 Pokemon but in Mystery at the Lighthouse, Oak says Gray has caught 45 Pokémon, also noticed that the writing on the Pokéball in the advert is spelt "POCKEMON LEAG".
Not my favorite episode because Ash gets all beat up by a Pokemon. Kinda violent.
The story overall was too corny for my taste. Mankey stealing Ash's hat and then conveniently evolving? No thanks.
Only good thing was that Primeape chased them all the way to Celadon. 4/10
