Funny: Pokémon The 'Bridged Series
For a show with only 20 episodes thus far, it's got quite a plentiful number of moments. In fact, the series itself might qualify.

    Main Series 
  • Episode 2: This random bit of trivia from Professor Oak:
    Professor Oak: Pokemon don't die, they faint.

    • Ash finally using Pidgeotto... only for it not to let him finish a sentence.

    • Brock cutting Ash and Misty down from the tree... only for Misty's subsequent complaining to cause him to... ''uncut'' them down from the tree.
    • The battle between Pikachu and Bulbasaur:
      Ash: Okay, so if Bulbasaur can finally kill Pikachu, I wonder what color I can pick for the next one. Blue Pikachus are nice!
      Pikachu: *You* are an asshole.
      Ash: Maybe if I hold off on a few months, I can get next year's model!
      Pikachu: Are you ignoring me or are you just stupid?
      Ash: I want a sunroof!
      Pikachu: That's what I thought.
      Ash: And the sunroof can eat tomatoes for lunch!
      Pikachu: There's just one problem.
      Ash: And what's that?
      Scene cuts to a defeated Bulbasaur.
      Pikachu: The battle's over!
      Ash: Oh crap!
      Pikachu: You really weren't ignoring me, were you?
    • All five of the episode stingers.
    • The end line of "Bulba Butt Butter."
  • Episode 11:
    • The first 40 seconds consists of the characters staring open-mouthed and gormless while going "ahhhhhhhhhhhhh". It's funnier than it sounds.
    • Possibly the closest that Ash and Pikachu have had to a bonding moment:
    Ash: Jesus don't know shit!
    Pikachu: Woah, woah, woah! I '''agree''' with you?!?!
    • The entire scene where Nurse Joy offers Ash a Thunder Stone, from when she offers it to Ash to when Pikachu orders everybody to get the fuck out of his room.
  • Episode 15:
  • Episode 16: The whole sequence of arriving at Sunshine Valley Happy Place Town City Valley, including The Narrator Railroading them into liking it.
  • Episode 18:
    • Koga explaining that Aya was raised in a very strict household. Then he continues with:
    Koga: She say, "I want mommy nipple." I say, "NO!" Instead, I give her father nipple.
  • Episode 19:
    • Mikey's brothers and their obsession with the letter 'M'. Well, except for Frank.
    • Eevee and Vulpix (referring to Misty and Brock, respectively):
    • Team Rocket FINALLY getting to finish their motto... with Mikey's brothers talking over the last few lines so loudly we don't get to hear it.
      • Followed by Mark freaking out over Team Rocket standing on the table and James eating his award-winning main course.
    • Frank's battle strategy when facing Team Rocket:
    Frank: Vaporeon, just go away or something!
  • Episode 20:
  • The Special Episode has its funny moments, such as:
    • Ash telling Tracy that "Misty is dumb." And then, Tracy says, "Hey Misty. Ash says you're dumb." And then Misty steps on Tracy's foot.
    • And in Part 1, whatever Misty says, Tracy says something different. In other words:
    Tracy: Did somebody say [word that is different that Misty said]?
    Misty: No!
    • In Part 2, Ash sees a fish and asks Misty if the gang is going to have dinner. Then, when Rudy Esquire V dances with Misty...
    Ash: Hey Misty, make us dinner! I'm hungry!
    • The reference to Part 1:
    Misty: Did someone say free food?
    Tracy: Did someone say "in the nude?"
    Ash: I don't think they did.
    • Rudy Esquire V also tells at Mari to sit in complete silence and at times yells at Mari to remind her.
    • Also, when Ash cheats and defeats Rudy Esquire V's Starmie, this happens.
    Announcer: Starmie has been killed! Ash is the winner!
    • And after that, when Rudy Esquire V offers his Gym Badge, Ash gets excited, and when Misty says, "Don't touch it," Ash is disappointed.
    • In Part 3, Brock gives Ash and Misty their drinks:
    Misty: I don't want extra cream! I don't want cream! I don't want this!
    • Also, Brock explains that he did not jump off the blimp: he died. Ash reacts with this:
    Brock: All better now though, don't worry.
    • Brock explaining how he came back.
    Brock: After I fell out of the blimp, my entire body shattered. I went to Hell-.
    Misty: Of course.
    Brock: And long story short, I bred Satan. And apparently he doesn't like sharing the power with another Satan, so they're probably fighting to the death right now to see who gets to rule the Underworld. They kicked me out in case I was going to breed another one. I was.
    Misty: You bred Satan?!
    Brock: I told you; I can breed anything.
    Misty: I'm really not sure if I prefer you or Tracy.
    • Pikachu telling Ash to go to sleep after Ash's every sentence.
