In the episode "Hocus Pokemon", Ash and the gang meet up with a
Murkrow-toting witch who is making a potion to allow trainers to
read their Pokemon's thoughts. The final ingredient she needs is
the tear of a Aipom. Predictably, even though she's been searching
months for one, now that Ash and the others are helping her look
one conviently shows up and gets away, as Misty, Brock, Ash, and
the witch all try to tackle it at once, slamming into each other.
Just as predictably, Team Rocket finds out about the spell, and, in
a hair-brained attempt to steal Pokemon, steal the witchs
spell-component case and spellbook, and kipdnap the Aipom. After a
few horrible tries at getting it to cry (the book says tears
attained by violence won't work), our "heros" show up and blast
Team Rocket off again, although not before James' Victreebell
latches his head, managing to garner some tear-jerking laughs from
the Aipom. After they collect the tear, the witch mixes it all
together, telling Ash that Pikachu needs to blast the concoction
with a Thunder Jolt. Pikachu does so, and a yellow fog envelops
Ash. As soon as it clears, we get to see out of Ash's eyes, looking
up--WAY up, at Misty and Brock. Ash makes the comment that they're
looking at him as if he had two heads, and Misty replies by saying
there's only one, and flashing a mirror in Ash's direction.
Suprise, suprise--Ash is now a Pikachu. Luckily, as the witch
explains, the spell isn't permanent, so PikAsh, Pikachu, and a few
other Pokemon go off to play. Ash doesn't change back until the
next episode, "As Clear as Crystal".
This is a picture I found for Hocus Pokemon.
