Lucky them who win. We barely have anything regarding this episode outside of the fact that it could be a Pikachu backstory episode. Since a Kangaskhan is involved, there's a chance it's the Safari Zone, so some sort of poaching topic (TR?) might be broached.

Also, think we might see Kaiser and his revolvers if the setting is indeed the Safari Zone?

Kaiser yes, revolvers no otherwise this episode is likely to get banned

Is Friday only for the first week, or is it the new schedule for the series?

Most likely not...
Not only has it been SO long, but they'd probably like us to pretend it doesn't exists as they do.
Hell, the problem's even worse NOW than it was back then.o_O

Manga should've been PS (Pokemon Special) or PA (Pokemon Adventures)
Too little, too late bro...

I wonder if Pikachu was born at Sakuragi Laboratory. The scene we've been shown could be a flashback Pikachu has upon returning there. Or Ash could find that out somehow and that could be what brings him to the lab.

My take is that it won't be a Pikachu backstory episode at all

I did call it PM001 at first but on checking the upcoming Bulbapedia pages, it was showing as SS001 so I changed it
Ooh ok, I don't like this "SS" prefix for reasons I won't mention here... but the Bulbapedia staff took that decision, oh well, it's still inaccurate because this series is NOT Sword & Shield, I wonder what prefix will Serebii use...

They're not using the "PM" acronym because it's used by the Pocket Monsters manga (the one that has Clefairy in it).

Information courtesy of Dephender on Serebii

Title confirmed for the episode, Pikachu is Born

Summary:

In a forest somewhere in Kanto, there once was a lonely Pichu. This Pichu, who was still very young, went through a certain encounter and farewell. This all took place shortly before Satoshi and his partner Pikachu started their journey. This is the story of how everything began.

I guess I was right about it being a Pikachu backstory. I hope this series is very heavy on continuity.
