I have to admit i haven't used the cap and diode for years, certainly all the pic's i've used recently have power on reset, so i just use a 10k to 5v
3.8 Power-up Delays
Power-up delays are controlled by two timers so that no
external Reset circuitry is required for most applications.
The delays ensure that the device is kept in
Reset until the device power supply is stable under
normal circumstances and the primary clock is operating
and stable.

Do you use MPLAB X IPE ?

Your not wrong with 10k to 5v. But I use the previous circuit as an isolation circuit which is in the pickit 3 guide figure 3.1..
I have tested it without the diode and cap, and just 10k to 5v.. I still get the same result, everything works and the pic is still running..
Do you use MPLAB X IPE ?
I used IPE in the above tests but other than that only basically if I have to program the same program into several devices..
