So these are like, what, saga review threads? Okay, so far I'm loving the Battle Frontier. Despite its fast pace (or maybe because of it), I'm enjoying it more than I did Johto or Hoenn put together. Ash's team is better than it ever has been, with Sceptile, Swellow, and guest appearances from his old Pokemon. May's team could use a little revising, but at least Munchlax is pretty cool now, and Eevee is a nice addition. Brock's sudden increase in screentime since this saga started excites me; it makes me think the writers have something big planned for him. His team this time around is also pretty cool; I just wish Onix or Ludicolo would return. We haven't had any Max-centered episodes yet, but the way I look at it, we're overdue, and Max episodes are always awesome. Also, I couldn't be happier about James' sudden influx of character development. We've had our share of bad episodes, but I think the good outweighs the bad. The next few episode titles have me on the dge of my seat as well. So far this saga is a big step in the right direction.
