I gotta say Ash's voice actor has finally gotten him down, great energy in it at last. May's and Brock's continue to be great (May's crying was just so realistic, the best crying I ever heard in the series) and even Drew was improved (I'd been somewhat disliking his new voice).
So I guess the main point behind the comments on May being too aggressive in battle like Ash wasn't meant to say that such battling has no place in contests (as they said, Solidade was fighting the same way in her other battles), but that rather because Ash always battles this way (except on rare occassions where he has to change things up), May lacked the ability to quickly alter her strategy to the complete opposite of an aggressive style because her own experience in altering strategies to great degrees was limited.
