Having gotten to see the episode in action now, I'm officially in love with Hikozaru and Zugaidosu ._.; They're so CUTE! ><;; Seeing Satoshi cheer for a Gym Leader was slightly off-setting, though. Stealth Rock looks incredible. I'm gonna have to remember that one.
Poor Zugaidosu... it was like Elekid broke its leg XD. Shinji's aggression is top-notch. I like him even more now. It was a really intense battle, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
