I thought it was great to see Elekid, finally. Though this one seemed to be more arrogant than the one in the Pikachu short. I also LOVED that this was the first episode colored digitally.
I thought that James and his little story in this episode was a nice touch, anything to get away from Casey. James trading away his Victreebel was odd, and even worse, the fact that he got a Weepinbell which evolved into a Victreebel again :/
At least he released it so it could be happy. Casey didn't seem too strong, but the fact that she caught Elekid surprised me. Good for her. 9/10
