Actually a pretty decent episode. Here's a few of my favorite parts:
-The battle with Zoey at the beginning was actually pretty cool. Shuckle, especially, was interesting to see in battle.
-Candice's appearance was pretty cool, actually. I like that we're seeing a Gym Leader appear more outside of her battle episodes, and that she's tied into Zoey's character a bit.
-The Paul cameo was appreciated, since we haven't seen him in months.
-Dawn's entire team was present, accounted for, and actually all got some decent training time.
-PIPLUP WAS FROZEN TODAY!
-Cyndaquil and Mamoswine's "Flame-Ice" combo actually looks pretty cool, can't wait to see it used in a Double Performance.
So yeah, I enjoyed this one. I was bothered by the fact that there wasn't much of a BATTLE between Dawn and Zoey, but Kirlia and Leafeon's appearances were decent enough. This pretty much just got my mouth watering to actually see these Pokemon in action, but seeing Dawn come up with an original strategy on screen again was a treat.
