Good things first: nice with an evolution but it was a bit rushed. Remember the days when Ash actually seemed interested in the evolutions of his Pokemon? Now it looks more and more like any addition to his teeam. Funny every time Brock saw Joy and immidiatly began to raise the electricity- power driven bicycle.
The bad things, well we do have way to many plot holes and contractions in this episode. It was a bit to over the top when a) Dawn and Brock survived standning right next to the fire combustions and b) when Flint fell from high sky and just got back up, expecially when it seemed like the greatest danger in the world when Ash almost did the same thing seconds later.
The obvious things then, well we did now that Sinnoh would go on for some more time so just having Ash winning his last badge, then head off to the GF and then the Leauge would be pretty swift done. It would have taken 7 - 9 eps all together. Now we have a nice time to build a GF arc, then the last Gym (swift won I predict) and at last some great finnishing Leauge arc. And some fillers in between as well. That can be a nice "spring season". And as for Torterra, well Ash now has a very strong a- team. Supplement with some Kanto Pokemons and maybe Bayleef/Sceptile and both his first team and bench will make a powerful line- up in the Leauge.

We say goodbye in the pouring rain
And I break down as you walk away.
'Cause all my life I felt this way
But I could never find the words to say
