This episode was very good. Glad that Ash signed up for the Pokemon League. It was very odd to see Heatran there though. It was awesome to see Ash's old Pokemon again. Team Rocket trying to steal Ash's Pokemon was annoying. It looks like Bayleef still loves Ash to bits. It was incredibly surprising to see Ash's Cyndaquil finally evolve into a God Damn Quilava. Cool to see more of Ash's Pokemon in the little montage at the end of the episode. Cool to see that Ash is facing Nando in the first round.
