^ as far as I know, this is actually Darkrai's second appearance in the anime. I think Darkrai's first appearance was in the episode "Sleepless In Pre-battle!" If you've seen that episode before.
Yeah, this first league episode, at times, felt a bit too rushed.
The Heracross/Kricketune battle was definitely the better battle!
I really can't wait to see who exactly this mystery trainer is!
That one Barry quote was pretty funny!
"Hey! that's Ash battling out there!"
Me: a doyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Conway: "Conway's the name!
Me: "...and stalking is my game!"
Or, what I came up about stalker Conway with while reading this thread:
"Stalking is my business... and business is good!"
