Well, this can be concidered a great ep because it feels new. But aside from than, then we only have a good ep left.

The beginning with Ash following hos mother and Prof. Oak was interesting, but are the two of them (the adults) always together? Not even Tracey was there this time!

For once the Pikachu reset was making sense as someone said, but still, yup a decent Quik Attack should put at least a starter out of commision. Shooti, well he shall be...well interesting to follow but hopw can we belivable think that he is a good rival for a guy who just made it top 4 in a Pokemon League and beat two legendaries?
