I must say, I was pretty excited to see these 2 new episodes of the new series! I actually wanted to stock up on my favorite food and drink and watch it.
-First let me get this out the way: I was hoping the VAs would change for this. But i should've known better. Like Oak's, Delia's, and Team Rocket.
-I like how much screentime Oak and Delia are getting seeing as they haven't been seen in ages.
-I liked Ash's enthusiasm about seeing a whole new region and all new Pokemon. I actually understand why Ash would think that a Pikachu in Unova isn't that big a deal 'cuz he's been with him for practically 15 years. Yet he's still 10. (GTFOH)
-Seeing Zekrom was kind of a "wow" to me. Never in all the years of the anime has the main legendaries appeared in the very first episode. (Well, I guess Ho-oh counts but was introduced in the 2nd gen)
-Trip! I like that name! Definitely urban for an urban region like Unova. He seems ok to me.
-The Pokemon starter voices was okay especially Oshawatts. I really hope that they put some uniqueness into these voices this time around.
-Team Rocket. ACTUALLY didn't annoy me in the first 2 eps. I'm loving it! But how i wish the original VAs from the first season could take over this time around. I don't mean Maddie B. (R.I.P) I mean the very first Meowth VA before Maddie took over. He would be perfect for new TR.
-I also like how Giovanni's VA is back and that he's going put in alot of appearences this time around. No more dream sequence Giovanni!
I'm giving this a 9/10 Great start to a new gen. I'm actually looking forward to future eps and the games themselves which really surprises me that the new series is already starting and the games haven't come out yet until next month. They usually tie in within a week or two.
I'm really liking this new gen so far. Makes me wish I could change my user name from G4Pokefan to G5Pokefan. Because I wasn't a fan of the 4th gen that much anyway.
