    A pretty good way to commence the new series/season/region.

    And this has been stated several times, but the fact that Pikachu was defeated by that Snivy is just..sad. I guess that's why the games =/= the anime
    God, that Pikachu-Snivy battle was terrible writing. Sure Pikachu didn't have any electric attacks, but he tied with a Damn Latios a week earlier...

    This is an excellent way to kick off the Best Wishes! series.

    Zekrom zapping Pikachu, Lilia's (Iris) introduction, and even the battle with Diaz (Trip) were well done. And even though Team Rocket didn't do anything before Zekrom came in, them being serious was a step in the right direction and darkened the atmosphere.

    My goodness, this is how you start a series! I was fed up with the way the show was being handled through Advanced, and when Battle Frontier started I had had enough. I skipped forward to the Diamond and Pearl series but the didn't feel like it was any different than in Advanced, so I skipped forward again to Black and White.

    And wow was this a much needed change. Amazing new art style, awesome new voice acting, and the episode unfolded so perfectly! Ash got a new rival right off the bat, a mysterious and powerful legendary was introduced as well, and his Pikachu got it's butt whooped! I know many people feel the Pikachu Snivy battle was cheap, unfair, and poorly written, however the situation was 100% understandable and I believe it was great for Ash's character.

    This was an episode that re-sparked my interest in the show. I'm super excited to get to watch the rest of the series now!
    Someone once told me that Misty's cameos in Advanced Generation help make it easier knowing that she is no longer a series regular. They couldn't have been more wrong. After she leaves behind Togepi she returns to her gym more alone than ever AND ON TOP OF THAT, her last cameo was in 2005. 2005!?!?!? ITS BEEN TEN YEARS SINCE ONE OF THE CAST WHO STARTED THE SHOW WAS ACTUALLY ON THE SHOW!?!?

    Why do we even watch Pokemon anymore

    Too bad that the series started to go downhill after Nimbasa City

    When this was on CITV I missed this episode and the last of DP because I decided to watch The World Cup Highlights for the 13283489034890th time that day.

    Wow, when I heard that BW was supposed to be a sort of 'reboot' for the show, they weren't kidding, what with the show immediately staring like it's the very episode of the series.
    Not that I'm complaining because of that. I mean, you'd hardly notice he just finished traveling the Sinnoh region one episode before.

    Trips personality and attitude towards Ash, to me, seems like a mix of Gary and Paul turned up to eleven.

    I already miss how TR use to behave for most of the season,. Yeah, I said it. I enjoyed their zany antics.
    Bt I also like how they're more serious about their line of work. I mean, change is always nice.

    All of the suspense that this episode ended with was pointless. Pikachu's electricity dilemma was solved in the first two minutes of the next episode, and none of the characters had to do anything for this to happen.

    As for the rest of this episode, it was lackluster at best. Trip never interested me.

    I agree. It was odd Pikachu's electrical problem did not persist. I wonder they intended to make it one of those scenarios where Pikachu gets reset again, which is what supposedly happened in Hoenn.

    It wasn't that bad. There were some nice Pikachu/Ash interactions. I liked the way Pikachu was feeling all bad because he has to have all those tests and Ash is really concerned when the lights go and Pikachu starts sparking in pain. And they way they hugged after the storm was really cute as well.
