The battle was pretty lackluster with only Pikachu and Tsutarja putting up a fight, while Pokabu, Mijumaru, and Mamepato were just complete embarrassments.I was hoping that this battle would make me like Shooti a little more, but it didn't.

And the TR highway chase was good up until the jet packs...

So far, BW has yet to impress me. I really want to like it, but I can't honestly say that I do at this point.
This. Even though Ash has new pokemon, it still shouldn't really be this uneven. Perhaps if it were a 3 on 3 it would be more understandable, but this is just Ash vs Paul all over again, except without any interesting parts....
