i think this episode was cool and im glad it didn't take Dawn's Cyndaquil nearly as long to evolve as it did ash's. i'm also excited she decided to go to Howen instead of staying in Sinnoh.
and i think people are now expecting a R|S|E remake because:
-At the end of the Howen region they all traveled to Kanto and there were R|B|Y remakes (FR|LG)
-May then traveled to Jhoto while Ash went to Sinnoh and there were G|S|C remakes (HG|SS).
so they think now that Dawn is going to Howen while Ash is in Unova there will be a R|S|E remake which is possible but we are gonna have to wait a few yrs. for that if it happens. but i can totally see it happening, i hope they do it would be cool. so only time will tell.
