I haven't watched it but from the pictures is seems like a great episode.
Looks like we get new characters in this episode. A male with Blue hair, a female with Red hair, and a talking Meowth...oh wait a second they're not new they're team rocket, almost didn't recognize them due to the fact they haven't been any episodes for a while now. Glad to see they're back. Looks like the Team Rocket plot is focused on a bit in this episode too, a start up for the next two episodes.
Venipede seemed cool, kind of cute at times too.
Trip has Lampent which is cool since I like that Pokemon's line up, so hopefully it stays with him and uses it a bit. Also looks like Tranquil is still with him.
Ash's Pidove evolved, so it ended up being the first to evolve on Ash's team after all, although it wasn't the first evolution of the show, Sandile got that honor, still second is good. Hopefully it's in the gym.
Arty is awesome as always.
Herdier is a police Pokemon too it seems.
Nurse Joy doing some stuff too, although I could do without Audino but then again when you see one the other most likely is just around the corner.
Juniper sees some strange things happening and goes to Ash for help, now they are off to Desert Resort it seems, so the Team Rocket and Team Plasma plot does take part in the Desert Resort, interesting.
