What I find even funnier is that during the entire run of the show, Pikachu has never been dexed once (at least as far as I know).

I find it funny that almost everyone wants Max and Brock off the show, yet when they get starring roles in episodes, almost everybody loves it.
Ash, May, and Brock vs. Jessie & James was one of the best battles in AG. Every single one of those attacks looked like they had some real power behind them, and it's nice to see them equally matched for once, considering we don't see Team Rocket as a threat nearly enough. I loved Combusken, Ludicolo, and Dustox getting spotlight, and the new animation on Cacnea's Pin Missle completely trumps the old one.
I guess I'm in the minority because I thought the vocal song fit that scene perfectly. 4KIDS even surprised me by not having any talking in the background while the song was playing. It was a very well-handled scene.
My second favorite character in the series got a great chance to shine. I'm happy.
