Great, so now we've lost possibly my favorite character introduce in DP or BW. First time I've actually enjoyed someone's presence on this series in a long time, too. I'm sad he's leaving, actually. Yeah, his food puns are definitely Grade-A crap, but Cilan was a really funny character at times and I enjoyed his tenure on the series. After what DP did to Brock IMHO, Cilan was just..I can't believe how grateful I am he showed up when he did. He never came off as a dick to me, never outright rude, albeit I can see why he was seen as TOO perfect, but I never felt that way so much as he was too flashy at times. I always thought Cilan/Dent was a goofball who wasn't afraid to be himself, and I greatly admire and enjoy his presence in BW. *sigh*

Iris just came off as an egotistical holier- than-though person when she said that. That's the only thing I didn't like about Iris, though. XD.
Ash is a joke compared to what he used to be. Just a caricature of his former self. Same goes for Team Rocket. You can only repeat the same BS so many times with them before they grow stale. Their current dub voices don't add any excitement to the role, either, so that doesn't help. And since the switch, it's always felt like Ash and TRio are just shadows of themselves...almost fake and like we're hearing inferior quality versions of the characters now. Ash is more tolerable than Team Rocket is now, but that's not saying much. XD.
