Since I missed Harley's debut episode, this is the first chance I've had to experience the wonder that is Harley. Excellent voice actor. Though I didn't like Cacturne's VA much at all. I did love the random Pokemon cameos. Holy crap! Is it just me, or is Drew's Roselia giant? Seriously, Roselias are supposed to be a foot tall, but his is at least two.
I love how Harley is setting May up. After what he pulled at Izabe, you'd think she would know not to trust him.
Are you dissing Tonpei? How dare you!
I feel as though the main reason the Grand Festival feels so rushed is because they waste so much time in this and the following episode. The TR scene in this takes up far too much time that could be used to make further appeals or battles, just like the Tonpei sub-plot in next week's Part 2.
Why do so many people hate the Grand Festival? I think it got off to an excellent start. And there was no way May could have won the Grand Festival. Even if she had beaten Drew, she still would have had to face Robert. Who the writers have conveniently given freakishly powerful Pokemon.
