This episode looks goofy and straightforward. Normally, I love that, but I'm already getting tired of it...
Hopefully the actual episode proves me wrong. It'd be nice to see Ash catch a Pokemon too, but I think we can pretty much rule that out for this one.
Team Rocket continually getting the shaft is disappointing. I don't need them in every episode; I think SM struck a nice balance. So far, however, their appearances are too few.
And honestly, they probably could've been used in this episode. It sounds boring as sin.
