Tiss, is a Shame that Cilan did NOT Get the Gyarados, it would have been Cool.Shame Cilan didn't get that Gyarados.
I'm inclined to agree with this. It was a shame they didn't acknowledge each others ties to Ash.I didn't like the fact that they never learn they were both Ash's friends... they kept teasing about it with them both being excited to see a Pikachu but then realize it's a different one and being all "of course there's no way he'd be here"... and their mutual "I used to cook for my friends"...
They didn't have to say it from the beginning, but I'd love them to finally introduce themselves in the end of the ep and then go like "wait... you're...!!" and end with that
Oh well, at least we finally got to see a female Pikachu in the anime... only took them about 8 years to do that
