At last, the Unova League! After all that work, Ash has finally managed to make it to the Pokémon League. That didn't take too long now did it? Probably could have had a fare few better episodes and plots leading up to it, but so long as we got there, I digress.
To kick off with the first episode, let's get right down to the most shocking part about the episode: They finally said Stephan's name right! I found that to be quite funny.
Overall, a pretty solid episode. I couldn't help but notice the lack of excitement level present, however, compared to previous league episodes in seasons past. It just didn't have that certain spark that the anime has when Ash finally makes it to the region's league tournament. Did anyone else feel this way?
And like most of the Black and White season, the battles were quickly brushed upon. I'm kind of surprised at how quickly Ash and Trip are battling one another, but at the same time I'm okay with it. It kind of proves my point in an earlier thread that the writers really don't care for Trip too much as a rival and just want to wrap up his storyline with Ash as quickly as possible.
If only they had introduced Cameron earlier.
