-- the universe won't wait for you
Perhaps once they get back to Pallet Town Tracey will have an active role for a few episodes. I did like him actually, idk why like everyone else can't stand him. He's a cool dude.
I still can't figure out what they're going to be doing in Kanto though. Like Iris and Cilan expressed interest in seeing what Kanto has to offer, but they're probably just going to stop in at Pallet Town and then head off to XY region. Unless they're going to do some filler in Kanto? idk man it just seems weird.
