"There's a New Gym Leader in Town!"
Airdate: 4 May 2013 [USA]

Synopsis


Ash&co have made it to Aspertia City to meet the new gym leader Cheren! But it turns out he's a teacher at the Pokémon Trainer's School and is still setting up shop as a proper gym leader, and he's not very confident in his position yet. It's suggested that he battle Ash in an exhibition match for the benefit of small children, but then shenanigans ensue.


So, Cheren's appeared! This episode was pretty good, I thought. The only odd part is that Cheren seems to be significantly older than Bianca. Either that or Bianca's much older than she acts. Whatever, games =/= anime. Oh and I liked that he was unsure of himself and still getting settled into his position. Not usual to see a gym leader like that.

Too bad Ash lost against Cheren. This is so unfair guys. After such hard work in the Unova league. Sometimes I hate Oshawott for coming out and lose in the battles

If it was Pikachu or another Pokémon, I wold have called shenanigans. Since it was Oshawott though, I cut the writers some slack for having Ash lose. As much as I love the little blue otter and as much as he's grown since, he's still one if Ash's weaker links.

I liked this episode though! I liked Cheren not being totally comfortable with his new position as gym leader yet and I liked seeing him as the instructor type. His VA was not what I thougt it would be though. I say this with glee of course, because in the games I always felt as though Cheren came off a bit snotty so to speak. Another reason why I liked this version of Cheren more.

Taking what we've seen thus far intoperspective, the N series has been delightfully enjoyable.
