          Pros
          Ash training his team
          Gladion appearance and attitude
          Akala reference and Ash seems to take an interest in Continental Crush
          Lillie and Gladion relationship revealed (Gladion won't battle in front of her) and a sprinkling of backstory

          Cons
          Team Rocket ruined this episode. The worst of it is was so obvious and yet still disappointing when it happened.
          The other classmates were strictly speaking, not really relevant

          Overall: 7/10. A good episode, ruined by Team Rocket.

          Best reaction: Lillie, for Ash letting Gladion leave.

            I just had to post this because of Gladion:

            Spoiler:


            Since Continental Crush sparked Ash's interest to challenge Olivia, what would interest Ash to go to Ula'ula Island?

              Well the Dub of this Episode finally aired. Have to agree that Gladion is what inspired Ash to go to Akala and challenge Olivia. One could argue this was the Episode that spurred Olivia to appear 4 Episodes later and bring the class on a special trip to Akala just so Ash can fulfill his Trial challenge. Question now becomes, who acts as the trigger for Ash to travel to the next island? Can't wait for the dub of Episode 28(will be interesting to see the Lana Home run scene).

                Good episode other than Team Skull and Team Rocket's appearances because of the higher than normal amount of battling. Gladion is very intriguing and I like him more than Ash's other rivals besides Gary. He's mysterious and tough, but also willing to battle Ash and complimentary unlike Trip, Paul, and season 1 Gary who were pretty much just jerks. The story with him and Lillie is definitely interesting too. Gladion may just be the character that provides the spark this season needs.

                If anyone's wondering who Gladion's voice actor is, it's a guy named Eddy Lee.

                Never heard of him before, so I guess he's another completely new voice actor. It's like TPCi has an annoying habit of choosing these never-heard-of newbies when it comes to voicing new characters in XY and SM so far.

                Lana's VA was also someone who hadn't had any previous credit prior to the SM series either, while Lillie's only had one notable credit prior to SM, which was voicing one of the Team Flare scientists. Kiawe's VA is familiar to those who watch abridged videos, but other than that he's had no other credits before SM.
