I totally agree with what Dogasu already said - I felt like Satoshi and Kotetsu's bonding time dragged on for longer than necessary, and this could have been saved for its own episode. I was expecting the battle to be like 2 seconds at the rate their time in the cave was carrying on, but I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Daikenki was really bad ass animated :D It's been a long time since I saw a Pokemon in the anime and liked it more because of it. I always found Daikenki to be kinda derpy, but he was animated really nicely~ Battle was fairly decent, despite being...what...less than half of the episode?
