    The Sinnoh League begins with a long-awaited battle with Ash against Nando.

    I really liked this episode. The battle between Kricketune and Heracross was really swift and fast-paced. Team Rocket was really enjoyable in this episode as well.

    At the end of the day, I give this episode 8.6 points out of 10.

    Why does everyone say "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" nowadays? It's funny but sometimes it could also get really annoying.

    Pretty good ep. I actually thought Heracross vs Kricketune was one of the better league battles, even if the whole battle did come with a bit of a disappointment.

    I know some people thought Nando inclusion in DP was largely pointless, and maybe so, but he gave us some pretty good battles, and I'll miss him.

    Dammit, now I really wanna know what Octillery snacks really taste like!

    I missed that part.

    I liked the Barry parts the most and we finally debut Takuto. Barry's "Oh man oh man oh man" was annoying. But, it was redeemed a few seconds later. I forgot Barry and Conway still hadn't met. Dawn had the best line, "Will you boys calm down?!" :D But Barry yelling at Dawn to listen about Darkrai is awesome continuity to keep up with how much Dawn went on and on about cheering on Ash at the Sinnoh League, especially in the Jasmine episode.

    As for Ash's fight, did anyone else feel like Ash didn't start giving it his all until Heracross was fighting Kricketune? I mean, that was when we started seeing the creative strategies and fast paced action. Ash likely specifically chose Heracross because of Sleep Talk thinking Nando would use Kricketune and Sing. Was Ash really this analytical to recall Kricketune using Sing at the grand festival and choose Heracross because of it? Kudos to Ash if he was.

    Can't wait for next week. :D

    Nando wasn't really pointless. He was a unique rival in that he was doing both contests *and* battles. But, he made it further in the Grand Festival than in the Sinnoh League. I personally think he's more the contest type, but that's just me. Although, you can see in the last few minutes of the episode that Ash was teaching him a lot of things about how to interact with Pokemon and the battlefield that's useful in both battles and contests.

    Did the woman in this episode who gave out the store locations have a name that was revealed in this episode? Maybe in the closed captioning?

    I didn't catch one that said verbally. That reminds me, did they change the announcer voice? I think this is the first time since they changed VAs that we've heard the traditional Pokemon announcer.

    Well, the closed captioning didn't say anything.

    I don't think the credits have names on them. They just include the main voice actors and any additional, but they don't say who voices what.

    The credits don't list the names of any characters. The only character whose name is listed in the credits is Pikachu.
    It's good that we got to see the silhouette of you-know-who in this episode.

    I'm avoiding saying anything I shouldn't, but the japanese name doesn't give anything away. :)
