I liked how not only were Cilan and Iris getting into Tepig's battle, but Pikachu as well was really pumped to see Tepig and Snivy crush the "fire warriors." I really wished maybe Snivy would have evolved alongside Tepig, but perhaps that would have taken the spotlight on Tepig's solo evolution. I wonder when Snivy and Oshawott will evolve. For any of the starters, Snivy seems to be the one that's been on the cusp of evolving for the longest.
Shamus was a total creep. I'm so glad Pignite fried him at the end and saw through his lying eyes. I wonder if we'll see a lot more of him in the future?
