I happened to, for a change, be up early enough yesterday to see Pokémon on Cartoon Network since I had a very early train to catch and was getting ready, and I frankly stopped following after the Nimbasa Subway arc, though I caught a few, perhaps 6 episodes inbetween at random points.
I was surprised by the classic Team Rocket motto, apparently this was the first episode in which it returned, so i guess I lucked out in seeing this particular episode.
Also very surprised by the sudden appearance of N at the end. I heard he eventually did appear a while back in Japan, but I wasn't familiar with WHEN those episodes were scheduled to air internationally, so quite a surprise for me.
Even if Rocket Vs. Plasma had gone as planned, I really never expected the anime to have N appear as a character (especially since he arguably could have appeared as early as the fourth episode of Black/White right after Ash found Tepig in Accumula Town), so I can't wait to see how this progresses.
Also, its almost funny how the dialog practically explicitly BEGS the audience to ignore Pokémon the Movie White/Black by repeatedly insisting that Ash & co had never seen Reshiram before.
