This was an okay episode. Not amazing, but not terrible.
At least Cheren FINALLY got to show up in the anime. He played such a huge part in the games that it would have been a giant letdown if he didn't. Although, this time around I thought his voice in the BW2 trailer was a TINY bit better than in the series. I just wish the anime writers gave him more time to develop a little more like in the games. They did make him seem tougher with that Shinx.
I always get a kick out of the "what a kid" lines, and it was funny to hear Ash say it. Cilan also got some good spotlight in this episode.
Was it just me, or was there only one commercial break?
