    Grant looks pretty cool, not gonna lie, still wish he was on the main cast.

    The pictures are broke.

    We're seeing Grant and the Battle Chateau already? Dang! He's one of my favorite gym leaders so I hope they treat him well especially after what they did to poor Marlon (the only Unova GL to get barely one episode of focus, irritating...).

    Viola and Grant are wearing special robes/capes. Viola also has her hair tied up back.

    Viola is using her Surskit, while Grant is using his Onix.

    Diggin' Viola's hairstyle. I love it when Gym Leaders appear outside their gym town, especially post-battle. Reminds me of the battle between Roark and Byron, first gym leader versus someone with a type advantage.

    Though Surskit can go 4x with Water-Type attacks.

    Grant looks so much better here than he did in the games and in his official art.

    I'm really excited for this! It's cool to see the Gym Leaders outside of their Gyms for once (aside for say, family like Hyouta and Tougan). It makes the characters seem more special than just people Satoshi meets and battles over a span of two episodes.

    Though I am concerned about one thing...

    Ever since I saw the XY Opening with those silhouetted GLs, my worry voice went "Please tell me Ash isn't going to get all the badges before the next Opening ". And now here's the second Gym Leader making his debut fairly early (though I will cop to the fact we've had badge wins (a lot) closer to each other before)

    Now, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they just showed all the GLs in the Opening for coolness and to hint conflict. Maybe what happened to the Sinnoh GLs will happen to them (maybe even better) and they'll show up a lot and have a lot of depth

    Because surely they wouldn't have Ash get all the Kalos badges in about a year or so, right?

    ...RIGHT?!? 0_0

    The opening could be used for as long as two years. He could certainly get all the badges by then.

    Grant looks really cool. I am actually kind of glad he was shown with an Onix, Amaura and Tyrunt look a bit too cutesy :P. That being said it hope it is added to, and doesn't replace one of, his in-game team. A 3 vs 3 gym battle against him would be lovely.

    Very nice to see Viola one again.

    I hope the writers will learn from their mistake of having Ash finish up so quickly that they ran out of things to do midway through the season in BW. So far, I think the pacing of XY is pretty good, as well as the character development, but I hope that it isn't so fast paced that the show ends before half the generation is over.

    I think you're scared for nothing lol

    We got episode titles until X014 then comes: the ninja/Froakie vs. Frogadier, Malamar, Diantha , Battle Chateau episodes and maybe 3 or 4 more until Grant's Gym.

    That's a 16+ episode gap right there between gym 1 and 2, acceptable imo. By BW023 Ash had 3 badges.

    It COULD, but there's usually a new Opening a year, after all. Though it's not exactly an annual thing. Just look at the wonkiness with BW's openings.
