I want to start with XY as soon as is possible.
I have unpopular opinions: I prefer an older character returning but it isn't from the original trio. I was one of the few who liked both DP and BW. And I think that TR shouldn't leave in the anime.
Hmm....I'm guessing this is where that shot of Ash, Bonnie, Clemont, Pikachu, and Dedenne was from. I wonder who they are battling?? Hopefully it isn't TR in another of their useless schemes.
I hope Nuzzle isn't Pikachu's new move for the region, unless they're going back to ignoring the four move limit and it just sits in its moveset alongside the other four it already has. It just seems underwhelming.
That would line up well with the scene where Pikachu and Dedenne rub cheeks and combine their electricity.
Meh, probably the only "slow" episode we've learned about so far. Not quite filler-ish, as it, most likely, consists of a capture, but still seems a bit weak after the first three seemingly power-packed episodes that start the series off. But it's not a big deal. A capture is a capture, even if the episode in question is a slow-paced one. I feel indifferent on this one. Probably when it airs my opinion will change, but we'll see about that.
So, I'll say it'll be a bonding-before-capture episode and call it a day.
Oh, Cynthia. Where for art thou Cynthia? Heheh. Seriously, where are you!?

I apply Felix's Law: "Smile, tomorrow could be worse."
I do think that Dedenne might have a crush on Pikachu, I don't mind Pikachu learning Nuzzle but I hope it stays exclusive to Dedenne. I wouldn't mind seeing ElecBall getting axed in the future for something new. A rather mundane ability, Cheek Pouch just adds a some health on when a Pokemon eats a berry. So if a Dedenne is poisoned and eats a Pecha Berry it's healed on top of receiving some HP back, so its ability doesn't really matter in this anime neither does the equally as lukewarm Pickup ability. These two abilities are possessed by both of Citron's Pokemon, unless the writers have another Homika moment like back at the Tachiwaki Gym, I doubt Cheek Pouch will ever play a role in the anime.
ope we get some nice battling contributions from Citron throughout XY, Pikachu and Dedenne seem to both be teaming up to battle someone who I desperately hope aren't Team Rocket. They briefly rub cheeks together and fire off their respective Electric-type attacks, I'm hoping Dedenne can use Nuzzle and some type of Fairy-esque move.
