(1) He is awesome.
(2) He likes Misty/Kasumi.
(3) He likes Brock/Takeshi.
(4) He thinks OS was the best!
(5) He believes that instead of replacing characters OVER and OVER again every 3-4 years, it's better to make the older characters as awesome as they once were through new challenges and facets to their personalities, etc.
...I could go on all day, really. He's just a cool guy.
I agree with all of your points. He has great taste overall, AND he's openminded!
Not all of them, but I agree on MANY points with him on the anime.
