I hadn't really watched the anime since Johto (I stopped watching about halfway through that) so when the Unova adventures started up, I was excited and going to try and get back into it.
Ash's new rival made me want to dragon kick a baby, but I was really excited because Team Rocket was actually being kinda badass again. Like seriously, they were getting **** done, and it was awesome. And Team Rocket always catches the coolest Pokemon.
But the straw that broke the Numel's back for me was that basically every single episode had Iris saying to Ash "You're such a kid" to the point where even when watching an episode for the first time I could pretty much say it along with her.
I hated her...SO much...
