For those who have watched the first two episodes, what do you think about it?
I think the battle scenes were very well done. Pacing and music was good as well. The new opening song was worth listening to over and over again. And Ash's partners seem to be more helpful than before.
Surprisingly great. It seems the writers are doing their best to avoid Unova Ash. Citron's Bunnelby put up a fight but it was clear that Citron himself is a great trainer so It wasn't ridiculous. They have definitely up'ed their game going by past starting episodes. I have not looked forward to a weekly episode of pokemon since the sinnoh league. I only watch the subbed episodes btw if that matters.
