I haven't watched Pokemon since like... I think Advanced Challenge, or whatever that season was before Battle Frontier. So, I'm actually interested to see if I can tolerate this one. I got super-excited thinking that Ash and Pikachu weren't going to be in this one, and the butler kid was going to be the lead with the dark-skinned girl. Unfortunately, that's not the case anymore, but I'll try it out anyway. Also, I'm expecting lots of Smugleaf in this season, so yeah, I'll be watching it for him. Hopefully his in-show personality will be the same as everyone's been speculating.
