I really do hope they don`t end Satoshi`s journey here, to be honest I really think it`s far too soon, we`ve been with this show for so long, there`s no reason to stop.

Aside from that, this episode was one of my favourites in a long, long time. The introduction of such an ominous character, even controlling a Darkrai, with such litte information really provides some phenomenal suspicion and foreshadowing. Additionally, seeing Heracross, one of my, if not my favourite of Satoshi`s Johto Pokemon battle in close-combat using Focus Punch like that was incredibly fun to watch. This is becoming what seems to be the greatest Pokemon League Tournament, Satoshi is even splicing in his older Pokemon with his new, and the story is better than every before. I`ll definitely be watching this episode again in the future.

This was a good episode. I really liked how some of Ash's older Pokémon made an appearance. I wish that he had a Typhlosion but I guess then it wouldn't be as cute. Even so, it was nice to see his Heracross and Quilava again.
Ash's opponent was also interesting since he played music while he battled. Given this I thought he would have a Chatot but strangely, he didn't. He took his loss really well and that was also something I really liked. Perhaps the most interesting part of the episode was when Quilava and Armaldo knocked each other out. It was actually surprising to me that Quilava could take out a Pokémon so large but it did, although it did have a type advantage.
Overall this was a good start to the Sinnoh League.
