    I thought that this was a pretty decent episode. I was kind of surprised to see that they already arrived in Driftveil City and didn't go straight into the Gym battle. There isn't that much to do in the city in the games, aside from the Team Plasma taking over the storage. I was kind of hoping for a longer gap between his fourth and fifth badge anyway, so not going straight into the Gym introduction is okay with me. Charles seemed like a fun character. Part of it does come from being voiced by Dan Green and it sounded like he was having a fun time, especially when he became the Mighty Accelguard. The initial setup reminded me a lot of that Gligarman filler episode from way back in Johto, but they made the Mighty Accelguard a bit more clumsy and not praised by the whole city.

    Ash not picking up on Charles being the Mighty Accelguard was kind of funny. He's still completely clueless about obvious stuff. The transformation sequence for Charles was actually pretty cool. Team Vanllite was weird and their plan was so ridiculous. That was obviously the point, but it was more strange than funny. Though, it does make me wonder how much the writers miss writing the comedy relief Team Rocket. Iris' fear of Ice types appeared again. I realize that it's used for comedy relief, especially when she's afraid of Pokemon that look like snow cones, but whenever it does come up now, I just think of how inconsistent it is. It was kind of cool to see the Mighty Accelguard defeat the villain for once.

    Overall, it was a fun and relatively decent episode. I hope that next week's episode is more interesting and fun to watch though.

    With all the new characters, the high level of cheese, *easily* the most I've enjoy pokemon in a while.
