    I did have an idea. CBS for years has promoted the series Hawaii Five-0 (both original and remake) with the tagline "Be here, Aloha" at the end each promo for an upcoming episode.

    Since Alola is based on Hawaii, DXD should end each promo for a new episode with the tagline, "Be here, Alola" as a homage.

    While that sounds like a cute homage, I'm not sure why Disney XD would do that. I don't know how many people would pick up on the Hawaii Five-0 reference and I'm not sure if we'll get specific episode promos after the week of premieres is done. We might, but we might just have more general promos, which is still okay too. At least they have a few different Pokemon promos and air them more often than Cartoon Network ever did with their own promos.

    Maybe if Hawaii Five-0 were an ABC show, because Disney really seems to like crosspromoting shows and networks even when the demographics are different, like airing those sports/ESPN specials on Disney XD, I've seen Once Upon a Time promos on Disney Channel, and the fact that they're even airing Descendants 2 on Lifetime for some ungodly reason.

    But as it currently stands, I can't see it happening.

    ...other than the fact that Disney owns a stake in A&E Networks?

    Disney XD is promoting it. That's a good thing.

    I'm just surprised that they're already getting to the XYZ season. I didn't think that they were that close to finishing up the second seas of XY either.

    On July 1st SM016-021 will premiere. I wonder if they're planning to do that every episode marathon not too long after this.

    I didn't think that they'd have another event for the series this soon. Personally, I would have gone for another week long event instead of airing six episodes in one day, but it's more Pokemon, so that's always good in my book. I wouldn't be too surprised if they went on a bit of a break after it just because of airing so many episodes. That and the gap might be a bit too small after the event. Either way, at least they're doing more with the series than Cartoon Network did for the past few years.

    All of XYZ is already up on the app. That was quick.

    EDIT: Strangely, the final episode of Kalos Quest ISN'T up. That's kinda weird. Hopefully, they'll add it later.

    UPDATE: They finally added it.

    That is strange indeed. They did already air it and their streaming policy is usually to add the episodes as they air... hmmm....

    I thought that they'd have to go on a break after airing a bunch of episodes on one Saturday, but that's pretty great that they'll keep airing new episodes like usual afterwards too.

    Season 2 is finally up on the app.

    However, I don't recommend watching it just yet. There's a strange glitch on the page that causes it to disappear. Hopefully, they can get it sorted out soon.

    Bit surprised they added it before Season 5. I thought they'd try to complete Johto because of Pokemon GO.

    Unfortunately, they added it according to production order, meaning that episodes from "The Pokemon Water War" to "A Rivalry Revival" is nowhere to be seen.
