with best wishes, I'm very happy that they did make a change to team rocket, they dont appear in every episode and they still dont blast off (well not the old way lol), and the pokemon personalities are more interesting (oshawott), but its still gets really bad whenever ash has the spotlight on him. I remember being more excited for gym battles as they come up but with ash's regressing age syndrome he makes some embarassing mistake and it turns gym episodes into another daily dose of fail. I understand why they do that to ash because of appealing to the new generation of kids these days, but I think they would have been better off having a brand new character take the lead role instead of ash. they did it for his compainions (especially the female ones) why not do that for ash?

The few gripes I have are getting used to the new VA's, which I eventually did, and the new-er Pokemon designs, some of them look so, lazy. But its only so many animals you can use before you end up A) Re-using some or B) Making up some.
