So am I the only one who's slowly being drawn back into the show? I got curious in the last season when Charizard was coming back and watched a few episodes then but Iris and Cilan really struck me as annoying characters at the time. Yet now here in XY we have Clemont and Bonnie traveling with Ash and Serena soon to join up. Part of me likes the reverse of the May and Max situation, and I'm finding Bonnie somewhat adorable. After this weeks episode it seems like she's the Animes way of translating the Pokemon Amie feature since shes grooming and playing with the Pokemon. Really a great way to try and bring that to the show IMHO. Clemont takes the Brock role this time and seems like he's gonna have a running gag of having a machine hidden in hammer space for any occasion that will shortly break down and explode. Kind of a fun change compared to Cilans connoisseur comments. Serena seems like a mix between May and Dawn so far, but since we haven't seen all too much of her it's hard to see what she will be in the group dynamic yet.
Love to see TR in a good return to form. Bringing back Wobbuffet was great and James getting another tag along Pokemon (Inkay) again seems like it's his style. Love the motto montage they have this season as well. But I wouldn't mind them having the Black Uniforms still on occaision. What was the story with that last season anyways?
As far as Pokemon, it looks like Dedenne despite being caught by Clemont is going to be Bonnies main Pokemon. It's cute and the smaller sizes gives her a cute Pika Clone of her own.
Edit to finish my thoughts (had to go get the drive shoveled)- Froakie with Ash seems like we might end up getting repeat of the rebellious mon if his attitude from his initial episodes continues on in the show.. Bunnelby just sounds weird to me.
