after a "crushing" defeat two episodes ago and training hard with Alexa the gym leader's sister we see him come back to the battle again but truthfully this was more about the story outside the battle considering this is a second go at the battle for the FIRST BADGE so the battle is a formality. The story was well written in my opinion and Sarena is a great character and seems to already be quite well thought out and for the first time in well the first time ever no trope characters in the group with ash this is a great episode especially for an early beginning episode so it is GREAT!!!!
