And all I can say about these games is that they're awesome! ^^
I also like some of the 'small' changes they made to the voices of the older generation Pokemon. They even made Pikachu say "Pika!".
And Super-Training is VERY helpful.
Here's my current progress in the games:
Fennekin "Ahri" Lv. 12
Fletchling "Yukiko" Lv. 9
Pikachu "Ivan" Lv. 9
