That's a new twist. I know in the game I battled Team Galactic and had to help my enemy (Paul), but then in the TV series version, you got Huntress J teaming up with Galactic?! Man, if they make the 3rd version of Diamond and Pearl, they need to consider drawing in Huntress J. I'm starting to not like her and that's a good thing.
And like the game format, Paul has to team with Ash, and then Dawn? They sure make Pokemon battles feel like wrestling at times.
