Yeah that's what I heard too! And they gave him transparent lenses (junketsu-paradox.tumblr.com/im… he looks better with his whole face showing. I'm fangirling now! Even he reminds me of Chili! (Same eye shape). I think he will cook for Ash and Serena. Of course he will, cooking is a very important skill, especially since he's caring for his little sister (possibly the only reason why she's with him) Everybody gets hungry!
Cool a ninja episode! 24.media.tumblr.com/a2c276e3e2… it reminds me of the episode where Brock catches a Bonsley (everybody is a ninja). I wonder what's making Clemont so upset? He looks like he's going paranoid about something, yes Cilan had his outbursts maybe Clemont's having an outburst here. Ash will get a ninja rival maybe and Clemont probably doesn't like to see Chespin out of shape (well he's a non athletic nerd and he manages to stay thin, maybe Nurse Joy put Chespin on the diet or Clemont).
I don't think she'll cook because usually the big brother figure (what I call Brock and Cilan) cooks for them. I heard about Viola... so she might be the cook (that's if she's not a rival-like character, coming and going).
