Things I like:
-The background music
-Shinji is pretty awesome. Satoshi FINALLY has a rival again!
Things I don't like:
-Takeshi. Guh. He's already boring me.
-Team Rocket. :/ Just the same old thing.
-Hikari traveling with Satoshi & Takeshi.
-Hikari wanting to be a Coordinator.
About the last point- I'm not too upset about it, but I just really wanted to see a main female character winning badges. We've never had that in the Pokemon anime. I don't want it to be that the girls are all coordinators; it's building a stereotype, and makes it seem that Hikari is just taking Haruka's place in the group. And I don't want that, because I really like Hikari so far. That's also why I'd have much preferred the anime to focus only on her- adding Satoshi wasn't too bad, but Takeshi too? What purpose does he have now??
I guess my main gripe is that I want to see something NEW. Not the old overdone formula. The parts focusing on Hikari were great, and so were Satoshi's interactions with Shinji. And that's what I'm going to be looking forward to in this series.
