None of these were even issues in the games, though. Clemont isn't really into building robots but rather devices, Alola actually has more of a battling scene rather than how dull it was in the anime about it (only one or two trainers bothered to do all the trials, and just compare Hala's battle...
Yeah. It's also incredible that no one reported that all the freaking regional (and a league) champions were participating in the first place. How does one even not point it out before the final battles?
Nope, the lineup is kind of boring and predictable (and it doesn't help some of these Champions were never shown battling in the PWC before). The anime basically can't repeat the same stunt ever again for anything, not even that alluded Champions League (if it was real).
Doesn't help that half...
That sounds like something that would happen after the PWC is over, not before. It makes the PWC feel pointless.
Paul: There are other strong trainers out there, idiot. The PWC isn't everything.
