    Agree with you about alain, just wish he would have been set up as a rival from the start he could be better than paul.

    Perhaps though I’m not sure how it would work if Alain met Ash early on since Ash would be too weak at that point for Alain to care about him (maybe they could’ve had a scene of Alain battling Gurkin for ME energy when Ash came to Shalour and Ash ends up getting really impressed by his strength).

    Regardless except for alan who came in late sawyer and tierno were very poorly handled. Sawyer became very strong in very little time.

    At least the rivalry was kind of foreshadowed all the way back in the first ME Act and in Act 4 Alain was able to do something Ash never could (beat an E4) which for long term fans at least would establish Alain as the guy against whom Ash has something to prove.

    He should have won against alain in KL semifinal and then lost to tobias like OP trainer in the finals.

    Yeah I liked Sawyer’s initial characterization but his power spike from XYZ 13 to XYZ 26 was too absurd (unless Steven was already mentoring him by then). How do you think Tierno compares to Barry (both fit the “hyper active beta rival” mold and jobbed at the league to make a primary rival look better)?

    The thing is everyone makes sawyer a prodigy but he wasn't one, no prodigy is going to make a basic mistake of using a dragon type against valerie's fairy type knowing it would not affect them. Tierno was more of a dancer whereas barry was an actual trainer who used strategy.
    Also alain could be introduced earlier just like gladion was introduced earlier despite being far superior to ash.

    I mean ideally I’d just rather Ash won the league though it would’ve been hilarious if some guy with say a Mega Mewtwo X was Ash’s final opponent and just completely stomped him.

    Well as far as I’m concerned Tierno > Barry in terms of raw trainer skill. First off suing Spikes doesn’t automatically make you a good trainer. Barry’s main problem was that he kept on overestimating the capabilities of his own Pokémon (especially speed) while underestimating those of Paul’s.

    It should’ve been obvious to him that there was no way Empoleon was gonna beat Electivire in speed, so he should’ve focused on enduring and counter-attacking rather than fruitlessesly having Empoleon dodge all the time which just wasted stamina.

    Endurance against electivire wouldn't work since electivire was far superior to empoleon in addition to having type advantage.Barry didn't have any choice he was going to lose to him anyways, i think empoleon could have taken out both magmortar and ursaring since both of them were badly damaged.

    Tierno on the other hand used a legit rain team. The rain augmented Ludicolo’s speed and water attacks not to mention that Tierno seemingly trained Ludicolo to be able to effectively absorb particles of light even in rainy weather. Setting up RD for a 100% accuracy Thunder was a great play that pressured Sawyer into using ME when Sawyer would’ve much rather left that as a surprise for Ash.

    Sure Electivire was going to win regardless, but had Barry prioritized counter-attacking over fruitless dodging, I don’t think it would’ve been as bad of a stomp as it ended up being.
