Agreed! We already know how one becomes a champion, everyone here already knew that lol, we have been told that. What we needed was not how she became a champion, we know how that works but rather how did she become strong enough to do those feats. Which is explained by her going on a journey to challenge strong dragon type trainers and encounter strong dragon Pokémon, training and becoming one with her own Pokémon as a result. That was more necessary then just reiterating you have to beat the elite 4 and alder to become championI mean I can see the criticism for not explaining how Iris became champion more in depth but she’s no longer a main companion and therefor unfortunately no more important than Steven. I still also stand by the fact we aren’t owed and Alder explanation because like I said it seems like an issue not exclusive to him ala Wallace.
