I have no problems stating that best Kanto/OI team > best Kalos team = best Hoenn team, so it's clearly not an XY bias. At best you could claim I have a GPICSS bias (even though I can justify any of the claims I make about 1 of them), even though it's you who circlejerks the HL. Until the TOP 32 nothing about the HL should be particularly stressful (3 double battles means trainers with only 6 Pokémon only need each Pokémon to battle once). Johto had 6 vs 6 battles from the TOP 16 which would only be 1 fewer than the HL Also more entrants does not equate to a higher aggregate quality of trainer. If anything, the SL easily had the highest aggregate quality of trainer even though it has the lowest entrance rate tied with the KL. This "Grueling", "Deep Field" nonsense you keep spouting has no concrete basis whatsoever. So I'll say it again, HL Grovyle, Corphish and Torkoal aren't doing jack against AG.This is precisely the overrating/circlejerk I'm talking about.
