    Sun and Moon's Ash vs Misty and Brock vs Kiawae battle was amazing.

    BW's tournament arcs were pretty cool, Snivy and Krookodile were cool, and Cilan was pretty funny. The episodes with Meowth joining Ash were also fun, even though they never really went anywhere.

    I'd also say it had a lot of interesting ideas, but like... anyone can have good ideas, so bleh.

    Best Wishes had some badass gym leaders, I liked Iris and Cilan, Bianca was awesome, and I enjoyed a lot of the new Pokémon like the starters, Roggenrola, and Krookodile.

    Best Wishes did have quite a few good Gym battles especially during the second half of the region, although the battle at the Raimon Gym still haunts me somewhat since it totally ruined the momentum that Satoshi had built up in the first three Gyms of the saga. His strategy against Kamitsure was just awfully embarrassing.

    I liked them all except Skyla since she was lazy and didn't want to battle when Ash and friends first met her. Her philosophy about not needing to battle if she thought that she had a clear advantage just so she could have more free time to fly her plane was messed up.

    BW gym leaders basically have no officials judging them. There's no justice for what they do and they can brush a trainer off for petty reasons just so they don't battle (Clyde being the most insulting, because he practically demanded Ash to go get the equivalent of Pokemon weed...and he's an immigrant, unlike his better portrayal in the games).

    ...Which is disturbing, because it's no different than unlawful justice in the US, and that region was based on the US. I sometimes think the writers wrote Unova sooo badly with intentions to shame the US that there were so many stupid/stuck up/zany trainers all over the place (basically nearly all the trainers/rivals Ash met except for Virgil). Even the Champion of the region was written as a guy who is so embarrassing to look at times.

    The reasons why Ash acted so stupidly is because he started hanging out with Americans. On a serious note I think your theory maybe true looking back it's weird that Trip was so again't Ash being from a different place/country. Pokemon was really throwing subliminal messages in BW.

    I don’t really blame you, because her attitude was problematic. I think that apart from LT Surge, Skyla was the only gym leader that Ash had a legitimate reason to be angry with.

    And she didn't even launch him out of cannons like game!Skyla.

    As much as I love the Don George tournaments (Bianca beating Trip and Throh vs Sawk are highlights of BW as a whole), the Unova League shows why maybe they're not so great an idea. The writers only have so much creativity, and they used a lot of it writing the tournaments, which caused the League to suffer massively as a result.
