Things in the Pokémon world which just don't make sense (by pokémon standards)

    Looker's police detective agency exists in a world with apparently no government

    Who says there's no government? Just because we don't see them, doesn't mean they don't exist. Nothing in Pokémon, whether it be games, anime, or otherwise, has ever implied that there's no government in the Pokémon World.

    And there is confirmed to be a government since there's a government building in Hau'oli city. It'd called the Hau'oli city hall.

    While that doesn't necessarily bother me since I'm sure there's a government system in the Pokemon World that we just don't see in the games, I've always found it frustrating that Handsome (Looker) doesn't really do that much to stop villains himself. He pretty much relies on us to get his assignments done: he's almost as inessential as Junsa (Jenny) from the Pokemon anime.

    It's not really a matter of Looker relying on anyone to do his job for him, so much as it the player just getting it done first. Really, the only reason the player character is so important to the plot of Pokémon games is that they're at the right place at the right time. If the player wasn't there to stumble in the way of the villains' plans, then Looker, and other police, would likely be doing much more.

    The police are extraordinarily incompetent if every time some no name kid has to stop the evil team because "muh protagonist status"

    Not necessarily. Aside from Team Skull and Team Yell, who don't really have any evil schemes to stop anyways, the evil teams are above the scope that ordinary police are trained to handle. It takes more than ordinary police to take down a powerful, wide-spread, cult-like organization with both plans and the means to destroy/takeover/change the world. Not being able to stop them doesn't make the police incompetent.
