Wow, Dawn's return in BW2 feels really pointless

I guess people weren't kidding when they said the only reason Dawn is staying for multiple episodes is just because of Piplup.
So they hype up Dawn on the BW2 poster, yet she's been rather low-key upon her return. While she is staying for multiple episodes, she's pretty much not the "star" of any of these eps besides the first one she came back for. While the Iris/Dawn interaction in the Onix episode was nice, the rest of the eps just have her playing second fiddle to Cilan or Iris.
In the tournament she loses in the second episode, and her only win is a 5 second battle against a COTD. Its almost as if including Dawn in the Junior tournament in the first place seems kinda pointless.
If she just leaves after the Junior tournament, what about her return felt significant or important? It feels like she came back for fillers and to have an early loss in a pointless tournament. We don't get any updates on her Contest journey, her rivals aren't mentioned at all, she gets no new pokemon or evolutions...she even has the same exact clothes.
If I were a major Dawn fan I'd almost prefer her not to come back at all if she was just going to be swept under a rug like this. I guess its true what they say, after the writers are done promoting you in one series you get thrown out along with the rest of the older characters and swept under a rug for the current main cast.
