Snowbelle City is genuinely one of the nicest-looking cities out there! That and Laverre City. I love the music too!
For once, Wulfric was a Gym Leader who didn't just wait for you in his Gym. I liked tracking him down in the Pokémon Villiage. The scene with the random Pokémon was cute and the music was fantastic.
Victory Road, however, was tough. BW2 spoiled us by putting a Pokémon Center at the entrance, but in XY we had to backtrack to Snowbelle or Santalune. And plowing through to the League wasn't an option either because of all the obstacles. I don't remember backtracking that much in previous games! SO many HM slaves were needed among those high level Pokémon!
Finally, when I had a long stetch of free time during the holiday week, I challenged the League. My team was at level 58 to start, but that was way too underleveled. Thankfully I bought lots of Hyper Potions and Revives!
Siebold started off as a struggle, but I beat him decently. Malva and Wikstrom were easier. Drasna was the toughest. I eked out a win over her.
And I knew Diantha was the Champion just by guessing! Her team was actually pretty easy for my level 58-62s until her Mega Gardevoir. For Gardevoir, I had to spam Max Revives and let my tanky Azumarill take her down.
...Then the plot was resolved fairly nicely, even though the main idea wasn't touched upon as much during the badge quest.
My fellow bronies, does that ceremony remind anyone of Twilight Sparkle's coronation? There was that big crowd, and the rivals were up on stage being honored as supporters just like the rest of the Mane 6 were up there as Twilight credited them with her ascension to princesshood. And then the Legion of France- I mean Hero of Kalos!
Az and his Floette's story was beautiful. I love how the animation had him shaking from the emotion! IMO the ending wasn't as mindblowing as BW, but it came close.
