The reality of the BW rivals

The BW rivals were a major talking point among the fandom. Each of them were all unique in their own ways and I personally don't dislike them but I have to admit they were all pretty bad as rivals. Trip barely cared, Bianca had no idea what she was doing, Stephan cared more then Ash did, Burgundy is just a punching bag and Georgia spent more time bickering with Iris then she did building a rivalry with her. None of them were truly bad but the circumstances each of them were in was what truly killed most of their characters. It's worse for characters like Trip, Georgia and Burgundy who were the main rival trio and the counterparts to the main character and all of them lost in the first rounds of their final tournaments. With Bianca and Stephan they were stagnant and tbh Ash not only beat them pretty easily but he somehow found a way to care less for them then he cared for Trip who he didn't really care much for either. None of the 5 rivals were good in development and they were glad to at least have gotten a few appearances. Regardless at who was a main rival, friend rival or just a casual rival all of them would have been poorly handled and poorly written no matter how many fans try to make it seem like the BW rivals they liked would have done better had they replaced any of the other BW rivals in their roles. Btw I don't dislike any of the 5 BW rivals so I'm just giving my neutral opinion.
