    Default Elite Four, my ass!!

    In each of the Pokémon games, your primary objective of this game is to become the champion by defeating the Elite Four. This, for the most part, has remained unchanged in the history of Pokémon. But quite frankly, after this is completed, chances are that you'll go somewhere else where there actually are trainers that have a team that'll make the so-called "Elite Four" wet themselves. This holds especially true to all the Battle Frontier Brains that we've seen in Emerald, Platinum, & HG/SS. That, & the fact that there are some people that can just breeze through these people like they're $%&#ing NUBs.

    So, tell me this: Is the concept of having the Elite Four something that should be retired from future generations?

    I think people just need to understand what game-play and story segregation is.

    The idea is that the post game trainers have went through the Pokemon League as well.

    Nope as most trainer with higher level pokemon would of more then likely beat the E-4 and the E-4 is a damn good training spot that I dont want them to ever take away.

    Yes, there are stronger trainers in other places.

    But should they take away the E4? No. They're a great training spot, and the ultimate goal in the main story arc.

    I don't think they should take them away, even if they are not all that strong in HGSS. They're good for training, and the main object of your quest in most Pokemon games.

    They should definitely stay, but they should also get progressively stronger (like they did in FrLg and HgSs, only multple times in stead of once).

    I like the elite 4 due to the epic music that plays when you battle or win.

    IF i need to train something, I go to the elite four. Besides, if you beat them 10 times, you end up with like $200,000 or something like that! Money and power!

    Elite Four=ultimate training machine.

    Take a few level 100s you may have, give one an amulet coin, give a very qeak Pokemon an EXP. share. And go to work.

    And who really has the patience to train their Pokemon into the sixties before challenging the E4 the first time? Crazies.

    The Elite Four should stay. They have been an essential part of the series and are a good way to battle powerful pokemon for experience, something that cannot be done with the Battle Frontier. Although Arc Blader is right in that they should improve the team more often, maybe like three or four levels after every ten battles or something like that.

    The Elite 4 should definitely stay. Pokemon without the 4 wouldn't be Pokemon. It would be like if they stopped using fire, water and grass elements for the starter pokemon. I do think that they should level up the Elite 4 after every 3 or 5 battles. The Elite 4's the best way to level up your pokemon.

    I think the Elite Four is a great part of the storyline, your final challenges before you meet the champion and a nice training spot afterwards. The later games have been doing a nice job with it, especially Platinum (where it is required for your rival to level up in Survival Area in post-game) and Black and White (you can challenge them in any order, and after the main storyline you finally get to challenge Adeku/Alder).

    So, my opinion is that it should be kept. With the same mechanics as B/W, though; it helps the task be a lot less linear and you train your Pokemon in the oder you want or need.
