    Trainers in post-game areas may have higher levels but most of them would never get through the E4. The Elite Four have strong Pokémon and tactics while the trainers are the same mooks you've seen before, just with higher levels. It's the same deal with the early Gym Leaders. They far weaker than the E4 but when you get to them they are still a challenge. RPG levelling systems don't make perfect sense.

    As has been mentioned, the E4 do have a stronger team on remathes anyway. And the Battle Frontier doesn't count since it is a different brand of high-level challenge.

    The Elite Four are a big end-game challenge to prove the strength of your team. If you did retire them, how would you end the game?

    They shouldn't take them away, the post-game trainers like many have said went through the Pokemon League, and won. They are there to test your skills as a trainer, the post-game trainers are to train against so you could take on a stronger elite four. Why else would you be collecting badges? The badges would be redundant, and the length/playability of the games wouldn't be as good as they are.

    Hellz NO. THe E4 is, in my opinion, the best place to train. Especially if you want to train a weak pokemon. I went into the E4 with a level 20-ish Joltik on White. I gave it a lucky egg, always sent it out 1st, and came out with a level 40-ish Galvantula. You can also give a high level pokemon an amulet coin, a weak pokemon an exp. share, you can do work right there.
    I don't always resist, but when I do, it's with The Resistance. Stay resistant, my friends.

    This sums it up. Not only is it an important end to the game, but its still the best place to train weak pokemon.

    Exactly!
    When they first appear.
    Any other time you battle them after that, they're not so "elite" any more, are they? Well, at least to you, they aren't.

    The E4 should never be taken out of Pokemon games. Never ever! They make a really good training area afterwards.

    Though mostly a case of them telling and not showing, its been stated that the Elite 4 and Frontier Brains tend to be on-par with each other.

    A more visible example is Caitlin, though not exactly a Frontier Brain, she's mentioned that she was never once able to beat Cynthia.

    It's called gameplay and story segregation (if you have the time look it up on tvtropes) They wanted for most players to beat the E4 but also left something for the good trainers.
