Last I checked, at the PWT winning a tournament, not counting World Leaders and Champions, gives up to 3 BP. So to get even a damn Power Item, you need to win 6 or more of them. And don't get me started on TMs - even the really crappy ones cost 6 BP, so 2 tournaments. Not to mention Rare Candies and Focus Sashes both cost 24. Admittedly some semi-useful items only cost 3, but I am pretty sure they're found in other locations.
Personally I think every single thing you can buy in the PWT/Battle Frontier/etc. is way overpriced, except for the Vitamins. It wouldn't bother me so much if we got even, say, up to 6 BP. I know Champions can give you as much as 12, but then you need to win at least 15 tournaments (5 regional leader tours once plus World Leaders 10 times) before you even get the chance. And let's not forget the hax in the PWT is turned up to eleven, so it's not as easy as it may seem.
So what do you think? Is BP too hard to get, or is it fine the way it is?
