    I don't know about in B&W/B&W2 but it's frustrating/boring in Diamond and was a Nightmare in Emerald.

    Battle Subway's full of hax, so that's unreliable at best. Battling competitively works fine; except that to get the items you want to make your team, you need BP. And the PWT has its fair share of hax as well, on top of not receiving BP until you finish three matches (any turn in any one of which could screw you out of a win). I've never been able to get past the gym leaders tournaments, so if payouts are higher in the champions brackets, I wouldn't know.

    So yeah. I say the payouts are too low, in my experience.

    I personally love the PWT and play it nonstop when I get the chance, and accumulated more BP than I ever have in any other game, so I said that it's fine the way it is. (I also have a gazillion shards in my bag.) A winstreak of 3 is easier than a winstreak(s) of 7, so that's part of the reason.

    In B2/W2, I think that it's basically fine to get Battle Points. There's more options than just the Battle Subway and the PWT usually don't take nearly as long to complete as it does to get to the Subway Bosses. In B/W, it was harder because of how I'd lose in the Battle Subway more often. In the fourth generation games, it was kind of hard in some areas, but manageable. Emerald was definitely too difficult for me. If they have more options in future games like they did in B2/W2 to get more Battle Points, then I think it wouldn't be too hard or too easy to get enough to buy items.

    In Black 2 and White 2, it's very easy to get Battle Points. They have tons of ways to get them. With the Battle Subway, winning battles online you can get a good amount of BP before even getting 6 badges (if you're a good enough battler). But in games prior to B2W2, it's a big hassle. In HeartGold I only have 2 BP at the moment, in Platinum I only have 19 BP, and White only 6. I just don't got to the Battle Frontier and Battle Subway often cause they can get tedious and so I don't get too far. My highest streak so far in the Battle Frontier in Platinum is 14 at the Battle Tower and my streak Battle Subway in White is only 14 cause I don't battle at those places often.

    It's not HARD per se, if you have a good team, it's just too time-consuming. "OTL Too little payout for so much effort. I'd be happy if you at least earned 5-6 BP per sets of battle, 1-3 feels like an insult.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    I collect BP in Soul Silver and when I defeat 7 or so Trainers, I get 3 BP. Usually I win the battles, so it isn't that hard. It just takes a lot of time. My suggestion is that they give you 1 BP for each battle, and perhaps decrease the number of battles you have to fight in a row. Then, they can also make the battles harder. It's very annoying if you lose a battle and have to do it all over again, so, what I would really want is 1 difficult battle that gives you 1 BP, or that you can fight as much as you want till you lose and get BP for the battles you've won. It would be challenging, as is the point in video games, but still not annoying or boringly time-consuming.

    22 counts of piracy in high space
    18 counts of fraud
    37 counts of rape
    and 1 moving violation....how do you plead?
