    Best Champion ever? Well, she's on par with Shirona to me.
    Brilliant choice of Champion though.
    I like her team, especially my Gen 5 favourite Archeops ( besides Zuruzukin, of course ).

    Wallace seems younger than his "master" Juan and became Champion instead of him, so it isn't as far fatched that Iris just had more potential than Drayden. Iris being too young is also a moot point since Blue was probably even younger than Iris and Red's badassery *cough* is for some reason universally accepted while he is pretty young as well.
    Anime, Games, it doesn't matter, I guess people like to call her a Mary Sue everywhere. :p

    I never really saw Iris as a Mary Sue (Cynthia on the other hand...). Really, this is better than making N the Champion or something. I would have much preferred Drayden though, as he has much, much more experience, which is how one gets good at anything.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    Mouse over the name. It links to the character's bulbapedia page, the URL of which has the english name.

    No, that's only on Serebii forums. In fact, Archaic actually posted an announcement about this: Announcements - Current Event: Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 (scroll down to Archaic's).

    @RegiRuler;

    Yes, like Red, as an absentee Champion and therefore the previous Champion had to take an active role. That much is undesputable.

    The simplest outcome based on current evidence is Iris beat Alder.

    Unless you're saying Iris beat the current PC. Or the fact that old PC was a glory hog like Cheren, beat Alder even though they know they're stronger, and then also abdicated their position.

    But again, the simplest solution based on concrete fact is that Iris simply beat Alder. All else is fan speculation until more information is revealed.

    What does it say around Brycen's image? It shows the current PC, so I'm assuming he's still in the game, albeit not a gym leader.

    He's on the far right, in the middle.

    Or, hey may have retired, and Iris was asked to take his place, given her potential. That is the Alder fan in me talking, but it's still feasible.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    He's in Pokewood. He's not a gym leader.

    Instead of Swadloon, Burgh should've had a Larvesta, if not Heracross.
    Kanto's Route 23 doesn't exist in the Johto games!


    My ideas for a more game-faithful Best Wishes! series.

    Larvesta is a bit to powerful for the 3rd gym don't you think?

    I don't get why Iris got a Lapras !
    I mean , Lapras can't even move properly without Water ,
    Shouldn't a Milotic make a better choice then Lapras !

    The same reason Lance had one in Pokemon Stadium. I'm not complaining, it's more Fighting type fodder.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    Depending on its movepool, and the fact that Larvesta is actually more physical than its evolution, not really. Would had been better than what he got, thats for sure.

    @Gym Leader Iris; Change your username to Champion Iris :P Congratulations!

    Iris's design is growing on. I agree it would make more sense with Drayden, but I have theory. Drayden became the champ in the 2 year gap, but Iris trained under her new champion teacher and managed to dethrone him and surpass him.
