    Haha, I think its kind of funny that Iris is Champion now, that might be the biggest surprise of the whole game yet.

    The strange thing is, I actually predicted it yesterday through simple deduction:

    Drayden was confirmed as being a gym leader.
    Champion always uses Psuedo Legendary
    Hydreigon is Gen V Psuedo Legendary, and also a Dragon
    Only one other Dragon user

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    That's a nice surprise, Iris is champ! Her hair does look like a dragon's...sort of. Her outfit is adorable. <3

    A neat backstory would be that Drayden was chosen to be champ, but he turned it down and recommended Iris. Iris kicked butt, and now is top champ.

    No, it's because Iris is like 1000 times more better than any previous Champion, and thus she must show her superiority by wearing that crown. I mean, it clearly screams ''I'm better than you.''
    I humbly disagree. I find Alder to be my personal favorite Champion (Shocking, I know), and I liked his casual wanderer look, as it didn't seem to give him a superiority complex. You are entitled to your opinion though, and that's what makes the world mix so well.
    Why, of course you do, I could tell by your banner. But don't get me wrong, I was only joking, and it's not like my prefernce over Iris than any other champion is a fact, I just thought you understood that it was a joke.

    My apologies, text doesn't really translate things like that well. No hard feelings.

    What I really wonder is if the game gives any indication of it. All previous games, you met the Champion before fighting them, and while Iris was in BW1, not everyone who buts this is going to have played BW1.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    Good news: Iris finally did something with that Zoroark-esque hairstyle of hers.
    Bad news: Iris seems to be underdeveloped in some places, if you know what I mean.

    On a more serious note, I don't know if I should like Iris's team. After what had happened with Cynthia and Alder, I expected Iris to have a little bit more of a balanced team. Three of her pokemon are Dragons, which gives them the conventional Ice and Dragon weaknesses. Three of her pokemon (Lapras, Hydreigon, and Aggron) are also weak against Fighting-type attacks. Another two pokemon are weak against Electric as well. Iris may be the Champion, but she is a far cry from being a challenging trainer outside her Haxorus and Hydreigon.

    Well Iris was never really a gym leader. In white, Drayden tells her "Iris, you go be (player)'s opponent" So it makes sense that Drayden would stay at the gym, also being the 7th gym dosen't really make him weaker, Haxorus and Druddigon are the same levels

    That's nothing really new though. Blue's team in R/B was a trainwreck due to terrible movesets, Lance is extremely weak to Ice and Electricity, Most of Steven's team can be destroyed by Blaziken, Wallace's by Sceptile, Cynthia has a large Ice weakness, and Alder has a large Fire weakness as well. Making a true balanced team with no holes is not an easy thing to do.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    Interesting how Iris is Champion, though I kinda would have liked to have seen Marshal as Champion instead.

    Also does anyone know what happened with the Striaton Triplets? Someone mentioned Cilan being at a Cafe, but what became of Chili and Cress?

    It's ironic that Cheren is only the first gym leader in BW2, yet he defeated Iris (the current champion) two years earlier in the White timeline. I wonder how the previously power-obsessed trainer feels about holding back against beginners?

    Cheren never beat Alder. He did beat the Pokemon League, but due to the Team Plasma mess, he couldn't challenge Alder.
