    Default Steven vs. Wallace

    Jumping on the Envoy bandwagon, with a twist. These guys aren't Pokemon but that doesn't mean they can't be compared like them. They were both Hoenn Champions within the same generation. Even other canons like Pokemon Special and possibly the anime (not sure if Steven was ever called Champion there), they were both canonically the champions of Hoenn. So I ask you...

    Who do you like better?
    Who had the better team?
    How do you feel about the shift in Emerald?

    People now? Alright...

    I prefer Steven. By far. Not because I'm especially attatched to him (Cynthia and Blue are the most epic Champions ever), but because I find that giving Wallace a promotion was completely unecessary.

    I also never liked Wallace's design.

    While Steven's personality is very bland, like most of the Hoenn characters, I do find that he's the better champion.

    Steven. His personality fits a Champion better than Wallace.

    Hmm...

    I like Wallace's design more, but I liked battling Steven more.

    I dunno they're both good looking, Lance is the only champ with the cape IMO but Wallace was tough...but I did like Steven because you saw him more than Wallace so yeah I prefer him (can see himand in-game May shipped together too)

    Steven was pretty great, and I was glad to see him cameo in Pt. and HGSS. I hope he comes back in Gen V. Dude rocks...probably my favorite champion design wise, and his team rocked too.

    Also, not in the poll, but Juan >>> Wallace also.

    Like better: Steven

    Better team: Steven (Wallace has the same type Pokemon as Juan)

    Thoughts on the Emerald shift: Steven's Pokemon getting stronger in there may prove that he may become the Champion again.

    Steven please. At least his Team wasn't 100% Steel and wasn't like Lance's either in that it was horribly crippled by one/two Types. The use of Steel Pokémon that had amazing coverage in Type resistance and immunity, as well as two Rock Pokémon to counter the more common weakness, and Claydol to deal with Fighting and Ground users (Which were damn well covered despite the Team's overall theme, and only one of his Pokémon was actually weak to both) made it a very well-balanced Team that, though with a clear contained theme, was almost as good as Gary's Blue's and Cynthia's mixed Teams.

    Wallace didn't have such luck. Though it helps he had the most diverse Type of all, and went out of his way to use many of the most helpful Combinations all over his Team... he was still an all-Water user. Though it's nowhere near as bad as Lance's (But too close. Four Pokémon are weak to Electric, Four to Grass, and the only real wild card is Ludicolo, who can take both of them), it was still boring and monotonous. After Steven, he was a big letdown. As characters, I prefer Steven as well. Never really liked the flamboyant type, though it isn't that bad.

    So yeah. Alongside this, we didn't even get the chance to rebattle Steven as much as we wanted in Emerald. One of the few things where Ruby/Sapphire beat it.

    "I'm sure that we and Pokémon have helped each other and enriched the world since ancient times. These memories have been engraved in each Pokémon's heart! So, I want Pokémon and people to get closer and closer! As the Champion, I want to tell that to everybody!"

    I think having two champions was s good move on the writers part because of how we don't have an established champion for Kanto that isn't the player character (Red/Blue)

    BRING BACK DEXTER!!!!

    Am I the only person who likes Wallace more?

    I like Wallace more because him being the Champion came as real surprise to me. The moment I met Steven the second time, I guessed he probably was the champion. My friend hadn't played RS before and even he thought Steven would be the champ in emerald because you ran into him so many times but he was pleasantly surprised when Wallace turned out to be the champ. Steven had no real personality as such. Wallace had a personality. He was all for graceful Pokemon. Wallace's mentor making a come back and Wallace ascending to the level of Champion was interesting. I prefer having Steven as an endgame boss rather than ordinary champion. Wallace's and Steven's expanded roles were great even though the dialouge in the Cave of Origin was poorly written.
