Dento knows the basics of battling too, he must have trained hard and studied intensely to become a A-Rank Sommelier and Gym Leader your point?Still, Iris was shown to be knowledgeable of battles and extremely skilled at it with Shaga implying she would have needed to study intensely battling to reach that level of skill, which of course, she didn't need to do, cause she was a friend of all the woodland creatures. already knows the ins and outs of battles, even managing to win a local tournament over people who looked like they had been training longer than she has. The image that the episode sent was that of Iris as a prodigy, as an already very capable, very knowledgeable trainer that really has no real area where she needs to improve herself to reach her goal of becoming a Dragon Master. Right now, she's just waiting for Kibago to reach her level of skills and power more than growing side by side with it. BW030 showed us that if Iris had a grown Dragon Pokémon, she would be more than capable of being a threat against anybody, on top of being already able to communicate, sense and calm dragons.
How the heck did the people at the tournament that one person she battled at the tournament look like he trained harder then Iris?
You could say the same thing about Dento already knowing how to communicate, battle, and being knowledgable.
Every trainer knows that, that's basic.She already knows how to take a pokémon from weak to very strong,
Didn't Langley point out her not having enough Dragons one flaw I can remember by heart. What about Cabernet? Dento didn't get any flaws pointed out by her, he was the doing the pointing, as if Cabernet is the main character.Langley who challenges Iris's character, Iris's methods in no way, shape or form. If anything, the writers are portraying Langley as overly bitchy and mean to make Iris look good in comparaison as opposed to use Langley to point out flaws in Iris and force her to challenge herself.
.No but we know how things went in the past, Iris and Kibago were confronted with an Ice type pokémon and both shrugged it off in 2 seconds. Neither was shown to be impeded in their ability to battle, ergo, not a flaw, not an obstacle
I didn't know you could see into the future or past. Because, both were scared to battle. The minute things looked bad Iris got less confident. Tsunbear is a Ice-Type a trained Ice-Type not a wild Pokemon.
Guess you could say the same thing for Iris and Satoshi getting mad over Dento betting his Pokemon right?As a joke, as if it was funny, which means that it's not treated as a flaw by the writers.
Honestly if you think Iris is a boring and uninteresting character. What's the point of having these debates? You obviously aren't gonna change your mind because Iris will always be a bad character to you. It's no secret you loved Hikari back in Shin'ou. If you don't like her, and you have your heart set on not liking her "sucky, uninteresting, bitchy, boring character" is there any real point to discussing this anymore?Ultimately, that's the problem with Iris. She's not vulnerable, not relatable, not compelling and therefore, totally uninteresting. With Satoshi's bland reserves, she's easily the low point of Best Wishes.
Dento may be a funny guy, but he's still flawless. Takeshi was no way in heck flawless compared to Dento, even when he was comedic.
