    Yes, it would be awesome. Rematches are usually saved for the third version, and well, the sequels take the place of the "third version" for this Generation, so it's fair enough.

    I think Shauntal is the only one of the Elite Four I'd really like to return.

    Shauntal is the only one I want to go, honestly. Marshall was a great challenge, Grimsley is just plain awesome, and Caitlin doesn't seem likely to go since they brought her to Unova from Sinnoh, and Masuda said that one thing about Darach possibly being closer to Caitlin than she realizes (meaning he's in Unova). If Grimsley isn't Darach, I almost expect Darach to appear, maybe as an Elite Four member.

    Or... as Achroma.

    Well, I think Grimsley could be characterized more. He didn't really give us an idea of himself last games. All I got was that he's a rich, silent man who likes risks...

    I believe he said he liked playing games that involve risks.

    More precisely, he's from a distinguished family that fell into ruin, and that's why he developed the habit of gambling (they even gave his clothes the colors of a roulette).

    Same here. Besides her, the only one I like a bit is Marshal.

    Why? Phoebe is awesome.

    Nintendo Dream, if I'm not mistaken. Many designs and concepts of Gym Leaders and Elite members were explained.

    Like Agatha, Pheobe trained, like only Banette and Dusclops. There's nothing wrong with that, especially when there's only 3 Ghost type families, but I still find it repetitive. Not to mention both Agatha and Phoebe have no backstory...

    Well, we know that Agatha is a battle-fanatic and badass old lady who used to be Oak's rival when they were young and became really upset when he gave up on the Trainer life to become a researcher (kinda like what many of us feel about May or Brendan in RSE haha). I really like Agatha a lot.

    I like Phoebe too, she has a very unique design.

    Ok, I agree that Pokémon-wise Phoebe and Agatha are very disappointing.

    Design-wise they and Shauntal are my favorite Ghost trainers.

    If I remember correctly I think Phoebe's grandmother or something resides on Mt.Pyre, or that she trains there or something...

    And yes I am another one of those hoping for the Elite Members to be involved in the storyline this time...

    I still can't figure out what the hell they were doing when all the chaos happened at the league in BW1...

    Chilling in their fancy rooms thinking "What's all that noise outside? I hope not a trainer, I only have four pokemon right now." lol

    But that did never make sense. They were literally RIGHT THERE, GLs came across the region to get there and help defend. Caitlin was probably sleeping in her giant bed though.

    Well maybe they didnt actually know what was going on when it was happening or that it was just a small matter that they thought and wouldnt go anywhere

    A giant castle was rising out of the ground right behind them. Please explain to me how that's a small matter?

    They're too good for defending Unova. Probably like "What's tnat sound? Oh well, I'm too good. Let me play with my four semi-strong Pokemon"

    I don't expect much Elite 4 involvement tbh..
    I can see Alder playing a much bigger role in these games though :]

    Especially since he jumps off a cliff to ask us a favor, which if I'm remember correctly was to "walk in step with your Pokemon"

    If they were aware of who N was (and I think they should be, they weren't living inside a bubble or something - they should at least be able to recognize the legendary dragon of their own region), they should have been exceptionally alert about his challenge, even more so when he managed to beat all of them and proceed to challenge Alder. They knew he was up to no good and they should be ready to take action if the slightest thing felt wrong (and I hardly believe they didn't hear a gigantic castle rising from the ground right behind the League building).

    You can handwave most of them away.
    Caitlin! Is psychic, knew we'd take care of it.
    Shauntal! Engrossed in novel, also her area has constant lightning.
    Grimsley! Does not even remotely care and prefers to *glasses* take his chances
    Marshal! ......I don't know

    OR, since the platform was still lowered they couldn't get there.
    OR, figured the champ could handle it
    OR....something. Really we probably weren't supposed to think too hard about it and the developers just wanted the leaders to lead the charge.

    It all just seems weird. The Elite 4 were right there, GLs were across the region, who knows?
