Work on your sarcasm. She swept the tourney, and then her only pokemon curled up into a ball and stayed that way for about 6 years.......some experience there...
Yeah, Excadrill was shattered ... after losing to a Dragon Master with a beefy Hax. And that DOES show a great deal more experience than we have seen from Dawn seeing as she was doing this before either Dawn or Ash even had a Pokemon. And clearly given her knowledge of Dragon Types and Pokemon in general I think we can agree that she didn't stop doing stuff after Excadrill got all depressed.
It wasn't mentioned that Iris never lost~~~~~
Her and Drilbur had 99 wins in a row and 0 loses. That's 99 battles in a row that they did not lose until they faced ... a Dragon Master and his Hax.
Let's see, Excadrill curled up into a ball, Dragonite acts like a wild pokemon, Emolga was....Emolga. Thanks for proving my point. You saved me the trouble.
Her Pokemon have strange personality quarts but part of her journey is learning how to connect with their hearts ... which is why they give her such Pokemon. And that's why they always end up obeying her. There's nothing wrong with her Pokemon having problems that she has to work on through heart-connecting. You're trying to spin that into a negative ... I was making the point that she gets them to obey her. That's kinda one of her "things" ... I actually like seeing her Pokemon for this reason.
Also, these are personality quarts within the Pokemon. I REALLY don't think any of these Pokemon would have acted differently had another Main Character captured them.
