I think their original intent was to have Iris be revealed as the gym leader but then B2W2 came out and they changed the whole thing.

I expected Iris to finally defeat Drayden,so I was disappointed to see her lose.However,I liked seeing more of her backstory,especially Iris failing to make any friends in Opelucid Academy.Haxorus' moveset was generic and boring,but at least it did put up a good fight against Excadrill.

So Ash's group reached Opelucid city and we saw how Iris had studied there after leaving her village. Iris vs Drayden was cool cuz of how Excadrill managed to tie with Haxorus. Too bad Iris still lost however.

In my mind, I had imagined that Souryuu City would resemble one of its in-game layouts with either ancient or futuristic buildings. However, it looked like any standard anime town. Shaga was sublime however, as was Iris's flashback. I had a feeling that Iris would lose to Shaga, but their match was still good.

Idk why Dragonite vs. Druddigon was so controversial. Like, Drayden was more experienced. And there is no such thing as stats and levels in the anime: Druddigon was just stronger than Dragonite naturally by experience and training. :/
