Please, if this thread cause complaints, I didn't make more. This is a thread about the known effects of Iris' Champion status in the anime. If that should be in another thread, move on.
Well, if you already know Iris has increased too much her screentime since Season 2 started and since she's revealed Champion in the games. The status of Champion in the games caused that Iris increased her popularity quickly in the Pokemon fandom (in general). Although in the anime Iris won't be Champion (implies a time-skip) we're sure that this game title has affected her anime counterparts in various ways.
-Capturing pseudo-legendary pokemon (Is Dragonite because Dragonite is marketable)
-The crush that Iris has for Cynthia. (She can't for Alder because he appeared before in BW)
-And that she went from a sidekick in Season 1 to a May-like sidekick in Season 2.
On the other hand, the amount of Cilan screentime appears to have decreased notably since Season 2, although the change isn't as extreme as Iris. That Cilan isn't a Gym Leader in BW2 could hurt Cilan's character in a way.
The questions, do you agree with the idea.
Note: if you wonder about the character screentime and considering the rest of the League, Ash's episodes.
