Bah, for me there was only one thing that truly disappointed me about the Unova League, that's Katherine not interacting with the group.
Everything else was fine to me.
And the best part is Lucario didn't get 'dragged through the dirt' by Eevee like certain people were hoping.
I have to say, liked the unpredictability this League provided. Only Virgil winning the entire thing was predictable. Surprises are cool, IMO.
Just because some character isn't high on the popularity list, it does not mean everybody doesn't like them.
To anyone who does it: stop stating this like it's a fact. I know lots of people who like unpopular characters.
