So why did people have a problem with Iris being champion?

If you look at all of the gym leaders, E4 members and frontier Brains you can see that we have a diverse set of characters. So why couldn't people accept her? Didn't Drayden say she was a prodigy in B/W?

Generally? Because she's "too young", "not badass enough", "didn't have a hardcore epic theme", and/or "i hate the anime version of her".

I prefer new characters over familiar faces as champions.

What's why I found Lance (Johto), Wallace, and Iris lame as hell.

I never had a problem with it. I thought it was cute.

I kinda liked seeing familiar characters achieve things like that. Though Lance and Bruno were kind of lame because there are 7 versions in which they appear in Indigo Plateau, and a lot of people probably played around 4 of them.

I liked Iris as the champion at any rate, more so because I played Black and Black 2, so I was fighting her for the first time.

To be honest, I don't give 2 f***s who the champ is.
Unless it's cynthia, that'd be awesome.

Because there was a 0% chance of it happening. So she obviously cheated.

Too young? - The age of a trainer makes absolutely no difference. Adult champions get beaten by 10 year olds all the time.

Not badass enough? - By far the best looking champion to date. Her team is on par with the other champions.

"didn't have a hardcore epic theme? Well, I kind of agree, the theme isn't that great compared to some of the other champ's, but it's not that bad either.

She's no worse then misty, may or dawn -_-''
