Pokemon X/Y should have an unbeatable foe early in the game.

Many games have done this over the years; introduce a new incredibly strong character early in the game for you fight. You're too weak for him and he takes the win. This gives you encouragement to get stronger in order to beat him in your next confrontation.

Some Pokemon games tried to do with e.g Norman, Aqua/Magma Leader and Fantina(I think). But it wasn't the same, as you never even got to battle them.

So what do you guys think, should there be an unbeatable foe early in the game for you to battle?

I wouldn't mind this.

Yes; I want this to happen; you (much) later get to have a rematch, like levels 90+.

I'd appreciate more opinions on the subject.
Shameless bumping, but what do you guys care.

Maybe in a darker storyline. That said, I very much like the idea.

But....couldn't you just grind if you had a TON of patience?

How would this add to the story or improve the experience?

Like a non-sucky Blue/Gary? I like that.

I honestly don't see how could this be a good idea at all. An automatic loss is hardly worth hoping for.
