The champion was a character who you really didn't have much/ any interaction with throughout the story?
Like, Gen 3 is probably the best example of this. You met Steven maybe once, same with Wallace in Emerald.
Compare that to gen 5. Alder was basically following you around all OVER THE PLACE. And same with Dianthia apparently.
So, which do you think worked better? Someone who was a bit more of a surprise character who you weren't expecting? Or someone who is with you on your whole journey, like Blue, Adler, or Dianthia? --- "Please, leave GameFAQs, you did not get a rose."

Blue Lance (lake of rage, team rocket, etc.), Cynthia, Alder, and Diantha basically stalk you. Steven you only meet once but you still meet him. Wallace was... Wallace

Blue was a good Rival because he was your 'friend' and rival. Stalking doesn't apply there much.
The others outside of Gen3? Follow follow follow. I'd like it to be someone you meet once; but you don't even consider them the Champ. Like surprise; Bianca is Unova's Champ in Black 2. --- The first thing a god masters is itself. Legion is a Badass. So is Mordin.

Honestly, I wish the Champion was a relative like your mother, father or even a grandparent, distant relative, etc. --- PSN ID: HakubiXFire // http://psnprofiles.com/HakubiXFire Currently Playing: FFXIV: Realm Reborn BETA, FFIX & Toro's Friend Network

I would like a Cynthia/Alder/Diantha style Champion at first, then when you rematch the Elite 4 the new Champion is randomly chosen between two or three applicants (the rival, the first champion and another recurring character) to show how they fight over the championship. Would also mix things up a little.
