The main story of the games is aimed at children, so they can't be too hard.

And then they decided to pull a troll move with Clay's Excadrill in BW2.

I was once modded for illegal activity because I made a topic asking for advice on nicknaming my Pokemon.

If there's one thing that GF do well, it's balancing their games.

It's because the devs are getting lazier with each installment. This gen, they even decreased the E4 teams from 5 to 4.

This was introduced in Gen 5. Not new, sadly.

...but at least Gen 5's E4 had somewhat threatening 'mons. The E4 in this game have some truly pitiful rosters.

The games came before the anime, and they've been doing doing this since Gen I.

I think GF just doesn't want the games to be too hard. The main story, anyway. Battle Frontiers are hax central but at least you don't have to beat those to progress the story. The devs seem legitimately concerned that if the game's too tough/complicated for younger players they'll get frustrated and move on to something else.
