The PWT was fun for a couple weeks, but after a while, I decided that 7-battle runs with continuous streaks felt much more rewarding than 3-battle runs with no way to keep track of how many in a row I've won.

I think that's why my liking of Gen V has been sorta waning lately. I mean, besides the stupidly linear region. PWT is kinda cool for nostalgia, I guess, but it just feels like Frontier Lite. I spend more time in the Subway now, where it's Singles, Doubles, Multi, or nothing. So we pretty much get Battle Tower and a Fun-sized version of the Frontier in the town over. It just doesn't keep my attention.

Yes, bring back the Battle Frontier. Bring back Emerald's Battle Frontier.
Damn, I'm good!

The Subway was a nice, if style over substance, change from the Battle Tower. But to have nearly double the Pokémon in Emerald and not have them used in offensively-oriented facilities like the Arena and Hall, support-oriented facilities like the Pyramid and Castle, luck-oriented facilities like the Pike and Arcade, etc. was a waste of potential.

That said, I don't get the comparison between the Battle Frontier (either) and the PWT. With its three-match-streaks, the latter is somewhat closer to the Emerald Battle Tents, combined with gym leader rematches (which had previously been present in Emerald and Platinum, likewise "third versions", but not the initial pairs of RS and DP).

BTW there certainly are ways to keep track of your streaks in the Castle and Hall, at least.
