It was terrible and the parts when it tried to be deep or meaningful felt out of place. It feels like halfway through the development process, they realized that they didn't make the story even close to the level of the Black & White story, and shoehorned in some boring flashbacks.
Yeah, the end of the Flare arc was good in theory but totally rushed, the reveal of Lysander was painfully obvious, and everything else about the team was just plain silly and unthreatening. Serena and Shauna actually end up playing interesting roles to an extent and helping out while growing as characters, but Tierno and Trever are absolutely useless, flat characters. Haven't played the Elite Four yet but I'm guessing nothing much happens, seeing as the story kind of died a gym ago.
There is actually an ending after entering the HoF, which is a nice change from what they usually do, but it's not much more than the credits montage from BW2. The only important thing that happens is that they tie up AZ's story.
In my opinion the game actually had a great plot going... until Shalour City. After that the plot drops like a several ton rock down a pit to never be seen again. I wish both the gym leader and the champion had more plot involvement than handing out badges/titles.
