How Well Does The Elite Four Represent Their Regions – Part 2

Yo! I decided to come at you with the second part of the Elite Four post. Next week, I’m going to start looking into the Champions, and then maybe the rivals.


Unova

Like with Kanto, all of the Elite Four will have all Unovan Pokemon, as until post-game there are only Unovan-native Pokemon in the Black/White games. Again, we’ll talk about type representation.

All I can say is that each type is well represented here in the chosen Pokemon.


Kalos

Kalos had the least amount of new Pokemon of any region, which limits their choices. This will be interesting, considering their teams are quite small, just like the Unovan Elite Four.

Out of all the Pokemon here, exactly half of the Pokemon here are Kalos Pokemon. I mean, that’s fine and all, but…Kalos was an easy region anyway.


Alola

There are five different members of the Elite Four, as Molayne replaces Hala in the Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon games.

We can see a distinct pattern where while each team has the corresponding type in every Pokemon, there are only two out of five Alolan Pokemon representing each team.


Galar

I included the Galar Champion Cup for this, because it’d have been rude not to! I had to separate them into separate tables, or else they all wouldn’t fit.

Well we can tear this one completely I suppose. Well I guess that the teams average out pretty well. While Hop and Bea have very diverse teams with only (up to) two Galar Pokemon at their disposal, Raihan focused more on setting up weather tactics, so only has Duraludon as his only Galar Pokemon. Everyone else has two Galarian Pokemon on their teams, much like the Alolan Elite Four.
