The reason I ask is because I'm trying to figure out how the developers came to conclude that challenge mode should be unlocked only after the elite 4. I can't understand why they would do such a thing. I know even with challenge mode the game is always going to be easy but even with just the minor level increases and AI boost, it would make the experience so much more enjoyable. I would even consider waiting until someone would finish Black 2 and pass me the key before I started but I personally do not know anyone who plays pokemon in my area. I hate Game Freak.
The main game doesn't continue the story is done. But it's main purpose is to make the end game trainers more challenging. Story mode there's really no difference that's to dramatic (Slight moves set changes for gym leaders, a few more levels, a new pokemon). Anything that's after the elite 4 though is fair game to be noticeably more challenging. N and his weather teams (probably THE hardest on challenge mode) Elite 4 rebattles, Rival battles, etc. (Maybe opponents in world tournament play better ( i believe difficulty effects the AI) because their levels and moves won't change)
