Especially since Steven was amazingly hard in his own right (even though his Aggron was running Special moves. wut?), Wallace just felt...weird. Steven ran Pokemon that you hadn't even seen yet. Metagross, Cradily, Armaldo, Skarmory? You were lucky to have even seen Skarm, and a new player wouldn't know to attack its weak Special Defense (or rock out with a Magneton?). Metagross...is a Pseudo Legendary, so obviously it's going to be somewhat difficult, ESPECIALLY since you don't know its typing if you were only playing the game for the first time. So yes, Steven was a huge challange. Wallace was a let-down.
(Don't tell anyone that Misty's Seaking in the PWT steamrolled me back and forth in a doubles battle)
