This question has been bugging me for ages and I decided to post it here and maybe find the answer. So why didn't he appear in PWT? He's a part of E4 now, but in PWT former gym leaders and Champions like: Giovanni, Lenora, Brycen, the Trio, Blue, Steven amd Adler all participate, so why didn't he?

I suppose it's only because he's a current member of Kanto/Johto's Elite Four, and no other Elite Four members showed up in the tournament.

5 months is a while for me, OK?

But he's a former Leader so he's allowed to participate. For example Blue is a gym leader, but he participates along Champions because he once was one.

OK! just giving ya a hard time. I think id would be nice if they added another room for elite four members that werent in the other tournaments. Like an add on after you beat all the other regions

I thought about it as well. They're way better than gym leaders, but they don't get any roles in the games

Used to think the same thing until playing the Champions tournament.

Wait, my original point still kinda stands. Koga is still a member of the E4, none of which showed up at all. Only explanation I can see tbh.

Pirates vs. ninjas.

I agree with Eiche on this one, Koga is still currently an active member of the elite four of Kanto/Jhoto, while everyone who appears are either current/former gym leaders or were former champions at one point. Nobody from the various elite fours participate either, too bad since Koga is one of my favorite characters. Elite four members don't seem to be allowed to just take off like the champions do, probably because they get way more challengers and few get past them.

What I'd like to know is why is Bianca in the Unova and World Leader tournaments since shes only Juniper's assistant, Cynthia gets a pass for technically being defeated by the player in gen IV. Couldn't they just have stuck a miscellaneous group in for characters who don't fit in the other categories?

What I want to know is why they didn't include the E4. They're better than all the gym leaders, so they don't get to be in the tournament of all the best trainers?

There are enough people for each region to havre its own tourney, but there are only four elite four per region so that wouldn't work. Maybe there wasn't enough room for a whole new tourney?

What I'd like to know is why Red gets to pass on a technicality for being champion, but Koga doesn't get to pass on a technicality for being a gym leader? Maybe Gamefreak have a thing for the strong silent type?

They'll probably have an E4 Tour download eventually.
