So I don't know how everyone else felt, but I was expecting a bit..more. Incineroar handled Molayne. Primarina handled Olivia. Decidueye handled Acerola. Vikavolt/Mudsdale (can't remember which) handled Kahili. This left Kommo-o as back-up for everything. Then healed my mon before facing the Champion (using only items I received through the playthrough, not ones I bought) and then used exactly 1 mon against 1 mon each time so that they'd all be involved.
Why, for some reason, are my Pokémon at a higher level than any of the Elite four and Champion? I thought it was always the other way around and you had to face opponents who were 5-10 levels higher than you.
Also; love the switcheroo they did at the end on who the Champion was. Kind of a throwback to the original games except now you were in the shoes of Blue/Gary who has to defend himself against the rival/protagonist who came in just after him.

Team RR: Kommo-o pretty much handled every one of the ace Pokémon with ease, the only exception being Lysandre's, who Primarina handled, and Giovanni's, who Incineroar handled. And the only knock-out I received from Giovanni was on Primarina - and that one was simply because I refused to switch while Primarina was low on health and I wanted to see if she could handle his ace.
But yeah, the story of RR, while great, was a bit of a let down when it turned out it was nothing more than a gauntlet challenge. I was slightly expecting having to go around Alola, stopping the bosses midway their plot, while joining forces with the International Police. Or something like that.
Still interesting though, and I wonder if anything that was said in that episode might be foreshadowing Nintendo's next planned game.

I still have Necrozma left on Mt. Lanakila, so I guess I'll see how that goes.
