I think their introduction in Kanto was great, the way it was thundering and lightning made it all seem scarier to have them there but then when they would start attacking in every episode they lost their threatening status which is what I liked in Unova how when they were shown it was always in dark, dingy tunnels or someplace at night. They brought back the fear and made them seem like real criminals, between important events that the group took part in it was TR's planning that would make me watch each episode to find out more which is something I've not felt with Pokemon for a long time. I think that the use of more rivals has certainly lessened the pressure on TR to be comedic so they could become dangerous again whilst Stephan and Bianca were providing the comedy. In every other region Ash has only ever had one major rival so TR were needed to be funny almost every episode.
