I always hated having the E4 scaled in a certain order. I think Gamefreak realized some players train to beat the Champion specifically, and by that point, the first member being five or more levels under made absolutely no sense. Thus, making the Champion a couple levels above everyone else and putting all E4 members at the level of the would-be final challenger does two things:

1) Gives the player control of how to best battle the E4 with his or her team, and
2) Makes each of the E4 battles equally difficult in challenge, forcing you to find weaknesses on each.

I like it!
