When you look at Barry from a rival standpoint, I don't think he's all that overpowered, especially since his Pokemon gradually grow after each battle. And it was nice for a change to face a trainer with such high-leveled Pokemon, since it'd been two whole generations since we got that much of a challenge (outside of Battle Tower, Frontier, etc.).

For his character, though, I found it hard to believe that he would be able to train his Pokemon that well, even if his father's the head of the Battle Tower. His personality suggests that he doesn't focus on one thing for very long, so it never made sense to me that he of all people would be the first trainer to out-level Red. I'm not saying it's impossible, but it just never made sense to me.
