I'm really enjoying it so far. I actually like how they force you to use different Pokemon, and that the links are reset. If you could use any Pokemon and they all remained at the same link percentages, it would be difficult for the post-game to be made.
Because they're separated into episodes rated on a 5-star difficulty, if your Pokemon didn't reset their links, you would basically end up having your favorites being too strong, making them all too easy, or having some being too weak, etc. "Starting over from scratch" is the easiest way to prevent this from becoming an issue, and it makes the chapters feel like a new experience, as opposed to simply extending your previous experience (even though that's all that's happening).

I love being able to learn more about the other warlords. In terms of narrative, the episodes seem to contain the perfect mixture of seriousness and silliness.
