Also, (this is something I just noticed) but Marvelous bridge and Village bridge are kind of opposites, aren't they? They mirror each other, with one being very old and historic, while the other is new and very technological.

As for ways they could have made this more apparent, it would have been interesting if one half of Unova was very, very technological, while the other was very old. (it kind of is, but not to an extremely noticeable extent)

Overall though, they did a very good job bringing out this theme. Especially with the visual differences between versions. :D
I have to say Golurk, nice thoughts there especially bringing up Iris and Drayden & Marvelous and Village Bridge there.

Some other opposites I noticed was that most of the version-exclusive Unova Pokemon had colors relating to their version. One obvious example is the Gothita line being primarily black and the Solosis line being white (they look green but maybe the body inside that green slime might be white) and also I noticed this with Whimsicott and Lilligant, Whimiscott is exclusive to Black and it has a dark face while Lilligant is exclusive to White and it has a light face.

Also, the not very version-exclusive Sawk and Throh have some opposites, and I noticed that their color matches the eyes of the Legendary they are more commonly found in.

Sawk, more common in Black is blue like Reshiram's eyes while Throh, more common in White is red like Zekrom's eyes.
Going away for a while.
