Have you been watching the Sinnoh Saga, lately?
Jessie has been kicking ass in contests. I think their skills get bogged down, because they're always losing to Ketchum and co. But, Ash and his revolving door of traveling companions, are usually way above average battlers. If TR chose weaker targets, they might be more successful. But as they say, they're destined to hunt, Ash's Pikachu.
And to be honest, sometimes the inherent moral compass of the protagonist faction (Ash's crew), makes them look like, for lack of a more reasonable tern, they're just being dicks to TR. I mean in the Phione episode, was their really any reason for them to thwart TR"s efforts to snatch that "wild" Phione. Not imo. But of course, TR gets screwed over again. I know TR is suppossed to be an evil syndicate, but, c'mon, can't a playa get a break?
"I am of the opinion that as Pokémon Red and Blue were about to be released, Farfetch'd accidentally spilled some ink on the suit of one of the most important Game Freak staff members. Since then, they have hated Farfetch'd and did everything they could to make this thing suck as much as possible on the battlefield."
