To be fair, they made sense for Gen 7, considering Alola is a region based on culture and tradition.That's easy(for me at least);
those B100dy Island Trials from Gen 7; Good Riddance; and thank goodness they're not in Let's go Pikachu & Eevee; Nor are they in Pokemon Sword & Shield; I was never a fan of them when gen 7 started; and I Certainly don't miss them NOW; Seriously, I might be off-base when I say this; But Gyms were & are so much better than the Island trials ever could hope to be; the Pokemon Gyms never deserved to be cast aside in gen 7, until later in that generation, during the release of Let's go Pikachu & Eevee, where they have FINALLY made their triumphant return. . . and they appear to be back for Gen 8; Meaning they're not going away any time soon!!
They didn't even have a Pokémon League when you start your adventure, so there would be no point in Gyms.
