The bitch near of the old man:
>Thanks to my dad's Garchomp, I was able to achieve 20 consecutive wins~

Why the Battle Resort reeks... Competitiveness?
-The old guy and the woman saying these things.
-The Dragon Tamer in the dock saying that he's training to the "Pokémon World Championships" (a real world event).
-Wally turning in a hyper competitive fag after you get 50 consecutive wins.
-Most part of the Battle Resort is compost of... Collectors (the fat/lunatic trainer class), instead of a bunch of ace trainers or something like this. I can't help but think that it's like they're showing the ""real"" competitive pokémon fanbase in the game.

Specifically, here's his treatise on the topic of "scrubs":

True. I tend to pick a karen shitmon and surround them with a good team.
>>
>>24981996
>The scrub's problem? He does not play to win.
And that is why what >>24981975 said is false; Karen was attempting to win with her favorite Pokemon. Karen also mentions that the idea of "strong Pokemon" or "weak Pokemon" is the selfish perception of people, similar to how Sirlin states that the scrub labels a wide variety of tactics as "cheap".
>>
>>24982049
that's actually a fair point.

>>24982049
its not perception tho

Imagine not actually liking a single member of your team.

>>24982049

Is it a fact that Raichu is weak compared to Greninja, or is that the "selfish perception of people"? Is Greninja considered "OP" by many folk out there? That's what Sirlin was talking about. Karen's a scrub. (That bitch never gave me trouble btw)
>>
>>24981975
>Sirlin
Doesn't cover rng

Reminder nearly any old shitmon can win if it gets good rolls. Karen is right, for the wrong reasons.

Is it cheating to breed legit pokemon from a hack you get in GTS?

How do you know that t
he pokemon you receive in wonder trade weren't bread from hacks?

>>24983416
>balance bans
Again, Smogon are scrubs.
>>
>>24983683
Scrubs that would beat you 9/10 matches in any format you chose
>>
>>24983717
Spore and boo boo keys say otherwise :^)
>>
>>24983717
Not if I used the tactics that they describe as "cheap"
>>
>>24983743
Not to excessively Smogonfag here, but if you're using 'cheap' tactics, then a Smogonfag is going to use them right back.

The downside is that, depending on what those tactics are, the game can end up being a bunch of coin flips rather than being determined by player skill.

Smogonfags (like I used to be and still am to a lesser degree) don't mind being 'scrubs' if it means getting to play the game in an enjoyable context rather than having two players miss a Moody Bibarel's Substitute for an hour.

As long as you don't claim to be "playing to win" when, from the looks of it, that couldn't be further from the truth.
>>
>>24982097
That's an awful example because Jynx was rop tier in Gen I, and has only fallen off thanks to better sleep abusers popping up.
>>
>>24982303
It's not like you can play them against each other, unlike the real game.
>>
>>24980748

> Pokémon that can win

You can win just fine with any Pokémon from the game. You will only have problem if you go online, since people do this:

Which would be a rather dark way of being a trainer.

Why don't you just fuck off, you stupid, insufferable overcompetitive faggot?

Double team says hello, since they don't seem to know about the always hit moves, or Haze. Also, Spore. Enjoy 6 sleeping pokemon.

So... Who's hyped for the Primal Don spam in vgc 16? I can see Mega Mawile making a comeback with the help of Primal Kyo. Sadly, it looks like Gardy will be taking the role of support this year.

>>24984636
>Not being able to win online with your favorites
Get good or go home. "I can't win with the guys I like so I'll use the pokemon everyone everyone else are using." Learn the game and stop sucking so much cock. It's almost like you're OP.
