Just curious.
Can you defeat a Level 9 Mewtwo in Melee with Pichu? Yes, if you have that kind of skill.
Hoping for Pokemon Thunder Yellow for 3DS.

Is Metroid's gun part of his armor or is he a cyborg like Data from Star wars?

Here are the extreme generalizations.

Competitive: No items, Fox only, Final Destination/Battlefield

Casual: all items, very high, Ganon only, Rumble Falls/New Pork City.

Honestly, they're flawed terms and it really depends on who you ask. If you ask me, the biggest determining factor is just whether or not you consider yourself competitive.

Casuals play for fun and don't care about playing hardcore. Competitive players are more serious about winning and (quite frankly) usually look down on the casuals as if they are 3-year olds playing the game with their feet.

Tbh I think both terms are ridiculous. Playing video games how you want to enjoy them is what makes them worth playing.

Not entirely true, at least as far as the conflict is concerned. Competitive players will more often look down on casual players, but casual players will more often hate competitive players for no real reason, assuming they consider themselves superior.

Competitive: Plays in Tournaments
Casual: Doesn't play in Tournaments.

Neither is a term used to insult someone.
