In the sense of which do you use, since Pokesav is obviously the more effective method for max stats pokes. But personally I like to train my pokes and I'd like to competitively battle, but if everyone is gonna have perfect, max stat, pokes, why even bother? So two questions, which do you prefer, and how prevalent are naturally trained pokes in the Wi-Fi metagame? --- Pokemon Black FC: 1979-4635-4855

I train mine up with Vitamins and EV training, followed by a full course of level grinding. It gives them a sasisfying taste, with a hint of mint. Plus the friendship adds a mild sweetness to the battle regardless of the outcome.
I don't really know the prevalence of Pokesaved Pokemon in wifi to be honest. Did I do a decent job of making Cilan style cooking puns? --- Badge Case [Time Badge] Strifehart is my OTP. FC: 4170-0917-6393 services performed at BSC: 1 Riley's Boyfriend on the BW2 boards. W2 FC: 3783 7001 3142

I liked your post wind. Lol. And I like simulators. But I also like the full interface of In-Game battles. --- Pokemon Black FC: 1979-4635-4855

I like my Pokemon to have right combination of IVs and EVs, but I prefer to train them from LV1 to LV100 myself. It's just my personal preference. --- Offical Lapras of the Pokemon Black 2 Board

I much prefer training my Pokemon myself, it gives you a sense of ownership, anything else just seems like 'borrowed' Pokemon. --- Brought to you by C.Dragon Entertainment Studios

I prefer PokeSav, mainly because I just don't have the time nor the patience to make them perfect, hatching countless eggs to have not only good IVs, but good nature and good egg moves(if it applies), but also do all the EV training and then the Level training, then repeat it for 5 other pokemons
sorry, but just too much trouble for me, which is why I prefer to battle in simulators, that way no one gets annoyed

I love breeding and training my own Pokemon. It's just as others have stated here, a big feeling of accomplishment and reward. --- "Garbodor is a fat little goose." - Metua
