Any veteran fans of the pokemon games playing these games casually?

And by casual I mean you're not looking at the IV points pokemon nature etc etc you just pick pokemon you like and have them on your team.

When I do regular runs, yes. Like my Black version has cheapmons.

Since Emerald, I've been semi-casual. I only train what I like, though I will EV train (since it's so darn easy now) and put some emphasis on natures so they can be used in Battle Subway, PWT, and White Forest. I don't stress IVs, but I do have some Dittos that I will use to pass on an appropriate 30/31 IV via breeding.

Yeah, I've been playing since Red/Blue and I don't really care about IVs.

I always do that in-game. If I am battling a friend I either use my in-game team or I breed new Pokemon and only try for certain natures. I only bother with Evs and IVs in the Subway/Frontier-like areas. And WiFi of course.

Play with what I like, I've never bothered with Evs and IVs

I always play through with whatever I like, ignoring a lot of those 'extra' mechanics (I don't even look at natures. I mean, I look at it, out of curiosity, but more because I think it gives the monster more "personality;" I don't care if it's a bad nature or whatever).

After I've completed almost everything in the game, I'll start breeding for the IV/nature/etc and training with EV. But I only do this for stuff like Subway or playing in the VGC. If I don't feel like doing those things, I don't.
