Nintendo should try to get Pokemon players more involved with the metagame

I brought this up with others a while ago, but now I'd like to post them here.

Let's say you could actually see your Pokemon's EV/IV tally. Now let's say you could see what EV you would gain for every Pokemon you beat and have the option to refuse EV you do not want. Let you change a Pokemon's nature and store multiple builds on the same Pokemon so you won't have to grind a different Poke for it. How about a Trainer levels up with his Pokemon and can automatically level up Pokemon he catches to cut tedious grinding? Servers like in Pokemon Online with the ability to create tiers?

How about instead of types, gym leaders try to balance their teams out and focus on competitive strategies? How about the ability to switch abilities, or maybe even have multiple on at the same time using a points system?

Thoughts?

Do not force competitive play on me, thanks. I like killing Audinos, ok?

Would be cool if competitive battling in pokemon was set up like starcraft 2, so I'm not always battling some 1337 japanese kid with hacked pokes.

I think they're trying this by having the PWT and downloadable tournaments so people can fight against AI controlled Ray Rizzo

The trainer system is a bad idea. EV being shown is fine but hide it from casual players as not to intimidate them. Refusal should not be allowed as that is part of the natural cycle of playing the game and the reason for EV in the first place is that normally it leads to unique pokemon stats.

However the only idea I agree with is the gym leaders being more balanced. Nothing is worse than constantly fighting these gym leaders and beating them with one pokemon because they are the best trainers in their region but can't balance a team.

Even with that though you would have to split the game into two modes. Easy and Hard so they don't alienate part of the fan base.
