Browsing TV Tropes and I found this

"Take That: There's an Ace Trainer that you can fight in Chargestone Cave, who boasts about the fact that he's created the perfect team with the help of the Internet. After defeating him, he admits that he lost because he just took someone else's idea of building teams instead of coming up with it himself. How interesting...

To add on to this, Roxie herself mocks you in the World Tournament if you're guilty of doing the same thing."

They'll mock them by introducing more items and features to make breeding easier and more time efficient. Power items were a true punch to competitive battling.

If that didn't make sense, don't worry: This post, and this entire topic, sucks.

They are probably shots at the stop having fun guys.

It's okay to play the game completivly, but when you get so wrapped up at losing and winning that you aren't even using the pokemon you like then what's the point of even playing a game like pokemon anymore?

Because maybe your view of fun isn't the only one in existence?

He lost because the AI sucks. Apparently gamefreak is teaching the virtue that beating NPCs are something special. It is for children after all, giving them the ego boost of being "masters" when they only beat NPCs and would get demolished with real people with real brains

Nope, like I said playing competitiveness is jut fine. Heck I EV train plenty of pokemon, unless winning is all that matters towards having fun. Then games are pointless in general. If top tiered pokemon are your favorite then it's not a big deal, and there are lower tiers when playing at the very least.
