Shoddy died, then there was PokeLab for like a few weeks, then they moved to PO and now they have Showdown.

Also, PokeLab was fantastic and I think they should've sticked to it.

Not everyone has gone to Showdown. Some have stuck with the superior PO. Not only that, but the fact that Showdown is so open has resulted in a lot of crap players. It used to be that if I wanted quality matches on a frequent basis despite not being high ranked I would play on Smogon, and PO for casual matches. Now it's the other way around.

In my opinion, most people went to Showdown because they don't have to do arduous grinding in the form of EV training and getting the right nature and still get to fight. Some (like me) also want to experience how the metagame feels like.

People keep forfeiting to me in showdown. I'm not even that good. I went from 700(?) to 950 from mostly forfeited matches. I have gotten better though, as per I haven't played much past Emerald.

It's ridiculously hard to move up the ladder after awhile.
