As a 10 year old kid I learned alot about simple things like STAB, egg moves, base stats, strategies. what moves each Pokemon gets, etc through lectures and tests.

Even learning random stuff like even if a Pokemon might be weak to a certain move, it might not be the most damaging move you can use against it, or how to use some hidden combos like Defense Curl/Rollout, how to abuse your opponent when they used Hyper Beam.

Those were the days.

That's exactly how I learned about STAB.

Most of the mechanics weren't fully explained until then. Some could be found prior to that due to testing but not as much.

It taught me that I could use non-attacking moves for a good strategy. Thani you Toxic.

I don't play competitive. Too much time for something that doesn't really look all that fun to me.

Though, personally, I never understood the appeal of playing competitive anything. (Like CoD, sports, etc)
Don't argue with idiots as you will stoop to their level and they will beat you because of experience.

Meh, it's part of human nature.

The strive to do better than others (with a fair footing or close as one can have) and the ability to improve at a game (call them a sport if you want to, kind of the concept of sport, competition between two or more people)

That's your own problem and to be honest, you're not normal

It did introduce me to actual battling strategy. Earl's Academy was great and it's a shame they haven't done something similar to it again, especially when GameFreak keeps adding hidden mechanics to moves.

The Trainer School in XY should be like Earl's Academy, with lectures, quizzes, and tests you can do. Having something like the library would be nice as well.
