First, I can't really play competitively in the games thanks to Nintendo hating my WiFi. Second, as others have mentioned, I have no time to catch something, make it a good nature, breed it, get great IVs, EV train it, and get it to level 100.
Making a team in Showdown is much simpler. I like the collecting aspect in the games, but would rather battle on Showdown.
Not changing this sig until The Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho happens on PPV (started October 4, 2009)
Or you could, you know not even talk to them. Kind of ironic a gamefaqs poster would say though hahaha.
I don't like Showdown because that means GameFreak will lose sales.
Ignoring the gimmick poster username, that doesn't even make sense. Showdown is only battling PVP which is nowhere near the amount of content the actual games have. Besides competitive battling will only strive after someone has already done the in-game more hours than others.
