Serious competitive gaming in general is pretty pathetic, but people who bring that attitude to games like smash bros or ESPECIALLY Pokemon, which are clearly designed with no intent for competitive play...those are the most pathetic people of all.


Maybe you ought to, you know, try it out before moaning about it.

They're clearly designed with no intent for competitive play- that's why official competitive tournaments are hosted and multiplayer battles were put in the game!

Seriously?

We're not in the 90s any more. Competitive gaming has kinda been a thing for awhile now.

And considering that Pokémon probably has one of the best PVP battle systems out there (Not that I'm an expert or anything ).... It'd be a shame if no one played it competitively at all!

I don't like Smogon because their staff is worthless. Gamefaqs mods are saints compared to those things.

Nope, not even close. Smogon actually has consistency. Though they're much more effective at weeding out trolls though because of the smaller community which is a big reason someusers hate it.

Only 12 year olds just believe whatever others tell them.
