So I was going to start fresh with Pokemon

Haven't played since Platinum and even then I didn't really play that gen. I remember getting all into EVs and IVs, but that eventually sucked all the fun out of the game for me. Now I see that you can hack pokemon with the best stats and it is impossible to prove it's hacked. So is EV training practically worthless now?

Do people use those in tournaments? That doesn't seem too fair if they didn't work for that pokemon. It's a bit upsetting to know that all the work I have done is replicated by some hack in 5 minutes and there is no way to tell them apart.

I RNG breed and EV train, so each Pokemon that I use competitively has been worked on by me for at least two hours. RNG abusing is easy to learn and takes skill, unlike a simple hack that takes minutes. I think it's fair to use RNGing and EV training to get good Pokemon- it's a work of pride. I am very proud of the Pokemon that I raise and how their good at battling.

My collection:

I have raised each of them from eggs and they are all legit and tournament usable. I also have a Haxorus and Cloyster that I just haven't had time to upload.

EV training and IV values are supposed to be hidden factors to begin with. There is no 'legitimate' way to manipulate them. It doesn't matter if it takes you hours to cheat, or ten minutes. It's still cheating. Whatever helps you sleep at night though.

Glad to know SOMEONE knows what they're talking about.
