Anyone planning on doing anything differently this gen?

Breaking old habits? Taking up new ones?

Gen 6 is going to be the gen of change for me. I have never battled against anyone other then friends IRL, this time around I plan on getting into competive wi-fi battling. I'll probably get severly owned, but that's alright, I don't really care about winning or losing. I will have to learn about IV's, EV's Natures and Smogon though....I guess.

I'm also planning on nicknaming EVERY SINGLE POKEMON I find this gen. I've always been one of those guys who just mashes B after when the Nickname option comes up, but no more.

I took a break from competitive for a while once BW2 came out, so I'll get back into that.

Other than that, I've no real changes other than to actually start battling with friends I know, because none of my friends have played since Gen IV and I've convinced some of them to buy these, which is awesome

Well, usually I'd spoil all the new Pokemon, gym leaders, plot, etc. before getting the game, but that won't really be possible this time around. So there's that.

I don't know if I'm going to do anything else differently. Probably not.
why you be hatin', mosquito?

I think I'll make a bigger effort in collecting.

I've almost never been a fan of "Gotta catch 'em all". While things are always subject to change as I play the game, I always plan ahead more or less what I want to get for my party or at least what type of party balance I want to have. And if I have no interest in catching a pokemon for my party or training my current pokemon I'm spamming repel like crazy.

I think this gen I do want to go the collector route and if we do get a well done DLC system going (which I am totally ok with) I'd even make an effort to collect them all sans legionaries.

I'm gonna play through the game like the old days for once. Not that I have a choice this time....

I think I might only play one file of this game I usually reset my game so many times that I lose all my stuff. One file train them all and try to legitimately catch em all. Possibly play competitively but not rng anything like I have in gen 5.

Try to not look up any guides on the Pokemon, so I don't see their move pools, evolution levels, locations, etc.

I'm seriously hoping they don't reveal any more Pokemon until at least the week before the game releases, and then I hope it's not the entire Kalos PokeDex.

I'll be picking the grass starter for the first time since gen 2...gen 1, 3, 4, and 5 I've had fire starters. XD

Was considering using team of 12, instead of six. Depends whether or not Audinos or VS seeker are things in X and Y. Leaning towards not likely of these happening.
