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
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 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.
