What do you suppose is the casual to competitive ratio?

Out of all the pokemon fans I talked to at Anime Expo, only 2 of them said they play pokemon competitively. I talked to hundreds of, obvious, pokemon fans this weekend, and it seemed like everyone is all about beating the elite 4 and giving up. Is a little competition too much to ask for?

I'd say probably 500+:1

To me it's all about beating the game, getting every Pokémon in my PC Box, doing every side mission/game/extra the game have, and... that's it.

Competitive battles is the best part to me i love a good battle.
the 2nd best part would be raising the pokemon of course.

Something like that. And from my own experience, what's worse is that even among the ones who say that they're "competitive," a good number of them aren't actually all that good and are just scrubs who copy sets/teams online without knowing what they're doing.

Anime expos are so worthless and pathetic. I expected more competitive players there, to be honest

I used to play competitively but then I quit some time around the HG/SS days.

I think 500+:1 sounds about right, especially when you consider the fact that the majority of Pokemon players are children. They obviously don't go on Gamefaqs, but despite all the 17-25 year olds on these boards, I'm confident that the majority of Pokemon players are kids.
