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 --- A+E

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. --- GT: Ayumi Spender ~~~~~~~~~~ PS0: 4597 9585 4793 Only talk to me when I order you to.

Competitive battles is the best part to me i love a good battle. the 2nd best part would be raising the pokemon of course. --- 3DS FC- 2981-5785-3794 Pokemon white 2 FC-2838-7906-7636

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 am the only true Pokemon fan. Find me at: http://www.youtube.com/user/AdventOfTherian/about

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. --- Wait I got it!
