How many agree that Pokemon is Luck based?

Do you agree with the title?

Pokemon takes Skill, but how far will Skill take you?

When Critical Hits, hitting that Focus Blast or getting 1 Turn sleep is all Luck Based. In my opinion, good players can never truly shine because of how Luck based this game is.

I want to hear what the community has to say on this.

When it comes to Pokemon, I like Generation V over Generation I. Flame me.

It's more skillful.

Luck factors also exist within card games, and general sports, but the problem is the luck factors do not instantly wager a bad player a win.


For instance in cards, a person could geta bad hand and still end up on top.

Sure, sometimes more inexperienced players win, but it isn't within a decent ratio where the bad player has favorable or even mediocre odds of winning constantly or back to back against skilled players.

There are so many topics on this and you had to make a user name for them

Gonna get on the mario party 9 board too, that would be a nice place to go.

Depends if you take a risk or not.

Battle Armor is removing the risk of criticals, but taking away another ability. Most people take the risk and use the other ability over Battle Armor. Sure-hit moves take away the risk of missing, but most people rather ate a risk and use high-powered moves. GF has been giving options to remove any luck factors, but people would rather use more powerful options over reliability.

No, still majority skill based.

There are sometimes situations where luck may alter the outcome of a match, but a good trainer will always expect the worse from a situation to adjust to it.

Are you trying to justify being a baddy?
