They either have crap movepools, crap abilities, crap types, or crap stats. Its depressing as hell that i'm practically forced to use pokemon i feel incredibly "meh" about if i want to do any sort of multiplayer

None of mine are, either. But fortunately I don't have much interest in playing competitively.

Have you tried playing one of the lower tiers? That's why I avoided OU when I started and stuck to UU, but there's also RU and even NU metagames.

Thatīs why there are different tiers. Play in a tier with Pokemon you like.

Also, you CAN take those Pokemon to high-tier battles. You just have to be a bit more clever to win with them.

Yeah most of my favorites are pretty crap competitively. I think the only ones that are good are Skarmory...oh wait that's pretty much it.

Came here to post this. I stick to NU and UU because of that. Those tiers are also arguably more fun(they are to me) than OU because the teams you face actually tend to differ greatly.

Because you don't play triples and/or you're not competent enough to make them work.
