There are very few Drizzletoad's that are legitimate. It wouldn't be nearly as common if it wasn't for PokeGen and other programs.


First, I would like to know how you know how many are legitimate.

Second, no. It would be as common because they are incredibly easy to come across to anyone who has access to Wi-Fi. There might be less without Smogon and there might be less without competitive battles, but Drizzle is a strong strategy and people are going to make semi-coherent teams with or without competitive battles.

Third, the inability to hack, RNG, etc. Pokemon would not mean less Drizzletoad. It would mean less Drizzletoad with perfect IVs, etc.


It would mean less Drizzletoad, because people hack because they don't feel like 'wasting their time' playing legitimately. Thus, they are less people who would feel like putting the effort into getting a Drizzletoad. It's a matter of statistics.

So you genuinely believe there would be less people using it because they'd have to breed over and over to get a "good" one, but they would have no issue using almost literally every other Pokemon because only Drizzletoad would require RNG, etc. to get good stats.

There would be a decrease in the use of Drizzletoad. You cannot deny the situation. It would become less common since less people would deem it worth the effort because you couldn't PokeGen one.

Drizzletoad needs perfect stats to be useful on it's own (ignoring drizzle). People forgot how insanely significant perfect stats and natures are in competitive battling.

It would decrease the use in Drizzletoad in the sense that less people might be competitively battling, and thus there would be less Pokemon all around.

Otherwise, please tell me the magical innate quality that makes people look at Drizzletoad above all others and refuse to use it unless they can get perfect IVs, but accept lesser IVs for all other Pokemon.

What about the people that -can't- get certain things legitimately? (like, lacking a 3DS/Wifi to get to dream world and such)
