Do you partake in competitive battling?

As the release date draws, I thought I'd make this little topic asking who here actually does competitive Pokemon battles.

Personally, I don't do competitive. I've been playing the games since Red and Blue and I didn't even learn about the aspects of competitive until Diamond and Pearl. It took be a fair bit to fully understand IVs, EVs, Tiers and everything else only for me to be very turned off by the amount of time and effort required to train Pokemon in such a manner.

Not only that, I'm a single-player gamer by nature and I'm not at all enthused about playing against people I don't know since I only enjoy multiplayer with close friends. I respect the time and effort people put into competitive battling but I'm fully content to play Pokemon single player.

I did in Gen II.

Other games have caught my focus for more serious gaming since then.

Yes I do.

I'm hoping that IV's will be easier to deal with this gen. If not then I guess I'll just suck it up, and do it the annoying way.

At least until I can use Pokegen.
