Smogon isn't a King of anything, at best it may be closer to a cult?

Of course you should do what you wanna do when you're playing by yourself.

But when you want to play with a large number of other people, it's generally a good idea to have a body of uniform standards to govern conduct. Smogon provides fairly acceptable standards, thus its popularity.

But if you don't like them, feel free to buck them and play your way. Just don't be surprised when people don't want to play with you.

Because they have decent advice and study Pokemon thoroughly.
Face It, even If you disregard what they say, odds are your favorite Pokemon will still suck, not because they ruled It so, but because It's terrible.

As for battles, tiers are the main way to use those bad Pokemon online without worrying about giving a spot on the team for a better Pokemon. Just because you're using an unevolved team won't stop an online opponent from coming In with their own team of Legendary Pokemon unless you negotiate about before hand.

Yeah, I'd rather use their rules.

They don't have enough movesets for me though. I usually either have to edit them or use different ones altogether.
