Team Smogon: -40 new pokemon, all competitively balanced -IVs extremely streamlined. obtaining a perfect IV pokemon will take 30 minutes tops. -IVs and EVs are both shown numerically in game -Online battling is on par with Showdown. get to join "clans" and such with personal banlists. battle customization rules are endless. -No new mega-evolutions. some were removed. all receive heavy nerfs. -All older weaker pokemon are retconned buffs. Everything is viable. -Vs. Seeker brought back -Game is mostly postgame focused. Campaign is shorter than usual, but a lot more difficult. Huge amount of battling resources and content after the main game.
Team Karen: -140 new pokemon, some extremely broken, others garbage, a lot in the middle -No changes are made to IVs or EVs. -Online Battling remains the same. -30 new mega-evolutions. Most follow the same pattern as the current mega-evolutions. -Older pokemon remain the same. -Pokemon follow you again. -Game is mostly campaign focused. Postgame is shorter than usual. Main story is very long and very involved. The plot is very epic, on par with a more story based RPG.

I know most people on here would go for Team Smogon, but Team Karen sounds like a much, much better game to me. --- Aut viam inveniam, aut faciam. 3DS FC: 3222-6121-8437

smogon is definitely the better game --- I'm tired of everyone I know, of everyone I see, on the streets and on TV.

I'll vote Team Karen, mainly because I want more Pokemon games. --- Official Amnesiac Darkrai of the Pokemon X Board You know why spiders know how to spin webs when they hatch? Because F*** You! That's why.
Team smogon because its the most logical thing to do.
Gamefreak will never balance as much or as well as smogon would. Sacrificing 1 game to fix alot of the issues with pokemon is worth it. Remember that the game after this one would retain all the balancing and iv changes. --- "With only laughter can you win" add me 3ds fc 0447-6293-3999 for pokemon x/y safari.

I want a more fun game, not more streamlined online matches. did we forget pokemon is an actual video game, not "get through the story as fast as you can so you can start building a competitive team to battle online until the next generation"?

Team Karen. It sounds fun. Smogon sounds like I'm at my doctors office in the paper gown with the AC on full blast.
