"Strong Pokemon. Weak Pokemon. That is only the selfish perception of people."

"Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites."

And on that note, I've got an academic paper to write about the guy who remixes Barack Obama's speeches into popular music.

The operative word there is "try." Just because it's your favorite, doesn't you'll win with it.

I like Farfetch'd. But have I excluded him from nearly every competetive team of mine because he sucks? Yes.

That message is poetic. And works in the storyline of Pokemon. It's about friendship and trust.
Games are based on numbers, however. And gameplay dictates that there ARE in fact strong and weak Pokemon. It's not up to selfish perceptions. It's up to hard-coded numbers. And numbers don't lie.

Not really. People would eventually figure out that some pokemon stomp while others cant do much. Anyone who actually believed that out of then 250+ pokemon that every one would be able to fight on equal footing is a darn fool. Especially with things like Magikarp around which were designed to be as pathetic as possible.

No.

Do you honestly believe people wouldn't figure out that Mewtwo is 100% more effective in use than say Magikarp (actually my percent listed is low in comparison to the fact of the matter.)


People would have found out one way or another, people who think otherwise are highly delusional.

I just won some normal rules random matchup using beedrill as a huge part of my team... He took out a Goodra and Zoroark and got some toxic spikes lain out... You can use whatever you want and do fine, overpowered pokemon get boring

Beedrill has been in my team in almost every game in the series dating back to the original RBY days. not sure why, He has never been the most effective. But I love him..I always get a little bit of a joyful spark whenever I see a weedle in a new game.
