If I cared about winning I would have given up on Call of Duty a LONG time ago.
I haven't really done that much online battling with Pokemon yet, but I plan to once I finish off the elite four and get a team set up. I currently don't know squat about EV training or Natures, or IV's or Breeding...but I plan to learn as I go.
Everyone wants to win, just they they would rather have fun while trying to win rather than just focusing solely on winning. Or my interpretation anyway. Also, what's 'plebs' --- Don't play to win, play for fun. Love playing games with people, that's why I love Wi-Fi 3DS: 1203-9417-6170, PSN: Trixster196
