how can there be a top pokemon battler? Couldn't a person just make a counter team and beat the champion? Or a good pokemon battler measured by his win/loss ratio?

Pokemon battling is more than just team composition.

That's right! It's about the spirit of friendship! If you love your pokemon enough you'll begin to understand them. And as your feelings begin to resonate you'll both mega evolve into true champions!

Many tournaments, especially in preliminary rounds, do more of a round robin thing where it ends up using your win/loss ratio there.

Later in the rounds, you have to make it through however many rounds there are based on the number of people remaining, winners progressing to the next round, until the top two meet in the finals.

Winning a tournament isn't just beating one guy. The concept of "top pokemon battler" doesn't really exist, certainly not in the sense you seem to think it does.

Every team has a counter every counter has a counter counter

The best players are the ones who have a great team and great skill and can predict the moves thier opponent will make and know how to counter the foes move

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of breeding commitment, prediction, and HAX.

But yeah, if friendship floats your boat, have at.

Is it about to being to analyze your current situation and choose your moves and switch-ins appropriately? I really have no idea.

The top battler is the one who can spam fissure and sheer cold with the best success rate.
