Why do you guys play free battles? Do you enjoy beating children?

I play ranked, but I tried my first free battles since launch week in order to test out a rotation team.

Even forgetting strategies that are specific to the format, the dozen or so players I fought all demonstrated a remarkable lack of knowledge on even the most rudimentary aspects of the type chart. Basic stuff like 'ghost is immune to fighting' and '4 turns later, ghost is still immune to fighting'.

I always see topics on here about 'how do I counter (pokemon banned from ranked play)?'. And I'm sure that there are a few skilled players who actually use them to their fullest, but I can't help but feel that the reason so many of you refuse to play ranked is because you enjoy beating little kids.

But beating the kiddies so called 'invincible' Mewtwo and friends without legendarys is so much fun...

I could have been a mentally disabled adult that kept using fighting moves on ghosts. You don't know.

I met some decent players on free battles. It's for those of us who don't want to face Smogon teams in every battle.

And would rather face what the game would be like without Smogon tiers.

Not sure who you're playing against, but I battle plenty of very competent players on free singles

Legendaries are a handicap. You might as well say 'that girl had the advantage of a wheelchair, and I still beat her up!"

Is beating people with disabilities any more satisfying?

You're telling me Mewtwo and Arceus are handicaps.
