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

Ok, I'll bite. What are these super-creative child-beating teams you guys all see/use, that simply can't be done in ranked battles?


I use my swagger psych up Offensive klefki paired with purugly.

I did use it in rated but the ratings reset so i'm not going to do rating battles for a bit.

100% of legal ganefaqs users are 13+, therefore, not kids.

Free battles are the only place where I don't see garchomp, rotom, talonflame, and scizor on every team.

In what universe is being 13 years old 'not a kid'? Definitions vary, but in general you still have 'kid' status until you're at least 17.

You're a teen in that case. I'm talking about kids. Kids who don't know any better than to continuously use the same attack repeatedly, even though it's doing literally 0 damage. Don't split hairs.

I don't know. I bumped into a shocking number of players that tried to use Psychic on Malamar in Rated. Then again, I've also run into a lot of otherwise good players who think Malamar is the perfect thing to set up in front of, so maybe it's just that people forget about the existence of Malamar.

That said, while I haven't yet had a Free Battle yet, when I do get around to it, it will be because I want to use my legends/events for something other than beating Le Wow/Serena for the purpose of level grinding. Without IRL Pokemon fans to battle with, Free Battle is pretty much the closest thing I can get to an ubers experience, in-game.

I'm not even going to lie; I genuinely do enjoy making children sad. I really, really do.

Fair enough, but take it from me, it really sucks the fun out of it when the players are so bad. I mean really, just stick to in-game, you'll seriously find more challenge there.

As to the variety comments, again, that doesn't really matter when everybody sucks at using the Pokemon. They might as well all be Luvdisc.
