Your friends are into competitive pokemon? I can barely find any that play something that's not a shooter or Skyrim. I think I've found two kids that even play Pokemon at the high school I went to, and neither played competitively. One didn't even evolve some of her pokemon. The other wasn't competitive at all and I pretty much solo'd his entire team using my first EV trained gengar.
There's a ton of people at my school who play Pokémon. I didn't even play it before I came there, then they persuaded me.
I also run a stall team, and it's fun to watch them get upset. Especially when I use a Furfrou or Lickitung.
Every time I find the key to success, somebody changes the locks.
Psh. My friend and I openly express out hatred for each other during Pokemon matches. I think it just transferred over from our hours spent playing Smash Bros together. There's no way you can play that game with other people and not get angry at them, especially when everyone is trolling.
