breeding for shiny pokemon?

Im not trying to get trolled here I would just like to see peoples opinion and why it matters so much to them on how people choose to play their game.

Personally, I love shiny hunting and getting my shiny pokemon with perfect IV's and nature.
Respectively, I could care less is others like to use cheating devices to play their own way.

So...what gives?

We don't care how YOU want to get it, we just don't want to be told OUR way is somehow wrong. It sometimes comes off as hatred for people who breed because we're told how lazy we are for not breeding and must respond with how we don't WANT to breed.

Oh I am lazy and a cheater because I do not want to spend hours playing a video game for kids doing the same repetitive s*** over and over in lieu of using a computer program to accomplish the same thing in like 4 minutes? I'd rather be a cheater than waste my time, thanks.

So you don't think it has to do with the notion that people want to compete at the highest level possible, but not put in any effort for it?

OK I hate how people think spending hours hatching eggs is related to effort. The simple answer is that people have better things to do with their free time than hatch eggs in a Pokemon game.

If people dont feel like spending time breeding then maybe they should play simulators instead

Thats an unfair ultimatum. Why does it matter how someone chooses to play a game that is specifically made for our entertainment?

The effort goes into proper team building and testing, which (Ansem) can be done on the simulator. Then, we use other devices to get the final result of our effort onto the cartridge w/o playing the RNG. Hatching for Shinies/IVs is no more effort than playing the lottery, but skipping the luck of both has far differing consequences.
