You know I kind of dislike how the genie trio is allowed too as getting perfect iv ones are nearly impossible to get without genning and they're powerful as hell lol.... But really if your opponent has one it's not a automatic lost by any means but it does but you has a slight disadvantage,,,, I especially hate facing teams with genies and/or the lati twins on 6v6 no items since my team is just Talonflame/Azumarill/Hydreigon/Excadrill/Slowbro/Galvantula but even with that team consisting of no legends I managed to get #2 in the US on the special ladder.... But besides those legends I believe the others are fine even Heatran. --- Pokemon Y FC: 1177-7903-8110 IGN:Bryce
If Pokegen wasn't possible, it forces an element of 'play to win' into Pokemon.
I was pretty disappointed when I realized that I needed to buy Black 2 and White 2 and another DS just to get Landorus. Then I'd need to buy Dream Radar just to get a good one.
I bought Black 2 a while back, but I can't even get a Drain Punch Kangaskhan without buying Black 1 and another DS.
The biggest reason I don't play ranked is that I do not want to rank myself against people who aren't playing on an equal footing. Pay to win loyalty Legendaries and hacked Pokemon are both advantages that I don't have access to. Right now, fake Pokemon strategies are more supported by Gamefreak than legitimate playstyles.
