Exactly, Pokemon has a very deep metagame.

Deep my ass. Abuse weather and entry hazards, and pray you get lucky.

You clearly know nothing of the metagame if you think it's all about weather and entry hazards. It also takes skill.

Yes, entry hazards and weather are game-defining, but they're not all it takes to win.

Not to mention all the weaknesses and strengths you have to memorize for the various moves.

Not to mention the breeding for perfect IVs and the hunting for EVs you have to do before you even start the fighting.

People hear "Pokemon" and think it's one-dimensional but there's plenty of effort involved.
When your friend's last words to you include "Who else will I eat ice cream with?!" You might want to rethink your friends. ^^;
