Any game witha metagame as deep as Pokemon will spark debates.

There are so many underlying factors in the Pokemon system. It's nuts.

I kinda wish I never learned some of the stuff since it makes me realize that my casually-raised Pokemon are pretty much bound to be crap.

Exactly, Pokemon has a very deep metagame. The casuals, however, seem to hate the idea(Maybe because their team of six Charizards gets trounced by a team with actual thought put into it? I don't know) of their previous game having a competitive edge to it.

As for me, I'm in the middle, not really a fan of either side of things. I do feel that Smogon restricts a bit simply because I can't use my favorite team(Well, I could, but I'd get trounced since I'd be forced to play in OU), but at the same time, I respect the site and when I have need of help devising a strategy, I go there first.

Also, Charizard is still terrible.

Charizard? Psh, everyone knows the best Pokemon is obviously Blastoise.

If you're a casual player, you have no business in competitive battles, by virtue of you being a casual. Now if you hate that, then it's on you. Either stay and learn, or steer clear.
pardon if my posts suck, i post by tapping on the handset button on a one-way analog handset. i saw Hannibal Lecter do it.

Exactly. I don't battle competitively, but I do EV train my Pokemon and such. I tend to avoid topics like that because they all end ugly.
