The Casual Battlers Club
(With Pokemon X and Y having been out for a little bit now [and with most people presumably finished or near-finished with at least their initial playthrough], and the previous club dedicated to this having been dead for several months, it seems like a good time for a new club dedicated to Pokemon fans who are into the more casual and relaxed side of Pokemon!)
THE CASUAL BATTLERS CLUB!
Mission Statement: The purpose of the casual battlers club is to discuss Pokemon games, share strategies and tales from our playthroughs, and organize casual battles between members.
What are "casual battles"?: Casual battling is playing Pokemon and battling online and against other members with a disregard for EVs, IVs, and metagame strategies. Its purpose is to enjoy Pokemon in its purest form without all the work that comes with breeding and grinding.
So if I understand breeding and EV training, I can't join? No, of course you can; we don't want to exclude anyone. I, personally, enjoy EV training and perfecting my Pokemon. But a lot of times, I just want to use the Pokemon I raised in playthroughs--Pokemon that I have grown close to and who have unknown IVs and a mixed bag of EVs--to battle others and have fun. So you can certainly enjoy competitive battling and still join, but we ask that if you participate in any matches between members, please do not use your competitively-trained Pokemon.
How do I join and what do I have to do? To join, all you have to do is ask and have a genuine interest in casual play in regards to Pokemon. And from there, all you'll need to do is participate in the group. Discuss your recent playthroughs, talk about your favorite Pokemon, discuss what appeals to you about the games and each generation, and perhaps even organize battles with other members when you both want to.
Hopefully this club draws your interest and you'd like to join. This opening post is sparse as of now, but hopefully it will grow as we move on and get more members. I'm hoping over time we can organize some casual play events like tournaments or themed-matches or the like, but I'm wanting to see what the interest in this club is and what its members want before I get too involved in planning events for it. I do have some ideas, though; and I'm hoping to get other motivated members to join up and help me make this the best club it can be.
1. Who is your single favorite Pokemon, and why?
1a (branch off topic) What Pokedex entries do you find the most creepy/weird/funny/shocking?
2. Which region is your favorite, and why?
3. If you made a team of your 6 favorite pokemon, what would they be?
