Have you always used Repels but now stopped using them? Or you never EV trained until this Gen. Share your thought here. It can be moving on to a new favorite or using a brand new strategy!
I used to not know about EVs until the fourth generation and in Diamond is when I started some EV training. From then on, it is a tradition for me to do so in the games. The same is for repels which I use mostly while on grss to wait until it rustles. Also, lately, I have started training more than just six pokemon on my team and I rotate and level them up evenly which I have not done before.
I've never not used my masterball before, but Black 2 is probably going to be a first since there's no roaming legendaries.
^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
I never knew how to EV train untill now(now I at least attempt to EV train).

Thanks Fairywitch for the button!
I never bothered much with non-damaging moves or items that didn't increase damage somehow besides the Amulet Coin, but somehow in W2 I discovered the magic of Thunderwave + Electroball on my Magnezone (though I'd be keeping the former move anyway for the sake of catching things), as well as Big Root + Leech Seed on my Serperior.
I never used to nickname my Pokemon, but now I try to always give my main team themed names. I don't know why I enjoy it so much, really.

I used to always try to avoid the trainers when I was younger. Now I make it a point to battle every trainer in the game.

Anyone who says all pokemon are created equal cearly hasn't had much experience with Unown.
I never gave my pokemons any held items back then. But now I do in order to increase their performance in battles.
Never did competitive battling until Gen IV.
Never trained a full in-game team of Pokemon up until Gen IV. I'd always wreck the entire game with just the starter due to my impatience.
I would always train at least one Pokemon up to Level 100 without the assistance of Day Care or cheating device (until Gen III).
Before fourth gen I made sure to battle trainers as soon as possible. Now that I EV train, I try to preserve as many trainers (exp)for my post-game/EV trained team.

Two things: I used to avoid ALL the trainers. I also never EV trained.
Same with me. When people said EVs, I assumed they were talking about Eevees. I didn't actually know about EVs until Gen V and that's when my team started actually becoming strong.
Plus in Diamond (the first Pokemon game I had), I used my Level 100 Starter ... as a HM Slave. I know, it's pretty stupid but I didn't have a clue about Pokemon in those days. Never again.
I never used to use HM slaves, because I hadn't thought of the concept until I saw chuggaaconroy do it (I think it was him anyway). As a knock-on effect of that, I've been able to shorten my party Pokemon used in battles in-game to about 2 or 3, whereas I always used to use 6 evenly-trained Pokemon - which mean't I would be stuck at E4's for quite a while
I TRY to not use Repels all the time but it gets to the point where you're exploring the Castelia Sewers when you realise you actually need repels to get through these places. Who hasn't used a repel in Castelia Sewers?
my new big thing for gen five is dex completion. i'm getting sick of eggs not being produced
i use to avoid all trainers possible! but now i try to battle as many as possible.
the only hold item i use to ever use was the XP share. just now starting with generation 5, I've been using other items to power up my team's moves, and gain more XP while training.
I used to try to get through every area quickly but now I do not leave until I've captured every single Pokemon available in the area.
Note: Repels really help with shaking grass and audino grinding.
Pokemon Leaf Green:
I now use a main team, which I didn't do at first. At first, I would have like 3 or 4 Pokemon that I always kept in my team, and then the rest of the team members were just Pokemon from the recent area. This happened in my first 2 Pokemon games, Diamond and SoulSilver, but stopped when I needed a Fire Type for Candice's gym and I chose Ponyta and let's not go into that story. But, long story short, I didn't used to use proper main teams, and now I do.
And I also use Repels more often now.
That's all I can think of right now.
