    Breeding is one thing, but when I have to pay attention...how do shiny hunters do it?

    Most shiny hunters do it for the value, and feel that RNGing takes away from it.

    I don't RNG because I find it to be a pain to learn, and since I breed most of the time, it actually isn't that important.

    Yeah, learning RNG abuse takes a while, but the rewards are great. You spend A LOT less time putting teams together, which gives you more time to play with it.

    But it loses ALL the fun if you download pokemon :/
    At least for me, i always loved breeding and Sring, even after learning how to RNG i still do.
    Its so fun to o things yourself instead of just doing that imo
    i ont judge whomever does that tho, not everyone has the time or the oportunity to breed their team or just sit around SRing or RNGing

    that is what i do when not getting perfect IV's.
    lets put it this way:
    the ones that aren't for competitive i kinda love as family
    the ones that are for competitive i still love, but they are kind of like traded players on a football team. they aren't my direct fam, but i make sure they are the best of the best.

    Well you could just "pay" or ask to a friend to breed or RNG omething for you xD
    I mean... i'm thinking about opening a trade shop but one of the rules will be that i only want unique pokemon, and by that i mean if i pokechek them i want to be unique in there... because having pokemons that people already have is like that im working for nothing since i could just download them.
    IŞ mean... why work if i can have them for free right?
    But i actually wanna "work", i get more satisfaction out of it ><
    I ont mind playing against people that use pokesav for example, or that download pokemons from pokecheck... i wanna have a great match xD
    Each one does what he can... i understand that, i really do x) and no one will be less of a trainer or battler or whatever just because they ont o that themselves you know?
    is just like i said before... not everyone has the means nor the time for that.
    Just enjoy the game your way x)

    I'll admit, I also get a lot of satisfaction out of breeding pokemon. The only thing that annoys me is soft resetting legendaries, but I still get satisfaction after I'm done with the SRing part.

    Also, even though it's been ages since I've tried it, Pokecheck just plain confuses me. I never managed to get it to work, and I don't understand how it works either.

    I think we ought to get to some stopping point with obtaining Pokémon in this thread. Pokécheck, or any of the sort can be equivalent to using 3rd party means. Anyhow, instead of Darkrai I'll choose Mewtwo. There should be a few Pokémon to get taunted.

    Pokemon cannot use Sky Drop or Dark Void in battle.
    Hmm, so this basically prohibits the USE of it right? Meaning having either on a Pokemon while battling would be equivalent to that Pokemon only having three moves right? Or would it just be prohibited altogether?

    I spent a while ev training my Kyuren-w and a few other pokemon just for this. I have a full sand team, but, going against a bunch of Ubers will not be fun unless i bring my own.
    85% of statistics are made up on the spot, don't bother putting this in your signature, because i made this statistic up too.

    I usually don't use legendaries, but meh. If that's the rules of theis tourney, so be it. Do like how it's rotationals, albeit I would have preferred the eeveelution cup. On a random note, who do you talk to to get your favorite poke registered on your trainer card? the one that appears next to you?


    Still thinking fo a team, only know of 2 of 6 for sure.

    edit: Anyone that played the last JP tourney that allowed legendaries, was dark void allowed? Or is that stil banned despite darkrai being allowed. mmmm, lums.

    Well, there is a link to the rules on the front post. I didn't really check them out at first, but turns out Dark Void is banned.

    Kind of weird, since this isn't doubles, but I suppose all it means is that I won't have to waste a turn making my Whimscott use Safeguard.

    If I decide to sign up for this tourney I'll have to brush up on my Rotation battle skills. Also my stance on using Legendaries is still the same as it was when I first got back into Pokemon! REAL TRAINERS DON'T USE LEGENDARIES!!!

    Why not use legendaries? In OU, where they're more balanced with other pokemon, it's fine, but in an Ubers tournament...I hope you like losing, and a lot of it.

    And besides, is it really unfair to use a Palkia against someone if they are using Dialga?

    If you want to win competitively, you have to learn to separate it from in-game. They're completely different.

    I think I have everyone trained. Wish I could test them out cause I'm still not sure about some movesets. Don't know if they are gonna work or not. I gotta find more wings to finish up one guy.

    I said IF I decide to join! Although I've battled many People with Legendaries in Pokemon Battle Revolution and won! So well see... When I enter tourney's I just play to have fun And non EV'ed Legends can be bested with the right moves.

    Well, what division are you in? If you're in masters, most will probably be better then what you saw on battle revolution, and will have EV trained their pokemon.

    At least, judging from the last tourny, even if it was doubles...
